    The bloody mess from her actions finally clicked into motion, much to her satisfaction. Her aim was not to cause everlasting pain – and she quietly cursed her humanity for its behaviour, with such instinctive moments in the heat of violence – but after the vicious entrance (or rather, exit) of her companion from the demon's digestive tomb, it seemed appropriate to finish it quickly... even if the attack was somewhat extreme. The explosion coated the ground and Lilith in blood and remains of the creature, splattering with a sickening squelch.

    She turned away at this to avoid her eyes or mouth catching anything, but as she looked back, her face subtly showed slight surprise. Her companion's horrific, distorted burns slowly seemed to heal up ever so easily.

    Ah, yes, she thought, the devil's blood running through his veins... how could one forget?

    Her second surprise was his blessing to the dead. The words were chilling, abnormal to her ears... and she prayed that she would get used to it. He looked at her inquisitively, but she returned a stare that seemed to bear no obvious answer.

    Slowly, she strode over to the remains, carefully picking up Mephisto. Quietly, she gently patted it, muttering to it, “Forgive me.”

    She looked at the half-Devil, smiling slightly, pulling off her jacket, throwing it to him, “Use it for now. To keep warm if anything. Now we may hurry.” She placed away her gun, sliding Mephisto to her back once more and placed her hands in her pockets, smiling with some optimism, as if the battle had not even occurred, “Lead the way.”

    Gabriel meant no disrespect or rudeness when he turned down her offered jacket with a shake of his head and said, "keep it, you need it more than I for I do not get cold easily, nor do I get sick," though he would understand if his refusal angered her, not that he would really care because he had simply spoken the truth. If she were to touch him at that moment, despite the chill night and rain, she would feel the warmth practically radiating off of him.

    Gabriel turned to look at the giant building they were currently heading for and he felt something stir within him, again the power of the white stone compelled him to transform into a devil but he refused it. He glanced at Lilith out of the corner of his eyes, she knew he was a devil and she was used to these sort of things, but that still didn't mean she would be completely ready for his devil form, for Juliana's sake he refused to startle another with his powers. There was something else he felt from the tower, he felt a very powerful devil there, perhaps the one responsible for whatever had happened, if such a thing was the result of one devil. Gabriel was skeptical, but he was fairly good at noticing other devils and he felt something ill about the whole situation.

    He nodded to Lilith and began down the street with a smooth stride, his muscled back swaying slightly and suggesting at his skilled balance. He kept his sword balanced on his shoulder with his right hand. The rain continued to pour down in great waves that chilled to the bone and cut straight through the thickest coat. Thunder shook the city soon after every blinding fork of lightning. A neon sign on the outside of a nearby bar flickered with a low electronic buzz, Devil's Nest was written in a demonic cursive font in bright red against the brick building.

    Lilith took the coat back, her eyebrows creasing a moment as she shrugged it back onto her shoulders. As she did so, she felt something at her collar … and it was warm. She stared at the half-devil's hands, studying them a moment. It was held and given back by him, even for the brevity of a second...

    Of course. Where else could it have come from but from the flesh of such a person as he?

    She raised her eyebrows at the half-devil and gave a hearty shrug, as if to say, 'Oh well.' The words he spoke made her once again, reminded her of the humanity she had – and slightly, it had made her wince.

    There were times when she forgot what she was – how fragile the human body could be. It was nothing like those in Lower Medio, who seemed to not care about injuries if they were strong enough. Why then, did they not live above? Did the tales of Heaven and Hell delve even deeper?

    The thought, no matter how sarcastic, almost made her chuckle. She shifted the jacket tighter around her and followed, studying the half-devil every so often, not flinching when he glanced back at her. It almost seemed as if he was unsure of something, considering something, but Lilith could not imagine what – but somewhere, deep in her conscience, something told her to be prepared.

    What she did flinch at however, was the wind as it blew chillingly around them. She folded her arms, keeping them close to her until they arrived at a bar, typically dark and cranky, as were most things in this darker parallel of Medio.

