Flowers and a Demon

The Start of a New Beginning

I just thought it would kill some time. It was never supposed to be anything more.

It was on a cold December night, I was visiting an old friend in the Human world. There was an abandoned baby wrapped in a blanket, by the front gate to the mansion.

What’s this tiny thing? I picked the small crying baby up and brought it back to my mansion in the Demon world.

“Welcome back Master Leon!” Gilbert, my loyal demon servant, greeted me as I entered the mansion. “Is that…a Human baby?! How did you get it?” he exclaimed, upon seeing the crying baby dangling from my cane.

“It was left at the gate in the Human world, where I picked it up.” I simply explained. During this time the baby hushed down some, even though it was still sobbing.

Gilbert seemed a bit shocked, nevertheless, he gazed that the baby and said “It was left there on such a cold night? It must have been abandoned…”

“I regretted it two seconds after I picked it up,” I interrupted, not even acknowledging Gilbert’s statement. The baby once again began crying as I tilted it further away from me. “Why is it crying so much?” I annoyingly muttered.

Gilbert looked to me, then to the baby, and lightly smiled. “She’s probably just hungry,” he stated just when the baby stopped crying and stared at me with a big foolish smile.

“Ha, smiling at a demon. That’s pretty gutsy brat,” I smirked leaning my pale tightly structured face closer to its.

“When people say ‘a smile like a flower’ they must mean something like this!” Gilbert released a quiet chuckle.

“A flower?” I questioned, watching the baby. “Gilbert, the plant you’re raising on Earth…doesn’t look like this.”

With a light sigh, Gilbert shook his head, “It’s a Human figure of speech.”

“Hm, a flower, huh…” I pondered over the word. “Alright, I decided. Your name is Hana.” Grabbing the top of the blanket where the baby was wrapped in, I held it up and smiled to it. “You’re going to live here from now on.”

“Eh-!! You’re doing something so random again!!” Gilbert stunned by my decision. He knew very much as I did the law I was just about to break. However, he had no choice but to agree to the baby living in the mansion. After all, he is my servant and he must obey his master.

Life on Earth is pretty boring but I thought this would be a good way to kill time. If she gets trouble-some, then I can just abandon her again as punishment. That was my unconcerned attitude.
