The Netherworld : Awakening
enough for a human to pass through.
"Hmmm, so you aren't just smart and sneaky but also are strong."
I said it while reading the book which was in front of me. The title of the book is 'Birth After Death'."Just who do you think I am? And what's with that voice, trying to imitate some Demon King."
I lowered the book which I was reading a moment ago.
"No, I am not imitating some Demon King. I am just trying to be myself."
She says it casually, without a hint of surprise in her voice, as if stating the obvious. Okay, even though it's an obvious thing, but still I want her to give me a bit more of a reaction than that.
"Yes, they just started growing big all of a sudden. You don't look so surprised seeing them."
"I don't think you have the right to say that."
"No, not at all. So, do you want anything from me?"
"Don't act like you don't know anything. What? Trying to escape from reality."
If there was a way to escape from this reality then would have already--no, there is no merit in thinking something which isn't plausible in the first place.
"Tch. No point in arguing with you. So, what are you going to do about the current situation?"
"Hmmm, never thought there would come a situation when the Hell would be in such a dire situation.""I know it's pointless to even consider this, but there aren't many, so, do you think you can do something about it?"
"It depends--""Well, don't answer. Forget everything I just said. I don't think you can do anything befitting."
Damn, this half-demon half-human. She did it on purpose. I know that.she suddenly twitched as if she realized something. Then she started blabbering while pointing a finger towards me.
"And wait, I should have asked this earlier---no, the moment I entered here, but why are you sitting on top of the pile of books? These initially were the books read by the fourth Demon King. You can't just pile them up and sit on them.""Oh! This, it's just an old habit of mine. Whenever I read a book, I either read them while
sitting on top of them or while covered by them."
"Are you seriously a human, I mean I am half-human but am more mannered than you. Leaving that aside, what are we going to do now? It's not like we have a lot of time to spare, and if the current situation keeps on escalating, then the Hell is destined to get annihilated by demons."
******, ******** and few more demons like them."
"Do you think they would help us? I don't think so?" Well, of course, she would think that because I haven't told her everything. "And I don't think you can take down any duke of hell forget about some general of the demon king."
"Seriously, that's what you think of me? You are cruel."
"Huh? I know that."
"Oh! Thanks for the compliment."
"Just who are you calling a Tsundere? I will murder you."
"Seriously taking things lightly. Do you think we---no, I can do anything alone just because I am smart, sneaky and strong?"
"But, I am also---."Before I could even finish saying it, she started disparaging me.
"What? You are still not aware of your uselessness. That's weird."
Then a loud sound entered our earhole with a gust of wind entering the room.
"What was that?"
We ran out to see what was going on. It is the worst possible thing for us.
I wish I had known that day when I was summoned here that this is the future(it still will be 'past' from his point of view) I will be facing.
Only if I had known about this that day. Then nothing like this would have happened.No, there is nothing I could have done even if I knew about this future. Because--
This future will always come, no matter what.
