"Finished."

It was a gloomy day. Rain was pouring down from the sky, and a powerful bang of thunder echoed throughout the area. Then, a quick flicker of light zapped through the dark, cloud covered sky. The wind didn't help, either. It was like the Prince of Air was there right at that moment, passing through the area, leaving behind a tempest. The air smelt of rain - fresh, but also musty. The ground was muddy and it was cold enough to make you shiver. It seemed like night because the tall trees of this forest blocked out almost every source of light. Ah, I didn't mention, did I? Yes, I was in a forest.

You see, I had been returning from a mission that took place some distance away from the academy. The goal was to merely patch up some barriers and create several new ones, nothing more nor less. The mission took place in Ireland. I could have just used a key to get back to the academy, or rather, Vatican Headquarters, but that would not serve as any fun. To go through all of the trouble of going to Ireland and returning without any sightseeing? No, that just would not do. And so, here I was, looking around to my hearts content. It had been years since I had been here.

It felt nice to be back in Europe. After all, Europe was where my entrance was presented. That is the past though, and we should leave the past in the past. I moved through the forest like a shadow that blended with the darkness, unseen and unheard. For some time, I wondered if I was going to come across another person. That was sure to be a questioning confrontation. Then again, who would be out in a forest during such a storm? Long ago, it wasn't too abnormal to encounter another person in a forest during a rainy day, so maybe that was why I was thinking in those terms.

I snapped my fingers, and an odd owl appeared before me. It was as black as the night, save for the red pentagram on its chest and its piercing red eyes. I handed him a note and said that if he were to let it get wet, he would be exorcised in the blink of an eye. I gave him some quick instructions, and, with that warning in mind, he cautiously flew off, shielding the letter from the rain to his best ability.

The sky was still at war. I looked up and no longer were leaves and branches hiding the sky from my sight. I stood there for awhile and just watched the fight. Thankfully, I had my umbrella to block the rain from getting into my eyes. The temperature was dropping. Soon it would probably start hailing, and later, snowing. Hopefully the hail wouldn't be too fierce.

The edges of my mouth sharpened into a smirk. I took several steps to the left and stopped. Not one second later, a strike of lightning struck the ground where I was previously standing. Lightning is said to be five times hotter than the suns surface so obviously the air around me heated up quite a bit. And, following that, a clap of thunder struck the area. I laughed,
"You really must hate me, huh?"

I continued on with my stroll and hummed an eerie tune that dated back to the Medieval times. The trees eventually blocked off the view of the sky again. Nothing interesting came about for some time. That is, until, I noticed a presence close by. So someone had been following me? Or perhaps they merely on their own nature walk? I could only ask to find out.

"Who goes there?"

(I just saw your signature and it made me lose the game. Dx)

The storm raged on, a vast array of wind brushing past me. My clothing rippled and shrieked against the powerful force. I walked amongst a forest filled with darkness, no rays of light shown through the tree's that blocked all vision, it was as though I walked blindfolded. I was a strong priestess for my age, said to be even more powerful than that of a demon master.

I had been reborn from death. I had been killed by demons on a mission to destroy a lodestone to stop demons from crossing over into the human world, but even though the mission was a success, I had still been slaughtered in the very end, my magic drained and my body weary. Since that day, my soul had been trapped in that cave, that is until a new sacrifice had been made. A young boy by the name of Bill-E spleen, my soul instinctively took his empty corpse, forming and molding his body into a more feminine form, and at long last I breathed life once more. I was growing accustomed to this new life, I was not use to the 21st century in present day. I had much to learn.
In this new body I had a new power, I was capable of absorbing memories of whoever I touched. I felt like a thief. Due to this I didn't like to touch people hardly anymore in fear I was learning personal information that was private.

The lightening struck just above me a mile ahead, I could feel the rays of heat emitting from it. It was dangerous that lightning strike near here, a tree could easily catch on fire causing a massive problem. I heard talking just ahead, a man grumbling to himself about why the gods were punishing him. He must have been a religious man to be speaking to the sky, or maybe he was just using a metaphorical statement. That is until he spoke to me without turning around. He must have been very keen to his surroundings if he was to be able to sense me so easily.

The rain pelted hard, I felt my red hair drip down over my face. When I was young and lived in my rath, it use to be short, but in my new body it was longer. Speaking of the rath, I missed it dearly. It was so much different back then than it is here. We had huts, we all were friendly and shared them, we had bountiful harvests and dinners, we wore animal pelted clothes and painted faces, barbaric weapons, nothing like today.

The man ahead reaked of demon, not that he showed it on the outside except a little bit. I was a priestess who devoted most my life to destroying the demon race before they killed us. I wasn't for certain if he was good or bad, but I was going to find out once I approached him.

"I'm Bec. Who're you?"

(Winning. >) ...Wait...shit I just lost the game D:)

"I'm Bec. Who're you?"

This girl was powerful. She was beautiful and looked so fragile but looks could be oh so deceiving. She was spiritually powerful. She wielded holy power - my enemy. On a regular occurrence, when I met one with holy power, I would not have to worry much. However, this girl was stronger than the average holy one. I was around exorcists, priests, and priestesses daily. All of the following were enemies to demons, but now days, many of them were not as powerful as they used to be. They have degenerated from those times so long ago. Thus, I was weary of this girl known as Bec. Funny, that name sounded somewhat familiar. I wonder, why?

"How rude of me to not introduce myself. My name is Johann Faust V. It is an honor." I bowed. Could she see through my disguise? If I could sense her power, would she sense mine? It was most likely, but only time could tell. "What is a young girl like yourself doing out in such a storm? And a forest of all places? It's quite dangerous, you know." I straightened back up. My eyes flashed a bright green when another bolt of lightning struck not too far away. A fire could start at any moment, and if that did happen, the outcome would be most certainly interesting.

I looked into the girl's eyes. There was a strong guard that showed great will, wisdom, and power. However, they say the devil can see through your soul. Beneath that guard, that barrier, I saw confusion. What caused the confusion, I did not know; we demons were not omniscient. Some would like to think they are, but after so many years, I've accepted the fact that I, and we altogether, are not. The edge of my mouth sharpened into a smirk. Could such confusion serve as a weak point in this spiritually strong girl?
The script was beginning to be written - the author is at work.

(...I lost it again...Wow, I'm really impressed with your skills. You've really improved over the years. ^^)

Such malevolence befell of me, I felt an alluring cast of darkness engulf me. As such, I was weary, and a tad bit jumpy. It was not out of fear I would react, but the opposite. I had to react in order to not show fear. If I really was facing a demon, this meant that I needed to be on my guard. New spells had been learned over the centuries I had been gone, but as some say, old magic is always the strongest and overpowering, lest it be true, this meant I was far more powerful than the average magician of today. My hand rose slowly, pointing a finger at him.

