The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 51
Married To The Devil’s Son Volume 3: The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 174 – 51
While being busy with preparations all day, the night already came. Heaven stared at herself in the mirror while Kate brushed her hair. She was exhausted, yet her mind was flooded with many thoughts and questions. Her heart felt heavy after what happened with Zarin. Did she do the right thing by telling him the truth? Was he alright now?
He was impulsive, so she worried that he would get himself into trouble. But she could not go back to him now after saying goodbye. Both of them needed distance from each other. It was necessary.
Still, rationalizing things did not take away the heavy feeling in her heart. Tonight she needed her mother. Only a mother’s love could heal all wounds.
She dressed for sleep, covered herself with a cloak and made her way to her parents’ quarters. In the hall she came across her father.
“Heaven, what brings you here?” He asked.
“I thought of stealing mother from you tonight.” Heaven smiled.
“Did something happen?”
“No. Everything is alright.” She assured him.
Her father raised a brow. He knew she was lying. “Well, I wanted to talk to you.” Heaven said.
“Come.” He wrapped his arm around her shoulders and led her to his study. “Sit.” He urged.
Heaven sat at the table and her father sat across from her. “What is bothering you?” He asked.
The bald King and her father had established an alliance, but King Rufus wanted her father’s army to conquer another kingdom. When her father refused, he broke their alliance. This told her he wasn’t a clever king. He should have made the terms clear before agreeing to become an ally.
“Father, do you use your demon abilities to rule?” She asked him.
“Yes, sometimes. I used to do it more in the beginning, but then you just learn to rule normally.”
“But that wasn’t what you wanted to talk about.” He added.
No, it wasn’t. In fact, she didn’t know exactly what she wanted to talk about. She just wanted to talk.
“Father, what do you think about Zamiel? Do you like him?”
Her father was thoughtful for a while. “Would I be a bad father if I said I like him?”
“No, no. Not at all.” Heaven assured. “What makes you like him?”
“He reminds me of myself.” Her father smiled.
“How so?” Now Heaven was curious.
“The pain and guilt in his eyes. The confusion and self-blame.” Her father replied, staring emptily in front of him as if he was reminded of something. Heaven wondered why her father blamed himself and felt guilty.
“I can’t imagine losing you and your mother. I would never be able to forgive and forget, but he was even able to love again.”
“You don’t know what you are capable of until you are put in that situation.” Heaven said.
Her father smiled. It was a sad smile. “You have truly grown. I thought I was protecting you by providing you with everything. Keeping you safe and away from struggles. I didn’t realize that would make you struggle later. But you have grown well despite my lack of well upbringing. I see that Zamiel has a good influence on you. You have become more confident and strong.”
Yes, Zamiel had a positive influence on her. “Father, I really hope you get along with Zamiel. He doesn’t have a family, so I want him to feel welcomed when he comes here. I know you have to act like a father, but please be kind to him.”
“I will.” Her father promised.
“Then I’ll go and steal your place in bed next to mother.” Heaven teased.
He sighed. “I am sure she missed you more than me.”
After saying goodnight to her father, she went to her mother, who was already preparing to go to bed.
“Heaven?” Her mother seemed surprised.
“Mother, is it alright if I sleep with you tonight?” Heaven asked.
“Of course.” Her mother replied.
Her mother only left a few candles lit and then got into bed with her. They lay turned, facing each other.
“Are you having a tough time?” Her mother asked. “You seemed stressed this morning.”
Yes, when she barged into her mother’s room and stole her guards, just to give them orders. She felt bad for everyone she met this morning. It felt like she was taking out the anger she felt toward herself and Zarin on them.
Heaven didn’t like to worry her mother. She was the last person she would tell about her own struggles because she felt very protective of her. But tonight she wanted to talk to her. To let her know what bothered her and let her mother comfort her.
“I just have a lot on my mind.” She said.
Her mother reached for her and caressed her hair. At that moment Heaven wanted to burst into tears, but she would end up shocking and worrying her.
���Let me take some of what is on your mind.” Her mother said.
“I had a fight with Zarin.” Heaven began.
“I am sure it will be alright. You guys always get back together.”
Heaven shook her head. “No. This time it is different. He… he said that he loves me.”
A frown settles on her mother’s face, and she was quiet for a while. “Love as in…”
“Yes.” Heaven quickly replied.
“I am sure he doesn’t mean it that way. There might have been a misunderstanding.” Her mother said.
“No mother. There is no misunderstanding. At least not this time.”
Her mother became quiet again. “What did you say?” She finally asked.
Heaven told her mother everything that happened and what they said to each other. She wanted to know her mother’s thoughts about the situation.
“You did well.” Her mother said.
Heaven was surprised.
“If that is truly what you felt then being honest with him was necessary.” Her mother explained. “But…”
Her heart raced as she waited for her mother to continue.
“Did you ask him to marry you?”
“I know you trust him, but you should have spoken to us first.”
“I… I was just afraid. I really didn’t want to be with a stranger so I thought a friend would be better.”
Her mother sighed. “I guess he said no since nothing happened.”
“Yes. He didn’t want the responsibilities of being a king.”
“Was he in love with you at that time?”
Heaven never thought about it much until now.
“I don’t know.” She admitted.
Could it have started then? Did she give him the wrong impression? No, it couldn’t be. He tried to help her find a husband after that, and he even watched her meet several suitors. Would he let that happen if he loved her then?
“Do you think he will be alright?” Heaven asked.
“I am sure he will be fine.” Her mother assured.
Heaven felt good talking to her mother, and she slept peacefully afterward.
When she woke up in the morning, the second thing she did after getting dressed was to visit Zamiel. It was still early, so she wasn’t surprised to find him sleeping in bed when she arrived. She felt like she was invading his privacy, but she couldn’t help but go near him and watch his relaxed face as he slept.
He had a strange way of sleeping. He slept on his back with hands resting on his stomach, as if he was dead and laying in a coffin.
Suddenly he shot his eyes open, startling her, but he kept staring at the ceiling without blinking. It was like he didn’t know she was there and he was scaring her.
“Zamiel.” She called carefully.
His head slowly turned, and his eyes glared at her with hatred. Heaven’s heart skipped in fear. The look in his eyes terrified her as he slowly sat up.
