My Childhood Friend the Demon Knight Hates Me - Episode 35: Forest of the Holy Bell
35 Forest of the Holy Bell
The strange-looking woman who landed in front of me possessed such beauty, as if she was the holder of everything that was beautiful in this world.
Her long, silky, silvery hair glistened in the sun radiating through the rays of the sun.
Her supple limbs and white porcelain skin was enclosed in pure white clothing. It was a loose-fitting dress made of layers of soft fabric with a silver band around the waist. It looked just like my spirit princess outfit.
She had a high nose, peach-coloured lips, and willowy eyebrows that drew a straight line. All of them were arranged in the most balanced way on her small face.
Above all, the large golden eyes that were looking at me were shining so brightly, as if the sun’s rays had been trapped in them, that even my breathing was swallowed up by them for a while.
It was truly a noble beauty filled with the grandeur of nature that no human being could possess.
“— Spirit Princess Suria-Barrett. It was a great dance, and I thank you for it. The impurities that had accumulated in my body have been purged, my strength has returned, and I feel much better now. Your dance was still poor, but it was pure and innocent.”
In a dignified voice, the beautiful —- spirit queen lifted her glossy lips, “I will ask you what you want in return.”
Before I knew it, Mr. Fei, Uur, and the other spirits in animal form were hanging their heads as if bowing down to the queen.
As I regained my consciousness, I touched the cold hand of Reiss lying on the ground and was overwhelmed by the beauty of the queen I saw up close, I scolded my brain that was almost paralyzed and slowly moved my mouth.
“Well, here he is, my guard knight, and he suddenly collapsed … and …!”
“Don’t worry about it. I just bathed him with my chi and forced the demon inside the knight to sleep. He will wake up soon. … So, as I’ve heard, he has been completely assimilated by the demon. Above all, the contract that he was forced to make and the price that he was forced to pay because of his unreasonable grudges against the demon hunter were cruel. Sometimes people think more than the devil.”
The queen bent down with a graceful gesture, and her long white fingertips scooped up Reiss’s black hair in a graceful manner. I didn’t have time to worry about disrespecting her, so I pressed on to the queen.
“Oh, tell me, my queen! What kind of contract did Reiss make with the devil? What is his price …?”
I didn’t care about the formality now.
There was a person in front of me who could finally tell me the answer I was looking for.
Suddenly, the Queen quietly laid her silver eyelashes down.
The queen’s silvery eyelashes fell down quietly.
“The knight himself would not be pleased to reveal it to you. However, I will give priority to your wish to know. This may lead to a faint hope of saving the knight.”
“Save Reiss, …?”
The queen broke off once and said, “Listen carefully.” She opened her eyes and looked at me.
The golden gaze pierced my chest like a bolt of lightning through the sky.
“The demon that lives inside the knight demands your life as the price, —- Suria.”
A sigh-like sound leaked from my mouth before it became a word.
I couldn’t process the meaning of the answer, and my mind was perplexed again.
“What is my life, what is it …”
“When he was a child, he was possessed by a demon messenger before he met you. The contract is as follows.”
The queen left a fragile smile like snow somewhere in her mouth, and exposed the cruel truth to the source of the white light that sewed between the trees.
“Your escort knight, Reiss, said, ‘When you have a person whom you loved the most, kill him with your own hands and dedicate his soul to the devil in your body.’ I have a contract. ”
“Someone you love?”
“Yes. The price of Reiss was ‘The life of his beloved one’ …. Therefore, in order to resist the devil, he denied his feelings, rejected the person he liked, hid his true intentions, spit out false words, and could not let his heart out. If he doesn’t suppress the devil in that way, he will … kill those people who are truly considered important. ”
When she gazed up towards the Queen’s beauty as if she had been flipped, she had a terribly sad expression as she gently stroked Reiss’s cheeks who was lying down with her fingertips.
Her compassionate gesture made the back of my nose twitch.
“Well, wait, wait …!”
I held my forehead and shook my head.
A wave of shock that I could not swallow seemed to flood my chest.
Oh, no, because then.
I held Reiss’s hand tightly as I looked back at his actions thus far.
After reuniting … No, that was long ago. Since that birthday when we separated? No, it wasn’t that time either. Since he was bleeding in the room …?
If it wasn’t good, I wouldn’t mind if my hair was messed up, and I would squeeze my head.
I tried to remember each of them, but I couldn’t get my thoughts around them.
Suddenly, a warm breeze blew, shaking the trees in the forest.
The rich scent of flowers mingled with the breeze, entered my nostrils and sweetly invaded my brain.
I wanted to see Reiss’s face, but I couldn’t turn my head to look at him. But the hands that connected them were as cold as ice, and I felt like crying.
“I’ll show you all of Reiss’s memory, and it’ll be able to answer a number of questions that you wanted to ask me, or the ones that were just born.”
The queen took her fingers off Reiss and gently placed her hand on my head. The bracelet around the queen’s slender wrist, and the small bell attached to it, made a light tinkling sound.
“— Close your eyes, Suria. And immerse yourself in the sea of memory. I want to save this knight, but it’s very difficult with my power, but after knowing everything and if you cooperate, or … ”
The queen’s voice faded away.
When I dropped my eyelids, my consciousness diverged from reality, and little by little, I sank into the sea of Reiss’s memories.
The next chapter would be from Reiss’s point of view. I plan to post them all at once, so it will take a while, but I would appreciate it if you could wait.
