From the large entrance of a massive mountain castle walked an attractive demon. This one stood out from the hideous demons around him. Apart from the small horns that protruded from his forehead and his dark shell-like chest and legs. His face appeared as a young man in his thirties, and he had muscular arms with smooth human like skin. As he walked from the base of the castle, lesser demons obediently cleared the way.
“Going out again Baal?” came a smug female voice that stopped him in his tracks.
Baal turned to see another human like demon standing behind him with her arms crossed in disapproval. She was a bit shorter and had the face of an innocent young woman with short black hair. However her horns protruded from the top of her head and were shaped like horns of a beetle. Her chest was black armor that also resembled a bug, her thighs shoulder and upper arm were soft human skin and the rest of her body was a hard bug-like shell.
“Where I’m going is none of your concern,
Vriesea.” Baal answered as he turned back and continued to walk away.
Baal had taken a few more steps before he was stopped again this time by Vriesea making a subtle threat. “I guess with lord Cassius away you fill no obligation to be secretive about your disappearances anymore. Well he wasn’t the only one who’s been suspicious of your actions lately.”
Baal slowly turned his head back and gave her a wrathful stare as if he wanted nothing more then to rip her head off that very moment. “And what do you mean by that?” he asked as he clinched his blood red eyes and tried to contain his rage.
Vriesea returned a cocky smirk then turned and walked back toward the castle while replying. “I’d watch that temper if I were you. Wouldn’t want to give yourself away, now would you.”
Baal let out an angry growl then finally walked away from the castle. He walked past the dark city until he reached a small cluster of mountains that sat next to the shoreline of a large burning lake. This area was hid away from the city and the dark mountain castle. Within the cluster of rocks was a small cave, it’s opening faced the burning lake with no view of the large mountain castle.
