“You will move to the western building for the time being according to Master’s order,” the butler said to Felen, who was indifferent to her surroundings.
“Yes...” said Felen, agreeing to the exile.
Since then, Felen no longer lived in the main building, but in the west building, close to the servants’ quarters. Barend restricted her from visiting the main building. He isolated her from the outside world. Not knowing what was going on besides her golden cage.
Including Aghnya condition, who was in her room under strict guard. Felen believed being confined was better than having to witness Barend’s affection for Abelard, where she became the forgotten party, monotonous life without conflict. However, Barend crushed her expectation when he called her at certain times to meet with Abelard. Last, his anger became a dessert that she had to taste.
This continued until Felen stepped into adulthood. Happened until it made her bored and sick at the same time. She thought living like that would continue, but Aghnya came on the day of her Debutante’s party, changed all of them.
Aghnya, which Felen had not seen for a long time, appeared and gave important information that Barend intended to kill Aghnya and Felen so as not to become a nuisance that might destroy his plans. She didn’t want to admit it because even though Barend often punished him for the little things she did, his father still showed concern as a parent should do.
However, seeing Aghnya’s deplorable appearance, her doubts about her mother’s words disappeared. The look in Aghnya’s and her voice full of firmness made Felen sure that his mother wasn’t lying. Especially after she heard about Abelard’s mother’s arrival at his Debutante’s party, she no longer had reasons to refuse her mother’s will to run away together.
“We’d better get out of here before your father’s men come to kill us,” said Aghnya in a calm voice. However, she felt panic. The information that Aghnya overheard at the last moment made her not have much time to prepare. So she prepared nothing at all. Feelings of wanting to protect and save Felen drove her recklessness.
Although the plan was not well prepared, she had already thought about the best choice she could make for now. That is to go to his parent ’ best friend's residence at the forest border, hide for a while, then go deep into the countryside where Barend is impossible to find them.
“Mom, do we need something to bring? But there’s nothing important here.” Felen looked panicked as she looked around the room she had lived in for about five years since Barend had exiled her.
“No need. Mom has brought something important that we might need later.” Aghnya shows a medium-sized pocket that is at the waist. A pouch containing some jewels and gems for their needs. After that, they ran out in a hurry. Past the maids who were lying unconscious on the floor because of the brutal actions of Aghnya when she barged in.
Felen, who saw that, could only grimace, then apologised in her heart. She felt a little guilty even though she wasn’t the one who hurt them. Meanwhile, the golden-eyed black cat, who was quietly watching Aghnya and Felen from behind the darkness, displayed a satisfied grin. His plan was going as planned. The cat even seemed to sigh proudly at the achievements he had made. Then, unexpectedly, by the black cat that was Lucifer’s artificial form-- The Strongest Demon King, another figure appeared and interrupted his time in observing Felen.
“Yo, Lucifer, my dear brother,” said the man with blood-red hair. The black cat’s ears twitched when he heard the annoying voice of the demon who was his best friend, Satan— The Avatar of Wrath. Lucifer’s cat aura grew darker and gloomy. He disliked Satan, who he did not expect to appear. “You seem to enjoy your game, eh?” He ignored Satan’s statement as if the demon’s presence didn’t exist.
Annoyed at being thought of as an invisible being, Satan touched Lucifer’s cat cheek many times until the cat couldn’t help but turn its head with its bright round eyes glaring in disgust. He hissed disapprovingly. The cat’s sharp claws scratched his arm, giving a long carving that now adorns the back of Satan’s hand.
“Hey...! So sensitive,” complained him with a sad face.
“Go away.” Lucifer’s cat, which used to only meow, now used a masculine sound.
“Ah... you don’t want to share your fun even a little?”
“No, so find or make your fun,” said the black cat as he walked away to follow Felen and Aghnya.
Satan chuckled with a wide smile on his lips. His eyes even formed a crescent shape, showing that he was quite amused, although not sure what exactly he was laughing at. “Hm, have fun. Hopefully, the game you created doesn’t turn against you, O my dear brother.” Satan’s words are full of mockery.
The human body Lucifer had seen earlier slowly cracked and shattered like glass, then the wind blew them like fallen leaves. As Satan’s presence disappeared, rushing footsteps heard from a distance. The cat Lucifer, who was walking leisurely past the group of men dressed in black who came to kill Felen and Aghnya, chuckled over them. The demon was feeling euphoria because soon he would pick the fruit he had taken good care of. His good mood made him want to laugh out loud continuously, even though nothing was funny.
Meanwhile, Barend, who was waiting in his room, hoping to get some good news, was now punching his desk hard. The news conveyed by one of his men sparked his anger until veins imprinted in her neck. “Hurry and find both of them! Don’t let them escape or I’ll kill you instead!” he ordered firmly with clenched fists, ready to punch anyone who made his anger explode uncontrollably. He didn’t want the plans he had made for a long time to fall apart.
The guests that come to enliven Felen Debutante were already present. They will witness a perfect performance. The show where an accident would become the death of Aghnya and Felen. However, if the main character were not present on stage, the show certainly could not take place. “Find them before the show starts!” They immediately carried his firm orders out.
