Suddenly Callisto snapped her eyes wide open, picked Naira up and jumped backwards, avoiding a projectile just in time. Somebody was attacking! Callisto hissed and looked with a glare at the attacker. "Hey! Watch where you're swinging that thing!" Naira's eyes widened as she looked at the object. It was a familiar dagger like thing attached to something that looked like a grey snake. But then Naira took a closer look…and noticed it was a tail! A very familiar looking tail. "I can swing my tail wherever I want, now-" A gasp escaped the teenager's lips as her suspicions were confirmed. There she was, Valendra…fully transformed and she looked like a volcano ready to explode. Her eyes were spitting fire and her mouth was drawn back into a snarl. "I want you to get your dirty hands of my uncle's pet. And do it quick, before I rip them off…angel."
Callisto's calm attitude remained, although her eyes dangerously narrowed. "Don't you dare to call Naira a pet…" She said with her calm, but icy cold voice. Valendra grinned as she retracted her tail. Did Naira's eyes play tricks on her or did the demon's tail shrink?! The tail dangerously swayed from one side to another, looking like a snake ready to attack. "Oh? So I can't call the pet a pet? Then what should I call her? Slave? Toy? Object? What do you think Callisto-chan?~" The angel narrowed her eyes even more. Naira couldn't help, but have the feeling these two have met before. Gently Callisto put Naira on the ground and stood protectively in front of her. "Well how shall I call you then? Brat? Rat? Perhaps low-born dog, just like your mother." Valendra's previous smirk instantly disappeared. Her eyes widened for a moment before they spit fire the next second. She was furious- no! Enraged! "WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY MOTHER?!!!"
Oh now she's pissed.Within the fraction of a second the demon's tail extended and flew right at Callisto! However, the angel was fast too. Just as fast as the demon, did two magnificent wings burst out of her jacket and spread. One moment she was standing on the ground, the next she was floating in the air. And somewhere along that she had grabbed Naira and was now holding her bridal style. "Oh? Did I just hit a nerve perhaps?" The angel's lips twisted into a feline smirk.
Valendra growled in pure frustration. Air was angel's their domain and since demons couldn't fly they were at a disadvantage…but Valendra had a solution for that. A sly grin spread on her lips as she looked at the albino. "You're not safe in the air, little birdie!" In a mere second her tail extended tremendously! Naira's eyes widened in astonishment as she softly gasped. "That's insane!" The demon extended her tail so much that it was able to reach the angel in the air! Callisto avoided being stabbed in the chest at the very the last moment, but got wounded at one of her wings though. She hissed as she glared at the demon. Naira's too heavy, I can't fly as fast as I normally can.
Callisto then got an idea. She flew over to a tree and put the girl onto a big tree branch. "Naira! Give me back my bracelets, I'm defenceless like this!" Naira's eyes widened as she realised she was right. "Ah, s-sorry! I'll give them back to you." She said as she reached for the bracelets in the pocket of her hoodie. But just when she was about to hand them over to the angel, Valendra's deadly tail shot in between them, cutting Callisto's shoulder. The angel winced in pain and avoided just in time another attack, but because of that she also had to create some space in between her and Naira. Valendra looked furious up at Naira. "Takemaru! Are you stupid or something?! Why would you give weapons to the enemy?! This way I can easily pulverize her!"
Callisto tried to avoid the next attack, but the demon was too fast. Valendra's tail wrapped tightly around the angel's body and like an anaconda it started to squeeze the woman's body…she would soon squeeze the life out of her. Naira gasped as she looked horrified at what was happening. "Valendra, stop it!" The demon ignored her however and continued with her torture. A loud maniacally laugh escaped Valendra's lips as she squeezed even harder. "How does that feel Callisto?! Do I take your breath away?!! Ahahahaha!!!" As Valendra tightened her grip, Callisto gasped for air. It seemed hopeless, there was no way she could escape…or was there? The angel growled and looked at the tail, it was almost entirely wrapped around her body, even over her chin and thus it was close. I'll show you, you brat! And with all her might the angel bit down on the tail, causing a nasty and painful wound. Valendra shrieked in surprise and pain, her grip on Callisto loosened for a moment. This is my chance! The angel took the opportunity to claw her way out of the tail and took off in the air. Her whole body hurt from the squeezing and the earlier attacks, but now she was really riled up. Defeat was not an option. It was killed or be killed! "Callisto!" Naira called out to the angel. Swiftly the albino turned around and saw the teenager threw something at her. Callisto caught it just in time and noticed to her surprise, that it were her bracelets. A smirk spread on her lips as she looked at the girl. "Thank you sweetheart!" She said with a wink before focusing back at Valendra. The demon girl glared at Naira, she looked like she was about to explode. "Naira, you idiot!"
