“So this is Sam Winchester.” Amanojaku frowned, looking the young human up and down, obviously not liking what he saw.
After a tense confrontation in the doorway, they’d gone inside, the three of them, and introductions had been made.
It was not necessary to say how much Amanojaku and Sam apparently disliked each other.
“And you’re the fucker who took her soul from her.” Sam sneered back.
Chloe sighed, looking from one to the other. “Sam, Manny doesn’t want anyone to get hurt.”
“No, I don’t want you
hurt.” Manny corrected. “Him I don’t care about.”
Sam’s eyes went fierce.
Chloe stepped in between them. “Stop it you two. Okay?” She turned to Sam. “Manny’s my master, and if he says its time for me to leave, then its time for me to leave.” The blonde sighed, turning towards Sam and walking up to him, cupping his face in her hands and lowering his gaze away from Manny and to her. “There’s nothing you can do about it, okay?”
His eyes were still fierce, but mixed with some desperation. “I can kill him.”
She heard Manny snort from behind her.
She ignored him, making sure to keep Sam’s and her gazes connected. “Sam, you’d just make my soul go to someone else. There’s no magic solution to this, okay? I chose of my own free will to give Manny my soul, and he kept his part of the bargain, so I don’t see why I should try and dishonor the pact I made with him. Plus, being a demon really isn't all that bad...hell...once I got used to it I found out that I rather liked it. So don't...don't try to fight this and be a hero, okay? I'm fine with how things are.”
She didn’t need to look to know that Manny was sneering at Sam.
“Why?” Sam asked.
And she knew the question.
Chloe sighed and looked away. “It has nothing to do with you, Sam. I made that choice, I gave him my soul, and if I had to relive that day over and over again, I would do the very same thing over and over again.”
The blonde let go of Sam and took a couple of steps back, distancing herself from him.
“But why?” Sam pressed, voice a hiss as he took a couple of furious steps forwards. “I just can’t understand this! What
could he possibly
give you that was worth your soul?!?”
“Don’t pry!” She hissed back, eyes flashing gold. “I’m what I am! And that’s that! It doesn’t matter how or why!”
“Yes it does!” Sam snapped, surging forwards and grabbing her by the top of her arms and giving her a desperate shake, as if trying to shake some sense into her. “Tell me why!”
His eyes darkened in his fury.
She wouldn’t answer him, lips shut tightly.
“Goddammit Chloe!” Sam shook her harder, voice odd. “Tell me why!”
A jolt of something went from Sam’s hands into her body, giving her a little shock.
Chloe’s eyes flew open wide.
Just like all the times before her power was completely gone in his presence, and now his touch was electric, and her instincts screamed like a prey in the presence of a mighty predator.
It was Amanojaku’s surprised word that caused them to look over at the demon.
He was standing tall, looking at Sam with wide eyes, shock shaping his every feature. “I—I didn’t know…”
“That…it makes sense now.” Manny shook his head, chuckling in mirthless amusement as he ran his hand over his head.
“What does?” Sam asked.
And then Amanojaku began to laugh.
Chloe frowned. “Manny?”
“He could have just told
me.” The Lord of the Evil of Men’s Hearts was talking to himself as he turned his back on them. “I---I wouldn’t have---he---that bastard
And yet he was laughing
“That sneaky bastard. I won’t let him win at poker anymore out of pity. He deserves to be cleaned out and humiliated in front of the boys.” Amanojaku declared with conviction as he turned towards the young adults again, eyeing Sam as if seeing him for the first time. “Come here boy, I need to get a good look at you.”
Chloe and Sam exchanged looks before Sam let go of the blonde and stepped up warily towards the demon lord.
“Come come now, I’m not going to bite you.” Manny snorted, motioning him closer as he brought a hand to his chin and gazed at the boy thoughtfully. “Well, you’re a little on the gangly side, but you’ll grow into it, I’m sure of it.”
“What are you talking about?” Sam asked, frowning.
Chloe stepped forwards to stand by his side. “Manny?”
Amanojaku looked from Sam to Chloe and back, studying them both, before sighing. “I guess the time has come, hasn’t it my dear?”
“Time for what?” Chloe asked, worried.
He sighed. “I had hoped that I could have had you a little longer to myself.” The demon reached forward and caressed her hair, trailing his fingers down to her jaw and looking at her. “We were together for such a short time. I---had hoped that we’d have some centuries together before we had to say goodbye.”
“Goodbye?” Chloe was scared. She was terrified. “Manny, you’re the only friend I have in this world! You can’t leave me!”
Sam looked at her oddly, torn.
Amanojaku ‘tut’ed her, arms wide, and held her when she flew into them. “Don’t be scared my girl, its not a goodbye forever. I’ll still be around, but things will be different from now on.”
“Why?” Chloe asked.
“Are you going to give her back her soul?” Sam’s voice was deeper.
“My dear boy. She never lost it.” Amanojaku surprised them quiet. “I just…needed it…until the transformation began.”
“What?” Chloe looked up at him in confusion. “I don’t understand…”
“What transformation?” Sam picked up on that word. “Her into a succubus?”
“No. Her being a succubus was just a temporary middle ground until the process was complete.” Manny confused them even more. “She needed to accept her true nature, and once she did, her soul would be given back to her.”
