    “Happy is for children.” She smirked, her words paired with a dismissive gesture to encourage him to go on.

    When he did, she learned that he belonged to an oppressed people under the thumb of a tyrannical leader. It was the stuff of stories where she came from, where rebels of a resistance struggled to restore order to a world that had fallen into cruel hands. He lost his parents and friends, knew the hardships of real life at such a very young age. He was abused and degraded, left for dead by those who exploited him. It was no wonder he was so aggressive when it came to protecting her, even over things that barely penetrated her own toughened exterior. The slightest display of wickedness was met with violent correction. His story was as sad as it was insightful, a tale of triumph in the end. He was stronger for having gone through what he did, not that he deserved to.

    No one did.

    “A terrible story, indeed. It’s not all bad, of course. If it weren’t for you, and those who helped you, the people of your territory wouldn’t be celebrating in the streets, happy and prosperous.” She said, taking her first sip of wine since her began telling her of his life before becoming the ruler of the Void territories. She nearly forgot she had it in her hand since she was practically on the edge of her seat.

    “There are other Demon Lords, aren’t there?” She asked suddenly. “Are they as cruel and harsh as the one who ruled before you?” She wondered if the Demon Lords ever warred among one another, or if they were content with governing their own regions. Surely beings as powerful were not always content with what they had.

    "True, but thousands had to die in order to have days like today...hundreds of thousands actually."
    He said as he took another large sip of his drink before looking at her as she asked about the other Lords.
    "Some. Three that I know of but they steer clear of my territory. I've warned them that if they set foot in my territory, I'll not only kill them, but I'll burn their legacy to the ground around them before I end their lives. Thanks to having a more kinder demon Lords than evil one's, the evil one's rule a very small area while the nicer one's hold a much stronger rule thanks to not killing off all of their people. The other Lord's and I look at those Tyrants like spoiled kids in the corner. They just stick to their area and we take in the refugees."

    He said as he smiled and shrugged. Looking down to see that Cynthia had fallen into a light slumber he set his glass down and scooped her into his arms.
    "I'm going to get this little one to bed. Terra, be nice. Mina, I'll see you in the morning."
    He said as he smiled and carried Cynthia to his room where she'd be staying the night. Terra put the glasses and alcohol away before heading up to her own room with Mina. Once inside, she pointed to her closet and smiled.
    "Pick whatever you'd like to wear."
    She said as she stripped nude and sat on her bed.
    "I sleep in the nude. Hope you don't mind. I promise, I won't try and rape you while you sleep."

    She said with a giggle as she laid back on the bed, her beautiful body on perfect display against the violet silk sheets of her bed.
    "So? How do you feel about Syn now?"

    It put her at ease somewhat that the population of tyrants among demons was slim, a small fraction compared to those who ruled justly. When Mina called out to the abyss, pouring her energy into the summoning circle that produced the Demon Lord she knew as her guardian, she suspected that she could have enticed any being of power. She was quite fortunate to have called upon a demon who seemed to have her best interest in mind despite keeping him from duties and his people regularly. As she stared into the pool of deep red liquid in her cup, she saw Syn shift from his position. Cynthia had fallen asleep, exhausted from a day of exploration and excitement on her heels. Terra was just barely hanging on. She could tell by the way her eyelids drooped slightly that she was either bored or tired. Even Mina was showing signs of fatigue, or perhaps it was the wine that made her more relaxed. She downed the rest of the contents in her glass before she rose to her feet, giving Syn a small wave as he disappeared in the depths of his enormous home.

    Mina followed Terra to her room, up the steps and down the hall. There she was able to sift through the succubus’ closet, finding that her things were far more revealing than anything she owned—besides, of course, bras and panties. Both of which were unacceptable to wear in public, though demons that were sexual in nature like Terra didn’t adhere to such standards. At Kennewick, they were required to cover themselves, so seeing them in their element as they were was somewhat of a shock. Fortunately Mina wasn’t faint of heart, and more open minded than many might give her credit for.

    She opted for a pair of black yoga pants, remaining in her loose crop top since it was airy and breathable. Folding her things neatly, she turned to the bed, stunned to find Terra completely bare. It was almost jarring, not that she had anything to be ashamed of. “Some warning would have been appreciated,” she laughed. “I suppose you didn’t really need to, though. This is your room, after all . . .”

    She tied up her long dark hair into a pony tail, the curve of her breasts exposed from beneath her top as she lifted her arms. When Terra asked what she thought about Syn, she appeared confused, blinking softly like a perplexed kitten. Nothing he disclosed to her changed her opinion of him. “Oh . . . Well, I guess I understand him better. Why he is the way he is and all.” Mina admitted as she sat on the edge of the bed. “I always thought he was a little too aggressive. Hostile, might be a better word. He is my protector and in my world, there’s not too much to protect me from. Not right now and nothing that I can’t handle myself. He intervenes on my behalf a lot, but I get it now.” Mina explained, running her fingers through the length of her silky black hair. “He’s gotten better about letting me deal with things on my own. I’ve never been one to ask for help since I’ve taken care of myself . . . Well, I guess that isn’t quite right either. I’ve always had someone to take care of me, many people. But emotionally and physically I’ve never needed brute strength.”

