In the room you could only hear Shinohara's calm breathing and the soft purring of his ginger cat. Shino didn't know that someone was watching him. Bright, brown eyes watched from under the white hood as the Prince of Darkness sleeps peacefully with a glimpse of a smile on his face.
Shino suddenly woke up to hear some murmur in the room. He saw a red-haired, blue-eyed woman in a pink shirt with a bow.
"Are you awake, Aku-chan?" she asked with low voice. "I seriously didn't want to wake you up."
"Who are you?" asked Shino, staring at woman's blue eyes.
"I'm that person, who hired these two demons" replied a woman, walking to Shino.
"You are Akaichi, right?" asked Shino.
He should call her "mother", but he couldn't. She wasn't his mother. Not for him.
"Yes" Akaichi nodded. "I know that you don't know Moonish, so I talk in Sacrish, even if I can't do this fluently."
"Why demons are talking with angels in Sacrish, if they know Moonish and Sunish?" asked Shino.
"Oh, not every demon knows Sunish and not every angel knows Moonish" Akaichi laughed. "And, you know. Sacrish is neutral. Demons and angels usually don't like each other."
"But demons talk in Sacrish even with each other" noticed Shino.
"It's a matter of taste, Aku-chan" Akaichi smiled slightly. "Some angels and demons prefer Sacrish to their mother language. And Sacrish is the official language in both Hellmoon and Angelsun."
"I see" Shino got lost in thoughts for a moment. "Why are you here, by the way? And why didn't we meet earlier?"
Akaichi looked at him with sadness in her eyes.
"You know, Aku-chan... I can't come here often, because your father will notice my absence and he'll want to find me and it won't be okay, because he'll also find you and he'll kill you and I don't want to lose you" said Akaichi without catching a breath.
"Don't call me that" said Shino, ignoring her words.
"You're only twenty nine years old, angels still aging up in this age and I am six hundred fifty four years old, so I can call you as I want" replied Akaichi.
"You're talking so much" noticed Shino.
"Because I love talking!" shouted Akaichi, laughing. "And I love you!"
And she hugged her son.
"I'm glad that I live in single-family house" whispered Shino.
"Why?" Akaichi was confused.
"Neighbours won't be okay with the volume of your voice" explained Shino.
"Humans are strange" said Akaichi and she looked at the window, even more confused. "Aku-chan, someone is watching us."
Shinohara turned around suddenly. Behind a window he saw a person in a white coat with a hood over their head.
Shino jumped up from the bed and ran to the window. However, this person had already escaped and was now on the street.
"Wait!" called Shinohara, jumping onto a nearby tree and off of it to the ground. "Who are you?! What do you want from me?!"
The person just smiled and ran off. Shino didn't want to follow them. He had a feeling that he saw this smile somewhere.
