*****************************

I knew we had been in the mortal world a long time. I also knew I didn’t care. It was frowned upon, of course, to have such familiarity with the living world. As demons it was our job to destroy and ruin, not to enjoy. It was alien to be here. We were not created for this place. We were strangers to all its wonders. After all, we were The Master’s children. And The Master despised this place and all the mortals who inhabited it. Demons, that’s what the humans call us. But what are we? Shadows. Pale reflections of The Master, created by him and for him. Most of us can’t speak, can’t learn, most are the mindless minions of The Master. We were created to serve and obey. Few, very few...are like me. I’m not so mindless. I am the servant of My Master, but I can learn. I can speak. I can listen. I can think. It’s all the better to serve him, of course. Who better to carry out his plans then one like him?

But why am I thinking of all this now?

I looked over at my sleeping Axl. His face was buried in the crook of my arm and his arm was thrown lazily around my waist. Had I ever seen such a more perfect sight? Never. And to think my beautiful Axl was despised and feared by my brothers. But mortals worshiped him. But then again, mortals would worship anything, wouldn’t they?

Lust. Eros. Cupid.

A god of love? Certainly not. But lust manifested itself into a perfect form? Oh Yes!

He caused the most awful desires in mortals, drove them mad. I had watched him do it. He could make brother lust for sister, friend after friend. He destroyed mortals through their own carnal desires.

I laughed softly and bent down to kiss his forehead. He was a perfect vision to look at. And so...I was afraid to admit...innocent looking. But it was all a lie. He was no more innocent and pure than...well, than the Master was just and good.

“Have you really become this careless?”

My whole body tensed and I looked up, ready for a fight. But I had recognized the voice. I glanced up at grinned sheepishly, feeling the blood rush to my cheeks. “Oh. It’s you. What are you doing here?”

Izzy was in mortal form too. But not even that could disguise the malevolence and power he had. His human lips set in a firm line and his dark eyes boring holes into me. He had once been in my position. He was once the leader of the Hell Hounds. But years ago he had been demoted and I had taken his spot. No questions were raised over it and Izzy never gave answers. Even now, though, I had a distinct feeling he didn’t like me. He had always obeyed my orders, always had followed whatever I had said...and yet...Yet, I could feel his contempt, his disdain for me. I don’t think he saw me fit for his rightful job.

Not that it was a concern of mine. I had made it this far, hadn’t I? Whatever had disgraced Izzy had been his own fault. He was no longer fit to lead and I was.

“What are you doing here?” I asked again.

He kicked at the dirt with one foot. “I’m looking for you, sir.”

I sat up, careful not to disturb my Axl. “I don’t believe you.”

He laughed. It was a harsh sound, almost bitter. Nothing like the sweet musical sound of Axl’s laugh. With Izzy it almost seemed like it didn’t belong. “Was is there not to believe?”

“You followed us here.”

He laughed again. Axl stirred and his grip around my waist tightened, but his eyes never opened. “Follow you?” Izzy hissed. “My good master, I have duties to take care of. I have far more important things to do then tailing you and your whore!”

“Liar.”

For a brief moment, he bared his teeth and his face twisted into a horrible grimace. My body tensed as I thought he would attack me. But he soon shrugged it off. “Sir,” he said, the malice flowing out of him, it was practically tangible. “My great and foolish leader, we were worry about you. We are your pack, your brothers...but you dismiss us. You forgo your duties and spend all your time with the whore. It’s not healthy, sir. I merely came here to bring you back to our world.”

I felt a horrible rage growing inside me. A deep hatred threatening to swallow me up. “Is that a challenge, Izzy? You dare to say things to your leader? Your master?” My voice sounded thick even to my own ears.

His face remained impassive, only his eyes glittered with anger. “Of course not, sir. I’m only expressing my concern for you.”

I slowly stood up, laying Axl carefully on the forest floor. “I’m not forgetting my duties. I still serve the Master.”

He smiled and it sent shivers down my spine. “Forgive me, sir. I don’t doubt your loyalty. Come back with me? We want a meeting with you.”

I looked back at my Axl one last time. He still looked so gorgeous. If only they knew the pleasure I knew...

I shook my head. Best not to think that way. “Yes, Izzy. A meeting is in order.”

He nodded and together we left the mortal world. We left my Axl all alone there.

He’d be safe, I thought to myself. What could harm such a glorious being?

I agree with chickenpattysan. Very nice. And no, it's NOT Anne Ricey.

*grumbles at the very idea*

Nice :). Poor Slash, a demon with a troubled soul (if he's got a soul, that is).
