TDL&TH Chapter II: Reincarnated

Ah… insert phrase here that indicates the beginning of a typical reincarnation story.

Well, I certainly died. That much is a given.

I am Griffith Mallory – nay, I am Artem Lockwood now.

I was given another chance at life by Akasha, a being close enough to be believed as a deity. Akasha had offered me a chance of reincarnation so that I may once again meet Charlotte again.

Akasha warned me that a chance is still a “chance” – in a proper term, a gamble.

Being rather bored, Akasha decided to play British Blackjack (also known as Switch). My victory meant a higher chance of meeting Charlotte again and Akasha’s victory meant a lowered chance. It was a deathly close game that ended with my victory, but it was purely based upon luck.

“I will send you to where Charlotte most likely is located,” Akasha says, placing down the cards in his(?) hand and moves his(?) raven-black hair out of the way of his(?) face, revealing oak-brown eyes.

That is as much as I can remember.

“Awake already?” inquires a feminine voice by my side.

Emerald-green eyes, luscious blonde hair, and a elfin-like body. This rather attractive person is Akasha.

“You decided to follow me?” I ask in response.

“Well, you did win the game after all. It would leave a bad taste in my mouth if I did not suitably reward you.”

“So… what is my role in this world?”

“Demon lord~☆”


“Are you daft (punk)? You’re a demon lord~ just look at your status page~”

“And just how do I do that?”

“Easy! Just say 《Status Open》!”

“I swear to… you, I guess. Don’t know any supposed deities other than you… if it is a typical broken character status… 《Status Open》”

“OI. What is this, Akasha? Kpop Trash mastery? Otaku mastery? And surely Smartphone mastery is referencing something!”

“It works.”

“What about Anti-Communist Propaganda mastery?!”

“Dirty Commies.”



“You are something, Akasha…”

“I know, right?” she says with a proud smile.
