All alone in the darkness I sat, wondering, I’m wondering if it was time to leave yet. Hearing the whispering inside of my head, they’re telling me, telling me we’ll all soon be dead. My eyes shifted to the demon at the table with me. Ban or if we wanted to get formal The Great Demon Ban. Self proclaimed great demon of course. Though I have yet to meant a demon greater than Ban.
“It’s unlike you to become a part of the game.” Ban said his black eyes on me as he drank the blood that was in his cup. Most people trip over themselves to get to Ban. Everything about him invites you in. His lovely face, his delicious scent, his perfect body. The humans don’t understand how deadly he is until they are already trapped in his web. I bet even Zero don’t understand why he is drawn to the demon.
“I’m not joining in, I’m merely an onlooker.” I answered blowing bubbles in my cup of milk. Ban eyes ran over me but he didn’t say anything for a moment taking another drink before sitting his own glass back on the table. We were seated in the back of one of the few demon bars around. It was a nice place to come if you wanted to let lose and be your true self without humans around.
The demons in the bar were loud, most talking and drinking blood infused with alcohol. A few had taken to the dance floor in there two forms as they jumped and shook around doing whatever it was that passed for dancing these days. Of course anywhere there were demons there was the hookups. The random people scattered throughout making out or even having sex. Those pairs even had a group that watched them.
It was nothing that I wasn’t use to. I felt more at home with the demons than I have with the humans. Then I ever could with my own kind. It was probably because I was always an outcast, always drawn to the darkness when I was suppose to be something of light. Light was so boring though. Doing the good thing, the right thing. Was a blurred line. I was just the only one brave enough to admit it. For my sins I was casted from my home, stripped of my name, and told never to return.
Thinking of my past made me look at Ban again. The reason I had haunt for him wasn’t so we could drink together. “I’m guess I don’t need to tell you what the Order of Chaos is planning.” I said and Ban eyes shifted from something in the corner that had his attention back to me.
“They want to bring heaven to earth.” Ban said and my lips pulled back in a sneer when the words were spoken. “Those idiot Gods thing they can ruin my plan then I will sit back and allow them to go through with their.” Ban said and I sighed leaning back in my chair. “I would have thought you wanted this to happen. Given the fact that for the last million years you have tried to rejoin your people.”
“My days of Godhood is over. I want nothing from them by the blood I’m owed.” My hand clenched into a tight fist as I remembered my banishment. I had vowed to pay each and everyone of them back. Starting with my dear sweet sister. “This isn’t how I want it though. They will think they have won if I allow them to bring the heavens to earth. The day of light must be stopped.”
“Pia and I will handle it. I want you to do something for me though.” Ban said and he looked at me picking up his glass again drinking from it slowly. His black eyes were boring hole into my own. I shrink back from the stare, not before I afraid of Ban. I shrink back because people died and worlds ended when Ban got that look in his eyes. “I want Zero,” He said and I frowned.
“You already have him. I told you before I won’t lay any claim to him. My interest in Zero is just spiritual. His body and mind is all yours. He isn’t my type.” Ban titled his head back and laughed at me. I would have been insulted if I didn’t know Ban so well. Since my banishment and a bit before it Ban and I have been good friends.
