[A/N: A big win today! Thanks to the support of all the pa trons, I was able to make the original art of Scathach! Go to my pa treon if you ’re interested in seeing it, don ’t worry it ’s free! And don ’t forget that voting for the next art is already underway.]
Clan Astharoth, similar to Clan Amon, also derived its name from that of a demon. This clan was mainly focused on collecting and reselling information. They were not as good as the witches, but for noble vampires who do not want to associate a lot with witches, they were very helpful.
And their prices were far fairer than witches…
Money mattered even to vampires who outgrew the desire to accumulate wealth quickly, considering they have all the time in the world to earn more money. Greedy vampires just didn ’t like having to pay 10x the amount for information that could be obtained cheaper.
Most of these vampires were those who hated witches and didn ’t want to get involved with them.
Currently, similar to Clan Amon… Clan Astharoth had turned into a tundra of ice.
”C-Countess Scathach Scarlett… ” The leader of Clan Astharoth stuttered a lot. He was looking at the woman who was sitting on an ice throne, who had just suddenly arrived and frozen the whole place.
All the vampires thought it was the end of them. After all, they knew Scathach Scarlett, and they knew they invaded her territory.
But instead of killing them all, she created an ice throne, sat herself comfortably atop it, crossed her legs sensually, and rested her head in her hand, just looking at the vampires with her eyes glowing blood red.
”I ’ll give you 10 seconds. ” Her voice sent shivers down all the vampires ’ spines. She didn ’t do anything, she was just sitting there, and it was scaring the hell out of them!
”Tell me who planned this, and I promise that only 50% of you will be killed. ”
’In the end we will still be killed!? ’ Everyone screamed internally.
”We really don ’t know! The ones who contacted us in search of information was Clan Amon! And we just gave them all the information we knew about you, to them! ”
”I see… In the end, you were just used as disposable parts too… ” Scathach raised her hand and with just a hand gesture.
”W-Wait- ” The Leader couldn ’t finish speaking.
After all, he became an ice sculpture… In fact, everything became realistic ice structures. The entirety of Clan Astharoth perished like that, with a simple gesture of the hand.
”Tsk… ” The nagging feeling that Scathach was feeling didn ’t go away, ’I was having a good time with Victor, and something like that pops up to get in my way. These bugs….I ’ll hunt every one of them and… Hmm ? ’
Scathach stopped thinking and looked to the sky. She suddenly rose from her throne and jumped into the air, and with a speed that few could react to, she caught a black owl.
The black owl that was being held by Scathach ’s hands began to thrash wildly.
”I see… ” Scathach ’s eyes gleamed even more dangerously.
”I still don ’t know who you are, but you better hide like the little rat you are… ” A black pressure left Scathach ’s body and spread across the area.
… Death was standing there, and she wasn ’t happy at all.
”Because if I find out who you are, I will erase your existence from this world. ”
Scathach squeezed the owl ’s head, and soon the owl was dissolved by some kind of dark energy.
”P-Prince… ” The man ’s subordinate spoke while he had a dark expression of pure fear.
”E-Everything is fine… ” The man tried to maintain his composure, but he failed miserably; ’How did the killing intent of this monster affect me when I ’m thousands of KM away? ’ He couldn ’t understand such irrationality.
”I said it wasn ’t a good idea. ” Suddenly he heard someone ’s voice.
Niklaus Horseman looked at the two screens showing the image of Scathach and Victor.
”That boy… Wrong, Count Alucard is not a normal existence. ” Nicklaus ’ eyes sparkled as they looked at Victor and the thing that Victor ’s face had become.
He looked at Scathach, ”And that woman isn ’t either. ”
”You don ’t need to tell me the obvious, I saw him personally attacking my father… I just wanted to see how he would react to an enemy attack… And unsurprisingly, he reacted the same way Countess Scathach did. ” Prince Theo wore a sly smile.
”Scathach Scarlett, she is an unpredictable woman… ”
”She is not. ” Niklaus denied it.
”Yes, she ’s- ” Prince Theo was going to tell his thoughts, but he stopped when he heard Niklaus ’ voice.
”You expected that by the time she arrived at Clan Astharoth, the woman would destroy everything without even letting everyone react, right? ”
”… ” Prince Theo was silent.
”Instead of doing what you predicted, she just sat there, and then froze everything… ”
”In the end, she did what I predicted. ” Prince Theo laughed.
”… Fool, don ’t you see? ” Niklaus twitched his brow a little.
”Yes… I know, if it was in the past, she would have reacted like I said. ”
”That ’s true, if this were the past… ” He looked at Theo ’s subordinate. ”Put the first image of the two Counts together. ”
And then the screen image switched to a woman hugging a man on the rooftop very gently.
”That man changed her… ” Niklaus continued.
”… ” Theo was silent.
”Now, I don ’t know if this change is good or bad. ”
”And Count Alucard… ” He looked at the man again.
”He may look predictable at first glance, but he ’s not… Remember, he ’s the same type as that woman… ”
”Irrational. Are you putting that man on the same level as Scathach? ”
”… ” Theo frowned. He didn ’t like that answer, that man on the same level as Scathach? Huh? He ’s only 21! Do not say silly things!
”I ’m not talking about strength, I ’m talking about madness, their mentality is the same… Tell me, just which person in all vampire history dared attack the king in his own castle? ”
”Scathach… And that man… ”
”See? You have your answer… In the future, that man will turn into something far worse than Scathach. ”
”… ” Theo was silent.
