Masters, you’ve summoned me? Yes, Damon. We have recently received a message from the Gods. Y-You have? The Gods have finally revealed to us the new Chosen Demon. What? This young human, Reya, is who they have chosen. And we have summoned you to- With all the respect, are you kidding me? I am not. Masters, this is..well…this is rediculous. I beg your pardon? A human…as the Chosen Demon? That’s just completely foolish. Why must we trouble ourselves- Fool! Do not question this! Your opinion is meaningless compared to that of God! Calm yourself, Four. Forgive me, Masters. You knew not of the choice. As a result, you were surprised. You are forgiven. But we have an assignment for you. What is it? This human, Reya, she is a teenage human. Meaning that she can be very difficult, and knows little of her responsibilities. *Groan* *laughs* We understand that you have very little patience with ignorant people. Let alone, humans. But this is something we can not simply say no to. This is destiny. No other is fit to be the Chosen Demon. According to the Gods. What is it that I must do to this human? You must go to her world. You must find a way to infect her with your demon blood. That way, the Gods will deliver her unique abilities through the demon blood she receives. Once you’ve done it, bring her back here to this world. And if she doesn’t cooperate? We’re sure you of all people can find a way. I will not fail you. We know. Here we go. *Alarm* *sigh* Man, what a night. MOM: Reya! Are you awake? Yeah, yeah, yeah. *yawn* I’m… *Barking* I’m up! I’m awake! MOM: Well, come on now, you don’t want to miss school. Well, I want to, but I can’t. REYA: I’m singing in the rain! I’m singing in the rain! *Brushing teeth* Bye, mom! Bye, sweetheart! Make sure you try your best! C’mon, Reya. We’re going to miss the bus! Coming! So, did you study for the test? Do you see this? Do you see these bags? I seriously did nothing but studying. *laughs* Ahem. Oh. Hey, Mr.Anderson! Morning. I’m just going around talking to my students about today’s test. Oh. Well, you don’t have to worry! I studied nice and hard. Oh, really? Yep. I stayed up for a while, heheh. I see, alright then, thank you. Have a nice day. Uh, bye. See you in class. Likewise, I’m sure. *School Bell* Must be in there. What? This place is completely empty. Who wrote this?! HC#1: Damon! You must refrain from creating damage to their world! You must leave no trace! You’ve won this battle. *School Bell* Did I set off an alarm? Oh. Guess the humans were hiding. Tsk. Cowardly humans. HC#1: Damon! Now’s the time to search for Reya. Hurry! The humans are only out for so long. Understood. I can’t find her in this crowd. HC#1: I will deliver to you a mental tracker. You will feel great power once she is near. That would be helpful. HC#2: Do you sense anything, Damon? I do, she’s close. HC#1: Try not to make contact with other humans. Trust me, I don’t- HC#3: Damon! Do you feel it? Yes, it’s so powerful! HC#1: She has been chosen by the Gods after all. Yes, thats- Agh Reya, look at that guy over there. What’s wrong with him? I don’t know but don’t make eye-contact. HC#1: Damon, do you see her? I…I.. Yes, masters. I have found her. HC#1: You know what to do. Hm, she’s obviously trying to avoid eye-contact with me. How can I even get her attention without her thinking I’m going to murder her or something? Eh, guess I’ll have to make it up as I go along. Y-yes? I have a request. Oh boy, doesn’t sound so convincing so far. Wha- what is it? I’m just going to have to wing it. Jerk! This is for the best. Trust me. Soon enough you’ll thank me. HC#4: Damon! Why did you not take her? To bring her to our world? She was surrounded. If I took her from a crowd like that after that little stunt, they’d try and stop me. And you told me to not do damage. And if they attacked me, I would have no choice but to do damage. HC#2: He is right, four. We can not afford to have the humans interfere with such an urgent mission. But now that I’ve infected her, what do I do since I don’t have her right now? HC#1: Patience, Damon. You must stay in the human world and follow Reya. HC#1: Wait for the best time to take her to our world Ugh, understood. HC#1: We understand you dislike humans. But please, try and find comfort until you have the chance to bring her here. I’ll try. Ugh. What happened? Reya! You alright? Yeah, I- Ow my head! Try not to move so much! Ah, Reya you’re awake. What happened to me? Well, it seems you’ve collapsed unconscious at your school. Well, that was useful. We’re still unsure of what caused you to collapse in the first place but I ran a few tests earlier and from what I’ve seen you should be fine after a full night’s rest. Thank you, doctor. Man, I hate hospitals. Spending a night here will- Reya? Ugh! No, my test! I missed it! I studied all night for that test! Reya, you need to relax. Okay. There will probably be retakes anyway. I love you, sweetheart. *laughs* I love you too, mom. I’ll see you tomorrow. Okay! Man, I wonder why I passed out back there. Wait a minute, that guy. Who was he? All I remember is he grabbed my hand and…and that’s it. Could he have had something to do with me going unconscious? Hm… Miss Reya? Miss Reya. Hm? It’s time to go, Miss Reya. Your mom’s here to take you