Savior

Silence. It enveloped the people. Seeing all those arrows pointing toward them made their hearts stop. There were so many lights. So many arrows. Too many for anyone to survive. Not a single soul would be left when they hit.

They were going to die. When those arrows hit them, they would be no more. No homes to return to, no stores that they used to frequent, no restaurants filled with laughter. No children singing and playing. They would all be gone.

No one would survive. This would be their last moments.

While the demon laughed, the villagers thought as one.

This is it. I will die here.

There would be no running. No trying to escape the massacre. They knew there was no escape. No point in even trying.

In their last moments, they accepted it. The once happy little town would perish in an instant.

As the arrows seemed to move an inch, the villagers hugged the nearest person. They didn’t care who it was, they clung to each other. Desperate for some comfort before it all ended.

The light arrows moved another inch, preparing to rain down on the poor village.

With a final laugh, the arrows made their descent.

“No!” A desperate cry reached the ears of every person.

The arrows stopped plummeting half way to their targets.

“What? What’s going on?!” Aika spread her arms in front of her, willing the lights to carry out their tasks. But they didn’t budge.

“What the hell?!” The red headed demon grit her teeth and flew under the arrows to see what was wrong.

Her eyes widened as horror struck. Misa was standing on the ground, arms outstretched before her. A red glow encased her hands that started to spread to her whole body. Black tresses floated around her as her power increased.

Aika turned to peer at her once light green arrows, only to see that they had turned a bright red.

“How? You took control of my arrows? That’s impossible! Not even the Demon King can manipulate another demon’s powers! How are you doing that?! Who are you?! What are you?!” Aika screamed at Misa. The other demon was breathing heavily, red rivulets of blood streaming down her arms. Her head down, she gave a light chuckle.

“I don’t know.”  The lights suddenly moved. Their target had changed, now aiming toward Aika.

“What?! No, don’t-!” The deadly spears of light hit their target and disappeared in an instant. Aika was gone, leaving no body behind.

Misa, panting heavily, looked down at the earth as the red glow slowly subsided. Eyes drooping, she took a moment to stare at where her enemy once was.

“Damn, she escaped. Stupid shifting skill.” Eyes drooping, her bloodied body started falling toward the ground.

Crap. Looks like this might be it. The humans will certainly kill me when they find me. Oh well, at least I’ll go out saving people. Even if I caused the almost massacre.

She lay in the small castle courtyard, awaiting death. As her crimson orbs slipped shut, she caught a glimpse of feet in front of her.

See ya, world. You’ve been horrible.

~*~*~*~*~*~

Silence consumed the village. Complete and utter silence. The lights had vanished, along with the red-haired demon.

The people didn’t know what to do. Was it over? Did they somehow survive? What had happened? Were they saved?

They couldn’t see anything that had happened with the two demons. All they knew was that one moment, those light arrows were going to slaughter them all. But then the next they had turned red and disappeared.

They were alive. They would live to see tomorrow. To see kids grow up. To see the bright sun rise and set once again.

One demon was gone.

Only one remained.

The End?

“AKEMI?!”

Dust clouded the vision of the King. He ran to the cloud, desperate to see his nine-year old daughter.

“Akemi?!” He called out, but no answer came. Just as he was about to enter the cloud, the dust disappeared in an instant. Silence filled the destroyed courtyard of the castle.

Crouching in the middle of the scorched earth was Misa. It appeared that she was holding something in her arms while surrounding it with her body. Time seemed to stop, everyone waiting for something to move. To see if she was even alive.

Slowly, the woman withdrew from the object she was protecting. A little girl with shoulder length sun-kissed hair came into view. Her light brown eyes wide and staring horrified at her protector.

Misa leaned down to the girl’s ear, her lips just brushing the skin.

“Run.” She whispered and pushed her in the direction of the King. The little girl stumbled a little bit, but remained standing.

“Akemi!” The King yelled, finally over his shock. He dashed toward her, once again. Akemi, hearing her father, looked at him. When she didn’t move, Misa gave her a light push.

“Run!” She yelled. An arrow went zooming past the demon’s head and blew up behind her. Misa dove toward the child, rolling to a stop just as she got to her. Before the little girl could react, Misa had picked her up and moved toward the King. Meanwhile, dodging all the arrows that followed her.