“My true nature?” Chloe stepped back.
Amanojaku smiled down at Chloe. “Why do you think I accepted the soul of Lois Lane when her sister offered it to me? I knew that Lois Lane wouldn’t be something I could find useful, and yet I took it because I knew it would bring me to you
Chloe’s eyes widened. “What?”
Sam’s eyes widened as well, as suddenly the answers of the puzzle were being given to him.
“I was waiting for you when you summoned me that night.” Manny replied. “I was waiting for you to finish trying to convince me to let go of her soul, to realize how desperate the situation was, and know that the only way to free your cousin’s soul…”
“…was to offer your own.” Sam finished, voice a horrified whisper.
Chloe sent him a worried look before turning to Manny. “Why? Why would you go to all of that trouble just to have my soul…if you were going to have to give it back? I—I don’t understand Manny! How was my being a succubus a middle ground? What process? Am I human again? Am I a succubus still? Am I something else? What?”
“You’re what you always were.” He reached forwards and cupped her cheek. “But now you’re awakening to it, to your true nature, and I can now leave you to grow up.”
“I don’t…” Chloe whispered, eyes pleading with him to explain.
“Why do you think you were able to perform the summoning ritual so easily? Why do you think you were able to resist my power over the desires in your heart?” Manny asked, caressing the hollow of her cheek with his thumb. “Why do you think that even as a human you nearly entranced me to do as you wanted?”
“I don’t know.” She replied. “I never knew why…”
“Think of it, Chloe.” He spoke softly. “Why were you able to go through the transformation painlessly? Why were you able to enthrall your clients and make them believe you’d slept with them when you hadn’t? And yet feed from them? No other succubus or incubus can do that.”
Chloe’s eyes were large. “But you told me that all---!”
“I lied. They all did. Though they didn’t know why I told them to lie.” Manny replied without repentance. “Why do you think you have yellow eyes when the other succubae have black? Why do you think you have such power---or a seat next to mine?”
Chloe’s lips parted.
“She’s your daughter
.” Sam spoke in shock the words that wouldn’t leave her lips.
Amanojaku nodded. “Gabriel Sullivan wanted Moira Lane, and yet she wouldn’t have him. I told him I’d give him the deepest desire of his heart, but I wanted a night with his intended, while under a glamour to look like him.”
“Why?” Chloe whispered in shock, looking up at her boss---at her father.
“There is an exceedingly rare dna composition that only a few humans have. And those humans are the only ones with whom our dna will mix and give us true children. True hybrids. Half human, half demon, with their humanity as dominant…unless they choose to accept their demonhood and its dominance.”
Chloe began to shake.
“Demons love, Chloe. And I loved you from the moment you were conceived in your mother’s womb.” He placed her hand over Chloe’s stomach as if in remembrance. “And then, when you were mature in human years, I made plans to have you join me, as my heiress---for eternity is too long to spend alone.”
Her whole body was trembling, her mind in shock, unable to believe all that she was taking in.
It was a surprise to no one when her eyes rolled in the back of her head and she collapsed.
“She’ll be fine, it was just the shock of the news, with the added shock of her soul returning to her body. They’ve been separated for a long time, and now they need to get reacquainted with each other and trying to assimilate the changes in each.”
Sam looked up from where Chloe was sleeping on her bed, looking so small and pale and tired, to Amanojaku. “What happened to her soul?”
“It was…modified.” Amanojaku replied. “Contrary to belief, true demons, ancient demons, have souls. It’s the black-eyed minions who don’t have anymore. Now, my daughter will live for eternity.” He turned to Sam. “I’m impressed, actually. You must have read between the lines, must have realized what I didn’t say. Must know what this means for you.”
Sam’s gaze went dark. “I know what you’re insinuating…”
“Not insinuating.” Amanojaku shook his head. “Your father is Azazel, one of the most powerful of demons, closest to our lord and master, Lucifer himself.”
Sam flinched. “Lies!”
“How do you explain the demon in you? Its desire to Alpha my daughter?” Amanojaku asked curiously. “I saw you with her. She’s submitting to you, her demon is submitting to yours, even when yours isn’t fully activated yet. A demon bride will only submit to her demon groom. The fact that you could get her to recognize this, even if subconsciously, only speaks of the power your demon holds.”
Sam stood rapidly, shaking his head. “I’m not a demon!”
“Not yet, only a hybrid.” Amanojaku nodded. “Just like she was before she chose to become one of us…and then truly accepted herself and her demonhood.”
Sam’s gaze went to Chloe.
“And just like her demonhood recognizes yours as her Alpha, yours recognizes her as your Beta.” Amanojaku smirked. “You will, of your own free will, choose to complete the transformation in yourself. Maybe not now. Maybe not next year. But you will
“Never.” Sam hissed.
Amanojaku smirked darker. “You can deny it all you want, boy, but remember with whom you speak. I am the Lord of the Evil of Man’s Heart, and I can see deep into yours and see your truest desire…” his gaze went to Chloe. “When the time comes, you will choose perdition by her side.”
And with that, he disappeared.
Sam collapsed on the side of the bed with a deep intake of breath, bringing his hands to his face, arms shaking.
The demon had been lying.
He had to be! It has to be…
