Chapter 49:

Otherworld Church (3)

My Demon Queen

W-what does this mean?Bookmark here

"I'm sorry.. I thought the quest was impossible.. so.."Bookmark here

Seeing the anguish on his face and understanding what Noel meant, I decided that it wasn't a big deal. Though I wish he would've consulted me about it before doing so..Bookmark here

"It's alright, how about we focus on the other quests instead?"Bookmark here

"Y-yeah.."Bookmark here

"What.. you actually got rid of that one? It was worth 200 points though?"Bookmark here

Both Noel and I glared at Dylan-sama. We knew what he referred to. At least Noel had the tact to remove that task for the sake in which I never set my eyes on those words ever again.Bookmark here

"Pfft.. you two are one of a kind."Bookmark here

"Great.. " Noel muttered before returning his gaze to his phone.Bookmark here

One of a kind..Bookmark here

Noel showed me the quests, I memorized the tasks to do..Bookmark here

The only one I could possibly do would be to lean on Noel's shoulder— though I thought it was embarrassing so I would refrain from that for now.. but I'll seek for when the chance comes.Bookmark here

Also, pertaining to the special quests, it seemed that there would only be a new task once the week ends.Bookmark here

After lunch, we were to visit Trisha in her office.Bookmark here

"Welcome back," she spoke with a smile. "Do you mind taking a seat over there, Liliath, please take a seat here."Bookmark here

I sat down on the cushion chair beside Trisha's desk which had stacks of paper and a laptop-like screen device arranged on top.Bookmark here

Trisha took out a small hand-held machine that emitted light from the triangular tip.Bookmark here

"Alright, please open your mouth."Bookmark here

She examined my mouth, ears, nose and eyes. Deeming that there were no problems, she then had me read letters on a poster a distance away.Bookmark here

"Everything is good, but there's something of concern for your X-ray.."Bookmark here

Trisha pulled out a black sheet from a large envelope— the picture of bones, were they mine?Bookmark here

"I don't think there's really a hole here, do you have any ideas what this may be?" Trisha pointed to the left chest cavity of the skeleton— my skeleton. There was a vast black region, and in the middle was a small white dot. It looked as if a hole had been drilled directly through my chest.Bookmark here

I pressed on my own chest to find no anomaly, my bones were still there. Then why was there a gaping hole?Bookmark here

"If that's the case then we would need to do further tests," Trisha spoke.Bookmark here

So did that mean I failed? I felt relieved at her words though.Bookmark here

"Doctor, wait, lemme to speak to Liliath for a bit," Noel stood up from his seat all of a sudden.Bookmark here

"Do you have an idea what this is?" Trisha asked.Bookmark here

"Kinda.." Noel said in an aversive manner, then whispered into my ear, "It's the Philosopher's Stone."Bookmark here

AH?!Bookmark here

That's correct.. the philosopher's stone is located right in my heart which meant that..Bookmark here

Bookmark here

What should I do? I've been found out?!Bookmark here

"Um. Maybe it's best if you the the doctor the truth? " Noel recommended, showing me a wary look.Bookmark here

Noel did tell me that demon lords are a welcomed existence in this world..Bookmark here

"A Philosopher's Stone?"Bookmark here

"Uh.. Liliath.. you're turn.."Bookmark here

Looked like Trisha catch the contents of what Noel had whispered… What should I do? WHAT SHOULD I DO?Bookmark here

"It's confidential information, I won't share it elsewhere. I just need to know the reason just in case this is something serious," Trisha spoke with a smile.Bookmark here

I glanced at Noel again, he gave me a nod.Bookmark here

So there was no way to hide my identity after all.. It would be found out eventually.. but if Noel says it's fine then..Bookmark here

I allowed my horns to manifest, raising my head to look at Trisha who held a look of bewilderment.Bookmark here

"I'm a demon.. that's why there is such an object therelain within my heart.."Bookmark here

"Sorry, but I'll follow up a bit. I think the Philosopher's Stone has some sort of electromagnetic field that messed up the X-ray," Noel spoke to supply my meek explanation.Bookmark here

"A demon.. incredible. You've got yourself an incredible summon.. anyways, I would need to check on this, so could I ask you two to wait outside for a moment?"Bookmark here

"Uh yeah sure.."Bookmark here

"So you're saying Liliath was a Demon Lord all along?!"Bookmark here

"Yeah, yeah.."Bookmark here

It was exposed to Dylan-sama, and it seemed to be an amazing discovery, his eyes were shining in a scary light.. similar to the time he saw that beastkin.Bookmark here

"Noel.."Bookmark here

"It's alright Liliath, I told you before, there isn't any prejudice against demons in this world.. plus, you're probably the first ever demon to ever come to this world."Bookmark here

I glanced at Trisha with a composed expression and then back at Noel.Bookmark here

Was it truly alright? Why did Trisha need them to leave?Bookmark here

"Can't they stay?" I asked.Bookmark here

"If you don't mind letting them see your breast then yes, they can stay."Bookmark here

See my breasts?Bookmark here

"Sorry Liliath, we're getting out. The doctor isn't going to harm you alright?" Dylan-sama said.Bookmark here

Trisha nodded at Noel's words.Bookmark here

"It's alright Liliath," I didn't know when it happened but Noel caressed the top of my head. "I can count on you, right doctor?"Bookmark here

"Of course."Bookmark here

"You'll be alright," Noel's hand left me and he exited, dragging Dylan-sama along with him.Bookmark here

Was this alright?Bookmark here

"I'll be feeling your chest for a bit, so.." Trisha took off from her seat and came to my side.Bookmark here

I closed my eyes in fright.Bookmark here

What was she going to do?Bookmark here

No, calm down. I feel no hostility from her, her aura is weak and if I ever feel threatened, I could always kill her. There is nothing to fear.Bookmark here

I took in a deep breath and composed myself.Bookmark here

"I'm ready."Bookmark here

"Alright then."Bookmark here
