Key Eighteen: Stacy:
Lavi went out to go buy Ami a bottle of melon water. He leaned outside the wall of the convenient store and sighed.
"Damn it," he muttered. "Ami can be so demanding at times."
"Isn't she?" a female's voice asked. Lavi jerked his head upwards and looked to his right. A slender girl playing with her dirty blonde hair eyed with a cat-like smile. Her black mini-skirt was enough to cover her ass while her rocker tube top practically flashed her breasts and showed off her midriff. She held a wrapped ice pop in her other hand. Lavi frowned when he saw that gold chain around her neck.
"What are you doing here, Stacy?" he asked. The goth demon twirled her hair in her fingers.
"I'm just out," she said.
He narrowed his eyes at her. "And… how did you find me?"
"I sensed your innocence in the living realm."
Lavi frowned as he looked down at his hammer charm around his neck. The demon unwrapped a rainbow-colored ice pop and put it in her mouth. Lavi turned his head away when she pretty much started to fellatio the ice pop.
"Why do you always do that around me?" he asked. Stacy glanced up at him, batting her eyelashes.
"Jealous?" she asked.
"I have a girlfriend," he said.
"So I've seen."
"You've been stalking me?" His eyes looked so cold as he glared at her. Stacy pulled out her cold treat with a pop.
"Only for the past couple of days," she said. "My, you have been quite a busy boy. How far along is your girlfriend?" Lavi gritted his teeth.
"Three months," he said. Stacy made a cute little baby face at him.
"Aw, why so sour?" she asked. "Isn't a happy time for you?"
"What do you mean?" To hear this demon woman speak was like Lavi wishing physical pain upon himself. It took his all not to strangle her. Instead, Lavi snorted.
"Take a guess!" the angel growled. Stacy pretended to think as she sucked on her ice pop. The brown-looking juices ran down the flat stick.
"She's a teenage girl with the mentally of a spoiled eight-year-old girl," she said. Lavi's breathing grew harder as he let off a string of cuss words in his head.
"Oh yeah, her grandmother and Bookman don't approve."
Lavi's nostrils flared. "You can feel free to shut up and go away now." That's when her eyes grew wide. She lowered her ice pop and covered her mouth.
"Oh!" Stacy said. "She doesn't know that you're an angel, does she?" Lavi slammed his fist against the convenient store wall.
"Shut up!" he barked.
"Oh!" Stacy said. "I am right after all."
"I said shut up!"
Stacy flipped back her messy blonde hair. "You really are in trouble, boy. You're like me now."
"Don't fucking compare yourself to me!"
The demon shrugged her shoulders. "Still, that's going to be a nasty shock when she finds out that she is giving birth to an abomination after about…" She did a quick count on her fingers. "Six months?"
"I said, shut up!" the angel yelled. He yanked off his hammer charm. Stacy put up her hands, smirking.
"Oh, you're mad!" she said. Stacy threw her chewed-on ice pop stick in the garbage. "I think it's time for me to go anyway." She turned to walk away. But then, Stacy stopped and glanced over her shoulder.
"You might want to watch your back," she said. "Once that kid is born, her army will be after them to really bring the end!" Lavi glared at her.
"What's that supposed to mean?" he asked. The demon turned around with a mocking grin on her face.
"Let's just say what happened in Ikebukuro was just round one," she said. Before Lavi could say a word, she was gone. He dropped his hammer on the ground and sighed. Stacy may have been annoying to him, but she did warn him when things were about to go up shit's creek for him. Lavi closed his eyes and rubbed his forehead. It wouldn't be long before Ami called to interrogate him on his whereabouts.
