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 finds her Dad and goes to meet him*
Aradia: “Are you, Lucifer Morningstar?”
Lucifer: “The one and only”
*She hugs him before he pushes her away*
Lucifer: “What the Hell?”
Aradia: “Oh sorry where are my manners?”
Aradia: “I’m Aradia. Your daughter”
Lucifer: “You must be mistaken. I do not have a daughter”
*She then shows him her wings and he invites her inside for a little bit more information*
Aradia: “When you went to LA and cut off your wings, one of those feathers ended up making its way back to Heaven. From there I was… created would be a good word. Grandad and Uncle Amenadiel took care of me before I was claimed Ruler of Hell. And despite my lack of taste in expensive liquor, I am your Daughter”
Lucifer: “I’m sorry but you’re not my daughter. Yes you’re a celestial but you’re definitely NOT mine because as I said before, celestials cannot procreate. And this is probably another one of my Father’s plans to bring me back home. And I’m NOT going!”
*Dejected Aradia goes back to Lux*
Maze: “So, are you going to tell me why you were crying over the phone? And why were you crying downstairs?”
*Aradia tells her everything and breaks down for the umpteenth time that day*
Maze: “I am killing that detective first and then going for Lucifer”
Aradia: “Please, Aunt Maze. Dad will come around eventually and the detective… I… I love him!”
I woke up feeling really groggy. The sun shining in my face is really not helping the massive headache I’m feeling. I decide to stay in bed for a few more minutes before I change my mind and get up.
I go to the bathroom and freshen up before going downstairs.
“Good morning, Miss Morningstar” I hear someone say and turn to see a bartender.
“Good morning and call me Aradia” I tell him.
He smiles nodded and goes back to the glass he was cleaning before swinging the dishcloth over his shoulder.
“So, what can I get you?” he asks.
“Have anything non-alcoholic?” I ask with a slight chuckle.
“Coming right up” he says with a smile.
He mixes up a few things and passes me a drink.
“Virgin Pina Colada” he says.
“I feel bad for that Pina Colada” I say before taking a sip.
Oh my. That is good.
I look up to see the bartender giving me a weird look with a half-smile.
“Oh I just meant that…”
“Because the Pina Colada is a Virgin? Yeah I know” he winks making me chuckle.
“Right. And thank you so much for this. It’s amazing!” I say and raise the glass before turning around and walking towards the sofa.
I look around for Aunt Maze but she’s no where to be seen. Thinking that she had a Bounty to catch I decide to relax.
The drink in my hand and the music playing really go hand in hand. I didn’t realise this before but now that I sit here and really pay attention to my surroundings, I see that Lux has a sort of playful yet erotic vibe.
“Hey” I hear someone say and turn to see a; I’ll admit really cute guy.
“Hi” I smile a little.
“Never seen you here before” he says coming up real close to me.
“Yeah. I’ve been away on business” I reply, not interested at all, before taking a sip of my drink.
“Oh? How about we go back to my place and have some fun?” he asks, plucking the drink from my hands.
“No thanks” I say, a little uncomfortable at the closeness.
Besides, I can smell the alcohol in his breath.
Geez! Mate it’s 10 O’ Clock in the morning!
Before he can say anything else someone grabs him from behind, picking him up from the collar and lifting him from the ground.
“Dad?” I say, surprised.
What’s he doing here?
I look around and finally spot Aunt Maze who is looking at me with a smirk.
I turn my gaze back to Dad whose eyes are now red, “If I see you anywhere near my Daughter or Lux again, I’ll make you regret the day you ever set foot on this Earth” he warns.
He drops the guy who scrambles across the floor before leaving the building.
What just happened?
I’m still trying to figure out what happened when I feel someone take my hands in theirs. I look down to see Dad holding my hands.
“Are you okay?” he asks, his voice soft.
I look up at him and see guilt, he’s looking in my eyes as if searching for something, I slowly nod still trying to wrap my head around everything.
Did he just say, ‘My daughter’?
“Good” he says before I see tears in his eyes.
“Oh, Dad” I say and sit closer wrapping my arms around his torso and placing my head on his chest.
This time he hugs me back, placing his chin on top of my head. He hugs me tight and places multiple kisses on my forehead.
“I’m really sorry, sweetheart” he says.
His voice quivers and I can hear the guilt in it.
“It’s okay. I’m just glad you’ve accepted me” I smile with a sniff.
He pulls away and cups my face looking in my eyes, again. This time a huge smile breaks out on his face.
