    It was in the middle of the day and Luciana was avoiding as many spots in the town as possible. She borrowed a little extra money from a man a few weeks back and they followed her to this town. She probably shouldn't have paid him back with a fool's gold. Now, she was ducking in and out of alley ways and it was more than annoying. She thought she had shaken them when she turned a corner and bumped straight into one of the thugs. "There you are little lady." he said as he grabbed her shoulders. "Huh? Who are you?" she played innocent, but that didn't work. The man's hands tightened as she screamed at the top of her lungs. Out of fear of being apprehended, the man let her go and backed away. She smirked, kicked him in the groin, and ran off before he could retaliate.

    A few of his men followed her as she ran through the streets of this smell town. It was difficult to run in heels, but she seemed to be a damn master of it. She turned down another alley on accident, the thugs on her heels. One of them charged. "Get out of my face." she said with her hand up. The man was instantly thrown back into his friends. "Move! Move! Move!" she shouted as she ran through them, each being tossed to the side as she darted passed them. "Get her!" one of them yelled as they recovered from her assault. She ran back out of the alley and turned only to run straight into a man. She didn't recognize him, but that didn't stop her from claiming him as hers. "Honey, help me! Please! These men are trying to hurt me. They've been chasing me all over town!"

    The world. It might not be all his, but it might as damn well be. Leon Amatria loved the way humans lived. He might be different from the rest of everyone, but it's not like he enjoyed life that much differently. He loved to eat, sleep, drink, fuck, and anything else that he felt brought him pleasure. He didn't particularly care for drugs though. He's still mortal (to his chagrin) and all the fun ones are too dangerous. So he'd rather not even tease himself with just a single hit. He's just not going to go in at all. But you can bet your ass Leon can drink anyone under the table.

    And that's exactly what he had done the previous night. Leon had made quite a pretty penny on betting the night before. What was he betting on? Simple, who all wouldn't last against him. He had a bit of a headache, sure, but he wasn't letting that slow him down. Something as trivial as that can't stop the lord of lies. But do you know what can make Leon take a step back? A hot woman begging for his help. Leon thought quickly, and wrapped his arms around the woman. He then held her there as he leaned down and began to kiss her deeply.

    Leon held it for a few seconds after he notice them leave. He didn't wipe her taste from his lips. That was going to be something he was going to savor. The pretty ones always tasted the best, and she was definitely no exception. Maybe it was something she ate or maybe it was her lip balm, but Leon swore he could taste peaches. "I hope I was a good enough distraction for you." Leon's voice was practically a purr of confidence. "Sorry if it was a little too sudden. When faced with such a beauty, it was the only thing I could think to do." Leon grabbed Luciana's hand and brought it up to his lips, kissing the back of it. He winked a crimson eye at her. "And because it would be rude to get such a wonderful gift such as a kiss from a fine young woman like you without you knowing my name, I am Leon. Leon Amatria." The lord of deceit smiled at this one, whose attitude was enough to catch his attention. Her body was a great plus though.

    "Move! Drop! Get out of my face! Go!" It didn't matter what spell she thought to use on this man because nothing would happen. Her lips were sealed with his and she needed to speak to cause the effect. Maybe one day she could make a few mental commands, but that is not this day. The kiss broken and the men that were chasing her had moved along. "Um..." was the first thing she said. He was strangely charming. She watched with wide confused eyes as he kissed her hand. Then as she regained her composure, she put her hand son her hips. "Well this was unexpected." she said with a raised eyebrow. "I was hoping you'd kick their asses, not steal my first kiss." She looked back away from him and narrowed her eyes. "Hm... I need to leave town." She mumbled as she brought her attention back to him. "Thank you for your... help." Luciana stepped around him and began making her way towards the end of the village. "Leon Amatria, was it? You should make it pink next time. Or make it blue. I'd make it green as well, but not everyone likes that in a kiss." He wouldn't be able to feel it, but his hair was now pink, eyes were blue, and his skin was now green. She gave a sweet smile and skipped off. She just loved playing tricks on people she met and Leon was no exception.

    "A pretty young lady like you hasn't been kissed before? Well, that's a damn shame. I'm glad to have the honor of having your first kiss. Sorry it was under such odd circumstances though." Leon did have a bit of regret for just stealing her first kiss. But it's not like he meant to. And he wasn't going to voice anything of the sort. "And besides, simply kicking their asses would have been far more boring." Leon let out a small chuckle.

