‘Sometimes the person you’d take a bullet for is behind the trigger.’
[1,000 years ago at the Gate of Darkness]
“You betrayed me Tharollin, how could you do that to me?” Avonmora, the queen of mermaids, asked in a teary voice at the man she had once referred to as her lover. She was just in time from stopping him from opening the Gate of Darkness.
“For powers, my love, to open the Gate of Darkness I have to sleep with you and collect your blood, which you gave me the two willingly.” Tharollin, the demon king answered her with a smirk.
“I thought you were the one, the god's made you my soulmate Tharollin, you are my soulmate and whatever I did for you was out of love. I gave you myself and my blood thinking you want to use my blood and heal the wounds you had last when you fought with Roen, but I was wrong, you only collected it to use it and open the Gates of Darkness.”
“You've forgotten something sweetheart, I am a demon, in fact the king of demons, we don't have feelings. Opening the Gate of Darkness will make me the strongest of them all and I shall rule over the supernaturals.” Tharollin said. “And even if I want to have a lover, it wouldn't be a fish girl, now if you excuse me I have a gate to open.”
“I was warned to stay away from you, but did I listen? No. Tharollin, you still have a chance to change, do not open the Gate of Darkness, please I beg you.” Avonmora pleaded, hoping to Gods that they change his heart.
Tharollin laughed at her foolishness. “You're a big fool Avonmora, you were blinded by love that is why you couldn't see my main motive.”
Tharollin, a very handsome and tempting demon king, lost his rights as king when he went for war against King Roen and the rest of the supernaturals except the mermaids, they were healers. King Roen, who has the backing of the Gods, was the one who had defeated him and they killed all his demon warriors and imprisoned the ones alive.
He ran away from the battlefield with serious injuries. He ran into Avonmora who was heading towards the battlefield with some of her healers.
Seeing him for the first time was like seeing the Sun. Her crystal necklace shone a little bit and she knew the man bleeding profusely was her soulmate. Avonmora quickly ordered the rest to go without her as she teleported Tharollin to her cave to treat him.
Their love story began….
“Did you know what you ask for Avonmora?” King Roen asked the beautiful mermaid standing before him.
“Yes, I know what I am asking Roen. Help me and plead with the rest of the Kings and Queens that they shouldn't harm Tharollin, you know they listen to you.”
“This is difficult and you know it. Helping the evil king of demons who went rebellious against all Supernaturals, is different, saying we should give him a second chance is another thing.”
“He is my soulmate Roen, you know what that means. Please stand with me, he has changed. We should give him a second chance.” Avonmora pleaded.
“I am only supporting you because of what we had in the past, do not come back to me when he betrays you. I won't listen then.”
“Thank you so much Roen, he won't betray me.” Avonmora said with happiness.
“I will set up a meeting with the rest of the Kings and Queens soon, bring him with you when you are coming to the meeting, Avonmora.”
“This is outrageous! How can we trust a demon who wants to rule over the Supernaturals?” Queen of the fairies, Flora, spat out with venom as she stared at Tharollin with disdain.
“He isn't the same person you once knew, please he's Changed and I can swear on my life. He is my soulmate, my better half. Queen Flora, you got married to the king of globins didn't you even when we kicked against it. My fellow Kings and Queens, I am also a queen and I know how you want our people to feel safe, but believe me, Tharollin isn't evil.” Avonmora said.
“Roen, what is your intake in this?” King Davea, asked the Wolf King. A Davea is a creature of shadow, a special type of demon, which is periodically used by other demons, similarly to hellhounds.
The room where the meeting was held became quiet as they all wanted to hear Roen’s opinion.
“Let's give him a second chance as she had said.” King Roen told them finally.
“Are you supporting her because she was once your fuck mate?” Darin, the King of Vampires asked as he started picking invisible dirt from his nails.
The growl that came out from Roen shook the whole room they were in. Standing up to his feet in anger.