"Its not my place to ask but, I could say the same thing to you...Its suspicious you're not afraid to be out in this weather, it would kill a normal human...But you seem practically resistant to it."

I was on edge, I didn't know how I'd approach him in a tactical way without a plan. I had no evidence to know if he was a demon, or half demon like my friend Bran. There was no telling what this man was capable of.

I put my hand back down. I wondered if I was giving off any of my magic. Could he sense it? Was he of a magical being as well? Priestess were known to summon power from the earth and sky, demons powers resolved entirely on hate and greed. That is what made the two different. I began to conjure up magic into the palm of my hand, just in case he attacked or ran. I wouldn't hurt him, the most I would do was send a bolt of energy at him and paralyze his legs. But I couldn't do that yet, not unless he made a move. I had to be patient.
If I was lucky, he was just a normal human and my hunches were wrong.

(Haha, thanks! 8D You're... as awesome as ever... pfft... stop showing off. xD)


"Its not my place to ask but, I could say the same thing to you...Its suspicious you're not afraid to be out in this weather, it would kill a normal human...But you seem practically resistant to it."

I smiled gladly and took control of the situation by stepping back. I pulled out my cane and paced around the area. "I am not going to let a dash of fear stop me from doing what I love most: Traveling. I've been out in weather like this many, many times. Resistant I am not, but rather, experienced and lucky. I hadn't a clue that such a storm was going to roll in during the time of my travels. Do you suspect me, dear girl?" I waved my cane around as if giving a lecture, "I know you are led to believe, but you shall know, I am not some supernatural being; I would never, for the life that I live, lie to a woman."

An abnormally frigid breeze, at least below zero, passed through the area. It stung like a thousand icicles. Even so, I continued smiling against the slight pain. I stopped pacing and set my cane down in the deathly cold earth. Again, I made eye contact with the presumed priestess. A wide, sharp grin plastered my face; my slick, midnight colored hair pointed at the tips, and for a moment I must have looked truly mad, seeming to ravish in a thought unknown to all. "Dear me... you've got too much tension in those shoulders of yours. Relax, take it easy - you're too young to be so tense." I cleared my throat and continued from where I had left off earlier,

"And while I may strike a character of suspicion, mystery, maybe even madness, I am not some creature of the abyss. As Nietzsche said, 'He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. Because... when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you'." Thunder sounded through the area, and I had to raise my voice to speak over the ear aching noise, "I am not of the abyss whom gazes back, but rather, the one who gazes into the abyss. I am a human, nothing more nor less."

When she began to summon that damned trickery in her hand, I had to bite my lip to stop myself from baring my fangs at her. I was frustrated. Why was I, of all people, loosing my cool to this woman? Was it because I was more weary of her than I normally would be around other priests and priestess of the like? There was something about the way how she wielded and used her magic. It was so similar to the ancient traditions... no, it wasn't similar, she was using old magic! I took another step back. My senses screamed at me to attack, but I stayed still. Should she intensify that power, I would attack on instinct.

(You're bluffing! I can't believe you. I'm so rusty in my rp's, this is horrible compared to what I can truly do! xD You have far surpassed me in the previous posts my friend. Besides, as much as I love the character Bec, I feel like I do a horrible job playing her. T_T And sorry it's short, writers block...)

He was using trickery and using his words in a sly manor to throw me off. He was a good liar, that I could tell.
"You wouldn't lie to a woman, but you would lie to a small girl." My face turned into a frown and I could see on his face that he noticed the energy charging into my hand. What gave him away was that my magic was not showing on the surface yet he still fringed at the feel of it radiating from my body. He was a being of magic, that I was sure of.

"I want to make this clear to you. If you are a demon, and you're lying to me, that doesn't mean I'm going to kill you..." I had a bigger motive, killing a lower class demon wouldn't do me any good. Plus, he didn't come off as a threat, yet. My goal is to destroy the entire demon race, meaning the bigger threats like demon masters who allow their lower demons to enter our world and cause havoc. I wasn't going to tell him that though, I still had no major proof what he was.

(Haha, no, your posts are still amazing! I don't see anything wrong with them. And thanks, but I still think your posts are just as good! XD You’re great at rping her, so stop telling lies :p Oh, it's fine, I understand.)

"You wouldn't lie to a woman, but you would lie to a small girl."

Oh, what truth was held within those words! But I have been lying all along; nonetheless, I suppose that I shall play along. "If I said that not to be true, then I would be lying to you as of now, and I would be breaking that vow I had made." I caught the frown that she made in an instant. I knew she could tell that I was uncomfortable with the magic she was beginning to conjure - that, and, the average human would never be able to notice the power of magic unless they saw it with their own eyes, thus, I now knew that I gave myself away. She knew that I was not an average human nor human at all.

"I want to make this clear to you. If you are a demon, and you're lying to me, that doesn't mean I'm going to kill you..."

Now that was quite interesting. As a priestess, I suspected that her goal was to kill any demon, powerful or not. I suppose my suspicions were wrong, though. She already knew that I was a being of magic, what point was there to lying any longer? I would give myself away sooner or later. In addition, this gives me a chance to put another job into action... I just hoped she would not notice who I really am and what my rank in Hell is, because that would spoil my chance. Then again, the Great Mephistopheles was a famous demon from many, many years ago. The only way she would know of me is if she lived so long ago, which was impossible. I still wondered, how did she know how to use Old Magic? Did she have a teacher who knew such magic? That was nearly impossible though... I had many questions to ask, but I would do so after a formal introduction. I stood calmly and spoke,

"I will lie no longer. You are a young, wise girl, as well as powerful. You already know that I am not a normal human, nor human at all, correct? All along, your suspicions have been correct - I am a demon. My name is Mephisto Pheles," It didn't sound that different from Mephistopheles, but for as long as I have used my name with a sly space, it has always thrown people off. "but you can just call me Mephisto. Now that introductions are aside, I have a question of my own to ask: How do you know Old Magic? I haven't seen a trace of it for years."

(Can't sleep, so I replied to this at 5 in the morning...And sadly my reply is longer and better now as opposed to when I'm actually awake in the day time. XD Oh! Look what I edited last night and finished. I'm really pleased with how it came out. It's the main guy characters from the Demonata series. Lol, I drew them in casual clothes. They don't actually look like that though, they probably wear different clothes xD Lol, if you go and look up the series, I wonder it you can guess who is who on the picture? ;D)

Spoiler:
 


Mephisto Pheles. Why did that name sound familiar? I couldn't place it, but I knew it on some level. A name like that you don't come across often, as it is more common to recall exotic names used rarely. 

He had been lying to me right through his teeth the entire time. It was expected for a demon to lie, of his caliber, he seemed to have more manors, but in the end they all ended the same. He must have been some sort of demon master perhaps, or at least a higher ranking demon. He wore nice clothes, used manors and spoke fluent English, though there was a tint of a Japanese accent to him. As mine was Irish.

