The Demonic Aka Manto


「Aka Manto, what happened to you?Bookmark here

「Jorugumo?Wh-」Bookmark here

*slap*Did she just slap me...? Bookmark here

Why?Bookmark here

Her eyes are full of tears... Bookmark here

What did I do? She grabs me, she's breathing but it's as if her hands were colder than ice. Now that I get a closer look her skin is whiter than snow. Who is she?Bookmark here

「WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU!?」Bookmark here

「I-I'm sorry but, what are you talking abo-」Bookmark here

「DON'T GIVE ME THAT CRAP! I SEARCHED FOR YOU SO LONG AND YOU JUST VANISHED WITHOUT TELLING ME! THE HELL WERE YOU!?」Bookmark here

「Jorugumo」Bookmark here

「TELL ME! DON'T PLAY DUMB AND JUST TELL ME!」Bookmark here

「I...honestly don't remember anything...sorry」I hear a door slam open and out comes a lustrous woman with a demonic lookBookmark here

「 Hahaha well if it isn't the once great demon of the underworld Aka Manto!」Bookmark here

「You know who I am?」Bookmark here

「Who doesn't? You defeated great demons such as Behemoth, Satan, Lucifer and even some angels!」Bookmark here

「I don't recall anything of the sort.」Bookmark here

「 Impossible! Did you actually find a way to seal your memories?」Bookmark here

「 Huh? 」Bookmark here

I seriously hope all this is a dream. Hell. Heaven. Memory Concealment. Angels. Demons. Man, I must've turned into a crazed maniac. Though might as well play along.Bookmark here

「You said I beat great demonic figures right?」Bookmark here

「 Yes, it's true」Bookmark here

「Then how did I do it?」Bookmark here

「 You have a great number of fighting capabilities, you have the power to become The Devil」Bookmark here

「So fight me! Let's see how strong I am right now.」Bookmark here

「 Are you willing to give me such an honour?」Bookmark here

「Let's do it!」Bookmark here

 She charges at me, but this is my dream so I quickly intercept her attack and- huh HAAAAAA!? She quickly takes me down and whooped my ass.Bookmark here

「How the hell...」Bookmark here

「Are you so weak Manto-sama?」Bookmark here

「THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO KNOW! Didn't you say I beat some great demons or something?! Are you sure you're not mistaking me for another guy or something?」Bookmark here

「Hmmm..here eat this!」Bookmark here

「Sweets? Sure!」Bookmark here

 It was at that moment I realized that these weren't regular sweets. I felt a gigantic tingling sensation deep in my body. It's as if there was something inside my body and it's trying to come out. It hurts... It hurts like hell... Why does everything in this world hurt?!Bookmark here

「You... These aren't sweets are they!?」Bookmark here

「I never said they were sweets, I just told you to eat them which you did. You didn't have to eat them if you didn't want to, you know.」Bookmark here

「 What did you do to me?」Bookmark here

「 I'm simply trying to release your hidden powers. It seems when you sealed your memories you did the same with your powers so in your current state you're weaker than even a goblin. Which is pretty pathetic considering even a human can kill a goblin.」Bookmark here

「 Are you saying that I'm weaker than even the average human?」Bookmark here

「Yes, that's correct.」Bookmark here

「 How the hell am I supposed to fight all these demons then if I can't even beat a goblin?」Bookmark here

「May I use this on you?」 Bookmark here

In her hand was a sword. Made of obsidian. It had a strong dark demonic aura in it, I would normally refuse an offer like this. However, she can probably beat me up in an instant in my current state. I should probably comply if I want any chance of getting out of this alive. After all I am in Hell. Man, I should have never read that stupid book about demons.I wonder why my previous self-sealed both his memories and powers though, it's rather inconvenient. Thanks a lot, stupid Aka Manto!Bookmark here

「Even if you ask that, I don't think I even have enough power to stop you.」Bookmark here

「Haha, good, good, you're learning!」Bookmark here

「Yeesh, you could've been more subtle about it you sadistic demon.」Bookmark here

「What did you say?」Bookmark here

「Nothing! Nothing at all!」Bookmark here

「That's what I thought! Hee hee~」Bookmark here

「Stupid Demon...」Bookmark here

「Hahaha...haha.ha... I HEARD THAT YOU BRAT!!」Bookmark here

「Oh no...」Bookmark here

 I knew I messed up when crimson flames decided to emanate from her hands. Her terrifying angry expression explains it all. Eyes full of bloodlust. Eyes that have seen death. These were the eyes of a killer, a murderer, a... demon... She truly was a demon. I shouldn't have taken her so lightly. She then proceeded towards me. Charging at me. Rampaging at meBookmark here

. 「STOP IT!」 Bookmark here

 What...why? Why did she...?
