Long ago, demons and hellcreatures invaded earth. Though they nearly wiped out the humans, humans did as always: adapted. Hundreds of years later, the offspring of humans and demons is the norm. Alessandra lives in this world, and is entirely human. Finally, too late to the battle, the angels are determined to get rid of the demons once and for all. Alessandra, though caught in the midst of the battle, is the only hope for the humane side of the cambions...if it even exists anymore...

14. Why?

All the while the cambions trudge through the sewers, tending to the wounded, Even carries me, even though he's already carrying a huge sword strapped to his back. 

I just stare blankly at the wall, tears always ready to spill over, though they never do.

Inside, though, my emotions are a raging storm of grief, anger, and frustration.

Two parts of me are at war: common sense, and the sense to do what is right.

It's suicidal to help the cambions any longer! Why do you even try?! yells common sense.

Because it's the right thing to do, whispers righteousness.

Is it worth it, if you get killed?! Is your life really worth those who despise you?

I don't know.

They beat you down and spit on you! 

But Mother and the others did the same thing to them.

So?!

So...they kind of have the right.

No, they don't! 

Yes, they do. Me not being so hateful to them is starting to break the cycle.

No, it's not!

Then why is Even being kind?

Because you're bait, a bargaining chip, the angels won't dare hurt you! 

I'll ask him, then, eventually.

Not if he just kills you first!

He wouldn't. 

Then what about the others? They hate you!

Yes, they do.

So?

So, what?

One hit you over the head! Made you bleed! Made you see double!

And an angel killed my family.

It was an accident!

So was the cambion that hit me over the head.

But you don't know that!

Then I don't know if what Zadkiel did could be called an 'accident'...And it was certainly no accident when Vasiariah pointed a sword at my throat.

...

He was going to kill Even.

He was going to kill them all.

...

He was going to kill you. Possibly.

They're cambions, growls common sense.

THEY'RE PEOPLE!!! roars righteousness.

THEY MIGHT BE, BUT WHY DO YOU STILL HELP THEM?

...

Because for most of my life, I was oppressed by my own family. I know what it feels like. No one should go through that.

...

Therefore, I will fight with them. Not against them.