    As she left, Leon waved. He had been a little confused by her thing with colors. But well, humans were weird as ever-loving-hell. And the women were weirder. "I wish you luck in your travels." And that was when he noticed the color of his hand. It was... Green. It took him a moment to connect a dot, and then he just smiled. The next thing Luciana knew, she was stopped. She had been quite a distance away, but now Leon was grabbing her arm. And that wasn't all. Even though his eyes were blue, there was a piercing red circle glowing through the color change. But most terrifying of all was what was writhing around him. It was like someone had animated smoke and spray painted it black. It was thick enough to block out light like actual clothing, and it now acted like a hooded cloak, covering his changed face.

    "You are a crafty one." Leon's wicked smile shone through the shadows cast by the hood. And Luciana would be able to feel the pressure he was putting on her. It was like someone was telling her to bow down. People in the street collapsed to one knee. And it was coming from Leon. "And here I thought you were just some pretty, dumb woman who got in a bit of trouble she couldn't handle. Someone with no talent, no skill, and only good looks. But no..." The pressure... stopped. And Leon's voice turned hot with intrigue. "You are far more... interesting."

    And then Leon let go of Luciana and took a step back, smiling confidently. But it wasn't normal. It wasn't like he was before. He was surprised, and that surprise gave him a thrill. "You actually got me with something. I would be lying if I said I wasn't impressed. Too long have humans been too weak, too unskilled, and too stupid to actually do anything of the sort to me. But you... You actually did something. I think I should give you my proper name. It's not Leon Amatria. That's just my legal name here. My actual name is Aphaleon. Although, the name Anduriel might be a bit more common. But please, do continue to call me Leon. Too much predjudice is already surrounding the name Aphaleon."

    Luciana was almost at the end of town when she felt a hand wrap around her arm and stop her. She turned to see Leon standing there with the black cloak covering him. Her eyes widened, her body tensed, and a look of utter horror plastered along her features. Was this it? Did she finally end up playing the wrong joke on the wrong person? Her body trembled for a moment when she felt that odd pressure, but then he let her go and all that fear stopped. She blinked in confusion and surprise. "I'm... interesting?" Luciana repeated his sentence and then flipped her hair. "It took your skin turning green to notice that?" He explained himself and who he was. That name. It wasn't human. She almost felt like she heard it somewhere before, or maybe read it. "A... de-..." she stopped mid-sentence and shook her head. "Not possible. I thought the summonings were just myths of the big city? Are you actually one of them?" Luciana then realized that everyone around her was recovering from what he had done. It was then that certain men turned a corner and saw her again. "There she is. Get her!" They charged. "Put it back up! Put it back up!" she flailed her arms at Leon, hoping he'd do as she said.

    Other demons would have brought some sort of horrible fate upon Luciana for what she did. Not Leon. He was impressed that a mere human was able to do anything to him.That someone had the gall to do it. He'd normally say the balls big enough, but the only thing she had like that were those marshmallow mountains on her chest. So they'd work for this."My kind is no myth. Neither is our opposite. Why don't we talk ab—" That was when the men turned down the alleyway and Luciana began to flail at him. She had some kind of talent, but it seemed to be more focused on one-on-one situations.

    "I'll do you one better." Leon smiled. "On two conditions. One, I want your name. The second is of no cost to you other than a bit of your time, but it would take a bit too long to explain." Luciana kept looking back and forth between him and those chasing her, sort of hopping up and down anxiously running in place. "Okay, okay! Luciana and whatever! Sure! Please just make them leave me alone!" Leon's smile widened and his teeth shone in the sun. "With pleasure."

    Leon picked Luciana up bridal-style and then the pressure returned. Even with him right next to her, she'd still feel it like before. The black cloak writhed about and wrapped around Luciana's face, obscuring it from onlookers. And then, Leon ran. His first step was much longer than should be possible for a humanoid creature. It was like he was leaping, but it was so smooth. As they passed through other alleyways and across streets, the pressure forced man and beast alike down. But once they were out of the town and in a nearby forest, the pressure faded. Leon sat Luciana down and smiled once more. "So, when should I pick you up for our dinner date?"

