READ THIS DISCLAIMER, DAG IT!
This story's got SAD parts. It also includes things I don't condone and do not advise you to do like- cheating, drinking, keeping secrets, holding onto silly angst, or mixing whiskey and rum. If you do it, I hold no responsibility.
So. Enough of that, more importantly,
This story is DEDICATED TO kurono-aijin!
This is all for you Kuro, who wanted long fics from the sentences challenges. (Sorry it's such a crappy and short fic) K. Shutting up now.
P.S. The idea of an epilogue/sequel has been brought up.. Might happen in the future, might not.
HEY! I NEED YOUR HELP! YES, YOU! PLEASE BE A NICE READER AND JUST TELL ME ONE THING-
WHO DO YOU THINK YAKO'S EX-HUSBAND SHOULD HAVE BEEN?
DO NOT READ AFTER THE WORDS, THE END, IF YOU WANT THIS TO REMAIN FLUFFY ANGST.
#11 - Weddings
In the end, there was two.
One in the Human World and one in the Daemon World.
It had scared her, the idea of going to the Daemon World more than anything else but eventually she went, knowing that Neuro would keep her safe.
And he had. There had been some rough moments (daemon chairs, food that ate you, and a batch of really weird daemons who were Neuro-fans) but...in the end everything had worked out ok.
What had been even more scary, in a way, was the ceremony in the Human World.
Or at least, announcing the ceremony in the Human World. She had worried about the reactions concerning her announcing the ceremony to her friends and family and had even considered having a really private wedding with just them, two witnesses and the priest. Neuro, though, shot this idea of hers down, insisting that he was going to have the 'ownership ceremony' in public or not at all.
In the end, she gave in. In a way, it was kind of sweet. And it really was for the best, telling everyone. She had had enough of keeping secrets.
But still, that didn't mean the reactions were pretty.
Everyone she knew (and plenty of people she didn't) was scandalized.
What? Marrying her assistant?/! She's only been married to that other guy for eight months!
Her mother made confused protests, her friends and co-workers looked at her funny...and the media-!
Well, naturally the media would not ever let such a juicy story like this slide...
In fact, many members of the media, (news stations, reporters, journalists, and etc.) seized on the story, ready to print outrageous rumors and happily embellish the scandal to make money..
However, they all mysteriously dropped the story after Yako's new fiance paid them a visit...and after he talked for a short while with her family, friends, and co-workers, they understood too.
Or were too terrified out of their wits to say anything else...but that was ok.
Neuro hadn't permanently hurt any of the people she really cared about..so she could live with that.
But in the end, she found that even without Neuro's...persuasive...skills, many of her family and her friends understood and stuck by her, commenting on how truly happy she looked for the first time in a long while.
And she was. Truly and deliriously happy because she was finally with the daemon she loved.
Surely you didn't think that was it, did you?
You do understand, don't you?
Just because I'm not fully daemon anymore, doesn't mean that I'm powerless...
Because I will always be something more than human.
And I most definitely have not become a devolved idiot who 'loves.'
I have only found something useful to me, and important, that I wish to keep safe and to only be mine.
Nod, if you understand.
Maybe you can come up with some more interesting puzzles to solve, hmm?
There will be hatchlings soon and they'll need food...
It would be best if the human race evolved quickly now..
I'm not a very patient being.
And if you don't evolve 'quick enough' I might just have to tear your world to pieces.
(Stimulation- torture/fear/difficult situations, I've found, is key to evolving.)
You wouldn't want me to do a thing like that, now would you?
Of course not.
Neuro! What are you doing?
Nothing at all, Louse. Nothing at all.
HEY! You said you wouldn't call me Louse anymore!
I changed my mind.
Hurry up now, Louse, or I'll drag that tongue of yours along the tarmac.
I'm only thinking of the time, Louse. Surely you wouldn't want to be late to that appointment... or is it that you are unwilling to see the ultrasound images of the hatchling?
My baby is NOT a hatchling, Neuro. It is a b-a-b-y. Baby.
It is my child and therefore, it is a hatchling.
Your child? I'm the one who's carrying the- HMMMFFFFPPPHHH.
There is something I need to take care of...go start the car please. I will join you in a moment.
Wha-? Oh.. ok. Sure thing..
Back to our earlier topic of conversation, before we were so rudely interrupted by my mate..
Evolving quickly would be your best chance of surviving.
Do you understand how very weak you humans are?
That girl.. Yako, who is now completely under my power was your best chance at 'winning.'
That girl has been the only one to hurt me. To truly wound me. And now I can divert her attention most easily with those things, you humans call a 'kiss.'
That girl is now also my mate. My property.
You humans don't stand a chance.
So hurry up and evolve, ok?
Or your world just might end..not with fire..not with ice...but with swirling green eyes.
And you wouldn't want a thing like that to happen right?
Nod if you understand.
Now turn away.
Shut down your electrical devices.
Because this is a dream.
And therefore can't be real at all. Not one bit.
So in the morning when you awake...
Ignore the purple and yellow feathers you'll find around your room.
Ignore the feeling you're being watched.
Because you won't like what happens otherwise.