He asked me a question I could not fully answer, but I could elaborate a bit to satisfy him. He seemed calm and collect, not passive at all nor intent on killing me, lest that even be his goal in the first place. A formal introduction seemed fair enough, since we were on one another's terms with honesty.
"My name is Bec MacConn. You're  hunches were right, I am able to use old magic. 1600 years ago prior, I was slaughtered by demons. My job as a priestess was to sacrifice myself and spill blood to close the lodestone and prevent demons from passing through, but...Things went horribly wrong. In the end, my master, Drust, was the one was sacrificed. I simply didn't make it out of the cave in time when it collapsed...My magic had been expensed entirely."

Everything came back to me, all my memories of my death and my past. I could almost remember it clearly and vivid, like a movie playing in HD in my head. The cave was practically pitch black, I remember Drust crying out, my close friend Bran stabbing him in the back before my mentor could sacrifice me to the cause. With my last bit of magic, I sent the boy out of the cave, saving his life. It had left me powerless with no way of escaping. Thus, demons were then upon me in my state of helplessness.
Screams in the dark.

"I am a priestess. In my time we did not have everything of the modern day world. We made pelts out of animal skin, lived in rath's, joined and submitted to large banquet's with dancing, music and a variety of food." I smiled at the thought and remembrance of my old home. A live I could never come back to. But now I must have left a wide open question to the demon, why and how was I alive if I died so many years ago?
"I was brought back to life unintentionally...After my death, my soul had been trapped in that cave for thousands of years. Once a fresh new body was killed, my soul latched onto it. I was given no option, it simply happened."
I then turned around fully in a circle so he could see the body I possessed, but was not mine.
"It belonged to a young teenage boy...But I managed to change it feminine as you can see. And now here I am, alive once more. Given a second chance."

(Wow... how can you write like that so early in the morning?! xD Nice edit, it looks awesome. I could never do that... Lol. Hm... alright, I'll take a guess. The guy with red hair is Grubs, the bald/darker skinned one is Kernal... and... I don't know who the other two are. Failure on my part xD)

I listened to her telling of the past with the utmost interest and respect. 1600 years ago? Dear me, that was quite some time ago! During that time, I was an arrogant demon - I was well known and the eldest son of Satan, and such fame got to my head. I was young and it was to be expected, though I still regret how very arrogant I was. Ah, yes, I hazily remember those harsh days of war with the priests and priestesses. I was in hell, sitting next to my father on the throne, watching and learning. Such terrible days, for both sides, that is. Bec MacConn... with the addition of the last name, a faded memory came back to me.

"MacConn..." I mumbled more to myself than anything, "I remember you, though the memory is murky. You and your friends were quite the talk in hell many years ago, during this war. You gave us much trouble and caused an uproar in hell. If I remember right, I came to your world at one time, and watched you from the shadows. Such was my mission to gather information." I continued listening, curious of the ending. If she hadn't made it out of the cave when it collapsed, how was she still alive? The demons were sure to attack her in her state of helplessness. That, and, a human cannot live for so many years. Why was she here now?

I laughed lightly at her mention of her traditions all those years ago,
"Yes, I remember being able to come around every once in awhile and watch you all. I was still learning about your kind. But sadly, many things have changed since then. I suppose that I much prefer how things were back then than they are now." I was not only saying that because I liked the challenge that humans used to present when I was up to my soul-snatching. Things were much more simpler than and... alright, I will admit that I preferred past times because of the challenges, but nonetheless!

Once she began speaking again, I, like before, listened keenly as she answered my questions without me even having to ask. So, that was how she was still alive and breathing today! How interesting and peculiar!
"What a tearful, heartwarming ending!" I said dramatically and held a hand to my heart. "But also, interesting! In that state for so many years though... it must have been difficult. You have my condolences." I bowed and took my hat off. Then, I stood up straight and put it back on.

"That leaves you with many questions, does is not? What will you do now? Many things have changed, are you familiar with everything yet? If you aren't, I wouldn't mind showing you around and whatnot! And do not worry, I have not one trick up my sleeve. You see, I am an exorcist. I guess I should have mentioned that at first, but I wasn’t sure if you would believe me... then again, who’s to say you'll believe me now... oh well!" I laughed before smiling, "Now, do you have any questions for me? It would only be fair for me to answer a question or two, if you have any. I would rather not have suspicions of each other about."

(I have no clue, I just somehow did. xD I didn't sleep at all this weekend either. I was home all alone by myself so I had energy drinks and stayed up til about 7 in the morning then went to sleep, and woke up at 10 in the morning. I got about maybe 5 hours of sleep overall both days and somehow I'm still functional. Correct! You got both of them right. Although Kernel is spelled with an E not an A. On the left is Beranabus/Bran, I mentioned him in my last post actually. He's the guy in love with Bec. And the guy on the far right is Dervish. He's Grubbs' uncle. He was a punk as a teenager though with purple spikes which was cool. xD)

I had never knew of what hell was, if there even was such a thing. I was unaware of the devil, either. All I knew was that there were different realms for demons, and there were demon masters. I was still unaware of religion, still virgin to the world I now lived in. I only knew what the body I possessed knew, that's the fastest way way I was able to adapt to my surroundings. Otherwise I may have been dead by walking in front of a car. I was so unaware of this new world, it was so vast. I never even knew that the world was round!

I wasn't sure if I should be cautious of him. He said that word spread around about us back in my time. He must have been a very old demon if he had existed back then just as I did. He didn't show it on the outside though. But that could go the same for Bran, he was an old man by now but due to being half demon he had lived all these centuries, still alive til this day. Perhaps he may be around the same age as Mephisto even. I was weary of him, was he safe to be around?

He spoke of the times when he was alive back then, how he knew that things were different then than they are now. I knew very well that they were, even the people. This new world was scary, it was hard not to be terrified. I didn't know what was what, or even where I was. The homes built now a days were even different! People weren't as sharing or kind, it was a dirty world that had evolved carelessly with regret and shame.

Now I remembered his name. His name was spread a lot throughout demons. It was complicated to understand them since they spoke a different language, but my mentor Drust could understand them. He spoke of a young boy named Mephisto trailing us, but because he was such a small boy he was of no harm. He didn't pose a threat either, he was just a curious kid. He was a powerful demon though, he was just young and unaware of his complete capabilities. Now that he was grown up, he must hold high power.

"How long had you been following us?"
I asked him. I only heard small details from Drust, he payed no attention to the demon child following and watching us. Or if he did, he didn't tell me very much about him since he wasn't affecting us on our travel. What was he following us for? Just curiosity? Or did someone tell him to? I had many questions, but I couldn't ask them all. Not at a time like this at least.

