"My name is Remilia Scarlet. I am a vampire. I am five-hundred years old, the most powerful devil in the realm of the living, owner of the Fated Spear of the Allfather!... And I am forever trapped in the body of a twelve-year old girl. "
The Eternally Young Scarlet Moon was not one for writing personal stories, but when Flandre asked to hear of the things that had happened in the last 493 years, she had a hard time saying "no."
But that was plenty for today. After all, it wasn't like she had to worry about dying before she finished.
I suppose I should be checking on the preparations for Flan's birthday. Sakuya's bound to have roped Meiling and Patches in by now. It should at least be fun to watch.
The girl cracked a tiny, devious smile, and began the walk towards her glass elevator.
Chaos. Indeed, as of that precise moment, the depths of any of the numerous hells would look pleasant compared to the mess of ribbons and banners and gift wrap currently in the foyer. And then, like a poorly made flipbook, a sudden flash of what Remilia was sure were blades, and in another, a perfectly arranged and decorated room appeared, Meiling and Sakuya tying the knots on the last and largest banner, this being the one reading "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FLANDRE!"
"Ah, well done! The room is perfect! I'm sure Flan will love it. It's good you got it done on such short notice, Sakuya, though I'd expect nothing less from you."
"Thank you, milady. It is good to hear you-"
"However... You really shouldn't force Meiling and Patchouli into such things. I thought we went over this before? Hmm?"
"Indeed! Sakuya, where do you-"
"Think these party balls go? Thank you for your concern, Miss Patchouli, but I can handle these myself. By the way, thank you for volunteering! I know physical exertion isn't your forte, but it was much appreciated! Meiling, I think that the last few bits of crepe paper should be used to make a walkway from Miss Flandre's room through the library to here; would you please come with me?"
And with that, Sakuya and Meiling vanished.
"Thanks for playing along, Patches." The Scarlet Devil quietly whispered to her friend.
"Hmph. I hope your happy; mystical studies have been set back three days thanks to this... Though I suppose it's for the best; it's been too long since Flan has everyone together."
"Oh, just smile already! I know you're just as excited as the rest of us!"
Seeing that she and Remilia were the only ones present, Patchouli give a tiny smile, before she covered her mouth and giggled from embarrassment.
"There. You feel better? Good. Now help me haul these gifts up to my tearoom. They won't get themselves there alone!"