    Luciana instinctively clung to her rescuer when he picked her up. The pressure he put out was odd and made her feel heavy. Soon, the two of them were fleeing town. He was getting her the hell away from those bastards and so far out of town that they hit the nearest forest. She was set down and took in a deep breath, sighing in relief. "Thank you." Luciana smiled and put her hands on her hips. She was about to ask him what the other part of the deal was when he said it. Luciana's jaw dropped and she slouched forward, letting her arms hang lazily in front of her. "Wait... Really? Why would a demon want to go on a date with a human? I get why anyone would want to date me, but the racial thing has to be some sort of a problem... isn't it?" Luciana asked with a continuously raised eyebrow. "Oh... and... Here you go." Luciana snapped her fingers and the colors all went back to normal.

    "Very much appreciated." Thank... uh... Hm, what would a demon like Leon thank for Luciana finally undoing the magic? Bah, no matter. He was finally back to normal. He had no idea his hair and eyes were different, but he was glad to see his skin back to its perfect color. "The only problem that might come out of it would be the whole children then. But you humans are smarter than most of the barbarians in the Nether, so I imagine there's some way to work around it." Leon shrugged. It wasn't a big deal to him. "That is, of course, unless you have a problem with me being a demon. Although, just like you're not an everyday human, I'm not an everyday demon." And then something clicked. "Ah, I'm not under contract either. I was able to get the ability to stay here indefinitely. It's a common thing that my kind and those fluttery prisses go for, but not many plan for it. They just ask to stay and are then just thrust into this world. But don't worry, I won't just randomly pop back to the Nether unless I wanted to. And with someone as interesting as you around, I don't entirely see a reason to go back." Leon's smile widened with that last comment. She seemed to have a ego like he did. He might just know how to push her buttons to get her interested in him.

    What he was saying was understandable and fine... Except one part. "Wait what?" she replied in the middle of his sentence, but he kept on going. Once he finished talking, she waved her hands in front of her. "Whoa, whoa, whoa... Children? So that's your game? You're just planning to fuck me? Once thing I do remember hearing about your race and Angels are the fact that they can't reproduce with humans!" Luciana crossed her arms and stomped her foot. "Now you listen here. I don't care if you're a demon, angel, vampire, werewolf, pixie, or whatever the hell else might actually be out in this damn world..." Luciana stepped forward and poked at his chest, "If I had known your intentions were going to be to use me, I would have just dealt with those guys myself!" She flipped her hair again and turned away, stomping off in anger. "Stupid demon... At least we can document their similarity to human men..."

    Ah, she got the whole thing wrong. Well, she got what he was trying to say wrong. As she tried to step away, Leon grabbed her arm again. "You really are an interesting one. If I wanted to fuck you and only fuck you, I would be just like those peons back in the Nether. Although you've got a damn good body and are probably a virgin, I don't just want to fuck you. You might even be able to give me the best mind-blowing sex a human can give, but I'm not going to just bend you over a table or a crate in an alleyway and drive into you one way or another." Leon let her go, but didn't stop talking.

    I"m not going to deny that I want to squeeze those well-developed breasts of yours. Nor will I deny that you probably taste delicious and will probably drive my body crazy with that soft-looking skin of yours. Hell, I won't even deny that I do want to fuck you. But you're interesting to me first and foremost. I can go and find another woman with a good body that would be moaning my name within minutes of us even meeting. But I don't want something as... boring as that. That's why I said dinner first. If you want to jump my bones afterward, fine. I won't stop you—it'd probably make a damn good dessert for the both of us. But we're going to have a date first. I want to know where you get your non-existent balls from. You did something no human has had the balls to do. And who knows, it might be because you don't have balls that you were able to do that. You're interesting, and I've only known you for a few minutes. So I want to know what makes you more interesting."

    Stuck. She was absolutely stuck. The brutal honesty was more shocking than anything this man had done. When he finished, she stayed silent and stared at him for a while. It took a minute for her to snap out of her daze, but when she did she took a deep breath and sighed. "Alright then. I guess it was part of the deal, wasn't it? Fine... I'll go to dinner, but understand this... I don't consider hunting and then eating around the fire a date. We're in the middle of a forest, the closest town is crawling with people who are hunting me, and the nearest town after that is Colburn, which isn't exactly a romantic spot... Unless you're a knowledge freak. So tell me, Leon... Where exactly do you plan on having this date? You say your paying. Fantastic, I don't have the money to get anything decent anyway."

