Sometime after the meal, several of the girls are taking.
Senko: "Maou seemed somewhat familiar with you, but I don’t recall meeting any of you before today, and it appears that Yami had never met you before either. When did y’all meet?
Thi: “Oh. That’s simple! We were with Psychopuppet’s group when he was hired to assassinate Maou!”
Yami jolts up. “What???”
Tazusa: “Well, we had just formed our squadron, and Psychopuppet was the assigned leader on our first job.”
Miriam: “I recall we were dispatched because of a demon trying to take over one of the worlds most powerful corporations.”
Mikan: “That does sound somewhat familiar.”
Thi: “Yeah. I can honestly say they could have sent a way more experienced team, and they still would have lost against him…”
Tazusa: “We even unloaded a Neunwelt Tactic on him…”
Mikan: “I’m gonna take it as that was your ultimate attack?”
Miriam sighs. “Yes. And he was barely phased by it…”
Tazusa: “The peculiar thing is he never actually attacked us back. To this day, I find that peculiar of a demon. If the Neunwelt Tactic barely scratched him, he probably could have ripped us to shreds in an instant, but he didn’t.”
Thi: “If you want to know the truth, during the battle, the floor collapsed, and he saved us from falling to our deaths.”
Tazusa: “He then said something about not wanting to kill anymore after being in “This Realm”.”
Miriam: “Maou and Psychopuppet became chummy after that. Turns out they have fairly similar interests.”
Tazusa: “So. What about you, Yami?” What’s the deadliest assassin in the universe doing in a place like this?"
Yami: “It’s kinda a long story. I first came to earth because of an assassination target myself. Through situations, I just couldn’t kill him. And with continuing interactions, I met his sister and was able to rekindle my relationship with my creator. We eventually fell in love.” Her expression saddens. “Then, one day, a different assassin was sent to put a hit on him. I was able to defeat the assassin, but he snapped psychologically, and sweared vengeance. He kept sending his subordinates, which I dispatched until one day he returned with a device that hindered my powers useless. I watched as the heart of my first love was impaled by multiple swords.” She begins tearing up. "I will never forget his last words.: “Yami. Run. Please. I want you to live and find another place where you can experience happiness.” "
The entire group is in tears at this point.
Yami: “I went into hiding with Mikan, Tearju, and Nemesis, who’s powers had been depleted significantly from a previous battle. At that point, I had decided as long as they were safe, I could pass on without regrets. So with everyone safe, I called out the assassin, and prepared myself for my end. I thought it would be over in an instant, but no. It felt like the battle lasted an eternity. Then, out of a miracle, that’s when I met Maou. The assassin attacked him, but Maou killed the assassin with one blow. I thought he would have taken the bounty on me, and even begged him to, but no.” Yami begins to blush. “He said I was beautiful, and refused to let me die.”
Mikan: “Right after then, that’s when me, Tear, and Neme first met Maou.” She points to Yami. “He arrived carrying her like a princess.”
Yami blushes harder.
Mikan: “We moved here after that.”
Mikan: “Yep.” She points to Yami again. “And this one was even able to find love again as well.”
Yami turns crimson and smoke rises from her head from embarrassment. “Mikan…”
