Chapter One: Avalon: Perfection
Los Angeles has this strange beauty to it at nighttime, with the
colorful lights and the moving people. Avalon loved it here,
everything was so wonderful. She lived here for as long as she
can remember; she left the City of Angels a long time ago. Being
the Angel of perfection was a blessing and a curse wrapped into
one. Everything had to be perfect; nothing out of place, if it
wasn't it would consume her. She wouldn't be able to think about
anything else, she would spend days, months even years making
sure it was one hundred percent perfect. She could never find
love; nobody seemed to meet her expectations and those few who
did was never able to handle her constant need for perfection.
Avalon used to hide away from the world; she was afraid she
wouldn't be able to perfect the world's imperfections but that
wasn't how it worked, not in this world anyway. She could walk
away from something quite easily as long as she didn't get too
involved otherwise her whole life depended on it. She had it
better than a lot of the other Angels; some will actually die if
they do not feel as if they succeeded in their tasks. Each Angel
has a tattoo; they get them after they are born. It act's like a
birth certificate in the City, any Angel can access your basic
information if they themselves have a tattoo and is using it for
good. Those that attempt it for evil will die; they have lost
their purity. Her mother had her tattoo done on her right hand; a
beautiful star and when another Angel looks at it, it begins
sparkling. The best part of being an Angel is being able to sense
that another Angel is around. It's like an electric shock; all
Angels can feel chemistry towards each other which is why she
left. She never really knew if someone really loved her or if it
was just that little spark that made it seem like that. Avalon
wanted love, true love; she would find it and it would be
perfect. Nell was the only Angel is knows, She met her a few
years after moving here; she worked for the Label she now owns.
Nell is the Angel of beauty; it made sense to keep her as the
face; any man or woman couldn't resist her beauty. Nell loved the
attention, she basked in it; if someone didn't acknowledge her
beauty she feels a pain only a demon would understand. She was
cursed for being beautiful by the Gods because she had willingly
rejected him, so anyone who rejected her or didn't tell her how
beautiful she was she got to feel the pain the demons were
condemned to feel every time t hey didn't listen. But she has yet
to feel that excruciating pain; no one had ever rejected her or
never said she wasn't pretty. Avalon tells her she is beautiful
every time they are together, not because she has to but because
she wouldn't want to lose such an amazing friend. Since
perfection and beauty usually go hand In hand with each other it
was easy to be around the other. It was the perfect fit; both
enjoy each other's company as well. Speaking of Nell, wondering
what is taking her so long; they had plans to go out tonight.
They decided to head up to the mountains; it was a full moon and
since Los Angeles doesn't have that beauty of peace and serenity
Nell so desperately wanted they figured they'd head over there.
Glancing in the mirror she saw one of the prettiest images
staring back; her looks had been one thing she felt the need to
perfect. Her beautiful long gold hair and flawless ice blue eyes.
Yes she was the definition of perfect. Tonight she chose a pair
of black tights, a white long sleeved shirt with a black vest and
a pair of fur winter boots. In that moment she heard a pop,
turning around she faced such a beautiful creature. Nell stood
staring at her with piercing grey eyes and a smile that would
make anyone melt.
"Ready?" she asked. Avalon nodded and wrapped her hand tightly
around Nell's wrist. In one second they stood upon the mountains.
Looking down, the moon shining on the water, making it twinkle
ever so beautifully; the air was cool, the wind felt like a slap
in the face. Taking a deep breathe Avalon turned and headed to
the Cabin. She knew that Nell needed to take it all in by
herself, just adds to the beauty; being alone with nothing but
the sound of the night surrounding you. Standing by the fire she
could feel something, someone is out there. Not really sure if
it's a human or not but there is no possible way it could be
another Angel, she'd be able to feel that pull, the chemistry.
Worried about Nell she ran back out only to find her staring at
the night, taking a breath of relief she moved to her side.
"Nell, someone's here, I can feel it. Come to the Cabin, we'll be
safe." Taking her by the elbow, she guided her to the Cabin.
They'd have to spend the night; if any one saw anything out of
the ordinary they might try to harm them. Once they were safely
inside Nell finally broke out of her trance; when she finds
something with such a beauty, it consumes her. Her body becomes
relaxed and she grows stronger; it's a blessing but also a curse.
