High School DxD - Rias in Wonderland

—This may be a punishment given to me.

Part 1

This is an incident that happened to me, Rias Gremory, and Hyoudou Issei.
"That is the only thing……I won't be able to accept so modestly."

Ise, who usually will say "Yes" to my commands, didn't agree to my order.
The Devil's job that is done late at night—.

The leaflets with magic-circle on them, that we either post into people's mailboxes or hand them out at the streets. The humans that receive them summon us Devils by making a wish to the leaflet. We then receive an equivalent price by listening to and granting their wish.

This rule also applies to us, the High-class Devils, the Gremorys.

The job of Devils should have ended as usual for today. However Hyoudou Issei, also known as Ise, who happens to be my servant Devil as well as my beloved speaks out his opinion.

"Umm, it's about the job Asia has to accomplish soon…… May I help her?"

He gave his opinion regarding the job scheduled for Asia with her regular customer planned very soon.

The job Asia must complete is to help her client move houses who lives in a splendid mansion. He must have thought that it will be uneasy for only the two of Asia and her client to do the task.

I would usually have accepted Ise's opinion right away.
However, back then I disapproved it.

"I won't allow it. If Asia can't accomplish at least this much, then it won't be for her own good in the future."

"B-But we are talking about moving the belongings of a rich person here, you know? I heard that the helpers won't be there because they took a day off, so I think it will be too much for only Asia and the client for such a task……"

What Ise said was plausible.
However, until this day, I was filled with dissatisfaction.

Lately, I can't help but think there are differences between how Ise treats me and those around us.
During dinner, Ise would praise Akeno's cooking more than mine.

During shopping, Ise would support Asia, Xenovia, and Ravel, who are even more unfamiliar with Japan than me. I also want him to tag along with my shopping, even for a short time—.

During weekends, he would always pay attention to Ophis and Koneko in the living room.
Ise also talks to Irina about their childhood. I......don't know about his childhood.

Those are some of the dissatisfactions I have. Each one of them are things I won't be that much bothered with—.

I know that he is kind to everyone. I know that everyone loves him. I am in a position where I have to accept those girls' feelings.

Even so, the wish of having him treat me more importantly is getting stronger. ……Truly, even I think I am a selfish woman.

Even though I lost him once already, I….. I don't want to go through that experience ever again, and I want to forget about it—. I want him to fawn on me, and I also want to fawn on him.