“I dare you to repeat what you said AGAIN.” Roen pronounced each word with a growl as he stared hatefully at the Vampire King.
“But I was saying the truth.” Darin said with a smile.
“That's enough from the both of you, we have heard from Avonmora, and since the Wolf King had given out his consent, so we shall. Tharollin has been forgiven, but Avonmora takes note, if he tries to bring harm to any of the kingdoms, you know the consequences, don't you?” The Queen of Witches, Lillian, said.
“Yes I know the consequences, thank you all.” Avonmora said with a smile.
[End of flashback]
“You played me all along, but I won't let you open the Gate of Darkness.”
“Too late for that my love, you came too late, I have already done the sacrifices, mixing the blood of a powerful mermaid and my blood together, and you are just a mermaid without any fighting skills, should I remind you that as a demon your powers doesn't affect me. So very soon, all Supernaturals will be mine to rule. Join me Avonmora, let's rule all of them together.”
“Over my dead body will I do that.”
“Your choice, my gain, goodbye Avonmora.” Tharollin said, turning his back to her and going towards the Gate of Darkness.
“You will die in there, do not open the Gate Tharollin, please. the evil behind that gate will affect everyone, for the sake of our child I am carrying, please don't open that gate.”
That stopped Tharollin who then turned to face Avonmora with the coldest look she had ever seen. “Using those lines doesn't work for me, a demon king like myself can't have children.” With that he walked over to where the Gate of Darkness was, stood in front of it and utter the words that had been Forbidden.
The Gate of Darkness, was said to be the inhabitant of Lucifer, an evil being who was killed and his bones were locked up by the god's, whoever that opens the gate of Darkness and possesses the bones of Lucifer shall have the powers of the once powerful being.
Lucifer bones weren't the only ones in it.
Tharollin smiled as he finished casting out the spell.
The Gate of Darkness began to open slowly. Inside the Gate there was pure darkness.
“Do not move any further, Tharollin!” King Darin shouted at the demon who stopped once he heard his voice.
Tharollin turned and saw all the Kings and Queens of the supernaturals before him.
“You alerted them, Avonmora.” Tharollin said without any surprise as the gate behind him continued opening, just one step and he was inside the Gate.
“I have too, I am sorry.” Avonmora replied.
“Well, great Kings and Queens, I don't have much time to discuss with you all, but I will get to see you all in the next 1,000 years to come. Be sure you are still alive when I return, for I shall have my revenge on all of you standing before me.”
“That is if you enter the gate.” Roen said but it was already too late.
“Too late, you all are always late. I shall return with my armies to defeat you all and rule over every supernatural.” Tharollin said as he finally moved back, one of his feet entering the gate. ”Goodbye to see you all in 1,000 years later.” With that saying, his second feet entered the gate. As soon as his two feet was inside the gate, a dark hole opened beneath his feet and he fell down towards it. The dark hole closes.
Lillian used her magic to prevent the gate from opening further.
“This is all your fault!” Queen Flora shouted. “Now the Gate of Darkness is opened, it won't take much time before it starts to turn everyone into evil.”
“I am sorry, I didn't know he would do something like that.” Avonmora said softly.
Darin wanted to say something hurtful towards Avonmora when a bright light shone before them before it vanished.
A beautiful lady stood where the bright light was, all dressed in white as the Kings and Queens all stood up and bowed to her and sat down again. Her eyeballs were white and her forehead bore a circle.
“The priestess is always there whenever we need her.” King Davea said with a smile.
“I did not bring good news, the gods are angry. The Gate of Darkness is opened and it will cause a great war if it is not closed in time.” The priestess said.
“What then should we do?” Lillian asked.
“The only way to close the gate of Darkness is to sacrifice the one who had caused it.”
All eyes turned to look at Avonmora, some with hate, others in pity.
“Then Avonmora shall be sacrificed to avoid whatever evil that wants to befall on us.” King Darin said.
