''A Slave contract. Apart from its curse , disobeying any order would trigger a penalty to the slave . It won't kill the slave but forced her to survive through all that pain.Its an absolutely cruel contract that was forbidden by our Demon King himself and not to mention no teachings or any type of record was to be publish or even talking or attempting it would result in death penalty. So why is it? Why is it that a mere human could create something like that? You what the hell are you?''
The mother was on her knees hearing that. Kiri seemed too shocked to even show a proper reaction. And with all that was going on a certain individual was focusing all his bloodlust on me. He was there sitting at one of the top seats.
The mother turned to him ''Dear? What should we do?''
Dear? So that means that dude up there is Kiri's father. Seemed like I made an enemy out of a terrible dude.
Everyone was out of order. Then someone from the top seat spoke.
''Human you are lucky to have held a noble demon daughter as your hostage. If not for that we would have dispose both you and your slave contract to your doom.''
''Hostage huh? Hmph. I See.Yo Kiri undo me off these chain.''
Kiri, still recovering out of her shock, slowly came and undo me. I could feel the disgust in everyone's eyes.
After all, they could only watch. Disobeying the contract would result in a penalty after all.
A voice different now came from the top seats.
''Human what do you wish by doing all this?''
''Nothing in particular after all I only came here out of curiosity.''
''Right now you are standing in front of the worst demons and you're staring death right in the face. Why is it that I sense no fear from you?''
''I don't really know how to answer that.( well if I had to say something. It's all been cliche for a while. I feel like I am living an anime but there is no way I can say that)''
''Even so for a mere human to invoke a forbidden contract it is impossible. I'm going to have to send someone to investigate your life.''
''I don't really mind but if you were to do something to my family then don't blame me what happen to your princess here.''
The crowd now anxious and looks at me with death glare and disgust.
Very well she replied, ''I assure you nothing will happen but we will interrogate them if we have too''
The moment she said that Kiri's mother stood up and said
''If that is the case let me do the investigation. I refuse to let some unknown human take control of my daughter like an animal.''
I was going to tell her off but for some reason my pity for Kiri and my conscience told her instead
''Very well, but don't forget your daughter life is in my hands.''
She looked at me and went back to her seat below her husband.
''For now the court is adjourned until further information. The Luxuria family will be responsible for the temporary protection, shelter as well as the human's needs.''
The mother exclaimed. ''We have to be responsible?''
''Well this is your daughter's failure looking at it from another viewpoint.''
'By the way before this court is adjourned. Human what is your name?''
I could feel everyone glaring at me at that moment.
Now that I think of it I haven't really introduce myself I guess and ''Since you're going to find out anyway my name is
Avareza L Ban, a normal college student living an ordinary life. Nothing more nothing less.''
The moment I mentioned my name the room filled with silence. I didn't like the vibe at all.''You can call me Ban the way everyone does and you mentioned something about adjourning so I'm going to head out. Don't worry, I won't run away. Kiri take me outside.''Kiri: Ohh mmm lets go.And we went out and everyone just watched.Kiri's father: Avareza... Coincidence?-Ban: Ahh that was hectic . I thought I was a goner back then. I guess luck is still on my side. Who would have thought I did something as crazy as that. Haha. This has turned out quite interesting I must say. Don't you think so Kiri?Kiri?--Are you still worried I might do something to you? Well I did say something back then but I didn't really mean it.Kiri: That's not really why I am down.Ban: Then why?Kiri: The fact that my whole family had to take responsibility for my failure and I even ended up a human slave. I don't know how I can face them later on even if they manage to fix our situation right now.She does ha
Meanwhile at the council of demons a meeting regarding the investigation of Ban is being held.Kiri's mother:As mentioned before, we will hold out an investigation regarding the human.''Lord Ira what do you think of this?''Lord Ira: Your daughter told us everything that happened in the human world. Hmph to think that a mere human was able to cast such a spell . No matter how you look at it something doesn't feel right. For one thing you need an intense amount of spiritual energy to invoke such a contract but strangely I don't feel anything of the sort.Kiri's Mother:That's true this is all too mysterious. My daughter said something about his insane presence but if even a lord could not see it I doubt my daughter's words but I don't think she was lying either.-Crowd anxious-A third voice spoke '' It's better you start the investigation right away. Head to the human world and find as many clues as you can ''Kiri's Mother: I will do so Lord Gula.Lord Gula: And one more thing. Find o
