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…’

Aradia: “Thank you Sakura-chan”
Sakura: “You’re welcome”
Aradia: “What’s up?”
Sakura: “I just miss my parents”
Aradia: “As far as their murderers are concerned, well they’ll have a nice little surprise in Hell, I’ll make sure of it
Sakura: “How do you know?”
Aradia: “Because that’s where all the bad people go don’t they?”
Sakura: “So, what about your parents?”
Aradia: “My family is complicated”
Sakura: “Oh, how come?”
Aradia: “I never really knew my parents”
*Aradia surprises herself by crying*
Sakura: “Aradia-san, you helped me so I’m gonna help you find your Dad”
Aradia: “Thank you”
*Sakura hugs Aradia who pats her head in return*
It’s been about a month since I’ve come Earth and met Sakura and we’ve gotten closer than ever. She’s like the little sister I’ve never had and I finally feel like I belong. I even have a job to blend in a café not too far from home. Home. It has a nice ring to it. I actually feel like I finally found a place where I belong. Where I don’t have to worry about anything other than Dad.
I have learned a lot about the Human world and I even have a phone. What. I know a phone. I never knew how useful these things are until I got one. I can take pictures. I can play games. I can even call someone and hear them talk and they can hear me as well even if we’re really far away from each other.
Oh and you’re gonna be proud of me. I kept my identity a secret. No one knows I’m the Devil’s daughter. No one knows I’m the ruler of Hell… or at least have been for the past 20 years since the original ruler of Hell decided to skip town. Anyways back to this.
“So, what are the plans for today Aradia-san?”
“I have to work today as I’m covering for someone. What about you?”
“I have to go to the Supermarket first and then the bank before going to School” she tells me.
Sakura is training to be a teacher at the local school, personally I think that job suits her she’s so good with kids.
“Oh okay. Want me to come with you?” I ask.
Sakura shook her head, ‘No, it’s okay. I’ll be fine”
“Are you sure?” I asked.
“Yes, Aradia-san, I’ll be fine, I promise” she giggled.
“Okay. Take care alright” I tell her as she makes her way to the door to leave.
She left me home alone as I started getting ready myself. But, for some reason I couldn’t shake off the strange feeling. I felt as if something was going to happen. Something, bad. Maybe I’m just overthinking and it’s not that bad.
But I seriously feel like something bad is going to happen. I don’t know why I just can’t jerk off this feeling. Maybe I should stay home, yeah maybe I should just take a day off. Besides I deserve it, I’ve been working my butt off this whole week
No wait I can’t! I told my boss that I would be working today. I need to cover for my co-worker and its not fair that I would be unloading my work as well as someone else’s onto another co-worker.
Aradia since when are you so indecisive? You’re becoming more human as you live among them.
Keeping all those negative thoughts aside I pack my bag and wear my uniform consisting of a black dress that reaches my thighs with a white shirt underneath and an apron around my waist, black dress shoes and a black headband.
I put my long, brown hair in a ponytail and winged my eyeliner
Get it? I winged my eyeliner
Stop embarrassing yourself Aradia! It’s actually quite sad.
I finished my makeup and grabbed my wallet, phone, and keys before double-checking I closed and locked the doors as well as making sure the windows were all closed as well as the gates.
It was 8:45 when I left the house meaning I had 15 minutes to get to work, I took my time as it was only a 5-minute walk and got there at 8:55 exactly.
“Morning everyone” I greeted my co-workers and boss.
“Morning” came the reply as I made my way to the back to grab a cup of tea and sneak one of those yummy, glazed donuts.
I swear Sakura got me into them and I must’ve had a whole box in a week, they were so yummy! How have I never had these before?
Maybe because you spent the last 20 years ruling Hell!
Once it was 9:00 the doors opened for the customers. We usually have a slow start but by the time it’s 11 people start filling in like this is the only café in the neighbourhood. Oh wait! It is the only café in the neighbourhood.
I love my job though. I get to meet so many new people and some of them are regulars. Some come alone or with a group of friends and some come as couples. We have specials for couples where they can have a milkshake with two straws, ‘Bringing you closer milkshake’ is what we call it, because it keeps the two people who are sitting opposite each other close as they have to lean in to drink.
