Damon has been trapped in the earth for hundreds of years, now he's out, he's looking for his trappers descendant and the sweetness of revenge.
Then he meets Arella.
And it all goes to hell...


1. Chains


I roared, the sound echoing of the muddy, compact walls of my tomb. My primal growl shook lose pieces of dirt that rained down around me.

Damn this god forsaken hovel and these damned chains that’s bind me!

I pulled and strained against them, the chains imprinting themselves into my skin as they

grew impossibly hot and scolded me. Branded me as a being meant to be trapped.

Damn you, Sera to the deepest pits of hell from whence I came!

I remembered the day she`d lured me down here, her coy smile and heated eyes promising me divine pleasure, only to realize she`d been sent to trap me.

That had been decades, possibly centuries ago. I had no sense of time passing. Down here deep in the earth, I couldn’t tell when one day ended and another began. For all I knew the whole world had been destroyed by the advances in science I had witnessed during my last short stay.

  “Sera you cannot just leave me down here for the rest of eternity!” I shouted at the top of my lungs, but I knew she wouldn’t hear me and, if she did, there was no way she`d pay any heed to it. Once trapping an untouchable beast, you don’t let it go simply because it asks you to.

My skin still burned and smoldered under the chains that wrapped around me from head to toe. Of course, everything that kept me immobile was enchanted; the only key able to unlock the chains from me was the words of the being that trapped me.

Or a descendant of hers.

Yes, the small child I'd seen balanced on her slender hips. The child’s children were still out there, the descendants that would pay with their lives for their grand, maybe even great-grandmothers, mistake. Sera`s latest descendant was the only one that could save me, and would pay with their life for it.

Help. I thought, seeking out Sera`s blood in those above, drawing the essence to me like tangible smoke. Come help.

There was suddenly an invisible pressure against my forehead, pressing against the same spot Sera had kissed to enchant me to stillness while she wrapped me in the chains. My blood sparked, my muscles regaining their full strength. The chains started to give and, with agonizing pain as the chains rebranded me once more, they finally gave with a chink!

“Yes!” I roared and flexed as I was able to stand up straight for the first time in, what felt like, millennia’s. Reaching up into the hard packed dirt, I clasped a tree root and dragged it down through the earth to create a hole. I clambered out, landing in a whole different world from the one I'd left. The brown earth was covered in hard black, blinking lights like stars trapped in clear material dangled off the ends of metal poles.

Lamp posts. My mind told me.

I smirked.

No matter how smart you`ve become, I could still slaughter every one of you in the blink of an eye.

 I batted away a metal object on wheels that rammed into my thigh. It made a loud honking noise like a goose as it swerved away from the black road. I grinned at the fire that erupted from the car.

I hope you're ready human race, because now I’m free, I’m never going back.
