Title: See That Boy
Day/Theme: 19th September/"Dante in hell"
Series: Count Cain
It is large and intimidating, the man who built it – or rather, the man who had it built, for no one who could afford a house like this one would do manual labour – had a love affair with the terrifying architecture of the Gothic style.
In this house, there is a room. It is richly furnished; the sofa and armchairs are beautifully embroidered (though you can see where it has been damaged, where some small boy has kicked the backs of his shoes against it) and the antimacassars are trimmed with gold thread. A casual observer is reminded, however, that "rich" has never been a synonym for "warm", or even "happy". There, in one of the armchairs, sits a boy.
That boy is a demon.
See that silky, raven-black hair? See that pale skin? This is a boy who only goes out at night. This is a boy who lives in the dark. There, see? He's opening his eyes.
You've woken him up!
There's nowhere to hide. He won't hurt you, but you'll die all the same. You might as well take a good long look; his is the last face you'll ever see.
Yes. He is beautiful. All the devil's children are.
