Daylight

The year is 2021, and a third World War is in full swing. A group of teenagers have been able to live in the country and escape most of the crazy war lifestyle. They reside in a large mansion owned by the King and Queen of the Republic of England. There's a school being run, and a lot of kids running around. There will be a turn in the war soon. It's going to be a revolt from the creatures most people don't even believe in.

          Two weeks have passed since the four humans arrived at the creature camp. Training has been going fantastic, with everyone being trained improving quite quickly. Lucas has been working had to perfect his plan, and he speculates a few more weeks before he’ll actually be able to put it into action.

          As of the moment, it is late into the night, but many creatures are still out and about. Paige, Daniel, and Bella are asleep in their tents while Lucas is hanging out with some vampires. Riley is out taking a walk near the fence as she couldn’t sleep.

          “I feel so useless here,” Riley sighs and kicks a rock out of her way. “All I do is stand back and watch. And talk with Lucas when I can. I suck,” she grumbles and looks up to the star dotted sky.

          “I could help with your problem,” a deep voice sounds from behind Riley.

          A chill runs down her spine and she seems frozen to her spot. “Who is there?”

          “Is it not whom?” the man chuckles.

          “Trying to calm my nerves,” Riley lets a giggle pass her lips. “How can you help?” She slowly turns around to face the man who wants to help her.

          The man is wearing a black suit with a red tie. His hair is nicely styled and looks to be dark brown in the moonlight. The color of his eyes are unsettlingly red. “Ah, so much prettier when I can see your face,” he smirks.

          “Oh,” her face slowly reddens. “Wait, you still haven’t told me who you are.”

          “Ah yes,” he takes a step towards the girl. “I am Lucifer, but don’t be afraid of me. I promise I won’t hurt you, I just want to help.”

          “But at a price, I know how you play,” Riley grins.

          “I’m not one for handouts, sorry,” he shrugs. “But I can help you.”

          “In exchange for my soul, right?”

          “Smart and pretty, no wonder Lucas picked you.”

          “You know Lucas?”

          “Of course, everyone knows him.”

          Riley looks over at camp, “Not surprising.”

          “Well, I love this small talk, but I don’t have a lot of time. Do you want my help or not?”

          Riley looks back at Lucifer. “What will you do?”

          “I’ll take your soul, turn you immortal, and make you a witch.”

          “A witch? That sounds quite cool. And helpful,” she smiles for a quick second before her face drops. “Wait, what about my skill?”

          “Oh, I won’t take that from you. I am not that evil, babe.”

          “It sounds so good, but I don’t know. Being immortal sounds scary and hard.”

          “It’s not. It is fun and exciting knowing you can do anything. You’ll love it.”

          “I could finally be with Lucas.”

          “You could. I know he would be thrilled about that.”

          “You know what, let’s do it. I’m tired of standing by and being useless. I want to be helpful. Lucifer, I give you my soul to make me an immortal witch.”

          “Excellent,” Lucifer smiles devilishly and rubs his hands together. “I promise you will thank me later.”

          The next morning, Riley feels powerful and energized. Her heart is still beating, and she can’t feel any real change. Other than being able to sense other beings, that skill seems to have been greatly improved.

          “Hey Riley,” Lucas sits down next to the girl on the ground. “Can I have a bite of your toast?”

          “Sure,” she smiles and hands the vampire one of her two pieces of toast. “You chefs are amazing, by the way. This is the best omelet I have ever eaten. Plus, homemade orange juice is so good.”

          “That’s good. I’ll be sure to let them know.”

          The two eat in silence and take in the scenery. Birds chirping, bees buzzing, and the sun shining.

          “Hey, Riley,” Lucas moves into the shade. “Where were you last night?”

          “What do you mean?” Riley bites the inside of her cheek.

          “I went to your tent last night to check on you. You’ve seemed a bit out of it. So, like the best friend I am, I wanted to cheer you up.”

          “Aw, that is very sweet of you. I’m fine though.”

          “That’s good. Still, you didn’t tell me where you were.”

          “Oh, yeah. I was just out walking,” she shrugs. “Near the fence, away from all the people. I needed some time to clear my head and have some fresh air. It really helped, since I feel much better this morning.”

          “That makes me happy,” Lucas grabs Riley’s hand. “I know my time with you is going to end way into the future, but one of my goals is to make sure you are always happy.”

          “Yeah, a long time,” Riley looks up at the cloud dotted blue sky. She can’t help feeling guilty of the fact that their time will never come to an end. How can she tell Lucas she let Lucifer turn her into a witch?

          “You didn’t run into anyone on your walk, did you?” Lucas asks out of the blue.

          “What?” Riley is a bit shocked.

          “Sorry, sudden change of subject. But, did you see anyone on your walk last night?”

          “Oh, no. Not a single soul. I had alone time for the entirety of the walk. No one hurt me.”

          “Good,” he gives her hand a small squeeze. “Because then I’d have to hurt them.”

          Riley laughs, “That is why you are my best friend.”

          “How about be hang out all day? Do you like the sound of that?”

          “I love it. Sounds like a perfect way to spend this day.”
