"I have a feeling that he would like a moment alone, too."
This was exactly right. Without a doubt, they all should have known that Veran was there...just in hiding. The city of London believed it was murder, and they were not far off. Veran has killed many...but he has not killed many he loved and cared about. In fact, there were only three people on earth Veran regret taking the lives of. His mother, his father, and Aya. The demon hadn't even left Great Britain before turning around for the funeral.
Coming out of hiding as the group left, he quietly approached Aya's grave.
The demon only looked at the grave for a second, before opening his mouth.
"Aya..." he began, cutting himself off for a second.
"Ever since I met you in that brothel, scared and alone, I knew deep down I had to protect this little girl. You have grown up tremendously and so have I, in some way or another." he caught himself almost letting off a laugh at that.
“You have changed the world...even if it cost you your life...” Veran fell silent for a second, looking down at the grave.
“I will keep an eye out for the others, Aya.” he cleared his throat, gently grabbing the black rose from his coat pocket, it tied in a golden ribbon.
“...Ich liebe dich, Aya.”*
And with that, Veran gently kissed the roses petals and placed it down, turning around and walking away back to the gate...and as he walked back, Charlotte stopped in her tracks, looking at who she knew was Veran. His left eye was gone...and covered in bandages...what had happened, she would never know.**
Alexander came to become a very skilled Grim Reaper and became head of the Forensics Division.
Nikolai went under the radar once more. He is rumored to be seen all over the world, and his activity is unknown. Though rumors say that he is serving as a medium between supernatural creatures around the world to keep them from fighting.
Gigermo decided that he wasn't cut out to be a Grim Reaper and quit, taking a world wide vacation and visiting the world he never got to know about. He accomplished his dreams of becoming a writer and became the mysterious author of one of the most famous mystery novels of the current era, "The Book of Roses".
Charlotte ended up becoming head of the Administration Division of the Grim Reaper Dispatch Society and helps welcome new members. She has stopped the fable that demons are horrible creatures, but still warns about them.
Antonio and Arturo have become mysterious figures of myth, countless of generations of children being raised under their care, as generation after generation tell stories of this pair of pirates and their adventures, and how they raised them. They eventually create the Sterben Orphanage, which stands to this day.
The Dream Village still remains in the forests of Great Britain, and Ghost Adventures crew's keep getting lost trying to find it.
Catarina merges the two clothing lines and creates the Everus-Pandora clothing line, which up to this day is the longest clothing line in the world still running. The clothing line has fashion shows and runways all around the world.
Wulfric and Lazarus created the Everus Foundation, which dedicates itself to bring awareness of child cruelty, and take in children and people who have been victims of abuse and help them get back on their feet. They co-work with the Sterbern Orphanage and are funded by donations, including donations from the Everus-Pandora line.
There is a picture just above the door of the Sterben orphanage and Everus Foundation, the same exact picture. It is old and was amazingly painted. In the picture...late Aya Everus, her fiance, Samael Pandora, butler Alexander Howle, and the mysterious butler clad in black, Veran Sterben. Everyone in the picture was smiling, and it was peaceful. Some people have claimed to see a man similar to Veran around, even to this day, but he never stays in one place for too long. Neither Alexander, Nikolai, Gigermo, Charlotte, Antonio, Arturo, Catarina, the Boogeyman, Wulfric, or Lazarus have seen Veran since the day Aya died. There seems to always be a mix red chrysanthemums, and black and white roses, placed in a bunch by Aya’s grave. They were tied together with a black ribbon, and some have claimed to see a man wearing all black placing them down. Some people move on, and even for a demon, he wouldn’t be able to let go easily. Even as time passed...as long as he wouldn’t be let back into hell, he would mourn. But for all eternity...the Everus family had an impact in the history of London...and the watchdog system was terminated.
Caught in the midst of misery, anger, confusion and despair...curses fall from your lips...
You’re calling...for me...
“Oh my...you are much different from my other master. You have summoned me, that fact is irrevocable, and what you have sacrificed will never return.”
“You’ve paid quite a heavy price...but whether or not you choose to forge a contract with me and fulfill your desires...is entirely up to you.”
“Now...make your choice.”
“Demon...I’ll make a contract with you!” ***
* - Translation: I love you, Aya
** - This was a self-inflicted wound by Veran
*** - Lines as said in Kuroshitsuji Musical 2015: Lycrois that Blaze the Earth
