NAME: Reikou (alias)
Also, you have to know this before you read ANY of my stories: those published BEFORE March 2006 are going to be seriously horrible. Like they've been written by someone who had no idea how the English language worked and didn't care how awful the story sounded. Which was probably true back then. So this is a warning. DON'T READ ANYTHING PUBLISHED BEFORE MARCH 2006. If you want to, then read at your own risk, because I get embarrassed just looking at them.
I have a Tumblr if you're interested; it's endless-bonds. Feel free to message me here or there.
I also have an AO3 account (reikouhikari), and posted a story there that this site doesn't allow, which is "text messaging". So if you want, you can subscribe to me there as well. Maybe I'll move some of my "better" stories over there as well. I don't know yet.

The Celestials decided to listen to the Arrenians' prayers and They chose six people to be Their Guardians, telling them to stop the demons' plans. Although they managed to seal the Demon King and his followers away into another dimension, there were many who managed to escape and they waited for the opportunity to free their King. Over the years, the demons attempted to open a rift many times, but they always failed. Until ten years ago, when the demons managed to free the Demon King's five generals and then devastated the Yurinian city of Hanshi and the Esslaran city of Melrook. Prayed to for help once again, the Celestials responded by telling the High Priestess that she must find the reincarnated Guardians so they could help the United Arrenian Army defeat the demon army before the Demon King was freed.

In this part of the country, there is a well-known legend called The Six Demons and the Priest, in which a priest defeated six powerful demons by using various tricks and six children. Kagami Akatsuki is a descendant of that priest, and thinks of the legend as nothing more than an over-exaggerated retelling of something his ancestor had done. However, when he is paired up with Kinha Minami for a field trip, he learns that the legend is indeed true, with just one thing: his ancestor never defeated the demons—he merely sealed them away into six children, cursing their bloodline forever. And Kinha is a descendant of one of them. After nearly getting killed by the demon she's holding, Kagami wants to avoid the other demon holders who may or may not want revenge for what his ancestor did. But there's a group out there called Mugetsu who wishes to kill the demon holders, and Kagami is dragged into it for being Kinha's friend.

Only problem was that she was a blood-thirsty mercenary and thus completely uninterested in helping him. Undaunted, he decided to just follow her around, knowing she would give in eventually. After all, what was the worst that could happen?
