me: i think im going to start the day off slow, take my time, leisurely enjoy things– @cryptidsp00n, lifting a bag of fucking bricks and power-slamming me from behind, knocking me unconscious instantly: THINK AGAIN
You know, for a fact, that this might just be where the true test lies. You have always found it difficult to free this particular man from his shackles, from the clutches of his Sin, but you cannot give up on him.
Interestingly enough, he is the youngest of them all, despite being a dangerous soul, and has a foreboding power in him, despite his cheerful exterior. He is nearly as perilous as Superbia—whom you will have to face next—and definitely uglier, in the sense of his personality.
You shake your head, and sigh, as you approach a dead-end: or so it seems.
“Ostium.” You think, eyes boring into the weathered bricks, trying to focus your power on opening the door. Lucifer specially crafted this, you know, to hold high-level demons, the most treacherous of them all…and Invidia is simply a visiting guest. Well, a recurring guest.
After a serious fight with her best friend Mal, Alina accidentally wishes for The Darkling, also known as the Goblin King, to take him away and he, who had fallen in love with her, grants the wish.
Once she realizes her mistake she tries to get the Darkling to free her friend, but he is relentless and tells her that
the only way to free the boy is to solve his labyrinth in less than 13 hours or stay in the boy’s place. Alina, thinking it’ll be an easy task, chooses to solve the labyrinth, surely she can save them both.
What follows next is an adventure full of magic, unexpected friends and allies, dream ballroom sequences with dresses as black as the King’s magic and offers of eternity of servitude and love. Will Alina solve the labyrinth and save both her and Mal? Or will the Darkling win the deal?