“I saw you in my dream.” He began. Unlike his stormy eyes, his tone was calm. “You killed them and… you just left.”
Heaven was confused. Did he see her kill his family?
He stood up, still glaring at her. Slowly, he stepped forward. Heaven did her best to not step back, but as he kept coming toward her, she eventually took a step back, then two. But Zamiel didn’t stop, and she ended up stepping back until her back hit the wall.
Zamiel stopped when he was close enough.
“It was just a bad dream.” She assured him.
“It felt so real.” He said, his voice void of any emotion.
“So you think it is real? You think I did it? You want to kill me now?” She looked him straight in the eyes, but she didn’t like what she saw.
His eyes seemed dead. Like he didn’t care whether she died or not
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 52
“Zamiel.” Heaven tried to call the Zamiel she knew because this wasn’t him.
He kept looking at her, now the storms in his eyes returning. He was angry again.
“You stabbed them. You… you stabbed a child several times.”
“I am sorry.” Heaven said. Even if it was a dream, it felt real to him and it must have been horrible to see her, the woman he loved, stabbing his family to death.
He shut his eyes tightly and his hands clenched into fists.
“Don’t apologize.” He said. “It’s not your fault. It is mine.”
Opening his eyes, he turned away from her and went back to bed. He sat down and buried his face in his hands.
Heaven just stood there for a while, looking at this troubled man. She didn’t know what to do. She was still confused.
Carefully she approached him, and as if he was afraid by her closeness he looked up quickly. Heaven halted.
“You probably have a lot to do. I don’t want to distract you.” He said, his voice returning to one she recognized, but his sudden change confused her.
“Zamiel, are you alright?” She hurried to him.
She crouched in front of him, resting her arms on his thighs while looking up at his face.
He looked at her. “Look at me.” He began. “Look. I told you, I have nothing good to offer you. I thought for a while I could do better, that I could be better for you but…” He shook his head as if disappointed with himself. “You should leave me while you can.”
“Would you? Would you leave me if I was hurting?”
A frown settled on his face. “Never.”
“Then how do you expect me to leave you? Is it love if I only stay with you through good times? And…” She didn’t even know where to begin to remove the bad thoughts from his mind. “Who said you have nothing to offer? You already offered a lot. Before you came, I was just a girl doing nothing with her life, with no courage or confidence to make a change. I was even thinking of marrying a stranger. You made me believe in myself, believe that I could make a change even if it was a small one. When I was close to giving up, you were there again to remind me I could do it. I am the person I am now because of you. You make me feel strong, wanted and needed. So I am going nowhere. Just like the way you encourage me when I am giving up, I’ll be there to pull you back from the edge when you are about to fall. It’s give and take.” She smiled.
He took her hands and made them stand up. Then he drew her into his arms and kissed her. It was a quick kiss, but he never kissed her like that before. He sucked the breath out of her lungs, leaving her weak and needy just to stop. Both took shallow, shaky breaths, but Heaven didn’t want it to end yet. She wanted more.
Wrapping her arms around his neck, she kissed him back with the same intensity. She felt her body tremble but ignored it. Lost in the heat, she could only focus on her body’s urges. It scared her, but again she pushed it to the back of her mind. Her fingers entangled in his hair and she drew him closer. It was like she couldn’t get enough. His warmth, his scent and his taste was addicting.
Zamiel grabbed her arms and pulled away, “Heaven.” But she didn’t let him. She wasn’t done yet, so she kissed him again. How could she get enough of this taste? The taste of… what was this taste?
“Heaven.” He pulled her away and this time she let him.
His lips were bleeding, and he had scratches on his neck. Heaven was shocked. Did she do this?
She felt something strange in her mouth. Her fangs. She had cut him with her fangs!
When he saw the shocked look on her face, “it’s alright.” He told her.
“No.” She shook her head. “I did this.”
He was also bleeding from the scratched on his neck. It was her claws.
“I am so sorry.” She didn’t know what to do.
“It’s nothing. Don’t worry. It will he…” He stopped.
Oh, no! Since she caused the injuries, he wouldn’t heal fast.
“I’ll go wash up.” He said. “Don’t go. I’ll be back.”
Even his teeth got stained by how much he was bleeding.
Heaven wiped the blood from her own lips, then stood there frozen. What was she supposed to do? She had no control over herself. What was this feeling?
Her legs could barely hold her up, so she sat down on his bed carefully. Her claws and fangs were still out. She wanted to scold them. Would she always be like this with Zamiel? Would she always hurt him? How could she control it?
She waited for Zamiel both worried and anxious. What was taking him so long? Was he alright?
Heaven jumped out of bed with a shriek. Turning around, Zamiel was lying on the bed behind her.
He smiled at her mischievously. “Now you don’t have to feel guilty. I scared you. It’s give and take.”
She couldn’t help but smile at his ridiculous behavior, even though her heart was still racing. Looking at his lips, he wasn’t bleeding anymore, but there were several visible cuts. He must have endured her brutal kissing for a while. And the scratched on his neck made her squeal inside.
“Come!” He said, patting beside him on the bed.
Heaven crawled up on and he lent her his arm to lie on. She felt her heart race lying next to him on his bed.
“I am sorry.” She said again. She couldn’t help it. “But why is it you don’t heal when I hurt you? Isn’t it strange?”
“I have been thinking about it.” He said. “Created demons don’t have a definitive way to die. Every created demon dies in a different way, and they have to find what it is that kills them. Therefore, created demons find it easier to go into slumber instead of dying because they would have to test different methods until they find the one that can kill them.” He explained.
“So are you saying I am the thing that can kill you?” She asked.
“I believe so.” He replied.
“I shouldn’t know this then.” She said.
“I trust you. If you one day decide to kill me I am sure I’ll be deserving of it.”
Heaven shook her head. “Don’t say that.” She remembered the day he asked her to kill him. She never wanted to relive that moment. “That day will never come.”
Suddenly she thought of something and pushed herself up on an elbow. “Zamiel?”
“Could you show me? The things you have been through.” She wanted to understand him better so she could help him.
He shook his head, “No!” He said firmly. “I don’t want you to ever see it or feel it.”