    “Anyways, he’s been very good to me. Right from the very beginning . . . with a few hiccups here and there.” He did give her the silent treatment for three weeks for something that wasn’t her fault and he didn’t come to her when he knew she was upset, but in all other regards he was a great companion. She valued him since she had so few now with Oliver gone.

    Terra smiled a she nodded while listening to her.
    "Well as you heard, Syn has had a lot of fails when it comes to protecting those closest to him so now, he's kind of over protective but he means well. What makes him special in my eyes is that despite all his power and all he's accomplished...he still remembers where he came from and gives credit to the little people. That's what makes him so special compared to others of his rank. You'll learn to appreciate his flaws."
    She said as she smiled and moved around a bit, sitting behind Mina as she slipped her arm around Mina's hip and pulled her into the bed. Laying down with her she smiled.

    "I had every intention of seducing you and showing you a variety of pleasures tonight...but I think I'll just stick to the small things."
    She said as she angled Mina's head by tilting her chin and placed a soft kiss to her lips. Smiling after holding the kiss for a few seconds she winked.
    "See. Not so bad."
    She said as she giggled and moved herself a bit more, resting on her elbow as she looked at Mina.
    "Though judging from the look I saw earlier when Cynthia first sat on Syn's lap...something tells me you'd be a lot more responsive if Syn was the one kissing you and not me?"
    She said as she wagged her eye brows and giggled at the girl's reaction.
    "Am I wrong?"

    “I don’t doubt you.” She nodded, knowing the Terra thought very highly of the Demon Lord. Her own assessment, or opinion, wasn’t meant to bring his flaws to light but to put them in perspective—mainly for herself. She was about explain further when she felt Terra’s arm wrap around her hips, tugging her down into the comfort of the bed. Her touch was soft as she confessed to having motives of seducing her, a feat she wasn’t sure was possible. Still, it was difficult not to be drawn into the demon’s allure. It was almost magnetic, and as her faces neared hers she felt herself giving in to the foreign attraction she felt. Mina pressed her lips to hers, finding that her lips were as soft as her touch. The kiss was gentle and fleeting, pleasant but exhilarating despite her inclination to males.

    “Not so bad at all.” She replied, a smile curling onto her lips. She had been kissed before, a time or two by inexperienced boys when she was interested in dating. Terra’s kiss put them all to shame, even in the absence of carnal desires. She was practically dazed, but she was swiftly pulled from her starry-eyed stare at the mention of a moment she had conveniently forgotten.

    “No! I mean, yes you’re wrong. And, what? What look? There was no look.” She denied, pushing herself up onto her elbows. “I was just surprised. I didn’t know that they were so close. They’ve only know one another as long as he’s known me.” Mina offered. “You succubi move quick. It was just . . . sudden, that’s all.” If there were truly nothing there, if she was as indifferent as she portrayed herself to be, then why was she getting so defensive?

    She was certain that the Demon Lord didn’t see her that way. She was young and naïve at times, lazy and stubborn. It placed her in a position to be nothing more than his pupil and his charge. He was powerful, knowledgeable, wise well beyond her own, meager years . . . What could he possibly see in a sarcastic, undisciplined witch with no ambitions in life? They were worlds apart . . . even in the literal sense.

    Mina laid down again, pulling the blankets over her. “There’s nothing like that going on. They’re cute together,” she said, sounding as though she were trying to convince herself.

    Terra smiled as she shook her head, straddling Mina's hips and pinning her to the bed, locking her hands around Mina's wrists to keep her down.
    "Demon's are much more open about their feelings yes. However something that you seem to not notice. Like feral wolves in the human realm, Demon Lord's have certain things that they are required to do. Should a female wish to lay with Syn for the chance of having a strong off spring, he will. If he's mated, then that is no longer a requirement but as a single male demon Lord, that is his duty. To create strong children for this legacy and for the people of his territory. Cynthia also lays with him because she's young and she sees him as a strong male. It's a more primal desire than an intimate one. What Cynthia is having with Syn is merely lust...just like my lust for you."

    She said as she leaned down so that her breasts pressed against Mina's, running her tongue along Mina's bottom lip for a moment before whispering a hair away from Mina's lips.
    "If you had no feelings...if you didn't see him is some hint of a romantic light...why are you so quick to defense and stumbling over your words hmm? Why are you flustered?"
    Smiling a bit Terra leaned in that last hair and gave Mina a much deeper kiss, pushing her tongue into Mina's mouth and letting their tongues dance for a few moments before slowly pulling back.

