    Prologue

    In a dark space, 2 objects floated, both emitting white light which disappeared into the darkness. One object was a large transparent diamond that had a dangerous feeling to it, which was strange as it looked like an incredibly expensive diamond, not anything dangerous. However, no matter how expensive it looked, after looking at it for a few seconds you would want to run away from it as fast as possible.

    The other object emitting light was actually an old man who looks around 70 years old, with grey hair and wrinkles, but anyone who had been into a church would recognise him as The God of Intelligence. He was doing his usual study of the topic he enjoyed researching the most, which is humans.

    While looking at the human nobles, he found a young girl, nearly 16 years old, called Scarlet Dragonclaw, who made him very curious about. Her skin was completely white, looking like the snow that falls every winter. But that wasn't too unusual, he had seen similar humans before so it didn't interest him much. One part that made him curious was the contrast in her colours. She had light blue hair which looked similar to the blue sky, and the part that contrasted this was a pair of bright red tattoos on her arms. The tattoos were identical and were both an image of a dragon. As he had studied humans for a very long time, he naturally had seen this tattoo before.

    The tattoo was something that the occasional person in the human noble family called Dragonclaw would be born with. The name Dragonclaw naturally came from this tattoo, but the tattoo is actually just a mere tattoo, as no one had discovered what it does yet. The God of Intelligence had a few theories behind it but he hasn't been able to confirm any of them yet as the people who are born with it are very rare. This was part of the reason behind his curiosity.

    The white skin, blue hair and red tattoos combined together with her beautiful face made her stand out a lot, but he soon found out that her standing out didn't affect her at all. The reason behind this was incredibly simple, she simply doesn't leave her room, which means not many people see her. Her not leaving her room ever was the other part that made him curious about her. From a short amount of time researching her, he found out why she stayed inside.

    It wasn't like she was scared of people or she had a tragic past. She was just lazy. She spends all her time just lying around doing nothing, only stopping lying around to do basic things like eating etc. It's not even like she is stupid, its the exact opposite. In all her tests she had to do in the past she would easily get high marks without much effort at all, but despite being such a genius she was too lazy to attempt anything.

    Naturally, as he is The God of Intelligence, this waste of talent frustrated him, and he wished he could go and force her into doing work. While thinking that, he suddenly had an idea, so he called for his grandsons, one was a young man wearing a typical work suit, he was known as The God of Hard Work. The other was another young man, wearing pyjamas and had an expression that said 'let me sleep', he was known as The God of Laziness.

    He gave an explanation about Scarlet to the two, midway through though, The God of Laziness fell asleep and he got woken up with a slap to face by The God of Hard Work. This caused a mini argument but he was too lazy to argue much so he gave up.

    The three then stood in a circle, holding the hands of each other. The God of Intelligence quickly said something extremely fast, it was too fast to understand but it seemed to be a chant of some sort. A blinding light suddenly appeared in the middle of them and then quickly disappeared, but there was a thing standing in the middle of the circle that wasn't there before.

    This meant it succeeded so they let go of each other and looked a the girl, Scarlet Dragonclaw, who was stood there. She had a look of indifference on her face, as she looked around the dark space, first at the 3 Gods, who are famous enough for every single person over the age of 5 to recognise, and then at the diamond. She then went on to say in an arrogant tone "I see you have brought me here to give a diamond that suits this beautiful me" while grabbing the diamond.

    Before The God of intelligence could even attempt to stop her, the diamond had been grabbed by her, and then it shattered into pieces almost too small to see. The pieces flew towards Scarlet and all got absorbed into her hands. Scarlet looked at her hands and was about to cry out in pain but then realised there was no injury at all, but the diamond had fully disappeared. She looked at her hand with a concerned look for a moment, but after looking at it she couldn't find any differences so she decided to forget about it for the time being.

    "WHY THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT?!" The God of Intelligence screamed at her loudly after he realised she had broken and absorbed the diamond, which had been judged by the Gods as too dangerous and was given to The God of Intelligence to study it to find out what it does and prevent it from damaging anything.

    She lo at him with a bored expression, which seemed to say "Can I go home?"She saw the angry expression of the old man and asked: "Was that diamond really more important than someone as perfect as me?"

    Even The God of Laziness, who had a reputation of being too lazy to react to people, got a bit annoyed at her narcissistic and rude behaviour, but naturally, he was too lazy to say anything to her. The God of Hard Work, who had a reputation of doing all the work he can possibly do, obviously reacted to her. After thinking for a while, he decided that nothing he says will change her mind, so he decided to use actions instead of words. He took out a diamond from a container in his pocket that looked similar to the one from before, but a lot smaller and it didn't feel as dangerous, from his pocket and threw it at Scarlet and said this after it was absorbed into her body in the same way the other diamond was absorbed: "I have given you a present, you will be having bad luck until I decide that you have fixed your despicable personality!"

    Scarlet didn't know what he threw, but the other two Gods were a bit shocked as they knew what it was, it was called Crystallised Bad Luck. It has the effect of giving the people near it some bad luck, but it's effects aren't too bad. However, no one had ever absorbed Crystallised Bad Luck so they could only watch to see how badly it affects her, but even though they don't know how bad it will be, they are sure that her bad luck will look like she got cursed by the Gods.

    Since Scarlet had no clue that she just got given a curse that will ruin her life of laziness, so she simply asked: "The diamond you just gave me broke, can I have another one?"

    The God of Intelligence couldn't stand listening to her any longer and decided to send her back, he quickly chanted like before, and another flash of light appeared, and she wasn't there when it disappeared, leaving an angry old man, an annoyed young man and the third man was already asleep, completely ignoring the other young man shouting at him, telling him to do work.

    This event was only witnessed by the three gods and a young girl that was nearly 16 years old but the event was the trigger behind Scarlet's journey, which will span the entire world, causing chaos worldwide!
