Arriving at Violet ’s mansion, Ruby ’s car pulled into the garage.
Luna got out of the car, opened the door for Ruby, and, just as Ruby got out of the car, Luna stood in front of Ruby protectively.
”Lady Ruby Scarlett, ” A vampire who was Violet ’s servant, spoke in a neutral, respectful tone.
”Luna, what are you doing? ” Ruby asked.
”Sorry, I acted unconsciously, ” Luna smiled apologetically.
”Hmm, ” Ruby looked at Luna and thought; maybe she ’s thinking about that incident still?
A Maid who failed to protect her master must have affected Luna ’s mind in some way.
Deciding that she must solve this problem in the future, Ruby looks at the man, ”Where are the prisoners? ”
”Follow me, ” The man spoke as he started walking.
Ruby followed the man as she was accompanied by Luna, who walked behind her in silence and eyed the man cautiously. The two women followed the man into a dark basement that was lit only by torches.
”The prisoners are in this room, ” The man spoke as he pointed to a door, and then he disappeared.
”He ’s still around, ” Luna warned in a low voice.
”I know, ” Ruby said.
Ruby wasn ’t too worried, these vampires were Violet ’s servants, and they didn ’t have the balls to do her any harm. Unlike some hunters who underestimate Scathach ’s strength and madness, vampires knew all too well how crazy that woman could be.
And Ruby wasn ’t weak either, she was trained by her mother, and there ’s a massive difference between a hunter with the rank of a general and those vampires who are only good for cannon fodder.
Ruby walks through the door, and the first thing she sees is Jimmy and Thomas, two budding hunters who were captured by Violet and Victor; they were playing cards in a very relaxed way.
She looks around and realizes that there is a lot of food lying around. ’They are feeding the pigs, ’ She thought.
”Mister Vampire? Did you bring more food? Thank you so much, you can let- ” Jimmy spoke, but he stopped talking as he looked toward the door.
”Hmm? Who are you? ” Thomas asked as he turned away.
”Idiot! ” Jimmy hit Thomas on the head.
”Ouch! Stop hitting my head, Dick-head! ” Thomas yelled angrily.
Jimmy ignores Thomas and says, ”Long red hair, and accompanied by a white-haired maid, and they ’re both vampires, how come you don ’t know them!? ”
”…? ” Thomas looked at Jimmy, confused.
”…I know what I know, and I don ’t know what I don ’t know. ” He snorted.
”…. ” Jimmy was speechless.
Jimmy sighed and ignored Thomas completely.
He gives Ruby a fake smile and says, ”Lady Ruby Scarlett, daughter of the most powerful female vampire in the world, Countess Scathach Scarlett, what do I owe your visit to this humble place? ”
”!!! ” Hearing what Jimmy said, Thomas opened his eyes in shock, and then he eyed Ruby warily.
”Hmm, ” Ruby puts her hand to her chin like she ’s thinking about what to do. For her, these hunters weren ’t even worth her time. She ’s just here in front of these hunters because she wants to sort out the loose ends that her husband and her friend left in this town, she could clearly see that they were novice hunters; they wouldn ’t give her a lot of useful information.
”… ” Seeing Ruby in silence and looking at them coldly.
Jimmy and Thomas broke out in a cold sweat; somehow, they could deduce they were in danger.
Ruby kept thinking until an idea popped into her head, she flashed a cold little smile.
Looking at the cold smile on Ruby ’s face, the two budding hunters knew they were fucked…
”Luna, bring me the magic contracts; Violet must have some in her personal room. ”
”But you ’re going to be alone-… ” She wanted to protest, but she stopped talking when she saw Ruby ’s cold eyes:
”Do as I say. ”
”Yes, Lady Ruby, ” Luna bows in respect, then she turns and walks towards the exit.
Seeing Luna leaving the room, Ruby sighed inwardly, she changed her mind when she saw Luna ’s reaction. She thought to herself that she should solve this little problem as soon as possible, she didn ’t want an incompetent maid. Ruby faithfully follows the teachings of her mother and remembers what Scathach once said in the past:
’Ruby, if you ever make a mistake, don ’t take it to heart, try to learn from the mistake, and more importantly, try not to make that mistake in the future. ’
Ruby agreed with her mother ’s thoughts; repeating the same mistakes over and over again was just insanity.