“Akemi!” The King shouted, wanting his daughter in his arms. He tried to keep up with watching Misa’s movements, but lost track of where the two girl’s were after what seemed like a second. Once again, clouds of dirt covered the small clearing. No one could see a thing.

The King made a fruitless effort to clear away the dust with his hand. Coughing, he walked further into the cloud, not giving up in the slightest. He had to get to his daughter. No matter what.

All of a sudden, he felt something warm being pushed into his arms and piercing red eyes could be seen a few inches from his face. He held onto the thing in his arms, looking down to see that it was his child. He looked back at the eyes to thank her, only to find them gone.

The King’s worried gaze fell on the crying girl in his arms.

“Akemi. What are you doing here? I thought you were in Zellia.” He kissed her whole face repeatedly, holding her tight. Isan, who wasn’t far behind his King in the dust, came up behind him.

“We must get out of here! Now!”

“Daddy, I’m scared!” The little girl clung to her father for dear life. Afraid that if she let go, he would be gone forever.

“I know sweetheart.” He looked toward the exit, or where he thought it was. The dust still clouded his vision. He didn’t know where they were in the clearing. All around them the sounds of a fierce battle was heard. No direction seemed safe. He turned toward the green-haired general.

“Do you know the way out? I can’t see a thing!” Just as Isan was about to answer, a gust of wind blew past them. A path free of dust appeared before them, leading to the gates. The King shared a puzzled look with Isan. The general shook his head.

“Don’t question it! Let’s go!” Isan forcefully turned his King toward the exit and then started pushing him toward it. All the while, the King’s eyes searched for the black-haired beauty. Seeing her dancing in the sky to avoid the twin swords Aika now wielded.

His eyes watched the crimson-eyed beauty. He saw the strain on her face every time she dodged. He also noticed that she was not using any magic, except flying. All she was doing was weaving out of the way of the glowing blades.

“Haruo! Let’s go!” Isan yelled. The King, now known as Haruo, turned toward the other man.

“We have to help her!” Isan looked at his King in shock, not believing his ears.

“What?!” Haruo rounded on his general, child still tucked into his arms.

“We have to help the red-eyed demon! She’s losing!”

“Are you insane?! We have to leave!”

“She saved my daughter! We can’t just leave her here!”

“We aren’t strong enough to help her! That other demon is powerful. There is no way we can beat it! The only way we can help her, is by getting out of her way!”

“But- “Haruo was interrupted by an ear-splitting shriek. Looking over, the humans saw Misa laying on the ground, not moving. The dust had completely disappeared. Red stained the ground around the limp body as black streams of hair covered the fragile skin. A bandaged foot slammed into her shoulder, making her scream again. Aika was seen standing over her, smirking.

“That is what you get when you help other people. I always told you helping would get you killed.” Taking the foot off the other woman, she bent down until her head was about a foot from the bleeding woman’s face.

“You should have heeded my warning.” Aika smirked, her eyes gleaming with a combination of malice and mischief.

“Any last words?” Coughing, Misa lifted her head so she could look straight into her opponent’s eyes.

“You should have heeded mine.” In the blink of an eye, Misa thrust her hand through Aika’s stomach.

The red-haired demon screamed and jumped away from the other woman. Once dirty hands were now stained red with her own blood as she tried to stop it from flowing. Green orbs narrowed with hatred at the demon in front of her.

“You bitch! You’ll pay for that!”

“Like I haven’t heard that before!” With a furious shriek, Aika jumped into the sky, orbs of light sprouting from her outstretched hands. They kept going until the lights were spread out over the town.

“You want to save people?! Then save them from this!” The orbs of lights turned into arrows that threatened to destroy the, still evacuating, village.

“No!” Misa screamed as the arrows began their descent.

Why?

Remember to look for that random word! This month: Error

How is she that beautiful? I’ve never seen anyone that pretty.

He watched her, immobilized by the sheer image of the dark-haired demon.  Nothing else mattered as he stared. Not his subjects trying to get him to move. Not the smell of smoke from buildings that were on fire. It was as if time had stopped. All was quiet in the small clearing.

Until it wasn’t. She had suddenly disappeared from his sight, while another explosion kicked off where she once stood.

The demons had started fighting again. Only this time, they had decided to fight in the air. They were so fast that only lights from their attacks were seen by the humans. Red and bright green clashed in the sky.

“Sire! We must get out of here!” Isan was trying to get the King to snap out of his daze. He shook his shoulder and yelled in his ear, but nothing was working. Finally, he decided to just slap him in the face.

