Ophis short story life 1 part 1(incomple 75%)

Tada! Here's the Ophis short story, life 1 part 1. It' a bit incomplete (1/4th of the part remaining but I gotta go to sleep now. Also, the Japanese here is a bit awkward so the english is a bit awkward as well, bear with it for now.

Without further ado:

That day, the department store-----turned into a pandemonium.

Life 1: An infinite shopping!

It’s an event that occurred soon after riot at the underworld ended, and the Ouroboros dragon ophis began living in the Hyoudou household.

“We have to buy Ophis-chan’s everday goods.”

…….My mother’s words are very correct. Since it’s one body, Ophis came to live with me-----she isn’t possessing any everyday good.

And that’s why, starting from clothes, she doesn’t possess any luxury items.

No, I can’t think that the strongest dragon-sama will be troubled about clothes, or likes but, saying that when in Rome, do as the Romans do; since she’s living in the house, I felt it’s better to ave the same things that the inhabitants of this house have.

Gathering the members living in the Hyodou house in the night, we ask Ophis questions.

The contents of the questions are, “Since you’re living here, is there anything you want?” and “How did you continue to live your life till now?”, are questions from which we ask about Ophis’ situation immediately.

First is the former.

The representative Rias asks.

“Ophis, do you have anything you want right now?”

While staying expressionless, she tilted her head and let out one sentence.

“Great Red’s neck”

That’s extremely dangerous! She replied in an entirely different direction!

Well, having her birthplace, the dimensional gap been occupied by Great Red, she can’t go back but, that’s Ophis’ no. 1 worry!

Since she’s living over here, she doesn’t need Great Red’s neck, right?

“…….Since we’re not Chaos Brigade, please don’t delve your neck into such a dangerous thing?”

While sighing I said that.   ……I see, she said it to those guys in such a lighthearted manner. With that as an excuse, they got a lot of power from Ophis.

While smiling a little, Akeno-san asks the latter question-----“How did you live your life till now?” is what she will ask.

“Ophis…….chan, is fine right? In what way did you live till now?”

When Akeno-san asked that, Ophis thought just a bit and then wordlessly shook her neck to the left and right. That action is cute. So much so that you can’t think this is the strongest and invincible dragon.

“I sat on a seat. I was in a room. I said my wishes. I gave snakes. Just that.”

……Due to just that simple answer of Ophis, the room became into an atmosphere where you couldn’t say anything. It’s a more harsh lifestyle than I imagined.

As if remembering something, she added.

“One more thing. ------Vali, became my partner in talking.”


….That bastard Vali, it probably weighed on his mind I guess. He’s a helpless battle maniac but I can’t think of him as one worrying about strange things.

However, with this it doesn’t become reference about her life. More like, will everything that comes to mind be necessary?

For the time being, we just have to go to the department and buy all the necessary things that we can think about. Thinking about that, Irina says with a difficult expression.

“Um, there’s something that really bothers me. More than that, if we don’t hear about that firstly, the everyday items that we buy will change.”

Is what she says. Something that really bothers her. What exactly is it?

After clearing her throat, Irina who has everyone’s gazes gathered on her asks Ophis.

“Is Ophis-san-----a girl, right?”


Ah. I see. I get it, that’s what it is, huh. What Irina was bothered about was----this person’s gender.

From appearance it’s a girl. Not to mention, a girl wearing black Goth Loli clothes. However, from what Azazel-sensei says, a long time back his appearance was that of an old man.

He’s an old man, you know? Due to this cute appearance you can’t imagine it to be that but……Furthermore, before that the appearance was different as well.

That’s right, this is a human shaped dragon-----can change its appearance at will. Right now it’s a human girl hwoever, for this Dragon God, the concept of a gender is not present is what Sensei told.

Since it doesn’t have a gender, Irina was bothered about it.

------is it fine to treat the current Ophis as a girl?

Depending on that answer, even the everyday items we buy will differ. Since a girl requires more items than boys.
