We walked a couple of miles along the beach until we reached the nearest town, which was filled with activity. We walked into the closest diner, which was called the “Hale café”, and sit down in a booth. A short, stout man with a moko on the right side of his face hands us some menus and says he’ll come back when we’re ready. We look at our menus, when Raven breaks the silence.
“So, what do we do now that we’re in Hawaii?” I thought it over and, before I could answer, the man returns and asks if we’re ready. I order the A'a hot wings (as spicy as they can get) and Raven orders the laulau fish wrap. He leaves and Raven asks me again what we’re going to do. I think again, and then I came up with an answer.
“What I think we need to do is just hide out here until either of my parents catch on, then we just run again.”
“But, we can’t just keep running around the world and hope that they don’t find us, I mean, it’s ridiculous!”
“Yes, it may be ridiculous, but it’s the only plan we got and we have to stick with it.”
“Okay then.” The waiter came back with our food and leaves. We dig right into our food. Being Death, plus the son of Satan, I could eat any kind of spice I wanted and it wouldn’t burn. When I was on my 4th wing, Raven burps and I see that she had just finished her wrap in just a minute. She giggles and says:
“I grew up with a big family. So if you didn’t finish you food fast enough, then it get stolen off you plate.” I look at her and just laugh. She was so amazing, yet so down to earth, that I couldn’t believe that I was here with her. I finish my wings and wipe the sauce off my face. We talk while we wait for the bill. Not necessarily about our plans, just about our plans. She asked about my life as Death and what I do. I ask about the stuff that mortal usually do that intrigue me: war, happiness, hate, school, and (what I thought was funniest) I asked her;
“What the fuck is with internet dating, I mean, it’s just a place that lonely losers lying about who they are and when they think they found ‘the one’, they’re surprised when it turns out it’s just a bald and fat 50 year who said he was a 25 year who was an all-muscle marine who loved to talk about their feelings instead of just playing world of warcraft 24/7! God, its ridiculous!” she laughs so much that she snorts like a pig. We both look at each other in silence, and then we start laughing even harder until we’re both snorting like crazy. People at the other booths were looking at us like we were ill, so we stopped and left. As we were walking, it started raining. We ran to the nearest hotel and checked in. even as we were heading to our room, we were still laughing. I don’t think we were laughing about anything, but I think we were just happy to be together. When we got to our room, Raven locked the door behind us. We rested on the bed and started to make out. It was like I was filled with her essence as we held each other close. When we pulled apart, I stared into her eyes and she stared into mine. At that moment, I thought I caught a glimpse of something. It looked like pure happiness. We look away and when we look back, I say to her:
“In my immortal life, I would have never has done what I did, but when I see you… I just melt in your embrace. Raven Williamson, I love you and I will always love you with all my being.” She looks straight into my eyes, into my very being, and says:
“And with my eternal soul and being, I will never betray or leave you for as long as my essence lives on.” We kiss and start removing our clothes. When we settled on the bed and were just about ready to get into it, the entire wall explodes and demons flood in. leading them was Damon and he looks and laughs.
“Dude, your mom is, like, super-nasty in bed, bro. Oh, by the way, we have to kill that whore girlfriend of yours now.”