    “The Devil's Nest,” she said, brushing her fringe back to look at the name, “what a name to choose...” she muttered quietly.

    Rem was quick to navigate the back allies of a group of tall buildings. These dark lower Medio streets were familiar to him as he traveled them for a good part of his life. He was clutching both his guns tightly. He had shot a number of bullets at a couple of demons but it seemed to have no affect.

    Rem knew something was not right. These were higher class demons but yet they acted as if they were mindless killing machines with no senses at all. Rem had barely escaped the attacks of these mindless monsters. Taken them head on was not an option. He knew he had to navigate his way to the tower where the light came from. Maybe there he would find more answers.

    If memory served him right the next turn would put him just across the street from the tower. Eagerly wondering what was up he turned the corner and was almost in the street when he saw the demons attacking what Rem guessed by the view he had was a devil. Rem quickly shielded himself the best he could from view hoping neither the demons nor the devil man head seen him yet. Then the devil filled the ground with electrical currents and the demons fell. This devil had lots of power and Rem kept a firm grasp on both of his guns waiting to see what would happen next.

    "The tower..." Gabriel spoke softly as he glanced up at its enormous height and then glanced around to see if anymore demons had come out around it. Gabriel wasn't sure if he despised the tower or praised it. Though Gabriel was labeled a demon hunter he detested killing, though it still had to be done, he had accepted that, and as long as he could pray for those he killed he would have to be alright with it. But the tower changed demons into devils, if they could pass the tests within. The reason Gabriel couldn't decide if he should hate it or like it was because he rarely ever killed devils, because devils were smarter, and had more important agendas (usually) than mindlessly killing people for sport, and the tower produced devils, or reduced the number of demons. It reduced the amount of killing he had to do. But it also gave more power to demons and every once in a while he had to kill an evil, power hunger devil. Not to mention the tower was a ghastly place that spoke of death in its very existence.

    Before he thought any longer he quickly turned away from it and checked again for enemy demons. He looked at Lilith, "Be careful, there's something powerful here," he said seriously. Whatever had happened originated here, he was sure of it, but why was he so sure of it? He just couldn't figure out, nor could he figure out why he knew part of some prophecy he had never heard of. This was turning out to be one hell of a night.

    Lilith seemed surprisingly uninterested in the tower, but was still looking around at Lower Medio cautiously. It was only when she was spoken to, that she looked at the tower – and in those ancient eyes, they had become deeply saddened.

    Keeping her hands in her pockets and stance relaxed, she slowly nodded with a short smile, voice almost inaudible, “Yes… but let’s see which one is the corrupted of the two.” She didn’t look at the half-Devil as she spoke, but once more, her words were double-sided and unclear. She could have meant anything – perhaps knowing what was there, but this was impossible, even for this mysterious young woman.

    She knew nothing of the tower. But her gut feeling told her enough. She would have to keep thinking about this… just as she had done when she left her home to follow this stranger. But now, something else bothered her.

    There was a familiar presence here – and it didn’t seem inhuman. In fact, the polar opposite. The thought made her smile slightly; it meant that they were not alone… but who in the world was it? Lilith knew few humans and fewer devils.

    Her sage smile emerged again in reassurance and she took a step forward, her fingers gently touching Lucifer’s trigger, unmoving.

    Looking at the half-Devil, she said calmly, “Shall we begin this dance, Sir?” a hand gestured towards the entrance.

    Sanskrit turned as soon as all eight demons fell around him in a single, lethal electrical surge, brunt to a crisp, their skin smoldering, bubbling, and stinking of acid. They were all strong demons, the highest class, and strengthened even more by the transformation, but under the undiluted power of the devil they attacked, they were as kids attacking a missile base; he drove the electricity through their mouths, finding any small openings on their skin and exploded each of their hearts.

