Through Thick and Thin

Chapter Text

He let out a grunt of pain as he was pushed to the wall of an alleyway.

“What was that for? I can’t believe you would do this, Kara! To your own brother! What will the others think-”

“Stop using his voice.”

“Huh? What are you talking about-”

“You heard me.”

His face went white. 

“...Fine. Can we go now?”

“Drop the disguise.”

The eldest closed his eyes and sighed, revealing his true self. Smoky body and all. 

“What are you and what are you doing in my brother’s body?”

“Can’t you tell with the horns? I’m a demon. As for why I chose him as my vessel, I just jumped at the first one I could find. He isn’t perfect, but he is proving to be rather useful…Maybe I should keep him."


“Oh? And why not?”

“Because I won’t let you.”

“And how, pray tell, would you be able to? You’re just a human. want to make a deal. Hear me out. If I turn you into one of us, then I’ll let him go and possess someone else. How about it?”

“....You promise that he’ll be free of you?”

“Scout’s honor.”

“....Alright. I’ll do it.”

As soon as he said it, a toothy grin grew on its face, watching him clutching his hoodie in pain.

The mist began to unravel from his body, releasing the pale man underneath it. 

A wisp-like figure appeared behind the second as he caught his brother and placed him gently on the ground.

“I gotta say, it’s been a pleasure doing business with you, Karamatsu. You are by far the most interesting mortal I have ever met. I'll be seeing you on the other side."

With a wave of its hand, it began to leave. 

But before it could, a sharp feeling pierced its head. 

“Wha...This feeling.."

It froze.

"No. It...It can’t be-”

It whipped its head back to see a light heading towards it and screamed.
