The Reaper Truth

By BLotusflower24

Other / Drama

Chapter 1 The Past



A young woman stood sorrowful on the balcony of Dispatch, her radiant yellow-green eyes filled with tears. She wanted to yell and stomp her feet in rage, but she resisted seeing that the reaper did not want to disturb the sleeping bundle in her arms. The woman resumed her gaze to the horizon her dusty blonde hair flowing softly in the breeze.

More tears streamed down her cheeks, her beloved mate had been sentenced to exile in the human realm. He had only an hour left to spend with her and their newborn son." Elena." The reaper turned around to her mate his eyes glowing brightly and his long silver hair waved gracefully behind him as he walked toward her.

He was handsome, but not the reason she loved him, he had a bubbly and entertaining personality. Something that was rare in a grim reaper, with his smooth words the reaper charmed her heart and eventually won it. Their love grew to tenderness leading to the birth of their offspring. Elena couldn't have been happier, until that day the assembly decreed that her mate was a threat to reaper society and was to be banished.

She rubbed her head, the memory still embedded in her cranium. Elena felt relief when her mate began massaging her head gently easing away the pain." Thank you Adrian." He smiled, eyes softening at the sight of the child in her arms. Elena saw his gaze and lifted the child placing him in his father's arms, immediately the baby opened his eyes.

The child gazed at the older reaper who gave him a large grin; the baby mimicked his smirk showing off two small fangs. " Heh, Heh he has your eyes." Elena took his arm laying her head on her mate's shoulders." But he has your smile my darling."

She leaned over placing a kiss to his lips, they stayed allowing themselves to get lost in the moment. His lips pushed roughly against hers, this was the last time they would share a kiss this passionate ever again. Adrian wrapped his free arm around her waist while hers were around his neck. They continued the kiss almost forgetting the squirming baby in his other arm, they broke apart when the child began to cry wanting attention.

Both parents rushed to his aid." It's alright dearie your mama and papa are here for you. So calm down papa wants to see his son smiling again." Adrian reached over and stroking his nails into his son's hair. It was a very unusual color, but he assumed it was from Elena's side of the family. His touch soothed the baby's tantrum and soon the child was smiling. His hands gripping its father's silver locks, Elena relaxed at the sight of the interaction.

For a moment, all seemed right in the world. Deep in thought she began stroking her mate's long black nails." Will you be alright when you go to London?" He sighed." Don't worry love I have already found a place to stay and an occupation so the humans don't know I'm not one of them. But, I have to say this I won't be alright knowing I am no longer allowed to see my family again." Adrian replied staring at the sleeping baby in his arms.

Elena stared as well, remembering that they had forgotten something important." Adrian, I just realized we have to name him." Her mate's eyes widened." You're right that simply won't do, we can't have the other children calling him baby now would we." She chuckled." I want you to name him." Adrian was shocked, but responded by placing a kiss on her cheek." Luckily I had the perfect name picked out." He leaned forward whispering it in her ear, she squealed happily." Oh, my love it's absolutely perfect!" They both looked at the child, nodding in agreement that the name suited him.