    Hook. Line. Sinker. "Do you really think I'm the type to get my own hands dirty and hunt for my own food? I may be one of the stronger demons, but I'm not going to do something as boring and dirty as that." Leon waved that thought off. "As for where, one of my places, obviously." Leon smiled. "And by that, I mean one of my manors. Colburn, Almarc, Arkhangelsk, Empyrea. Those are all the cities I have a manor in."

    "A minute ago I said that my kind and Angels both don't seem to plan on coming to this world to stay. I did. I have been summoned five times, and four of those times were me planning my permanent stay here. I have wealth, citizenship, and knowledge of the laws of the lands. And interest is an amazing thing you know. It's how I could afford those manors. They're all built the same and decorated the same too. That way I don't get confused about which bedroom is mine."

    "As for what you said... About not having money to get anything decent. Stay with me for a while. I have enough money to buy just about whatever you want. Wine, food, a house or two... I won't buy you a man though. If any man is worth waking up beside you, it's me. And it would let me get to know you better. And you'd get to know me better as well. Oh, no charge, by the way. It will just be fun to have someone living there that I can't just order around." Leon smiled again, although this one was not like the others. This was a genuine, semi-happy smile. "I don't think you have anything to lose on the offer. And if you wish to travel, then I'll simply travel with you. Does that sound appealing to you?"

    "Are you sure you've come to understand the ways of this world?" Luciana asked rather bluntly, "You definitely got the deals and contract type stuff down, but you don't seem to know the ways of women at all." Luciana turned away from him and put one hand on her hip and the other in the air with her index finger up. "For one... It's stupid to mention children before you've even been on the first date." She put a second finger up. "And two, making a woman travel that far for a date at your home is not the best way to impress her." Luciana put her hands behind her back and turned back to him. "It seems you've only run into the trashiest of women in Aurora. A first date should be a public place with a romantic atmosphere, especially since we've only just met today! It makes it more comfortable, less creepy, and shows what kinds of things a man is willing to do to catch the eye of the woman he's interested in. Somewhere like a beach... a restaurant. But your home? I don't care how rich you are." Obvious lie. "The same way you could find some easy whore to randomly screw in an alley... I can find a rich man who is willing to spend a few extra dollars to get to touch these." She grabbed onto her own breasts and let them go, allowing a little bounce. "You've proven that yourself."

    Leon laughed. It was a short, hearty laugh. "My, my, my. You really are a good catch. I would not say I've run into the trashiest women though. Just that I have yet to meet anyone quite like you. And comparing you to any of them would be far too skewed." Leon was trying to push her ego a bit more. She deserved it after everything she's done. "None of them can hold a candle to you. Mainly because you're the only one brave enough to say anything of that sort to me."

    "And you say that you can find any rich man that wants to touch those breasts of yours. You probably can. The only kind that wouldn't are gay." Leon held up a finger this time. "But there is a difference between me and that kind of man beyond mee being a demon. As it stands, I could go the rest of my life without getting a sampling of you. I want to know you. The sex would just be a bonus—and a good one at that." Leon acknowledged that while he is similar to that kind of man, he's different in that he'd be paying her to get to know her. In a way, he was paying her to be a friend.

    Moving to the date conversation, Leon had to think for a moment. "Somewhere public though. I can get us spots on the beach of Lake Colburn, but if you're wanting to show off, I can't say I'd see many people there. There are some nice restaurants in Colburn though. Either way, it is customary to let the woman pick out the dining locale I believe. Since my home will not do, then I'll just have to show you around Colburn." And then Leone stepped a little closer to her. "But overall, I can't say that I do know the ways of women. So, Luciana," Leon leaned in to where he was maybe an inch away from her face, "why don't you show me?"