If she find's something with an impossibly beautiful sight she
goes into a trance and she could be in left in it for eternity.
The trance is why she picked this place; to her it is only
beautiful when night has fallen. It is also the reason she comes
with Nell; if something were to happen she would be there to pull
her out of it.
"Sorry. I know I can feel it too; it's not an Angel though. It
could be a human; they come out here a lot during the summer.
Something about the beauty of the snow; the way it sparkles when
the sun hits it."
"I don't think so. I have this fire burning in me. Like a sign;
maybe it means danger?"
"I once heard when an Angel feels the burning fire it means one
of two things. Number one they have found love or two a demon has
come." Taking a minute to process what was just said, Avalon knew
it couldn't be love; no one came close to her standards, except
for Kian. Although he was human he was such a beautiful and
perfect man; she had fallen head over heels for him. He had
purposed to her and was to be married six months after but she
had lost him when he had gotten sick. After that no body has ever
compared to him, hasn't even come close. He was her lover, her
everything. Taking a deep breathe, she faced the fire. Hoping to
remove him from her mind; she didn't like remembering.
"It couldn't be a demon, could it? They've been in isolation for
such a long time. Aren't they sentenced for Eternity?"
"Yes, but they have ways out; most can flash out. Avalon there
really isn't anything to be worried about. We've been on the same
planet as them for such a long time, it's not as if a war is
about to break out."
She knew Nell was right but she couldn't help but to feel like
something was about to happen, something that could change
everything forever. Saying goodnight to Nell she climbed in bed
and closed her eyes.
Waking up, Avalon went to the kitchen; it was time to get the day
started. Making breakfast for her and Nell; making sure
everything was set up perfectly. Plates had to line up with the
cups which had to line up with the silverware and the silverware
had to be set on the napkin in a certain way. Taking a step back
to admire her work, smiling because she knew she got it right.
"Everything looks so wonderful Ava, like always such perfection,"
Nell said, moving to stand beside her and admire the beauty of
the table setting.
It felt good to have someone acknowledge her work, although she
never needs to hear it always made her smile when people did.
"Thank you, my beauty."
Nell sat in the chair that faced the sliding doors; it's so she
can enjoy the morning scenery. It wasn't the beauty that could
send her in a trance but it was pretty. Avalon enjoyed the beauty
of it; it was peaceful, the best part about her and Nell is they
don't need to talk, the silence says so much. Avalon cleaned
everything up; making sure everything was placed nicely into
their rightful places before grabbing her jacket and heading out
the door. She loved going for walks up here, the sound of the
snow crunching beneath her feet relaxed her in a way. The snow
sparking in the sun's light, the tree's had been glazed with a
blanket of white snow, making the sight even more breath taking;
for her this was magnificent but to Nell it was just pretty.
Nothing has ever felt more perfect, being here with Nell. It was
right; nothing could ruin this moment. Or so she thought; there
stood the most magnificent creature. He was tall, with such
masculinity. His beautiful green eyes burned into her as if he
could see her soul, his facial expression held a look of disgust
as if he didn't like what he saw when he looked at her. He leaned
against the tree, not taking his eyes off of her. Avalon glanced
over him, his upper body exposed to the world, he was a brown
beauty. He looked almost fairylike; majestic and serene, like
nothing you have ever seen. He took her breathe away. It was like
he was suffocating her, she couldn't take a breath; her heart was
pounding so fast she thought it'd beat right out of her. She
started feeling weak, her body seemed to be failing her and she
didn't enjoy the feeling of no control. This has never happened,
looking up at him their eyes locked and in that moment she knew
exactly what he was; he was danger. The last thing she saw was
his unforgettable green eyes; when she woke up she was back in
the cabin. Nell must've found her when she went for her morning
walk, they normally to in different directions so they can have
some time to themselves. Carefully sitting up she looked around
for Nell who wasn't anywhere around her; getting up she ended to
the shower. She needed to clear her head and the only way to that
is by distracting herself by perfecting herself. Standing under
the water, she closed her eyes; those green eyes haunted her.
There was something about him she just couldn't figure out what
that was exactly. What happened out there? Does he have some
controlling power or something? He was so beautiful, the way his
pants hugged his body; showing every inch of him. Was that what
made her feel so hot? Just the thought disgusted her; was that
why he looked at her like he did? Was he disgusted by how she
reacted to his body? How else was she supposed to react? She just
wanted to forget him. Getting out of the shower she grabbed her
make up bag, carefully taken everything out and lining them up in
a straight line. Starting with the cover up, apply it slowly.
