Roman BENEATH HER DARKNESS: The Alpha's Little Demon chapitre Chapitre 4

***FLASHBACK.***

Underworld.

Lucy - 13 years old.

LUCY.

My hands were too red and itchy now. I’d been doing target shooting using fire for the last hour and I was getting tired of it. I blew up the whole line of target range before I walked out of the pit where I was practicing. I reminded my mentor, Gargon, not to say a word to my father, or I would blow up his face next time.

No. I was not scared of anyone. Despite my stubbornness, I was my father’s favorite. He doted on me and no one was allowed to touch me. But I didn’t say I didn’t get punished - I did. But only he was allowed to punish me.

I jumped over the hurdles of fire before I was able to reach the fields that smelled like burned coals and grounds. Demons take pleasure in smelling anything that burns, especially flesh being burned, and although I didn’t fancy it, I was getting used to it by now.

Another boring day. I wondered when my father would take me to see other creatures again. My father’s capacity to travel in between realms was the only thing that interested me in this place because when he took me with him, I got to meet interesting beings.

I was already halfway to the hot spring where I planned to spend my free time when I noticed a light glowing from behind the dark, ruined building as if many bulbs had been installed there.

This place has always been dark, so I got curious.

"Who are you?" I asked. The female who had her back to me had glorious shiny black hair that ended below her bum. And despite not carrying anything, she was glowing, as if the lights were radiating from inside her skin.

The female slowly turned around, and I found myself face-to-face with the most beautiful female I had ever laid my eyes on. I had seen the Goddess of Chaos. She was beautiful in her own way, but the one in front of me was beyond beautiful like she was ethereal. She definitely didn’t belong in the Underworld.

"Hello, little wolf…" And her voice was like a soft lullaby.

My eyes widened as I stepped back when the words she used to greet me sank in. Only a few knew of the wolf within me because my father made sure of that.

"How did you know?" I asked, my brows slightly furrowing.

"Because I know you…"

"Who are you?"

"They call me Selene…"

"You have a beautiful name."

"And you have a beautiful one too…"

I smiled at her but I didn’t know what to say more.

"Do you like it here?" She asked, and her eyes showed sincerity with her question.

"Did my father ask you to ask me?"

"No."

"Will you tell him my answer?"

"No. It’s a secret I will keep for the rest of my days…"

I smiled at her. I didn’t know why, but I felt I could trust her. "No. I don’t want to be here."

"I understand. Do you know who I am?"

I shook my head before I spoke. "Are you a friend of my father?"

She giggled softly, which made her hair sway, and everything around us just lit up. "Your father never liked me. But we’re not enemies... We just... don’t get along."

"Oh… Are you one of the Goddesses of the Underworld?"

"No. I am the Goddess of the Moon."
