The Devil In Her Dreams Chapter 172
Trigger WARNING!!! Pregnancy loss
As soon as Zamiel couldn’t sense Heaven, he knew something was wrong. He quickly went to her room and couldn’t find her. He sensed her grandmother’s scent in the room. Irene was back, but where was she?
Dreading the worst, Zamiel looked for her everywhere, tried to sense her presence, but to no avail.
Irene was back, and suddenly she and Heaven were gone. The only person he suspected was the devil. It would
explain why he couldn’t sense them. It seemed like the devil wanted to risk his kingdom after all. Raging, Zamiel went outside and yelled.
“Lucifer! Show yourself!”
Unable to control his anger, the sky roared and rain poured down heavily. “Lucifer! Stop being a coward and show yourself!”
Lucifer materialized under the rain. “You tell me to show myself when you cause this much rain.” He said, getting drenched.
“Where is Heaven?”
“I don’t know.”
“Trust me. It would be no secret if I had taken her.”
“Then you didn’t take Irene either.”
Lucifer frowned. “What do you mean? Isn’t she under the ocean?”
“She came back and now she is gone with Heaven.”
“Maybe Irene took her down to the ocean.” Lucifer said.
Zamiel could breathe a little. Maybe he got worked up for nothing and they were only under the ocean.
Ignoring Lucifer, he quickly went to look under the ocean.
“Irene is gone?!” Euphorion asked, looking surprised.
The slight relief Zamiel felt vanished in the blink of an eye. If they weren’t taken by Lucifer and they weren’t here, then where were they?
Zamiel went back to land, and Euphorion insisted on following him. They were met by Lucifer, and he frowned when he didn’t see them with Irene.
“She is not under the ocean!” Zamiel said.
Lucifer looked suspiciously at Euphorion. Both suspected each other.
“Listen! Our priority is to find them now. Put your fight aside.” The last thing he needed right now was two ancient demons fighting.
“If they are not under the ocean…” Lucifer said, shooting arrows with his eyes as he looked at Euphorion. “then

they were taken by witches. A powerful coven who can lock away their magic and conceal their whereabouts.”
“Are you sure it is witches?” Euphorion asked.
“Yes. Only ancient demons can hide from being sensed. He can’t sense her despite the mark.” He said, speaking of Zamiel.
It sounded right. Zamiel hadn’t been able to sense when his family was in danger and got killed by witches. Powerful witches.
The same thing was being repeated. If he lost Heaven then he would…
It suddenly became hard to breathe, and fear made him want to vomit.
“How can we find them?” He asked, trying to keep it together.
“We need to find other witches who can lead us to them.” Lucifer said.
Witches had abducted them, but how and why?
“I think there was a witch amongst us.” her grandmother said thoughtfully.
“You mean in the castle”
Her grandmother nodded. “Yes.”
“We would have noticed.”
Irene shook her head. “Some powerful witches have the ability to hide themselves. Somehow, your father did the same when he came back alive. We were unable to know he was alive because we couldn’t find him.”
This was bad news. So Zamiel wouldn’t be able to find her. They had to escape on their own, but what did they give her to make her unable to move?
Her grandmother looked sad and lost in thoughts. “I guess it is happening to me now.” She said.
The look in her eyes frightening Heaven.
“What do you mean?”
“Everything bad you do in life eventually catches up to you. We used to do this. Our coven was very powerful. We
would catch demons, give them a mix of herbs with magic to take away their demon powers and paralyze them.
We would tie them up and then burn them. The burning was to punish because they could heal and then they
would burn again. The witches believed it washed away their sins, just like humans would burn in hell without dying. Then at the end we would kill them.” She explained.
So that was what awaited them. Heaven couldn’t let that happen. She had to save her child. The bleeding was probably nothing serious.
“We will heal, right?”
Her grandmother looked down as if she had lost all hope. She knew how this worked, so she probably thought they were hopeless.
