Ch. 1 Meet the TeamLiana's POV
Knock! Knock! Knock!
"Uh, There's no one home!"
KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK!
"Fine, I'm coming!"
I slammed my book shut and stood glaring at the door. I walked over mumbling multiple profanities before kicking the door open hoping to hit the guy in the face.
No such luck. The guy was a good three feet from the door with another flanking him. I recognized the first as Gerald, one of the magi's personal message boys. He stood stiff as a board with his blonde hair slipping into his eyes he was obviously scared shitless. Then again I couldn't blame him. I had already nearly killed half of the messengers the magi sent. They kept waking me up in the middle of the night shouting some crap about "Asgard's in danger, or there are demons on the loose!" I think they just have some sick sense of humor.
The other guy I new pretty well, despite my best efforts. His name was Ledah, or as I named him The Emotionless Jackass. He had shoulder length blond hair and the black wings customary of his position as a grim angel. His Diviner, Lorelei, hung loosely in his hand, but he was fully alert and prepared to fight in a moments notice. As much as I hate to admit it he was kind of attractive. Gerald chose now to interrupt my inspection.
"The magi wish to have a word with you."
I turned back to Gerald with a bored look and smirked mentally when he took a step back.
"And what if I have nothing to say to them?" I replied leaning against the doorframe.
Gerald gulped and said, "The magi say that this meeting is of…"
"…the utmost importance and that it is required that you attend. Am I right?" I said finishing his statement. All messengers say that to me to convince me to come to those stupid meetings. This is usually around the time they run away because I grabbed the dagger hidden in my sleeve, but I try not to do that to the newer messengers or the less irritating ones.
Gerald took another step back before saying "Y-Yes ma'am, your presence would be appreciated."
Normally I'd tell him to get lost and slam the door in his face, but it wasn't worth the effort. So I agreed to go after I changed. Gerald thanked me and took off. I walked inside to my room and changed into a simple black shirt and matching pants before looking in the mirror. I was average looking in my opinion. My midnight black hair hung loosely just below my shoulder blades. Ending just above my black wings, yeah I said black wings. I'm a grim angel like Ledah, but I'm not very happy about it. Ever since I got my Diviner I've been an outcast to everyone, even other Grim Angels. My Diviner, Necrosis, hadn't been used since the war till I came along.
The last person to wield it betrayed Asgard and led to the deaths of thousands. So now everyone thinks I'll turn out to be just like him. It doesn't help that Necrosis is a dark element bow it just helps add to the list of reasons to avoid me. So yeah, I'm real popular. Normal angels fear me and other Grim Angels despise me. You see Necrosis wasn't truly meant for me. My best friend was to wield it but to do so she had to sacrifice someone close to her… but she couldn't kill me. So instead she acted as the sacrifice by killing herself and her Diviner went to me. Most Grim Angels had to give something up for their Diviners so they're upset because I 'apparently' didn't sacrifice anything.
After checking my appearance one more time I went down to the basement. I looked at the moss and mildew covered room until my eyes locked on a simple wooden chest. I walked over and opened it. Inside was a pure black bow with the jagged appearance all Diviners seem to have. I grabbed it and a quiver of arrows. I honestly don't know why I carry arrows I never use them. Necrosis fires arrows made of dark energy whenever I shoot so I don't really need arrows, but I guess I got into the habit of grabbing arrows back before I received my Diviner.
I walked back upstairs and out the door without a second glance and was surprised to see Ledah still standing outside. I walked over and stood in front of him. We stayed there staring at each other for a long time until I finally got pissed and yelled "WHAT!!! You've been out here all day! What do you want from me?!"
After my little rant he was still standing there staring at me and just before I yelled at him again he turned and walked away.
No. He. Didn't.
"Don't you walk away from me, I want to know why you're here!" I yelled at him yet again really pissed off. Honestly, the dude shows up doesn't say a word and when I ask him a question he turns his back and leaves!
"Wait Up!" I called after him starting to cool down, but still pretty pissed. He kept walking as I followed yelling at him to say something. After ten minutes of this I realized he wasn't going to say anything so I just settled for glaring at his back. It didn't take long to reach one of the more populated areas in Asgard and as soon as people saw me children were taken inside and I had so many glares burrowing into my back that I wondered if having so many people glaring at me could kill me. We kept going through the crowds and finally he stopped at the steps of tower where the magi live.
Ledah turned and said, "I was told to make sure you came." Before he left into the tower. I stood there gawking like an idiot at him for five minutes before following.
We went through many confusing hallways until we reached a large pair of doors but before we opened them a voice came from behind us " Well, well, well, what have we here the fake and emotionless Grim Angels. Here for your next suicide mission Liana?"
I turned and came face to face with Malice. She hates me and has made it her life's goal to make mine a living hell. Normally I'd say some witty retort but I didn't have time to deal with her so I just glared. She just smirked and left. I was honestly surprised she normally never gave up an opportunity to torment me. I pushed that thought aside and walked through the now open doors. We were now in a large blue room standing in front of Hector, one of the seven magi. The doors slammed shut behind us and I looked toward Hector, wondering what he wanted.
We stood there for a long time and I was just considering yelling at him when the doors burst open and a figure rushed in yelling "Sorry I'm Late!"
Hector spoke first "Nice of you to join us Ein."
I took a moment to inspect the new guy. He had short brown hair and his Diviner strapped to his side. His Diviner was a jagged sword that gave of a faint yellow glow. However, the most notable thing about him was his wings or lack there of. I was brought out of my thoughts by his voice.
"I'm sorry, it's Rose fault."
A new voice came from next to his feet. "Excuse me? I'm not the one who got lost on the way here!"
I looked down and noticed a black, winged cat sitting casually by his feet. I barely contained my laughter when the two started a "Did not, did too." Argument.
Hector interrupted their argument by addressing all of us. "Now, I've asked you all here to discuss a matter of great importance."
That caught everyone's attention. Normally, the magi don't find anything really important so if they thought this was important it must be something pretty big.
"I'm sure you've all received the message that demons have begun to move through Riviera." He continued shooting me a glare that I just shrugged off. I mean it's not my fault that those stupid messengers woke me up. "We believe that this could be a sign of another Ragnarok. As such we have chosen you three to go to Riviera and actuate the Retribution."
I froze, Hectors voice fading into the background as I went over what was just said. I had to go, me the antisocial girl everyone hates, to Riviera with a wingless kid and an emotionless ass. I only had one thought.
No. Freaking. Way.
Well there you have it. Like it? Hate it? Indifferent? Please review and tell me!
