The same day Ben's father reported the matter of his son being The Red Dragon Emperor of this generation to church. Immediately he got an order stating that he had to send his son to the Vatican so that they take care and make sure that is properly trained in using sacred gear and also make him a high level member of Church as an exorcist after going through a period of training. Then knowing the matter, Ben had one major headache to deal with. Due to him being the only friend of Akeno she got very attached to him during these two years such that she would not even spare him of torture if he doesn't inform her early that he is not able to make it to the playground the same day or if else has any other reasons. Thus also awakening the tendencies of her being a sadist. There were some painful times where Ben had to endure the sadistic torture of Akeno. Now he have to convince the said sadist queen that he had to go to another place entirely and he was also actually feeling a little pitiful for the girl, since he knew how her childhood will be after he left but there was no other way because he had to protect himself and the people closer to his heart including her in the future. He had to go through all this training. He had a choice of laying low but that was not possible because if he had to take a break in between then naturally there will be consequences in the cultivation. So he cannot take his chances. The next day Ben made it to Akeni and told her about him going to Vatican. She started crying immediately and demanded to take her with him but that is not possible and they will immediately know that he was of freed fallen angel just like with a glance. So he had to convince her and also he had to endure the torture she put him through but finally she got convinced but was also hurt that her only friend was leaving her. So after that time Ben couldn't contact her. Even when he went to her house, she refused to see him once again. He told her her parents about his situation that he had to go to Vatican since his parents being devote followers of Church and they got the opportunity to stay there for a period of time so he had to go there. Barquiel was a doubtful look in his eyes, but he let it go. A week later he reached Vatican along with his father and mother where they would be stay for a period of time. Though there was not much of description regarding Vatican in the light novel and anime show, when Ben saw it with his own eyes he was fascinated by all the history and beauty of the town. There were buildings all over the place and it is beautifully constructed according to the Christian standards. It was no where looking how he was expecting to look like a dull old buildings and actually enjoyed the sceneries of Vatican. They finally made it to the main church in the Vatican where the pope resides and his father left them for a while in the launge where he met with some person and talked with them for a while. Later came back to his son and wife and told them to follow him immediately.
"So the underground facility is headquarters of exorcist. I didn't know. I thought it would be somewhere in a different rundown building from the outside and expensive and posh looking inside. But this also make sense that headquarters under the main church in Vatican. So dad whom are we going to visit now?"
"We are going to the Palladin who will decide where to place you and whom to put you under. But first when he will ask you to show him the sacred gear, do not fear of nothing and show him. Since your parent being me I a mid class exorcist, they will not treat you poorly and this is a rumour but it seems like there is a project undergoing where they are researching about creating a technique using which they can mass produced Holy sword weilders. Since I am not a high level personnel officer, I don't know the exact situation but it seems true. It also seems that whomever the Church thinks has potential of weilding a holy sword will the first test for the compatibility of them with the holy sword and train in the direction. I think they will also test you in that category and if not don't worry they will at least train you in the ways of using your secret gear".
'I hope they do test me regarding the potential of welding a Holy sword and it would be the best if I am compatible with Ascelon and I do think it is possible because Issei who has was devil is also compatible with Ascelon'.
PARTNER, I DON'T UNDERSTAND ONE THING. YOU BEEN GOING TO CHURCH AND ALL THAT IS YOUR DECISION, BUT THERE IS A DOUBT IN ME. WHY DO YOU WANT TO WIELD ASCELON WHEN YOU HAVE ME AS SACRED GEAR AND THEN ALSO YOU KNOW ALSO THE POTENTIAL YOU COULD POSSIBLY GAIN THROUGH DEVELOPING YOUR COMPATIBILITY WITH SACRED GEAR AND ALSO ITS ADVANTAGES. WELDING ASCELON WILL JUST GIVE YOU THE HOLY SWORD AND DRAGON SLAYING EFFECT WHICH DOESN'T ADD UP BECAUSE, IT DOESN'T MATTER! ONCE YOU HAVE MASTERED THE LONGINUS, THERE WOULD BE NO DRAGONS, ANGELS, DEVILS AND FALLEN ANGELS. THEY WOULD BE SHOT DEAD BY YOU IN AN INSTANT AND WHO WOULD NOT FEAR YOU! WHY WOULD YOU NEED ASCELON?
"Because it's cool".
WHAT! YOU WANT TO WIELD ASCELON BECAUSE AT COOL? OH GOODNESS GRACIOUS WHERE AM I GOING TO END UP WITH THIS FOOL BEING MY MASTER FOR THIS GENERATION?
Saying that Draig let out a tired sigh and not choose to talk with Ben for a while. Meanwhile Ben met with the Palladin and completing the formalities he was sent to a portion of exorcist headquarters where they would be checking out the holy power compatibility and also the holy sword compatibility.