The thunder was louder again, the rain pouring even harder. I was now draped in water, my shoes squished beneath me whenever I walked and my red hair covered parts of my face. I could tell either the gods may be angry, or the weather was very morbid today. Either way, it wasn't a pleasant feeling, but I'd been in worse conditions so it did not bother me too much. "Why did you follow us?"

(...Wow. If I were you, I'd probably have fallen asleep in every single class xD I did? Awesome. Lol, sorry, my bad. I knew the guy on the far left was Bran... well, I wasn't entirely sure, but it's just what I was thinking. Haha, that's awesome. I should read these books... they seem cool.)

That confused vibe she had about her - it was still there, and it momentarily seemed to flare up a bit stronger. Was she thinking about the world and all she had missed during her absence? It was like when you missed a month or two of school. The class goes on and learns new things, while you get left behind. That, or you have to catch up on all of the work during the time that your absent, which is difficult because you have no one to teach you. It must have been a frightening situation for her. I wonder if she panicked at all when she awoke from her slumber. Being all alone in unfamiliar territory... it would have only been normal for her to panic.

"How long had you been following us?"

I should have known that she would be asking about that. If I were her, I would have been curious, too. "For quite some time. I first started following you at the beginning of your journeys, when that boy, Bran was his name I believe, came running to your wrath that was being attacked and overran by demons. I was among those demons. I pursued your group until you met up with your mentor, Drust. I overheard your plans to want to destroy the tunnel to our world, and after that, I left you all alone for awhile. I had to return to my world.

The next time I appeared was during your battle with Lord Loss. After that battle, I remember that you learned magic at an amazing rate. I will not lie, I was a bit impressed with how fast you were learning, though I knew the reasoning behind why. Your mentor discovered why and how you were learning so quickly, and after that, I went back to my world again. Later, I came back when your group encountered Lord Loss, once again. I witnessed the battle and deaths of your friends. When you and your mentor used magic to go to an underwater cave, I did not follow you. I knew that if I did, I would have surely died. When the two of you came back onto land, I listened in on your conversation with your mentor about sacrifice; and after that, I decided to go back to my world, thinking I had enough information. So, I knew of what happened next, but we all believed you dead. That is why I was surprised to hear your name and see you standing before me."


"Why did you follow us?"

I pondered this question for a moment. Should I tell her the truth or not? It was such a long time ago... however, it could still create a roadblock from me gaining her trust. But if I do not tell her the truth, she will eventually find out, which could lead to a bigger issue. My best bet was to tell her the truth, or at least half of it. "For two reasons: One, I was curious. Like I said, I was still learning about your kind back then, and that seemed like a perfect chance for me to observe you all. The main reason, however, is that I was commanded to watch you from afar and gain information. I suppose you could say that I was a spy of sorts. After I thought I gained a good piece of information, I went back to my world and reported in to... our master." I was careful not to say father, for that would surely cause Bec to think of me as a greater enemy than she already did.

The weather was not getting better. I had an umbrella to keep the rain off of me, but she did not. I stepped forward towards her, carefully, not aiming to make her anymore weary than she was. I smiled sincerely, hoping that may ease her tension. I held out my umbrella towards her,
"Take it. It was rude of me not to offer it to you earlier."

(Lol, practically yeah. But the energy drink helped me stay awake unfortunately. I just felt really sluggish afterwards. Oh jeez, YES. Read the books! I HIGHLY suggest it. Its a very gory book series and the demons are amazing. <3 There's a lot of everything in it. There's forbidden love, there's blood and gore, there's betrayal, practically everything. Without a doubt, it is by far my favorite book series. Well, besides the Hannibal Lector series. xD But yeah, Beranabus is my absolute favorite character. <3 Not many people like him though because he's a stubborn old man who doesn't care for anyone...Except Bec. >_>)

I listened intently. So he had been following us for some time after all. He followed us when we met up with Lord Loss during our journey and was even one of the demons who crossed the lodestone into our world. He was there in times I hadn't even noticed him. He must have been a very sly demon to go unnoticed and appear before us repeatedly unlike the other demons who came and went. He showed up more than once. I cursed myself for not realizing it until now. It was then that his face began to materialize in the back of my mind, my memory recalled who he was, what he looked like. He was a young boy, maybe in his teen years if not younger. He was a benevolent boy, but got into mischief a lot. He was like a cat, curiosity bound to kill him if not snatch him in its grasps.

A boy so young and of his caliber was sent to be a spy towards us? Why choose a child like him? Maybe he was right, maybe it was for experience, but back then he seemed to have came independently. Sure he had been in the group with Lord Loss and his lesser demons, but he didn't speak or interact with them, simply kept to himself. He knew who we were, he knew my mentor Drust and my friend Bran, as well as I. Now I was curious to wonder where he was. I considered the fact Beranabus might still be in the demon realm with Kernel and Grubbs while I stayed in the human world. For the time I had been living with Dervish since I had no where else to stay. The body I took was a boy who looked to Dervish as a father, and he felt he was a son. Dervish saw me as pathway to get into the boys mind because I used his body and contained his memories. He didn't treat me as a person, I was miserable there. I wished Beranabus would have brought me with them back to the demon world, I almost was losing my mind here. Everything was so terrifying and Dervish wasn't helping when it came to coping with my new environment.

Mephisto had offered me a tour of the area, but I shrugged it off. I couldn't trust him just yet, even if he was being kind and friendly. Demons were known to be tricksters, I had no way of knowing for sure. I couldn't let my guard down around him, I needed to stay focused. Mephisto knew about practically everything up until my death. That would explain a lot of my suspicions of how he knew my name. I heard his name from Drust, but never knew Mephisto was actually in the group with Lord Loss. I assumed he was a loner demon who watched from the shadows. This is what striked me.

There was still the main question. Who sent him to do the duty work? He said master, but there were many demon masters out there, surely he had a specific one. I was curious to know if he would tell me if I asked. It was worth a shot, so I tried it.
"Who was your master who sent you? Surely it wasn't Lord Loss. You hardly conversed with him...You hid amongst them but never one of them. You used them as a sort of shield as you were cloaked, hiding in the shadows where we would not notice."

At first I was cautious when he stepped forward, that is until he held out his umbrella towards me. It was raining hard and I had been drenched from head to toe. I couldn't believe I was about to be concerned he would get wet if I took his umbrella! Was I actually showing care for this demon whom I had just met? Though he showed me compassion, was it so wrong to do the same. I thought hard and debated. Making up my mind, I took the umbrella from him and held it over my head, shielding the rain from touching me. "Thank you." I spoke softly.

PostSubject: Re: The Wager (Bec and Mephisto only)   Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:14 pm

(It sounds freaking awesome. Yep, it's official, I'm going to the bookstore this weekend haha.)