    "Maybe if you were a bit more honest with yourself you would see how Syn looks at you. Do you really think that just because he felt bad for you, he'd let a Witch into his home? Do you think he'd be so fierce in protecting you? Demon's can sense things that humans and even Witch's can't. Whatever he's sensing in you, he likes it and it shows. Maybe you should try opening your eyes to what's right in front of you for a moment. You might be surprised."

    Terra winked as she rolled off and let Mina up, she wasn't going to tease her anymore now. She'd planted the seed that she intended to. Both she and Cynthia saw the change in Syn when he was around Mina.

    The succubus crawled over her, placing a leg on either side of her frame. The little witch was taken back by the sudden manner in which she pinned her, wrapping her hands around her small wrists and pressing them to the mattress. Mina was too shocked to test the strength of her seducer. It would have been useless, considering even a D-class demon could overpower a mortal physically. But, she never did move. She was statue still while she spoke, pressing her body to hers. A mere sheet separated the heat of their forms, a feeble divider between their sensitive parts. It was a pleasing sensation when paired with her tongue slithering across her lips sensually. Not often was she lusted after. At the academy she was intimidating to the average man, if they possessed that ability to see through all her deflective, quick witted humor and her aloof demeanor. She was exactly the most approachable witch in school, and thus dating didn't come often or easily. Unsurprisingly, she was quite bold when it came to expressing interest, but no one ever held her attention for too long.

    Terra had her full and undivided attention as she spoke, whispering in her ear. The succubus easily picked up on her defensiveness, dissecting it with each word she purred into her ear. She then leaned down, bestowing her lips with a deeper, more intense kiss that left her head swimming in whatever magic or toxin that was laced in her saliva. She felt inebriated, likely a mixture of downing so much wine in such a short time and the heat of the moment.

    When she pulled away, Mina's eyes her still closed. Her lovely pink lips were still glistening and her breathing was heavier. Her chest rose and fell quickly. By the time her bright eyes fluttered open, Terra was rolling off of her and nestling into bed. With the succubus no longer teasing her, the lights went out. Mina was wide awake for quite some time, digesting the knowledge that the sleeping succubus had imparted on her. Was he really so different? She thought to herself, knowing that the Demon Lord seemed to treat all his subject equally-- the females in need of a strong male a bit more tenderly than others. Perhaps she did need to pay better attention . . . To everything, really. It wasn't exactly her strong suit. That in mind, she rolled onto her side and closed her eyes, finally allowing all the excitement of the day to catch up with her.

    When morning came, Terra was up before Mina and dressed in a pair of boy short panties and a sports bra. She walked down to the dining room where Syn was wearing a black silk dress shirt that was untucked with the sleeves rolled up his forearms with a pair of dark blue jeans. Seeing Terra he sighed and shook his head as he looked at Sasha who was sitting beside him with her youngest pup who was about the size of an 8 week old puppy in the human realm.
    "Sasha, please take your pup and go wake Mina."
    He said as the wolf nodded and walked up the stairs to the bedroom. When she got into the room she lifted her pup onto the bed, using her mouth to grip his scruff before dropping him onto the bed.

    The pup then walked his pudgy body onto Mina's side and started sniffing her since she was the first non-demon he'd been close to.
    'Mina. Sleeping in here isn't going to help you enjoy your time off.'
    Sasha's voice echoed into the room as she pressed a cold nose against the heel of Mina's foot to wake her up. After a while, Syn came up and sat on the bed waving a chocolate chip muffin over Mina's face.
    "If you don't wake up...we're going to eat all of these and not share any."
    He said as he stroked her thigh with his free hand while waiting for her nose to inform her what was dangling above her face.

    There was not so much as a stir from the witch when Terra lifted herself from the bed. Peacefully she slept, covered in the silky blankets provided to her by the succubus. Not even when the door opened did she move from her comfortable position on her side. Her long dark hair was fanned out on the pillow since her hair had come loose in the night. At the sensation of something cold and wet against the sole of her foot, she giggled wearily, rapidly jerking her feet under the blankets where they were safe from Sasha's face. She was vaguely aware of another, wobbling along the length of her body, barely able to hear the investigative sniffs from the young pup. He was pawing at her hair and sampling her strands on his tongue, when she lifted the blankets a bit higher. "Sasha . . . Give me two minutes." By two, she meant an hour but she would take what she could get if the Shadow Wolf allowed her. Mina felt a hand on her thigh, the stroking motion soothing though her body recalled the arousing effects of the succubus and her attempts to seduce her.

    "Terra as much as I enjoyed last night . . ." Mina began, her voice lower than normal since she was slowly slipping out of unconsciousness. "I'm strictly dick-ly and I wouldn't budge for a male underwear model swinging wood." She muttered, rolling onto her back. Fortunately the pup had migrated toward her feet. His nubby tail wagging rapidly while he watched the foreign creature.

    At the sound of Syn's voice, she did open her eyes partially. His gleaming red eyes caught her attention more than the sweet, appetizing scent of the muffin he held above her. There weren't too many things she valued more than her precious sleep, but food was certainly a close second.

