Chapter 21:


My Devil Is A Beautiful Female

After the date Roy had with Sarada, two days went by quickly. Nothing eventful happened. Roy just accompanied Sarada one more time for a 'walk' in these two days.Bookmark here

But now it is time for their departure.Bookmark here

"I guess this is where we part ways, huh" Akiyuki saysBookmark here

"Yeah." Shira repliesBookmark here

"Oh, I forgot." Akiyuki says and turns towards his butler who is standing a little far back.Bookmark here

"Get the payment."Bookmark here

The butler nods his head and goes inside the house. After a few moments, the butler comes out with a brown pouch. By the looks of it, it seems like it is filled to the brim with something.Bookmark here

"Here, Sir." The butler gives the pouch to ShiraBookmark here

As soon as Shira held the pouch he knew what is inside of it.Bookmark here

"Isn't this way too much?" Shira asksBookmark here

"No! It's a gift from me for taking care of my daughter." Akiyuki says with a bright smile.Bookmark here

"I already sent the payment for the mission to the Head Quarter." Akiyuki says to ShiraBookmark here

'Huh? What's he on about?' Shira thinks and looks towards the trio.Bookmark here

[The trio is Mio, Renjii, Roy]Bookmark here

Mio and Renjii point at Roy.Bookmark here

Roy looks at them with a confusing look while tilting his head slightly.Bookmark here

"I will gladly accept this." Shira replies with a smileBookmark here

"Well anyway, we have to go back now. If you have any other missions for us then you know where to find us." Shira then says to AkiyukiBookmark here

"Yes, I will definitely ask for you guys in the future for missions." Akiyuki saysBookmark here

Both of them then shake their hands.Bookmark here

Then Shira and the trio get in the carriage and leave for their base.Bookmark here

-Bookmark here

After two days of traveling without any problem, they are near their base.Bookmark here

"Hmm?" Shira suddenly feels a strong pressure coming from their base.Bookmark here

'Why is he here for?' Shira thinksBookmark here

Soon after, they reach their base.Bookmark here

The trio is surprised as they get off their carriage.Bookmark here

Few guys are standing outside their base. One guy at the front and three people standing a little far back from him.Bookmark here

"Shira! Did you come from a mission just now?" The guy at the front asks.Bookmark here

He is a tall, well-built man with blonde hair styled with a neat part. Hirai has very thin eyebrows as well as small eyes that are usually covered by his signature sunglasses, which don't have arms that wrap around the ears.Bookmark here

His attire consists of a beige vest over a black long-sleeved dress shirt, a red ribbon tied into a bow around the collar, beige pants, and plain brown shoes.Bookmark here

"Ughh…Yuichi…Why are you here?" Shira replies with an irritated voice.Bookmark here

"Is this how you greet your old friend, who you met after two years!" Yuichi replies.Bookmark here

"Haha-You guys are such great friends." One of the people says who is standing behind Yuichi.Bookmark here

"You are also here, Yuuma?!" Shira says with a surprised voiceBookmark here

"Obviously." Yuuma repliesBookmark here

Yuuma is a young man with a fair complexion and short, messy black hair. His eyes, which are closed most of the time, are brown.Bookmark here

His attire consists of a brown Inverness cape that he wears over his shoulders and whose color matches both his hat and his pants. Under that, he wears a dark grey blazer and a white button-up with a light and dark blue striped tie. Under his three-quarter length pants, he wears long white socks that cover the visible part of his legs, and simple black shoes.Bookmark here

"Why are you guys here anyway?" Shira asksBookmark here

"…We are here to…discuss your position I-" Yuichi tries to explain why they are here for but he gets interrupted by Shira.Bookmark here

"Okay, you guys can go now. I have heard enough." Shira saysBookmark here

"Shira, you can't put this matter on hold forever." Yuuma says to ShiraBookmark here

"WHY? Did you forget what they did to me?! What they did to her?" Shira loses his calm.Bookmark here

"Please…don't make me remember…those memories…" Shira says with a brittle voice.Bookmark here

'What happened to him?' The trio thinksBookmark here

"I just came here to give you this message from your father." Yuichi says to ShiraBookmark here

"Oh, so he needs my help now? I don't want to help him, let my father die." Shira saysBookmark here

"He is retiring and he wants you to take his place!" Yuuma saysBookmark here

"Where are his other two sons, huh? Tell him to make any one of them his successor." Shira saysBookmark here

"…"Bookmark here

Yuichi stays silent.Bookmark here

But Yuuma speaks up, "Tatsumi Torizawa died in the raid of an 'A' rank dungeon."Bookmark here

Tatsumi is the second brother of Shira.Bookmark here

"See, this is why I hate my family. One of my brothers died and they didn't think this is an important matter to tell me. What about Lucas? Tell my old man to give him the position or someone stronger like him" Shira saysBookmark here

Masato Torizawa is the youngest brother of LukeBookmark here

"He is just a kid" Yuichi saysBookmark here

"Whatever, you guys can go now. I wanna get some rest." Shira says and walks inside the baseBookmark here

The trio follows Shira and heads inside.Bookmark here