Cute, right? Why wouldn’t it be? I’m the one who thought of it!
But when I look at these couples I can’t help but think how nice it would be if I had someone. I always see my co-workers with their boyfriends/ girlfriends and they’re all so cute. The way they care for each other. The way they show affection by hugging or kissing or whatever couples do.
To be honest I’ve never had a relationship which lasted longer than one night. And by the time it’s the next morning I’ve already forgotten the guy’s name. Not that I’m interested in someone whose only interesting in sleeping with me. Like seriously mate I’m more than just a hot piece of ass! Anyways you get the point of my rant.
Sakura’s single as well. I don’t know how though she’s so cute. But the only guys who want to be with her never have the right intentions. She deserves a prince and I’m gonna make sure my little sister gets just that! She’s too innocent and too pure for this cruel world, so I’ve made it my job to protect her while I’m still here, and I’m gonna make sure that she finds someone before I got back because I need to make sure she’s okay.
“Hey, did you hear, some gang has held a bank hostage”
I was on my way to give two men their order when I heard their conversation.
“WHAT?” I yelled and lost my balance, knocking over the cup of coffee that was sitting in front of the man sitting on my right, in his lap.
“Ahhh” he got up screaming but I didn’t care! All I cared was the fact that some gang held everyone in a bank hostage! Sakura was one of them.
I quickly ran to the back and grabbed my phone. My hands were shaking as I tried to ring Sakura.
“Pick up. Pick up. Pick up”
I was panicking as I dialled and redialled and redialled over and over and over again.
“Fuck this!” I yelled and quickly grabbed my stuff and dashed out of the café.
I ran faster and faster; the bank was 15 minutes away from the café but I made it in 5. I saw police officers and people crowding around the outside of the bank as I tried to get inside, a guy grabbed my arm.
“Stop! You cannot go inside!”
“No! You don’t understand my sister is in there” I told him as I tried to pry my arm from his tight hold.
“Nothing will happen to her”
Just then gunshots were heard.
“They’re firing!” we heard someone yell.
I felt the ground shake beneath my feet as I lost my balance for the second time that day, luckily the man caught me before I hit the ground.
“Whoa! Steady now. Are you okay?” he asked as he held me close to his chest.
I shook my head, “M-my sister” I told him as I pointed towards the bank.
Gunshots were fired for the second time before I got my senses and got up. I have to go inside. I’m immortal! I can protect them all damn it!
“Let me go” I told the guy before making my way to the bank before he grabbed me again.
“Stop! I can’t let you go inside! Just trust the process! Everyone will be fine!”
“Fuck the process! My sister is inside! I have to know if she’s okay” I told him.
A few more vehicles pull up and armed men quickly stepped out. They used something before breaking the door down and entered. A few minutes later everyone started running out. I was so relieved when I saw Sakura running out safely.
“Sakura!” I yelled.
She broke into a sprint when she saw me, I opened my arms and she ran straight into me, we were both trembling like leaves. I don’t know what I would do if something were to happen to her! I would probably bring Hell right here if I could but I am going to make sure these fuckers get a special place in Hell.
“Are you okay? They didn’t hurt you did they? I swear I will…”
“Relax, Aradia-san I’m fine no one did anything” she told me.
I hugged her tightly.
“Come on! Let’s go home” I tell her.
I pick up my stuff which were on the floor and remember that guy who stopped me from going in. I should probably apologise for the way I reacted.
“What’s wrong?” Sakura asked.
“No, I just wanted to apologise to someone. When you were trapped inside I wanted to go in but this guy stopped me. He told me not to worry and I was rude to him. I just wanted to say I was sorry before we went home. Who knows if we might meet again or not…” I told her.
Sakura looked at me and gave me a weird smile, she folded her arms.
“What?” I asked.
“You want to apologise? To a guy? Was he… cute?” she winked.
“I didn’t notice” I turned to the side but I couldn’t stop the heat from rising to my cheeks.
“Oooh” she winked making me smack her arm playfully.
“Shush and come on” I tell her.
“Wait!” we hear and turn around to see one of the masked men grabbing the gun from a Police officer.
He then points it towards us, I can handle it no worries but what I didn’t expect was for the gunshot to be heard but blood to splatter all over me not mine but…