    "I'm up," she said, propping herself up on her elbows as her vision sharpened into focus. The pup bounded from his place excitedly as she took a bite out of the muffin. "Oh! Sasha, is this your baby? He's so fat! I love it." She cooed as she stroked him, his tail wagging wildly.

    Syn just kept his mouth shut for the most part as he had a rather amused grin on his lips while Mina ate the muffin and babied the pup. Sasha's voice whispering out.
    'He's the youngest of my pups. He's never met a Witch..or a human for that matter, so you are new and exciting.'
    She said as she bumped her nose against her pup to keep him on the bed. Syn looked at Mina, his hand still on her thigh as he chuckled.
    "Strictly dick-ly huh?"

    He said as he laughed a bit then shook his head.
    "I'd be careful how you word things. Succubi can cast a spell to give themselves a dick. Just fyi."
    Giving her backside a small slap he motioned to the pup.

    "Figure out a name for him. He's just been weened from his mother and needs an Owner to teach him how to be a good Guardian. Guess who Sasha picked?"
    He said as he smiled as the fat pup continued to lick her fingers and anywhere else he could reach. Currently he was the size of a pitbull puppy so he was still small and cute and easy to manage, but he'd grow quickly.
    "Get up and out of bed. The rest of breakfast is waiting for you downstairs. Sasha will lead you there."
    He said as he smiled and stood up. Leaving the room he headed for the kitchen and finished his breakfast.

    Syn had a plan of spending the day with Mina himself. Terra and Cynthia would be visiting another Succubus clan that had just come into his territory, getting them up to speed on the rules and laws of his land.

    While she stroked the pup affectionately, she noticed the smile that played on the demon’s lips. When it didn’t go away after some time, she began to grow curious as to why he was staring at her the way he was. After all, he’d seen her in the morning and he’d witnessed the struggle of her maids wrestling her out of bed. Every morning she resisted and pouted, sporting a mildly grumpy mood till she bathed and dressed. It should have been nothing new to him. Mina began wiping at the corners of her lips, thinking she was wearing crumbs on her face till he finally spoke. “Last night was . . . interesting, to say the least.” She admitted shamelessly. Interesting, was putting it mildly. It was her very first female experience and it was surprisingly nice, though it hadn’t gone much further than lustful kissing—and it wouldn’t have gone much further than that, despite all of Terra’s well-honed skills. Something also told her that the succubus wouldn’t have allowed herself to go much further either. The way she was whispering in her ears, chipping away at all Mina’s excuses and defenses, she was clearly content to leave her flustered and wondering . . .

    “Oh,” Mina blinked, fascinated and simultaneous shocked to know that succubi were capable of growing male appendages. Even more so at the good natured pat Syn left on her backside. “Well, it’s a good thing it wasn’t her who was caressing my thigh. I might have awakened in a far different manner.” She chuckled, watching as the little pup collected the tiny morsels that fell into her lap.

    “A name? Wait, you’re leaving him in my care?” She asked, flattered and already feeling the weight of responsibility heavy on her shoulders. Sasha already thought she lacked discipline and good manners, so it was quite a surprise to know that she had chosen her youngest for her. “I’ll be a good charge.” She smiled down at him.

    Syn instructed her to get out of bed and head downstairs before disappearing behind the door. Mina sighed and pushed herself up after polishing off the rest of the muffin. She took the time to make Terra’s bed, moving the pudgy pup from the mattress to the floor so that she could straighten the covers, tuck the corners, and fluff the pillows like she’d seen the maids do so many times. While it was rare for Mina to do her own cooking and cleaning, she didn’t believe she was above such things. It just wasn’t often that she did. After the bed was neat and tidy, she followed Sasha and her pup down the hall and toward the stairs.

    “So, what would you like to be called?” She asked, watching while the pup followed clumsily on her heels, nearly tripping over his own paws.

    “He doesn’t speak yet, Mina. He is still quite young, but he will learn from you quickly.” Sasha informed her.

    “That’s not a comfort at all.” She muttered to herself, thinking of all the foul things she said on a daily basis. “He’ll be telling me to go fuck myself in no time.” Mina smirked, scooping him up in her arms when they neared the stairs. She plopped him down gently at the bottom, making her way to the dining room alongside Sasha. It had been so long since she had actually sat down at a table to eat. She usually ate on the run in the morning and dinner was served wherever she was in the evening, normally her room. Lunch at school counted, but no one expected manners and etiquette in a cafeteria.

    "Where is everyone?" She asked, expecting to see Cynthia and Terra. "Who's going to sit on Syn's lap?" She said under her breath.

    Syn looked at Mina as she asked where everyone was and was about to answer when he heard her little whispered question and smirked. Standing up from his seat since he was done eating he walked over to her chair and lifted her right out of it. Sitting down in her chair he plopped her down on his lap.
    "Seems like you will be sitting on my lap."
    He said as he locked his hands around her waist so that she couldn't try and get off of him, then rest his chin on her shoulder.
    "As for the others, a new Succubus clan moved into the territory last night seeking refuge. Cynthia and Terra are there to teach them the rules and laws of my city. So unfortunately it'll just be me leading you around the festival today."

