Chapter 6: The encounter with a demon
“I hope Uncle is okay…”
Miaka sighed as they headed to the inn. Touya kept glancing at Miaka as they walk. ‘I want to know…’ only the thoughts across his head while never noticing the two girls that were glaring at him.
The three were startled by the sounds that were comming inside the building. Then, a middle age man came out running for his life while a boy was chasing him. The three knew who the boy was but who was the old man?
“Hahaha, i almost died back there. Miaka, why didn’t you hide it?”
Hughes grief at her when he sat on the chair, Miaka only stick her tongue out while the three only observe the two. Haru had to borrow one of the rooms to sleep so they were only the four where in the room.
“But man, i never thought that you three are the same place as haru.”
Hughes was surprise that the three were summoned were the same world as haru. When he met him, the kid was easily scared of everything. But in the year after he had left on his journey, he had greatly change.
Hughes felt gloom that a young child was treated that way and had to carry a burden so heavy at such a young age.
“Um sir? Can you tell me more about Haru?”
As he was reminising, Touya questioned Hughes about Haru’s past. Miaka was about say it but she was covered by Hughes’ hand.
“Listen boy, you should not ask anything about his history. Ask when it is the right time. He had face some complications with his past and if you want to find out, you should go and ask him.”
Hughes then glared at Miaka.
“Brat, you know more about him than me, Why do you think he didn’t tell them himself?”
Miaka felt gloom after hearing Hughes words. Touya then stared Miaka.
Touya’s heart was beating fast when he stared at her. He was scared to find out the truth but he had mustered his courage and ask her about it.
“D-do you love him?”
Touya had voiced out the question, the two beside him was shocked and Hughes was impressed by him. Only Miaka stared at him with conviction.
“Yes…I love master…”
As she answered, his heart became gloom. But her words didn’t end there…
“…but he is in love with someone else.”
They were startled Miaka. Touya’s heart was ease when she had said that but they were curious to who had stolen that guy’s heart. As she was about say, Haru had clawed her before she could speak.
“Did say something, bitch?”
His face was ugly as she was just about to talk about’her’. Then, he threw her outside the inn. Everyone was shocked that he did that to a girl.
“You can hate me all you want but use that energy for the enemy.”
Just after they said those words…
*Bang* *Bang* *Bang*
A loud roar of explosions had startled them and then someone’s laughter arise.
“Hahaha. The demon king’s army shall rule you all. I, Graihlnol, shall purify these lands with blood and the world will face the wrath of the demons. You, people, shall now be sacrifice to our lord. Hail to the demon king!”
The five of them step outside, only to see a humanoid, flying. His facial feature and body were like humans but with horns on both sides of his head, wings of a bat and a tail. He had look like a devil as he shoots fireballs onto the people that had stood there.
“Ah! Its a demon!”
Many screams arise and people were running away from the incoming fireballs. Some of them were caught by the fire while some were hit by the falling debris that the fireball had cause. The three felt fear from many lives that were lost, even Moka could’t stomach to his and had vomitted. This really was something they never experience in their world. As they we in shock,
“The fuck are you guys doing? Do you want to stand there and fucking watch?”
The three were awoke by Haru’s voice. But their legs were shaking from fear. Haru only sighed at them. This was their first time seeing people died right in front of them.
“Hey Miaka, kill that asshole. The heroes are useless and i want you to go and teach these fuckers the reality of this world.”
As he said that, Miaka agreed and walk towards the demon.
