This is my first fanfiction ever, so I would love to get feedback - good or bad. This story was inspired by the first two songs in the Series of Evil by mothy, Aku no Musume (Daughter of Evil) and Aku no Meshitsukai (Servant of Evil). I stress the word "inspired," so please don't pick out details where I didn't follow the songs exactly. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
Two twins sat in the middle of a meadow. They couldn't have been older than six years old and they had blonde hair and golden eyes. The two were identical except for the fact that one was a girl and the other a boy. Their laughs tinkled like little bells as they floated up to the clear blue sky. The little girl placed the daisy chain she just finished weaving on top of her brother's head and laughed. "It's a present for you, Len!"
Len laughed with her. "Thanks, Rin!"
The two laughed and played together, oblivious of the argument between their parents behind a tree nearby.
A woman with blonde hair and golden eyes glared at the man standing across from her. "This cannot go on any longer. I cannot keep bringing Rin to visit Len! Our relationship will be discovered sooner or later!" she hissed, afraid that shouting would alarm the children.
The man, who also had blonde hair and golden eyes, looked back at her, annoyed. "And what are you going to do about it? You won't let us move into the castle since you, the queen of this nation, cannot be found to have had children with a peasant like me. What do you expect me to do?"
The woman looked away and breathed deeply in an attempt to calm down. "Then I will take Rin and return to the castle and we will cut off all connections." Without waiting for an answer, she walked to where the children were playing and picked Rin up. "Come on, Rin. We're going home," she said with a forced smile on her face.
The man ran after her. "No, wait!" Then he stopped since she was already next to Rin. He watched, his heart aching.
Rin blinked. "Already?"
"When will we be able to visit Len and Daddy again?"
The woman didn't answer. She knew that the truth was going to hurt the two kids and she didn't want to see them like this. After a bit of silence, she said, "Soon," knowing that soon was never going to come.
"Okay!" Rin smiled. "I'll see you soon Len!" She waved to Len.
"See you, Rin!" Len waved back at her.
Rin and her mother walked away, never to walk back again. Rin and Len constantly waited for soon to come, but it never did.
Rin grew up as the princess of the nation, pampered and spoiled. She despised her mother and the world for separating her from her brother. Soon, she learned that if she made the world suffer, then she felt just a little better, so she caused trouble all the time. Nobody could go against her though, because she was the princess.
Len grew up as a village boy, studying hard to try and be able to meet his sister again someday. He learned different skills in his attempt to rise up through the ranks. Many did not want to teach him, but he did not give up—he begged and worked for them until they agreed. It was because of his determination that he learned writing, reading, music, cooking, sword fighting, knife fighting, and archery.
Several years later, the queen died due to causes unknown to the people and Rin became the new queen at the age of only fourteen, so many still called her Princess. She continued to hate the world and the world hated her back. She had wealth and power and strong guards though, so nobody dared to oppose her. Her reputation of evil led her to become known around the world as the Daughter of Evil.
When Len learned that his sister had become the queen, he had tried to contact her multiple times, but he was stopped by the guards or security every time.
After another failed attempt, Len walked down the dirt road wearing a gray cloak, his head hung low. The sky was filled with ominous, gray clouds, ready to rain. Len was ready to give up, ready to accept that he was never going to see his sister again. He remembered Rin's smile on their last day together eight years ago. The smile that seemed to make the whole world light up with joy. The smile that he was never going to see again. Len bit his lip and breathed deeply to keep the tears in his eyes from falling down his cheeks.
Walking around a corner, Len noticed a group of people gathered around a poster on the wall. Curious to see what the commotion was about, he walked over, pushing and squeezing through the mass of people. "Sorry…excuse me…coming through…" Finally, Len made his way through the crowd, only to be squished onto the wall next to the poster. Annoyed at the people fighting to read the poster, Len tried to make out the words from the bad angle he had. As he read, his eyes widened and he found the strength to push himself away from the wall to get a better look. He wiped the tears from his eyes to make sure that he read it correctly. More tears flooded out from his eyes, but it was out of joy this time, not sadness. The poster was a notice to recruit a personal servant for the princess. This was Len's chance to enter the castle and see Rin. His spirit rekindled, Len pushed his way back out of the crowd. He was determined to become Rin's personal servant, no matter what. He was going to see her again soon.