    Smiling he let his fingers gingerly stroke along her stomach as he sat and waited for her to finish her breakfast. Looking down at the wolf pup who was seriously begging despite his mother growling at him to stop. Syn smirked as he took a small piece of bacon and tossed it away from the table. Given his weight and long legs that he hadn't grown into, it would take him a while to get back to the table.
    "First order of business with him. House trained. Second order, not begging at the table."
    He said as he smiled and placed a small kiss on Mina's neck, right at the nape of her neck.
    "Now. If you're done eating. Are you ready to go out or do you have to doll yourself up or something?"

    He asked this mainly because he knew that any female needed to do something to their appearance before walking around in public. Most males just rolled out of bed and changed. While Mina was a lot more relaxed than most females...she was still a female.

    The smart comment, born partially of jealousy, was not meant for his ears. In the large space, with its high ceilings and open concept, made her voice carry in a way she hadn’t anticipated. She thought the demon would let it slide, continue with his meal, and let her embarrassment wane. He did no such thing. Instead, he beat her to her chair and pulled it out enough to slip into the seat before her. There was no protesting as he took a hold of her waists, pulling her down into his lap and so that her hips were flush to his. It was as though there were nothing out of the ordinary as he pressed himself against her, going on about the whereabouts of the two succubi who kept her company the day before. Syn spoke so casually, as if he were talking about the weather while she was blushing insanely, staring down at her food in shock. Perhaps it was the absence of others that made him so bold, she thought.

    Then again, they’d been alone together many times before. They’d watched movies in her room with the lights out, he peered over her shoulder while she zoned out playing silly phone games. He had tucked her in after she’d fallen asleep from hours of binge watching television shows, or mere minutes after promising to study. Syn had plenty of opportunities to be as forward as he was being now, stroking her stomach and holding her close. It wasn’t unwelcome change, but it was certainly unexpected—even despite Terra’s advice the evening before. The succubus told her to open her eyes, to pay attention to subtlety and what was right in front of her, but this was overt affection. It was nothing she had to analyze and nothing could be misinterpreted. She wondered what must have happened for the sudden change in demeanor around her, if it was something she had done or if it was a matter of timing.

    “I’m looking forward to going back to the festival. I had so much fun last night,” she said, finally tucking into her food. For once breakfast was warm, not something that had to be slathered on bread while she was running out of the door. Her own fault, of course. Mina continued to chat with the demon, going on about how they danced and played carnival games the night before while he fed her portly little guardian. She looked over her shoulder as the young wolf wobbled over, tail wagging as his eyes begged for more table scraps. Unfortunately Mina had cleared her plate.

    “House trained, for sure. I can’t make any promises about not begging at the table. I’ve been known to make puppy dog eyes and ask for table scraps myself, so I don’t know that I’ll be the best example.” She smirked. Her lips fell into a slightly awed expression, her mouth slight open as he pressed a soft kiss to the back of her neck. She actually shuddered in his arms.

    “W-well, not really ‘doll’ myself up. But, I would like to shower and change.” She told him, slipping out of his grasp after a nervous giggle. The air around her without him wrapped around her was colder. “Just give me thirty minutes.”

    She retraced her steps, back up the stairs and to Terra’s room to find clothes. It was difficult to dress modestly when her wardrobe consisted of booty shorts and crop tops mainly. Regardless, she was able to find something suitable to wear before heading off to the bathroom to shower and freshen up. When she emerged, she moved down the steps to the foyer where she would meet Syn.

    Mina wasn't the only one who'd gotten a chat from Terra. Granted his came in the morning before she left to greet the other clan. Basically her telling him to stop treating her like another one of his subordinates that he kept at arms length. Yes Syn was affectionate and kind to his people but not many of them got close enough to him that he'd really open up. Terra was the only one who knew most about him simply because of how long she'd been with him. Terra and Raven were the two closest friends he had, Sasha coming in at third since she came in about thirty years after he took the title of Lord. While Mina was up showering, Syn was sitting in the living room with Sasha.

    "Think I should do as Terra suggested?"
    'Syn. I think you should do what you feel is best. Though I will admit, when you're with that little Witch, you do seem happier. More open and much more protective.'
    Syn couldn't argue with the protective part but at the same time, she was a human Witch. Yes she'd live much longer than a normal human but she wasn't immortal. She could be, but it was a very difficult spell and it usually cost more than most were willing to give. Then again, Demon's had a nifty little trick to bind one's soul to their own but that had to be completely consensual between the two and IF one of the two decided they didn't want the other...it became a serious issue after that. Syn had seen that happen a handful of times. A Witch or Warlock mates with a demon. They share souls then a few centuries later, usually the human, gets bored and cocky about the immortality. What many humans tend to forget is demon's mate for life. So when the human leaves and breaks that bond, both individuals perish.