Freedom is only a dream when the devil intervenes. *** “Hurry after the two of them. Don’t let them run away!” Rough shouts full of anger continue to echo in the misty forest. Aghnya and Felen ran with all their might from Barend’s men. Sweat dripped down their bodies while the twigs scratched their skin. It hurt, but if they stopped just to look at the minor wound, they would capture the two of them. Now, they no longer have a secure place to take rest and shelter. Aghnya’s love for Barend is foolishness that she regretted after learning of her husband’s betrayal. Being tortured, she bears up, but when Barend tries to kill Felen— his only daughter, Aghnya will fight back. She did not realise her husband’s evil attitude toward herself and Felen because love blinded her. Even Aghnya’s parents opposed her marriage. However, under the pretext that one day his attitude would change after that incident, she forced her will to
“Felenia, do you want to come with me or let the humans finish you?” Felen turned her head, then looked at Leon’s outstretched arm. “Why should I come with you?” She chuckled. A bitter smile appeared on her lips as her gaze fell on Aghnya’s stiff, breathless body. “Because you’re my prisoner. Your mother also left you with me. You don’t have any perfect reason to refuse my goodwill. Staying here and ending up dying is not an option that you will choose.” His words were true that a doubt clung to her heart. The circumstances didn’t give her much choice. She took his hand. Even though she didn’t know what kind of future she would face if she followed him, it was better than death. Her golden eyes gazed at Felen. “Wise choice. Don’t worry, you will continue to be with me from now on,” he said that with a bright smile. Once again, she looked at his Aghnya body, which was covered in Leon’s black feathers. “What about
Your pain is the most delightful thing that I will slowly absorb. *** “My Lord, the preparations are complete.” Adrien approached Leon, who was looking at the beauty of the night sky in Devil Reign through the glass wall. He waited quietly, not wanting to disturb his master. “Look, Adrien...” Leon sighed as he spread his arms wide. “... one of my wishes is within my reach,” he said with a burst of passion. His face showed satisfaction as he licked his dark red lips sensually, feeling a pleasant euphoria bubbling within him. “Of course, My Lord. After all, you are indeed wonderful.” Adrien replied. This time, Leon chuckled. He put on a big smile. “Your flattering still sucks, Adrien.” His body turned to face the old servant as his hands tucked into his pocket’s pants. His golden eyes gazed coldly at Adrien. “You may go, Adrien. I’ll pick up my bride myself.” “Very well, My Lord.” Adrien lowered his head and walked
Felen saw her reflection in the mirror. Nothing had changed from her physique other than an odd symbol on her chest. She touched it with her fingers. This is proof that last night was not a dream. She would never forget it. It might even last a lifetime. Her body and mind remembered it. However, she still felt it was not real, or rather, she rejected it. Once again, she looked at herself in the mirror. This time, she turned around, surveying her back. However, there are no other oddities as well. Then at that moment, the doors opened wide, revealing the demon who had tortured her last night. “Wow…” The demon — Leon, whistled at the attractive sight. She covered her breasts and inched backward when he stepped closer. “It’s not what you think it is!” she said with a wary expression. He smirked. “I don’t mind if you think about something dirty, Milady.” “Stop right there!” She said, but he didn’t heed it at all, mak
All demons in the room looked tense. Except for Leon, who was sitting with a bored face on the throne. He was, oddly enough, still lenient when the general of the Interessengruppen suggest something that humiliated his greatness. The thing he was proud of as The Avatar of Pride. “Don’t beat around the bush, Alair,” he demanded. Alair bowed his head. “I didn’t dare to be presumptuous, My Lord.” His body trembled in fear as a light breath of Leon’s power blown towards him. “Raise your head.” Alair raises his head at Leon’s command. He stared at his master right in his golden eyes to show his sincerity. “It would be wise if Miss Felenia learns about the Demon World first,” he said that with a firm voice. Leon did not reject or accept his suggestion. He was still considering it. “So you’re saying I should put her in the Demon School?” After a moment of silence, Leon responded. “That’s right, My Lord.”
A royal carriage with a crest of three different heads landed in the courtyard of Leon’s castle. It looked spectacular. In front of Felen, a gigantic horse with black wings spread beautifully pulled the carriage. The horse’s eyes were white and looked lifeless. The carriage looked wonderful when it was flying in the sky. A truly amazing attraction for a human like her. It was like seeing a fairy tale come true. In the human world, such a thing would be impossible for her to see. The most surprising thing was there was no coachman. “Greetings, Your Majesty.” A deep, low-pitched voice came out from the black horse. It bowed his head in showing courtesy like royalty. It shocked Felen. She didn’t expect it could talk, even had a masculine voice. Another thing that made her surprised was the sudden appearance of Leon with a dark aura emitted from his body. “Long time no see, Zeron.” Those relaxed words with a firm ton
Felen wore a differentt attire from the other students’. It made her stand out. The white coat she was in stark contrast to the black uniform of the Academy of אשמדאי (Ashmedai) students. She was the centre of attention. Not just because of her attire, but because the teacher had mentioned Leon’s name. Lucifer, or Leon, is the king of the demons and she was the bride chosen by him. That was why they were curious for different reasons. One of them was a golden-haired female demon who was looking at Felen. Her eyes didn’t move the slightest bit as she watched her. “You’d better not annoy her, Miss Litiana.” The warning came from the black-haired man, who was leaning against the large window beside Litiana. His right eye is brown and his left eye is green with a cylindrical shape. It looked unique and scary at the same time. His expression seemed fed up when he realised Litiana would make a ‘small’ commotio
The Forest of Wonders is the largest and widest forest in the demon world. This forest differs from other forests in the demon world. Apart from its immense size, no one knows what kind of life and creatures live there. Only a handful of demons with high status and power know the secret behind the Forest of Wonders. This forest is very dangerous. Especially for humans, other than demons, and low-powered demons. The Forbidden Forest is an appropriate nickname for it because every creature that enters the Forest of Wonders always sees different things. That makes it dangerous. The forest always misleads people. Just like the demon which misleads humans. The Forest of Wonders only brings despair. It was the brief explanation written in a book by the previous demon elders. The book was in the demon library of the city's heart, and all the students of the Academy of אשמדאי (Ashmedai) knew about it. So, no one dared to enter the fore
