My eyes fluttered open and daylight filled my gaze. I had a
feeling that today is going to be a good day. A small smile
graced my features. A loud alarm going off shoot me out of my
thoughts of peaceful mornings. I take that back maybe today isn't
going to be so great after all. I quickly got out of bed and ran
to the source of the noise. The kitchen. I rushed through the
door expecting to see a fire. But no. All I see is Erik looking
sadly into a frying pan. I took a deep breath and rounded up the
courage to ask what was wrong.
"It burned." He said still staring at the pan.
"Huh? What burned?" I walked over to where he stood and took a
good look at the 'food' that he tried to cook.
"Oh I see… Wait a minute how the heck do you burn eggs this
"I don't know, I only left them there a few minutes to cook."
"and how long is a few minutes?"
"around 15 maybe 20."
"god! No wonder there burned! Eggs only take 5 minutes to cook 10
at the most!
"Well I didn't know that." A loud growling sound echoed through
"What do you think?"
"I think you should move out of my way so I can cook us something
edible." I pushed him aside as I took the pan and through the
"Yeah, Yeah, just make it quick before I die of starvation."
"Hey. Don't rush me be lucky I'm cooking you anything."
After about 10 minutes of cooking I brought both of our plates
over to the table. "There, is that better?" The meal I cooked
consisted of Half a plate of eggs and 2 hash browns.
"Yes!" I didn't even have time to set the plate down and he was
already stuffing his face. I took my seat across the small table
and started eating my own meal, but not nearly as fast. When I
was about half way done my breakfast I heard a large sigh of
relief come from Erik.
"Yup. So when do we go to work?" he asked while getting up to set
his plate in the sink.
"We? You mean when do I go to work. You don't work there."
"I'm your partner aren't I, so that means we both work at the
same place. I think we should get a job." He said not really
"No that's out of the question, we don't even know each other's
abilities yet. How do you expect use to go out on a mission
"It would help use to understand our abilities better if we saw
what both of use could do first hand."
"Yeah but did you ever ounce think that this plan of yours could
go terribly wrong and we could both end up dead?"
"No, because you got me to protect you." He replied with a smirk.
"Ha. More like the other way around." I said with a confident
smile. and with a word our bet had been set. I would show him
just how strong I was.
The ride to the company was short and silent. No words were
exchanged. We were both thinking about what would happen later
that day. Then, we arrived at Lucifer. The building itself looks
as if it could touch the sky. Erik and I entered through the
large glass double doors and made our way to the front desk. we
must had attracted a lot of attention, because everyone's eyes
seemed to follow us across the room. I was then rudely awoken
from my thoughts by someone's loud yelling.
"Kayla! Hello earth to Kayla!" I moved my gaze towards the sound.
My eyes met with those of the front desk secretary, and I was
genuinely surprised at who it was. "Rebecca? What are you doing
working the front desk?"
"It's punishment for setting another building on fire while out
on an mission. But enough about me, who is your friend?" Her
large green eyes stared at Erik hoping he would introduce himself
but he made no move to do so.
"This is Erik Cross my new partner, but anyway getting back on
subject I would like a mission." I took a side glance at Erik,
his body looked tense and his gaze was unmoving.
"Of course, here give me a minute. Okay so you already have a
mission on file and it has to do with a cavern of wild demons
going on a murdering frenzy, sound good enough for you?" She
asked looking up from her computer.
"Yup that's good I'll take it. See you later Becca." I said
starting to walk away and waving over my shoulder. I stepped out
of the building looking back to make sure that Erik had followed.
He had, and he was a step behind me none the less. "Happy now we
got a mission."
"Ecstatic." He said, his voice flat. "That place smells like
death. It's sickening." His face grim while he spoke.
"Really? I think it kind of smells like flowers." I gave him a
teasing smile. Erik just looked at me and gave an over dramatic
