I sighed as I walked towards the pale gold and silver gates leading to the end of heaven. My purple and blue streaked hair bouncing as I walked, my alabaster and pale purple wings swirling behind me along with my pale blue dress. Banished. Not a happy word to hear as an angel. As I got close to the gate I could see the pale reds and oranges on the other side. I took a deep breath before I saw the pale reddish blue flesh of an avarice demon. I stopped mid-stride before I cowered behind the nearest solid object. Which happened to be ten feet away and was a large granite statue.
Well, darn. I silently cursed myself for being so stupid. Why did I have to fall for a human bound to being banished to hell like I was now? It was their personality that enraptured me, not their fate or destiny. They were sweet, nice looking, and always had a smart wit that they fell back on. They didn’t cause trouble, they prevented it. I looked at the demon and squinted, the demon looked familiar. Same sparkling serpentine blue eyes, same reddish-gold hair, same cheerful smile.
“My angel?” The demon spoke. My eyes widened even more, the same sweet, elegant voice. It was Ash, Ash Griffin. My Ash. My everything.
“A-Ash.” I stuttered, worry and misery lacing my voice as I spoke, not letting him see where I was. “I-is that you?”
“My angel? Where are you?” He called, his voice laced with worry and sadness. I felt my heart ache as he spoke. He didn’t seem like himself anymore. He seemed a little less like himself, almost as if a switch was flipped and he lost half of his personality.
I carefully poked my head out from behind the large granite statue and looked at him. His head spun towards where I was currently hiding. I looked at him, tears blurring my vision. He didn’t look or act the same as before. He looked so different that I almost didn’t recognize him on closer inspection. His hair was darker in some areas and looked almost blue. The white of his eyes was now a glossy black slowly taking over the irises. His smile held something sinister within it, almost like the head angels smile before he banished me.
“What…?” I questioned quietly. I looked at Ash, he smiled widely, revealing large, white incisors. “Ash… what are you doing…?”
“I’m taking you with me,” he replied smugly. He looked at me and smirked, “why, you look marvelous mein Liebe.”
“P-pardon…?” I asked, wondering what he said. He never said anything like that to me when we first started to go out. “I-I don’t know what that means…”
“It means my love in German, my angel.” He replied, smiling at me sweetly. I still felt uneasy about how he looked at me.
“Oh.” I gasped slightly. I felt a faint heat spread across my cheeks as I blushed. “I didn’t know that you knew other languages, Ash…”
He chuckled darkly as he crept towards me, he was dressed in a red and black suit. I felt something wet on my cheeks. Tears. When did I start to cry? As he got closer his smile vanished and fear took over.
“What’s wrong?” He asked in a soft, worried voice. His eyes watering as tears slid down his reddish blue cheeks. “M-My angel…?”
I whimpered as tears streaked down my cheeks and a searing pain went through my back and lower abdomen. I saw stars dance in front of my eyes as I felt myself plunge towards the ground. Then everything went black.
