Chapter 12:

Like Magic (3)

My Demon Queen


Oh. WHAT. The list is just plain confusing. Didn’t it say max quest for each category equals one? And looks like some of them have disappeared.. but I have 50 points now. Bookmark here

Gaining affection.. let’s ignore that. For Introductions, I now have to learn about her favorite food. The quest for gaining trust is still the same but the ‘have her complete one command’ disappeared. I’m guessing it changed to points since I’ve already completed it?Bookmark here

So the quests will remain until it is completed— unless I decide to trash it. There’s a triple dot underneath each section button, I’m thinking it has something to do with that.Bookmark here

“Liliath, what's your favorite food?”Bookmark here

“Favorite food?” She turned her head to look at me. Yup, she must me soo confused. “Is it one of the quests?”Bookmark here

Or not.. darn this lady is S-harp.Bookmark here

“Yeah, learning about your favorite food, the reward if 20 points.” I came to sit next to her and showed her the quest board. I mean... she has already seen the worst of it so..Bookmark here

Can’t say much about the kissing one though... is this gacha TALENT of mine an otherworld dating app of something?Bookmark here

“I have no idea,” Liliath said, narrowing her eyes.Bookmark here

“No idea— what do you mean?”Bookmark here

“I don’t have a favorite food,” She tilted her head saying that as her eyes looked into mine, her ponytail swayed... oh so cute gosh gah!?Bookmark here

“M-maybe you still haven’t found one?” Calm down, calm down. I know I’m all flustered by the fact that she’s keeping a straight face so cute even after looking at the embarrassing requests from the quest board. “You know, I’m thinking we should find a way to complete these quests together so we can wrack up points faster... of course I won’t try to force you to do the ones that you don’t like like the first one so..”Bookmark here

“I understand,” she bit her lips and nodded.Bookmark here

I’ll cancel the kissing quest off the list then.. but it’s worth 200 points though.. darn. Thinking about it just makes me want to steal lips... not good. Not good.Bookmark here

Then I felt something warm.Bookmark here

Huh?Bookmark here

“T-the quest.. the third one, right?” She spoke flustered. Her hand tightened around mine.Bookmark here

“Y-yeah?” my voice sounded like jelly.Bookmark here

She pulled her hands away and then we checked the phone together but..Bookmark here

Nothing had changed.Bookmark here

No. It says ‘hold Liliath’s hands’. So I’m supposed to be the one to take the initiative?Bookmark here

“Liliath. What if I’m the one w-who need to hold your hand, not the other way around.. do you mind?”Bookmark here

“For the sake of the points.. I don’t mind,” she whispered.Bookmark here

My heart stared racing for fuck sake. No. Heck, why is this my TALENT?? Like honestly W-H-Y? Why would there be such a system? This is crazy!!Bookmark here

My hands crawled over and I placed it on top of her hand. Her skin was delicate and smooth, like silk. I gulped. Bookmark here

Sitting on the floor side by side, we didn’t make eye contact— both of us merely staring at the table. On the floor, our hands stuck to each other.Bookmark here

I moved my hands underneath hers and gripped it tightly, her small gentle hand.Bookmark here

It was like that for a while, a while that felt like forever. I didn’t know what to think. Bookmark here

It wasn't long before I heard my phone buzz.Bookmark here

Huh.. I forgot to turn off silent mode.Bookmark here

Oh.. so I need to complete quests to increase the max number of quests. That’s a good thing. More quests equals more options. More options equals more points equals reducing the necessity to do awkward quests.Bookmark here

“Ooooooo. What’cya two doing?”Bookmark here

“Hiiih?!”Bookmark here

I pulled my hand away.Bookmark here

That shriek’s source was me. Liliath sat there unmoving.Bookmark here

I glared at the little devil peeking over the couch. A shit eating grin stretched across her face. God damn you..Bookmark here

“Youu two are so lovey dovey.. it’s so cute you know?” The little devil chuckled.Bookmark here

“Shut up.. It’s for the sake of increasing points.”Bookmark here

“Ah? So that’s why you don’t want me to see the quests yesterday right? RIGHT?” Her smile was akin to one made by a demon. “I bet there has to be something really inappropriate in there that requires you two to go jumping on bed.”Bookmark here

“THAT’S IT, I’M GOING TO KILL YOU!!”Bookmark here

I imagined myself saying that when in reality— I was glaring daggers at her.Bookmark here

Her prideful grin ended with a snicker. She turned around and left to who knows where... I hope she doesn’t tell mom about this.. I think that’s a hopeless wish.Bookmark here

That’s exactly why she’s the devil— she may look CUTE and INNOCENT on the outside.. inside however.. she’s totally corrupted by ‘doujinshis’ and inappropriate content. Is there a need to remind you that she's only freaking 12 years old?! Though it’s pretty normal cuz as I’ve said... It runs in the family.Bookmark here

I turned around to see Liliath crawled up into a ball.Bookmark here

Sigh~Bookmark here

My thoughts wandered to the sensation of her hands... I want to hold them forever and not let go if possible. It just has that sort of allure to it..Bookmark here

WHAT IN THE HELL AM I THINKING?! SSHHHYYYYTTT!!Bookmark here
