《Vajra Side》

Having left Kyrie, Hakutaku Vajra.

She walks alone in the forest.

She had tried to seek protection from Kyrie and failed.

Yet, she walked on, seemingly unfazed.

It was as if she had anticipated this outcome.

“Come out, I know you’re there.”

As Vajra speaks, a group dressed in black appears from the shadows of the trees.

Among them. . . . . .

A man wearing a black coat adorned with silver accessories appears.

“Thirteen, isn’t it? You’re getting rather persistent.”

The man called Thirteen grins.

“My mission demands it! Hyahha!”

The tattoo XIII is etched on Thirteen’s arm.

“Mission, huh?”

“Yes! Capturing you will earn me praise from Lord Ouma! Hyahha!”

“Ouma. . . . . .I see.”

This ominous-looking man is one of the 13 Apostles targeting Vajra, and he’s the 13th, named Thirteen.

And the one who leads these 13, including Thirteen, is an entity called “Ouma.”

“But wouldn’t it be bad if you killed me for that reason? Ouma-kun might get really upset, right?”

“Don’t worry about that! Ouma-sama allowed it because he’s interested in your eyes.”

Thirteen points to Vajra’s eyes.

Though they are currently hidden behind an eyemask. . . . . .

“Future Prediction. Those eyes should be used for our Demon King.”

Indeed. . . . . .Ouma is one of the Demon Kings.

But unlike the Corpse Demon King or Holy Demon King, Ouma doesn’t claim the title.

A king that transcends all Demon Kings.

The kings of the Demon Kings.

An existence distinct from the other Demon Kings.

That’s why it’s called ‘Ouma’.

“Ouma-sama showed you mercy by offering to include you among the 13 Apostles. And yet, you declined that proposal. Ouma-sama went through all the trouble. . . . . .all the trouble. . . . . .to care about you, and yet youuuuuuuuuuuuu!”

A massive amount of magical energy erupts from Thirteen’s body.

Vajra had foreseen this.

Her skill allows her to know the future.

But it isn’t omnipotent.

Just because you know the future doesn’t mean you can avoid it.

Merely knowing isn’t enough to change the future.

The power to change is required.

That’s why she sought Kyrie’s help.

“Now, if you kneel down and apologize, I’ll forgive you. Kneel, Vajra. Then I’ll let go of the fact that you rejected Ouma-sama’s proposal.”

Thirteen means to say.

Choose, obedience or death.

“. . . . . .”

If she obeys, she’ll be worked to death and eventually have her eyes gouged out.

Either way, in the future she sees, she’s dead.

So. . . . . .

She decides to gamble on a less likely future.

Vajra pulls a talisman from her cleavage.

Seeing this, Thirteen grins.

“Great. . . . . .I was actually in the mood for a fight too. I’ll play with you for a little while.”

Ouma’s subordinate, Thirteen, and the former subordinate of the Holy Demon King, Vajra.

The subordinates of two Demon Kings clash.
