My Demon Queen
BLARE. BLARE. BLARE.
I raised my body up from the bed and glared at my phone before shutting the alarm off.
Stretching my arms, I got out of bed, took my uniform and headed out my room.
It was Nine. A surprising note is that she wakes up super early. It's 5 am and here I am, seeing Nine who's all dressed, brushing her teeth.
Gargling the water in her mouth, she spit it out before rinsing her toothbrush.
"If anything, I'll use the other bathroom."
"Ah, wait," rinsing her mouth, then wiping it with a towel, "I'm good, you head on in."
"Thanks," yawning, I took a shower. I made sure I chased Nine outside. Not that 'she' would be interested in another males' body.
Huh.. what if the reason why she prefers her female form is because she's into female mastur..
That's just confusing.. if it were me, I think I would prefer to stay a male and use my female form during emergencies.
Ahem, that aside.
Finishing my shower-- I just realized a super important point… I forgot to bring my own towel.. I left it on the chair to dry. Awh fuck.
I checked the bathroom for any spare clean towels-- unfortunately, there wasn't, I remember that I forgot to arrange it here. That however, didn't mean there wasn't any.. I think that towel over there is Liliath's one. She left it here to dry.
Fuck. I can't believe this is actually happening.
What are my choices?
A: Use Liliath's towel and toss it right into the washing machine. Afterwards tell her to get a new towel.
B: Call for Nine's help.
C: Rush out into the wild and quickly escape into my room, hoping that no one is outside.
"Seriously now.." pressing my finger to my forehead.
My uniform is already here..
I think A is the best option.. that is if i'm alright with using a towel LIilath used before.. ugghh..
But there were many instances of us sharing towels back at home right? Liliath didn't seem to mind, not even a bit.
Then again, there is option B but.. who the fuck knows what Nine could do in my room? She could practically set a bomb there.
But.. It's the safest choice of the three.
C is out. No way am I going to run outside naked.
Else, option D-- wipe myself using toilet paper.
Option A is the best.. It's not like I have never used Liliath's towel..
"I'm sorry Liliath," I dried myself with the towel and put my clothes on before exiting.
"Good morning Noel," Liliath who sat on the living room couch voiced. A glass of water would be seen placed on the low table.
"Morning Liliath, you okay?"
"As usual, thank you," Liliath showed a slightly forced smile, which only confused me more.
It started yesterday after recess. Liliath was obviously crestfallen. Hah.. I wonder why?
Liliath took her towel and proceeded to the bathroom, passing me, she spoke in a low tone.
"I'll go wash up."
As Liliath's soft foot steps continued to resound behind me, I thought...
So if the towel I used wasn't Liliath's..
Tossing the clothes and towel into the washing machine-- 3 sets of girl uniforms that is… including the panties and the like, I shut the door of the washing machine before adding the detergent and adjusting the setting to clean.
After Liliath got out of the bath, I quickly swapped the towel inside for a clean one. The towel-- who I don't know the owner to-- was now spinning inside the whirlwind of bubbles. I stared at it blankly, wondering if the towel was Nine's or Prune's.
Shaking my head to get rid of the thought, I went to the kitchen where Liliath was. I found myself mesmerized by the view of her back as she was cooking food for breakfast.
Liliath turned around, her ponytail sway as she looked at me. Meanwhile, her hands that had been stirring the food in the pan were still moving.
"Sorry, um. Let me help."
Liliath nodded with a smile and I walked up beside her. I tossed the leftover chicken wings into the rice cooker-- a cheap and efficient way of steaming food. The flavors of the chicken would also seep into the rice so there isn't any waste. Though the chicken wing would come out a little blander in the end.
"Noel, can you pass me the miso paste?"
"Yeah, got it,"
Passing her the jar, Liliath skillfully mixed the necessary amount into the soup to condense the broth, adding mushrooms and dried seaweed she had bought prior.
Truthfully speaking, I wonder if Liliath was someone who already knew how to cook? But when I asked her about it, she said she only learnt it recently.. for her skills to already exceed mine in such a short time..
I can only cook proper instant noodles for fuck sake.
I have to thank my mom and Prune for teaching her. She has become a full fledged housewife.
"Try some," Liliath held the ladle of miso soup to my face. It was obvious what she was trying to do.
"How is it? Any lack of flavour?"
"I think it's alright."
"Alright," Liliath tried the soup herself-- it was literally an indirect kiss using a ladle. She continued to boil the soup and soon placed it on the lid of the pot and extinguished the fire.
Around this time, Prune woke up. Her hair was an absolute mess-- her tail was a white ball of fur-mess. Which led me to wonder how she cleans her tail in the first place.
"Morning Liliath-- Noel," Prune, greeted with half-closed eyes.
Returning our own greetings, Prune took to the bathroom.
Liliath looked into my eyes, and I did the same.
She brought me into her embrace. Since there was an obvious difference in height, her head ended up where my chest was.
Though, that wasn't the main issue.
Surprising myself at my own calm voice, I caressed her beautiful velvet hair. Of course, taking care to not mess it up like last time.
"Who was that person.. from yesterday."
"Huh? Who was that--"
Ah.. her huh..
I could only guess her reaction was something to do with my encounter with Rishelle. And about her.. fortunately, her voice is no longer ringing in my ear.
Huh? I'm still thinking about her though?
Ah fuck, whatever. She will disappear from my memories in time.
"Remember the first time we came to the school-- the big auditorium with the boring speeches."
"I think it was the emcee whose voice could hypnotize people."
Liliath didn't reply, we remained like that for a while.
That was until Prune called out to us awkwardly.
"U-Um.. sorry to disturb you two.. someone put my towel to wash right?"
"Y-yeah, I put it to wash since.."
"G-got it, I'll just take the new one."
Prune turned around and left for the bathroom.
Still clinging to me, Liliath looked up with upturned eyes before her eyes narrowed to a slit. Shifting her hand forward, she pinched my hair before pulling it.
A tuft of white hair could be seen.
I felt a cold sweat run down my back.
"S-sorry…!It was an accident. I swear!"
It was an accident, definitely an accident!!
Liliath only chuckled.
She then tightened her embrace, I felt like my spine was about to be crushed from the force Liliath, I'M SORRY! I'M SORRY! SO SPARE ME, PLEASE!?
As if Liliath heard my pleas, she relaxed and pulled away from me with a frown.
"Sorry.." I hung my head.
Liliath then held my face with both her hands and had me stare right into her eyes. A sharp, decisiveness could be seen from within. Then she said in a serious tone.
"Noel is mine and mine only, got that?"
"Heh? Yeah.. huh?"
Liliath pulled away-- rather, she disappeared again before I could confirm anything.
The next thing I knew it, I felt like my cheeks had just touched something soft and warm.
Mysterious as always… damn.
Not that it was bad though..