“Ow! What was that for?!” The King yelled at his general. Isan glared at him and pulled him from his sitting position.

“We must get out of here! This is no time to be star-struck!” Isan continued to, once again, pull his King along.

The sound of gravel being crushed behind them made the two remaining humans turn their heads toward it.

They saw the black-haired demon, Misa, lying on the ground, straining to get up. Coughing, Misa could barely get her arms to work. Blood stained the ground around her.

“We have to help her!” The King shouted. He started to go back to her, but was stopped by an arm around his shoulders.

“No! We must go! They will kill us!” Isan was straining to stop his King. His muscled arm was bulging by the sheer strength of his King’s struggling.

“Isan, let me go!”

“No!” While they were busy arguing, Misa had managed to sit up. She was, once again, glaring up at the other demon in the sky.

“Why do you bother with me? Why can’t you just leave me alone, Aika?  What have I done wrong?” The scarlet haired demon, now known as Aika, smirked.

“Because you’re a nuisance. You’re too powerful and too independent. If you would agree to work for the royal family, we wouldn’t be trying to kill you.”

Small bursts of flames erupted from Misa’s body. She slowly stood, her hair whipping around her from the power she was now emitting. Crimson orbs glowed fiercely as she glared at Aika.

“That will never happen. I would rather die, then work for those pompous idiots!” With that said, Misa lunged into the other demon. She wrapped her arms around the other woman, letting her burning flames lick at Aika’s flesh. As both demons plummeted toward the earth, Aika shrieked in pain.

The red-head thought fast and burst her power from her body, throwing Misa off of her. Aika slammed into the side of a small tower, while Misa crashed into the middle of the small clearing at the exit of the castle. She heard Aika give a frustrated scream and dodged a blow to the head.

“Stop fighting already! You have nothing to live for! Why do you even care if you die?!” Aika screamed.

“Why do you care if I live?! I’ve never hurt anyone from the kingdom or any villages! I’ve never stolen anything but food and that was when I was an abandoned child! I have done nothing to deserve the treatment that I get! I’ve seen other demons steal, pillage, and kill, but you don’t care about them! Why me?! It can’t be just because I am powerful! I’m sure there are more powerful demons out there then I! There has to be another reason!” Misa punched the air in front of her, sending a burst of fire towards Aika. She dodged it, but did not expect the second and third bursts. They hit her dead on, causing her to roll back into the castle’s stone wall.

Misa limped over to her, her side still bleeding profusely. Drops of crimson splattered the ground around her as she stared at the glaring woman on the ground.

“Why are you after me?” Aika seemed to think for a bit, before she opened her mouth. But before a sound left her lips, she was interrupted by a small voice.

“Daddy!” Both demons looked over to the door of the castle, seeing a small human girl dashing towards her father on the other side of the clearing.

“Akemi? Why are you here? You’re not supposed to be here!” The King shouted as he frantically ran to meet her. The general followed, but they were not fast enough.

As the humans started to run to the child, for that split second the demons knew what was going to happen next. Misa’s eyes widened as she turned back to a smirking Aika.

“Bye-bye kid.” The black-haired demon whipped around to see a glowing green arrow above the child’s head.

“Noooooo!” Misa screamed as ran for the child. The humans were once again pushed back from the explosion. The King stared at the dust cloud that his daughter was in.

“Akemi?” He whispered, but no answer came.

“Akemi?!” This time called out. Still no answer.

“AKEMI?!”

Crash

So this turned out longer than I expected. I don’t think future posts will be as long, but who knows! I apologize if there are any mistakes. I do use Word, but sometimes it does not like me. 

Now remember to look for that random word! If you don’t know about it, tap or click on the random word page to find out what it is!

 

“Sire!” A guard pushed the thick wooden doors open. Panting, he hunched over and grabbed his knees. The throne room grew quiet, as heads turned to peer at the man.

“What is going on?” A booming voice sounded from the man in the throne chair. Another man ran over to the out of breath guard.

“Are you alright?” He asked. The guard held up a hand, signaling them to wait. After a moment, the man stood up fully and addressed his King.

“Sire, there are demons fighting each other on the boarder! Powerful ones! We have already started evacuating the villages around the boarder!” The King stood up abruptly, his expression grave.

“How long did it take you to get here?” The King started making his way to the guard.

“About half an hour. I had the fastest horse I could get at the time.”

