Adriel and Gadreel stood at the center of the big hall. The hall of praise but at this moment, the hall of judgement. Something like this has never happened before, so the angels were unsure of what to do. The games were halted after the incident with no winners and the welcoming of the new angels did not commence either. No one even cared about that anymore. They were more interested in the trial of Adriel.
She had killed a fellow angel. She had acted out of anger, a trait that was not common in the heavens. Everyone was at peace with each other. Happy, joyful. Where did she get the anger from?
Kemuel, a very important cherub stood in front of Adriel, the crowd staring back at him, waiting for him to begin the trial. His long white hair cascaded down his back even to the floor, brushing it graciously whenever he moved. His pale skin glimmered as the lights from the heaven shone on it and his blue eyes stared at Adriel with disgust.
"People of heaven
Lucifer gracefully walked over down the hall. The angels watching him in silence. He then picked Adriel up by one hand and Gadreel by the other. With a straight face, he stared at Kemuel who was about to complain about his actions."I set the rules for the game. I get orders from the maker. It is my judgement that will stand over yours and I wish to torture them and kill them myself". He said. Kemuel sighed and then bowed down slightly, a sign of surrender. With a smirk, he turned around and dragged them out of the hall. He did not speak to them and they did not speak to him. Lucifer could tell they were frightened, not only from their faces but from the way their hands shook in his. He made his way to his chambers and pushed them into it. Adriel and Gadreel fell to the ground but they quickly stood up and bowed to Lucifer not daring to look at his face.Lucifer then shut the door and stared at them with crossed arms. He was beyond furious with them. He really intended
"You don't know who has the key?" Adriel asked in shock. Lucifer growled."I told you to stay there and shut up!" He yelled. Adriel looked down at her feet again. She needed to do something that will make Lucifer be pleased with her again."Why would the maker not give the key to you?" Gadreel asked. Lucifer had no idea to that question. Had he chosen someone else over him? Even if he did not want to serve anymore, he wanted to be the one to leave not for him to be kicked out. That will be humiliating."I do not know". He said then paused. He remembered that he had to address the angels concerning the situation of the competition and the fate of his followers. The new rank will not be given and neither will there be any new angels because the tournament was stopped. But then how will he get Adriel and Gadreel to live freely and come up with a lie good enough for the angels in heaven?He then remembered Nahamani and the two angels he had kept in the
Nahamani acted on impulse and ran towards the door. Gadreel went after her but Lucifer brought out his hand, stopping him. She tried telekinesis again and her head started to hurt. She screamed as she fell to the ground. Lucifer and the others watched her struggle and fail to open the door every time."I think a wise person would have known by now after so many attempts that the door cannot be opened". He said mockingly. She turned to him with a glare but Lucifer still had an amused smile plastered on his face."Let me out". She demanded. Lucifer shook his head."Why should I. The one thing that is keeping you here, you refused to give to me". He said. She scoffed."You will kill me if I do". Why was he enjoying playing her like this?"Then you will at least die obeying orders. You love to do so don't you?" He asked even though he knew the answer. She frowned at him and attempted to open the door again hurting herself the more."Why do you e
"THEY DID WHAT?" Kemuel yelled. Michael and Lucifer were standing with him, both of their hands crossed. When Michael had passed the information to the angels, Lucifer had anticipated they would be scared and confused. It was in this state of confusion, he will pretend to be their savior and get them to be on his side.He was very unbothered. He needed to get that key from Nahamani very soon. He knew that the lies he had been telling would not hold on for much longer."Master how could you not hold them?" Kemuel asked in an accusing tone. Lucifer eyed him cautiously. Kemuel could be a huge problem to him and he would not mind killing him if he had to."I didn't hold them. I let them walk freely". He said. The angels started to murmur after this."Why would you do that, they are traitors, they could escape". He half yelled. Lucifer sighed."To where?" Kemuel closed his mouth after this."They are traitors yes but they are angels who sho
Lucifer stared at the key with so much admiration. This was the moment he had been waiting for and now his supremacy was closer than ever. He stared at Nahamani. His eyes had returned to its normal color and they were sparkling in excitement. The angel he was staring at however ,was not as excited as he was. Lucifer crouched down to meet her eyes and he smiled. He was not actually planning to kill her but he knew he would have to because she will try to expose him."Kill me already". She said. Lucifer shook his head."Death is the easy way out. I've always said that, the best way for a person to understand the gravity of their actions is through torture". He said with glee."You're losing your mind". She replied him. Lucifer shrugged."I've already lost it". He reached out for the key on her neck. Nahamani couldn't move because of how her neck was sour from Lucifer's assault earlier. Lucifer however when he reached for the key got shocked by it. He
Lucifer was in the same room with Adriel and Gadreel and they were all silent, each of them deep in their own thoughts. Lucifer had kept Nahamani back in the white room after making her unconscious so the white room wouldn't make her mad. She still had the keys but he knew she had no other choice but to give it to him. If Lucifer wanted, he could wake her up, open the forbidden door and take the sword and that will be all. But he wanted a dramatic reveal. He wanted to show off.Adriel however was thinking of how she could get the attention of Lucifer again. She had messed up badly and now she was being replaced by Nahamani. She was thinking of several ways she could punish her before killing her off. She didn't know what Lucifer was planning but she knew one way or another, it will be huge and she wanted to be a part of it.Gadreel's mind was filled with thoughts of anger and boredom. He did not understand why Lucifer played the sick games instead of taking what
Lucifer was dancing in his chambers, humming to himself. Once in a while, he will twirl and laugh then continue to sway left and right. He was happy because everything was falling to place. Once he eradicates the cherubs, he will no longer have to listen to the gibberish of following God and it will be easier to convince the other angels who already looked up to him or were now scared of him.Lucifer heard a light knock at his door."Yes?" The door opened slightly and Michael came into view. Lucifer stopped his little dance and faced him completely. He did not want to do anything to him, but he knew how loyal Michael was to God. He knew that very soon, he and his favorite angel would be on opposite sides."I came here to find out the names of the contestants for the tournament". He said. His tone was not laced with admiration anymore. This time it was just very formal. And he did not call him master. Lucifer stared at him and with a sigh, and took a sit ac
The arena was filled with every angel in the heavens but unlike the first time, it was dead silent. No one was as enthusiastic as they were before. Everyone was tensed up, Lucifer was going to pick ten of them at random and they all knew deep down that he was not going to make the games as easy as they were before.After a long period of silence, Lucifer made an appearance with Adriel, Gadreel and shockingly to everyone else, Nahamani. Carshena stood up from her sit as she saw her checking her to see if she was okay. Nahamani gave her a slight nod that eased her temporarily. Her gaze then shifted to Lucifer and she glared at him. Lucifer came to stand in front of the arena, still holding Nahamani on his arm. His golden eyes scanned the entire arena. He saw that every angel was terrified and it made him happy. This is how a ruler should be."Angels! It is my great pleasure to announce the names of the contestants of this tournament. You should consider yourself worthy".
