            Rin didn’t need Mephisto to tell him that keeping his tail exposed was a bad idea.  And, it didn’t have anything to do with “demons' etiquette”. 

            He’d never forget the sudden agony when that Amaimon creep hauled on his tail.  Or those endless minutes when the exorcists’ ring clamped tight and squeezed.

            And, he knew someone else would take advantage of his tail eventually.

            But, that didn’t matter.

            And, not because he was showing off like that Lucifer guy, daring people to attack his weak spot.  He wasn’t that kind of strong.  Yet.

            But, he was done lying and hiding.
