Lost Souls, Chapter 1: True Love
Hi, this is the first chapter of a storyline I came up with, hope you enjoy.
He watched her walking down the dark path, following every step with his eyes. It was a beautifull fullmoon night, the stars shining upon the clean sky. It was very late, but she didn´t care, she had to get water for her sick sister.
The moonlight made her look even more beautifull, her long blonde hair reflexing the moonlight, making it look like a silver stream, going down her heads and shoulders, stopping right before her rump, her soft white fur revealing only her silhouette on the dim light, revealling her soft curves in the darkness, her bluish eyes shinning in the darkness, making her look even more angelical than usual.
He was looking after her for six months now, and he should do that only for a week, but he inevitably felt in love with her.
But he was only hurting himself that way, he knew, better than anyone that he could never have her, let her know what he really is, or terrible things would happen, and he knew the punishment he would receive if he let it happen. But he didn´t care about what the others would say, his feelings were truthfull, he really loved her, and nothing could ever change that.
He followedher home, and after making shure she was safe, he disapeared in the cold night air.
"Looking after her again, Alexiel?" the cherubi asked as he crossed the gates.
He gave him a soft smile, and walked into his reality.
He assumed his real form imediately after crossing the white stone gates. Large feathered wings emoldurating his form, and white aura around his figure, his long white hair waving from side to side, his eyes assuming a light white shine.
He walked across an enormous room, with pillars on both sides. It was impossible to see the walls from the central path, you couldn´t see the pillars tops either.
He stopped right before huge metallic doors, seeming like weighting thousands of tons. They would be the last defense in case of an attack, but he oppened the black metallic gates without any trouble.
He felt the warm air around him, much comfortable than the cold room he was seconds before. The grass feeling very good under his footpaws.
But he knew he couldn´t enjoy all that, not now.
He was an Angel, a strong one, the seventh son of Lillith, the bastard son of Adan, one of the Seven Archangels, he was on the top of the hierarchy, right bellow God and His holy son.
But despite off all his power, he had a serious weakness.
"Yet again you postponed your duties to look after that female, Alexiel!"
The strong voice shaked the room he was stooding, an angry tone on it´s sound.
"Yes, forgive me, but I cant help myself..."
"I know what you feel about her, your feelings are truthfull..." The voice interrupted him, much sweeter this time "But you know you cant be with her..."
"I´m sorry, but she is the only pure creature I truly loved, she is so sweet, kind and pure...."
"Hold your words to yourself, Alexiel, you know what will happen if you decide to be with her!" The room shaked with these words, the angel wrapped his wings around him, like protecting himself. "The heaven and the earth will collapse if another being with such power is born, and your true love only would make it stronger!"
The angel lowered his head, and angry look on his face.
"I´m sorry, I wont try to be with her anymore..."
"You better not! And you know the punishment if you do so!"
The angel left the room with a sad look on his face, how could he forbid him from being with the only creature that would make him really happy? As the most elevated being on the universe, he should understand his feelings!
"Sir Alexiel! Sir Alexiel!!" the cherubi came running toward him, carrying a small piece of paper with a seal on it.
"Calm down Haziel, what is wrong?"
"This has been sent from the Council, it is very important that you read it!!" the young angel said between pants, handing him the letter, the seal emmiting a red aura.
"Okay, thank you, now go back to your post, you should never leave the gate...."
"Okay sir, sorry sir!" he ran back to the iron gates, back to his post.
"humm, let´s see what the Council want from me today..." He broke the seal and oppened the letter, calmly reading the messge as he crossed the iron doors, heading toward the white stone gate.
His face went from calm to worried in a few seconds as he read the letter, his fist smashed the paper as he rushed through the stone gate, not assuming his earth form as he crossed it.
He flew straight to the place they told him to in the letter, an old abandonned monastery, with large stone walls, and a huge entrance door.
As he crushed the wooden gate that blocked his entrance he could sense a strange energy in that place, a strong evil force was hiding in there, he knew it.
As he walked through the entrance door, he unsheed his sword, worried about what would be this time. He had slayed lots of demons before, but he never felt such powerfull evil energy like that before.
He could hear a low laugh in the room on his left, he sood right aside the door and sticked his head to see inside the room.
