2 Into Hell
********************In the Phenex Mansion, several minutes before his arrival*****************
A gorgeous, brown haired woman appeared through a magic circle bearing the Gremory crest. This woman of other worldly beauty was none other than Venelana Bael as she had ended her marriage when she learnt that her husband had killed her best friend and had tried to kill her child too.
"So, you finally appeared Velly, I thought I would have to meet him alone." Spoke an equally beautiful Ruina Phenex.
"You know I would never miss a chance like this to meet him in person after so long." spoke Lady Bael airily.
"Well same here, I heard he inherited both the clans powers."
"Yeah, me too... it would be a perfect chance to see if the rumors are true."
Their conversation was brought to an abrupt stop due to a red magic circle appearing on the yellow carpet, and a green one appearing on the ceiling, both adorning the Gremory and Astaroth crests respectively. Both the magic circles came together in a clash creating a purple one hovering above the carpet from which a magnificent purple dragon seemed to appear roaring creating a loud roaring sound which scared the shit out of them. The dragon receded, slowly fading away and a boy of about 19 years of age seemed to take its place.
To say they were amazed would be an understatement. Manipulating and creating two magic circles was unheard of and such display of magic to a teleportation circle was thought as impossible. True, some clans could call upon specific elements, like the fire of the Phenex but those circles were created by elder devils who existed before the great war and were killed as they were too great a threat due to their extreme talent of magic manipulation.
To say a boy, only 19, could do so was outrageous. This confirmed the gossip, as this could only be possible if he inherited both energy and magic manipulation from the Astaroth clan and enormous magic reserves and slight resistance to all magic including light magic from the Gremory clan. To say he would be a beast in combat would be an understatement.
"Greetings Lady Phenex, Lady Bael," came a voice which screamed of authority.
Both the women in the room were a bit intimidated by his voice but did not show it.
"Greetings to you too, Mr. Naruto." both said in unison. "Welcome to the Phenex household. " Lady Phenex welcomed the blond.
"It is a pleasure to meet such gorgeous and esteemed Ladies. I know you saved my life due to your bonds with my mother. For that I am deeply grateful, so I have decided to give each of you a favor, which can be used to ask for my help any time. This time I'll help you for free, but next time your favors would be over. Got it ladies?" Naruto asked, his voice rich with authority and command.
"Y-yes" both said, again in unison. They did not know what to do, should they blush for his comment or stand still due to the steel in his voice. They could not fathom the boy in front of them he was an enigma.
"Well then now that the formal talk is over. I'm really glad to meet my mother's best friends and my saviors." Naruto said warmly surprising the two as they could not comprehend the sudden shift of personality.
"Don't be so surprised, I have to be like that in front of other High class devils as most of them think of me as a weakling who they can exploit to their heart's content." Naruto said, chuckling at the look on their faces.
"Y-yeah, it's just astonishing to look at a boy the age of 19 to be so well versed in the devil customs and be powerful as well. "said Venelana, with Ruina also nodding in agreement.
"Let's just get the facts straight, I'm not 19 years old any more, I'm more like 21 as I have been to another dimension where my true self in this world did not end or you could say it was as if I never went anywhere. And before you ask I'm not goanna tell how and where, as it is personal information." Naruto said seriously. Both the women's thoughts were along the same lines, 'What the hell! It's like he can read minds...'
"No, I can't read minds, it's just that I'm very good at reading people."
Both of them thought the same thing, 'Like, seriously!'
When they calmed down Venelana took the opportunity to speak. "We have invited you here to ask for your help in a very urgent matter."
Naruto gave them a smirk, "I hope it's not about the wedding."
"Yes, it is and I won't even ask how you know this as the wedding is basically public knowledge." Venelana said as she gave him a tight smile.
"Let me guess, you want me to crash this wedding as you don't want your daughter's future to be spoiled and Lady Phenex is fed up of her family's antics, right?" now, Naruto's smirk was full-on on his face, indicating his amusement.
"Y-yes." Venelana simply said as she had already guessed that this boy... no... this man, was quite knowledgeable about the inner workings of their world.
"OK, it'll be done." said Naruto said laughingly.
"Yes, we will see you in the wedding and if you need any support we will be happy to provide it." Lady Phenex said while still trying to study the man in front of her.
" Oh, and do you want me to stop your daughter from ending the wedding through vile methods?" Naruto asked still amused.
"W-what?" Venelana asked, confused.
"Oh, your daughter is trying to give up her virginity to her pawn to stop the marriage." Naruto said in a nonchalant manner, as if talking about the weather.
"What! Of course! Go stop her, I'll send Grayfia too."
"Well, I'm off to the Hyodou residence I guess." Naruto said as he vanished in the same way he arrived leaving the two stunned for a second.