    Sanskrit spied the half-breed from before unchanged, and a human girl… who also looked to be unchanged…

    He called out to them, rushing up. “Do either of you know what caused this?” His voice was frantic as if he just happened upon the scene himself. “I was giving the Test to some of these demons when they suddenly changed form and attacked me—” his head glanced behind him to where his slain victims lay, a smile of pure ecstasy curled on the ends of his lips “—they were my best students.” Sanskrit managed a sob.

    Gabriel looked around, ignoring the frantic devil before him for the moment as he searched for the source of the incredible power. Then he realized it was the devil before him. His emotionless eyes settled on the devil's face as he spoke simply, "No," in response to the first part, he remained silent as the devil explained his situation, something was off with him. When he glanced away, Gabriel couldn't see his expression, but it seemed odd still, Gabriel was unsure about this devil. "Riposi in pace," he said as he crossed his heart, touched his forehead, and brought his hand down. He prayed that the dead demons would find peace in death.

    He looked around cautiously and then spoke, "We shouldn't remain here any longer," before turning away from the building. He would need to think, he would need to know what was going on. If something bad was about to happen to this city he would stop it, even if it cost him his life. But he didn't even know where to begin, except for the prophecy he had spoken earlier. Once they found a safe place to hide, he would go over it again.

    Lilith's eyes darted to the Devil, peering at him closely. Though he appeared frightened, Lilith's lips seemed to curl into a small smile, contrasting to how her insides felt as if they had contracted into her stomach. Her ancient gaze unmoving, she tilted her head at the Devil curiously as he turned to look at his supposed students.

    Slowly, her hands went to her trouser pockets, gripping her notebook tightly as she backed towards her companion, following him as he turned from the tower, but Lilith looked behind her several times. Though her face betrayed no concern, inside, she felt her blood boil. She hated that place...

    But … why?

    She shook her head, walking somewhat closer to the half-Devil, trying to keep her footsteps quiet. Her gaze was now directed to the ground, deep in thought.

    “Where to now?” she asked quietly. And what of that... person?

    “Curiosity is often the better part of life,” said Sanskrit, his voice held a certain degree of disappointment in it as both the new half-breed and human turned away from the pressing danger. He paused, waiting, and then spoke again. “You come all the way here, and now you turn away, fleeing with your tail between your legs? I would expect no less than this human filth, but someone with devil blood in him… you existence is an insult if you run away now.”

    With that said Sanskrit turned away from the duo and entered the Devil’s Outlook intent on ending his failed experiment. His thoughts dwelled on what went wrong—why weren’t the demons listening to his every command? Why is that human girl still a human and not under his control? Sanskrit could feel no connection between himself and the human as he knew he should have felt, at least, a life link from his mind to hers yet… there was nothing.

    Outside the effects from the experiment were still on full swing; meteor fireballs of pure demonic energy were still raining down on all of Medio with only a few patches here and there free from its wrath, the quakes, though severely lessened, rumbled every few minutes causing the buildings to shake and have their windows hail shattered glass on the street below.

    Sanskrit reached the bottom of the stairs leading upward without hindrance. For some reason or another, the powered demons, or lesser devils as Sanskrit would like to call them, were unable to enter the Devil’s Outlook—perhaps it was the same for the half-breed and the girl? He couldn’t feel their presence behind him, but that could be their own cowardice keeping them at bay.

    The tower suddenly shook violently as a fireball crashed into its side. Bracing himself, the devil proceeded upward.

    When he heard the devil behind speak Gabriel stopped but did not turn around. After he knew that the devil had entered the building Gabriel turned around and stared at the closed doors. He glanced up at the tower and the raining energy. It made sense. Sure that his companion had no clue what he understood, nor what Sanskrit was, Gabriel looked around again and selected a run down building. He walked up to the door and broke the glass with a punch, sticking his arm through and opening the door. As he walked inside he turned to Lilith and said, "Come," holding the door open for her so he could shut it as soon as she was inside.

