Romanus watched from a distance as the beautiful manor burned to the ground. He knew that Demitri, the dark angel, was responsible. He was always responsible for crimes of passion in the region. Demitri is an evil genius. Romanus knew that better than anyone. When a young mortal named Phoenix arrives in his hometown with Bailey, the woman he is in love with, Demitri is waiting. He has plans for the mortal couple. He needs to cover up a mistake he made, and a human sacrifice will do just fine.
Demitri emerged from a brine of large bubbles as he took mortal form. He looked at the humongous black and grey clouds in the sky, all coming from Gorgie Manor, and smiled. He was responsible for all of it… one of his better accomplishments. But he noticed that Romanus wasn't happy.
Fingers ran through Romanus' hair. Demitri loved to care for angels who were sad. It aroused him. He brought the darkness, and he could take it away.
Romanus shook his head. "I didn't want this," he said, pointing at the smoke.
"I had to make sure he was gone for good," Demitri said.
Romanus felt the lime green tears in his eyes well up, and he wiped them away. "How can you say that?"
"The mortal who lived in that house was trying to take something from me, and I couldn't let that happen. He was a threat," Demitri said.
"You fell in love with a mortal, didn't you?"
Demitri refused to answer.
"When did it happen? Did it involve the couple in the cabin?"
Demitri was disappointed in himself. He didn't want anyone to know.