Making sure she doesn't screw it up then she applied a perfect
black line of eyeliner under each eye, finishing up with mascara.
Glancing at her work, she did such a wonderful job; looking great
as always. Putting on a white sundress that hugged her breasts
and flowed down to her thighs, it was her favorite dress; it made
her feel like perfection. Walking towards the edge of the
mountain she saw Nell sitting on a rock, she usually sat there
for hours just staring out at the world but today she was looking
at her fingers. Taking the spot next to her Avalon reached over
taking her hand into hers.
"What is it love?" Avalon asked, looking out at the water.
"When I found you lying there, I stopped seeing this place as
beautiful. All I can see is your body laying there; still as the
"Nell, my beautiful Nell this place is such a gorgeous sight.
What happened out in the woods had nothing to do with what you
"What did happen?"
"Remember that feeling we had? I saw him; he was such a breath
taking sight. I couldn't concentrate on anything; when I looked
into his eyes I saw it, I saw his demon. Not well enough to know
what he is possessed by but enough to know he is one. He made me
feel hot, and weak; I couldn't breath. I guess I passed out."
"Hmm, Ava you should have been more careful. You know looking
into his eyes only brings trouble; he has access to your
whereabouts now. He could follow you, hurt you, and even kill
"You yourself said we have nothing to worry about, maybe he
thought I was an enemy. I will be fine Nellina, don't worry."
"Ugh, you're using my full name now?"
Giving Nell a little nudge before grabbing her wrist; it was
time to go back home. Being flashed always made her feel queasy.
She had a choice of what she wanted; it was between flashing and
insight. Each Angel is offered a choice when they become adults;
Avalon never enjoyed flashing so she chose insight. It became
very useful when she first came into the "real" world; she was
able to understand how humans worked quick enough to perfect it
all within the first month. Nell chose flashing because that way
she could flash to the most breathtaking places and not worry
about having to pay for every trip. It was just convenient. One
of the Angels has the power to enter dreams; they could be human,
Angel, Demon or even a God. She was the only one ever given that
choice, but for her it was the only way to interact with people;
to help. Never once has she used it for evil; that's probably why
she was given it. But no one really knows. Nell had left a few
hours ago; she had a Vogue shoot to do; leaving Avalon to be
alone. Her mind kept going back the demon with mesmerizing eyes;
in all her life she has never met a demon or really any other
Angel, most of them go to quiet, secluded areas. Not her she
wanted to experience life for what it is; joyful, beautiful and
in her eyes perfect. She didn't know what to do, or even how to
react; he acted as if she was the plague. She'd make him see how
perfect she was; even if it ended in her death. She didn't care,
it was a challenge and she was ready to purse it. Besides she
wanted to know why he hated her so much; he doesn't even know
her. Maybe she can find out what his demon is, and how he came to
be cursed. She heard multiple legends; she would love to figure
out the truth. She would figure it out; she had to now that she
has set her mind to it and she won't stop, not until everything
makes perfect sense. He'd have to deal with it; whether he wanted
her around or not, she'd fight. She closed her eyes and a smile
came across her perfect lips; she'd win and he would see her as
perfect. She felt him again, his eyes burning into her; her blood
was getting hot again. This time she'd be tough and not faint,
this time she'll offer the challenge. Walking out to the balcony
she saw him, standing barefoot in the sand. This time he was
wearing a buttoned up shirt although the top three were undone.
He must love showing off that body of his; he must take pride in
it. In which he should it's too die for; and those eyes, such
beauty. Avalon shuddered, focusing she looked at him directly in
the eye; holding his gaze. She refused to back down, she couldn't
faint again; she needed this. She needed truth, she needed
answers, and she needed him. No, that can't be it, she doesn't
need him; he's a demon. He's dangerous, harmful, and bad for her.
Yes that's what he was, bad for her; shed make it known that he
was a quest and that is all. Holding her gaze just as hard and
cold as his; a slow half assed smile came across his face. Her
heart melted; she could feel her whole body relax, it was such a
perfect moment. But this wasn't the time, he wasn't the one and
she wasn't about to break the rules. She hardened her gaze,
frowning at him. He moved closer to her, taking small steps at
first then it all became a blur and when she was able to fix her
eyes he stood right in front of her. She could feel his breath,
hear his heartbeat, and she couldn't help but to forget
everything. The way his body looked, it was a beautiful brown.