    Rubbing his face he decided to put that thought on the back burner for now and just focus on the now. Speaking of which. Seeing Mina come into the main foyer he stood up and smiled as he walked over to her.
    "Nice to see you managed to find the rare clothes that cover most of you."
    He said as he chuckled, then slid his hand into Mina's as they walked out of the manor and into the streets of his city. As they walked, several demons stopped and bowed or just waved from across the street. This earned them a polite smile or a friendly wave but if Mina paid attention closely, she'd see that the smile wasn't truly happy. He was just being polite. Yes he cared for his people but it was plain as day that he kept those feelings at a certain level.

    Getting to the festival Syn smiled as he walked over to a vendor and got some treats for the two of them. Paying like everyone else and waiting in line like everyone else despite demon's telling him that he could go ahead of them or the vendors telling him that he didn't need to pay. Syn just shook his head and acted like an average joe.

    "It was hard to find a pair of pants and a top that didn't look like it could double as swimwear. I'm assuming succubi do not get cold very often." She chuckled, allowing him to take her hand in his. It wasn't the first time they had held hands, but it was a notable departure from the times where he led her along or offered up an arm for stability. Mina stared up at him as he led her down the way, bringing her to the streets where his people greeted him respectfully with admiration. Syn didn't seem to relish the formalities, though he did reciprocate the welcoming exchanges that happened often as they traveled to the festival. In the mortal realm, the witch was more than capable of ignoring stares and whispers, the kind of quiet utterances that drummed up feelings of paranoia and unease. Here, she was very aware of the curiosity and intrigue, the scrutiny and shock. Their Demon Lord was hand in hand with a human, and naturally the citizens of the Void territories recognized the considerate and attentive manner in which he regarded her. From what she was told, this was not unusual for their ruler but his apparent interest in her was noted among them.

    As they stood in line, Mina glanced about. "You don't seem to enjoy the attention . . . Not really." She said, moving up when the demons before them purchased their items and moved along. "I suppose you don't really get a break in my world. Even though people don't know who you are exactly, they know that you're different. Stronger, at least. Do you crave normalcy? Is that why you hang around me?" She laughed.

    For the most part, Mina treated him no differently than she would treat anyone else despite his title and his power. In doing so, in the very short time that they'd known one another, she was able to tell when he was putting on a good face for others or not truly enjoying himself. Unless, of course, he pretended to be happy around her, which she didn't think was the case.

    "Also, I wanted to apologize for my comment earlier . . ." She admitted, taking a bag of goodies from the vendor when they finally reached him. "The thing I said about your lap and who was going to sit in it, it was immature. And I don't normally say sorry for being immature, but I understand now that you have a responsibility to the females in your territory and I didn't mean to poke fun." Mina paused on the sidewalk, moving to an open spot like everyone else. As she peered down the road, she could hear drums to the tune of a melody, signaling an oncoming parade.

    "What is this all in celebration of, by the way?"

    Syn smirked as she made her comment about not being thrilled by all of the attention. Moving his hand around her shoulder as he pulled her in close and sighed.
    "No, I'm not too thrilled by it. I spent the better part of my childhood and young adult life alone. So it's difficult to get used to constantly being recognized on the streets when I used to walk these same streets and people treated me like a ghost. I do crave some form of normalcy and yes, that is why I hang around you...but it's not the only reason. You treat me like any other person. You get mad when I do something stupid, and you scold me when I make an ass of myself. No one else does that...save for Raven and Terra. However they have known me for centuries. You've known me a few months. It's refreshing and it's a very pleasing feeling."

    As they walked down the road Syn smiled again, pulling her close so that her back was to his chest, his hands snaking around her waist once more.
    "I don't mind. I found it attractive that you showed a hint of jealousy towards that. You do know about that little catch in being a ruler...but I'm sure you can also guess that it's very hard to find anyone with true feelings toward me. Most just seek the strength and the title. Very very few seek the person behind the title. Again, you don't care about my title, so you can sit on my lap any time."
    He said as he looked up at the festival and his smile faltered a touch.

    "People here only recognize my success, not the other's who died to get me where I am today. So I started this festival a few decades ago. Honoring those that couldn't be here today, as well as my mentor who started the whole rebellion in the first place. Marcus."
    He said as he motioned to a wooden statue being erected and carved to fit his appearance.
    "Back when he died, he was executed on stage in the capital square and is body was tossed to some wild dogs so we couldn't give him a proper burial. Every year, we make that wooden statue and burn it, hoping to somewhat give him an honorable farewell. Bodies are burned here, the ashes spread to the wind to symbolize freedom. While the statue burns, a candle is lit for each life that was given in order to get me here. It really is a sight to see at night."
    He said as he smiled and looked at the wooden statue.

    Heading toward the statue with her he stopped at the base of it and put his hand on the boot of the statue. Closing his eyes he took a moment to pay his respects to his lost mentor before smiling at the people carving the statue. Giving them a nod as they continued their work while he just stood there staring at the face for a long moment. Turning his attention back to Mina he gave a smile, a mask over his mourning.
    "Shall we continue?"