It was while I was taking did my mind start to drift back to the past. I seemed to still be completely focused on what I was saying, but truthfully, I was not. Never did I usually speak of my past, but now that I was, I couldn't help but recall upon it. I did not have a memory like Bec, my memory was far, far from it, but I could still remember quite a few scenes from back then. I was 412 years, which wasn’t old at all for a demon. I did not have any other siblings then, but shortly after this whole situation was over, one of my brothers was born. Because I had no siblings, I was free to serve my father whenever he needed me to run an errand for him. They were simple errands, none of which included fighting unless I got caught and was forced to fight, which was rare to happen. I was still being trained to fight then. One day, father told me to go to the human world and prowl upon a couple of humans, who turned out to be Bec and her friends. He warned me to be very, very careful on this mission due to the humans' power. I was surprised because it wasn’t often that he would send me to the humans' world. Most errands were focused in Gehenna, or hell, and they were usually involving spying on demons who showed any sign of rebellion against Father. It was essential training. I did not question his command. I was a bit excited to be able to learn more about the humans. They always did interest me.

I possessed the body of a young teenage boy and journeyed to find the group of unique humans. It wasn't too hard, I just followed the instructions of a fellow demon. When I reached my destination, I was surprised. I wasn't expecting the wrath to already be taken over by demons. It was for my benefit, I had figured, because then I would be able to hide among the other demons. I did so until Bec and the others retreated. After that, I continued following them and pursuing them silently, curiously. It was because of them did I learn that all humans weren't as weak as I thought of them to be. I was actually a bit frightened of them for awhile, not that I would ever admit that, even now. Their power came off of them in waves. Each one of them had their own individual skills, but they were still priests and priestesses alike, and that was what scared me the most. They could have injured me with just a flick of their magic, or worse, killed me. Eventually, I became more comfortable with being around them. Much of my caution wore away and was replaced with slight carelessness, as I wasn’t too careful with being spotted. I had enjoyed watching them, but my enjoyment was cut when I found out that they were all dead - presumed dead, that is.


"Who was your master who sent you? Surely it wasn't Lord Loss. You hardly conversed with him...You hid amongst them but never one of them. You used them as a sort of shield as you were cloaked, hiding in the shadows where we would not notice."

"That memory of yours is really quite spectacular, even I am impressed. You are correct, I was not a disciple of Lord Loss. I knew him, had talked to him before, but compared to others, I scarcely knew him. And again, you are right. I hid among them only to blend in and keep myself from drawing attention." I started, using that to save me just a bit of time to think. What would she do if I told her that my father, or in this case, master, was the creator and king of all demons? I was almost positive that she would attack, and that was the last thing that I wanted to happen. I did not want to throw away her trust. Would she really ever find out who's son I was? It didn't seem likely, but for some reason, I felt that there was somehow a chance that she would be able to find out. My time was short. I needed to make a decision. "My master was Belial. He is an extremely powerful demon and is highly exalted in my world, even to this day. It was an honor and privilege for me to learn from him." Now, technically I was not lying to her. Belial was another name for the Devil, or Satan. Had she any knowledge of Satan, though? She must have known that there was a ruler of all demons, including demon masters.

My smile did not fade when I awaiting her answer of whether she would take the umbrella or not. It was a bit humoring to watch her mentally fight over what choice to choose. When she ended up taking it, my smile brightened.
"Your welcome!~" I hummed joyfully, quite out of character for a demon. After a minute of silence, another question popped into my mind. "What are you going to do about your friends that you were separated from so long ago? Have you thought about even trying to search for them?" Oh, I knew they were somewhere within my world. However, I hadn't been there for a little over 200 years, so I knew not the exact location. That did not mean I couldn't help her out with getting to my world, though... With a price, of course.

(Your replies are amazing...I am so envious... o_e; It's almost like you've read the books, you're filling in your character in parts of the books so magnificently~!)

Belial? I had never heard of that name before, but it must have been a high class demon with great power. Mephisto didn't seem like a overpowering demon, but he was strong from what I sensed from him. I knew not to take him lightly either in case something could go wrong with our conversation and cause a fight. So he didn't know Lord Loss very well after all, which was a relief. We had our multiple run-ins with him before, he was the one who even killed Grubbs' parents and sister, causing him to be alone. That's why his uncle Dervish had taken him in, otherwise Grubbs had been in the psyche ward for making the outrageous claim of demons killing his family and being labeled as insane. I had felt sorry for him and his loss. In fact, all of us had a huge loss in one way or another. Grubbs had lost his family, Kernel had lost his brother and was forced to abandon his parents to live the life of demon hunting, and I had lost my close friends. In one way or another, we all lived sad lives forced into a world filled with demons, no time for happiness and a normal life.

Mephisto mentioned that too. It was indeed hard on me, everyone I knew from my past was dead except for one person. He was busy in the demon world though. In fact, his greatest lost was me. I was the only person he had ever cherished, once I had died, he was heartbroken and miserable. That was when he dedicated his life to killing demons, since they were the ones who killed his one love. I never felt the same way back, but maybe deep down I felt the same way. If it wasn't for being half-demon, he would have been long dead just like all the rest of the humans in my time era. I truly was abandoned, he was the only piece left I had of my past to hold onto, with him gone I may just feel completely alone. These thoughts ran through my head, saddening my heart. But I needed to remember no one was dead yet, they were still alive and I needed to move on and not dwell on the past.

A window to the demon world takes hours, even days to work on. There was no other way I knew of getting to the demon realm though, and Kernel was the only one we knew who could patch a window together quickly within minutes. He was in the demon realm with Berananbus and Kernel, so there was no way I could cross over to them unless I took my sweet time to make a window to cross over to them. Not to mention, there was more than one realm, how was I suppose to find them?

"I have thought about it...But maybe they'd be better without me...we're stronger together, but..." I knew Bran was protective of me and worried for my safety. He didn't want to have me facing demons automatically right after I had been brought back to life. He assumed I deserved some peace after being trapped in that cave for centuries, he wanted to prolong my suffering as long as he could. And I understood that well but I didn't belong here, not in this century. I wanted to help. I shook my head, then finished my sentence. "Maybe I'd make a difference fighting with them." I wondered why I was telling him this. He was a demon, shouldn't he get offended knowing I killed demons? Why would he want to help me?

PostSubject: Re: The Wager (Bec and Mephisto only)   Mon Mar 26, 2012 7:11 pm

(Thanks 8D You’re doing amazing as well!)

I felt a sudden change of emotion in the girl. I suppose you could compare me with a dog, though if you ever did aloud, I would burn your tongue off. I say this because I could sense a change in emotion, like a dog knows when its owner is sad. I could not understand human emotions, I had not the ability too, but I could oddly sense them. Maybe it was because I have been around them for so long, or maybe not, I could never be entirely sure. I did know that Bec was suddenly saddened, however. Why was she sad? I unconsciously tilted my head to the side a bit. Was all this talk about the past bringing up painful memories for her? I frowned.