Not like a dark brown either but a golden brown; his sea green
eyes were like diamonds. Shining so bright, he looked at her like
no other has ever before. Her knees were getting weaker, praying
to the Gods for strength. She couldn't fall, not here; not in
front of him that'd only make her look weaker than she really
was. That smile was so breath taking; she couldn't stop herself.
Her knees buckled and she was quick to fall. He moved fast,
wrapping his muscular arm around her waist; pulling her close to
his chest he jumped off the balcony and ran off into the dark
Chapter 2: Avalon: Anger.
She woke up to a cement room, she couldn't focus; everything was
far from perfect. Her whole life is unbalanced; she couldn't help
but to worry about Nell, she'd need to an escape soon. LA was
only beautiful once a year and that day already past. Taking a
deep breath she began perfecting this hell of a place. She began
with the bed, and then moved throughout the room. Once she was
finished she sat on the bed, careful not to wrinkle the sheets.
She sat there for what seemed like forever when a door opened and
the magnificent man stepped in; without saying a word he reached
for her hand. Pulling her behind him, he led her out of the room
and into a huge living room. There were black leather couches and
a giant television screen with multiple gaming devices. He must
have no life, no friends, and n o lover. She almost felt bad for
him, almost; maybe if he didn't kidnap her she would. He stood
against the door way staring at her like he knew her, did he? Has
he been spying on her? She just wanted out, wanted her life back.
She never even noticed that she went around the room
straightening objects that were out of place, or replacing
objects to make it look better. She looked out the window and saw
such a stunning sight; the balcony over looked a lake, beautiful
clear blue water. She could literally see the rocks and all the
fish; it was something Nell would love to see, if she ever got to
see her again.
"What do you want from me?" Avalon asked, getting straight to the
point. He walked towards her stopping just an inch away. "What
are you? You aren't human, I figured that much out. Ever since
that night in the mountains I've been thinking about it and I
just, I can't seem to find any answers," he replied.
"I know what you are; you're nothing but a demon. A dangerous and
good for nothing demon; I know you are all bad people sorry I
"Dangerous? I suppose you could say that. Good for nothing? Now
that's a little bit harsh, don't you think? I have done a lot of
good for this place. If it wasn't for me they wouldn't have been
able to re-build this place after it was attacked. So let's try
this again, what are you? Before you say anything stupid or smart
assed remember I can control if you live or die."
"I don't care. Kill me if that's what you want, obviously it's
better than being alone with you for the rest of my life."
He looked as if he was about to hit her, when another man
"Man what's with the broad?" he asked. This man was almost as
beautiful; he had shaggy blond hair that feel in his eyes, he had
these blue eyes that were so cold they could freeze someone in
their place but they were nonetheless beautiful. He was gorgeous,
his body was muscular and his soft white skin. Yes he was
"Liam, it's nice to have you home. Where's your lover?"
"She's around, think she went for a shower. So who's the chick?"
"Fuck if I know; she's determined to remain silent and press my
Liam looked at her and smiled a cruel smile "I'll give it a go."
A cruel laugh escaped from his mouth; making the other one smile
and shake his head. Liam moved closer to her, stopping literally
an inch from her face. She could smell his minty breath; just the
smell was enough to make her end spin and heart race. Running his
hand across her face, he smiled. "Your not human, and your no
demon so what are you?" she looked at him, her eyes found his and
in that moment she knew; he was the demon of lies and had the
power to get the truth out of anyone. Mortal or immortal; she was
screwed. Looking down "I'm an angel," she whispered loud enough
for the both to hear her. Liam took a step back and drew a
breath. "Shit" was the only response he could think of. Looking
over at his friend Liam shook his head "Dude, what the fuck we
going to do now? She can't leave, not now; she just can't be
"She'll have to stay here. We'll set her up in the other room."
"Nah man, she'll have to stay in the cell."
"No, we will not make her a prisoner; well we won't treat her as
She looked at them; they expected her to stay here? They wanted
to keep her as their prisoner? No this wouldn't do, she wouldn't
"Come with me woman," the other one said.