    Once she was inside he would ask for the notebook so that he could read the prophecy again. He cursed whatever fate it was that decided he would only get a part of the prophecy to begin with and that he would not receive any further information. That devil, there was something about him that just did not sit right with Gabriel. He had had dealings with evil before, devils were not necessarily evil, but they were rarely nice. This one had appeared innocent up till the point when he responded to Gabriel's decision to leave. Looking back after that comment his story did not truely check out. It seemed odd that a teacher could easily kill his eight best students, especially if they had all been strengthened by whatever magics were at work here.

    When the door was shut and they were both inside Gabriel would say to Lilith, "I need the prophecy again. And that devil, there is something off about him, he might know something about this."

    The cat was killed from curiosity... then he tore the attackers to pieces when cornered.

    Lilith hurried indoors, keeping close to the Half-Devil until entering into the ruined house, sniffing what seemed like sulphur or damp that hung in the air with age.

    She pried the notebook from her own clutches, holding it out to the half-Devil airily. More notes had been scribbled in shorthand around the prophecy as Lilith observed the area more and more. Some words seemed almost cryptic... apart from two words in small, elegant writing : “Corpse blood.”

    Her ancient eyes were locked firmly on him. He clearly knew something... but what? She wondered if this had something to do with the Devil at the tower – and the thought of him seemed chilling... and oddly enough, it seemed insulting.

    She spoke her mind.

    “It's possible … that he would have been able to harm those Demons himself, isn't it? Or was it more than just a group of students?”

    Again, the foolish, but interrogative question, her sagely eyes unmoving as her lips were curved into a small, characteristically cunning smile.

    Gabriel took it from her, gently touching her hand on accident, but not paying attention. He glanced at her after seeing the notes scribbled around the prophecy and his mind logged, but did not attend to the fact that she had an attractive smile. He read and reread the prophecy several times, his lips moving along as he sounded the words, hoping to understand them better. The one section of notes she had written that was actually readable caught his attention, Corpse Blood, it was odd that she would write such a thing as it had nothing to do with the prophecy. The words invoked an odd feeling within Gabriel's mind that quickly swelled to an intense throbbing that made it feel like his brain was expanding and compacting severely within his skull and was ready to explode outwards. He dropped the notebook and clutched at his head, doubling over and letting out a long, low, "grahhh."

    Then he suddenly stopped and stood up straight slowly, his face was even more blank than normal, and he spoke in a cold, monotonous voice.

    “Two pieces,
    One of light,
    One of dark,
    Harmless apart,
    Together, endless night.

    Ancient evil and good,
    an endless battle intervened,
    Sealed in stone,
    Must never touch,
    Or battle will resume,
    and the world will be consumed.

    The Alter of the Damned,
    A door to the end of the world,
    One of light, one of dark,
    Endless night, they are the key,
    Within your heart, you must see,
    Devil blood, a savior it must be.

    No true savior exists,
    Save the world,
    Release the good,
    Release the evil,
    By devil's blood,
    The battle will resume."

    Gabriel's eye lids fluttered and he began to fall backwards, landing in a chair that was behind him. Before he fell out of the chair he caught himself on the wall. Breathing heavy he looked up at Lilith and asked, "What did I say this time?"

    Lilith's eyes briefly glanced up to meet his, but she said nothing. But she wondered what he was thinking – and she seemed to exhale a small amount of air, seemingly amused. But this slowly ebbed for her face to show slight surprise...

    What had he seen to emit such a growl? Lilith raised a hand to place it on his shoulder, but quickly retracted it. That bizarre, ill look had taken form on the Half-Devil's face – and that was Lilith's cue to snatch up the notebook, scribbling down what she could on the next page. She was sure to right every single word, from beginning to end, knowing full well that some words and phrases were repeated … but one could never be too careful.

    The prophecy was spoken in such a haunting, unnatural tone. Chilling, dark and … strange. Stranger still, Lilith couldn't help but wonder why this person was the one to speak it out... as possessed by the Devil.