    Luciana wasn't sure what she had gotten herself into. He stepped in so close. Her back ended up against a tree and her eyes wouldn't look into his. She couldn't. If she did, her face would turn too red for her liking. "That's something you learn over time." she said with her head turned away from him. "If we're going to go, let's go." The two began their way to Colburn. It wasn't going to be a short walk, but luckily it was a nice day. Over their two to three hour long walk to the city, Luciana made sure to ask her new found companion a few questions about himself. He had a bit of an ego, similar to her, so she figured that showing her interest would get a bit of information out of him. Questions:

    1) How old are you?
    2) Why do you need so many houses? Isn't that kind of a waste?
    3) How many women have you been with?
    4) I know little about Colburn, so you should pick the location by the way... Think on it while we walk or something.
    5) What kind of powers do you have?
    6) Do demons eat human food?
    7) Are angels and demons actually at odds? Is there a secret war being fought somewhere?
    8) What's your realm like? Why did you want to come to Aurora?

    When the two arrived at Colburn, it was getting closer to the evening and the sun was starting to set. Luciana wasn't sure where she was going to sleep tonight, but with a single glance toward Leon, that became obvious. She was going to end up sleeping at his house anyway and only because she didn't have enough money to rent a room for the night. "God damn it..." she sighed and lowered her head in irritation. "Alright, so where to?" She stood up straight and crossed her arms, waiting for his decision.

    And she wouldn't even look him in the eyes. Leon had done his job right. He stepped away as she said for them to go. It was a good thing too. He didn't want to be caught out there at night. As they walked, Luciana asked him a few questions. Could she not wait until dinner? Bah, no matter. She'll just have to answer his questions at that time.

    1) "Hard to say. I think my age would be converted to one-hundred-and-twenty human years."
    2) "I have citizenship in every country. If I travel, I'd prefer to know that I have a home nearby. A 'safe haven' if you will."
    3) "Four. Most of them back in the Nether. Only one was over here."
    4) "If you are sure, then I will."
    5) "That's a secret. I have a feeling you have only shown me the tip of the iceberg that is what you can do. It'd be a little rude to reveal that to you. But I will explain what I did earlier. That cloak of energy you saw around me. That is part of my power."
    6) "Yes, we do. When we're here at least."
    7) "A secret war, no. But we are at odds. They think that we're all 'bad' and 'evil' and want to 'corrupt the world' or something. They're just a bunch of assholes who don't know how to have fun."
    8) "I can't actually speak on the Nether. When we get summoned, it's almost like something mutes us from speaking about it. Angels have the same thing with their realm. All I can say is that I'm glad to be out of there. As for why I came here... Simple. You humans are so intriguing. And you alone have made this time spent here worth it."

    Colburn was sometimes bustling, sometimes not. It really depended on class schedules. Right now, it was somewhere in the middle. Some professors had exams coming up, some didn't. About half of the student body was free while the other half was cramming. "There is a restaurant a block south from here." Leon led Luciana to a restaurant known as the Shining Topaz. It was normally out of the price range for most students, but it still did well because of faculty. Leon led Luciana to the second floor of the building and onto a deck that faced the street. "Order whatever you'd like, Luciana."

    Leon, too, had some questions though.
    1) What is your last name?
    2) What line of work are you in?
    3) What kind of hobbies do you have?
    4) Are you a morning person or a night person?
    5) Where are you from?
    6) What do you know of my kind beyond what I have told you?

    Luciana wasn't familiar with some of what was on the menu, but she did find something simple to order. She was hungry, but she wasn't a pig and she wasn't going to use him like that. She kept looking over the street until he started asking her questions throughout their dinner. "So it's your turn to ask, huh? I wondered why you were so quiet on the road..." Luciana spoke up after he asked the first question. She shrugged. "I go by Grenier." And then she began answering the rest of them.

    2) "I don't work." She just shook her head in reply to this. There was a look of shame on her face, but also frustration.
    3) "I really only do minor things with the Arcane Arts... Otherwise I have no hobbies to really speak of."
    4) "Um... I think I understand what you mean and I guess a night person? I've never really paid much attention to it."
    5) "...Arcadia..." There was a strange hesitation here, like she had to think on how to answer. "Can't speak of one place."
    6) "Just what stories tell me... Which really isn't much."

    Luciana finished eating and placed her hands in her lap to wait for him to finish. She was suprisingly polite and well mannered at the dinner table. "I do appreciate this by the way..." Luciana spoke up, staring him in the eye. "I don't know what your intentions actually are, whether you've told me the truth, or whether you were sent by someone I've met before to apprehend me... Honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if it was any of them... But I did enjoy the meal... and the talk. I don't get to talk to people very often." Feeling as if she said a little too much, Luciana looked back to the street and stayed silent.