"No, not until I learn your name."
"Cason, that's my name."
She smiled; it was a beautiful name for a beautiful man. "Well
I'm Avalon, so you can stop calling me woman."
He looked at her and for a second he thought he had seen her
smile, but when he looked again her face was back to being hard.
He grabbed her by the wrist, she kept trying to get out of his
grip but he was definitely stronger than her.
"Let me go dammit; I'm not going to run." He let her go and
headed up the stairs. She wanted to be mad, to hate him, to try
and escape but there was something about him; she only wished
she'd know why. Demons and angels can't possible be together'; it
just doesn't work like that, it couldn't work like that. Cason
led her to a room that was bigger than pretty much her whole
house; everything was so clean, so together. It really was
perfect and she could live with it; at least for now anyways.
"This is your room; you have your own bathroom. You can do as you
please, well except for leave. At least until we can figure out a
way to fix this mess."
"Cason, wait." He looked stressed, almost consumed by it. She
wanted to touch him, pull him close and kiss him. To feel his
body, to feel his hands touch her; make her melt.
"What happened to you? Why did you get cursed?
"That is not your business; understand this now Avalon, we will
not speak of my curse, my demon or my life. In fact we will not
speak at all."
Avalon felt as if she had been slapped in the face, she turned
around just as the tears began to fall. Moving to the bed she
laid down; yes this would be a nightmare; she already felt
trapped. She closed her eyes and saw a gorgeous woman, stood
there with such poise and grace, her brown hair fell to her
shoulders, and her eyes were big and brown. She wore a stunning
red dress that fell to her knees. Avalon had never seen her
before, not in her life. Not even in the City Of Angels but she
knew that's what she was; her tattoo began sparkling.
"You're an angel?"
"Of course, my name is Laney."
"I'm Avalon. Why are you here?"
Laney moved closer, taking her hand in hers. "Follow me my
sweets, we have a lot to see." Avalon was confused but still felt
obligated to follow, after all Angels can't use their gifts for
evil or selfish intentions that may result in the death of
others. "Avalon, I need you to know who I am and why I'm here but
first you have to make a promise."
"Ok, I'm a little confused. Lay it on me; I'm sure this promise
can't be too difficult."
"You have to learn to accept and forgive Liam and Cason; they may
be demons but everyone deserves to be forgiven especially those
with damned souls. You need to promise to never leave, and to
always be there for Cason."
"I can't promise I won't leave, that place is hell."
"If they release you, you may be free. But Cason needs you, he
needs love. He will be the one for you so please take the time to
try. Give him as many chances as he needs. My love he will open
up to you, you'll know his secrets. Give it time."
"Fine, I promise I won't leave. I promise to always be there and
do as I can to help. But I guarantee he and I will never be
together. He is a demon and I am an Angel. I crave perfection and
he is far from that."
"You'll see princess."
Laney moved forward, taking Avalon's hand they flashed out and
ended up at the cabin she and Nell had stayed just a few days
"Why are we here Laney?"
"I want you to see what happened that night between the two of
you; you need to understand why he was there when you were. But
before any of that, we will go get warm and I will tell you
everything about me that is needed to be known."
Avalon unlocked the door, and went to the kitchen to make them
hot chocolate. She brought in the drinks as Laney was getting the
fire started; taking a sit in her favorite chair she waited for
Laney to begin. "I am the Angel of forgiveness and I was called
here to make sure you understand how important Cason really is.
He may be a demon but not by choice, he has a big heart and is
capable of being perfect. He cares for you; I know that sounds
weird because of recent events."
'You believe everyone should be forgiven even those that do
wrong? How can you forgive those who have committed crimes like
"It's not about me forgiving them as much as it's about them
forgiving themselves and being able to find someone who can
forgive them for their actions. Love is such a powerful thing but
can be destroyed by the simplest of actions and they need someone
to show the way back to each other; forgiveness is that key."
"Cason doesn't need love or forgiveness."
Laney stood up "Come on, it's time I show you this."
She flashed them to the same spot in the woods where she and
Cason had been. Oddly enough she could see still see Cason.
"Are we reliving this moment?"
"I'm showing you what really happened before you get all
judgmental on him."
