WRITE A POST IN RESPONSE TO TODAY’S ONE – WORD PROMPT.
The prophecy reads that she would be the one! The one that would bring about the end of the world, but how could she be Dimitri thought. She was just under 2 years old and the most beautiful little girl he had ever seen. She bore the mark, the mark of the sultry temptress that would bring about the end of the world. He had been searching for a millennia for the girl and now that he had finally found her he didn’t know if he could go through with his plan to kill her.
Abandoned at an orphanage right around 6 months old. He felt bad for the little ragamuffin that didn’t even know who her parents were. She was cute as a button and he felt sorry for her! Maybe he could raise her! Raise her and change her into one of the good guys! Steer her in his direction! He reached down and picked her up out of the bed! She wouldn’t be missed in an orphanage this size! He tucked her away into the inside of his coat and dematerialized back to his home halfway across the world!
As he tucked her into his bed he just sat there staring at her utter beauty! She was a looker and he couldn’t help but be drawn to her! Maybe he was an idiot! Maybe he should have just broken her neck and be done with it! Yet, for the first time in over 500 years he felt a rightness in the moment he felt a peace wash over him that he hadn’t felt in forever. His fatherly instincts were coming to the forefront that screamed, “Protect her at all costs!”
Maybe, the prophecy was wrong! Maybe she could be turned good and end up saving the world! Or maybe he was just and old codger now, with hopeful dreams and lying to I himself! He guessed he ould just have to wait and see! H knew one thing for sure when the time came and she was the cause of all the destruction he would do what needed to be done… But for now, he reached down to straighten a lock of her hair from her tiny face. As he raised up and turned to walk away He whispred, “Goodnight my little Angel” As he shut the door behind him. He didn’t see the little “Angel” open her now glowing emerald eyes as a malicious smile came over her face.
The prophecy would take place and this was only the beginning…
