Days, weeks, and months passed since the first night. Ten drew me in countless times and every time, I would want him more and more. As soon as it was over, however, I felt horrible. I was tired. Tired of being his.
About 2 months after he claimed me as his, I started to have nightmares. I saw the same place every night. It was dark, engulfed in flames. I almost always found myself in a building looking outwards at the devastation. Death. It was everywhere. It was driving me insane. This had to stop.
It was 3 in the morning on a quiet night when I woke up with a start. I was in cold sweat and my breathing was heavy. It seemed as if this was the hundredth time I had dreamt this dream. I couldnt take it anymore. Without a second thought, I found myself running out to Ten’s house. I frantically knocked on his door.
“Ten!” I cried. “Open the door!” Not moments, later he was before me.
“Wow, I didnt even have to call you over this time” He ran a hand through his hair and yawned.
“I cant do this anymore” I stared him down.
“I dont recall you having a choice,” Ten snickered.
“TEN IM SERIOUS!” I yelled. Ten noticed my tone and his expression faltered. He quickly pulled me inside and closed the door.
“What are you doing?!” I pulled my arm away.
“Do you want to wake up the whole neighborhood?” Ten asked. I sighed and shook my head. “Now what’s with this all of a sudden?”
“I dont want to do this anymore” I spat out.
“Like I told you before, you dont have a say” Ten put his hands in his sweatpant pockets. I glared up at him.
“Ten, I CANT do this. I feel like Im dying,” I said through gritted teeth.
“Really?” Ten suddenly pushed me against the wall. He lowered his head so that his lips were hovering over my neck. “Because when you scream my name, you sound more alive than ever” He kissed my neck, causing me to shudder. I pushed him away quickly before I gave in again. He stared at me with his red eyes and I shrunk down.
“Stop doing that” I mumbled. “I see enough red when I sleep”
“What?” He raised a brow. His voice was more authoritative and I was a bit too startled to reply. “What do you mean?”
“I-Ive been having nightmares” I looked up at him. Its been a month and i feel like Im going crazy..I-I Ten I cant do this"
“What do you see?” Ten asked, grabbing both my wrists. He seemed alot more serious than he usually was.
“I…I see death…in this place thats full of fire and monsters….Im always stuck in a black building looking out at everyone suffering..” I looked up at Ten. His eyes were red again but as soon as his gaze caught mine, they turned brown again.
“This isnt good” Ten let go of me, “Youre connected.”
“Im what?” I was confused. What did he mean by connected?
“Do you love me?” He blurted.
“No,” I immediately said. “Why do yo-”
“Have you met any other demon?” Ten asked.
“No, Ten what-” I started.
“When was the last time you-” Ten began.
It was my turn to interrupt him.
“Ten!” I exclaimed, causing him to stop. “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!” Ten’s expression became stern.
“I think youre pregnant”
My eyes widened and I stumbled back against the door.
“But you said there was no chance…” I stared up at him.
“No. I said there was less than a 1% chance” Ten corrected.
“Ten dont fuck with me!” I cried.
“Im sorry” He looked down.
I had to get out of there. I turned around to open the door but it suddenly clicked closed. I still tried to open it, pulling frantically. I was getting hysterical and fell to my knees. I was sobbing now.
“Let me go,”
“I want to leave”
“Why?!” I screamed.
“They’re coming after you,” Ten grimly stated. I looked up him through watery eyes.
“Who,” I questioned.
“The supreme,” Ten responded. “They deal with important affairs next to the king and queen of the underworld.”
“Why would they care? You said plenty of demons go out and capture women. This cant be so uncommon if its happening to us” I hysterically stated.
“First, this is extremely uncommon and second, not all demons are heir to the throne,” Ten knelt down to get at my eyelevel. I stared at him in disbelief for I couldnt find the words to say. “They’re going to kill you” I felt my heart drop and my thoughts clouded my judgement. I lurched forward so that Ten was on the ground and i was above him.
“Why couldnt you just leave me alone!” I screamed and hit his chest. Ten did nothing to stop me and let me continue hitting him until I was too tired to do anything. Thats when he sat up.
“Theres another way,” His hands caught mine, locking them in place. I looked into his red-again eyes and waited for him to continue. “I have to mark you”
“M-Mark me? I shook at the possibilities of what he had to do to ‘mark me’.
"In order for a demon to stay with a human forever, he or she must mark them. Once this has happened, that human can not be targeted by other demons but the one who marked them can’t return home either” He explained.
“F-forever?” That word stuck with me.
“We’ll never separate,” Ten’s eyes became brown again. “Now whats your choice?”
“I actually have a choice?” I stared straight at him.
“Marking has to be consensual or it can not occur” Ten nodded. “So whats it going to be ___. Death by surpreme or eternity with me and our child”
I glanced down at my stomach. There was a baby in me. What would it become? Could I love it?
“___,” Ten brought me back from the trance. “ I wouldnt be surprised if the Surpreme already caught wind of our intetions so I need an answer.” Thousands of thought flew through my mind before the answer was clear.
I thought I saw Ten smile but I couldnt be sure. He lifted me up so I was standing and led me to a black door. He opened it and pulled me inside. We were walking into a basement of some sort but unlike normal basements, this one had a giant black, wooden table in the middle. Ten let go of me and started to rummage through one of the many cabinets in the room. He pulled out a round container filled with a red substance before making his way to the table. He popped off the cap and took the liquid onto his fingers. I watched as he wrote something in unreadable letters across the table. Once finished, Ten ushered me over to him. He grabbed my arm and drew a symbol over it before doing the same to himself.
“It’s ready” Ten’s eyes began to glow again as he started to recite some kind of ritual. His eyes locked themselves onto mine and I couldnt look away.
His words suddenly stopped after a few moments. I noticed that our symbols were now glowing along with the message on the table.
“Ten…” his name softly rolled off my tongue.
“We’re almost done,” Ten reached up to touch my face. Slowly, he inched forward until his lips were on mine. This kiss was different from all the others. It was soft and gentle. I found myself melting into it and my hands reached out to grab Ten’s arms. But then suddenly, it felt off. I tried to pull away from Ten but he held me tightly. Something pushed itself inside me, like a spirit. I couldnt move as i felt it move all through my body before settling into my bones.
Ten pulled away, looking down at my shaken being.
“Its done,” he sighed.
“What…was..” my hands let go of him.
“The demonic root.” Ten stated. “ its an entity that each demon male is born with it and once he finds the person he must be with, he transfers it over, making that person his forever. The entity protects the beholder but its only as strong as the one it was tranferred from.”
“Then what about you? W-whos protecting you now?” I questioned.
“No one. But to be honest, I never needed that thing. Im strong enough with out it,” Ten responded. I nodded at his words.
“What now…” I mumbled.
“I dont know…” Ten sighed.
