Key Two: History:
-Thirty Years Ago-
Lavi wandered into a small bar in Bangkok. It was raining that night. He was supposed to be on a mission. Ah, missions. Those were the days. The angels didn’t have to worry about an endless war. They weren’t accepted to begin with. So, they hid away from the normal humans. The angels had their own way of running things. They couldn’t interact with tadpoles or normal. They couldn’t reveal their true nature. The angels ended up moving towards the sky.
As they evolved, things changed.
Angels started to look a little more human. They could speak in human tongues more easily. Some of them have been studying the normals closely. Pretty soon, most angels could pass as humans as well as tadpoles could. But, they were still feared.
Hence why they were on these missions.
This time, it was Lavi’s turn. He was to observe the normals around him. Day one, nothing happened. The cities all started to look the same to him. He couldn’t make too much contact. Lavi noticed all eyes on him. He was used to it by now. The angel shoved his hands into his pockets. Good thing Bookman wasn’t with him. The last thing he needed was that old man to give him judgmental looks.
Day two was pretty much the same. More eyes on him and not much to do. Bookman had been keeping tabs on him. Lavi rolled his eyes as the old man spoke in his mind.
“Are you listening to me?” he asked.
“Yeah, yeah,” Lavi mumbled. He looked around the crowded streets. The youth had their eyes glued to their cell phones. Old people sat under the shade. Lavi frowned under the heat. He moved his arms behind his head.
This is lame.
“But you have to do this,” Bookman said in his head. “It is your mission from Heaven!” Lavi groaned out loud.
“Yeah, yeah, I know,” he said. He happened to look up and see two little boys staring at him. The angel frowned.
“What?” he asked. The kid ran away, giggling. Lavi rolled his eyes.
“How long do I have to stay here?” he asked.
“You’ve got three more days,” Bookman said. His apprentice groaned.
“You kidding me?” he asked.
“Try to stay out of trouble,” the old man said. Then, it went quiet in Lavi’s head. The angel puffed up his cheeks.
“Damn it,” he muttered. He frowned and rubbed his forehead. Looked like he would have to find a way to kill time.
Cut to this evening.
Lavi stared down at his drink. No matter how much he drank, he couldn’t get intoxicated. No drugs could affect him. Angels could metabolism everything quickly. He took a look around. The party in the bar looked like it was packing up. How many people were left? They probably went off to a better party. Lavi frowned. Why did he pick this place?
“You look like you can hold your liquor well,” someone said next to him. The angel turned his head. A woman stood next to him, looking over his shoulder. Something her red hair smelt like it had just been washed. Lavi had to turn around for a better look. She was dressed in a nice black dress suit. The pearls looked fancy around her neck. Her plump lips begged for a kiss. Hearts filled Lavi’s eye.
“Strike!” he shouted. The woman giggled.
“May I join you?” she asked. Lavi broke into a smile.
“Sure,” he said. The woman with the short red hair sat down next to him.
“This your first time here?” she asked. Lavi gave her a blank stare.
“How can you tell?” he asked. The woman blushed.
“I’m kind of new here too,” she said. “To be honest, I don’t really get out much. I’m just a woman who likes to stay home.”
“I see,” Lavi said. He turned on the charm for this stranger he just met. Something about her drew him in. She didn’t just stare at him like he had two heads. Their conversations felt warmer. Although, Lavi had a strange feeling about this woman, he shook it off.
“So, how long are you staying in Bangkok?” the woman asked.
“A few days,” he said.
“Vacation?” she asked. Lavi rubbed the back of his head.
“Sort of,” he said. “It’s a working vacation in a sense.”
“Are you here on a working vacation too?”
“You can say that.” The woman put up her hand in the air. “Bartender, get me another one!” The bartender gets her another drink.
“Thanks,” the woman said, nodding. She downed the drink really quick. Lavi watched amazed. The woman turned her attention to her.
“Do you want to get out of here?” she asked. “I can take you back to my room.” Her question was all that it took. Lavi’s eye widened.
