“You realize why I don’t want him around you alone right?” He didn’t look at you.
“I know you don’t like him. heaven vs hell…yeah a cliche battle.” Your gaze was to the ground just like his was. The old cathedral had been abandoned for years, and it seemed to be Balors favorite place to go to wind down.
“It’s not the only problem..” he slid his hand into your lap. God he knew what to do every time. Sometimes you felt so weak, he made you weak. “I’ve waited a very long time to have you. You’re going to carry the future of my kingdom soon.”
That thought made you shiver.
“That’s what you’re worried about?”
Balor squeezes your knee.
“No. Stop. That’s not it. Believe it or not I get tired. I don’t want to be stuck another lifetime dealing with this shit.” He scooted closer to you. A second later his arm was around your shoulders. “I just want to spend what’s left of my existence in peace.”
“In peace? That’s not very Demon like of you.” Your head rested against his shoulder.
“Yeah well when you’ve spent hundreds upon thousands of years doing the same shit day in and day out eventually you start looking for something different. You were the first good thing I’ve had. Now we can start our own legacy…and hopefully when our little prince or princess grows old enough they can take my place.”
He sighed. It was actually quite nice here. Maybe one day he could fix it up enough so you two could stay there once in a while.
“And I can just spend time with you.” His lips pressed to your head. “Make up for the times I’ve been a dick.”
A small shared laugh.
“That would be nice.”