They sat in silence for a while before another voice came through
the woods; there was another person there that night? Wait; there
was a group of people that night. She knew Caleb he had been
trying to get with her for such a long time. He loved her, he
told her about a year ago and when she turned him down yet again
he became obsessive. She just couldn't deal with a guy like him;
he was far from her standards. From head to toe he just wasn't
what she had pictured and he hated that. Caleb warned her that
it'd be the last thing that she ever did and when he presented
himself again she would have him. If he was going to come ask to
have her again what was with the group of men then?
"Caleb, man is this really necessary?" the one asked.
"Yes, the bitch rejected me one too many times for me to be able
to let it go. I mean who does she think she is, the Queen of
Sheba? No this woman will pay, I will slit her throat. She'll
plead and beg for me to save her life, she'll even agree to have
me but this time it won't be enough. I will kill her." Caleb
yelled, slamming his fist in the nearby tree causing a pile of
snow t come crashing down.
"Buddy, calm down; we know she did wrong but aren't you going a
little too far? I figured you'd try to get with her, maybe even
force yourself upon her. I know I would but killing her is just a
little too extreme."
"You're welcome to leave all you want, but if you do you won't be
able to have your way with her." Caleb smiled knowing he got his
friend on board; every man wanted to get with her, she had this
perfected look to her and no one seemed to be able to turn away
from her. They continued their journey up the mountain, talking
and laughing as if it was the most normal thing they've ever
done. Avalon could feel tears coming on; she had hurt him to the
point he wanted her dead. Not only had she broken his heart
multiple of times she had turned him into a killer. Focusing her
attention back to the guys just in time to see Cason come from
behind, taking out the last guy silently so none of the others
got on. Catching him before he hit the ground, he quietly laid
him down and then attacked the other two before grabbing a hold
of Caleb. Spinning him around and pinning him against a tree.
"Who the hell are you?" Caleb demanded.
"That's not your fucking business, what is my business is you
trying to kill that beautiful young woman."
"She deserves it, thinking she's too good for me. Well I'm going
to show her how good I really am"
"You won't touch her; I will be there to protect her. Forever,
she'll always be safe." With that Cason took the knife and slit
his throat allowing him to slump to the ground and stain the snow
red. Cason flashed out, and Laney quickly grabbed my hand and
flashed to follow him. They were at the tree where he was
leaning; she could see herself too. She looked beautiful,
flawless, and so perfect. Trying to concentrate on him she fixed
her eyes on his face. He looked at her with disgust, she was
right! But why save her if he hated her? What was going on, how
did this happen?
"Laney I don't get it; why did he save me?"
"That I can't answer love; he will have to tell you. I wish it
was simple though, I really do."
"Wish what was simple?"
"Everything is about to change and your about to be challenged.
My only advice is stick with Cason; he is the only one who can
save you now."
She flashed them back to her bedroom. "It's time to wake up, the
battle will soon begin."
Avalon opened her eyes, terrified of what Laney had said. She
went in to the shower, getting everything lined up perfectly.
Taking off her clothing piece by piece, trying her hardest to
avoid her conversation with Cason that was approaching. Once she
was done her shower she looked for some clothes, after a while
she found a pair of sweats and a tank top.
"Fuck it, this will have to do." She muttered.
She didn't know where he was but she was determined to find him;
she decided to start with the living room where she found Liam
and some girl. She was pretty, not like gorgeous but just enough
to be pretty. She had short purple hair, her eyes were a gold
color; there was a hoop going through her lip. Normally she
thought facial piercings were ugly but she made it look really
"Liam, do you um, know where Cason is?" she asked hesitantly, not
taking her eyes from the ground.
"He went out, said he needed to get some things. Avalon is it?"
"Yeah, so do you know when he'll be back?"
"Nah, whenever he shows up. He doesn't have much of a timeline
now that he knows your safe."
"Babe, shut it. She doesn't need to know any of that." The woman
said, standing up to stand in front of her. "Hi, I'm Rayven." She
said, and then reached for her hand.
"Liam, we'll go make some lunch, go get Cason."
"So are you a demon as well?"
"Kind of, it's a little more complicated than that."
"Well I was born a fairy, and when I met Liam the Fairy Queen
told me she'd curse me if I chose to love him. I thought she'd
let it go when she saw how crazy in love with him I was. But she
failed to see it like that and cursed me to live the Demon life.