“The herb will only paralyze us more before we start healing. Now it is only our lower body. We will become completely paralyzed.”
“Then we have to find a way quickly.” She refused to give up.
“Just hope that Zamiel finds you.” She said.
“Grandma! I am pregnant. Please!”
Irene almost hit her head against the wall behind her and shut her eyes tightly. She seemed to go through some inner struggle.
Just then, the door to the room opened and a man and a woman stepped inside.
They both seemed to be in their late forties and were dressed in all white.
“Let her go! I will pay for her sins.” Her grandmother spoke to them.
Heaven shook her as both witches turned to her. “You can’t pay for anyone else’s sins.”
The woman crouched, so she came face to face with Heaven. “I was hoping you would marry a human or a witch
and slowly leave the demon blood behind, but you got pregnant with a demon child instead.” The woman said, sounding disappointed.
Heaven thought she recognized her. She was a maid in the castle.
“You two are a disgrace to witches.” The male spat in disgust. He crossed his arms over his chest, hovering over her.
“You are risking your lives and your coven’s lives and probably many other witches’ lives. You don’t know that you are dealing with ancient demons mates.”
“Don’t worry about it. We will finish you and move forward before they find you.” The woman said.
“And you think they will stop searching after that?” Heaven asked.
She was feeling the numbness slowly traveling up her body. Now it reached her stomach. Her grandma seemed more paralyzed than her. She couldn’t move her arms now.
The woman ignored her and stood up. “We will start with her.” She said, nodding toward her grandmother.
“You will regret this.” Heaven said. “My mate will find me and if he doesn’t, he will find you some day.”
The man started dragging her grandmother out of the room. She was could barely move her body to defend herself.
“You don’t scare me, young lady. You put yourself in this position. After your grandmother it will be your turn and don’t worry about your unborn. We don’t punish innocents. We sent them away in peace.” The woman said.
Heaven froze. It took her a moment to realize what she had said. Her child… her child was dead. They killed her
innocent child. The world around her stopped. She didn’t know how long she had been frozen, but she was alone and locked in the room again.
She didn’t know whether to cry or scream, but tears already started streaming down her face. She held her
stomach and screamed. She punched the ground and walls, crying, until her hands started to bleed. Then she leaned against the wall exhausted.
She gently put her hand on her stomach. “I am sorry. Your mother is sorry for not protecting you.” She cried.
This world was too cruel. It wasn’t a safe place to bring an innocent child. She shouldn’t have been so excited. She just caused her child more pain.
And Zamiel. Oh Zamiel. She couldn’t imagine the pain he would go through when he found out that their child wasn’t alive anymore. And maybe even she would be gone by then. He would lose his family all over again.
The numbness slowly crawled even further up. Even though she knew there was no way out, she felt like she
couldn’t just sit around. She had to try something as long as her hands worked. She tried to use her magic again, and when it didn’t work, she tried to use her demon powers. That didn’t work either, of course.
She had to act like a human. How would she as a human escape? She was only surrounded by thick walls. She
tried to punch the wall next to the door to break it. A kick would have been better, but her legs were paralyzed.
She punched and punched slowly, creating a hole until her hands were bleeding. Then she slid her hand through the hole and reached for the door handle outside the room.
Heaven knew all this would be a waste. Even if she opened the door, she couldn’t run away, and she was getting
more and more paralyzed. The door was locked with some heavy metal she couldn’t break, which meant to get out, she needed to make a big hole in the wall.
She wouldn’t have time to do that. Feeling out of breath, she placed one bleeding hand on her chest. It came in contact with her necklace, the one she made to communicate with Ilyas.
Right! Her magic necklace!
Hopeful that it would work, she grabbed it and rubbed it. She made the necklace so that Ilyas would be able to
find her whenever she called him. Heaven rubbed and rubbed, hoping and praying for it to work.
“Please Lord. Make it work.”