    If you believed in that sort of thing.

    Lilith was intrigued.

    Altar of Damned... could that be a place... or was it a metaphor? An an eternal night as a key? Chosen by a “light” and “dark” door? And releasing both good and evil? Was that perhaps...

    Lilith for once, frowned in thought as she wrote hurriedly, careful to write anything back in if she was mistaken.

    She sat on the table casually afterwards. Judging by the look on the Half-Devil's face, which was one of exhaustion, she read the prophecy aloud, but kept her voice barely audible for him to hear. Even walls could have ears. After doing so, she looked at him, her head tilted to one side, her eyes showing some great concern for the strange man.

    “Are you... all right?”

    Sanskrit thrust open the doors to the roof and emerged from the tower. What he saw before him nearly took him off guard completely.

    The concrete roof was ashen, deep cracks, like rivers, ran everywhere from the center of the roof. The Outlook was visibly crumbling as chiseled chunks were flung from the top, crashing and breaking whatever it landed upon. From the center a torrent of white and black light thrashed burning afterimage after afterimage in the devil's eyes; the two lights fought viciously over dominance, they entangled each other like long, sinewy vines. The point where both light touched was most remarkable.

    There in the center of the whirlwind was the Black Orb!

    "But I thought it was thrown off in the explosion!" shouted Sanskrit, but his voice was drowned by the cackling energy and high velocity gale force winds.

    The devil threw his body forward with all the might he could muster but he only went a foot or two forward. Instead of fighting his way to the center his hand went to the spear on his back and, removing the leather cast, pierced the cemented roof, inching forward with a little more ease.

    Energy lashed at Sanskrit cutting his clothes and skin like a hot knife through butter. Blood spilled from his chest and arms with an irregular consistency.

    The two lights boomed, crashing together. A shockwave pulsated outward that sent Sanskrit flying back a ways. The energy strengthened. His energy…

    Another clash and the two energies exploded and pierced the pandemonium around Lower Medio with a hurricane of sounds, none of them good.

    It took a full eight minutes to reach the pedestal.

    Sanskrit evaded the two lights now that he was near; or rather the two lights continued to fight furiously and ignored his presence… if at all they could feel him. Around the Black Orb the torrent of wind was unnervingly powerful, if Sanskrit was not as powerful as he was he feared that he might have been blown off long before; he could feel the wind within his very heart…

    His hand lunged for the Black Orb!

    Within seconds the chaos subsided as their energy source diminished, fading back into Sanskrit. The two lights lingered in the air fighting still, but their movements grew sluggish, and eventually they too vanished. All around Medio demons were slowly reverting back to their normal selves… humans too. Like a nightmare the dream was over…

    But the damage caused remained.

    Rem had been careful to keep himself hidden but also be aware of his surroundings. He watched as the Devil man soon move forward to meet two other people and Rem immediately noticed the girl. The one she had met earlier in the house, Gears he believed was the name she gave him. Rem smiled at the thought of meeting such an interesting girl again so soon. The man she was with Rem did not recognize. Rem studied him for a second knowing their was something special about him.

    He saw the three converse for a short time until the The man and Gears turned. The group soon parted as Rem's curiosity was running high. He was not even slightly worried about any dangers and wanted to follow the devil man but before he did Rem got this feeling that overpowered his curiosity. A feeling like it was a bad idea to follow the devil man at this moment.

    Instead he turned is attention back to the other two. They were entering a building and he saw the man punch his way through a window to make entry which Rem studied carefully. As soon as the doors were shut he made his way in that direction. He had no reason to keep himself hidden from the two. The girl known as Gears Rem felt he did not have to worry about. Not that he trusted her Rem trusted almost no one, but he felt no need to be alarmed. Even though he knew nothing about the man he would enter anyway.

    As he got to the door he heard a man's voice stating a chant that brought this odd feeling inside himself. It almost seemed familiar or something like that for some odd reason but Rem could not figure out why. Rem went to open the door but the sounds around him increased and something nearby caused him to lose his balance and fall backwards.

