THE PRIEST AND THE DEMON GIRL
Act II - Why did it had to be you ?
"Just do it quickly" she looks at Leon with a determined look.
Leon cocks an eyebrow "I think you're mistaken, I'm not here to ki-"
"Oh shut up! Do I look like an idiot to you? I've seen people like you, killing my kind in the name of your boss upstairs!" She shouts with anger.
A moment of silence passes
"Tell me, what's your name ?" Leon asks her.
"What ? Do you think this is a joke ?" She looks at him irritated.
"I ask you again, what's your name ?"
She pauses for a minute.
"Rayn Hayden" her anger subdues.
"Nice to meet you Rayn, now that your arrogant attitude is out of the way, I can heal you" Leon smiles.
"You're joking right? Aren't you a priest? Why the hell will you help me?" She asks perplexed.
"I'm helping you because I'm a priest, I don't care if you're an angel or a demon, it's my job to help and heal people". He replies.
"Unbind the chains, let the river be no more controlled, let it flow like the cosmos in heaven, by the power of lord". As he finishes the spell, the invisible grip that held Rayn, is no more.
"What makes you think I'm not gonna kill you?" She grins
"With that wound, you'll only survive a day so even if you somehow kill me you'll be dead soon, I'm taking you to an old friend's house, I can heal you there"
"Uh-huh, sure but I'm gonna go" she turn the other way and starts to walk, griping her stomach, still bleeding.
"I won't do that if I were you" he smirks.
"Wh-" Rayn falls again.
"Oh! Come on seriously?"
"Should've warned you, the spell's effect lasts a while even after its removed" he says.
"Uh...uhhhh what do think you're doing?!" She shouts as Leon lifts her in his arms.
"You can't walk and I can't drag you tied to a rope because that would be animal abuse" he says jokingly.
"Sure, real mature, you act like you're a saint but you're probably a creep, flirting with nuns at your cathedral" she says, clearly irritated.
"Says the girl with overly exposed chest" Leon says with slight smile.
"I-uh...uh..ugh! See! You are a creep! You probably try to creep up on girls, try to get a glimpse of them in their underwear"
"Only the cute ones" he chuckles a bit.
"Ok I'm a demon, and even I think that's pervy"
They both continue their journey in silence.
What am I doing ? Being carried by a priest boy, how low have I become ?
Agitated but the only thing she can concentrate is on the sweet smell of Leon's sweat, grabbing him robe tight as she falls asleep.
He looks down at her, his eyes widen. The moonlight cascades on her face, her pale face shimmering, her crimson hair dances in the wind, her naturally long eyelashes flutter in her sleep.
"A marvel! Guess she really is a demon"
Rayn wakes up abruptly, finds herself in a house with only a cauldron.
"Good, you're awake, Leon patched you up quick". A man with rough facial features and strong muscles walks in.
"I'm guessing you're his friend, where is he anyway"
"He went to the cathedral, he is a brother after all" he replies
"Uh-huh, ok I'm leaving too". She gets grabs her red coat she was wearing on the floor beside her, starts walking.
"Wait, how are you able to recover so soon? With the injury you had, it shouldn't taken you weeks!" He questions her
She stops, looks at him over her shoulder and says "Easy, I'm a demon".
" A What?!"
"See ya" walks out of the door.
"Let's see if my wings work properly"
"Hey wait up, what you jus-"
Rayn's black wings with a span of 70 inches each pierce out of her back.
"Uhhhhhhh!!!! It finally so good!! Now let's visit that priest boy"
She disappears in a flash while Leon's friend stands in shock.
She reaches the cathedral and hides herself up the branches of an oak tree by it.
"Of all the ways, I could've been punished, of all the ways, my damnation could've been delivered, of all the people, who could've tortured me in most insufferable ways, why did my being had to be grateful to you? A priest".
Rayn looks down smiling at him as Leon's crisp hair plays in the warm summer breeze.
