My Demon Queen
Medical report Huh?
I mulled over the documents required to register Liliath as a citizen of Gilgamesh.
Oh right. I haven't explain where the frick Gilgamesh actually is huh? It's actually a fairly recent country built around 70 years ago.
It's an island like Singapore below the right wing of Russia, Hokkaido to the left and the United States to the right. It's a raised-to-land region of the emperor seamounts in the North Pacific Ocean. And it's MAN-MADE.
Man made you say? Yeah. A lunatic named Gilgamesh, the founder of this country had an incredibly stupid TALENT. Rather, the story goes like this.
One day Gilgamesh was flying from Japan to the United States. His plane crash— whoosh— dramatic sound effect— WHOOPOSSSHH. BBBOOOOOMM.
Nope. It's more like-- bloop.
The plane didn't explode. It just floated on the water. The engine apparently shut down all by itself. And the system denied access to the pilot. I don't know what that means but the plane basically crashed.
And so, the survivors were out at sea.. and people were 'dying'..
And so Gilgamesh who's had a sort of earth mounding TALENT he apparently doesn't use all that much managed to raise a small piece of land from the sea, and that was basically what saved the survivors. Though I imagine how disgusting the sea bed was.. welp. Creatures caught up in Gilgamesh's TALENT became free food. There has got to be someone in there with fire magic or water purification TALENT so a good number of people survived when rescue arrived a month later.
That small land Gilgamesh created— became the impetus that became the Gilgamesh we all know and loved today. Gilgamesh spent his life raising the sea bed of the emperor seamounts— that's why it no longer exists today.
And that's how this literally man-made country was created.
The other details pertaining how the fuck development happened so quickly after the Second World War was a mystery. My grandparents were converted Gilgamesh citizens. So you could say Gilgamesh is one of the most impossible country built till date. Everything is.. artificial.. so to speak
Like heck, even the trees and grass we have here had to be imported from other countries.. It basically started at ground zero.
So basically, I'm living a dream— Gilgamesh's dream. He never had the chance to experience the country he built— my condolences..
Eh wait. Where was I? Oh right. Medical report. Um, mom and father already knows about it so all we need to do is notify Liliath. I wonder if demon lords are scared of needles?
The car pulled up into a parking lot and we went inside Prune's restaurant. Is it just me or did I just realize that Prune has a rather pitiful name? No, perhaps the restaurant is named after prune and not the other way around.
We were guided to a private room that was separated from the main dining hall.
A large round table and cushioned seats, table wares prepared in abundance— no fork and knives though.
I glanced at Liliath. She averted my gaze.
What's up with that?
I sat down— Liliath to the left, my father to the right. My father to the left of my mother and Liliath to the right of Novelle.
Hm.. this is a weird getup. Why was everyone sitting so close together..?
Something is suspicious. My father usually sat opposite to me.
"Do your best Liliath," My mother cheered.
Liliath nodded with a serious expression, and I looked at their exchange dumbfounded.
"You can do it Noel. As a father, I am proud that you got yourself a girl at this age,". My father came close and whispered this to my ear with a smirk.
"What do you mean by that?" I raised an eyebrow.
"You'll see, You'll see.."
Shit. Something scary is about to happen isn't it..
What is this.. The person behind this must be Liliath right? It has to be..
The waiter— Prune, surprisingly, came over with the menu. Those wolf ears piqued my father's interest. If he hadn't raised self-constraint, I could imagine him asking some pretty weird stuff like— can I do your ears or bushy tail? My father wasn't around when Prune got her TALENT so it was no wonder a surprise.
And— I'm sad to inform you of this but Prune wasn't wearing some maid costume, just normal clothes, don't let your expectations run to high peeps.
This time around, Liliath made the option to choose a dish. Last time it was all on mom since she knew the regular dishes to order and Liliath was still new to it all. This time around, it was sort of a special dinner to celebrate and welcome Liliath— officially.
Liliath got a weird dumpling thing.. Is that... ghost pepper sauce?!
"Are you sure? This might be very spicy you know?" My mom decided to warn.
"I don't think you should.." Prune advised..
Hm.. Prune is no longer scared of Liliath? What's up with that? It's good and all but it doesn't make sense. Liliath generates an aura that scares other creatures away right? So how come it's no longer affecting Prune?
"Spicy?" Liliath asked.
Ah seriously? Liliath doesn't know spicy? WWWWHHHHUUUTT?! And she's aiming straight for the boss?!
Liliath, you shouldn't order that.. please.. you will die.. or at least feel like dying.. trust me..
I retorted in my mind. And fortunately she changed her mind
Liliath chose something tofu instead.
"This pudding— did I say something wrong?" Liliath pointed at the dish... noticing the weird look on Prune's face she asked
"N-nothing. That's tofu."
"Tofu? The legendary tofu dish?!" Liliath opened her eyes wide in surprise.
To Liliath apparently, tofu is legendary.
"Uh.. yeah.." Prune took two steps backwards.
"Then could you please?"
"'Could you please'.. what do you mean?"
"The Princess here plays arounds with words a lot.. basically she just means, yes add that to the menu," my father chided.
"Hah?" Prune seemed to fall into a processor issue. Um.. give her a second to process it all, um..
"Could It be that my speech is weird," Liliath asked.
"I think it's unique. Just go with it, no problems there," my father shrugged.
"It makes big sister Liliath feel more like a Princess.. though, big sister really is a Princess though.." the little devil commented.
"There's a lot I don't know hah..." Prune said in a weak voice, jotting down Liliath's order.
The dishes were finally settled and so was the same for drinks— Liliath opted for iced tea.. a tea wizard indeed.
While waiting, my father took a sauce plate, added chilly, garlic and soy sauce to create a mix. Liliath looked at the scene confused.
"Ah? You've never seen this? It's called self service," my father said, pouring the soy sauce.
"I didn't see this the last time I came?"
"That's because only my husband eats the chilies." My mom added.
"Heh?" My father looked at Liliath, then at me in astonishment.
What? Now you know how much of an out of place goldfish Liliath is now?
"You should try some," my father smirked.
"Then I'll gladly accept."
"Liliath.. you've never eaten anything spicy.. are you sure? I don't recommend it.."
Seriously Liliath.. no.. don't..
"Is there anything wrong?"
"Noel, you can't be too overprotective can you now?" My mom laughed.
Seriously... I didn't know how to retort my mom there.. I'm i overprotective? Perhaps… I suppose I should let Liliath try a bunch of different things in this world that she couldn't experience back in her world.
My father mixed another sauce plate worth of soy sauce and chilli-- without garlic-- and passed it to Liliath.
Liliath was about to dip her chopsticks and have a taste when my father stopped her saying that it should be eaten together with the dishes.
The dishes came in accordance and then we started the meal.