    Rem took a minute or to before he rose to his feet again. He had been clumsy and to focused what was in front of him that he was lucky he was not attacked. He looked around and noticed that the tension in the area seemed to all of a sudden return to its' normal state. "interesting" he though to himself as he returned to his feet. Before he entered the door he put away his weapon ready to redraw them if needed, but he did not want to send the wrong message as he may surprise the two inside the door. Slowly he pushed the door open and entered.

    Lucifer was pointing at the door in an instant – Lilith gave no thought to who it could have been on the other side, not even looking until Rem had passed into the room... or rather it seemed, cautiously stride in. Her eyes quickly glanced over, her body and aim unmoving for a fraction of a second before she slowly relaxed, placing her gun carefully into the leather holster.

    She blinked slightly, tilting her head aside and took a deep breath, slowly saying, “So... we bloodlessly cross again, Remington,” she smirked slightly, her old eyes betraying some youthful amusement, but her voice again, was tainted with subtle sadness. To the half-Devil, she said, “You have nothing to fear of this human, I believe.”

    When he was asked if he was okay Gabriel simply nodded and when he was told not to fear the human who had just opened the door to the house he had broken into Gabriel simply looked up and the man and then back to the notebook he held. When he spoke, it was in a quiet, calm voice, "I fear no human, it is the devils that bother me." His eyes darted over the lines of the prophecy several times before he looked up again. "It makes sense," he said after a long time and took out the white stone from his pocket again, "perhaps this is why I am receiving these prophecies, it belonged to my father. 'One of light, one of dark,' it says, it is talking about this, and another one. It said the Alter of the Damned is the door to the end of the world, and the stones are the key. Endless night is the end of the world. 'Within your heart, you must see, devil's blood, a savior it must be,' is it talking about stopping the end of the world? Whose blood?" He looked around again. He was not directly seeking answers from Lilith or the stranger, in fact if either one spoke to him he might act surprised by their presence, so used to working alone was he.

    Lilith said nothing for a moment, but briefly, her eyes narrowed as the Half-Devil spoke. He was confused, but Lilith couldn’t help but wonder – if the prophecy belonged to the father, why was this prophecy not exacted to him, but his half-breed son?

    Half-breed...

    Of course.

    Lilith couldn’t help but give a small chuckle, shaking her head. Maybe it was just that direct and blunt. She needed no reason to laugh. A sheer weight upon delicate shoulders was no fun feat – maybe she was wrong to, but it seemed correct to.

    “Ask yourself. None knows a mother better than a child,” Lilith said – and restrained her need to laugh again at her naivety. What idiocy! What would she know of motherhood, let alone the feel of a parent’s flesh? To replace her amusement, her lips held a simple smile, her deep eyes tracing the face of the quiet Half-Devil for a sense of emotion.

    Emotions were not something Gabriel was good at expressing, a lifetime of losing those he loved and being alone had steeled him against showing emotions. Even now, when Lilith mentioned his mother, Gabriel showed barely any emotion, though if Lilith's eyes were truely good, she would be able to catch a glimpse of the sorrow that was written into the half-devil's soul. "My father is dead, killed by his fell devils for betraying them, or at least that's how they saw it when he took a human lover. My mother is dead, killed by devils for insulting them by spawning a half-breed. If the prophecy was meant for either of them, then it must come to me for they are dead."

    He looked out the window near him cautiously then stood up and headed for a door towards the back of the room. "It is very late, but it seems the majority of the problems are over for now, we should get some rest while we can, it all starts again tomorrow." He opened the door and went into the hallway it was connected to, after inspecting it he found only two bedrooms, luckily one room had two beds in it. Normally he would take the single room, but he thought it would be better to leave it for Lilith instead of forcing her to sleep in the same room with a stranger. He said nothing to either of them about however, and simply went into the room with the two beds, leaving both doors open.
