Hello, this is indeed still part of my mini series collection. Please follow my journey! If you haven't read the beginning yet, make sure to click below and check this after since this is part 3!
A new place, he was right- Perseus took Alderam to new places. It wasn't hell, but it wasn't something anyone would call home. Since Perseus pushed Alderam, they once again entered another world as if the world they were once in wasn't good enough.
Alderam took small steps, looking around dazed at his surroundings. What will happen? Alderam was terrified. He didn't know if he was afraid of what Perseus is capable of or the fact that the possibility of him enjoying everything is increasing. Alderam just wants to go home. But does he? He has no idea. Seems like as every day goes by, every hour, minute and seconds he became less conscious of himself.
Today, one of the worst-best moments Alderam has experienced. They consumed a soul.
This term wasn't literal. They did not take away someone's life. They made the soul consume them. Today, Alderam learned that darkness was everyone's weakness. No matter if we try to hide or ignore them, they will always be there. Alderam was no good at consuming, but Perseus was. He was one of the best, everyone wishes they were him-especially someone special.
Now, it was time for Perseus to put his teaching skills towards something good. Alderam needs to be turned. He was a weak man, Perseus can feel his fear every single moment, and he was shrinking smaller and smaller-Perseus could see it.
He shoved Alderam to the corner of the room, prepared to get another soul. Her name was Madeline. The girl was young, innocent and beautiful. It took a few seconds for Perseus to rip his eyes away from her. There was sunshine in her smile, every time she appeared in the room, the day never ended and smiles never faded. Her clothes were casual-tight jeans, wide necked sweater and brown boots. She was innocent.
Madeline sighed, exhausted from the loaded work she was given a few days ago. Why am I here? She asked herself. Yes, the girl made everyone around her happy, but she didn't love herself much. There was something wrong, something off about her life. Madeline wanted change, but she didn't know how.
The day Perseus found her, he was instantly intrigued. Her radiance was bright, but her fear was everywhere. He knew he had to know her. Perseus would unconsciously follow her around, protect her from mistakes and watched from afar. It came to a point she even acknowledge his existence because Perseus thought it was suitable. He didn't know what got into him. He wanted her to see him.
Alderam stared at Perseus as he stared at the beautiful girl. Perseus wasn't the only one who could feel things. A strange sensation hits Alderam, it wasn't from him. It was from his teacher-Perseus. He was acting different. Is it because of the mysterious girl? He asked. It must be. Alderam smirked, finally, finding his opportunity to show his friend what he's got.
"Do you ever do anything right?"
"A nap will not make your problems go away."
"You are worthless." Alderam growled. Taken back by his action, Perseus stared his bright blue eyes at Alderam's brown ones. They were darker than usual. The blue eyes no longer felt a strong fear from the boy next to him but instead from the beauty.
Her eyes wide with horror. Her mouth rigid and opened. Madeline screamed. We can never truly feel another's pain, but her scream came close. It was the scream that puts every other thought on hold. The scream came again, desperate, terrified... human. Instead of being impressed with Alderam, Perseus was drowned with anger. He didn't like seeing Madeline hurt-scared.
"What did you do?" Perseus screamed at the boy. Still in the phase of the dark, Alderam wasn't afraid of Perseus. "This is exactly what you want. We are here to take her soul!"
"No, won't do that. We will not do that to her!"
"Then why did you bring me here?" Perseus paces back and forth in the room. Madeline couldn't see both of them, she didn't want to anyways. Even if she did, her eyes were fully shut.
"Alderam, you are nothing but a weak nobody. You were not supposed to take her because you can't do it." It was the brown eyes' turn to get mad. He no longer love right and wrong. He wanted to be right-all the time. Alderam smirked, "Watch me."
