“If you destroy the Demons’ race, the universe will just cough up something else to keep the numbers of the humans down.”
The battle is a blur of blood and bodies. Time feels slow, but a part of me knows it is speeding by.
I walk closer to the edge of the cliff and turn around so that I am facing my comrades. I salute them, and fall back.
I look at the house where I, like on most days, slaughtered yet again another innocent human being.
Hunters are hell-bent on destroying every single Demon. They don’t know the full extent of our being and none of them have ever tried to find out. They don’t understand that we only kill because we have to.
“Sorry for being blunt, but you only have two choices. You either let me turn you, or I will have to let Marius kill you.”
“What have you done?”
“If I told you, you would think of me as a monster.”
“The Hunters are coming for you and the other demons. Your time is up for you, the age of the demons has ended.” He rasps through the pain.
More fool the human race; they will never be safe now. Unspeakable evil awaits them in the shadows.
The only downside to this life are the Hunters, otherwise known as Demon Slayers.
