The Devil In Her Dreams Chapter 139
“Are you ready?” Zamiel looked at Euphorion, who had managed to dress decently this time.
“I don’t know how you can wear this.” He complained while adjusting his shirt.
Water demons covered parts of their bodies with what looked like fish scales, so he could understand that this kind of clothing was a unique experience for Euphorion. He had probably not been on land for too long.
“Well, I think I am ready now.” He said, giving up at last.
Zamiel looked at his blue hair. “You need to do something about that.”
Euphorion changes his hair to a golden color.
“And the nails.” Zamiel added.
Euphorion’s nails were too long, and that wasn’t even his demon claws.
He looked at his hands. “No human will see them.” He assured. “Anything else?”
“Yes. You forgot the shoes.”
Euphorion stared at his bare feet. “I don’t need them.” He said.
“I know but it is strange to walk around barefoot.”
Without a word, Euphorion slid his feet into the pair of shoes that Zamiel gave him, and then they were both ready to leave.

Euphorion was like a child who had never been outside. To be fair, he hadn’t been on land for a very long time, and things looked much different now.
Zamiel would always feel a bit misplaced every time he woke up to a changed world after a deep slumber. Euphorion must feel the same now, but worse.
He would be fine in a while. Demons were very quick to learn and adjust because of all the information available through the human mind.
Zamiel showed him around until Euphorion was satisfied and then they went into a tavern to have something to eat and drink.
Wherever they went, they drew too much attention. As soon as they went into the tavern, it became quiet and all gazes turned toward them.
Curious, mesmerized and l.u.s.tful gazes stared at them and Zamiel could hear what was running through a few people’s minds.
“Oh, they are l.u.s.tful.” Euphorion pointed, also able to hear their thoughts.
One intoxicated male whistled and gestured for him to come with a finger, and the other ones sitting at the table laughed. Zamiel gave them a look that made them swallow their own laughter in fear.
The room turned silent as they made their way to a table and sat down.
“Alright. I know I said it is too hot but you are making my teeth shatter.” Euphorion whispered.
Zamiel didn’t realize what he was doing and stopped.
“I think being without your mate is making you sensitive. I am sure you are used to this.” He continued.
Zamiel sighed and relaxed. Everyone in the room eventually relaxed as well and the loud chatter started again.
Euphorion and Zamiel were served food and drinks and Euphorion was still getting used to the cooked food. Ancients rarely needed to eat. It was only for enjoyment, and Euphorion enjoyed certain things more than others.
He left all the meat aside and ate the vegetables. It was probably the closest to what they ate in the oceans.
“What is this?” he asked, picking up the bread.
“It is called bread. It is made of things you won’t know.”
Euphorion took a bite, and then grimaced. “It tastes awful.” He said, forcing himself to chew and swallow the piece.
“I don’t like it either.” Zamiel agreed.
“So what is your plan exactly?” Euphorion asked, this time communicating with him telepathically.
Euphorion had offered to help him because, well, he hated Lucifer. Whether he could be of help depended on
whether his suspicion turned out right or wrong. He was waiting for an answer from Irene. He had already told her what she needed to do.
If his suspicion was right, then Euphorion would be of great help. His plan would be perfect.
“I will let you know as soon as I have the more information.” Zamiel told him.
Euphorion gave him a look. “It better be a good plan. I don’t want to waste my time.”
Zamiel chuckled. Time was the only thing they could waste without regret.
“If my suspicion is right, then my plan will be one you will enjoy very much. It will be worth the wait.” He told him.
“Good. But what if your suspicion turns out to be wrong?”
“Then I’ll just have to wait until the enemy destroys himself, like you suggested.” Zamiel said.
“I hope your suspicion is right then. I am here to enjoy Lucifer’s suffering.”
On his visit to the ocean, Euphorion had showed him the history of all djinn, including the devil. It was carved into stones and it was the first time Zamiel had seen the ill.u.s.trations. All this time, they had been hidden under the ocean.
Zamiel found out details he didn’t know before, especially about the devil. There was one specific ill.u.s.tration
that had caught his attention. The devil eating the forbidden fruit. That was where his suspicion came from, together with a few more unclear ill.u.s.trations about the devil.
The ill.u.s.trations were mostly symbols and had to be interpreted. It was simple. If someone laid out too many traps, they would end up falling into a few themselves. And the devil was no exception.
“Have you found your mate?” Zamiel asked.
Euphorion shook his head.
“Did you mate with someone?”
So he was alone all those years? Usually when demons didn’t find their mates after a long time, they mated with someone else to reproduce.
“Maybe you will find her here.” Zamiel said, knowing it would annoy him.
“Maybe your mate isn’t a water demon, or a demon at all.” Zamiel said.
“What are you implying?”
“What if your mate is on land, but you are always in the waters? And what if she is human?”
Euphorion grimaced. He didn’t like the idea. “I am not looking for my mate, and if I happen to find her, I pray it is not a human. Their emotions are unpredictable and it could end up in a heartbreak.”
Zamiel understood Euphorions’ concerns. Humans weren’t bound by the mating bond as demons were.
“There is a risk of getting your heart broken, but it is a risk worth taking.”
“You say that because your mate is human.” He took a sip from his drink. “And witch. And the devil’s granddaughter. What a mixture. Imagine your children.”
Zamiel froze. Children? The thought of having a child made him nervous. That extreme, overwhelming love for his child, he could still feel it until today.
His most vivid memory was when his daughter was born, and he held her in his arms for the first time. For a long
time that memory was replaced by the one of holding her dead body, but now that he got to meet her he could think of the good memories instead of the bad ones.
“What about you? Don’t you want children?” Zamiel asked.
Euphorion chuckled. “Those small being? No. I don’t think I can handle them. They are better without me.”

Zamiel smiled. This was a common problem with ancients. After living for so long, it was easy to become
emotionally detached. To see things as simple or none important. To stop enjoying and appreciating the small things. Ancients could fight other ancients, but innocent beings as children would scare them.
“You and Heaven should just come and live in the ocean.” Euphorion said.
His plan was close to that. The ocean was part of the solution.