“I’m really sorry, for what I said back in Tokyo. It was out of line and I shouldn’t have said that” I say looking down.
“Hey” Dad says making me look up at him.
“You weren’t wrong. If I were in your place I would have said or done something much worse… actually come to think of it I have. I left Hell and I came here. But before that I did rage a war on Heaven so I guess we’re even” he chuckles making me laugh.
We look at each other and couldn’t stop laughing, I wipe my face with the back of my hand.
“Why did you say you went through an emotional rollercoaster?” I finally ask.
Dad slowly stops laughing and looks at me with a sad expression.
He opens his arm inviting me in, I place my head on his chest and he wraps his arm around me, as if protecting me.
I could get used to this.
“When I came to LA obviously I established my business but a few years later I met a woman. She was absolutely amazing! Kind, smart, beautiful. She was a Detective for the LAPD. I loved her more than anything and anyone. I didn’t realise I loved her until my friend was murdered and she was working the case. We solved it together and I became a consultant for the LAPD. About 5 years later we finally got together, but we got caught in a crossfire and I failed to protect her. She died in my arms. Everything about LA reminded me of her so I left and went to Tokyo” Dad explains.
I felt something wet on my head and when I looked up at him he was crying. I gave him a hug and wiped his tears.
He sniffs and wipes his tears.
“So what did you mean when you went through an emotional rollercoaster?” he asks
I chuckle slightly and take a deep breath.
“When I arrived at Tokyo I saved a girl from a bunch of guys, she let me crash at her place and soon she became like a little sister to me. A month later she also died after getting shot by a gang member of the biggest gang in Tokyo, the ‘Scorpion’ gang, during a bank robbery, later on I found out that she was a part of that gang before but because she fled they were on her tail, those were the guys I saved her from, anyways I also met a detective and we both started to look into the gang. The detective had a wife who was killed by the gang and he also has a daughter, a cute little girl, Anya. Anya was kidnapped by the gang and the detective and I went to go rescue her, thanks to Aunt Maze we found their location. I showed my Devil face and I scared the Detective to the point where he said he doesn’t want to see me again” I tell him my entire Tokyo experience.
By the time I’m finished I can feel Dad’s grip around my shoulder’s tighten a little. I’m sobbing on his shoulder and kinda ruining his Armani suit.
“I’m so sorry, Darling” Dad says.
He looks down and wipes my face before kissing the top of my head again.
“When she saw my Devil face she left for a few months to go to Italy” Dad chuckles remembering.
I chuckle and play with my necklace.
‘Like Father, Like Daughter” we both say at the same time before we burst out laughing again.
I love this!
“Dad” I say sitting up and looking at him.
“Yes?” he asks brushing my hair out of my face.
“You won’t leave me again will you?” I ask.
I feel like a small child instead of a 20- years-old adult.
He gives me a sad look and sits up as he was leaning against the back of the sofa before.
“I promise. I’m not going anywhere. I’ve already missed the first 20 years of my Daughter’s life I’m not gonna miss anymore” he reassures me.
He then takes my hand in his and makes me look at him.
“But I want you to tell me something. Now we’re both the devil so we can’t lie” he says making me chuckle.
“But still I want the truth”
I nod promising to tell him the truth, only the truth, nothing but the truth.
“Do you love him?” he asks catching me off guard.
I look down and nod.
“I do. I do love him. I love him so much it hurts, Dad. It really hurts” I say and feel a lump form in my throat.
I would cry again but I think my tears have all dried up.
Dad hugs me again and this time it’s comforting but protective.
“You’re not a monster, Aradia. And I never want to hear you say that again. You’re more angel than I am. When I first arrived I only thought about myself but you, you thought about everyone and didn’t even once think about yourself or the danger you could be putting yourself into. Loving someone means allowing yourself to be vulnerable around them and I know you could’ve gotten seriously hurt” he says.
“Yeah well..” I shrug.
“You got hurt?” he asks seriously.
“Just shot once… maybe twice…” I say giving Dad a toothy grin.
“WHAT?!” he yells
“I’m going to kill them all!” his eyes were Red.
“Dad, please calm down. I’m fine”
He calms down and his eyes return to the dark brown shade.
“Yes, well. I’m glad you’re okay. But as I was saying, You are worthy of love, Sweetheart. And if I hear you say anything like that again… then… then…” he tries to think of a punishment.
“You can put me in timeout” I say.
“Yes I’ll…” he realises what I said and looks at me trying to hide my smile.
He chuckles and shakes his head.
“You really are my daughter”
Yes I am and Aunt Maze you really are aMAZEing!