    Luciana had... interesting answers. He'd have to press more on what she meant about work. Shame and frustration were what he saw when she answered. This led him to believe that something happened that wasn't fully in her control. She didn't have any hobbies, and she was a night person. Leon had wanted her to order something more fancy. His meal was only slight fancier than hers. He had read some books on women, and one of them said to never order something more expensive than your date.

    Leon was just finishing his food when she spoke up again. This time, Leon actually caught something else. He took a sip of wine and stared out at the street like she did. While he talked, he just stared out there, not looking at her in the eye. "In the Nether, they call me the Lord of Deceit. But that doesn't mean every word out of my mouth is a lie. It just means I'm the best at it. Even if I may have pushed your buttons, I haven't had a reason to lie to you. I mean, I did admit that I do want to see you moaning my name in bed. There was just no point in it. You intrigued me and made me want to ask a question or two. And even with those answered, you only make me think of more. And they're all about you."

    "That's more reason you should stay with me though, Luciana. Well, not the sex. That could be arranged, but that wasn't what I was referring to. You say you don't get to talk to people often? Then stay with me. Not just for the night either. I don't mind listening, and talking to you is invigorating. You have a pretty voice, but beyond that, you are providing me with an experience I never would be able to have with any other woman." Leon took another sip. "But in the end, this is all just a way to get to know the woman that has caught my interest better."

    "There's just one problem with that... I travel, a lot. I don't plan on stopping either. I won't stay in one place too long. It's, as you would say, boring." Luciana kept her hands in her lap and just stared at him as she talked. "I do appreciate this dinner and the offer, but staying with you is not what I will be doing. Now, if you choose to travel with me, that's a different story that is a bit more considerable." Luciana stood up and bowed politely to him. "You've now gotten what you want. You know things about me and have had dinner together." She stood up straight again. "I will be leaving now." She first took a step back from him, not wanting to suddenly be grabbed and stopped like he had done so easily two times before. "Goodbye, Leon." Luciana turned on her heels and began to exist the restaurant.

    "And if you wish to travel, then I'll simply travel with you." Leon took a sip of his wine after he spoke. He didn't look at her when he said that."That is what I said before, correct? Correct." Leon's eyes finally turned to her. "Luciana, staying with me does not mean just staying at my houses, using my bed, et cetera. It means that when you wake up, I will be there or around. And when I wake up, you'd be there or around. And waking up to you in the morning, no matter where, would most certainly be a sight that'd rival even the aurora that your kind love so much. In other words, neither of us would be alone." Leon stood up and extended his hand in gesture that he had seen before only in books—a handshake. "So yes, let's travel together. With our brains and good looks, it will never be boring."

    He was insistent, wasn't he? She didn't walk away yet. Instead, she kept her attention him and raised an eyebrow at his words. "No, no. Leon. You don't seem to understand what I'm saying." She tilted her head with a sly smirk. "I'm not staying with you. I'm not traveling with you and we aren't traveling together. You're the one that wants to be by my side, wake up next to me every night, right? That's fine and your decision. However... If there is any stipulation on what we are doing... You will answer with the fact that you, Leon, are staying with me, Luciana. You're the addition, the companion, the new part of this journey of mine...Not the other way around. We are not equals on the part." She stepped back over and poked his chest, leaning down and whispering into his ear. "You have to earn that." She brought her face in front of his and looked directly into his eyes with that sly smirk never falling. "Now... If you can accept that, I suggest we get goin'." She turned now and walked away.

    Ah, so that's what she was getting at. She wanted to be the one with the 'reins' so to speak. She was so much like him that it was scary. But at the same time, there was enough of a difference to make Leon's pants tighten. Luciana didn't get to turn away fast enough though. Leon stood up, and as he did, he kissed her cheek. "You are just perfect, Luciana. I don't have anything in particular to do, and you're smart, capable, and downright entertaining, not to mention nigh-irresistible, so we'll see how long it'll take for me to earn that." Leon wrapped his arm around Luciana, bringing her in a little closer. Not in a romantic way, but more like how a friend would. "This will be fun."