“No but…” He cut her off. “I won’t.”
She sighed and laid her head on his arm again. She remembered the pieces she saw when he kissed her. That alone her made her stomach turn. She couldn’t imagine what it would feel like to see it in her nightmares again and again, therefore she had to see it for herself, to at least understand a little. She would ask her grandmother for help.
“Heaven, I just… I think it’s enough me bearing those memories. There is no need to trouble yourself with them.”
“I understand.” She said.
“Do you want to talk about your friend now?” He asked.
“There is nothing much to say. He confessed his love, and I told him I had no feelings for him, so we stopped being friends.”
He was quiet for a while, just like her mother. “Are you alright?” He finally asked.
She shrugged. “I am fine.”
“It’s alright not to be.” He told her.
Heaven looked up at him and frowned. “Shouldn’t you be jealous?” She asked.
She remembered when she met his friend Axia. Just knowing he had a female friend made her uneasy.
He chuckled. “Do you want me to be jealous?”
“Alright. I am jealous, but he means a lot to you. Doesn’t he?”
Heaven nodded. “Yes. He was the only person in my age I could be with. My childhood was less lonely because of him. The day we became friends, I was so happy. It was slow at first, he was the smarter and calmer of us. He was better than me in fighting and learning. Then we grew and changed. He inherited his parents’ good looks and got many friends outside. He started becoming less interested in lessons to eventually just stop coming. As we continued to grow he became this free person who just enjoyed life. And I became the opposite. Since 3 years back, all I could hear was marriage and taking responsibilities. Maybe that is when we started to grow apart. More than a friend who took me outside, at that moment I needed someone who listened and maybe he needed someone to enjoy life with him.”
Heaven smiled sadly while reflecting on their friendship. No matter what went wrong between them, she hoped the best for him. Maybe one day, after healing, they could be friends again. That is at least what she hoped.
Now thinking about marriage, she found the reason to why she felt like she had to succeed to become a ruler. Her mother got married to her father whom she didn’t even know when she was only seventeen and her whole life revolved around being prepared for that day. She knew many princesses and women went through the same thing. As a woman if she could take the first step to make a change, especially since she had the advantage of being a demon and a witch and because she had people supporting her, she could open possibilities for other women to find the courage and do the same.
Women shouldn’t only be used as tools to trade for power.
“What about you?” She asked. “Did you ever stop being friends with someone?”
His expression changed as soon as she asked. He stared up at the ceiling and she felt his body tense. “Yes. She also confessed her love to me, and I denied her. So she locked me in a coffin.” Despite his effort to sound calm, Heaven could hear the fury in his voice.
“But you said a witch locked you inside?”
“Yes. My friend was a witch.” He said.
So after the death of his family, his friend betrayed him and locked him inside. It was like someone killing her family and then Zarin betraying her. No! That was too much.
“Zamiel.” Heaven sat up and turned to him. Now she wanted to have a serious talk. “You spoke about marriage once. Marrying me means having witches as family members.”
“It means having a witch as my wife.” He said.
If they were to be honest, she was already his wife in the demon world. The mark faded, but the urge never disappeared, so their bond didn’t break completely yet.
The way her grandmother explained to her, breaking the bond was not as easy as only getting rid of the mark, since usually the mark faded after some time and had to be renewed from time to time. This didn’t mean that the bond broke every time the mark faded, as long as the urge to renew it was still there.
Since it is almost impossible to fight the urge to renew the mark, in most cases, the marking happened soon after the mark faded. But hers and Zamiel’s case was different. She didn’t understand how he was still able to fight the urge. Was it because he was ancient?
“Yes. And it’s good if you get to know my family. My mother wants to meet you.”
Before getting married, it would be good if her family and him got familiar with each other.
He sat up, looking nervous. Heaven couldn’t help to smile at his reaction.
“Don’t worry. Just be yourself.” She told him.
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 53
Heaven went back home smiling at Zamiel’s
reaction. No matter how old someone was,
there was no such thing as too experienced,
she realized. It was normal to be nervous,
even she was nervous for him despitee
knowing that he would do well.
Before leaving him, he had kissed her lightly,
but she was still giddy. And her fangs and
claws were still out. What was this man
doing to her?
She let herself fall back on her bed and kept
giggling to herself. Abruptly she stopped.
What was she doing? She had important
things to take care of. She would see Zamiel
later anyway, when he comes to have dinner
with her mother.
Now she had to prepare for her fighting
lesson with Roshan. It would be awkward if
he knew what happened between her and
his son. Not that Zarin was the type to tell
his parents anything or listen to them.
Every time they told him to do something
or not to do something he would say,
“alright, I will” or, “alrightI won’t” and then
forget about it the next moment.
One day his mother had enough and
dragged him to his lesson. “If you don’t
attend your lessons, don’t come back
home.” She told him.
Zarin was closer to his mother and Gina to
her father. Every time there was a fight
between the parents, Roshan would say
you spoiled your son. Look how well I
raised my daughter”
Just like the way her mother spoke to her
father, ‘you spoiled your daughter.
Your? it was never our when they did
It was the same when one parent did

she wanted to correct them and say, my
father and your husband. Sometimes she
even wanted to tease her mother and say,
“it’s his Majesty, the King. You could get
Maybe she would someday in the future.
Only a year ago Heaven remembered a
conversation Roshan had with her father.
He was complaining about raising children.
“I never thought it would be this difficult.”
He said. “The more they grow, the harder it
Her father nodded in agreement. “As a
parent, it feels like whatever you do, it is
“The girl is fine, but raising a boy… Roshan
shook his head.
Her father chuckled. “Boys are rebellious
He will calm down eventually.
“When? Roshan asked. “When I was his age,
I was taking care of my father’s business and
bringing in more wealth than him. When
you were his age, you had already joined the
royal council, were a commander of the
royal army and won several battles. When
his uncle was his age, he was establishing a
kingdom. Men his age are providing for
That was the day Heaven realized she had
duties and responsibilities. She couldn’t just
deny to get married. It was her duty as a
No matter how playful Roshan was, when it
came to business he was serious. Time and
money are things you need to use wisely.”
He would tell them. “Use your brain and
your strength generously. The more you
use them, the stronger they grow.
