Chapter 99: For the Justice and Order of Hell

While Hiroshi Noda and Ashen Mask Tomb Skull were deep in conversation, Uesugi Kiyoshi was interrogating a newly captured demon.

This demon's name in the human world was Yukichi Yokoi, and she was a teacher at Baguang Academy.

In order to instill fear in humans, she worked hard to create a theory of death, enticing the living to die by describing methods of death and the beauty of the afterlife.

Using this theory and her role as a teacher, Yukichi Yokoi successfully persuaded two students to commit suicide by jumping off a building. Unfortunately, she then targeted Tomie Kawakami as her third victim.

Tomie Kawakami had no desire to die at all; she was very content with her current life of luxury and extravagance!

In order to secure her own position, the lazy girl was even willing to spend some time learning about what Uesugi Kiyoshi likes.

Based on Yukichi Yokoi's understanding of human society, the best thing he could imagine was the shallow idea of "the queen eating two meat buns every morning and then using a golden hoe to farm."

But Tomie Kawakami led a more relaxed life than the queen, so this theory naturally didn't apply.

The defiant demon wanted to continue causing trouble, but the vigilant bodyguard arrived and subdued it.

"Don't get too cocky, humans!"

Sitting in the interrogation room, Yukichi Yokoi crossed his legs casually.

"If it weren't for Lord Ode's restrictions, I would have already returned to my true form and killed all of you!"

All demons are unable to use their abilities in the human world due to the limitations imposed by Ode.

Any demon breaking this rule will be instantly sent back to hell as soon as they act and will be sentenced to one hundred years of confinement.

If not, Uesugi Kiyoshi wouldn't have enough power to kill, no matter how much soul energy he had.

So he didn't argue, just smiled and said. You misunderstood, I was just curious.

"Curious about what?" Yukichi Yokoi raised an eyebrow.

"Curious why you don't harvest fear by creating oddities."

Uesugi Kiyoshi patiently explained, "Like the dissolution incident before, just one oddity harvested three thousand lives. And you worked hard, only deceiving and killing two people in a year, isn't that a bit, a bit too petty?"

"Do you think every demon has the chance to create oddities?"

His words seemed to hit a nerve, making Yukichi Yokoi furious.

"If possible, who wouldn't want to, but Lord Ode's standards are too harsh, for Little Devils like us, how can we have so much soul energy?!"

"Oh, what does this have to do with soul energy?" Uesugi Kiyoshi leaned forward, showing a curious expression, "If it's convenient, could you explain it to me in detail?"

Yukichi Yokoi couldn't wait to get back to hell without delay, so he explained everything thoroughly.

When Ode first came up with the strange policy, there were no restrictions on who could apply, whether big or small Little Devils.

As a result, he received countless applications every day.

Even the most powerful demon in hell, Ode, only had twenty-four hours in a day.

Not having enough time for proper review led to mistakes, as seen with Head Balloon and Tomie Kawakami.

About a decade ago, Ode added a requirement for soul power in the policy amendment, excluding the weaker Little Devils and keeping only over a hundred major demons.

By controlling the major demons, basic order was maintained, as the strength of the Little Devils couldn't cause much disturbance in the human world or escape Ode's notice.

From a broader perspective, Ode's idea wasn't wrong, but it was unfair to the Little Devils.

They also needed human fear!

Since they couldn't satisfy their desires through official means, the Little Devils had to disguise themselves among humans and scare people using human methods.

The tasks were complicated and the rewards meager, but besides that, what other options did they have? Who cared about their interests anyway?

After listening to Yukichi Yokoi's description, Uesugi Kiyoshi was shocked and filled with righteous anger.

"I see. So, you're really pitiful, and Ode is truly too much!"

"Ah, Lord Ode also has his reasons." When Ode was mentioned, Yukichi Yokoi became timid and fearful, "But honestly, don't we Little Devils have any magical rights?"

"You make a good point! So, do you need my help?"

Yukichi Yokoi seemed choked up suddenly, coughing violently, "Ah, human help, how can demons accept human help... what's the price?"

"What are you saying? All humans are born equal, that's a universal principle applicable everywhere, even in hell! As a person with a conscience, I absolutely won't allow the trampling of magical rights in front of me!" Uesugi Kiyoshi stated firmly.

.........

Ode, who was summoned, looked admiringly at Uesugi Kiyoshi and clapped.

"What courage! After interfering in the affairs of the world's largest country, now you want to meddle in the affairs of hell?"

"I am doing this to uphold justice and order..."

"You can only fool that Little Devil in your research institute with such talk!"

Ode impatiently interrupted Uesugi Kiyoshi's explanation, "Tell me, what idea do you have this time?"

"What about setting up a soul energy bank?"

Uesugi Kiyoshi opened the window, revealing the Mitsubishi Financial Group building outside.

"Absorb the soul energy of the Little Devils, give them some interest, provide soul energy loans so that they can apply for weird things. Isn't this beneficial without harm?"

Seeing Ode hesitate, Uesugi Kiyoshi continued persuading, "As the saying goes, it's better to let flow than to block. Even though you have set rules, they are still willing to take risks in the human world. In that case, why not give them an outlet and include them in the management?"

"So who will manage the bank?"

"Of course, it's you. Only you have the reputation to make the various demons trust, and only you have the power to control any potential damage."

Ode hesitated a bit, looking at Uesugi Kiyoshi's face for some answers.

"...What exactly is your plan?"

"If I said it's because the strange energy levels have been decreasing lately, not enough to go around, and I want more, would you believe me?"

Uesugi Kiyoshi's tone was very sincere, but it managed to anger the Order Demon.

"In that case, I'll grant your wish!"
