''THE BELLS TOLL FOR THEE.''
As they were walking down the alley to Aya's house, Jace remembered something that he should have asked earlier.
Luto: Yes, Marshall?
Jace: ... Jace is fine. Call me Jace.
Luto: Alright then. What is it?
Jace: .... Do you know anything about someone named David Cassel?
Luto: Cassel?.... That would be the most sneaky-ish band of demons from my realm.
Jace: Woah, seriously?!
Jace: Well... He tried to kill me, but he died before he could get to me. He dropped the Book Of Shadows.
Luto: Did he now? David Cassel....He must've been either possessed by a demon, either the demon himself.
Jace: I see.... Well that makes sense. So, the Cassels stole the book?
Luto: Probabily. Most probabily
Jace: Alright. Well now that we have that figured out... That's Aya's house.
Jace points at the nearest house on the alley as he walks.
Luto: Alright then.
They both arrive at it's doorstep. Jace knocks at the door and waits for around 5 seconds before Aya comes and unlocks the door.
Aya: Oh hey Jace!! she says and blushes slightly, remembering what she heard this afternoon.
Jace: Hello Aya. Good to see you again.
Aya: Mhmmm~.... As Aya gives her response, she sees Luto standing behind Jace.
Aya: Oh my, is this your friend, Jace?
Jace: Ah yes. This is-- he gets interrupted by Luto:
Luto: Mikazuki Luto. Jace's cousin. Glad to meet you. she says and smiles.
Jace didn't say a word about the ''cousin'' stuff and just went along with it.
Aya: Ah... Okay then. Glad to meet you too~! I'm sure we'll get along well. she says and smiles happily. Luto then returns her smiles.
Jace: Could we come in, Aya?
Aya: Of course! Come in.
The three of them enter the house. Luto and Jace left their shoes at entrance and walked into the corridor. Aya is heading to the kitchen, probably wanting to get them some snacks or a drink.
Aya: Soo~ Want anything to drink?
Just as Jace presumed.
Jace: No. I don't want anything Aya, thank you.
Aya: And you, Luto?
Luto: Nothing as well. Thank you for your concern.
Aya: Oh... Okay then. Join me in the living room.
Jace: Alright then.
They both enter the living room. A room full with paintings and drawers full with books. The room was especially nice for it's decorative design.
Jace: Your parents are away or something?
Aya: Yes, they will be back in two hours or something.... So, want to play something?
Luto: Actually....Aya, we would like to ask you some questions.
Jace:... Uhm, Luto?
Luto: Just leave this to me.
Aya: Well, sure, go on ahead please.
Luto: Have you heard of the....