“Good. It will take a while for them to get to here. Caim!” Scraggly, shoulder-length chestnut hair whipped around as the King turned toward a man with short, raven hair and dark stubble dusting his face. Serious midnight black eyes looked at the King, already knowing what was going to be said.

“Let me guess, secure the town and make sure the demons do not get inside?” His deep voice bellowed out. The King gave a knowing smile.

“Exactly. You always know what I’m going to say. That’s why you are the best military general.” Caim gave a small nod back.

“I know. Now stay here, in case they make it into- “He was cut off by the sound of an explosion. All heads turned towards the noise.

“What was that?” The King started to run for the doors, his subjects not far behind.

Outside on a large veranda, they saw several smoking buildings on the outskirts of town. A long patch of trees beyond the buildings seemed to have disappeared.

“What-?” A house disappeared in a puff of smoke or dust. They couldn’t be sure which it was. A small figure appeared in the sky. It looked human, but they knew it wasn’t. Humans didn’t float.

“The demon?!” A well-muscled green-haired man turned toward the guard that had told them of the attack.

“I though you said that they were half an hour behind you?!” He asked.

“Th-They were! They must have flown here! I said they seemed powerful!”

“Well now what?! At this rate, they will level the town!” The King exclaimed. Caim stepped in front of him, a hand on his sword.

“We will have to fight them. I will mobilize the soldiers.” Just as he was about to run away, the green- haired man jumped in front of him.

“Wait! You can’t fight them! It will be suicide!” Caim scowled at the man.

“Then what do you want us to do, Isan?! We must act quickly! People are dying as we speak!”

“We will evacuate the city! That is the only solution! We have barriers for a reason!”

“Isan is right, Caim. The mages have already started to put up the barriers. We must evacuate.” The King spoke up, his voice holding no room for arguments. As the King spoke, spheres of clear blue light decorated the town below. Debris was seen bouncing off of them.

“See? They are working.” Caim clenched his fists at his sides, the knuckles turning white.

“Fine. Then I shall start instructing soldiers to help with the retreat.” As he made to walk away, a hand clapped down on his shoulder, stopping him. He turned to see his King smiling at him.

“If it were any other situation I would have fought them head on. But the people come first. Fighting would only be a waste of lives. You are strong and could take them on, but it’s not worth it. You understand, right?” Caim’s once scowling face seemed to become emotionless again. He nodded.

“Yes. I know. It just hurts to retreat. Now I must go.” The King returned his nod with his own and let go of the other man’s shoulder. Caim ran off through the front gate, already barking orders to the men waiting outside.

Another explosion shook the ground underneath the castle. A dust cloud was seen just below them, where the market was located.

“How are they getting past the barriers?!” The King shouted. The crowd watched as the attacks the demons used went right past the spheres and crashed into the buildings.

“I don’t know. The debris is still bouncing off, but their magic seems to be going right through. I’ve never seen anything like it.” Isan commented.

“We need to move everyone out quicker! I will go and help!” The guard ran off through the gates once more.

“Sire, we must go too! It isn’t safe here!” The lime haired man exclaimed, pulling his liege’s arm, who seemed to be frozen in place. His eyes wide as he saw the destruction of his town.

“They’re destroying everything. And we can’t do anything to stop it.” He whispered to himself. Joyous laughing could be heard as something crashed into a nearby tower. An anguished scream soon followed it.

“We have to leave!” Isan forcibly pulled the King toward the front gates. The King shook his head, snapping out of his shock. He ran with his green-haired general, dodging any wayward rocks.

Thank god Akemi is on a trip. The King thought to himself.

They were almost to the exit, when something crashed in front of them. They were pushed back by the impact and fell to the ground behind them. More laughter could be heard in the sky, as the cloud of dust cleared.

The humans looked up at the female figure floating in the sky. Her bright red hair flowed around her, reaching her hips. Emerald eyes were lit with joy, as she stared at the other demon that had fallen.

“Heh, not very strong today, huh? Getting tired already, Miiiiiiiisa?” The woman’s whole upper body arched backward, as she cackled joyously.

Coughing could be heard coming from the dust cloud, along with sounds of dirt shifting. The humans watched as the dust cleared in an instant.

Standing in the middle of a small crater was another woman, her form slumped over but still standing. Her head was tilted toward the other demon, long black hair seeming to reach to her ankles. A hand clutched at her side, blood flowing through it. Fiery red eyes seemed to glow as they glared at the demon woman still cackling in the air.