He would always give them advice from
time to time, Gina would take them and
Zarin would leave them.
Because of Roshan, Heaven had learned to
not blame her parents and appreciate
Trying to be a good parent is like trying to
solve a riddle with no answer. He once told
her. Heaven was young then, but she
understood that being a parent was not
easy. If someone like Roshan was
Complaining, then she could only
Heaven loved Roshan. She didn’t want him
to dislike her because of Zarin, so she was
nervous to meet him.
She went to the backyard and found him
training with Gina. She watched them for a
while from a distance until they noticed
“Heaven!” Gina waved for her to come.
She went to them, and Gina gave her a smile
as usual. Heaven wasn’t worried about Gina.
She had always told her to keep the
relationship between them and the one
with her brother separate.
“Good morning.” Heaven greeted both.
“Good morning.” Roshan replied, and
Heaven tried to analyze his facial
expression. He seemed as usual.
Gina moved out of the way so her father
could train Heaven. This time Roshan threw
daggers at her and Heaven caught them in
the air. She looked at him questioningly.
“I think you fight very well with a sword
now. It will be much more beneficial to fight
with daggers when fighting demons. They
are also easier to carry everywhere. He
Roshan was the master of using daggers, but
Heaven did at least not make a fool of
herself while learning this time. After
fighting with the demons on the party, her
will to learn had increased. She wanted to
master the daggers as well.
You have improved a lot.” Roshan said,
looking impressed when the lesson ended.
“Thank you. Heaven said panting. “Thank
you for taking your time every day to teach
She gave him back the daggers. Keep
them. He said. “You have to get used to
The daggers were very sharp and easy to
hold and carry. “Thank you. She said again,
and then they parted ways.
Going back to her room, Heaven expected
to find Gina but found her grandmother
instead. She could feel the scent of her
grandmother’s delicious tea.
“Did you make me tea? She asked.
Her grandmother nodded. “Come, lets drink
in the garden.
Once they sat outside, Heaven thought of
asking her grandmother for help. Perhaps
her grandmother could show her with
magic what it feels like to be locked inside
or have your family killed. She had to
admit she was scared to see all of that, but she
really wanted to know how much it
“No!” Her grandmother said, just like
“No but! You don’t know what you are
asking. You never want to go through
anything like that. Even in your dreams.
Heaven frowned. It looked like her
grandmother was speaking from
“Heaven, Zamiel needs time to heal. The
only thing and the best thing you can do for
him is just to be there.”
“It doesn’t feel enough. Heaven said.
Something was wrong with Zamiel. He was
getting worse just when she thought he was
It is enough. Don’t push him or try to make
him heal faster. Just…” Her grandmother was suddenly upset.
“Grandma? What is wrong? Heaven asked,
“Nothing. It’s just difficult without your
Oh. Heaven had forgotten that her
grandmother almost went through the same
thing. She could see the pain in her eyes as
she continued to speak.
“There is no pain like the pain when your
child is taken from you. Knowing that you
couldn’t protect them… Her voice broke,
and she shook her head as if fighting back
Heaven felt like crying. She had never seen
her grandmother like this.
To know that you will never hold them
again, or never be able to see them grow,
cry or smile. It is agonizing. To lose your
child and the person you love at the same
time, must be even more agonizing. I have
also been locked in a coffin. Not nearly as
long as he has, but the short time I was
locked took many years to heal from. I still
don’t like dark, confined spaces. Even in
your dreams, I won’t let your experience
such a thing”
Heaven never thought about it from her
grandmother’s perspective. She usually
tried to imagine losing her parents to
understand Zamiel. But losing a parent was
not the same as losing a child. Both were
painful, but losing a child seemed to be
followed by guilt. That as a parent you failed
to protect your child. Zamiel was dealing
with a lot of emotions and no matter how
hard she tried to understand, she could
never truly understand. Like her
grandmnother said, she just had to be there
Is there a problem between you two? Her
Heaven shook her head. “I just hate to see
him suffer, but he is… everything I had been
looking for. I told you once that I want to
find a man like father. I found him. She
smiled, feeling shy. “He is coming here
today. I hope mother gives him a chance.
Her grandmother sighed. “He is not one to
wait for a chance. He takes it.”
Heaven tilted her head curiously. Her
grandmother seemed oddly fond of
“Grandma? It seems like you like him.
I do. I was getting tired of you meeting all
those men looking for power. I have always
wanted someone strong for you, someone
who puts you first, someone who makes you
bloom. While you were meeting suitors, I
have actually been looking for him, but I
don’t have too anymore. He came on his
Now Heaven was confused. “What do you
mean him? Did you know him?
Her grandmother put her teacup down. A
Smile curved her lips. It looked like she had
been waiting to tell her whatever she was
going to say.
“My mother had the ability to see glimpses
of the future. She had predicted that your
father would be a great ruler. I discovered
that I have the same ability. I have been
having dreams about you and possibly the
man in your life.”
Heaven listened curiously. “What did you
What do you thinks her grandma sees in her dreams.

Two days passed and Heaven didn’t come to

said to him. Why did he expect her to
come? Maybe she was right. She was always
the one to come and apologize whenever
they fought, and he was expecting the same
thing even now. But Heaven had changed.
She was not the childhood friend that he
knew. He wouldn’t mind the change if it
didn’t happen so suddenly. He just didn’t
He had planned to leave her, to distance
himself, so why was he still here hoping and
expecting that she would come to check on
him? To see if he was alright and apologize
for what she said. But she didn’t come. His
old friend was truly gone. She had every
right to be angry if he truly made her feel
the way she felt. Still, the friend he knew
would never leave him, even then. This
made him suspicious of Zamiel. He had to
make Sure that the ancient demon wasn’t
tricking her. That his intentions were pure.
Only then he would leave Heaven to
A knock on the door disrupted his thoughts.

inside Is everything alright?” He asked.
His father opened the door completely and
stepped inside. You have never been in
your room for so long.
just want to be alone. He said.
I know you had a fight with Heaven. Do you
want to talk about it? Roshan asked.
