The night was sleepless and Victor laid on the chair beside Clara’s bed. Something had kept him up the entire night, tugging at his mind it wasn’t clear but he knew it was a message. Distorted by something it simply rang in his mind, he had moved into Clara’s room for a moment of peace. She was sound asleep on her sheets, her body bare he took a sheet an covered her as his mind was tearing him apart. Groaning slightly he sat down quietly into the chair beside her bed, looking to her he thought of lustful thoughts and many other things. Finally the white noise that had filled his mind all night had subsided and he breathed a sigh of relief. He sat back in the chair and looked into the midnight sky, closing his eyes he was able to rest for just a brief moment.
Suddenly his mind exploded and a guttural scream erupted from his throat. The instant the pain began he heard her voice, an angelic one inside such a demonic creature. Her name was Stephanie, he couldn’t tell her why he named her that but it fit so very well. Memories of watching her run around the Arena turning into a dragon and unleashing holy hell onto her opponents filled his mind. She was only three when she began fighting and she was just as bad as a hellion when it came to fighting. She hadn’t been hatched long when she was sent to hell, simply because of her species. She was a miracle in many demons minds, her species had been long dead yet she came to be on a lust filled sex night. Born in gore and sinew as she burst from her mothers rib cage. Feasting on her remains Victor found her shortly after her decent into Hel. In his time in Hel Victor raised her from an infant into a grown woman in only a year’s time. Hel fluctuated in a different way when it came to time, thus she grew to adulthood very quickly.
When he had escaped Hel, Stephanie was to guard his escape then once the time proved proper join him, but that wench Hela closed the portal before she could leave with him. Her message was short but very vivid, in the time that he had been gone Hela took her anger out on Stephanie. And because of that his little Stephanie was near death, her skin almost gone she was nothing like the beautiful girl he left in Hel. She tried to reach him for sometime, only now succeeding and she came with a simple message “Victor...no...Dad. I wanted to tell you, I do not feel anger towards you. I stood by you until the very end, which will be soon. As that bitch closed the portal I had nothing but happy thoughts because you were free. An if that meant I had to stay then so be it, good bye Dad.” Then the message ended, and Victor’s nose and ears were bleeding. She had gone through alot of trouble to send him that message, had to please alot of telepaths to get them to agree to helping her. As he reeled from the experience Clara had awoken from her sleep, he stood up wiping his nose and dug into her dresser tossing her a shirt “Get dressed we are leaving...NOW!” With that he stormed from the room and in a very loud telepathic message woke everyone within the Plateau. “Meet me in the conference room in five minutes, gear up because we are leaving soon.” A voice spoke up, and Victor angrily replied “We are going to Hel! Seems I didn’t bitch slap that wench enough when I was down there, she has broken something of mine.”
Five minutes later everyone was gathered around the conference table, all looking groggy and confused as to why they were woken so early. Victor stepped into the light from the shadows adorned with his battle armor and his ebony blade at his side. “While I was in Hel, I raised a half demon half dragon child. Her name is Stephanie, and I thought she died in the fight that got me here. I was proven wrong not ten minutes ago, she came to me to say goodbye. But I will not let that happen, if she is close to death than I will be there for her. An immediately after she dies, I am going to plunge this blade down that f%cking bitches throat. An leave her there still alive to be raped by every demon she has wronged in her stint as its ruler. Everyone needs to know that Hel is a vicious and brutal place, simply standing in Hel is a difficult thing. As all the minds of every soul ever punished in it cycle through your minds. Thus they will try to show you and do things to you that will seem real. They are not, fight through them.” Victor turned his back and began to walk out stopping only for a moment “Velik and the Demon Five are gathering their energies to open a portal, be there in ten minutes if you are ready for this. If not, move your stuff from the Plateau and the Underground into one of the towns below.” Victor was serious he knew Clara and Flucks would follow. But the devotion of the others has yet to be shown, and tonight it will be.