Although I am a fairy and not a demon I feel the pain they suffer
at night time and I feel everything that Liam feels. It sucks,
but I love him and would want nothing more than to be with him
"You chose the life you live? But why? I mean I get that you love
him and everything but it just seems so wrong being here, loving
"At first it sucked because Liam barely went out because he…well
anyway what would you like for lunch? We have pretty much
"Salad of any kind please. Ooh how about Chicken Caesar Salad? I
know that Liam is the demon of Lies; I saw it when he looked into
my eyes, some demons allow it to be seen as others tend to keep
it hidden; like Cason."
"Yes he is. Well now that you know that I guess I can tell you.
Liam couldn't go out with having the need to lie, or to make
people see that others were lying; it was really hard for him.
But now we go places all the time. We go to the places no one
else goes to. It's really quite romantic and he lets me go
wherever I want."
"He isn't afraid you'll never come back?"
"Nah, he knows I love him."
Rayven busied herself to avoid the questions she so desperately
wanted to ask; she highly doubted Cason would tell her anything
himself and she just needed to know what was going on. Cason and
Liam came strolling in; giving Rayven a kiss Liam whispered 'I
love you'. Rayven grabbed two bowls of food and she and Liam
moved to the living room. Avalon grabbed her own plate and sat at
the table, Cason followed right after her.
"Avalon, I'm sorry for how I reacted earlier; my curse, my demon
is personal and I really don't want to discuss it."
"Fine; but there is something we have to talk about, whether you
want to or not."
"And what's that?"
"Laney, the angel of forgiveness came to be this morning, or last
night; don't really remember but anyway she said that the battle
was just about to begin."
"Hmm, is that all she had to say?"
"Well no… she also took me the woods again."
"Well my spirit did, not my body. Anyways I know what really
happened that night; I know why you were there. You didn't expect
to see me that night did you?"
"No, I figured you'd be inside with your friend. I made it known
that I was there to keep you out of the woods but you still
"I didn't know that my life was at risk, normally people just
happen to love me. Whether they want to or not."
"Maybe so, but this guy sure wanted you dead. What did you do to
him? Turn him on and then turn him away?"
"No, I'm not like that. He kept trying to get with me and then a
year ago he made it clear he loved me; I turned him down. He just
wasn't what I wanted, or what I needed. Being the Angel of
perfection your standards are higher than most and everything has
to be perfect to my liking. He wasn't perfect, he was no Kian."
"Never mind, he isn't important right now."
"Yes he is. Is he your boyfriend? Your lover?"
"Is some one jealous?"
"Absolutely not! I need to know, so we can figure this all out."
Cason stood up and went out on the balcony. Avalon followed; not
really wanting to be alone.
"It's so beautiful" She said, looking out at the water.
"Yes you are beautiful." Cason said, smiling and reaching for her
hand. "I'm sorry if I sometimes get mad; everything is just
"I forgive you Cason, and I will further down the road."
Pulling her closer to him, he kissed the top of her head than
turned and walked inside the house. Avalon was left confused; how
was she going to make him open up to her? He was stubborn, rude,
but yet he was sweet and caring. So again she was confused; do I
hate him? Or do I like him? She wished she could go back home and
be with her beloved best friend; Nell was probably freaking out
right now. She worried she'd never get to see that beautiful
girl; she won't be able to say how beautiful she thinks she is,
or be the one to help her when she needs it. She figured she'd
talk to Ray, maybe she could help get what she wants. Heading to
the living room where she found Rayven watching some demented
television show. "Ray, can we talk? Away from the ears of the
"Sure. Come with me honey." She got off the couch and headed up
the stairs, entering the second door to the left. It was one of
the smallest rooms she had seen so far but the balcony made up
for it; there was a hot tub on it. The room held many different
kinds of bathing suits, from bikini's to one pieces, and even two
pieces. She picked a white bikini; knowing white was the one
color that made her perfect. Rayven picked a purple and black
bikini; she was tiny. Her naval was pierced twice; both bottom
and top were done. They slid slowly into the water, both feeling
"So what's up Avalon?"
"It's my friend Nell, she needs me. She needs to hear how
beautiful she is, she needs to see something beautiful; if she
doesn't she could die."
"What do you mean?"
"She's the angel of beauty. Which means she needs to see the
beauty in the world, she needs to know she's beautiful."
I have an idea. Let me talk to Cason and Liam first though."