"I'm sorry..." I murmured. I could relate to how she was feeling, to an extant. With no true emotions, I could never fully understand her sorrow or emotional pain. But I knew pain. Demons were of pain. We inflicted it upon others. Emotional pain and physical pain were two different things, nonetheless, we inflicted both upon humans. Most demons would not even bother learning about pain because they just wanted to inflict it upon other people; but I learned pain first hand. In the past, I was not always the inflicter. These days though, I was. I was no different from any other demon. That did not keep me from being able to understand how she was feeling though. Even if she was experiencing emotional pain, and I had experienced the physical, that did not change the fact that pain was pain.

"I have thought about it...But maybe they'd be better without me...we're stronger together, but..."

I stayed quiet, not wanting to interrupt her. I hoped that she would have the desire to want to reunite with her friends. However, I only hoped this for my own reasons. You see, I didn't do something unless it benefited me. This case was no different. Should she have such a strong desire to want to reunite her friends that she would risk anything for it, then I was in luck. I would open a portal to my world and help her hunt for her friends; in addition, I would provide her protection all the way to her destination. In return, I would gain her soul. It was a fair contract, really.

"Maybe I'd make a difference fighting with them."

I grinned mischievously. That urge to always cause mischief never did fade as I grew older. So, she did want to join her friends. There was still one more thing I had to ask before I proposed my wager. It was a vital thing within my plans. I needed to know just how strongly she wanted to join them. If her desire to join up with them was tremendously strong, then I could easily go along with my plan. However, if it were the opposing, then I would have to put my plan to a halt. I would need to gain her trust; and sooner or later, she would grow weary and lonely without her past friends, then she would turn to me for help. I would make the same wager as I usually would, but go about my wording in a careful, sly manner. "How strongly do you want to join up with them?" Afterwards, I wondered if my question raised her suspicion of me. If it did, oh well - the past could not be changed.

(Omg, if you haven't seen tourrets guy, you must. xD He is SOOOOO funny..."Shirlena? ...AW SHIT!")




I knew demons hardly had any feelings, they felt little to no emotion for anyone besides themselves. They tended to be selfish and malevolent. Demons only brought pain and suffering, they knew nothing else. I wasn't sure if I could trust Mephisto, he was a demon after all but he seemed half human, did that mean he did half human emotions after all? He told me he was sorry, showing sympathy for me.

"I..." before I could finish a window opened up just a few meters from us, a bright blue light shinning. Was demons crossing over somehow? I wasn't sure but I had to be prepared, my life could be on the line this very moment. I conjured up another ball of energy as I had done when I met Mephisto, but this time it was a ball of fire. I aimed at the window, ready to make my move at any second. But to my dismay, it wasn't a demon.

(I totally just ruined your plan, I'm sorry. xD)

Walking through the window was a tall, scratched up, slightly muscular Grubbs. He stepped through but stopped when he saw the ball of fire in my hand aimed at him. "Whoa, don't shoot that thing at me." He smirked, being his usual humorous self. Then his smile turned into a frown when he was properly into the human world instead of halfway through the window. It didn't close behind him since he kept it open. "I had to bring the news. Kernel was badly injured, Beranabus tried healing him the best he could, but it wasn't working. The magic from the demon realm is what's barely keeping him alive, your a healer, we need you to heal him the best you can."

I knew it had to be serious if Kernel was that badly injured, I wasn't even sure if my powers could heal him. I was a priestess and a healer, but I had never saved someone from near death. Kernel was one of the pieces of the Kah-Gash so I knew it was crucial he be kept alive, he couldn't be killed or we'd lose our chance and destroying the demon race. I knew what I was suppose to do, even if I didn't want to go back to the demon realm. I turned to Mephisto and said, "I will do anything I can to help them."

PostSubject: Re: The Wager (Bec and Mephisto only)   Mon Mar 26, 2012 11:39 pm

(Lmfao. "BITCH. I LOVE YOU." xD He sounds like freaking batman.
Oh it's fine haha. I just typed that plan to make my post longer.)

When she started her sentence, I grinned, fangs bared like a lion that is about to end a lamb's life. However, she was cut short, and my focus was thrown off by a sudden gleaming bright blue light. I tilted my hat downwards, shielding my eyes from the light. I really did not want to go blind. I peered out from under my hat, blinking, eyes adjusting to the light. Was that a gate that led to my world? It couldn't be! Not many could simply open up a gate to this world! I glanced over at Bec, curious of what her reaction was to this sudden encounter. She quickly became defensive and summoned a ball of fire - just as I had expected.

What I was not expecting was who emerged from the window. It was a human! Not was it just any human, but it was one of Bec's friends. I examined him for a brief moment, trying to recall which human he was out of the group I had encountered so long ago. I noticed his red hair and the name quickly came back to me: Grubbs. This was quite coincidental! I stayed quiet and listened to the predicament he and his group were in. It was quite serious. It would be a shame of one of their own died. Would Bec really risk going back to the demon realm?


"I will do anything I can to help them."

There lay my answer. But even with that answer, I could not go through with my plan. I was not disappointed, though, because now things had just gotten even more interesting! The more interesting, the better! Now, what shall I do on my part? I was not going to risk loosing my prey to other demons; I am not saying that Bec and her friends could get killed so easily, but I am merely being cautious. If a lion takes its eyes off of its prey for a split second, a vulture could come down and swoop it away from his grasps. That meant I could not let her out of m sight, especially in the demon realm. And that meant... I would have to go to Gehenna. It had been over two hundred years since I've made a visit there... I would most certainly have to lay low. Either way, I had to take a risk.

"Then, shall we be going? Your friend’s life is fading as we speak." Yes, we. I decided to tag along, it would be fun!~ I strolled over to the portal, taking a quick, thorough examination of it. I wasn’t quite sure if it would hurt me if I passed through it. It seems that over the years, I've lost quite a bit of knowledge of old magic! I turned to Grubbs, "Is this made of holy magic? Me and holy magic really don't get along all too well." I laughed. Oh, that's right, I forgot to introduce myself! "Oh, I'm Mephisto Pheles, by the way. We've met before, but never face to face like this. Grubbs, right?"

(I never even thought of that! He kind of does now come to think of it...Well then, this should work swell. Is it just me, or does Mephisto seem a little protective of his "lamb"? xD Heh, I think he's quite fond of Bec if you ask me!)

When he said we I was shocked. He wanted to come with? Then again he was a demon after all, maybe he was intending to go home anyways back to the demon world. I wasn't one to tell him no, but I still couldn't trust him to come with us. Was he planning to part from us once we crossed over? I couldn't be fore sure, he was a strange man, I couldn't figure him out just yet. Should I stop him or let him go through? My mind was jumbled now with everything happening so suddenly, but I needed to keep a straight head and remember that Kernel's life was on the line.