Zarin stood up from his seat. “We fight all
the time. There is nothing to talk about. I
need to go now, father. He said grabbing his
jacket. He needed to know more about

happy if you just leave.” Roshan
Zarin put his jacket on. “Tell her, I am sorry.
He said then left his room.
When he arrived at the old house where
Zamiel stayed, he was Surprised to find it
under construction work. What was
He went to one of the construction workers
to find out some information.
This mansion is being rebuilt for Lord
Zamiel. The old man said.
Zarin nodded. Where is he now? He
Who are you? The Construction worker
I am his friend. I have been looking for him
and I was directed here. He lied.
“I understand, but he lives somewhere else
The construction worker gave him directions,
and Zarin followed them. He
ended up finding his house at the end. Just
when he arrived, Zamiel was walking out of
his house. Zarin watched from afar so the
ancient demon wouldn’t be able to sense
him. Zamiel was dressed like a wealthy man
and a carriage came to pick him up.
The change surprised him but also made
him more suspicious, so he continued to
It seemed like Zamiel was meeting other
wealthy men and they were doing business
together. The other men addressed him
with respect, which meant he was wealthier
than them. Where did he get his wealth
from? The items of negotiation were gold,
silver, and high-quality fabrics. It wasn’t
easy things to be obtained in a matter of
Things only got more mysterious as he
continued to spy on him. It wasn’t only gold
and silver that was being traded, even lands
were included. When did he have time to buy
and own lands? What was this mans
Once Zamiel left, Zarin approached one of
the wealthy men trading with Zamiel. He
pretended to be interested in buying a land
just to find out more information abouit
He is a wealthy man from the Stasian
Empire, He wants to settle down here and
has already started trading gold and lands.
The man explained.
It seemed like Zamiel was trying to make a
name for himself, He must be planning to
marry Heaven. He was already becoming
famous among rich people, and many were
interested in working with him.
The ancient demon was clever, No wonder
Heaven was smitten by him.
Zarin had lost Zamiel while speaking to the
other man. Maybe he went back home, but
when he turned back, he was surprised to
find Zamiel standing behind him. He had been caught.
Did you find out anything interesting?
Zamiel asked, amused.
Zarin glared at him. “Nothing that makes me
less suspicious of you.” He replied.
“MaybeI can get rid of your suspicion. Why
don’t you have some tea with me? He
Zarin was confused, but he didn’t want to
seem afraid of this man, so he followed him
to his home. Zamiel invited him inside and
they went to sit in his living room. An old
maid served them tea.
Zamiel picked up his cup and took a sip, but
Zarin had no intention of drinking his
“I told Heaven that I love her” Zarin said,
expecting a reaction from him.
Zamiel didn’t seem the least surprised.
How disappointing” He said which both
angered and confused Zarin.
“Why would you be disappointed?” He
“Because I considered you a competition,
but you were not even near that. I was
thinking of stepping away if you truly
became a man worthy of her love, and she
loved you back. But now, even if she did,I
Wouldn’t give up on her because I think she
deserves better than a man confessing his
love without committing to it.
Zarin was fuming with anger, You know
nothing about me
“I would say likewise, but since you seem to
judge me a lot, I took the freedom to do the
Zarin was baffled. This man had a smart
mouth. He didn’t like him at all.
“While you are here, I would like to
apologize for hurting you the first day we
met. I am sorry” Zamiel apologized.
Surprised, all Zarin could do was stare at
him for a moment. This man seemed
Zarin didn’t want to believe him. He didn’t
want to believe all the nice things Heaven
said about him. All the things he did for
Heaven and how he made her feel. What
would that make him compared to this
man? A useless person. He didn’t want to be
Standing up. “I am leaving He said.
“Only old people drink tea Zarin said,
trying to mock him.
Zamiel smirked. Well, l guess it is not
something for a child.
Child? Zarin scoffed. He had enough of this
man so teleported back to his home.
He followed the scent of food to the dining
room Where dinner was being served.
“You are back”His mother said walking into
the room. You must be hungry.
“I am not.” He said. He had lost his appetite.
“I’ll go to sleep.” Before his mother could
protest, he teleported to his room.
He lied down on his bed and covered
himself. What was wrong with him? He had
promised himself that he would stop caring
and distance himself from Heaven and her
life. But the things she said to him kept
ringing in his ears. All the questions she
asked that he didn’t have an answer for. He
just knew he loved her and he thought that
he did enough, but she didn’t think the same
What did Zamiel do for her? Was it because
he was powerful? Or because he was
wealthy? He knew the females liked the
much older demons. They were just more
attractive and powerful. Was this what it
Maybe this is why his father pestered him
to do something with his life. Speaking of
his father, he arrived at his room.
“Zarin, lets talk.” His father said.
“I don’t feel like talking.”
He could hear his father sigh. I know what
happened between you and Heaven
He suddenly wanted to shout. Why was this
happening to him? Father, I dont want to
talk about it.” He repeated.
“I know you don’t like me because l keep
telling you to do something with your life,
but it is only because I want what is best for
you. If you dislike it so much, I’ll stop. But
talk to me.”
“It is not something you will understand.
Zarin said. “I’ll try”
Zarin sat up. He really didn’t feel like talking
about love with his father. Nor his
His father came to sit next to him and
waited patiently for him to say something.
“I know what you will say. You will tell me to
not waste my time because she belongs to
someone else.” Zarin said.
Loving someone is not a waste of time. His
father assured.Tell me, what do you love

Zarin shrugged. “I just love being with her.
love that she is a happy person, she is kind,
caring and a very good friend
She really was. Now he understood that she
was the one that was always there for him.
Whenever he went to her she was there
waiting for him. Even if he came late, she
would wait and sometimes even sleep on
the sofa while waiting. She never gave up on
him or their friendship until now.
“Let me ask you one thing” His father said.
If she ásked you to mary her now would
Zarin was taken aback by the question. So
many ideas went through his head, but he

If your mother asked me to marry her, I
wouldn’t blink before replying. Maybe you
should think about what you want to do
with that love. Just keeping it in your heart because it

What can you say about Zarin love for heaven.?
How do you see Zamiel new development?

The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 55
Grandma, what did you see in your
I saw a stallion, walking down a red carpet
that led to the throne. He held a crown
between his teeth as he stalked down the
path to the throne where you sat. When he
arrived, he placed the crown on your
A stallion? Heaven was confused.