Callisto softly chuckled and changed the bracelets into her beloved spears again. "What's the matter? Can't the big bad anaconda handle a small fragile birdie?" The angel asked mockingly. Valendra was about to say something, but never got the chance to do so. Like an eagle the angel dove and attacked the demon, piercing both of her spears right into the demon's shoulders. Valendra gasped in pain before a low growl escaped her lips. "You…can't kill me that easily…" Callisto gasped as the blade of Valendra's tail pierced right through her arm. It hurt! It hurt really bad, but she wasn't planning on letting go! Instead she twisted her spears, causing rather nasty wounds and tremendous pain. Valendra screamed, those holy weapons would seal her fate if she wasn't able to get them out of her shoulders! The demon started to clumsily trash around, claw and bite. She wasn't going to give up yet!
Callisto had noticed earlier, that the demon's moves got sloppier and more reckless when she was upset…and thus she would use that weakness against her. The angel laughed a mocking laugh. "Is that all you got?!Ha! You're as weak and pathetic as your indecent mother!" That comment made Valendra lose it, the time of thinking was over, she was now going to use brute force…and that gave her an disadvantage when facing an opponent like Callisto. The albino was an angel, but her sly tricks and manipulative nature resembled those of a demon. Valendra started to swing mindlessly her tail around, she was growling like a wild animal. Callisto easily avoided the sloppy attacks, but suddenly froze in her spot. The demon, who was moving on pure instinct laughed and swung her tail at the angel. "Got you!!" Callisto remained calm and at the last fraction of a second, right before she would get hit by that deadly tail, she moved to the right…and Valendra's tail got stuck in a big tree trunk. The demon's eyes widened in panic. "She tricked me!" Frantically she tried to retract her tail, but alas it was stuck! The girl even started to pull at it with her bare hands. "It's true that I tricked you. Tch I can't believe you fell for that, that trick's as old as the hills." Valendra clumsily turned around and held her breath when she saw the angel, floating in the air, only a few meters away. Callisto's eyes dangerously narrowed, her eyes were as cold as her voice. This was an entire different woman then before. Callisto was quite a kind and fun person to hang around with, but in battle she was a nasty vixen you would rather avoid than fight. Her fellow angels even gave her a nickname: the Ice Queen.
"Your pride and temper got the upper hand over you and because of that-" The angel transformed her spears into a sword, she was about to give the final blow. "-you will have to the pay the ultimate price." Callisto charged at high speed, she raised her arms into the air… "Death!" Valendra's eyes widened in horror as she watched the sunlight reflect on the sword's blade. Fast! Adrenaline pumped through her veins and at the very last second she made a desperate move. Callisto noticed it but it was already too late. Instead of chopping of the demon's head the blade buried itself into the girl's hands. The angel's eyes widened. This girl stopped her attack by simply grabbing the blade! The devil's niece for sure! Valendra growled, blood dripping down her badly wounded hands. She pushed Callisto's sword away and swung her bleeding hand at the angel. Callisto gasped as some of the girls blood hit her eyes, she was blinded for a moment and dropped her sword out of surprise. "I will not die! I WILL NOT DIE!!!" The demon took advantage of the angel's temporary blindness, grabbed her by her shoulders and sank her sharp teeth into the tender flesh. Then she started to tear the flesh away, like a starving mad beast! Callisto screamed in both pain and surprise. The angel quickly regained her composure though. Like a cat she clawed at the demon's face, neck, arms and anything she could get her hands on!
In the meanwhile Naira was watching the horrifying scene. Blood splattered around everywhere, it looked like one of those horror movies Naira liked so much. Though she didn't feel joy nor excitement at the moment. Only fear and disgust. They're going to kill each other! The teenager clenched one of her small hands over her heart as she tried to stop the two. "Stop it! Stop!! You're going to kill each other!!" However the two didn't listen and continued with their bloody fight. They looked like two battling lions and Naira knew they would fight to the death. "Stop it!" No more! No more blood! No more deaths! Please no more! She could see them, flashbacks from that night five years ago…the metallic smell of blood, the wet sound of blood dripping down onto the ground, the petrifying screams of dying innocent little girls, breaking bones, exploding organs… "I don't wanna die! I DON'T WANNA DIE!!!" Tears rolled down the girls cheeks as she felt her body swaying, she was feeling light headed…she wanted to throw up. I have to stop them!
