Shall we see what happens now that Asmodeous has revealed himself? Will Amaris look past his beauty and see the evil beneath? Let's find out!!! Enjoy!!!!
The Watcher's Guild: Sweet Nephilim
“This is how you treat a poor innocent creature?” Amaris scooped up the dead mouse, shivering at the feel of the broken and battered body. “He hadn’t done anything to you! This is what you want me to be like?”
Asmodeous smiled, and this time his teeth were sharp and fierce. He was still handsome, but now his beauty was tinged with something ugly and feral. “You belong with us. Enough whining. No more...choice. Come with me, or I will do to you as I did to the vermin.”
“I’m…I’m not going anywhere with you.” She tried to stand, but her legs were too weak and she collapsed back onto the dirty pavement. All she could do was shake her head. “I know you saved me, but I don’t like you. You’re cruel and hateful, and I don’t believe you’re telling me the truth. I don’t care if you are handsome and built. I don’t care what you can give me. I don’t trust you.”
Turning to Eran, her eyes filled with tears. “I don’t know if what you’re telling me is the truth, but you haven’t made any promises, and you haven’t tried to force me.” She stared down at the poor creature in her hand and smoothed a finger over it gently. “I think you...you could kill, but not like this, and I don’t believe you would hurt anyone unless you had to. I don’t understand what is happening to me, but I do know I need help. It doesn’t make sense, but I trust you. So just like the mouse told me to do, I…I choose good over evil.” Her voice trembled once before she steadied it.
“I choose you, Eran.”
Eran’s eyes gleamed. “That is all I needed to know.”
A second later, she was enveloped in a warm healing light. Her pain eased, and she slumped back against the wall, the cessation of pain almost as weakening as the pain itself. To her amazed surprise, there was a movement in her hand, and she couldn’t help but grin when the mouse changed, instantly becoming whole and healthy again. Its tiny eyes blinked up at her, and then it leapt to the top of her head. Before she could grab for it, Amaris heard the clash of swords.
She cried out when she saw Eran standing tall and strong in front of her. He glowed with so much beautiful white light, she couldn’t help but shiver. Asmodeous attacked him, his red-bladed sword slinging hot fire wherever it landed. As she watched, the handsome dark man transformed before her eyes, becoming a creature right out of a horror novel. His humanness melted away, leaving only true evil behind. Still handsome, still strong, yet now he was filled with a corruptness that frightened Amaris down to her very soul.
They fought, the sound of ringing sword blades loud in Amaris’ ears. She found herself praying that Eran would win, even though a part of her still wasn’t sure she believed anything either of them had said. Was he an angel sent to protect her? Or was this all a delusion brought on by being attacked and getting a knock on the head?
“Bitch!” Asmodeous panted as he swung his evil sword at Eran’s head. His gleaming eyes were filled with hate as he stared at Amaris. “I will have you. I will kill your white knight, and then finish the job those two incompetents started.”
“You sent them, didn’t you,” Eran growled as he parried a thrust and then used his sword hilt to knock the demon back several feet. “No wonder you got here so fast.”
Asmodeous laughed. “I was just out for a little fun. I didn’t expect a good old fashioned rape to turn into an emerging. Lucky me. And a female at that. The Master will be pleased when I bring her in.”
“You will not touch her!”
“I will,” the demon spawn hissed, his features blurring into an even uglier evil. “I will touch her all over, and you won’t be able to stop me. I will whip her ass and bite her soft breasts until they bleed. I’ll spread her legs and fuck her until she screams for mercy. I will do things to her she’s never even imagined. Not even in her worse nightmares. She is mine. I can’t wait to start her lessons with how to properly treat her keeper.” His tongue licked out lasciviously. “Rape is my specialty, after all.
The words sickened Amaris as she scooted backwards, trying to make herself even smaller to keep out of Eran’s way. The pain was back now, and she felt herself slipping towards unconsciousness.
But those same shocking words gave Eran new purpose. He fought harder, pushing the other man back away from Amaris. His sword sliced through the air so fast, it could barely be seen. For the first time, Asmodeous began to look harried.
There was a clap of thunder, and the very heavens opened up. Rain poured down, soaking everything instantly. Eran gave a laugh as he knocked the sword out of the demon’s hands. “My God has sent the rain to put out your fire, evil one. Leave now, while I will still let you.”
Asmodeous hissed out a foul curse. “I am not leaving without the female.” He sent a choking cloud of putrid green smoke into Eran’s face, blinding him. Rolling, he picked up his sword, and with a single thrust sent it straight at the angel’s chest.
Amaris screamed in terror, but instead of hitting Eran, the sword rebounded and sliced back into the demon’s face. Asmodeous shrieked and staggered backwards, his handsome face literally cut in half. The cloud dissipated, and Eran stood, holding the sword before him, pointed straight up to heaven.
Black sluggish blood oozed down Asmodeous face as he retreated. He clapped his hand over his cheek to hold the flesh together. “I will kill you, Watcher,” he snarled. “This isn’t over.”
“She belongs to Jehovah now.”
The demon gagged at the Lord’s name. “I will have her yet.” He turned mad green eyes on Amaris. “Don’t forget it, bitch. You will be mine!” With that last threat, the evil creature disappeared in a cloud of foul choking smoke.
Eran immediately knelt next to Amaris. “You are safe, little angel. He is gone.”
She was shaking, in so much agony from her many wounds she could barely breath. “Help me, please,” she whispered brokenly as she lost consciousness. “I’m…I’m so scared, but...please...help me.”
As she went limp, he pulled her into his mighty arms. Brushing the hair back from her face, he tenderly kissed her. “I will help you, little angel. From this moment on, I will be there for you...always.”
Yay!!! Good triumphed over evil! At least this time. Stay tuned for what happens in next week's blog!!!!
