Rivaren - FourMa Ryago seated herself beside Rivaren and gently played with the white tuft of his hair. He smiled at her, still leaning against Sage with the wizard's arm around his shoulders.
"What do he be tellin' you about?" Ma asked him.
"He were blabbin' 'bout that voodoo stuffs," Rivaren answered, "He says I gots some, but he's just fibblin', right, Ma?"
"No, he don't be," Ma shook her head, sighing, "He be speakin' the truth, child. The magic be strong in you. I knew it was there long ago." Rivaren's jaw dropped at the gyptan woman's words.
"You's knew? Why's you ain't never told me?"
"I thought I be misreadin' it," she glanced at Sage briefly, "but the magic man's words be confirmin' what I hoped would not be true, about the child we gyptans have cared for so dearly." Sage looked at her sadly, almost as if urging her to move past that subject. Ma nodded and gently ruffled Rivaren's hair. "Did the magic man be tellin' you about Soul Beasts?" Rivaren wasn't sure he understood why they had sudd
Piece of Heaven - TenThe female angel had a look of pure bloodlust in her eyes as she swung down her blade. There was the sudden clang of metal striking metal, and Xen's eyes went wide as the sword landed with a solid thud, right next to his head after being knocked out of the female angel's grip.
"Dariel! What in the Heavens are you doing?!" She shrieked.
"I will do what needs to be done, Elana." Dariel answered, shaking his head. "Return to the Heavens. I will end his life myself."
"I will not leave, Dariel." Elana snapped. "I outrank you, therefore my decisions outweigh yours. Either you end his life while I stand here, or I will end his life myself." Dariel glanced back at Xen, and saw the demon staring back. With a sigh, he turned to Xen and raised his knife over his head. Quick as a flash, Dariel plunged his blade towards the demon's chest, but instead struck dirt as Xen rolled backwards onto his feet.
"You wouldn't make it that easy, would you, Azaxeniel?" Dariel smiled, knowing Xen had seen Dariel'
Piece of Heaven - NineXen ran from the house, quickly followed by another angel, though she had already taken flight as she chased after the demon. She had a sword sheathed at her belt, a gleaming silver blade, the perfect weapon against a demon.
"Filthy monster! How dare you intrude on the home of a human being?!" She screeched, her blonde hair flying out behind her as she chased him. Halting briefly in her chase, she looked over her shoulder at Dariel, as he stepped out of the house. "Dariel!" She snapped. "Will you not assist in bringing down this demon wretch?! Protect your charge!" Dariel sighed and spread his wings. It seemed that he had to put on a show for the Heavens, just as Xen had done for the Underworld. Leslie stared at him, shocked that he was actually going to get involved in this.
"You're not really going to kill him, are you?!" She gasped. "I thought-"
"I'll do what needs to be done, Leslie," Dariel answered, shaking his head. "No more than that." With those words, he took flight and flew
Must Love Dogs - FiveThe next morning, Daisuke awoke to find that he was alone in bed. Sighing, he sat up and got back to his usual routine. As he brushed his hair in the mirror, he wondered if he'd just dreamed everything yesterday. But as he reached for a shirt laying on top of the dresser, he heard a crash from the kitchen, and he immediately ran to see what had happened. Halfway there, he heard what sounded like a crying dog, and he knew that yesterday wasn't a dream after all. Upon arrival in the kitchen, he saw his new roommate lying on the kitchen floor, tears running down his cheeks as he lay among pots and pans, and broken glass.
Daisuke wasn't sure where the glass came from, but he saw something red and immediately thought the dog-boy was bleeding. Quickly he knelt beside him, pulling him close to comfort him and shaking his head.
"What happened here?" He asked him. "Are you okay?" The dog-boy was still clothed in nothing but boxers, but now those were covered in who knows what, so..they'd have t