home. Hm? Oh, yeah. Okay. *snoring* Just great. *Groan* Just to make things harder and harder. *Groan* I hate staying in hospitals I just wish we could have known what made you pass out like that. How are you right now? Are you feeling okay? Yes, mom. I’m alright I’m just a bit tired since that nurse woke me up so early. Are you sure you don’t need anything? Heheh, yes, mom. I’m sure. No no no no! HC#1: What’s wrong? What happened? I..may have lost her location. HC#4: What?! HC#1: Relocate her as fast as you can, we don’t know when her powers will activate! Don’t worry. I still have that mental tracker. HC#3: Have you felt anything so far? It’s faint, but I think it’ll pick up. HC#1: Please hurry. I am beginning to regret sending Damon to infect her. You lack faith and patience, Four. You must believe that he can do this task. Damon is capable of many things others are not. After all, he is one of us. It has only been one day since we have sent him. Try not to lose faith so soon. Forgive me. With a task so important as this I tend to worry. Remember, brothers. Damon is a strong and smart demon. He will bring her here with no difficulties at all. Given time. I’m getting close. Hopefully I get to her before something happens. *Moan* She should be here. Ugh! Looks like it already started. *panting* Reya! Reya, what’s going on up there? I…I.. Passin’ out again huh? This just isn’t your day. Ugh…what the? Decided to join the living, huh? You?! That’s right. You’re the guy from- Yes. Where am I? You’re in my dimension. The Demon dimension. What? Okay, you’re weird and crazy. I’m just going to get out of here now. I don’t think so. You need to come with me. No! Don’t touch me! I don’t know who you are or where you took me and I don’t care! Just stay away from me. Obviously, you didn’t hear me the first time. You’re coming with me. Period! Who are you? I am Damon. Demon of strength. Wha? Demon of…What? Huh? Hey wait! Uh…what is this place? Ah. You’ve done it! Great job, Damon Thank you, master. Greetings, Reya. Demon chosen by the Gods. Wait….What? Have you not told her of what she is and her destiny? I can’t say that I did. Ah. Well this is awkward. Listen, I don’t know where I am. So if you guys can point the way to my home, that’d be great. No. You see, you are in a dimension of demons, witches, goblins, giants… None of which are in your world. So you see, you are not anywhere near home. *laughs* Okay, you got me. Where are the cameras? What show is this? Wha- Cameras? I don’t understand. You’re not in your world. Okay, this joke is getting old. Since you don’t believe our words. Damon, if you please. Convinced? I-I-but-but you..I..so..I’m a demon? Partially, you are also part human. Which means you are capable of activating your demon abilities at will. For example, now, you’re in your human state. And you can transform randomly to your- I’m a demon?! Yes, let me finish. You will transform randomly to your demon state So you guys infected me? Well, technically, Damon did. At the God’s command of course. What’re you talking about?! Clearly, she needs an explanation of the cycle. Cycle? The cycle of the chosen demon and the dark demon. millions of years ago, two demons were born with incredible power. Normally, demons are born with a specific power such as ice, speed, etcetera etcetera. But these two were born with unique, unimaginable, power. Though they weren’t alike at all. They both had the same amount of power. And they both were very friendly demons. Although, one day, one of them was infected with dark power. Apparently this power has been with him since birth and was activated once he was a young adult. Every bit of goodness that ever existed in his body was erased. He is called the Dark Demon The other powerful demon remained the same. But the Gods knew that they could not allow the dark demon to remain in the world. Or any world, really. So the Gods commanded the other powerful demon to dispose of this monster. Since he was chosen to do this task, we named him the chosen demon. Every time the dark demon or chosen demon die, a new one is born. But 3 years ago, instead of killing the dark demon, we have trapped him and he is well guarded. We did this so the cycle of the dark demon would never continue. What if he dies of starvation or something? Demons are special beings. They don’t die unless killed by something or someone. We needed a new chosen demon just in case something happens that allows the dark demon to escape. Why me? You are the one the Gods chose! You must take this responsibility seriously! But I don’t want to be a demon! i want to just have a normal teenage life! I didn’t ask for any of this, why do I- Enough! Reya! You must be able to accept your fate! The Gods have chosen you specifically! Not to mention, this is the first time they’ve chosen a human! We don’t know why a human was chosen but that’s what happened. Now, you will practice your abilities by training with Damon daily! This may not be something you want, and this may not be normal for you, but this is not something you can simply say no to. This is a very serious job! So whether you like it or not, you are the chosen demon. Well..you ready? For? We’re going back. We’re gonna challenge him again. But this time, we’re gonna win!
