A Painful Love, Part 1
By JJP, Staff Writer
So, this is not a normal love story. It will be dark and scary at times, but if you’re still reading, welcome to hell/love.
To get you up to speed, my name is Lilith. I’m 17 years old, and I’m a monster-person-thing (?). To be honest with you, I don’t know what I am. My best guess is that I am half demon and half lion. Weird, I know. But I have the amber eyes from the lion side of things, and as for the demon part…well, I’m still finding that out myself.
But, anyway, I live in the underworld with my little brother Leo, my mom Amara, and my dad Ebba. Very meaningful names, I know. We are that type of family.
The Underworld has a school called “Hell Academy.” Yeah. The best part is when you get to say, “I’m going to hell, mom – see you later!” What I’m saying is true, but it’s not really that bad.
Around the school, I’m kind of popular (I guess)…I don’t really know when I became popular, but it just kind of happened.
There is one thing in my life that is just out of my reach: a girl named Luna. She’s a full demon, but she is just so beautiful. She has the most beautiful red eyes and jet-black hair that just reaches her hips – her style is simply awesome. In short, she’s equal parts hot and dangerous without even trying…I almost hate her for it. I’ve tried talking to her, but she usually just looks me up and down, then walks away.
But this day was different. She walked up to me and said, “You are SO cute when you’re mad.” I thought my heart actually stopped beating the instant her voice entered my ears. I said nothing, just looked at her – not letting myself believe that she actually talked to me.
Now it’s later in the day, and a weird text comes in from an unknown number:
meet me in your backyard in 5 minutes
is all it says…
