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".
The next thing the angels saw were two large angels coming at each other with full force. The impact of their collision created a large bang that shook the pillars of the arena making the angels gasp in shock and fear. Michael intended to make the first move by swinging at Lucifer's face but Lucifer was already ahead of him. He blocked his arm and gave him an uppercut, sending Michael flying to the other side of the arena. Some angels winced at the impact while Gadreel and Adriel smiled subtly. There was no way Michael can beat Lucifer, he was going to die at the end of the day.Michael stood up immediately much to everyone's surprise. He had collected a lot of blows and hits from Lucifer before so he was used to it. He didn't really have a plan other than to try to hit Lucifer as hard as possible to weaken him, but even that seemed impossible because Lucifer had never shown weakness. He was so engrossed in his thoughts, he didn't notice that Lucifer was running towards him.
The angels in heaven were silent, except for Michael whose low groans could be heard echoing throughout the arena. They were waiting patiently for the large smiling angel to make a move. Lucifer removed the key from his neck and admired it. Finally, he had everything he wanted. All those times of scheming and dealing with the angels insubordination were over. His eyes went round the arena, eyeing the quivering angels then right before their eyes, he disappeared.He reappeared right in front of the very door he was banned from. he felt like the door knew he was the winner of the tournament because when he placed the key into the hole, it disappeared and the door opened. The floors that were surrounded by flames were now free and the sword was no longer out of reach. Lucifer's eyes widened, he couldn't believe his plan worked. He couldn't believe that God was so dumb to let all these happen. He walked in majestically with his hand stretched out.When his fingertips
The cries of war filled Lucifer's ears immediately. A horde of angels came after his subjects, their swords and spears clashing with one another's. The archers from atop the arena did not hesitate to shoot their arrows at unexpected opponents and soon after golden dust began to fill the air. Lucifer smiled broadly. He knew his angels had more advantage over the warriors of heaven, he had no fear. Instead of joining in the fight, he simply went to sit beside Michael's body which had not moved from its place. Surprisingly, he was still conscious but his hand was slowly withering away. Any angel that attempted to come at Lucifer did not even make it pass the center of the arena as Lucifer's allies struck them down with haste.The cherub pretended as though the sounds of the angel's cry was but a lullaby and focused his attention on Michael, who was glaring with all his might. Lucifer scoffed and raised an eyebrow in amusement, the ability for Michael to endure much pain was his
Nahamani hesitated to raise her head up to admire the hall despite the indirect order God gave her. There was silence after he had asked that question a few minutes ago and she had delayed in replying simply because she was still baffled that she had not being killed by the maker and that he was speaking to her at this very moment."Nahamani?" God called again. Nahamani gasped, he knew her name. He had acknowledged her presence. She decided to speak so she would not incur his wrath."M--my lord". She replied in a mere whisper. She knew he had heard her but it was extremely disrespectful for her to reply in such low tone."Your thoughts are quite amusing to me, calm yourself". He said softly. Nahamani tried to breathe in and out but she felt like she was constricted of air."You will not die if you breathe right Nahamani". God spoke again. Hearing him call her name did nothing to ease her tension. God did not speak to her again, he let her be while he watc
As Nahamani flew back down to the war zone, the blurry figures of angels began to clear up. Many of them had been slain and the few that remained were either protecting Michael or hiding in fear. The injured yet brave ones still threw themselves at the betrayers any chance they got. The buildings were in no better shape. The arena had been completely destroyed and the chaos had spread to the other beautiful parts of heaven. It turned out that while Nahamani conversed with the most high, Lucifer had instructed his angels to desecrate God's temples because none stood tall as before. Everything was in a mess and all hope looked lost but Nahamani no longer harbored the fear she had earlier. With new found determination, she flew with haste towards Beth who laid on the floor severely injured. A large chunk of her hair had been pulled out from its roots and her body was filled with bruises, Adriel had taken her time to torture her. The bright light that outlined her tall frame had g
Lucifer watched amused as Adriel laid underneath Nahamani's new form. The latter was not generous enough to let her protect herself and occasionally, Lucifer would laugh at Adriel's attempt to cover her head. By his side, Gadreel fought off the angels that tried to protect Michael. As always, anyone that came too close to him found themselves in several parts of the arena with their bodies rearranged. Unlike the others, Lucifer did not act as though he was fighting against anyone. He was overly confident and he only took pleasure in watching the others suffer for his sake.While the screams of angels beside him was like music to his ears, he watched Nahamani and Beth tower over Adriel's frame. A scoff escaped from lips when Adriel looked at him, pleading with her eyes for help. She should have known what she was getting into, she should have known he would do absolutely nothing to help her not after she had messed up.He smirked at her in response and Adriel's shocked
Anger, determination or pain. Michael had no idea which one drove him to lunge after Lucifer like that, all he knew was he did and it felt good. He was happy that he could finally defend heaven like he was supposed to, he was happy that God had not forgotten them and Lucifer could finally pay for his evil against them and the most high. He remembered the look on Lucifer's face throughout the entire battle. Yes he had already become cruel before then, but the moment he took up the sword he became a monster. There was no redemption for him not because God couldn't give it to him, he simply did not want it.A cloud of smoke blocked his view for a minute as he stayed on the air, but when it cleared up a large hand greeted his face. Michael's head jerked back and he gnashed his teeth in pain. When he faced his front again, Lucifer growled and came after him. They used their hands to attack themselves on the air, they either scratched or hit one another repeatedly. It didn't help t
