His Unknown Spawn
‘In the beginning…
The angel Lucifer was cast out of Heaven and condemned to rule Hell for all eternity.
Until he decided to take a vacation…
Little does he know; he also left his daughter.
Who will stop at nothing to bring him back…’
Lucifer. Devil. Satan. Prince of Darkness.
He has many names, but to me he’ll be Dad, just plain old Dad. Because that’s the relation we have. He’s my Father and I’m his Daughter. But unfortunately that’s not how our story is told.
You see, before my life began my father was the ruler of Hell. That was until he decided enough and went to live amongst you guys, the mortals!
But before he left he cut off his wings in order to show his father that he had enough following rules and orders. But little did he know one of those feathers changed, changed into a divine. And that divine happened to be me.
So now I am 20 years old, it’s been 20 years since Dad left and now it’s time I get to know him.
Hell hasn’t been the same since he left. Of course, I am the Princess of Darkness don’t get me wrong my crime and punishment is way worse than what he used to give. Or so I’ve been told. But like I said it hasn’t been the same without him.
Okay, okay fine you got me! Geez! I miss him, okay?
I know I’ve never met him and he doesn’t even know I exist! But something in me just yearns for that Fatherly love. I wonder what his reaction will be when he sees me.
Will he love me?
Will he accept me?
Will he be that type of Father that keeps the other divine away because he’s protective of his daughter?
I don’t know but I want to.
Anyways today is the day that I finally descend to the mortal world. Uncle Amenadiel says that I still get to keep my powers because they can’t be taken away from me but I can’t keep my wings… my wings, my precious wings I don’t know what I’ll do without these feathered friends of mine.
Yeah it’s true. Being the Princess of Darkness has it’s perks but at the same time no one knows I exist. Everyone think it’s another divine handling the business down in Hell but the truth is it’s me.
Amenadiel wants to keep me away from the others in order to protect me but I think something else is the case here. Maybe I’ll have to ask Dad about it when I see him. Speaking of which it’s time.
I enter Heaven with Amenadiel, the doors open and everyone glares at me. Amenadiel glares back and they all look down, keeping their heads bowed as well. A small smirk appears on my lips as we walk side by side.
Although there is a significant height difference. My Uncle is over 2-metres tall and I am only 1.5748m to be exact so yeah I am tiny and obviously didn’t get my genes from my Dad who is also 2-metres, but instead from a feather!
"Aradia" I hear and slowly walk to my Grandad.
I kneel down on the floor with my head bowed, "Rise, child" I hear the soothing voice of God before I look up.
"Are you sure you want to do this, dear?"
"Yes, Grandfather, I have to do this. I have to know where my Dad is. I have to see him" I explain.
"Very well then" Grandad nods with a smile on his face.
"We will send you to Lucifer’s last known location, the rest will be all you"
Before I can make out what’s happening next a slash is heard and a piercing pain is felt all over my back. I scream making everything shake around me as my wings are cut off. I cry in both pain and sorrow as my wings, my identity, is taken away from me. A few minutes later I calm down and wipe my face.
"I’m sorry" I whisper and look towards my Uncle and Grandad.
"Wish me luck" I say before i’m brought into the mortal world.
I land on my feet but fall to my knees. It’s dark and cold. I wrap my arms around me and realise I am completely… naked?
"Seriously?" I say looking up at the clouds.
Covering myself with my arms I pick myself up luckily God had mercy and decided to drop me here at night. At least no one can really see me but I need clothes!
Oh! If only I had my wings I could wrap them around me to keep myself warm… and covered but unfortunately they’ve been taken away from me. Well, I can’t really blame anyone but myself for that decision.
I walk slowly while still trying to cover myself when I see a piano bar I walk quickly towards it and see the sign reads ‘Lux’ and suddenly I feel drawn to it, like a powerful magnetic pull is calling me in.
Without another thought I open the door and walk inside. The pub is filled with various people, women dancing using poles and ropes and various other things, men are either watching them or dancing along, the smell of alcohol wafts through the air making me a little lightheaded.
Yes the Princess of Darkness can’t handle her alcohol! What? Sue me! I dare you, mortal! Ha, what I thought!
Okay looking at myself I’m in no position to be acting like this but… still. And besides if Dad finds out he'd be so embarrassed since I know he loves his Whiskey.
‘Hey, sexy’ I hear a voice say and turn around to a guy struggling to hold himself up, he looks at me up and down and tries to grab me but I move out of the way.
‘Oh for the love of.. I really don’t have time for this crap!’ I roll my eyes before kneeing him in the balls he groans and stumbles back. I push him onto the nearby sofa before making my way to the bar.
Okay, I know I’m hot but I don’t have time for these bozos. If I wanted to have some fun I would but this time i’m not in the mood. I really just want to find my Dad and get the hell out of here.
I walk up to the bar and the bartender looks me up and down I have to admit she looks familiar. She has tanned skin, bluish- black long hair, and is a little taller than me, she’s got a stern expression but for some reason I feel like she’s the perfect person to talk to.
"Can I speak to Lucifer Morningstar, please?" I ask, she looked a little disappointed but proceeds to continue making her drink while still eyeing me.
"He’s not here" she tells me.
"Oh, when will he be back?" I ask politely.
"Don’t know" she shrugs. "He left 5 years ago and hasn’t returned since" she tells me nonchalantly.
