Volume 5, Chapter 0: The Prelude for Part 2


As space-time violently rippled, the shattered human soul was sent through the torrent of the dimensions.

It was a storm of emptiness raging in a void that had nothing.

“I” dreamt in that violent whirlpool.


Beautiful, gentle parents… Living as a noble… Smiling towards servants…

Golden hair… Black hair… little friends.

A big castle… a splendid king… a little boy with a defiant face…

A boy with earnest eyes that held a sword……


The sweet smell of overflowing blood…

A dark sky… A dark world…

Thousands of grotesque monsters, all kneeling before me…

Four boys and a girl…

An enormous cat… dark like ink…

Reflected in its eyes……

A golden cat.


I quietly dreamed it all.

A wall that was made to stop “Me”, that had enormous power,

And a great force called out for “Me”.


Someone was calling.

An unknown voice…? No, I know this voice. A boy…? A girl…?

I faintly heard the quiet whine of a “Beast”.

Were you… calling out to me?



“……Ah, you’re awake.”

When I opened my eyes, the white light shone against my eyes. I heard someone’s voice in the background that was still blurry to me.

A young woman…? But for some reason it’s a nostalgic feeling.

My body wouldn’t move. I felt like I was asleep.

“Ah, hold on, don’t get up yet.”

I kept pushing against the lady that was holding my body down, but she pulled me into an embrace and touched her forehead to mine. It’s a little… cold and pleasant.

“Mm… the fever’s gone down. You’ve had a terrible fever and been asleep since yesterday morning. The women were making a terrible commotion. Hey, aren’t you hungry?”


A small voice came out. But it felt a little different. Was it because of fever? It seemed like it’d been a long time since I’d gotten sick…

“Is that so…? Then, shall I peel some fruit for you? You won’t get better if you don’t eat something, you know.”

In my field of vision that gradually widened, I saw a girl smiling at me.

A spirited girl with black hair and eyes… that looked like a junior high school student.

Someone I don’t know…? But, it felt like I knew her.


A nostalgic smile. A bright room that I feel like I’ve seen somewhere.

A flower-patterned wallpaper. Crayon graffiti. A colorful picture book. A stuffed teddy bear.

A large cushion that had faded colors. A small white chair and desk.

At that scene… tears fell unbidden from my eyes even as I was unaware because of that nostalgic feeling.


“What’s wrong?”

The girl’s voice was surprised, and hugged me gently, stroking my head quietly.

A big hand…… No, I’m just small.


“I saw a scary dream… It’s okay…… Yuzu……”


Author’s Notes:

Today I’m going to post about 5 chapters. They’re scheduled for every hour.

The prologue is short, but the next will be about 3000-4000 words.

From the sixth chapter, I’ll post about once every 2 days, but if I have leeway, I’ll post ahead of schedule.


App’s Notes:

To author: Slow your roll, mate. 😛


And so, a new adventure begins! Coincidentally, it begins at the very beginning, but also at the end.


Don’t worry, it’s not an Oz situation, folks.


Piroton’s Notes:

And we begin Season 2! I had to take a break for studies and to rebuild that sweet sweet chapter stockpile since I’m a student and life is suffering

  11. Diggydawg says:

    Iiiinteresting… So she originally went into a coma, her soul disconnected from her body and went to the demon plane and eventually she came back home… I wonder if she will remember her little planar jaunt while in Japan… who am i kidding, she probably will 😀

  13. Nina-chan says:

    Thanks for the chapter, and welcome back

  14. Kiddie says:

    Welcome back!!!

  15. accountmadeforants says:

    Things just got very, very interesting. Any bets on what the great power creating the “wall” she described is? (I guess Earth’s god(s) would be a relatively straightforward answer, but who knows?)

    I really like how this calls back to her “dreams” when the story started, as well. It makes either side unreliable as a real beginning. (Though I suppose the Earth side still wins, since she started with nothing as a Demon, whereas the human side has already matured somewhat and a history.)