    Syn confirmed her suspicion, admitted his slight aversion to the limelight. She imagine it was tiresome, constantly being acknowledged and regarded with the kind of formalities that were impersonal and obligatory. Though just and ultimately desiring the best for his people, she could see how his position could wear on him. A smile lit her features as he went on to explain that his need for normalcy was, in fact, the reason he enjoyed her company. It filled her with a sense of pride, the kind that she wore like a badge of honor on her lips as they moved down the street. She could only credit her own ignorance. Had she been more knowledgeable and studious, she might have treated him different, not so unlike the passersby who bowed dutifully. When Syn first appeared in the summoning circle, she only knew that he was powerful, able to feel it like a current as the pressure of his energy settled on her. Mina was drawn to him then, and while it was an attraction of intrigue, it was slowly developing into something more . . . Something she hadn't anticipated until recently.

    "I wasn't jealous, I was just surprised." She deflected as he wrapped his arms around her, causing her cheeks to flush. “I thought you might have mentioned something if you two were a thing, or do things together. I mean, none of my business, of course. I just . . . Wasn’t really aware of how things worked around here.” Mina tried to explain, a bit flustered by the way he seemed to enjoy making her squirm and stutter. With the open invitation to his lap, it was difficult not to be flattered and much to her own surprise, aroused. It was much different than the gentle, teasing pleasures Terra had tempted her with. It was abrupt, like having her skin set on fire. It was lust—something she rarely felt for another.

    She saved herself by asking the purpose of the festival. What she learned was that it was held in honor of those who lost their lives fighting for equality and freedom. She stared up at the statue Syn had indicated to, finding it odd that it was one of wood rather than stone. In the mortal realm, monuments were sculpted out of the finest materials, meant to withstand the harshest of elements. Human beings would have been outraged to have their symbols burned, but for the demons it represented something beautiful. A weak smile appeared on her lips as she listened, remembering how the streets were lit beautifully the night before. She believed it decorative then, but there was meaning. “It’s a lovely tradition.” She remarked, noting the traces of sorrow he tried to hide. Mina let him continue to compose himself while they walked together.

    She moved from one vendor to the next, seeing how they delighted in sharing their craft. One demon in particular made the most stunning masks, capable of transforming the wearer into the face they wore over their own. Another made the most potent and fragrant potions, glimmering on the shelves as though they contained entire galaxies. Mina was enthralled as the demoness explained how she procured exotic plants and rare flowers and infused them with ancient magic to concoct elixirs with dangerous and magnificent effects. If only school were so interesting. She felt as though she learned more from walking around for an hour, than she had all year at Kennewick—not to imply that it wasn’t a great learning institution. Mina just responded better to certain teaching styles when she was willing to open her ears.

    “So,” She began, lifting a potion to her eyes to inspect the little tag with all the foreign ingredients listed. “Why the sudden change?” She asked finally. Mina was never one to beat around the bush, but she did spend quite a bit of time trying to understand the suddenness of the Demon Lord’s advances. “I’m not complaining, obviously. I like the attention,” she admitted finally. “But, we’ve been alone countless times before. Is it just that we’re in your home and not mine?”

    Syn smiled as he shook his head, handing a single gold coin to the vendor, buying her an elixir that was specified to opening the mind. It was almost like a drug of sorts, but it wasn't addictive. The Elixir was mainly used for scientists, Alchemists, and other intellectual professions that required a lot of focus and study. The Elixir opened the mind to absorb a lot of information all at once and lasted for a week. It would allow her to effortlessly soak up information, something she'd need for her classes. When she asked about the sudden change of heart he smirked as he pocketed the elixir and looked at her. Sighing a bit he took her hand and walked her to a little bench where he sat down and once again pulled her into his lap, so that her legs were draped over one side of his lap.

    Resting his hand on her thigh while his free arm was wrapped around her lower back to hold her up, he looked at her with a small smile.
    "Looking from my point of view, I never really deal with females who see me as a male. They see me as a Demon Lord, a strong male who can provide strong children, or in the Witch world, I'm a strong demon that they can't control. When I first met you I was intrigued by how free spirited you were but I knew you were naive. You've grown quickly thanks to my presence and forcing you to see things that were right in front of you."
    He said as he was referring to the male who treated her like an alien because she was naturally stronger than he was.

    Stroking her thigh he took her hand in his.
    "Over time, I've grown very fond of spending time with you and just enjoying the small things like watching you play on your phone, watching those horrible horror movies with you, and just walking around with you like now. Terra had to remind me that you're not like the females here who is just seeking a title boost. After remembering that...I decided to show you just how special you are to me. Unlike humans who need trial and error to find those special to them, we demon follow instincts. Mine are focusing on you, so I'm not fighting them."
    He said as he smiled and gave a small kiss to her cheek, carefully turning her chin so that she was looking at him and stroking her chin with his thumb as he smiled at her.