"WHAT?" I yell, but the loud music drowns me out.
"No!" I whisper to myself, why would they send me here?
"Why? You looking to have some fun with him?" she asks making me scrunch my nose in disgust.
"Eww! No! I have to ask him a few things" I reply trying not to throw up in my mouth after that remark.
"Like that?" she laughs while nodding towards my body. I try to cover myself subconsciously with my arms
"Well… no… I was hoping to find some clothes first" I mumble as I realise I am sitting in a bar, completely naked, surrounded by drunk idiots, who wouldn’t mind taking advantage of me. Luckily I’m divine if I weren’t I’d be their toy.
"Also quick question where exactly am I?" I ask while sipping on the water she had kindly placed in front of me.
She laughs, ‘Sweetheart you’re in LA in one of the biggest most popular nightclubs, America can offer’
"Okay thank you" I turn around to leave.
"Wait!" I hear and stop.
"Oh, right sorry I have to pay don't I? But I-"
Before I can continue the bartender comes rushing towards me. I look at her confused before she turns me around and moves me hair over my shoulder she touches my back making me wince.
"A-are you...?" she asks and I remember the wounds of my cut wings, ah shit!
Before I can say anything she pulls me with her. We go upstairs and enter a room. She pins me to the wall and draws a dagger out that looks like half a wing, "Who are you?" she asks, her eyes ablaze.
"If I tell you… you won’t… believe me" I struggle to say as her forearm digs into my throat.
"I’m Lucifer’s daughter" I say.
"WHAT?" she yells stepping back making me fall on my knees coughing.
"Y-you’re Aradia?" she asks, a lone tear slowly drops from her eye.
I look up panting a little as the air returns to my lungs. A small smile appears on her lips as she slowly pulls me up and into a hug wrapping her arms around me.
"I’m so sorry sweetheart, Amenadiel told me about you but I wasn’t expecting this" she says.
"It’s okay, but I’m really sorry I have no idea who you are" I apologise.
"I’m Mazikeen, or Maze" she introduces herself.
"Ohh! No wonder I recognised you! You were Dad’s favourite demon back in Hell" I say finally remembering Uncle Amenadiel telling me about her and that she was the perfect person to approach when it comes to anything to do with Dad.
She nods smiling, "What can I do for you, my dear?" she asks.
‘Aunt Maze… can I call you Aunt Maze?’
Maze nods smiling.
"I’m here to look for Dad. I’m hoping to give him a surprise as well as to bring him back home" I say with a smile.
Maze laughs, "Honey, I was trying for 15 years before your Dad decided to up and leave one day. It’s been 5 years and I honestly have no idea where he is but what I do know is that he’ll get the shock of his life when he sees you"
"Yeah.. that’s the hope" I laugh nervously.
"Are you coming back?" I ask and she brushes my hair out of my face.
"When Lucifer returns so will I" she promises.
I nod smiling but shiver as the cold air hits me, "I don’t suppose now I could have some clothes" I chuckle making Maze’s eyes widen.
"Oh my… give me one minute" she says and leaves before quickly coming back with some undergarments and a long t-shirt.
"Thank you" I say and proceed to head to the shower, the hot water runs down my back making me hiss in pain as my wounds are still fresh. Once I’m done I wrap a towel around myself and proceed to blow-dry my hair. I put on the clothes given and walk out of the room. The smell of food instantly hits me. I didn’t realise how hungry I was until I started drooling looking at the neatly laid table.
After scoffing the food I decide to lay down and rest. Before I know it the soft bedsheets and the memory-foam mattress are enough to lull me to sleep. I know I’m in the mortal world and I know I’m here to find my Dad but where do I find him?
How do I find him?
He could be anywhere in this world how am I supposed to know his exact location?
I wake up to the sun hitting me in my face. I stretch and yawn before remembering where I am. My name is Aradia Morningstar and I am in LA. My Father is no where to be found and I am on a mission to find him.
"Good morning" I hear and see Aunt Maze walking in with a tray of waffles and pancakes.
"Good morning" I reply and thank her for the food.
I walk in the bathroom, brush my teeth, wash my face, and walk back in my room to eat breakfast.
"So I have some good news for you" Aunt Maze says as she sits down on the end of my bed watching me stuff my face with waffles until I look like a Squirrel.
"What?" I ask.
"I found your Dad" she tells me before I choke.
"Seriously?" I ask and start jumping up and down in excitement.
"Yayyy! Where is he?" I ask.
"He’s in Tokyo" she tells me and I look at her confused.
"What the bloody hell is he doing there?" I ask.
"Beats me. But, that’s where he is" she shrugs.
"Okay I’m going to Tokyo!" I say getting up, determined.
"Okay, I’ll have your passport and other documents ready" she tells me.
"Why? I can teleport" I shrug but then reality comes crashing down on me as I realise I no longer have my wings, "Oh… right" I say.
"Don’t be sad, sweetheart" Maze says placing her hand under my chin and making me look up.
"I have a feeling you’re gonna enjoy this" she winks before I exhale.
"Okay" I nod.
"That’s my girl" she ruffles my hair before getting up.
I proceed to eat while complaining to God about my decision. I bet everyone up there is laughing at me now and again I don’t blame them, I would too. But right now it’s time to do what I came here to do, find Dad.
And that peeps is how my adventure in Tokyo started.
