My Demon Queen
The next thing I knew, I woke up in a white space. White quartz pillars that seem to extend to the infinite sky, golden liquid flowing down from above and collected in the pool surrounding the pillars below.
I looked at myself, clothes tattered, blood everywhere but the wounds were gone.
"Hello," she waved her hands.
I raised my head to meet a goddess. Her cerulean blue hair shimmering in an iridescent lustre, and her eyes shining in a golden light held my eyes in place..
The divinity that the voice contained was quite similar to that when Rishell used her TALENT, except that I wasn't being serenaded.
Huh.. I'm dead?
I tilted my head, still staring at the goddess dumbfounded.
She wasn't wearing any gaudy clothes, just one silk cloth draped around her. But that itself was beautiful enough to have me totally charmed. 10/10.
One of her shoulders was exposed, the slit of the cloth exposing a large portion of her thighs. A sight to behold.
And I should really take this shit seriously. What the hell is going on..
"I'm not dead right?" I frowned and tried to stand up. Looks like the pain is gone. My clothing was crazy disheveled though. And my belt.. hah.. luckily I wore a belt. The Liliaths back then probably didn't know how to unbuckle a belt. I would've never imagined that I would be thanking the inventor of the belt for saving my chaisty.
Fixing my clothes, I looked up at the goddess again. I realized she was standing on a wooden stool-- or gold? Ah… no wonder she's so tall-- she wasn't.
"Do you prefer short girls or tall girls creator-sama?" She pointed at herself.
The fuck is with this question?!
"I don't think I really pay that much attention to this detail-- why are you asking me this? And what's up with 'creator'? I'm not dead right?"
I'm pretty sure this isn't a transmigration development right?
She shook her head and showed me a motherly smile. Looks like I'm not dead-- maybe.
"You're alive and the world where your real body resides is currently in a time-stasis state to prevent yourself from being eaten up by Liliath," she clapped her hands.
"Really? Wow. Thanks," I heaved a sigh and sat on the floor. I was going to be eaten up by Liliath huh? So what exactly is going on to the real me now I wonder?
The goddess looked at me in wonder.
I realized I had made a mistake.. I shouldn't have sat back down. I saw something I shouldn't have so I averted my eyes. It seemed she wasn't wearing anything inside.. haha.. ahaha..
"Um.. could you.."
"It's alright creator-sama, my body was made for you in the first place s-so you can look at me without reserve.." She blushed and started fidgeting with her fingers.
Seriously? No!! I'm not planning a harem! I'm one hundred percent devoted to Liliath! Period.
"I-If creator-sama says so.."
Oh.. it's this 'you-can-read-my-mind' cliche huh? FUck. Her disappointed face pricks my heart.
"Yes, I can read your mind, but I have the option to choose not to," she spun her fingers.
Ah.. her expression brightened all of a sudden.. don't tell me it's because I thought of the pain I felt when I saw her disappointment? She's a sadist too? No way..
"Alright, whatever, I need to get straight to the point. Where is this? Who are you? What do you mean when you addressed me as a creator and what's this got to do with the story quest?
"Creator-sama sure seems calm.. on the outside.."
Yeah.. My mind is in a freaking mess.
"First of all, my name is-- none. Creator-sama is to bestow me with a name. Please? Before I move on to the other topics?"
"A name huh?"
Okay.. this sounds weird. Too weird.
Hold up. Let's get this straight. The system mentions a story stage in effect which means this goddess is probably one that governs an isekaI world of sorts.
The goddess noded in response to my thoughts.
So.. this cliche aint' really cliche at all?! I'm in a goddess' domain right now and here I am, and instead of getting sent to another world, I'm about to name the goddess responsible for kidnapping lucky souls?! The hell is up with this?
"I don't think kidnapping is the correct word for that?" the goddess who raised a finger to explain twitched.
"Hm.. I don't know if I should really be the one to name you though.."
"I know how crappy the naming sense of where you grew up is, but it isn't an excuse to dodge your responsibility of creating me."
"Creating you.. ughh.. are you sure I'm the person who created you?"
It's the system isn't it?
"No, it's your TALENT. I was created because of your TALENT. So the creator is still you."
Manifestation into reality-- I manifested a goddess? What kind of logic is that?
"Something like that," she ran her hand through her hair. "So? A name please? It would make your life easier too."
"Y-your.. no.. my TALENT isn't going to force me into a harem r-right?"
I mean.. I had already saved enough points to pull a few gachas.. but I avoided that, absolutely.
"And such is the reason why your TALENT created me," she spun her finger in the air, " It's a counterbalance. Since you're not willing to pick up another girl your TALENT just had to force me onto you.. not that I dislike it," she fidgeted with an 'ehehe' like expression.
Cute.. but it's so fucking wrong!!
"Thank you for the compliment creator!" She saluted.
What the… no.. please.. no harem..
"Could you leave that till some other time and give me a name already? I need to start explaining," she placed her hands on her hips and bent down. Her gorgeous blue hair fell from her shoulders, creating an alluring look.
Was the first thing that came to mind-- since her hair was blue. Yup.
"Bleu it is. From today my name will be Bleu, thank you for the name creator-sama," she smiled brightly. Jumping off the stool she took a seat on the floor just like me with her beautiful legs shifted to the side. It was a really feminine position.
Oh no.. I don't want to take responsibility for this.. it's not every male dream to build a harem you know?
"Yes I know, should I change your clothes?" Bleu pointed at my tattered uniform with blood stains.
Change my clothes.. uh..
"This should be alright.. for now.."
I wouldn't want her to see me naked now would i?
"I want to though," Bleu chuckled.
Ughh.. I think I understand how funny and annoying it is to talk to someone who can read thoughts.
"Then I'll just fix it up a little instead," Bleu whipped up a wind around me and my clothes regenerated into their original form like nothing.
"My pleasure. Now, are you clear on why you're my creator? I feel that you already have a gist of the answer already."
"Sorta. Thanks for the explanation."
"Next would be this place, as you already know, it's my domain and yes, I am responsible for governing an alternate world. To be more specific, governing the gods that governs Liliath's world."
Heck confusing. So she was governing this world without a name all this time huh?
"The world was just created though?" Bleu poked her cheeks.
The world was just created?
"Yes, it was created when the story stage initialized."
"Ther world never existed prior to that event is what I'm trying to say. In a sense, Liliath's memory of her world could be said as nothing but an illusion. But now, it has become reality."
So my TALENT created Liliath with a false history that never existed? And now her false history became reality? So..
"Please, you're not at fault here creator-sama. Just because Liliath had a bad past doesn't mean you were the person responsible for causing it."
"Yeah.. but still."
Ah.. so I'm the reason for Liliath's suffering huh? If she never existed she wouldn't have to go through whatever past she went through. Then again.. not everyone is alright with not existing, I wonder which one is Liliath? If it were me, I didn't really mind either choice. For others however-- due to their background and life experiences, some would prefer not to exist in the first place. But coming into existence wasn't a choice to begin with, it just happened.
"Now you have a gist of the general situation, should I begin showing you snippets of Liliath's past?"
