My Demon Queen


Tea.. wonderful tea..Bookmark here

Right. Let's forget I saw anything. I didn't see her white panties, nor did I see her blood. I didn't see her in clothes soaking wet, her wet hair glimmering with dew and her bewildered expression when I tried to pass her another set of clothes to change into.Bookmark here

Yes.Bookmark here

I saw nothing.Bookmark here

Now to drink tea.Bookmark here

I brought the cup to my lips.. then stopped.Bookmark here

We have milk in the fridge right?Bookmark here

Slowly, I placed the cup back down on the coaster.Bookmark here

I raised my head and took a peek at Liliath who sat across me— to find that she was doing the same.Bookmark here

Gulp.Bookmark here

She averted her gaze by looking into her own cup of tea. With her hands she bobbed the tea bag up and down.Bookmark here

Earl grey tea.Bookmark here

And she looked so cute being flustered.. but I'm sure I could say the same for myself— not that I'm cute in any way— period.Bookmark here

I got up from my seat and walked over to the fridge. I took out the cartoon of milk and brought it to the kitchen table. There I sat down again— Liliath staring at the milk carton in wonder.Bookmark here

She's inquisitive... but she doesn't really ask about it.Bookmark here

"Do you want some milk to add to the tea?" I asked,Bookmark here

"Adding milk to tea?" She spoke in a surprised tone that was as if I never saw her in wet clothing.. oops. I saw nothing, I saw nothing.Bookmark here

"Yeah."Bookmark here

To demonstrate, I added milk to my own drink. The clear brownish drink turned a beautiful oqueue peach.Bookmark here

"I think I would like to try," Liliath said after witnessing the transformation.Bookmark here

"Here."Bookmark here

"Thank you. How much should I add?"Bookmark here

"Based on your intuition."Bookmark here

"I see.."Bookmark here

Liliath spoke as if nodding.Bookmark here

She took the milk carton and tilted it sideways— milk flowed out and mixed with her tea.Bookmark here

Then she had me pass her the carton cap before she sealed the milk back into its packaging.Bookmark here

She struggled with the twisting mechanisms but got it right after a few attempts. Seeing her try like that is cute.Bookmark here

Hm.. what is it that I'm forgetting here? I feel like there's something I should do at this sort of time.Bookmark here

Liliath took a taste, I did the same.Bookmark here

"It certainly has an otherworldly taste. It's surprising every time to learn these simple things that I could've done in the past but never thought to do so." She commented.Bookmark here

"Well. You get to experience them in my world now."Bookmark here

"I prefer the normal tea though. But this is refreshing once in a while."Bookmark here

"I guess so."Bookmark here

We sat there, just drinking tea.Bookmark here

Nothing to talk about, just there, present in the moment. Me and Liliath.Bookmark here

This is kinda relaxing..Bookmark here

"Um.. Noel."Bookmark here

"Yes?"Bookmark here

"You saw it right?"Bookmark here

"Saw it?"Bookmark here

Clam down. Calm down. I saw nothing. Hnnnnnggg...Bookmark here

The image of her white panties come to mind and I drive that scene away into oblivion.Bookmark here

"Then how did you know?"Bookmark here

I saw nothing... I wouldn't have known if I didn't see it.. Hnnng... what should I do.. hnngg.Bookmark here

Liliath noticed my silence and her face was becoming progressively redder.Bookmark here

Ah crap. I know what's coming.. she's going to curl up into a ball soon if I don't do something...Bookmark here

What should I say? Do I just confess that I saw her panties? I think saying that would become the perfect invitation for a slap. I wished the quest board had a quest like that.. no, I take back my words.Bookmark here

Quest board...Bookmark here

THAT'S IT!Bookmark here

"It's a guess on my part.. I kinda saw it on my phone.. the quest board."Bookmark here

"I-is that so?"Bookmark here

No.. I absolutely saw it with my two eyes.Bookmark here

I showed Liliath the quest board once again.Bookmark here

Ah.. I should really just get rid of that quest already.. it's impossible to find Liliath's favorite food.Bookmark here

"I see. So that's what this word means.." Liliath spoke in a far away tone. "But that still doesn't explain how you knew it would happen today.."Bookmark here

"It's a guess?"I spoke with a smile.Bookmark here

"Liar."She looked at me as if I were a wild beast.Bookmark here

"..."Bookmark here

"You saw it, you definitely saw it!"Bookmark here

"Fine. I admit. I saw it, got a problem with that?" I didn't know why but I could feel myself smirking at her.. oh no. I'm getting infected by the little devil— my sister— not good, i[ms becoming a devil myself.Bookmark here

Liliath trembled.. and then crawled up into a ball.Bookmark here

Ah great...Bookmark here

"Cute.."Bookmark here

"D-did you say anything?" Liliath asked in a wary tone with her head still buried between her knees.Bookmark here

"You're cute Liliath."Bookmark here

She replied after a moment of silence, "I-I know you did it for the sake of p-points. But, I'll take that as a compliment.."Bookmark here

Ah yeah. I know. I totally said that 'only' for the sake of cute Liliath.Bookmark here

What.. I'm I turning into a sadist? Bullying Liliath like this?Bookmark here

"Sorry."Bookmark here

It's still an odd sensation every time whenever Liliath curls up into a ball. I'm sure it's a habit she picked up back during her slave days— I hope it doesn't really signify that I'm hurting her..Bookmark here

She shook her head, then looked up at me with a bitter smile.Bookmark here

"Did you feel anything when y-you saw it?"Bookmark here

"N-no.. nothing particularly?"Bookmark here

She buried her head back between her knees.. I could almost imagine the steam coming out of her head.Bookmark here

"It's fine to let you see— r-right. There's no such taboo in this world c-correct?"Bookmark here

FINE TO LET ME SEE?!Bookmark here

Um.. sorry Liliath, I'm not getting you, pardon me could you repeat that?Bookmark here

"Can you clarify? Though I don't think there is a taboo like what you said but it's still inappropriate for me to see.."Bookmark here

"I-it is as you said.. so there is no such taboo?"Bookmark here

Honestly.. I'm wondering what she means... is there an ulterior motive? I hope so.. I'm a curious guy after all.Bookmark here

"I don't think I know the taboo you're talking about though? To begin with it's just nature running its course right?"Bookmark here

"I see.." Liliath didn't seem convinced.Bookmark here

But she managed to return to her uncurled state. She took a sip of the milk tea and then placing the cup back down, gave me a meaningful smile.Bookmark here

Uh.. that's just scary.. what is that supposed to mean? Did I do something? Oh yes I did something.. I saw her panties.. no I saw nothing.. I saw nothing..Bookmark here

"Um. Liliath, have you found out your favorite food yet?"Bookmark here

Liliath thought for a moment before giving me a negative.Bookmark here

I suppose I should just dump this quest. It's better to switch it out for something achievable. Like helping her deal with her period. 50 juicy point oh yeah~Bookmark here
