25 Ultimate Queen and Denial
In a room which seemed a bit too large for a normal family, which seemed to have a magic circle of rather large proportions on the floor surrounded by people waiting in order according to their gender on each side dressed in what an average person calls them as Maids and Butlers. There seemed to be a woman of a graceful nature and beauty which is astonishing and impossible for a human which was even more pronounced be the clothing she donned on and with a stern and frosty expression which could put down even a glacier of millennia-old to shame at the centre whom also seemed to be respected by everyone and awaiting her command seemingly waiting for someone or something.
"Just what do think for the Lord commanded Head Mistress herself to come and receive and that too informal clothing contrary to how she doesn't dress up in that manner unless she is on her break?", asked a maid to the one standing to her side in a low voice.
"Who knows just what the Lord was thinking when he suddenly called Mistress and gave this task stressing that this has to be perfecting and all as if there was a time where Head Mistress did something which brought shame to him….?"
"Keep quiet and mind your manners when talking about Lord!", interrupted a gruff male voice which broke them from their conversation and reprimanding them.
""Excuse us Vice Head for our preposterousness"", said those two maids in a low and frightened voice.
As this fiasco was happening, there was response from the magic circle and it started glowing bright red indicating that it was activated and in a flash there seem to be a boy with ivory black hair, fair skin which could put a girl to shame and a bright pair of honey tinted black eyes which when stared into can cause one to trapped into them and donned in what you could call as a regular clothing in a modern earth. Seeing the boy, the waiting people were bit surprised, but they swiftly regained their composure and bowed to the boy standing in the centre.
"Welcome to the Lucifer Castle, young master"
"Well then now there seems to be both dragon power and holy power in my Dantian. I really don't know what to expect when I undergo reincarnation as a devil, so, if anything goes wrong, I am sorry Draig"
FRET NOT PARTNER FOR SINCE WHEN I CAME TO KNOW ABOUT YOU, I HAVE LEFT MY HESITATION BEHIND SINCE IT WOULD ONLY BE A HINDRANCE. AND ALSO, IF SOMETHINGS HAPPEN AND YOU PERISH, I WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY NEXT HOST. I WILL BE COMPLETELY OUT OF HARMS REACH.
"That is rather heartless of you to say. Well, there is nothing else I can do about it. Okay, let's do this".
Thus, making a resolution, Ben injected his qi into the magic circle activated it. His entire being was covered with a blinding red light and for a fraction of second, he felt his entire view of the world getting distorted and when his view came to be normal, he noticed that he was in a room which seemed to a basement in a castle for him as he already had a few contacts with castles when in church so he was that astonished. Then the sight of people came into his view. He swiftly swept his view on all the people present there and settled on a person in the centre who had glistening silver hair and stood in a medieval style blue upper shirt and a long black skirt befitting of a noble lady.
'So, this the Strongest Queen of the underworld, Grafiya Lucifuge. She seems to younger and more beautiful than expected.'
While Ben was seemingly evaluating the person in front of him, he was also likewise being evaluated.
'So this is the person for whom Sirzechs sent to personally receive. From the manner he stressed, I thought there was going to be deity visit from other mythology but to the guest expected to be a boy, interesting. Well, all the answers will be answered in while when that sis-con of a brother comes looking for me for his needs'. Thinking as such, she immediately proceeded to greet the visitor.
When the other maids beside Grafiya heard her greeting, they followed the same.
"Young Master Ben, I am Grafiya Lucifuge, Queen of Sirzechs Lucifer's peerage and Head Maid of the Lucifer and Gremory Castle was asked by Devil King Sirzechs Lucifer to guide you to his study when you come here. If you please", said Grafiya to which Ben responded by nodding his head in response. After that Ben was guided to the study chamber by Grafiya while he was taking in the sights of the Lucifer Castle. They came in front of a door which likely was the entrance to Sirzechs' study. Grafiya politely knocked on the door which was responded by a gentle sound carrying the words of them to come in.
When Ben stepped into the room, he already braced himself to adapt to the pressure released by the Maou which he already experienced himself in the hospital room. But contrary to his beliefs, he didn't feel a bit of suppression which kind of made him stumble into the room. This made the original smiling face of Sirzechs to break into laughter while Grafiya still maintained her cold poker face.
Not minding the embarrassing situation, Ben went ahead and greeted him.
"Greetings Maou Lucifer"
"Don't mind the formalities Ben, rather I would like to ask why were you so convinced that I will exert pressure on you in my territory which I consider it to be the safest not to mention when I also have my queen by my side alongside me?", asked Sirzechs by lifting an eyebrow in a questioning tone.
This made the already composed Ben to redden a bit and once again compose himself.
"Excuse my tardiness and disrespect Maou-Sama, I was just preparing myself to the worst case. But since you have no such idea about me I am relieved", answered Ben a bit tactfully in revenge to the manner he was suppressed in the hospital room.
"You don't have to worry Ben, I have given my word and u value my word a lot. Okay, let's get to the business. I want to reconfirm that you are willingly joining the Devil faction right", asked Sirzechs.
"Yes, Maou-Sama. I am willing to join the devil faction"
"I am going to put you under my sister Rias Gremory, First-in-line to the succession of the Gremory household's peerage when comes to the age and gets her own Evil Pieces. What do you say?"
To that question, Ben closed his asked Draig about it, 'Draig do you think it is possible for me to reincarnate as a servant devil?'
'DO YOU REALLY PLAN TO REINCARNATE AS A SERVANT DEVIL TO A PIPSQUEAK? EVEN IN THE LIGHT NOVEL IN YOUR WORLD VERSION OF ME, I WOULD HAVE DENIED ISSEI IN REINCARNATING AS ONE HAD I AWAKEN BEFORE HE SUFFERED THE CATASTROPHY. HMPH. EVEN IF YOU WANT TO, DID YOU FORGET THAT SHE HAD TO USE ALL HER PAWN PIECES TO ACCOMMODATE MY POWER AND THAT TOO ISSEI WHO NEVER TRAINED HIS BODY AND EVEN HIS GOTINHERENTLY MUTATED. NOW NOT TO MENTION THAT, JUST BASED ON THE QI, LIQUIFIED DRAGON POWER (LDP) AND THE HOLY POWER CONTAINED IN YOU AND YOUR POTENTIAL, SHE WOULD LIKELY NEED TO HAVE NINE MUTATED PAWN PIECES JUST TO ACCOMMODATE YOU IN YOUR PRESENT STATE'.
While Ben was talking to Draig, a few minutes passed by and Grafiya seeing that there was no response from Ben started to frown from displeasure towards the act of displeasure Ben committed by not immediately answering Sirzechs and was about to take action when Ben opened his eyes and said something which brought her to her boiling point.
"I am sorry Maou-same to take such a long time to answer your question but it seems it is not possible for your sister to accommodate me", replied Ben bluntly which elected a frown from the Lucifer and Grafiya seeming unable to control the amount of displeasure to Sirzechs was about attack Ben when the Lucifer pressured everyone in the room to silence.
"You better have a reason boy for not to kill you right now for the act of your preposterousness and don't you dare think there will be that Michael to come and save you in this situation"