Meanwhile, the humans were watching what would happen next. Except the King.

His eyes were locked onto the beautiful woman in the crater. Time seemed to slow down for him, as he looked at her. His eyes were wide and his mouth was dropped open. Heart thumping in his chest, he only had one thought in his mind.

Beautiful.

I hope you guys liked this post. Again, sorry for all the mistakes.

Prologue

Here we go guys! The prologue! Now it’s a very depressing start, but I assure you it has some cute and funny moments in later posts.

Trees bent and creaked as harsh wind swept across a dark forest. Animals rustled through the fallen leaves, searching for food and shelter. The moon shone bright, sweeping away some of the surrounding darkness. Shadows consumed the small figure slowly walking through a batch of thick trees. Long dark hair seemed to cover the young girl’s delicate appearance. Only one feature shone through the messy tresses. Her bright ruby red eyes seemed to glow in the night, scaring any animals or creatures that happened upon her. Frightened eyes shifted around, scanning the area for something to pop out at her. She slowly walked into a small grassy clearing.

“Mummy? Daddy? Where are you?” Small, calloused fingers clasped together at her chest.

“Daddy? Mummy? Why did you leave me here? I was a good girl. I didn’t do anything bad! I did all my chores! I didn’t talk back! I finished everything on my plate! Why did you leave me here? What did I do?” The little girl continued walking until her foot caught on a root. Yelping, she tumbled down onto the damp grass. Shaking shoulders were seen by a passing squirrel. Sobbing followed soon after.

“Why? What did I do? I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Please come back. Please, I’ll do better. I’ll be the best person ever. Please just come back! Mummy! Daddy!” She curled into a little ball and cried. A drop of rain crashed onto her shaking back. A second. Then it started to pour and she didn’t move. Animals scampered to find shelter, while the girl cried. After what seemed like hours to the tiny child, the sobbing was reduced to hiccups. She sat up and gazed into the sky. The evidence of her tears washed away by the rain.

“Why does everyone hate me? I did everything they said. I was a good girl. Am a good girl. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Please. Just come back, Mummy. I love you. Please Mummy. I swear I’ll do better. You and Daddy won’t have to do a thing. I’ll do everything. Just please don’t throw me away. I’m sorry.” Her head dropped down to look at the wet grass in front of her, hoping for her mother and father to show up.

But no one came. She sat there for hours. Now the rain had stopped and the moon was out. The little girl’s head tilted up, once again, to peer into the black sky. Expressionless eyes followed a passing cloud.

“Where are they? Why did they leave me here? How could they leave me here all alone? They always told me that the forest was dangerous. Did they…Did they do it on purpose? They left me here to die? But why? I didn’t do anything! Why did they leave me here?!” The little girl screamed into the sky. Her once expressionless eyes, glowing with rage. She stood up, hands clenched at her sides.

“I swear I’ll find them. Mummy. Daddy. I’ll find you and ask you. I’ll ask you why you abandoned me. Why you left me to die in this forest. I did everything! I listened to you, even when I thought it was wrong! I’ll find you and make you pay! I swear it! The next time you see me, I’ll kick your butt! I’ll become strong and great! No guards will be able to protect you! You hear me?! I swear it!” She screamed into the knight sky.

Ebony tresses flowed behind her as she pushed on into the forest, not knowing what path lies ahead.

 

Hello world!

 

Hi everyone! To get things started I would like to tell you about the plot.

First and foremost, I would like to say that I have no idea how long or how this story even ends. As I write, the ideas just pop into my head. So, I could plan it all out the night before, then suddenly change what happens in that post at the last minute! So be aware that not even the author knows where the story is going! But don’t fret, because that’s the fun part! Now on to the synopsis!

Nothing could prepare the small human kingdom for this. A demon crashed into their lives, a special demon, but they did not know that. Welcoming the she-demon into their kingdom would forever change the lives of many. For a King and his daughter, it would change for the better. Or will it? No one had any idea what the outcome of letting this rare demon stay would have for the future. They had hoped she would protect them from other demon attacks. But who ever said that she would stay? Or that she wasn’t the cause of the attacks?

I am bad at summaries, so if this confuses anyone, I apologize. Tell me and I will try to make it clearer.

I hope that you will enjoy reading this story and give it a change. Thank you for reading this far!