We took him home and cared for him as our own. As days went by he got along really well with his sister too. Dad got a promotion in his work soon after and even I got a decent job and we were more financially supported . We had our two sweet sons later on. His fellow orphans called him a curse but to us he was a blessing. Even after the church came back for him, we decided to keep him and officially adopted him. I had thought of times to tell him the truth but it always went past my mind. We are truly a family and I know he will accept the truth one day. I should have told him sooner but now he is gone to a place I don't even know exists. Say ma'am if it's possible can I see my son again?Lisa: That's up to your son to decide.After all he barges in our world on his own choice and has given me quite the trouble. Whether or not he chose to come back it's up to him. I'm more than happy if he leaves us alone but the current situation does not allow me. ( Wait if that is the case why didn't
-An hour ago-Melinda: Haha. So that actually happened. You are an interesting one human. To think you would drag a noble's daughter around like that. Ah that was an interesting story indeed I'm glad I haven't left for work yet.Ban: Still I can't believe your sister is this academy head and looking at its surroundings I'm sure it's quite the prestigious one at that.Kiri: Well whatever. Anyway sister is there anyway I can get this guy spiritual energy tested?Melinda: Under normal circumstances even demons would not get that chance. But I am curious about this human. So I will allow it. Let's see, come with me .She went to the drawer and took a silver ball that you would see in any magic anime. It's exactly what you think it is.Melinda: This orb will show you the strength of your spiritual energy as well as your color.Ban: My color?Melinda: You will know soon. This here is a low orb. It is used to test the spiritual strength of lesser demons and such. I don't know if it will work
Lord Ira: Do you hear yourself Melinda? What are you trying to say about getting a mere human measured at the Supreme orb?Melinda: I understand your concern but the fact that this human destroyed a high orb by a simple touch of his finger has piqued my interest and I know even the council found him suspicious that a mere human with almost no spiritual presence was able to form a contract with a demon. Let the orb show us the answers we seek.Lord Ira: Enough of this nons-Lord Gula: Very wellLord Ira: What are you trying to accomplish here, Lord Gula?Lord Gula: Honestly this case is annoying because of the lack of information we have. Right now we need as much intel as we can( and I am a bit curious as well)The other three lords kept silent and didn't really reject either.Lisa:( I want to say a few things now that I have done my investigation but something feels off. Lets me first see what is going to happen)Soon we were taken to an incredibly huge room. And right in the middle
Lord Ira: Lisa Luxuria do you mind explaining what exactly is going on.Lisa: I would like to hold a private conversation with the Lords.Lord Ira: Very well I believe you have a lot to say in that matter. You too Melinda as well as all Archdemons present in this room please head over to the conference room immediately. As for everyone else you are requested to standby and prevent the human from leaving the premise and Un- name daughter of the Luxuria familia you will be held responsible if the human escapes this building. That is all.Ban: Talk about harsh. I wonder what is going on. No one here seems to be sure what just happened and for some reason they are really keeping their distance. Am I a scary demon or something? I feel like my life is turning into one bad anime series. For now I should put back my rosary.-In the conference room-Lord Ira: So Lisa can you tell us your findings?Lisa: Upon investigation I found out that Ban is really just an ordinary human being or that is wh
Lord Ira: I haven't heard of that name since 200 years ago. To think that you would bring that up now. No, I think it's time we put it into consideration. Has the demon Lord Lucifer Avareza really reincarnated. I wonder what the Demon King will think of this situation.
Lord Ira: You're going home? Too bad but we cannot allow you to leave this place. You are too much of a mystery to just let go. The council had already decided to hold you until we figure out what you truly are. Until then you will be under the charge of the Luxurai familia and they will be responsible for your well being.Ban: I didn't say I'm leaving this place.
