A Demons story Chapter one:
"So you are here in my castle because…?“, the demon lord raised his brow. The tone in his voice spoke of boredom while the demon lord leaned his head onto his hands unamused. He looked down at the kneeling green boy who finally raised his head to face the lord once again.
Kleyon who was the name of the Demon lord wore clothing that told the boy he was rich and had power, clearly a strong demon but that was not what caught the younger demon, no it was the pretty markings in his face and the long horns which was decorated with beautiful accessories which made him look other worldly
“I was told to go to you because you were alone and my last master thought you might needed a servant to keep you company… so you won’t get… lonley”
that made the demon lord smile but it wasn’t really a smile, more an evil smirk.
“So you want to be my servant hmm?” The Demon lord now stood up as he walked down from his chair that looked like a royal throne. Still he wasn’t the king but close to.
As the Lord stood up the boy did too, still he had his head lowered in respect because he truly was a lower demon actually the lowest, so if he was send to kill him the boy would be killed long before he could even try.
The Demon lord stopped in front of the younger green boy and placed a hand under his chin to lift his head and looked him right in the eyes.
“What is your name boy?” he then asked and the boy lowered his head again as the hand drew back .
“It’s Riak, my lord” the demon lord only shaked his head.
“You can call me Kleyon … Master Kleyon” he then said and tilted his head to the side with a bit curious eyes.
“Can you do more than only cleaning?” that made the boy a little confused
“I don’t really think I know what you mean master?” Riak said a little after and Kleyon only smirked again.
“Can you give pleasure to another?” now the boy understood and a small blush came over his young and beautiful face
“I can assure you my lord that I have been trained to pleasure my master in any kind of way that pleased the lord.” the boy answered and the lord stepped away from the boy, he would make sure to remember that.
“Alright I will let you work here for a week and decide what to do with you after that.. for now you have to convince me that you are the right slave for me and that you deserve to work for me here” the boy smiled and bowed
“Thank you my lord” and the lord only lifted his hand waving at the boy
“There’s a guest room down the hall, you can start making the dinner once you have found it” and after that the demon lord walked away to the library to work.
Some hours have passed and there was still no sign of the demon lord from earlier, he must still be in the library reading. Did he really had so many books and why spent so much time in the library when he could do other things?
Soft steps were moving over the floor, there was a faint sound of porcelain against metal. On a tray was a little cup with a spoon and a tea can.
The green boy thought it would be a nice time to bring some tea to the lord just as a friendly gesture.
When he finally arrived at a big door with a lot of paintings he stopped. The beauty of the paintings caught the boy’s eyes and smiled shortly, then gently knocked on the door.
“Master Kleyon I have some tea for you, I thought it would be nice to have some tea before dinner” the boy calmly said as he opened the door.
Inside was a bit room filled with books, there must have been thousand of books in there, all in different sizes and standing in a fine order. And not to talk about the size of the room, it was like a small labyrinth.
When the boy finished his fascination about the amount of books he finally found the lord, but what he saw made him feel uneasy.
In front of him stood the lord whispering as some dark magic was flying around him. He was like in a trance and continued mumbling demonic words as the dark magic filled the room around him.
When the tray with the tea and porcelain hit the floor the demon lord came to himself again as he closed the book and all the dark magic disappeared. His almost white eyes meet the boys own blue and there was a short moment of silence.
“Riak.. I.. I didn’t hear you did you knock before entering?” the lord now asked as the boy only nodded slowly, it was clear that there was a little hint of fear in the boy’s eyes but there was also a bit of curiosity in what that black magic was.
“W…what was that” the boy asked, while he still looked a bit scared from what he just saw.
The Demon lord shook his head as he lifted his hand and made a sign for him to come closer
“Come here, and forget the broken porcelain” he said with a pretty calm face, almost to calm from how he was earlier… almost like a different person.
“What you just saw Riak was a fraction of my powers” he took a little pause before he continued as he placed a hand around the younger green boy, pulling him closer, to show him his other hand that he held out in front of the boy’s face.
Slowly some dark magic appeared into his hand, moved around his fingers and formed itself as a black bird.
The bird turned its head then flew up and moved its way around the room, before it blew up into 3 black butterflies.
“My power may be dark magic but that doesn’t mean it’s pure evil as some demons are telling” the butterflies flew over and all three of them landed in Kleyond’s hand. He closed it and held it in front of the boy’s face again and when he opened it, the butterflies had turned into a beautiful black rose.
“Dark magic can also be beautiful” as long as he could control the strong power dark magic had, there was no danger to fear.
The great demon lord Kleyon who has many stories and rumors about him, about how dangerous he can be. He, who also seemed to make the boy nervous at first, suddenly seemed to be gone and Riak was starting to see his soft side under the hard and serious shell. Maybe it was because he finally had gotten company after all those years of being alone.
The green boy liftet his head from the rose as he faced the lord once more
“how can you master this so perfectly? I have heard that Dark magic is a very hard thing to learn” and the Demon lord only nodded as he chuckled a bit.
“when I was younger I was chosen by the great demon king, me and some other demons were tested to see how we reacted on the strong power the dark magic had, it turned out that I was the only one who had the strongest willpower to hold the magic inside of me without any trouble” the lord was sending the green boy a little smile as he sat down on a chair, making a gesture with his hand to the boy that he could sit down as well, and so he did.
Riak nodded as he seemed to understand but there was still something that bugged
“but why all this with the magic and tests? Why does the demon king do that?” Kleyon only sended the boy another smile as he lifted one leg over the other when he leaned back in his chair.
“to hold balance….” He stopped himself as he breathed out to then continue on what he was going to explain.
“All demons has a chance to be chosen by the great demon king to get an element of magic to keep up the balance in the world. There is 8 elements 4 main elements and 4 side elements and If there isn’t any demons to keep up the Balance, the world would corrupt into chaos, then there wouldn’t be any summer and only winter or maybe only summer or no rain or wind. Every time a demon lord dies or chose to give up on their power the demon king takes the power and can hold onto it until a new demon takes over it, so it’s up to us to keep up the balance all the time… do you understand?” Riak nodded and seem really interested in what he heard but there was still one thing he needed to know.
“what about the humans then?” he now asked
“ah yes the humans, they are very important for the world to live, without them or other animals we would not be able to live. We live in harmony with them as good as possible, still there is some human villages were people hasn’t really accepted us … guess they have grown too much power or so they think.” He then said as he let out a smaller sigh.
Some humans didn’t accept that they were the lowest species and hated the demons because they think they destroy the world with their power and magic, some didn’t even like magic, but others started to learn and could end out being dangerous so that was also what keeping up balance meant.
Kleyon was giving the boy a little thinking look as he tiltet his head to the side then sended him a smaller smile as he finally opened his mouth to speak once more.
“you seem like an interesting Boy Riak, you kinda remind me of someone I used to know some time ago…” he was holding a little pause.
“sadly he passed away some years ago” the green boy seemed worried about hearing that but his curiosity got stronger and pushed him to speak.
“was it family related?” and the Demon lord only shaked his head then chuckled.
“no he was a worker for me that ended in being really close to me, you could say he was like a son to me” and a small sigh leaved his mouth as a lovable smile came across the demon lords lips.
