Rei waited for the end of Demonic Student Union meeting before asking Chloe a question that had been itching in the back of his mind. Ever since his conversation with Dionte where the topic of demonic summoning came up, Rei latched onto the idea to use it to get his wish. It may have conflicted with his ability to become a risen demon—no, it definitely did—but not looking into the option would be a waste in its own right. Rei had his entire life to work towards being a risen demon. A few setbacks were nothing.

Before he could miss his chance, he blurted out to the Demonic Emperor, "Can you teach me demon summoning and what I can do with it?" There could have been better ways to word it, but straight to the point was the best he could get out.

It was just after the meeting, and Chloe was in a good mood. Her initial reaction to Rei's request was excitement. She loved talking about those dark secrets. She had already planned out how she would start teaching them to her daughter, too; teaching Rei could be great practice.

"Sure, Rei! I'd love to."

But then Chloe thought about this for more than two consecutive seconds.

"... Though, I should ask. Why do you want to know about this stuff?"

Rei focused on Chloe's expression after he asked his question. It was the only way to keep himself calm. Her excitement allowed Rei to relax a little, before immediately stiffening up when she asked him why he wanted to know how to summon demons.

He should have planned for this earlier.

"W-Well... uh..." he stuttered, "I like demonology, and being able to summon demons sounds... in-ter-est-ing..." He focused on each syllable for that word, debating if it was the right thing to say. "And I wanted to know if demons could make wishes and... uh... how those work. I don't you don't really trust wish granter, but if you teach me I can do it safely."

He gave Chloe an awkward smile when he finished, not realizing that the entire time he had been rubbing the side of his arm, something he frequently did when nervous.

The other members of the DSU continued to filter out of the room, having some of their own side conversations here and there, sitting on desks, making plans, exchanging numbers. Chloe's smile faltered a little as Rei finished his explanation.

Ah. There it was. Wishes.

"I'd love to tutor you on demonology, but I can't teach how to safely get your wishes granted. The reason is, it's never safe. Not unless someone very powerful has a reason to do that for you as a favor. And you shouldn't rely on something like that."

She spent a moment quietly considering him. Chloe liked Rei well enough - she really didn't want the kid hurting himself. "I could give you the lecture, though. If you're going to keep looking for that sort of thing, you should know the dangers."

These were one of the times Rei wished he could turn back time. The moment Chloe's smile lessened, he knew he had messed up. Was it still possible to walk out of this room, act like nothing happened for a few weeks, then return for a second try? Possibly, but there were witnesses, and he was too tense to move.

Chloe had not stopped yet though. Rei still had a chance to get what he needed. "I know it's dangerous. That's why I'm asking you for help. I'll listen to any lecture. I'd just do it by myself if I knew what I was doing." His voice was confident enough for him to feel satisfied with his response.

If all he needed was a good reason for the demon to do the favor, he should have almost no problem. Just make his reason sound good and avoid messing up whatever rituals he had to do. He was getting some training for Chloe. He felt confident that he could do this right.

"That's exactly what I was afraid you were thinking." Chloe walked over to the chalk board. She picked up some chalk and started writing. "One of the most dangerous things about being an initiate of the dark arts is believing that you know what you are doing. Because once you learn a bit more, you might learn doing that thing you were thinking about could have gotten you killed. If you're lucky enough to just die. I can tell you about the less lucky ones some other time." Chloe was stealing that bit from a professor at the Academy. She didn't think that professor was correct, necessarily, but it did a good job of putting a healthy amount of fear in people's hearts.

When she was done writing, the list looked like this.
  1. Faustian Bargain
  2. As Gift
  3. Through Blackmail
  4. A Genuinely Equitable Trade
"As I see it, these are the four main ways you can get a wish granted. And I'm going to start with this second thing, because it's an easy one to figure out, and I sort of already mentioned it."

Chloe struck a line through the second option.

"If you get a wish as a gift, you're just extremely lucky. So you should assume that will never happen to you." She would pause, now, giving Rei a chance to ask questions or make objections.

Now he was beginning to get frustrated. Being confident should not be a bad thing when summoning demons. That was stupid. If a demon knew you were insecure, they would use that against you. Anyone would.

That frustration was quickly replaced with anxiety, which grew to be fear Rei was only partially successful at hiding. "Wait, wait... what happened to the less lucky ones? Do they get tortured or possessed or... something?" The expression he wore was one of, but his furrowed brows that were turned upwards and the way he paused during his sentences fave away his true feelings.

"Eternal, inescapable torment. Worse than anything you've ever felt or imagined, forever. I've seen it myself, and it still gives me nightmares."

She was dead serious. Another lingering DSU member overheard what Chloe was saying and, after a moment of staring, turned his head away quickly.

"You might be a bit luckier though, being an immortal demon yourself. You would probably just get eternal slavery. And by the way, if they don't just take it from you for not being careful enough, it'd probably be the cost of your wish."

Chloe watched Rei closely. She hoped he was reconsidering his whole plan.

Rei was at a lost of words. For what felt much longer but was only a few seconds, he stood frozen, looking up at Chloe with his mouth agape. There were other ways to get what he wanted, and summoning demons sounded like one of the worst ways. Something that would have to be the last choice on his list. But maybe Chloe was just exaggerating and only explaining the possible-but-probably-not-likely bad parts.

"Uh... Uh... What's the slavery like? Wait... What if Mom or Dad got me? They're strong demons. I bet they could protect me." Rei's relationship with Asmodeus was flakey at best, but he knew his dad loved him, he was just distant and other stuff to do. That was what his Mom was for, to protect and care for him.

"Well, the slavery is like slavery, so it sucks." Chloe held back a chuckle. "But honestly? If they really have you down there, they have you. It's possible Asmodeus could get you back if he wanted it bad enough, with all due respect to him, but I'm not sure. Depends on who you ended up enslaved to, really."

She shrugged. "You're probably out of luck if that ever comes up. Plus - it's worth noting, this is the kind of price you're probably looking at if you ask for a really big wish. And transforming your entire species would mean rearranging your whole body down to the genes, maybe even doing stuff with a soul. That's a pretty big wish."
