Ten? Twenty? One Hundred? A thousand? Arthur didn't know how long he was being tortured
anymore, every day he felt that part of him was disappearing, he didn't scream, he didn't cry andhe couldn't resist anymore.
"All right, all right, you are one of the few people who have lasted this long, come on, don't giveup now, or do you want to become a demon like us? Hahaha no, even worse, you might fall intooblivion, or become a devil. Although in your situation falling into oblivion is the most likely" said Kril while smiling frantically.
Kril continued to mock Arthur as she continued with her torture sessions, which she had beendoing for over ten years, that was how long it had been since Arthur arrived in the torture room.
At first she thought he wouldn't last long and would soon turn into a demon, but he seemed tohave a lot of willpower, and this only gave her more pleasure.
▪︎Somewhere in hell▪︎
"So, have you found out where he is?" Asked a man who was looking somewhere in the huge hell realm.
"Yes my liege, he is in the lowest area of hell, which is under the command of the demon baron Liev, he is being held in one of the torture rooms "
"Torture room? Didn't they hear my announcement as soon as I returned from the human world?Well he is in the lower area, that explains why they didn't identify his Aura, go get him and make sure you punish the baron for his mistake. "
"As you wish" and so the man left the room and disappeared.
Kril was still torturing Arthur, this time she chose a device that dropped a little lava on his backevery few seconds, this was one of her favorite methods, where she could see the flesh beingburned at the same time she could see the pain on the face of the one being tortured. As shecontinued to watch Arthur's skin burn she heard someone knocking very hurriedly on the dooroutside, puzzled as to who it could be she decides to open it, and to her amazement it was the baron himself, the one in charge of this section of hell.
"M-Master Liev? What brings you here?" Kril said as he bowed.
"You tramp, didn't I tell you that if you found him you should let me know? You useless" Lievshouted giving her a punch so hard that she hit her back on the wall across the room, and someof her rib bones were broken.
"Master, please, if I did something that offended you, I am sorry" Kril screamed with blooddripping from his mouth.
"'Shut up' Liev quickly stopped the machine that was pouring lava on Arthur's back and broke thehandcuffs with his bare hands and ran out carrying Arthur in his arms.
'What the fuck was that?" thought Kril still slumped on the ground.
Arthur was trapped in the chains, he was already used to the tortures, but the larva part wasthe worst, he felt his muscles literally melting, but no matter how much his body was tortured,he just didn't die, the only thing he felt, was as if sometimes he was going to fall asleep, butsometimes he could resist because he didn't know what that, and if he went to a place worsethan this? But this time was different he thought he couldn't stand it anymore, when he felt hisbody falling asleep and felt the strength leaving his body he just welcomed this feeling, after allnow any place couldn't be as bad as staying here.
Still dizzy Arthur heard sounds of someone knocking on the door, but he didn't pay muchattention, more suddenly he saw Kril flying across the room and when she hit the wall he could see her bleeding and for the first time he smiled since he got here.
'I just wanted to see what will happen to you, how I wish you could feel some of what I felt'
Arthur thought as his eyes slowly closed, but not before he felt someone release him.
"So that's the boy?"
"Y-Yes" replied Liev trembling.
"What happened to him? Weren't you informed that the moment he arrived here he was to betaken back to His Majesty? I believe you know how much he has been looking for the boy"
"I am sorry, I had no idea that he was in possession of a punisher, I beg your pardon"
"Good that it is"
The man placed his hand on Arthur's body and he quickly healed, plus he still had his eyes closed.
"If it was a little later he would have fallen into oblivion, now just wait for him to wake up" the man said.
"I'm sorry, please have mercy, I have always been loyal to your majesty" said Liev begging for hislifeThe other man carried Arthur in his arms and stood with his back to Liev.
"If you allow me to live I might yet..." Liev tried to speak, more before he finished his sentence hishead slid off his neck and fell to the ground lifeless, the baron had no time to see what killed him.
"Scum, the King allows no mistakes" the man said as he disappeared.
Arthur had no idea what happened after his eyes closed. He was already dead, right? So whatwould come next?
When he woke up and looked around he was lying on a bed in a place that could only be called a bedroom, and looking around he could see a man standing, looking at whatever it was through a window.
"Good thing you woke up Arthur, I've been looking for you for a long time" said the man
Looking at the man closely, Arthur realized that he was a very handsome man, with long hair,smooth skin and wearing some kind of white suit, he couldn't help but wonder what was goingon, since his last memory was of him being tortured, and his coastline melting, was it all adream? Was everything that happened an ability? This man's ability?
"Who are you? What's going on?" Arthur asked looking intently at the man in the window.
"My real name is Linfael, but you can call me Lucifer, I prefer it.''
The plot follows the story of Arthur a 15 year old boy who after waking up in a dark cell,
discovers that he has died and is in Hell. After years of being tortured, just as he is about to fall
into oblivion, someone comes along with an unexpected proposal, "Become the next Lucifer",
a proposal that will allow him to return to Earth, and perhaps take revenge on his murderers, a
proposal from Lucifer himself.
