Zeref smiled and watched his little brother being reborn in the test tube in front of him. It took a lot of effort and time to recover him and now he would be reborn as the ultimate demon, E.N.D. With him, Zeref felt at ease that his dream of death would become a reality.
"Little brother, I have faith that you will become the great demon I want you to be. But I know you have a destiny to eliminate me, that I am sadden. However, in case you fail..." He walked towards another test tube, this one showing a small girl. She had alabaster skin, long black hair, and a pretty face. To the human eye, she looked like a normal girl. But in reality, she was a piece of Zeref that he had fashioned into her. He pressed his face against her test tube.
"There she is, in all her beauty. A power that rivals that of Lumine Histoire, my daughter Hotaru."
Many years have past since the day she was brought into the world. Hotaru grew up only knowing the world through her dad's eyes. Seeing humans as inferior life forms and being the most loyal demon to her father. Even though she technically wasn't human, Hotaru was still fascinated by their culture and science. Only six years old, Hotaru knew more than the Magic Council knew in all their years. She had also grown more enchanting. Her long black hair was down her back, her vivacious green eyes always in a book. Zeref couldn't harm her too, being his own spawn. But what he had said about her is true, her power were immense. And even he worried about her being found out.
"Hotaru, I must leave you for a while."
"Why daddy? Are you going to be gone forever?" Her eyes pricked with tears and Zeref patted her head.
"No daddy is just taking a long nap. You will have to practice your magic without me."
Hotaru opened her palm to reveal a black orb. Like her father, she learned the dark arts of death magic and chaos magic. She could destroy life, but never restore.
"Yes I understand. You have to leave to sleep. Is it because of Uncle Natsu?"
She had already heard the story from him. How Natsu had gone to train with Igneel and didn't know about his origin of where he'd come from.
"You're right as usual. Once he awakens his true self, then you will live a happier life."
"Will you get hurt? Uncle Natsu won't hurt you too bad will he?"
Zeref ruffled Hotaru's head. "Why don't you wait and find out? For now, you will continue your training and find a way to hide yourself. If word ever got out about you," He stopped, seeing the fear masked on her face."They will kill you."
"I promise daddy. Humans will rue the day they messed with you. And when the time comes, I will destroy them all!"
Seeing her face brighten up more, Zeref nodded and left her in the abandon library they had stayed in for all her life. Hotaru squealed and opened her study books. There was much to learn about Fiore and she wanted to be ready for when her dad would return and her uncle as well.
This is her story...Hotaru Dragneel, Demon of Destruction.
