The First Reaper

The New House

ecies can even sire children. ” Adam began using his Big Brother voice which had been used in many similar situations before.

As Charon listened, he found the first sentence Adam said so true that even his instinct cut down his anger inside him and that he should listen to his brother. Taking a few deep breaths, even though Charon was almost certain he no longer needed air, he managed to calm down before sitting back into his chair and the white energy which had crackled along his arms and face was dispersed. Adam sighed in relief, for one he felt actual life threatening danger albeit briefly, from this brother of his who had yet to catch up to him in strength.

”Sorry, I tend to lose myself when it comes to research. ” Charon looked away from Adam like a child who was about to be scolded.

”Brother, you can be honest about the real reason why. Its okay to be worried about the future, hell I know I am. You just need to not lock yourself away so much, you tend to forget how to talk to people when you do. ” Adam shook his head at his brother before continuing, ”What I was thinking was you could go to the orphanage in the capital, meet some kids and decide a possible heir to adopt. You could even adopt one of them right then and there if you feel so inclined. With you being able to turn people into your race, it may as well be the same as making them your children anyways. Of course with how painful it is you ought to wait until they are old enough to handle the pain before performing the ritual. ”

”Yes,I suppose you are correct as usual Adam. If I am to be the new King then I must work on my antisocial behaviour. I guess a good start would be to visit the orphanage and just see if any of the children could make a good heir, and a good research partner. ” Charon whispered the last part under his breath before getting up and leaving the room.

Adam could only shake his head before pulling out a golden bell from his desk. He picked up the bell and infused some of his Mana into it before ringing the bell once. As the bell rung out, a shadow could be seen coagulating in front of his desk as an old butler rose from the shadow. The Butler gave Adam a bow before looking him right in the eye.

”So I assume Charon just finished his report about the forest? ” The butler asked as Adams eyes grew in surprise before he let out a chuckle.

”Yes, I assume then that you already informed the other Kings? ” Adam inquired as he looked at this mysteriously loyal butler, almost as if some secret about him would appear if he stared hard enough.

”Yes sir. I also intend to help Hades with his investigation from the background when able. ” The Butler grinned as he thought about the young ex-freelancer and his potential to be almost as excellent as a butler as The Butler himself.

”Good, I want you to keep me and the others updated as this continues on. Also, try to find any research books on souls that Charon hasn already found and send it to him while introducing yourself to him. He will be your new master soon anyways. ” Adam added on before pulling out more paperwork and seemed to almost cry.

The Butler chuckled at Adams hatred of paperwork before sinking into his shadow, ”As you wish, my lord. ”

As the cogs of ate continued to turn, in a room somewhere in the capital was four people spread around a table with various herbs on top of it. One of the people gathered was actually one of the
ewbies which Hades had been training before leaving to talk with Charon. The other three were glancing back and forth from a report in their hands to the
ewbie. One of the three was dressed in typical nobility wear, with a pin on it that is especially common amongst nobility of the Atlea Kingdom Nobility. Another is wearing monocles along with the scholarly garb that is common amongst government officials of the Dregh Empire. The last one is a older man with scars across his face and a weapon tied to his waist with a red band tied around his arm, A fashion choice that is quite common for veteran freelancers.

”So lad, you are following the job exactly yes? ” Asked The Man who seemed to be a veteran freelancer.
