Val chuckled. "Yes, I suppose I can tell you... I'm thirty-one".

Adrien raised his eyebrows. "Really?".

"Yes", Val said. "Surprised?".

"Of course I'm surprised!", Adrien chuckled. "At this point, I thought you might be like, five hundred, maybe five thousand years old...".

"Well, every demon who is five thousand years old must have been thirty-one, at some point", Val smiled, leaning his head over one hand.

"I -- I guess!", Adrien laughed.

Now, with the secret off his shoulders, he can be at complete ease with Adrien. This is who he really is.
