This procedure went on for quite some time, days into weeks, his lessons and Fusco's abuse continuing without end. He would admit that he was a little sulkythis had not been what he had in mind when he was joining Demise, but the books in his library were interesting, and he had begun taking them back to his room to read before bed.
However, as of late, the abuse that Fusco had been inflicting had been worsening and Demise paid it no mind, although marks and proof of it were becoming prevalent on his body. It came to a point where he would hide away in his room, unresponsive to Demise's calls or Fusco's plea that they needed to continue their lessons.
The nervousness in Fusco's voice was strange, out of place from his usual apathy, and it made Ghirahim smug knowing that he had put Fusco in an uncomfortable place, just as the dark demon had done to him so many times before. It served him right.
He was examining the bruises an

As it was, Demise was determined to teach Ghirahim how to read. Ghirahim couldn't say that he was so thrilled about this new knowledgehe was perfectly poignant without knowing how to read and if it was a skill, it was probably a useless one.

Demise rested his chin in his hand as he waited for the boy to arrive to the throne room.
While today had been agonizingly dull, the preceding days had been filled with a plethora of interesting events. The whole of his minions were aflutter with intrigue at the new arrival and he had to admit that he was as well; the boy was just peculiar, all skin and bones but very assured in his abilities, and strangely captivating with his looks.
It was obvious that he had been fending for himself, as his mannerisms were uncouth at best and plainly lacking in etiquette at worst; he couldn't hold silverware when offered, couldn't read (although he insisted he was quite smart), and didn't know not to talk when his mouth was full. Although no questions of this sort had been raised thus far, it was clear to him that the boy was alone.
For all these reasons and more, he liked him.
There was something about this innocence which he could use t
