"What the fuck" said Arthur waking up the next morning, he was a person who liked to sleep, but now he was thinking a lot about his nightmares, and the sleep that should be his moment of rest was literally becoming his biggest fear, he still remembered the words that his sister said to him in his dream, and also remembered the macabre smile that the woman gave him.
"Wait, that woman in my dream, was she a demon? So these nightmares of mine are consequences of her ability?"
"Shit, I think I'm going crazy, first a system appears and tells me I was in a tomb, then I'm forced to dig to get out, find out I died, and now these fucking nightmares..."
"Brother? Have you finally gone crazy? Did I hit too hard yesterday?" said a voice
Arthur still in bed looked at the door and saw a girl in a school uniform standing there looking at him.
"Emy? How long have you been there?" asked Arthur ashamed that his sister had overheard his antics.
"Not long, but next time I should take it easy, hehehe, come on dad is here and wants to see you" replied Emily leaving the room.
Outside the room Emily was thinking about last night when Arthur started screaming, she slept next to him but later her mother took her to her room. She wanted to know what had happened to him, but her mother said she wasn't supposed to get involved in that. Now she heard Arthur talking to himself, she didn't understand much but he sounded angry.
'What are you hiding brother?' she said to herself as she walked downstairs.
The Scheuer family home was a large two-story house with four bedrooms, one for Emily, one for Arthur, one for visitors, and one for Walter and Naomi, Arthur's parents.
Arthur didn't see the need for a guest room since no one visited them, downstairs was a living room, and the kitchen, it was a pretty big house for four people.
Arthur took a shower and got ready to go see his father, walking down the hall he reached the stairs and then he saw. He saw his mother smiling, she was still very beautiful even with two children, her hair was brown and reached the middle of the back, her eyes were also brown, and beside her was Emily making a face and in front of her was Walter Arthur's father, he was a strong man, his hair was brown almost black, and he was wearing casual clothes, after all he had just come from an expedition. Seeing this scene of them smiling happily, reminded Arthur of his nightmare and without realizing it he stood for a long time looking at them at the table, as if he was no longer part of them.
"Hey big boy, so you really came back?" Walter said getting up from the table and hugging Arthur.
"Yeah, I'm back dad" replied Arthur returning the hug.
"Come on let's have some coffee, your mom already told me the whole story, don't be like that, the important thing is that you're back"
Arthur always liked his father, in a world where the strong were the most valued, Walter never charged or forced Arthur to train, even Emily who inherited Lightning's ability was never forced to train. Besides Walter was very strong, and who didn't like to have a strong father?
Sitting down at the table Arthur began to listen to the story of his father's expedition, and indeed he was back, with his mother, father, and sister, and he would do everything to make sure that his nightmare did not come true. He had already done his daily mission and gained 1 point in endurance and 1 in strength, he would do everything so that the scene he saw in his nightmare would be just that, a nightmare.
The conversation continued along with the laughter, Emily every now and then said something silly that got smiles from everyone, the coffee went on as usual and after crying a lot Emily left to go to school, and Naomi, Walter and Arthur would go to see Jhon to thank him and to know if everything was ok with him, he had helped Arthur, and the Scheuer Family thought it would be good to reward the man somehow.
"Love? Come on we're late! I still want to go out with Arthur later, after all he is already sixteen and I want to show him the good side of life," Walter winked at Arthur, and he wondered what his father meant by 'the good side of life'.
"I'm coming" replied Naomi "And what's this about showing you the bright side of life?"
"Hohohoho calm down, I just want to show you the bestias crystals that I got on the expedition "
"I really hope so" said Naomi placing her finger on Walter's cheek.
Arthur seeing the scene could only smile, his parents had always been very fond of each other.
"So shall we get going? I want to see Jhon again he has helped me a lot" Arthur said walking to the door.
"Let's go" Walter and Naomi answered at the same time.
As they were about to leave the house Naomi and Walter looked at each other with a worried look on their faces. Suddenly:
A huge explosion exposes Arthur's house, taking along two houses that were next door.
Where Arthur's house had once been there was now only rubble, dust, and smoke.
And out of the smoke came a humanoid figure.
"Oh it seems that humans are not so fragile, they withstood that explosion" said a voice.
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.
