Highschool DxD Volume 19 - Durandal of the General Election


I — Azazel am currently in the remote countryside of a certain country. At the end of the year, I was at a certain small stream holding something like a fishing rod. …Although I do enjoy fishing…even I don’t feel like fishing right now. The reason — is here. Sitting next to me and holding a fishing rod was a boy who had a slight smile on his face. His hair was green and black, roughly fourteen to fifteen years old, had normal features but was a handsome boy—.

“…You don’t like fishing?”

The boy asked me.

“…Not really, though in the past I did spend a few years on it.”

That was a lie. Fallen Angels have an eternal life, there was a period when I spent a lot of my time trying to practice and gain experience in fishing. Hearing my response, the boy made a bitter smile

“Eh, my enthusiasm has already faded. But, a long time ago I once did have enthusiasm…”

After that brief conversation, it was silent again. …I’d already kept this up for a few hours now. Seeing as so much time has been spent on this, there should be at least some results from fishing…. Unfortunately though, there are no fish in this stream. Even so, the boy still seemed interested in fishing here. The boy suddenly broke the silence and said “Known as the most sinister of all Fallen Angels, you are also their leader, yet you actually try to spread peace around the world. This is
such a joke. If Indra knew about this he would surely be laughing. …Or would he smile and say something?”

Then I asked the boy about my main concern

“There’s only one thing I wish to ask you. After it happens, can you please stop the beast?”
Hearing this, the boy looked surprised.

“666. Is that alright? Isn’t it a divine beast from your mythology?”
“The only one who can stop him now is you.”

After I said that, the boy smirked and replied
“Ophis is not here. Great Red naturally won’t accept. …the only one left then is me.”

The boy smiled wryly at me, then asked
“I heard that one of the young dragons on your side is able to communicate?”

“…Even if it was possible I don’t want to use it. As I don’t know what will happen.”

“A difficult request with unreasonable conditions. This isn’t really negotiating.”

…I understand. In my position, this boy…this god is not a person like me. I understood this but still came to ask him.