    "Would you accept a lone demon like myself if I showed interest beyond that of a Guardian?"
    He was asking her since he knew that she knew what his duties were thanks to Terra, but she'd also know that IF he started courting her, she could be the deciding factor on whether or not he sent the other females to find other males rather than continuously bugging him.

    She let Syn take her hand, following behind him as he brought them to a bench nearby. He sat down, and though she moved to take a seat beside him, she found herself in his lap. The closeness made her heart race in her chest, so hard and so fast that she thought she could hear it in her ears. Somehow she managed to focus on his words, hyper attentive to the way his lips moved as he spoke. Captivated, she listened while he explained how he’d grown fond of her, how he admired her spirit and her growth—though that was up for debate. Mina hadn’t noticed the subtle ways in which she had made strides to, at the very least, make an effort. Credit was owed to the Demon Lord for pushing her, and though many individuals had attempted to motivate her with incentives and punishment, she only ever listened to him. Wrapped up in her own routine of laziness, she never really took the time to think about why.

    Summoning Syn was somewhat of a triumph, whether she saw it that way or not. Though it was purely accidental, it was a testament to just how powerful she was. All this time she'd been squandering her greatness, ignoring her talent and raw ability, when she could have been something truly spectacular. The cold, ignorant words of her peers were largely ineffective in getting under her skin, but they were not untrue. Mina needed to succeed for herself, and while she took pride in disappointing her parents it was beyond time to grow up and out of old, tired ways. The Demon Lord was capable of inspiring her as he was a living, breathing reminder that she was capable of far better.

    Caught off guard by the gentle kiss he pressed to her cheek, she blinked. Her surprised expression turned to that of a flattered kind of happiness that didn't grace her features often. Presented with the question of possibly accepting him as more than just a guardian, she answered quickly. "Yes." There was no thought involved, just pure impulse. How could she deny him when his hand was gliding up her thigh, when he was cradling her alluring form against him possessively. She was practically hypnotized by his crimson hues as he stroked her chin, holding her gaze intently. " . . . Yes, of course." She said, a bit more slowly after her eager outburst. It was easy to see how pleased the little witch was as she wrapped her arms around his shoulders, pulling him closer and into her embrace.
    The moment between them was intimate, and the world around her seemed to fall away despite all the curious stares they generated. Mina only became aware of them now as her head rested against his shoulder. She opened her eyes and pulled back a bit. "I'd say your people are nosy, but we are giving them quite the reason to stare." She mused at how no one thought it odd that two demons could have intercourse in the street, but a Demon Lord and a young witch had their full attention. Of course it wasn't necessarily what he was doing, but who he was doing it with.

    "Let's feed the animals." She suggested, reluctantly moving from the comfort of his lap to stand. Mina offered him her hand, knowing the way since she had explored the streets the evening before. It was nice to take her time now that her excitement was now a controlled simmer rather than an explosion of energy. She was still amazed at the sights and fascinated by the exotic animals that were practically alien to her own world.

    Hearing her immediate response he smiled but didn't respond just yet. He'd let the effects of her response settle so that she could make a more sound response. When she said yes again, he leaned in and placed a small kiss to her forehead before she rested her head on his shoulder. Stroking her back for a few moments he smiled again, taking her hand as they got up and walked towards the enclosure where the people could feed animals of all kinds. Usually infants of some animals while juveniles of others. Standing beside her and feeding some of the infant animals he smiled a real smile. Infants were completely oblivious to his power or his title, which allowed them to react to him like he was just a normal person. Showing love and affection that was one hundred percent real and true just because they were babies and wanted attention.

    After a good while of that, Syn walked with Mina's hand in his, taking her to large spotting hill. It overlooked the festival as the sun set and soon she'd see the thousands of candles being lit, but from an over view stand point. Resting his hand on her lower back he held her close as they watched the statue burning, and several candles being lit as well. The entire festival was quite for a few seconds, praying and giving thanks to those who fought and died. Then an eruption of cheers rang out as they were celebrating the success thanks to those hardships. Syn smiled a bit as he watched the statue burn till it was embers on the ground. Looking back at Mina he chuckled.
    "Going back to your realm is going to seem so much less exciting."
    He said as he ran his fingers along her hip.
    "Still, any time you wish to come back here and visit, just ask."

    Walking with her through the festival for a little longer, grabbing some dinner along the way, he finally took her back to his manor and as they got inside he walked her toward the stairs where Terra and Cynthia were standing. Both had towels wrapped around their bodies as Terra giggled.
    "So. Syn, we're going to borrow Miss Mina for a little dip in the hot tub."
    Syn chuckled as he knew what was coming now. They wanted details. Looking at Mina he gave her hand a reassuring squeeze before letting Terra and Cynthia drag Mina to her room to change, then heading toward the hot tub. The moment they were all sitting in the water, Terra smiled.
    "Details. What happened?"
