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
When Leon came back to his castle, he rushed to Felen’s room through the balcony. The first thing that caught his attention was Felen, who was relaxing on the sofa. She looked normal in a plain white nightgown, but somehow in his eyes, she was stunning. “What are you doing there?” Felen’s soft voice pulled Leon out of his fantasy. He adjusted himself so as not to look like a foul. It would be a shame if she found out that he caught off guard because of her. “You should have greeted me with a warm hug or at least a light kiss,” he said as he jumped off the guardrail. “Why should I welcome someone trespassing into my room?” Her arms crossed. “...But, I’m not a person?” His casual answer, wrapped in a questioning tone, created wrinkles on her forehead. He was not in the category of ‘people,’ but another dimensional being. She had lost the words she wanted to say to him when she realise that. “Whatever.” She
The air in Devil Reign was getting colder and colder. The sky turned grey with dark clouds slowly devouring the sky. However, the falling snow filled every corner of the city, looked contrast and overlap. White and black were trying to merge, like a monochrome painting. Felen watched all the changes from the balcony. The beautiful yet terrifying sight made her amazed. The gust of wind that hit her exposed skin was hot, painful, and piercing. It as if the particles carried by the wind were tiny fiery daggers. She opened her palm to feel the snow. As it touched hers, she flinched in surprise. The snow made her skin blister. “I’m wondering, are you a masochist, Felenia?” The soft and low-pitched voice startled her. When she turned around, Leon was sitting on the dark blue sofa. His crossed legs made him look relaxed, but gave off an impression as a ruler. “ ... What do you mean?” It was the first time she heard the word of
The night is still long as the madness of the humans continues. However, Felen, who could not witness all that, begged Leon to let her out of that cursed place. “Leon, I want to get out of here.” Her grip on his arm tightened as the sighs, groans, and growls of the humans grew louder. “Please...” She gave up, lowering her ego so Leon would let her go. “Very well.” She was lucky because this time he didn’t refuse it. He helped her by supporting her waist. Her nauseous made her vision blurry and so did her focus. “The human body is indeed weak,” he said with pity. She did not respond to his blatant ridicule. She was already struggling enough to support his own body. Responding to him only drained her energy even more. “Do you want me to help you?” She ignored him and continued walking towards the door that seemed awfully far away. “Are you sure you don’t want me to carry you up?” The
The night sky had taken over by a shining sun. Yet Felen’s journey in the human world — her hometown, still continuing. After a melodrama due to witnessing an incident that became a traumatic experience, Leon brought her to a different place. However, unlike before, where he used invisible magic so other humans wouldn’t notice their presence, this time he and Felen blended with them. They were like a couple on a date, holding hands together. She just followed him without saying much. She was still in a state of confusion and shock. Her mind wandered elsewhere. She didn’t even realise she almost hit a street lamp pole in front. People passing by made her head dizzy. The bright and warm sunlight against her skin, the happy sound of a child running in a small alley, a vehicle driving down the street, the shops lined up, the sound of birds chirping, and a cat meowing — it all seemed unreal to her. She felt like she was in a long dream.