“Yes ma’am!” he said with a salute. The woman giggled.
“A little eager, aren’t you?” she asked. Lavi’s cheeks turned red.
“I s that bad?” he asked.
“Not at all,” she said. The woman paid the tab for both of them and they left the bar together.
She took him back to her hotel room. The lobby was quiet for the night. The woman giggled as she led the way. Lavi took a look around their surroundings. The gold stood out in the darkness. He hadn’t seen that many dragons in one place before in his life. The disco ball from the ceiling didn’t help the look either. Lavi made a face as he noticed the mirrors on the floor. But then, he blushed.
“Is there a problem?” the woman asked. Lavi quickly shook his head.
“N-Nothing!” he said. She looked down herself.
“Oh,” she said. “Naughty boy!” Lavi peeked down at the mirrors again. Can such a woman be bold enough to go commando like this? The woman giggled.
She led him back to her room. The woman slipped in the key card. Lavi followed her inside and closed the door behind him. He reached out to turn on the lights. The woman grabbed him from the wrist. Lavi glanced behind him.
“No?” he asked. She rested her cheek against his back.
“Uh-uh,” the woman whispered. “You’ll ruin the mood that way.” Lavi kind of smiled and lowered his hand.
“Well okay,” he said. “We’ll play it your way.” He turned to this tiny woman standing in front of him now. He had never noticed how her brown eyes seemed to glow in the dark. She only had one thing on her mind.
“Kiss me,” she commanded. The way she said it made him feel like he didn’t have a choice. Lavi leaned down and kissed her on the lips. She moved his hands to her breasts. He froze, but relaxed into it. The woman broke off the kiss and looked him in the eye.
“Are you a virgin?” she asked. Lavi’s cheeks turned bright red.
“What?!” he asked. His date laughed as she tapped him on the nose.
“You are so cute,” she said. The woman leaned up and kissed him again. He hesitated to take her into his arms. Something like this was forbidden among angels. They weren’t allowed to copulate with anyone, much less humans. But, he found himself curious.
“Please…” Lavi said. The woman looked him in the eye.
“Please what?” she asked. He lifted her chin.
“Please… show me,” he said. The angel didn’t have to go into detail with what he was saying. The woman kissed him again and led him over to her bed. She laid back, pulling him on top. Lavi’s eye moved up and down her curves.
“Do you want to start or do you want me to start?” she asked. He gulped. She raised her eyebrow.
“I’ll take that as you me to lead,” the woman said. She rolled over and pushed him down. She took off her blazer and threw it to the floor.
“Brace yourself, baby!” the woman said aloud. “I’m going to give you a wild night!” Once her blouse came off, she leaned down and kissed him. Lavi’s face turned bright red. He reached up and grabbed her. She smiled into the kiss.
This would be the first night of pleasure that he would ever experience. She would be happy to give it to him. The woman threw back her head and moaned.
“Oh baby!” she cried. “Oh! You’re so good! Oh! Oh!” Lavi moaned and moved to keep up her thrusts. The woman closed her eyes and got lost in her own pleasure. By the end, she collapsed beside of him and went to sleep. Lavi peeked beside her.
“That was great,” he whispered. He too drifted off to sleep.
The next morning, Lavi woke up alone. The sun light in the room nearly blinded him. He mumbled to himself as he rolled over onto his back. What he saw next sent him into a spiral of shock and began his series of headaches.
In the mirror, he saw the woman’s true face. Or rather, black smoke floating around red mask-like demon face. The mouth was wide open, showing off golden teeth. The eyes glowed bright gold against a snow white face. Lavi’s eye widened.
Don’t tell me that I…
Suddenly, the woman turned around. She still had the face that she had last night. Lavi shivered as she broke into a foxlike smile.
“You were really good last night, boo,” the woman said. “Really good.” She blew a kiss at him. That kiss was the start of a strained and lingering relationship between angel and demon.