Horses are majestie animals. They are
beings of power and represent nobleness
and heroism. They stand for courage
confidence, endurance and competition.
Her grandmother explained.
“Do you think the horse in this dream is
Zamiel?” Heaven asked
“I had this dream before you released
Zamiel, so I didn’t know who he was. I just
knew it was someone I hadn’t met yet. But I
have had several dreams. In one of them a
man was tending to an injured bird. A dove.
Once it healed, he set the bird free to fly. In
another dream, you were sitting under a
large tree seeking protection from the
sunlight. It provided you with shade and
you lay down and slept peacefully.
Heaven tilted her head to one side and tried
to understand the meaning of those dreams.
“What does all of that mean? She asked.
unable to figure that out on her own.
The dream where the man tended to the
dove means he tented to his love and then
set it free. Trees represent old age and
wisdom. It means the man in your life will
be old and wise. Just like a tree, he will stand
tall and steady and provide you with
protection. When you first released Zamiel
I never imagined him to be the one. But
slowly things started happening. The bite
disturbed me because that would mean you
couldn’t be with the man I saw in my
dreams. So I went on a journey to find out
more about the mark, and I came to the
conclusion that you two are true mates. But
then who was the man in my dream?
Her grandmother took a sip from her tea
and nodded before continuing. Then one
day you said you wanted to become a ruler.
It reminded me of the horse placing the
crown on your head. Ancients are powerful
and horses represent power. I slowly
started to put the pieces together. He was
old, wise and powerful, and he encouraged
you to rule. It fits into the description of
Zamiel. The last dream I had, you tied a
ribbon around a branch on the tree. She
“What does that mean?” Heaven asked.
It can mean a lot of things. Being
betrothed, married, bonded, mated. I’l let
you interpret it the way you like.”
Heaven nodded. She was happy that her
grandmother had those dreams. She wanted
Zamiel to be her man, to be bonded to him
in every way.
He might not be as steady as a tree right
now, but I still like him. Maybe I am
prejudiced because I had a similar
experience even though he seemns to be
more in control of his feelings unlike me. I
almost killed Klara one day.” She said.
Heaven’s eyes widened in surprise. She
never imagined her grandmother hurting
anyone. She wasn’t that kind of person.
Her grandmother shook her head. “I don’t
remember the details. I was just horrified
when I found my hands covered in blood
and Klara covered in bruises and cuts. She
might not have survived if she wasn’t a
fighter herself. I feel sorry until today.”
Suddenly her sad eyes showed concern. “I
hope Zamiel isn’t violent?”
Heaven shook her head. “Not at all.” Zamiel
would never hurt her. In fact, she might
have been the violent one.
She would have asked her grandmother for
advice, but her grandmother was a turned
demon and it was not the same.
“Here you are.” Suddenly Gina appeared in
Her grandmother stood up. “Come sit. I
have to go, anyway.” She said.
She excused herself and left them alone.
“It seems like you were talking about
something serious. Gina said as she sat
“No. We were only chatting. Zamiel is
coming to meet my mother this evening.”
Gina smiled. “That is wonderful. But you
know I need details. Tell me everything
from when he came to the party.
Heaven chuckled. She was glad someone
was as excited as her, so she told her
everything from the beginning and Gina listened
intently. Now and then she would
sigh with dreamy eyes, smile or clap. When
she told her about the kiss and her demon
awakening, both of them squealed happily
and shyly at the same time. When she was
done telling her everything, Gina sighed
“What a man. I am so happy for you. She
smiled. “Now I need to find myself an
Heaven chuckled. “Does he have to be
“Well, the older the better. We are not much
human after all. Humans want to be younger
because it means beauty, strength and
health, but demons want to be older, almost
for the same reason. The older ones are
more attractive and powerful. Age means a
different thing for us, and you have got
yourself the best of them all. She
Heaven shook her head. I hope you find
someone who truly loves you rather than
just a strong demon.
“Of course.” Gina said, “Lets just hope he is
not too young. He has to be at least 300
Heaven smiled, not surprised by Gina’s
remark. Human females married males ten
or fifteen years older than them, while
demon females mated with males five
hundred or a thousand years older than
them. But demons were fascinating. The
roles could be reversed. Males mating with a
demon female who was a thousand years
older than them. Demons were less
judgmental of age and gender, which she
liked. Being a human female meant nothing
They were only a property to be traded and
“How is Zarin?” Heaven asked, knowing that
Gina must already know by now.
“He isn’t talking to anyone, but he will come
around. She smiled.
Heaven nodded thoughtfully. She wasn’t
sure if he would come around this time, and
even if he did, would it be the same? She
didn’t think so.
“Will you come later? I would like you to
meet Zamiel. Heaven said.
It was hard to ask, since he hurt her, but if
she was going to be with him for the rest of
her life, they would meet sooner or later.
“Of course.” Gina smiled.
Heaven spent the rest of her day feeling a
bit nervous. Her stomach tingled strangely.
She really wanted her mother to like Zamiel.
Not just approve of him. She wanted Zamiel
to feel as if he was a part of her family once
they got married.
Meanwhile, she also waited for Ilyas, hoping
he would come back with beneficial
information, but the evening was close and
he hadn’t returned yet. Maybe he found
nothing, and she had to come up with
Zamiel would probably arrive soon, So
Heaven went to her room to prepare
herself. She wanted to look good. She put
effort into choosing a dress and borrowed
Ylva to make her hair.
You look nervous, My Lady. She
“I am. She stood up. Do I lookgood
You look beautiful as always. Ylva smiled.
Thank you She gave her a hug,
Ylva thought it was inappropriate, like
always. You never listen, just ike your
mother. She complained.
Heaven just gave her a smile and left the
room. When she came to the hall, she found
maids and servants gathered.
“What is happening? Ylva asked who
followed her, but then someone caught her
Heaven turned her head and found Zamiel
walking from afar.
