"Of course not!" Shira repliesBookmark here

"My fa- my old man is a General. He wan-" Shira tries to explain the situation but he gets interrupted by the trio.Bookmark here

"A GENERAL?!!"Bookmark here

"SPEAK QUITELY!" Shira growlsBookmark here

"So, I was saying that my old man wants me to take his position as the family head and become a General." Shira explains without getting disturbed this time.Bookmark here

"But didn't you just recently rank up?" Roy asksBookmark here

"Yeah, but my power is very powerful." Shira saysBookmark here

"Come to think of it, I never told you guys about my magic. Did I?" Shira asksBookmark here

"No/Nope/Nah" The trio saysBookmark here

"I have the power to control five elements. People might think this is a blessing…but to me, this is a curse."Bookmark here

"…"Bookmark here

"But you are at least st-Mmphh!" Roy tries to say something but Mio covers his mouth with both of her hands.Bookmark here

"You must be very tired. Take some rest." Mio says to Shira and drags Roy a little far. Mio then releases her hands from Roy's mouth.Bookmark here

"Why did you do that?" Roy asksBookmark here

"I know what you were gonna say that's why." Mio saysBookmark here

"Tch." Roy says and goes towards his roomBookmark here

"Hahh." Mio sighs and goes to her room as well.Bookmark here

Roy jumps on the bed after entering his room. He seems very tired. He doesn't even bother to change his clothes.Bookmark here

After lying on the bed for a few minutes, he falls asleep.Bookmark here

"Really?!! Again?!" Roy shouts after he wakes up in his subconscious space.Bookmark here

But this time the ominous aura is not here anymore.Bookmark here

"It feels a lot less threatening now." Roy talks to himselfBookmark here

"Should I go inside the castle?" Roy starts questioning himself. Roy is only a couple of steps away from the castle.Bookmark here

"Fuck this, let's just head inside." Roy makes his decision and goes inside the giant castle that he is standing in front of.Bookmark here

*Creek*Bookmark here

'It opened so easily although it's huge.' Roy thinksBookmark here

"WELCOME" Roy hears a voice. The voice is cute yet demonic, angelic yet demonic.Bookmark here

After he hears the voice his body completely freezes in place. As if an invisible force is keeping him in the same place.Bookmark here

Roy manages to lift his head up look forward, but he only gets more scared after witnessing what is in front of him.Bookmark here

Roy sees a young woman sitting on a golden throne.Bookmark here

"So, we finally meet…" The young girl says in a seductive voice that can draw in any man.Bookmark here

Roy tries to speak but he can't even move a muscle in his body let alone speak. So, Roy just stands there and keeps staring at the young girl in front of him.Bookmark here

"You are the MAGGOT that unsealed me, huh." The young girl says and disappears from Roy's sight.Bookmark here

'HUH?!'Bookmark here

The young girl then reappears right in front of Roy.Bookmark here

"You have a very handsome face. But-" As the young girl said that she punches Roy in the stomach.Bookmark here

*Bleghh*Bookmark here

Roy coughs a huge amount of blood out of his mouth but he doesn't move a single inch from his position. Or rather he can't!Bookmark here

"RELEASE!" The young girl says and suddenly Roy falls to his knees.Bookmark here

Roy starts breathing heavily. As he tries to look up she kicks him in the face.Bookmark here

This time Roy flies away like a balloon, hitting a wall. His consciousness starts to disappear.Bookmark here

"Is th-" The young starts talking but Roy is trying to keep his consciousness.Bookmark here

But Roy fails and losses his consciousness. The next moment he wakes up screaming in his room.Bookmark here

...…Bookmark here

The downstairs of Roy's base,Bookmark here

Shira, Mio, and Renjii are sitting at the dining table waiting for Roy.Bookmark here

"What is taking him so long, ughh" Mio saysBookmark here

"Maybe he is just tired." Renjii tries to defend himBookmark here

"We ar-" Mio tries to say something but stops when she hears a scream coming from upstairs.Bookmark here

"Was that Roy?!" Renjii says as he gets up from his chair.Bookmark here

"Let's go to his room." Renjii then says.Bookmark here

Mio and Shira follow Renjii and get to Roy's room. As they open his room's door they see Roy sitting with blood covering his bed.Bookmark here

"What happened here?!" Renjii says and runs toward Roy.Bookmark here

"Did someone attack you?" Mio asks with a concerned look.Bookmark here

"N-" Roy tries to deny that no one attacked him but as soon as he opens his mouth, blood comes out of his mouth but he grits his teeth and stops blood from coming out.Bookmark here

"Hey! Are you okay?" Mio and Renjii ask in sync.Bookmark here

Roy nods his head as he can't open his mouth because the blood might spill out from his mouth.Bookmark here

'Why do I suddenly feel so uneasy?' Shira thinks inwardly with sweat running down his forehead.Bookmark here

"It's probably just internal bleeding; I will give you some medicines for that." Shira says to Roy and leaves the roomBookmark here

"I hope he's right…" Renjii says in a soft voiceBookmark here

-Bookmark here

-Bookmark here

A few moments went by,Bookmark here

Shira gave Roy some medicines to stop his bleeding. And luckily it worked!Bookmark here

Now, they are all sitting at the dining table eating their breakfast which is mostly cold.Bookmark here

But they eat it regardless.Bookmark here
