"You killed them, because you wanted to save me?" Shino looked at demons, confused. "Wait a moment. It was fifteen years ago and you don't look like average men in their forties, right?"
"Where did this conclusion come from?" asked Amanoshi.
"Because I realized that I met you before" explained Shino. "And you look the same as before. You even wear similar clothes."
"I was today years old when I realized that humans stare at us as they see something strange" said Amanoshi. "Our clothes are weird?"
"Yours not as much, but he looks like a drunkard" said Shino, pointing towards Akiyatsu, who made a confused face. "But you changed the topic. Are you not getting old?"
"When demon becomes twenty nine years old, they stop aging up, yes" confirmed Akiyatsu. "And because of that we're a little older than you think."
"Maybe we're even older than older" added Amanoshi.
"How old?" asked Shino.
"Three hundred seventeen" replied Amanoshi.
"Both of you?" Shino was seriously confused.
"Yes, both of us" nodded Akiyatsu. "Amanoshi is almost a month younger than me."
"So, you are immortal?" asked Shino.
"We can be killed" said Amanoshi. "But we can't die because of old age. And of illness. Have you ever been ill?"
"...no" replied Shino.
"You see, we just can't catch even a cold" explained Amanoshi. "Humans are so weak..."
"Speaking about being immortal, you are immortal too and you're gonna live until someone will stab you" said Akiyatsu. "But we have to count also a fact that you regenerate faster and that we are your bodyguards."
"But why are you my bodyguards? You have to?" asked Shino. "Or you want to?"
"We have to" replied Akiyatsu, showing him his right hand, when Shino could see half of letter "A", drawn in semicircle.
"It's the seal, which was put on us by your mother" explained Amanoshi, pointing on second half of seal on his left hand. "Thanks to this, we can sense danger and know, where you are."
"But your mother made a mistake and I got 75% of danger feeling and Amanoshi got 75% of navigation" added Akiyatsu. "So when you die, I'll fall into a coma and this will be the benefit for me."
"Don't tell such things or I'll smack you" mumbled Amanoshi. "Nor you or Akumarou will die. Period."
"Alright, alright, don't be mad" sighed Akiyatsu. "And you, Shino, go to your home. It's getting late and our seal will disappear."
"And you treat me like a child again" sighed Shino, shaking his head with disapproval.
But then, seeing the demon's urgent gaze, he went home.
