Demon’s Ascension

Chapter 1 - Calm before the storm

On a Monday morning, Ashe woke up a little bit earlier than usual. It was still an hour before he would usually leave for school but the sound of arguing woke him up. It was his parents which was unusual for them so Ashe decided to get up and out of his room carefully, trying not to wake up his little brother, and see what was happening. After he got out of his room his parents quickly noticed him and stopped speaking as if to pretend like nothing ever happened.

”Good morning Ashe ” his mother quickly blurted out with a forced smile on her face ”why are you up this early ? ”

”What were you talking about ” Ashe replied instead of answering his moms question.

” oh did we wake you up kid, sorry its just that I got an assignment so I had to leave early, ” his dad told him apologetically.

Ashes father was a mutant meaning he had unique abilities because of a mutation. He also worked for a firm called MAT which hired mutants and used them for whatever a client desired.

”Whats the case this time, ” Ashe asked with excitement.

”They want us to investigate something in the Wilds I think it was somewhere in the forest ” his father explained with a slight bit of sadness in his voice.

This is because of his ability to commune with the dead, which combined with the fact that the wilds are the areas where mutated beasts run wild meant that this was not going to be a safe expedition.

Now Ashe understood why Mom was so mad but there wasn anything they could do they relied on dads job to be able to live so close to the city center so all he could do at that moment was to tell his dad to stay safe with a sad expression.

”don worry about me ok, ill be fine, ” his dad said while holding on to Ashes shoulder.

somehow that small action made Ashe not worry as much. And after having an early breakfast they said their goodbyes and Ashe quickly got ready for school and left shortly after.

Ever since the mutations appeared citys got a lot more crowded as everyone wanted to feel safer under its protection. This meant that even early in the morning Ashe still bearly got on the cramped subway.

After standing in a crowded cart for 15 minutes he arrived at his station and left in a hurry cause he never liked cramped spaces. Now that he was a bit farther from the city center there were a lot fewer people walking about.

While walking he could see a lot fewer police than usual Maybe there was a report on the other side of the city he thought

thats because police would very often be at almost every corner ready for some mutation-related problem to occur however today there was only a single police officer on every street.

After about 4 more minutes of walking, he finally reached his school. When he got to class he could see one of his friends Emily was also here early.

Ashe had known Emily for 3 years now when they met in one of the shelters during a mutated beast attack. They among others at the time were playing cards and enjoyed each others company.

”Hey Emi ” Ashe said while walking towards his desk.

”Hey Ashe, what are you doing here so early ? ” she asked while doing the homework that she should have done yesterday not sparing a glance at Ashe.

”No reason just felt like it ” Ashe responded while putting the needed textbooks for the next lesson his eyes were also completely occupied with his current task.

”oh really ? ” Emily said skeptically.

”yes, absolutely, there is no real reason, ” Ashe said so seriously some would think he was swearing on his life. Because technically he wasn lying.

”However …. ” Ashe started after a short pause.

”No, not again, ” Emily said as soon as she heard Ashe. Now glaring at him

”Oh come on, its not that big of a deal, ” Ashe said jokingly ”this time I only need the math homework. ” now