"I'll go with you." Before I could cross over, Mephisto beat me to the window and looked at Grubbs, properly introducing himself. Grubbs gave him a strange look in response of confusion. He had a run in with many people over his life, not always did he remember every single face. He had demons to kill, no time for casualties and remembering unimportant faces. "Yeah, Grubbs. Mephisto huh? Never heard of you." He didn't care to really figure out from me who Mephisto was. He assumed since we'd been talking, we were friends. "It's not holy magic." "Enough talking, we need to go." I tried shushing him from starting up a conversation and pushed the half werewolf boy through the window, back into the demon world.

I walked through onto the other side, entering the Demonata. Grubbs led the way to where they were. They were just a half hour walk away, but I didn't mind the walk. Our surroundings changed greatly, a blood red river filled with acid, carnivorous tree's, everything here was dangerous. I had to be cautious where I stepped, but Mephisto seemed calm while here. It was like he knew everything to watch out for, every step he took was just a breeze to him. I wondered if it was a good idea keeping him with us after all.

"Why did you come with us?" I finally asked him when I walked beside him, Grubbs a little ways ahead of us.

(Nah, it's not just you. Wink Haha, I think you're right!)

"Yeah, Grubbs. Mephisto huh? Never heard of you."

I laughed lightheartedly, "Really? Now that's a lack of research on your part." I clicked my tongue in disapproval. When he notified that the portal was not made of holy magic, I blew out a sigh of relief. That saved me from using my own energy to make a portal! Bec was right, we should really be getting on our way. I waited for Bec to go through before; ladies first, as the saying goes! Once she was through, I took in a deep breath and followed suite.

How should I describe Gehenna? It was a disemboweled landscape busy with suffering, incessant heat, permanent scarlet twilight, and a swirling snowfall of ash. It was a dimension of darkness - no light could ever reach this godforsaken place. The torment was never ending. The soul does not die, and the fire is not quenched. Really, the everlasting torment that we put souls through was unexplainable. The air was toxic. What am I saying? This whole place is toxic. You know how annoying it can be when someone screams? Multiply that by a million screams all at once. Now tell me just how annoying it is. Now the fear in the air, I got to tell you, is so vivid. It's almost tangible. Everything is dominated by fear. There is no life in Gehanna whatsoever. Now do you see why I got so bored with sticking around here?

Nevertheless, with 1812 years of experience with living here, I knew my way around. I followed Grubbs, grinning, attempting to make light of the heavy mood. I hummed a cheerful tune while looking around. It was no surprise that this place hadn’t changed at all. I glanced over at Bec, who was cautiously making her way towards me.


"Why did you come with us?"

I smiled. I had been waiting for her to gather the courage to ask me that! "Did I not mention that I was an exorcist? I no longer side with the demons. It has been over two hundred years since I've even been to this realm. So, I am not a threat to you or your friends. I'm sure you still have your suspicions of me. You have every right to be suspicious, though, you really should put your suspicions to rest for now. I have no plans to harm you. I came along with the intention of escorting you safely until you reach your friend. After that, I will leave it up to you if you think that you still require my presence. That is my reasoning - nothing more nor less."

(Well goodness me, I think Beranabus will have some competition with another half demon! xD Let's see if Mephisto has a chance, eh?)

Grubbs didn't care to research him, he had no time to do so anyways. There were far more important things to do instead of remembering one single name, and above all else why should he should be important to remember above others? He disregarded the thought and walked onward. "Well, nice to meet you anyways."

I had almost forgotten he mentioned he was exorcist. But why would a demon choose to exorcise his own kind if he had been working among them when I was still alive many centuries ago? It could be that he was naive back then, he didn't know the truth about demons and simply followed orders showing complete obedience and loyalty. I was unaware of his motive, lest I even wanted to know what it was for that matter. Maybe his motive was vengeance, he had lost a family member or friend, wanting to punish the demons for what they were. Or perhaps one had treated him badly, causing resentment. Once more, he was a man I couldn't figure out unless I asked blunt questions, expecting a straight forward answer. But not always did he give them like I'd hoped.

"Lets say I do put my suspicions aside...What is your motive for coming along? Entertainment? Boredom? I really can't figure you out...I'm not going to shoo you away, I'm just curious is all."


We arrived on the scene. Kernel laid on the ground with a bundled bloody shirt of his under his head, his bare chest showing with a large gash, blood gushing out quickly. "Kernel?" I rushed over to him, checking the pulse on the side of his neck. His breathing was raspy, faint and slow but his heart beat was pumping rapidly, trying to supply enough blood to his brain to keep him alive.
"Bec," I didn't turn my head to say my hello's or acknowledge Beranabus who called my name, I had to get to work as quickly as possible. It was not my intention to be rude, but if I had given him any more time Kernel would be lost. I swapped Beranabus's hands from Kernels chest from him trying to heal him and got to work, using my own magic. Drawing magic from the earth, I began to patch his organs together slowly. After an hour, I had fixed his organs and patched his skin back together. My hands were covered in blood but I didn't mind. I then stood up and looked to Beranabus and Kernel. "He'll be out for a few days maybe...I fixed the damage, but it'll take a bit until he recovers consciousness."

(Mephisto will kick his ass. Lol, jk Razz)

I was a double-spy. I worked for both my father and the Vatican. Now one might ask, how was that even possible? It took a sly tongue and careful mind. Lying was an essential key in my job. You always had to be ahead of the game... like a meticulous chess player. What had caused me to become a double-spy? Oh, it was much too early in the game for me to reveal that. You will learn... in time. For now, you can only make up theories and wonder!

"Lets say I do put my suspicions aside...What is your motive for coming along? Entertainment? Boredom? I really can't figure you out...I'm not going to shoo you away, I'm just curious is all."

She had just hit the nail right on the head! "Has anyone ever told you that you are a good guesser? I ask this because you are exactly correct! You see, the most important thing to me is entertainment. If I am not entertained, I become bored; and when I become bored... I tend to become snappy. You don't want to be around me when I am snappy, I can assure you of that. That was one of the reasons I went to live in the human world. This world is just so... dull and predictable. It's monochromatic - black, white, and red! Who wants to live in a colorless, black and white world with the color of blood lazily splattered every corner you look? I don't know about you, but I surely don't." I lightly shrugged and looked around the area. "Torment. That is all that goes on here, day in and day out. Nothing exciting ever happens. What's a story without a plot?" I murmured and looked over at Bec, "Surely you must understand what I am saying?"

We arrived to our destination quicker than I had expected. It was probably due to all of the talking and explaining I was doing, to which I had no problem doing. I liked talking.
My eyes went directly to the battered up human who was lying in their own blood. That was quite a shame that he was so badly injured. I watched Bec run up to Kernel, promptly taking over the healing session, and begin her work. I watched intently, curiously, focused on how she wielded magic. It had been a long, long time since I had been able to witness traditional healing magic. The hour passed quickly, and during that hour, I barely looked away from her work. I didn't know why I was so intent to watch her. Was it because of my curiosity? I could not be sure.