He saw the huge creature sitting on top of what looked like a huge pile of bones and ripped clothes. The smell was terrible, a horrible stink of decomposed flesh coming from it.
He walked in the room, he felt that smell before, but now the energy was much stronger.
"Archangel Alexiel! What a surprise! Welcome to my stinky den!"
The demon said, turnig around to stare into the eyes of the angel, a soft grin upon his face.
"Alkriel, the fallen one, I should have known! How the hell you got away from Erebus? I thought I trapped you down there forever!"
"Well, I managed to make a lost soul committ a sacrifice to set me free, if you know what I mean..."
"I know... and I see you got much stronger now, devouring all these souls..." the angel pointed to the pile of mutilated decomposed corpses "I´m afraid I´ll have to send you down straight to hell this time..."
"I´m afraid it wont be so EASY!!" the demon screamed as he charged against the angel, fire orbs now covering his paws, but Alexiel dodged the attack easilly, leaving his blade on the demon´s way, cutting his side, a deep cut, blood spilled on the floor, leaving a straight red mark on the floor, the deomon let out a loud roar as he felt the blade cut his unholy flesh, the cut burning painfully.
The unholy blood imediatly incinerated as it touched the blade, leaving it as clean as new.
"I´m afraid it will be that easy..." the angel said with a chuckle as he aproached the demon, his white aura stronger than ever now "Now dont make things worse for yourself, I know I dodn´t received orders to terminate you, but I will do if I need to..."
The angel slowly raised his sword, ready to send the demon back to erebus, but the creature turned toward him and hit him with a fire orb, throwing him against the wall.
"Okay, I didn´t saw that comming, but if you want that way..." the angel said angrilly, as he sheathed back his holy blade, his aura now assuming a red bright, his eyes turning into a couple of what seemed like orbs filled with lava. The old wood furniture incinerated as the angel crossed the room, a fire aura around him, flames covering his paws as he grabbed the demon by the neck, raising him him until his feet coudnt touch the floor.
"You asked for this.." Alexiel said with a bit of hate on the voice.
The demon whimpered a bit right before exploding in flames, his body shattered to pieces as the angel punched his stomach.
The explosion left the monastery in flames as he walked out the place, his face in deep anger as he did so.
"Stupid dumbass, he could be sent down to Erebus, but no, he wanted to be destroyed!"
He shaked his wings and assumed his earth form. The wings retreated into his backs, the hair assumed a long black collor, his eyes turned from the fiery red into an icy bluish.
He walked toward the river, to wash the demon´s blood off his hands.
He washed his hands in the cold water with a sigh, but when he raised his head and looked across the river, he saw her, standing in her full beauty, washing herself in the river´s water, her angelical body, nude in the water, idly cleaning herself, unaware of the other furson across the river.
He blushed insanelly with that image, but nod due to carnal desires, but because he have never seen such beautifull creature nude like that, and he who has seen heaven...
She looked to the other side of the river, and she saw what seemed like a feline form, long black hair going down to the shoulders, beautifull icy blue eyes staring straight to her, a silly look upon his face.
He blushed even more as he noticed she was looking straight to him, he turned his face away, an icy feeling following his spineline, he shut his eyes and murred to himself
She turned away as well, slowly walking toward the shore, slowly getting out the water, her wet fur showing her seductive curves, she shaked the water off her soaked fur and dressed back, then she looked to the other side again. He was looking at her again, but now as embareced as before, but he almost fainted when she gave him a warm smile, his heart pumping faster, harder as he noticed her wonderfull smile.
She turned away and walked back to the village, he followed her every step with his eyes, until she opened her home door and gave him one last smile before going inside.
He was confused, but he knew he would get in deep trouble if he get to talk to her.
"My god! She is even more beautifull than I tohught!"
He screamed as he heard the voice behind him, he turned his head to the side and saw the big black feline standing behind him.
"Rosiel! Never do that again! You scared me!"
"Sorry Alexiel, but I coudn´t help..." he smiled to the white feline as he helped him up "But you cant have her, you know that..."
"I know, but I cant help myself..."
"Nevermind, the council awaits you, we need to discuss some serius phenomenons on the erebus..."
"Allright, let´s go then"
The two felines disapeared in the wind, leaving a couple of soft white feathers on the floor.
