"The red liquid you just gave this woman seems to be much more effective than the divine medicine. May I have that medicine?"
Perhaps because he ran out of the temple barefoot, Higashikawa left the driving for the return trip to Nishikuze, who was riding in the front passenger seat.
But what came out of his mouth was a request for the drugs that I had just used.
It was very typical of Higashikawa to be greedy and say such a thing as soon as he thought he could make money from it.
"If you say you are willing to die, I am willing to give it to you."
"I'm going to die, you say? That's a very strange story. I don't drink the liquid myself. What makes you think I would do that?"
"Hmm, that's true. Well, let's not get your hopes up, so I'll tell you. What I gave her. It's not a drug, it's a substance that turns people into devils."
"What? You're saying you turned her into a devil?"
Of course, I'm not going to tell them everything.
The only reason I was motivated to help Yukari was because of a faint trace of a memory I had inside me. But I decided that it would be better to show them what I had done.
This way, the story that I am the devil will be more plausible.
I don't think that Higashikawa and the others would betray me after all this time, but it is true that they still seem to be somewhat dissatisfied with me. Perhaps, they are not following the truth from the bottom of their hearts.
However, if I can gain their loyalty even a little from this case, I will be satisfied.
Nevertheless, the reason why I did not mention vampires clearly is because I wanted to keep the vampire's desire hidden from the public.
As in the story in this world, it will not happen that a person whose blood is sucked by a vampire turns into a vampire again.
Besides, it is unlikely that a vampire will suck blood without limit if he/she does not intend to kill the victim, but if he/she does, he/she will just die.
However, some vampires could live without sucking blood for more than a year once they got used to the desire to suck blood, so it is not necessarily necessary for their life activities. It is just a physiological urge that can be suppressed by reason.
In any case, I was worried about how the two people in front of me would react if I told them about the vampire.
I thought it was necessary to suppress them by fear to some extent, but excessive fear can have a negative effect, especially in the case of Nishikuze's cowardice. So I decided that it would be wiser to keep quiet.
And cover it up with a lie mixed with some truth.
"Yes. You saw the red string when this woman's legs connected, didn't you? Didn't that look alive to you?"
"Well, it did look like something creepy was moving around. Are you saying that it was a living thing?"
"Strictly speaking, it is not a living thing. But it is true that it has a will like a living thing. I told you that this woman is going to go on a rampage. Because she's no longer human, she's a devil. If you get close to her, you will only be bitten to death."
"That's a hard story to believe. So if you've turned her into such a dangerous creature... what do you intend to do with her?"
"I won't do anything. I think she will be temporarily confused, but I am a higher devil and I can convince her. Well, some newborn devils rarely go out of control, so it will probably not be a problem."
The reason why I have included a few escape clauses is because, to be honest, the effect was not so subtle.
In the other world, I had tried the same thing, but the lesser vampires did not listen to me 100% of the time.
Now, even though I wear the mask of the Marquis Siena Verstadt ze Spencer, the true ancestor of vampires, I am still a fake. The mixing of my own blood with the mask was a result of my various efforts to mislead the lesser vampires to listen to my commands, but even so, I could not fully achieve the desired effect.
However, it is true that I can make them listen to me to some extent as if there is some kind of connection. Though it is not the strong loyalty like a true ancestor get, it is enough to make them listen to me.
"So, you can cover up everything that just happened?"
"I have decided that it would be better for me to do so. Or would you have preferred to let her die?"
"No, that's not true. I know it would have saved us a lot of trouble. Eishin, you should thank him as well. It's your fault for what you did."
"Ah, yeah... I know that. Sienna-sama, I'm really sorry for bothering you."
While we were having such a conversation, we seemed to have arrived at the temple.
The lights of the entrance hall illuminated the darkened premises.
I immediately got out of the car and took Yukari in my arms, who was still lying limp in the back seat and followed Nishikuze who was leading the way as we entered the hall.
The basement is so luxurious that it is hard to believe that this is a basement.
The place was fully equipped with all the necessary facilities for daily life, including a toilet and a bath, not to mention a kitchen and a refrigerator.
According to Higashikawa, the building is also designed to function as an underground shelter in case of emergency, with thick exterior walls and ceilings, and soundproofing.
I have already sent away Higashikawa and Nishikuze from the basement as if they are no longer of any use to me.
After all, they will only be an obstacle to what is about to happen.
Now, when I returned to bed after checking all the facilities, Yukari had just regained consciousness.
"You finally woke up..."
Yukari did not respond to my question as I sat on the edge of the bed.
I don't expect a response from Yukari, either.
I guess she was in a state of confusion.
Yukari seemed to be looking around and trying desperately to understand her current situation.
This is a common symptom of becoming a lesser vampire.
In Yukari's mind now, her memories of the past and the present are jumbled up, and she must be in the process of forming a new personality even in her unconsciousness. In such a confused state, she may not be able to hear my words well. Even if she recognized me properly, it was doubtful.
As I had expected from my past experiments, the effects of becoming servant on a person are inevitably causing changes in some parts of one's personality. However, it does not mean that they lose their memories, rather, they become more violent and the feelings they had for their acquaintances change drastically.
In fact, this change has already begun to appear.
Yukari's mouth emits a beastly roar as she rises from the bed.
The fact that she regained consciousness was proof that she had been successfully transformed into a servant.
However, it is difficult to say that the conversion is 100% successful.
If the person in front of Yukari was the Marquis Siena Verstadt ze Spencer himself, she would not be making such a roar. After all, a lesser vampire who has been transformed into a servant instantly understands who their master is.
Although I knew it, it seems that a fake can't fool them.
And to solve this problem, I mixed my blood, but now her blood-sucking desire is stronger, and Yukari jumped out of bed and attacked me.
Bit... a dull pain hits my neck.
Yukari bites my neck with her sharp teeth like a ferocious animal.
It is not so bad, but it does not hurt too much. Still, I am at Yukari's mercy.
It's no surprise when she becomes a vampire's servant. The first time a lesser vampire learns the desire to suck blood, he or she tends not to be able to keep his or her reason.
Their minds may not be able to keep up with the unknown desire. As if to prove this point, Yukari bit my neck and was sucking blood with all her might.
For a while, I let Yukari do whatever she wanted as we embraced each other.
It would be easy to force Yukari to let go of my neck, but I was going to let her suck blood from the beginning until she was satisfied.
By doing so, it would be easier to make her listen to me.
Well, I guess Yukari is just looking at me as tasty food, regardless of whether or not becoming a servant is involved. Though I still don't know for sure, I'm sure that it works.
In any case, I couldn't let her feed on other people's blood. It is not that she sucks so much blood by any means, but if such a person were to appear, it would be a big public incident. Besides, when I decided to help Yukari, I prepared myself to be the food for her.
As I thought so, I noticed a warm liquid leaking from between Yukari's legs. Perhaps she was so comfortable that she became aroused.
