《The Legend of the Fox Demon》[The Legend of the Fox Demon] - Military Academy
What is humanity? Does everything have it, or is it exclusive to sentient beings on the level of humans? Or is it exclusive to humans and only humans? What about demons and angels?
The deceptive angel falsely makes humans believe they are holy beings sent to vanquish all evil. Sent into this world out of spite, they
e just as bad as the demons they so vehemently hate.
What about the demons? So monstrous even their creator barely recognizes them anymore. Once created out of a curiosity and want for children. But now seemingly bent on destroying the angels, no matter what gets in the way.
Lets not forget humans, their greed knowing no bounds. They kill the planet they live on and then decide to kill each other in senseless wars. They mess with boundaries set by the gods themselves and expect no reprimands. If all three of these races are just as bad as each other, surely, they all have humanity.
Its probably just rotten to the core.
One years later.
Seemingly at the age of eighteen, a young man stood calmly in front of a glass door. He felt a firm hand on his shoulder. Looking over he saw a very tall and tired man with a weak, yet warm smile. The young man, Leonardo, just laughed through his nose while shaking his head. He entered the building inside of a building.
A year had passed, and he was still as pale as ever, which was extremely. One might even confuse him as a ghost if they saw him late at night. Leo still dyed his hair black, and he had grown considerably and was now six feet and two inches tall. He was wearing a normal hoodie with some jeans.
He was currently in a skyscraper dubbed the Tower, inside were many departments for a single organization. The Abyss was the government network for demons near and far. Currently, the young man was entering a café inside the Tower.
It was a place where the people in the Tower could relax and get a bite to eat. The aroma inside the café proved the skill of the people making the food and drinks. Currently, Leo was just here to wait.
The café was built like an entirely different building, rather than like the skyscraper it resides in. Instead of looking like a dull skyscraper, it was built primarily of stained wood, and it had a homey feeling.
Upon entering, a little old lady without care about her appearance stood before him. She wore a loose shirt and a pair of sweatpants; the shirt had a slight stain on it near her hip. Her hair was fiercely pulled into a bun making the young man wonder how her hair hadn fallen out yet.
”Welcome to my diner, you
e a little young so I assume you
e here to wait like the others. Order somethin and Ill make it quick. You still gotta pay of course. ”
The young man smiled and politely decline her offer for food, he didn have much money on him. He left and went to find a seat which he found in the corner of the café.
It was a booth in a dark corner. Most of the seats either had light from the windows or the bright bulbs on the ceiling. But this corner had a dim bulb and no window, resulting in it being slightly ominous. The booths leather was also very worn and needed to be replaced soon.
Leo sat down with a smile and took out a book, he flipped through it a bit before settling on a page and he started reading. It wasn soon before he was engrossed by the tale the book contained. The various sounds of the outside world were quickly drowned out.
Eventually, someone tapped on the top of his book, snapping him out of his stupor.
Across from him sat another person, he looked very timid and had a small frame. Leo looked at them with slightly surprised eyes as he hadn even heard them sit down.
”I pretty sure they
e here to pick us up. ” They said with a faint smile, pointing towards the cafés entrance.
Looking towards the door revealed an ominous character. A tall figure in a black-on-black suit, which held a tiny golden pin in the lapel, was standing perfectly upright. She had a gun holster that went around her shoulders, fitting two handguns, and two more holsters on their hips fitting two more handguns. She wore an animal mask on her face, covering up her features. It was a bunny mask that looked ordinary in every way but still managed to be unnerving.
In the middle of the mask, there was an almost invisible line that separated the top of the head from the bottom. It seems like they could split apart for some reason. The bunny itself was made of wood and was attached to a flat mask that lay underneath. Why the mask was so complex Leo couldn understand.
Tucked under her armpit was a clipboard that carried some papers. She took it out and glanced at it. After a moment she looked up from the clipboard and looked around. Then her eyes went back to the board, and she flipped the page. The cycle repeated twice more before she tucked the clipboard away once more.
She looked up and spoke,
”All of the recruits, follow me. Wander off to snoop and bad things will happen. If you get lost, stay where you are, and well come to pick you up. If you do get lost, you
e just going to get kicked out, so pay attention. ” After saying their piece, she turned around and started walking away.
A few of the regular patrons of the café saw her and snickered at the recruits.
Everyone else, Leo included, quickly got up and followed after her. They were led through the complex building, navigating in and out of different hallways, walking up some stairs and down some others. It seemed like the place was built to be a labyrinth but eventually they started to come to a stop.
All of the various workers from before wore regular attire, different from the masked individual guiding them. But now there was another in the same black-on-black suit with another animal