Ruby stops thinking about it, then she looks at the hunters with her cold, indifferent eyes, ”First, clean up this mess, are you pigs? ”
”Yes, mam! ” Jimmy responded vigorously, and soon he got up and pulled Thomas:
”Help me, you idiot! ”
”I-… ” Thomas was going to say something, but when he saw Jimmy ’s eyes like he was telling him not to say anything, he closed his mouth.
Soon the two hunters began to organize the room. Not wanting to sit in a spot these two men have already sat in, Ruby creates an ice throne, and sits on it, crosses her legs, and waits patiently for her Maid to return.
A few minutes later, Luna returned with three golden papers in her hand; these were magical contracts made by the witches.
She handed the papers to Ruby and waited patiently beside her. Ruby took the papers, ”Three, huh? ”
”I didn ’t find any more magic contracts; I think Lady Violet only had these. ”
”Unexpected. I thought she would have more. After all, she has frequent contact with that Witch, ” Ruby commented, then she continued: ”Well, three is enough ”
She stands up, bites her finger, and a drop of blood falls on a paper, the paper starts to glow slightly, and then Ruby starts speaking in Latin:
”Primo clausula: Proditione et mortem. ” Translation: First clause. Betrayal and death.
When Ruby spoke these words, the gold paper began to float, and letters began to be written on the paper.
Listening to what Ruby said, Jimmy, who had already tidied up the whole room along with Thomas, said:
”Fuck…we ’re fucked. ” His face darkened.
”Huh? Why are we fucked? ”
”… ” Jimmy looked at Thomas with a tired face.
”Sometimes, I ’m envious of your simplicity… ” He sighed
”…? ” Thomas didn ’t understand.
Jimmy wasn ’t in the mood to explain, and he just looked at Ruby with a tired face. He seemed to have given up on trying to resist; he was already in the vampires ’ lair. What could two mere budding hunters do?
Ruby flashed a cold little smile:
”Secundi clausula: Magister et secreto.. ” Translation: Second clause: Master and confidentiality.
”…Great…Just Great… ” Jimmy already understood where this was going; sometimes, being a smart guy is a curse.
”Tertium clausula: Exploratorem. ” Translation: Third clause: Spy
The gold paper has stopped glowing gold; Ruby raises her hand and takes the paper, then she looks at Thomas:
”The contract is simple, be my spy. If you betray me, you die. If you leak information about this conversation, you die. If they find out you ’re under a magical contract, you die. ”
’This is basically a slave contract! ’ Jimmy wanted to scream.
”…Do we have choices? ” He asked.
Ruby looks at her healing finger, ”No, you don ’t. ”
Jimmy sighed; he looked very depressed now.
Thomas looked at Jimmy curiously and asked, ”Hey Jimmy. Why are you so depressed? Something happened? ”
’This motherfucker!… ’ For a moment, Jimmy almost exploded with rage, but he swallowed that rage and tried to control his emotions.
”Just be quiet, okay? Don ’t make our situation worse. ” He spoke in a low voice as he bit his lip.
”… ” Thomas nodded.
Jimmy knows it was Thomas ’s fault that they were in this situation; he warned him several times to come back and stay close to the more experienced hunters. But, he was obsessed with looking for the vampires alone, and, in the end, they both got stuck in this situation.
But, despite knowing that, he couldn ’t lose control of his emotions right now. He needed to think about how to get out of this situation; ’The witches ’ contract can only be canceled by another witch, we can cooperate with that vampire now, and the first opportunity we meet a witch in the future, we ask her to void that contract… But canceling the contract requires an exorbitant amount of money… Fuck! Damned mercenary witches! ’
”Have you finished thinking? ” Ruby asked in a disinterested voice.
”… Can we try to negotiate the terms of the contract? ” He asked, a little unsure.
”… ” Ruby looked at Jimmy.
Jimmy felt his body tremble with fear when he saw Ruby ’s cold gaze.
”You seem to be getting something wrong. ” She spoke in words that made both Jimmy and Thomas ’ spines go cold, ”You two are of no use to me; or to my husband. I just didn ’t let the vampires of this house feast on your guts only for the reason I believe anyone can be helpful with a little encouragement. ”
”Death… It ’s a good incentive, right? ” She exhibited a small smile.
”… ” The two hunters were silent, and they didn ’t dare say anything now.
”Then? What are you going to do? ” She asked and added, ”Death, or become a spy? ”
Luna looked at the slight smile on Ruby ’s face and couldn ’t help thinking that Ruby was having fun with this situation, she was very similar to her mother; they both have the same cruelty and sadism… The only difference is that Lady Ruby is not as crazy as her mother.