Everyone gathered around him, eyes wide
and mouth open in awe. Even she found
This time, unlike the previous one, he had
dressed to impress, wearing what looked
like expensive clothing adorned with a silver
that matched his eyes. The sight of him
made everyone around him lose track of
their thoughts. Despite the sharp lines and
edges of his beautiful face, he had a natural
expression, sometimes followed by a weak
smile when people blushed at the sight of
him. He was very well aware of all the
surrounding attention, but he was modest
about it, Even the male servants stared, and
one look made them all flush red.
A maid holding a tray came across him and
stumbled on her feet when she caught sight
of him. She fell, dropping everything in her
hands. Zamiel was startled for a moment
before he offered his help.
“Are you alright?” He asked and offering her
Heaven felt a sting in her heart when the
maid placed her hand in his and he helped
her up. The maid couldn’t tear her gaze
away from his face, and her face flushed all
shades of red. Heaven shouldn’t blame her.
Ancients had extremely good looks and a
Zamiel almost had to pull his hand away
from hers because she wasnt letting go. He
gave her a weak smile and proceeded. The
maid watched him as he walked away, and
others kept sighing as if the sight of him
alone was satisiying.
“Is that him? Ylva whispered.
When he came close enough, he smiled at
her. Your highness. He said taking her
hand and kissing her knuckles. Heaven felt
What was this? It is not like he kissed her
for the first time.
When he dropped her hand, she could still
feel his hot lips on her skin.
I am glad you came.” She smiled, trying not
to expose the way he affected her. “Come”
She showed him the way to the dining room
where he would meet her mother.
Her mother was already waiting and stood
up when they walked in. She approached
him with a smile.
“Your Majes… Before he could finish the
word, her mother slapped him across the
What could be the reason for the sudden slap ?
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 56
Heaven gasped in shock. The sound of the
slap echoed in her ears. Before she could
recover, her mother slapped him again, on
the other cheek. Now, her body froze
completely. Why wasn’t she doing anything?
She looked at Zamiel, but he didn’t seem the
least surprised. He stood there calmly,
looking like he was waiting to get slapped
again. But her mother seemed to be
One was for hurting my daughter and the
other for hurting my husband.” She
explained. Your are welcome.
Zamiel gave her a faint smile, then reached
out his hand. Her mother placed her hand in
his and he kissed her knuckles. “It’s a
pleasure meeting you, Your Majesty.” He
said then dropped her hand.
“Please sit.” Her mother motioned toward
the table. Zamiel made his way to the table
and pulled a chair out for her mother first. She thanked
him with a smiled and sat down. Then he
pulled a chair out for Heaven but she still
“Heaven?” Her mother called.
“Yes, Heaven forced her body to move and
went to sit down. She looked at Zamiel to
see if he was alright, and he gave her a

and left. Her mother made sure they were
completely alone, no servant and no guards.
This made Heaven nervous.
“I know what happened to you and why you
behaved the way you did. But as a mother,
the most difficult thing is to see your child
hurt. I think you know better than anyone.”
Zamiel nodded. “I do.”
“I want to make sure she is with someone
who will love and cherish her. Someone who
will protect her from any harm. Her
“I love her selflessly, cherish her endlessly
and protect her fearlessly.” He said and then
turned to Heaven. He looked her in the
eyes. “I will share her happiness and her
Heaven felt suddenly emotional. She fought
back the tears that threatened to fill her
eyes and smiled at him instead.
“Heaven, why don’t you leave me and Zamiel
alone for a moment? Her mother asked.
Heaven panicked. Was something wrong?
Did she not like him?
She looked at her mother and gave her a
look, telling her to be nice before leaving.
She waited outside, walking back and forth
in the hall. What were they talking about?
Was her mother scolding him?
Unable to contain herself after a while, she
went to the door and placed her ear against
it. She knew she shouldn’t but she couldn’t
Despite the thickness of the door, thanks to
her supernatural hearing, she was able to
hear her mother talk.
“What do you like about my daughter?” She
asked. She is young and not as experienced
or as wise as you.”
“It is true that we gain wisdom and
experience with age, but it is not your
daughter’s wisdom or experience that
makes me love her. It is her kindness, her
Courage and her will to live and learn. I
might have more experience, but your
daughter taught me more than what I have
Heaven took a step back from the door. She
didn’t know why, but for some reason she
walked away. Maybe because she realized
she didn’t have to worry. Zamiel was
handling it well, and she should trust both
him and her mother.
She went to her room and sat down with a
lot of thoughts in her head. His words made
Zamiel she thought of his name.
How could she have found such a man? How
could he make her feel more loved for each
day? His words imprinted in mind, and it
felt like her heart would burst in joy. She
was lucky and she would never regret that
she released him from his prison because
eventually she released him for her own.
Kate walked inside after a knock on the
door. “My Lady, I saw you leaving the dining
room. Won’t you eat dinner? Do you want
me to serve it here?
I’ll eat later Heaven said.
Kate nodded. “My Lady, if I may ask. The
man who came here, 1is he to be your future
Heaven smiled.That is the plan.
Kate frowned. “Then I should tell everyone
to speak of him in a respectful manner. The
maids are saying…. things.”
Heaven could already guess what things
they were saying. She had heard them
gossip about her father so many times
before, and sometimes even heard them say
things she shouldn’t have heard. She
couldn’t let herself get upset by these
“Don’t let it bother you.” She told Kate, but
she was already bothered herself.
Now she would know how her mother felt
all those years, having females throwing
themselves at her husband.
After Kate left, Heaven waited patiently,
trying to occupy her mind with other
things, but she kept seeing the handsome
man that came to meet her mother today.
There was something different about him.
Or was it just because she hadn’t seen him
dressed this nicely before?
How could this man appear more beautiful
to her for each day that passed by?
When she thought she waited enough, she
went back to the dining room. Now the
door was open, and she was surprised to
find her mother and Zamiel chattering
Heaven walked inside as she listened to
“She was so stubborn. She would always
complain about wearing dresses and wanted
to wear trousers. She once cut her own
hair. It looked horrible. Her mother
Zamiel had a smile on his face as he listened
intently. Heaven was disturbed. She didn’t
want her mother to tell Zamiel these
embarrassing stories about her
“Oh Heaven. Here you are. Your father is
coming, we will eat dinner soon
Heaven sat down surprised, and her mother
wanted to continue telling her story.