"STOP IT!!!" She screamed at the top of her longs. This time the two females froze in their spot and looked bewildered up at the girl. Tears were rolling unstoppable down her cheeks, she looked like a frightened little girl. "Please…stop it. I don't… want neither of you …to die…" She managed to say in between her sobs. Valendra was so surprised that she pulled back from Callisto's shoulder and the angel in return stopped with clawing. They were both covered with bruises, nasty wounds and blood. Callisto stared at the human girl for a long silent moment. Somehow, seeing that girl, that little human girl, crying…broke the angel's heart. Just what does this girl do to me…I'm growing soft. The angel hissed and pushed the demon away from her. "Tch fine…I'll leave, for now…" Naira blinked surprised her eyes. Did she just hear that? Was the angel willing to give up her pride just for her? "Callisto…" A small but grateful smile spread on the teenager's lips as she looked at the angel. "Thank you…" The angel smiled back and nodded her head.
Valendra in the meanwhile was internally a mess, her mind was a chaos as the adrenaline was still racing through her veins. It wasn't over yet! This wasn't over yet! That angel! That bitch! She will pay for this! The demon turned to look at Naira and her eyes dangerously narrowed. You too Naira, I'll punish you for this! Suddenly a sly smirk spread on the girl's lips.
"Naira! You traitor!" Everything that happened after that happened in a matter of mere seconds. Valendra pulled with a might yank her tail out of the tree trunk, extended it and swung it at Naira. The teenager didn't have the time to move, not even to gasp. She was fast! Naira was about to close her eyes and braced herself for the tail to cut her…but the pain never came. "N-no…" She whispered breathlessly…blood dripped down onto the tree branch. Horrified Naira stared at the wound…in Callisto's stomach. The angel took a raspy breath and looked down at the tail that was pierced through her belly. Valendra's grin nearly split her face in two as she retracted her tail. Blood splattered all around…even on Naira's face. Callisto parted her lips, wanting to say something…but then her body swayed…and she fell…
The sound of a body crashing into the ground echoed through Naira's ears. The human's eyes widened in total horror before she creamed the angel's name. "Callisto!!!" Valendra laughed a maniacal laugh as she looked at the angel's body. "I got you! I got you! This time it was I, who tricked YOU! You are so obvious, I just knew that you would protect that human! Ha! Well serves you right for making fun of me, you bitch!" Then she looked up at the shocked Naira and grinned. "Yes that's right! Take a good look Naira, because this is your fault! This is your punishment for betraying uncle and me!"
The demon girl walked over to Callisto's body, the angel was slightly moving. Her fingers curled and stretched in a desperate move, as if trying to grasp something. A wicked chuckle rolled over Valendra's lips as she raised her foot in the air. "I will crush that pretty little head of yours~"
Naira looked horrified at the scene. She knew the demon was about to crush Callisto's skull underneath her foot. Callisto saved me…she saved my life…s-she used herself as my shield…and it's all my fault. It's because of she got wounded. Valendra snickered and licked her licks, longing to see the angel's crushed head. "I'll feast on your brains tonight ahahahaha!"
"Stop it…" Valendra raised her foot a little higher… "STOP!!!" The demon lowered her foot with all her might, but never reached her target. Valendra gasped for air when she received out of nowhere a powerful kick in her left side. It was so powerful that she was actually thrown a few meters away! With a loud thud the girl crashed with her face into the ground. Groaning the demon raised herself up and spat some blood. Surprised the girl wiped the blood from her mouth and looked up to see, who attacked her. "No way!" She exclaimed shocked as she looked at her attacker.
It was Naira…although, no…not Naira. It was Naira's body …but not Naira's spirit. Chills ran down Valendra's spine as she looked at the teenager's face. Those eyes…those cruel and cold piercing embers…they looked like they belonged to a demon! What's going on?! That attack was so fast! Naira can't be that fast! She must've jumped down that tree, ran over to us and then kicked me in about three seconds! No human can ever move that fast! Unless… "So that's one of the powers uncle gave you…Pretty impressive, although that they don't suit a mere human"
The teenager narrowed her eyes. "This mere human is the one who just kicked yar lousy ass." Another chill ran down Valendra's spine when she heard that deep cold voice. That accent…Scottish? The demon's cheeks heated up in embarrassment and angrily she bit her lip. "You just took me by surprise you bitch! Besides, you're a traitor just like that other idiot. You just saved the enemy, you saved that angel! Just you wait, I'm going to tell uncle all about i-" But the demon was silenced when a fist hit her right in the face. Valendra yelped in pain and covered her bleeding nose with her hands. She got hit, again! By this human! This stupid human! The demon didn't have much time to think about it though. All of a sudden the teenager grabbed the demon by her throat and lifted her up in the air. Valendra struggled and growled as she looked down at the human…and right into those icy cold eyes. "Listen and listen well ya brat. First of all my name is Emet and that 'other idiot' is Naira. Second ya're not gonna tell yar uncle about any of this, if ya do then I'll make yar death as agonising as I can think of and trust me, I have a lot of imagination." Valendra growled and bared her teeth at the human. "Go to hell."
