"Father Father!"

The burly man opens one eye, his wife's body tucked safely beside him as he hears the tiny voice wailing in his room.

"Aigoo...."

He lifts up the body of his daughter, her tears staining her soft puffy cheeks.

"What is it my daughter?"

"Father...monsters..."

The soft black curls fall down her mother's back when she sits up, the red pendant sitting safely against her skin as she smiles.

"Bad dreams again my angel?"

The little girl nods and quickly crawls to her mother, her little sniffles echoing through the silent room as her mother chuckles warmly.

"It's alright my angel, no monsters can hurt you here."

The girl looks up at her mother's beautiful amber colored gaze, her small arms wrapped around her neck.

"R-really Mother?..."

"Of course, we have a protector with us."

"Father?"

"Mmm...."

"It's all fairytales, let us all sleep it is late."

The little girl watches the man lay back down, her eyes trying to tell the little girl more than her smile.

"Fairytales....yes....come my Angel, you can sleep beside me."

The girl smiles and lays her back against her mother's belly, a soft kiss placed on her head.

"Mother....do monsters really exist?.."

The girl feels something cold placed around her neck, the familiar red charm now resting warmly against her dress.

"As long as you have this my Angel....nothing will ever hurt you."

"Really?..."

"Of course, but you must promise to protect it always, for it needs care just like you do."

"Is it like a puppy?"

The girl's mother chuckles tenderly and wraps her arms tightly around her daughter's body, a soft sigh escaping her perfect red lips.

"Much more valuable than a puppy my sweet Angel...it is something you will have with you always, but must keep hidden."

"Hidden?"

"Mhm, for people don't always like a protector of this kind."

"But isn't it a hero Mother?"

"Some heros are different my precious angel. Now, get some rest. It is almost time."

"Time?"

"Shhhhh."