Niklaus turned, and before he left, he tapped the prince on the shoulder, ”Congratulations, you ’ve just acquired two Scathach ’s as an enemy. ” Then he walked towards the exit.
”… ” The prince wasn ’t happy about it at all. ”Tsk, just forget it, he can ’t do anything right now anyway, and not even Scathach would dare attack me… ” He was silent.
Suddenly the memory of a woman torturing/training him appeared in his mind…
For a moment, his face darkened a lot when he thought that there would be two existences like that woman.
”Well… ” He looked at Victor with eyes glowing blood red, ”I just have to change my plans. ”
After the incident, Victor was sitting in his room on a couch, and Ruby was lying with her head on his lap.
Sasha was resting against his side, and Violet was leaning over the backrest of the couch.
She was sucking Victor ’s blood.
They were watching television.
”Yesterday, Count Alucard, and Countess Scarlett attacked and completely destroyed… ”
”Wow, they sure are fast… ” Victor spoke as he stroked Ruby ’s red hair.
”Well, you were very flashy… ” Sasha looked at the television and saw the place that was once the domicile of Clan Amon that was left with nothing but small burn marks.
”That is a level of destruction only my mom and I could do. As expected from Darling~! ” Violet stopped sucking Victor ’s blood and spoke.
”You are more amazing. ” Victor praised.
”Hehehe~ ” Violet laughed, then she went back to sucking Victor ’s blood.
”Hmm… Come to think of it now, I ’ve never seen you guys fight properly. ”
”… ” An uncomfortable silence fell in the room.
”Umu? ” Victor looked at his wives.
Ruby sat up a little and said, ”Darling… You won ’t let us fight. ”
”Violet and Ruby and I have improved a lot compared to the past, but… You don ’t let us fight… ”
”…Hmmm. ” Victor put his hand on his chin and started to think:
”But I never forbade you from fighting. ”
”… ” Violet bit Victor ’s neck harder.
”Ouch. ” Victor pretended it hurt.
”Darling, it ’s not that you forbade us from fighting, it ’s that you always jump into battle first and take all the enemies for yourself. ” Ruby lay down on Victor ’s lap again and accepted Victor ’s caresses.
”Oh… ” Victor thought it made sense. Even in the last invasion, he did something like that.
”In that case, the gift that Scathach and I prepared for you could be quite useful… ” Victor flashed a small smile.
”Hmm? ” Violet looked at Victor. She stopped sucking his blood and licked his neck like she didn ’t want to leave a drop.
”My Mother? ” Ruby looked at Victor.
”Yes. ” Victor chuckled as he patted Ruby ’s head.
”… ” Ruby started to think about this supposed gift, and soon she opened her eyes wide, ”Are you talking about those Assassins? ”
”Yes, although they are not on the same level as the king ’s shadows, they are quite strong. So you can use them as punching bags. ”
”… Punching bags, huh? ” Ruby, Sasha, and Violet all exhibited big sadistic smiles. They didn ’t like those Assassins one bit, who dared to try to kill Victor and broke into their house.
”Oh? I like those smiles, hahahaha~. ”
”… ” The three hid their faces.
”Hahahahaha~ ” He laughed even more when he saw his wives ’ slightly red faces.
Although, Violet was having an easier time. After all, she was on Victor ’s back, and she believed he couldn ’t see her behind him… Little did she know that he could see her through the mirror in the bedroom.
”But it ’s a shame you guys can ’t use the punching bags, ” Victor spoke.
”…Oh, today is the day we return, ” Ruby spoke.
”Yes… ” Victor exhibited a gentle little smile, ”I will be able to see my mother again… And my father, of course. ”
”… Why was your father forgotten? ” Violet asked as she stopped drinking Victor ’s blood and licked the area where she ’d bitten.
”Well, that old man, he ’s forgettable, Hahahaha~, but I love my dad so much. ”
”If you love him, don ’t forget! ” The three spoke.
”Hahahaha~, he probably won ’t mind, it ’s just that kind of relationship that we have. ”
”… that ’s weird. ” As the three girls didn ’t have a father very present in their lives for different reasons. They didn ’t understand Victor ’s relationship with his father.
Ruby had her father killed by her mother.
Sasha had a parasitic and useless father.
Violet has a father who was always very sick and always sleeping.
”Hmm, if I tried to explain it in words, my dad and I have the relationship of friends who watch movies, and at the same time, he ’s my dad, and I ’m his son. ”
”Hmm, it ’s like, my dad is my friend, and my dad at the same time, we have a Bros relationship. ”
”…? ” They haven ’t understood yet.
”Just forget it. ” He was bad at explaining too.
”Oh, by the way, who ’s going home with me? ”
”Of course, it will be the three of us, Kaguya, Natalia, and Maria, ” Violet replied.
”Oh… And Yuki? ”
”Well, her contract with you ended… ” Violet continued.
”Oh, that ’s too bad… ” Victor felt that Yuki ’s existence was more like a clumsy little sister than a maid to him. ”Will she return to her house? ” he asked.
”Yes, she will be in Hilda ’s care. ”
”The Chief maid of my Clan. ”
”Oh. ” Victor didn ’t mind too much since he just asked out of curiosity.
”Anyway, we should go. ” When Victor was about to ask Ruby to get up from his lap, Sasha yelled.
”Wait, Darling! You forgot something! ”
”What? ” He looked at Sasha.
”Your appearance! How are you going to explain to your mother all these changes!? You ’re 195 cm tall now, you know? And your eyes are blood red! The puberty excuse won ’t help now! ”
”…Oh. ” Victor, Ruby, and Violet totally forgot about it.