A loud and cold laugh rolled over Emet's lips as she dropped Valendra to the ground. Her laugh was loud and clear like thunder, echoing in Valendra's ears. "Oh trust me ya lil' rat, hell doesn't want me!" Emet said as she kicked the demon in her side. Valendra gasped and rolled away, landing with her face flat against the ground. Suddenly the demon felt a pressure on the back of her head, burying her face even more into the ground. She quickly realised it was Emet's foot on top of her head. "I've been observing ya…I saw everything through Naira's eyes and ya know what? Ya irritate me to no end. I hate spoiled lil' brats like ya, but don't ya worry. I'll beat that bratiness out of ya." Suddenly the weight on her head disappeared only to be replaced by another powerful kick in her side. The demon gasped, she was now laying on her back, blood was streaming down her chin and nose. How was this possible? This girl, this human! How dared she! How dared she humiliate her like this? She was the devil's niece for hell's sake! Every demon knew her name and feared her! And yet- A loud growl rumbled through Valendra's throat as she looked at Emet. Her eyes were spitting fire and her mouth was drawn back into a snarl. "You! You human!" The demon yelled as she pierced her tail right through the teenager's stomach. Emet's eyes widened for a moment as she looked down at her wounded belly. A weak grin spread on Valendra's lips. "Serves you right."
Emet stared at the wound for a moment…and then she laughed. It was a loud and pleased laugh. Valendra shivered, this human gave her the creeps. Emet grinned and pulled the tail out of her stomach before crushing it with her bare hand. The demon screamed in pain and quickly retracted her broken tail. With eyes filled with hatred she looked up at the human and was about to say something nasty, but instead of words a gasp escaped her lips. "I-impossible…" Valendra looked at the deep wound in Emet's stomach and saw it closing right in front of her eyes! In a few seconds the wound was completely healed! Uncle…what have you done… A wicked shark grin spread on Emet's lips as she saw the shocked look on Valendra's face. The teenager kneeled down next to the demon girl and sweetly whispered in her ear. "Val, ya're not gonna tell yar uncle about any of this. Ya hear me? Ya're gonna go home now with Naira and pretend that I never was here. If ya disobey me I'll make ya regret it…ya work for me remember? Ya're my bodyguard so ya have to do what I tell ya to do."
Fear, embarrassment and hatred were running through Valendra's veins. She wanted to scream and attack the human again, but those scary eyes were stopping her from doing so…this girl…was terrifying. She's the one…she's the one uncle truly wants, not Naira. This is the one he's truly interested in. Emet glared at the girl one more time before getting up. Suddenly she felt a hand on her shoulder. Slowly the teenager turned around and saw that it was Callisto. She was badly wounded, but alive. She was going to survive this. The angel's eyes slightly narrowed as she looked at the human. "Why…? Why did you just save my life? I thought you were loyal to Satan?" Emet huffed, an amused and cocky smirk spread on her lips. "I am loyal to no one…except Naira. That dumbass has got a soft spot for ya…if ya were gonna die that would've caused her great grief and I don't want that…I hate to see her cry…" A small smile spread on the angel's lips as she petted Emet's shoulder. "I see…well, thank you…" The human rolled her eyes and slapped the angel's hand away. "Whatever, just get the hell out of here before I have to save yar lousy ass again." The angel smirked. This girl really was something special. Callisto picked up her sword and changed it back into her bracelets. "Sure. Well, I'll see you later!" She said with a wink before taking of and flying away.
Emet watched the angel disappear out of sight as Valendra got up and changed back to her human form. The demon looked intensely at the teenager and noticed a sudden change. Those cold and cruel eyes softened and got something warm and lively again. Naira blinked surprised her eyes as she looked around. "Eh? Valendra? What happened…? And where's Callisto?" Valendra clenched her fists as she looked away. "She left…come on, let's go home."