“Not only her, you know what it took the god's to lock down the Gate of Darkness after they defeat Lucifer. Her people, every single mermaid and merman, shall be sacrificed to close down the Gate in two days time.” The priestess said and vanished.
“You all heard her, in two days time, Avonmora and her people shall be killed.” Queen Flora said with a smile.
“But killing them all, won't that be the end of mermaids?” Roen asked.
“The god's have spoken Roen, and there is no going back.” Darin said and stood up to meet Avonmora. “Enjoy your last days with your people.” He left the meeting room.
Soon everyone began to leave the room except Roen and Lillian.
Standing up to his feet. “I warned you, but I can understand since he was your soulmate. But this time around, I can't help you, the god's are now involved.” with a sad smile, Roen left the meeting room leaving Lillian alone with her
“Lillian, I am pregnant with the demon child, what should I do?”
“Shhhh, the walls have ears, teleport us now to my Chambers.”
Avonmora nodded her head and teleported them to Lillian lairs. Casting a magic spell around the wall to prevent anyone from eavesdropping on their conversation.
“Repeat what you just told me a few minutes ago?”
“I am pregnant with Tharollin, I told him but he thought I was joking. Help me, I don't want my child to die with me. Please my sister, save my child.”
[Two days later]
All the supernaturals gathered to witness the execution of the mermaids race in front of the Gate of Darkness.
The priestess stood before the Gate as she gestured with her head to the Vampire warriors to begin. They started killing the mermaids.
Soon all mermaids and mermen lay dead, remaining Avonmora.
The priestess walked over to meet her. “Your punishment will be so different, the gods want your soul, but your body shall be placed at the front Gate of Darkness to warn anyone who has your fish brain.” She told Avonmora and touched the mermaid's forehead.
Her soul in a smoky form began to come out from her mouth, the priestess brought out a diamond stone and her soul went into it.
Avonmora's body slumped as her eyes were wide open, her lifeless eyes, looking straight to Lillian. It was as if it was reminding her of her promise she made to her two days ago.
The priestess smiled and levitated Avonmora's body and made it stand at the Gate. Her body immediately turned into ice.
The priestess said some words and the gate started closing. It stopped before it finally shut.
“What happened? The Gate isn't shut completely.” Flora said.
The priestess who was equally surprised closed her eyes briefly and opened it. “There is still one more mermaid missing.”
“Impossible, all the mermaid clan has been killed, so which one are you talking about?” Darin asked.
“A mermaid yet to be born. Her blood shall be used in shutting down the Gate of Darkness completely.”
“How is that possible?” Roen demanded.
“I don't know, but it wasn't revealed to me, I shall consult the gods and get back to you all.” The priestess replied and vanished before anyone questioned her further.
Lillian entered her Chambers and made sure she locked the door, saying a spell, a door appeared and she entered it.
The door opened to another hidden room. In the middle of the room was a ball, which looked more like nylon floating with a very tiny fetus in it.
She had promised Avonmora she would take care of her child.
“Promise me Lillian nothing will happen to my child, you're a very strong witch, I know you can do something to prevent my child from dying with me.”
“I will help you because you once helped me before.”
“Thank you, but you must promise me Lillian not to tell her who her parents were, I have a strong feeling that it's a girl. If it is a girl, please do name her Rae, because she is my Rae of light, but if it is a boy, you name him. And one more thing, please hide her powers, especially if she carries the demon blood”
“Of course, Avonmora. Come one, we don't have much time.” Lillian said and pronounced the spell. The same door appeared and they entered inside.
Lillian smiled as she went over to where the ball was floating.
Since the child had a demon blood in him or her, it would take almost 1,000 years before the ball burst.
The priestess appeared on top of the mountain where she lived.
She didn't see that coming, killing off the mermaids and using their blood at the gate was for a purpose. She couldn't tell the people that the yet to be born mermaid she saw will be born in a thousand years to come, but who will give birth to the mermaid?