Even if it was going to take a few days of recovery, it was good that he was going to be alright. Bec must have been one powerful healer - I could tell that just by the work she had completed, and I could sense it from her. Many people think that the only thing that matters is strength and power but that’s far from true. Without healers, all humans, and maybe even demons, would be dead. Gone. But that isn't so, thanks to the hard work from healers.
A question arose in my mind.
"Do you all have a hideout where you can bring him so he'll be at least a bit more safe than staying out in the open?"

(Lmfao! xD Now this I gotta see!)

I followed through what he said very slowly, taking everything in as he explained it. He had a lot of good points, it was the same for humans sometimes too. We grew bored of our world of technology, just wanting things plain or simple, or even the opposite. Some individuals lived plain simple lives and wanted excitement and to live on edge, to spend their last few years filled with refreshing breaths. Staying in one spot could become dull quite quickly. This world we were in, I had never been in this particular dimension before but I could understand why he felt this way towards it. Nothing good became of it, it was such a lonesome, dead piece of land. The screams that echoed for miles, they could be more annoying then blissful. The pain produced here, it could be a nuisance instead of emotional.

"Who are you?" Beranabus raised his suspicion since Kernel was now healed and he could deal with the matter. He stood up from Kernel's side but I stepped in front of him, placing a hand on him to step back. "He's not an enemy. Just a friend of mine, he's safe." Beranabus didn't like the idea, but he took my word for it since he trusted me and knew I wouldn't put my trust in someone unless I was positively sure about them.

"Grubbs, Bran, this is Mephisto." I properly introduced him to the two. Grubb's had met him earlier, but I re-introduced him anyways. "He's tagging along with me for a bit until he decides to leave. I'll be responsible for him if he gets out of hand or causes problems." The way I put it I almost sounded like a parent taking responsibility for a disobedient child in a glass filled store.

Grubbs picked Kernel up carefully, he was a more muscular boy who use to wrestle in high school so he was more capable of carrying him bridal style, Kernel's arms flopped to his sides. He led the way while we walked to the only hideout we really had that the disciples knew about. When we arrived, Beranabus chanted the spell to open a small hole in the ground, a ladder reaching down. It was a cave heavily protected with strong old magic, only Kernel and Beranabus knew the spell to get inside. If anyone wanted inside or out, it was impossible without the help of one of the two. When inside, it was a large cave with lots of space but little to no furniture in here. The most there was was a desk in the corner, a large hole in another for the restroom, and for sleeping were animal pelts to lay on instead of the hard gravel. This was actually the first time I had been here, so this is where they lived in the demon realm.

I heard someone talking, directing a question towards me. It was Beranabus. He seemed suspicious and he stood up like he wanted to challenge me. Despite this, I offered up a friendly smile. Bec interceded with what may have become a violent argument. She explained that I was a friend of hers and they would not have to fret over my presence. Nevertheless, I could still tell that he was uneasy, but he would have to deal with it. When Bec introduced me - such a kind girl she was - I bowed. It was traditional for me to do so. I laughed to myself at her wording of the sentence. I had been degraded to the likes of a child! How droll!

I followed behind the group as we traveled to the hideout. I whistled lowly for something to do. It was silent, excluding the screams and screeches in the distance, and I never liked silence all too much. I stopped walking when I heard the chanting of spells from Beranabus. An underground hideout, was it? It was also heavily protected with old magic! That was good, it would keep from pests finding out about this place. I scaled down the ladder. When I took my first glance around the cave, my eye twitched. How could anyone live here?! Maybe I had become too accustomed to living royally; I had lived royally all my life... but, still, how would anyone be able to live like this? Oh, sure, I had seen worse, but I didn’t remember useless things. I would not be rude and start downgrading them. It was not their fault that they had to live here. Nonetheless... if I were to end up having to stay a couple of days here, I would change the place around... whether they would like it or not.

I leaned against one of the cave walls, staying oddly quiet. What was there to say? I'm sure Beranabus and Bec were going to want to talk after being separated for so long. I wasn't going to intrude upon their conversation. So, I sat down on the ground. Now would be a good time for thinking and planning. If I were to get caught and Father found out about me being here, what would I do? Really, I shouldn’t be planning for something that is most unlikely to happen. That's just how it was. If I did not want to be caught, then I would not get caught. Even if I do, say, get caught, it wouldn't matter much. I would give him no reason other than the main. A verbal battle with him was always amusing; sometimes, it even turned into bloodshed and settlements to be settled. Oh what fun! I would need to keep Bec and the others away if it ever did come to that, Bec in particular. I really could care less about the others, but she was important. I wouldn't be able to say a quick hello to my brothers if everything went according to plan. Oh well, all of them, except for one, probably hate me anyways. Now, now, moving on to covering the rest of the details...

(Before we continue, I think we should decide a plot. I'm out of idea's, but there's lots of possibilities we can do. Do you have any idea's from here on?)

Inside the cave. Grubbs set Kernel down gently in a spot where he'd be most comfortable. We all knew with Kernel in his condition, things would be bad, we'd be at a huge disadvantage. He was the only one who knew how to open windows to different realms fast. We could all open windows, except ours took hours compared to him. We'd be wasting precious time like this. I saw Grubbs and Beranabus sitting by his side, trying to do all they could for him. I knew I wasn't much help now since I had already done all I could for him.

I walked over to Mephisto and reached to grab his hand for a shake to thank him for coming along. But when I did, I got a flash of his memories that I didn't intend to take. I saw something I shouldn't have seen, shouldn't have known about him. My eyes widened and I pulled him outside to talk. I knew it may be a bad idea talking to him alone now that I knew his secret, but if he killed me for knowing, that was a risk I'd have to take.
"You're, Satan's son?!" I had never knew who Satan was or heard of him, that is until I got a glimpse of Mephisto's memory and learned he was the ruler of hell and all demons. He was the main man, the man enemy that we didn't even know about. "How...Why? Why didn't you tell me?" My head was in a rush, I was too panicked. He would most likely question how I even learned that from touching his skin since I hadn't told him it before, but that could come later, -if- I survived that long.

Beranabus heard yelling outside, he then noticed Mephisto and mines absence and now became worried. Without Grubbs even noticing, he got up and walked over to check. He only peered around to hear the conversation, not to walk in on us and intrude. He wondered what all the ruckus was about and why I had been yelling since I was known for being a calm collected person who rarely lost her cool. He overheard what had happened and he too couldn't believe it.

"You told me you were demon, and I knew that, but you could have at least told me the truth about you. And here I was on the verge of trusting you..." My voice fell silent. I didn't want to admit the truth but I was growing fond of him, demon or not. He was becoming more than an acquaintance but a friend. Now that idea just went down the drain. "What else haven't you told me?"
