My Demon Queen
Outside his room, I fell to my knees.
This was for the best wasn't it?
I could still acquire the philosopher stone in this way? Not betray him whilst achieving my goal?
It's impossible to fight it.. this instinct..
No matter the difficulty, I am to be awakened as a demon queen. Try as I might, there was no way to deprive myself of this fate..
Such was ingrained within me as a pre-demon queen.
If only I never saw the philosopher's stone.. how would my life be now?
Getting back up, I heard a rustling noise from a distance. I also sensed Diana-Sama's presence in that direction. She wasn't in her room.
I gingerly treaded forward.
Light leaked from the half-door to the office.
I could hear Diana-sama's voice together with an unknown person.
"So he's in possession of a troublesome TALENT. But I think it's a man's dream," a giggle of a male.
"What do you think of my proposal dear? Since the current tenant has plans to move out of the property there, I think it's a chance for him to learn how to live independently."
"It's perfect. The typical setting where the protagonist stays together with another girl in the same dorm. A development is bound to happen! —But it has already started hasn't it... Those photos of Noel together with her are real aren't they?"
Diana-sama and an unknown person conversing in the sanctuary containing my favorite books. Novelle-sama was the first person to introduce me to this location.
Should I ask Diana-sama for recommendations? Lately, I've been able to keep my reading out of Noel's sight. Though I know I would run out of material soon.
Pardon my desires oh high heavens.
I pushed open the door.
Diana-sama looked at me bewildered.
"Honey? What's wrong," the machine seemed to be speaking? How, the voice sounded too human-like to be called a machine. A homunculus?
"It's Liliath," Diana-sama replied to the flat machine that looked like a television.
I remember Novelle-sama teaching me about a lap top, could this be the same thing?
"Liliath, can you come here?"
I followed her instructions obediently.
So it is similar to the lap top.
On the screen I could see a person's face— he resembled Noel.. his father?
"Could you perhaps be Noel's father?"
"Good guess," he struck a pose. It seemed that he was stuck inside the lap top, an abstract painting could be seen in the background. "Nice to meet you Liliath. You can call me Dylan, Noel's father. Wow, you really do have reddish colored hair."
"Thank you, I am undeserving of that praise. I-it's an honor to meet you Dylan-sa.."
"Were you just about to add honorifics there? That's nice but unnecessary, it'll only make you look like you're cosplaying," he laughed.
Cosplaying? I've never heard of that word before?
I feel that Novelle-sama takes up her father Dylan-sama while Noel-sama resembles more of Diana-Sama's personality.
"Now onto the main topic. What do you think about living together with Noel, Liliath?" Diana-sama passed this question to me. Dylan-sama seemed eager to listen to my answer.
"Am I currently not living together with Noel?"
What a confusing question.
However, with my remarks, the confusion only became even more profound with Dylan-sama bawling out in laughter.
"I see. Honey, I think your suggestion is great. Noel needs to grow as a man."
"Then we'll go with this plan then. In this way, we can save some cost on accommodation."
"Should I leave? Is this something I shouldn't be hearing?"
There was some information I couldn't quite understand. Me with Noel? Plan? Save cost on accommodation? What about property? What do these links refer to? How does it relate to me and Noel?
"Keep it a secret from Noel alright Liliath," Diana placed her finger on her lips, I saw Dylan-sama grinning, "I'm planning to move you two to an apartment after the holiday when school opens so that you can learn how to live independently."
I tilted my head.
Me and Noel?
Just the both of us?
I still don't understand?