“Mother, please.” She cut off.
Her mother chuckled. “Alright, alright. I
have already told him enough. She teased.
Shortly after, her father walked in. All of
them stood up and Zamiel greeted him
“Please sit.” Her father said.
“I was just telling Zamiel embarrassing
stories about Heaven. Her mother
“Then I shall continue.” Her father teased.
Why was she being mocked by everyone?
“No father, please. Heaven begged.
He clapped her on the shoulder to assure
her he Wouldn’t.
“Zamiel, I have heard that you have set up a
trade in town?
He did? When?
Yes, Your majesty. You are welcome to
visit.” Zamiel replied and so they started
talking about trades, prices, markets and
other things she couldn’t understand while
they ate dinner.
Heaven was just happy they were getting
along, and there seemed to be some kind of
understanding between them. Their
conversation flowed naturally and Heaven
found herself staring at the two men she
loved the most in the World.
After a while, when dessert was served, her
mother took her aside and they went to
“Let the men speak alone. She said.
They went to the parlor and sat down.
Heaven was curious to know what her
mother’s impression of Zamiel was.
“Mother, what do you think of him?
Her mother smiled gently. I can see why
you like him. He seems calm, gentle and
mature, and he reminds me a lot of your
Heaven was happy to hear that.
“Mother, I want to marry him. Heaven said
not hiding how she felt.
Her mother chuckled. “I know. Take your
time. Don’t rush it. She advised.
Heaven was relieved that everything went
alright and both her parents seemed to like
Zamiel. They told him to come and visit
again before saying goodbye.
With a smile, Heaven went back to her
room. She knew Zamiel didn’t go back
home. He must be waiting for her there.
Walking inside, she found him sitting on her
sofa. He looked up at her and then
motioned for her to come and sit next to
Heaven’s heart raced for some unknown
reason as she obeyed him. She sat beside
him while keeping a little distance between
them. His scent filled the space in her room
and invaded her senses. What was wrong
with her today?
gnoring her emotions, she turned to him. “I
am sorry about my mother’s behavior
Don’t be sorry. lt was the least she could
do. She was very kind to me. He assured,
looking at her with his smoldering silver
They seemed more silver than before, or
was it just her eyes
“Yes, she is very kind. People think I am
closer to my father because I bother him
and confide in him more, but that is only
because I am protective of my mother, My
mother is my weakness. It pains me to see
her sad. She explained.
She wanted Zamiel to know how important
her mother was to her.
Zamiel nodded. “I understand. He said,
Looking at her in a way that made her
is something wrong? She asked when
he kept staring
No. you look perfect.” He said.
Heaven’s breath caught in her throat from
the way he looked at her as he said those
words. It was almost as if she hypnotized
Thank you.” She said as her cheeks burned.
Did she put too much effort into lookinng
good? Maybe she overdid it.
He reached for her face, his cold fingers
sliding over her burning cheeks until they
reached her lips. His gaze followed his
fingers. Heaven held her breath as he leaned
in and then captured her lips with his. She
closed her eyes as his hot mouth moved
over hers, slowly waking the demons inside
of her. Heaven was stil, trying to remind
herself to not lose control, but it was almost
impossible. He was awakening every nerve
in her body. Her senses immediately
reacted to touch and to his scent.
Just when she couldn’t control herself
anymore, he pulled back, leaving her feeling
lightheaded. She took a few shaky breaths,
but not enough to calm down before he
kissed her again. Heaven was lost in a
pleasure she hadn’t known before. Heat
Consumed her, yet she shivered when she
felt his fingers trail down her neck. The hot
and cold provoked her, but Zamiel pulled
away in time again.
If he kissed her yet again, her heart
wouldn’t survive. It was already drumnming
in her ears. Yet the emptiness that followed
when he stopped made her want to die.
Zamiel turned away from her quickly. She
had provoked his demon, just like he had
provoked hers. She could see it from his
clenched jaw that he had been close to lose
Both of them sat quietly for a moment,
trying to calm down, but Heaven couldn’t
stop her beating heart.
Suddenly it felt hot inside the room. There
was no air to breathe. Heaven stood up and
went to open the door that led to the
garden. She stepped outside and inhaled the
cold air. Zamiel was right behind her and
they stood there in silence to cool off.
“Heaven. He finally spoke.
“I should go home. If I breath in your scent
one more time, I might not behave
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 57
Heaven lay in bed trying to sleep, but her
heart was still racing. No matter what she
did, she couldn’t calm down. Despite having
windows open, she still felt hot. Even Gina
had heard her wildly beating heart when she
came right after Zamiel left.
She had pointed that her cheeks were red,
then teased her about doing the
“I didn’t.” Heaven had said. “It was only a
kiss.” The most tender kiss, yet it had left her
feeling this way. Unable to think of anything
else or sleep. After turning back and forth
for what seemed like forever, she could
finally fall asleep.
But even in her dreams, Zamiel was there to
stir up her emotions. He appeared from the
shadows and slowly stalked toward her bed.
He loomed over her, his silver eyes gleaming
with desire. He slowly crawled into her bed,
under the covers. Heaven’s heart was
beating erratically as she felt his icy fingers
on her skin. In her dream, he was not
holding back and his hands reached every
part of her body, igniting flames along the
way. When his fingers reached her neck, she
saw his fangs glistening in the dark. The
sharpness of the tips made her nervous.
Zamiel’s lips curved into a wicked smile
before he leaned down and buried his fangs
in her flesh.
Heaven shot her eyes open with a gasp. She
blinked a few times while staring at the
ceiling. It was only a dream, yet it had felt so
real. Her heart was still beating and her
body acting strangely.
She shook her head. These dreams and
thoughts were forbidden. She shouldn’t
dwell on them. Pushing the dream to the
back of her mind, she went on to get
prepared for the day. Today was the day she
would travel to Valish. But then she
remembered that she forgot to ask Zamiel did
Ilyas came to see her they had decided to
meet at Zamiel’s home.
Thinking of going to Zamiel made her heart
race again. Something was wrong with her
It wouldn’t be the first time she went to his
home, so why was she acting like this?
While it was still early in the morning, she
had to visit him and see if Ilyas had found
any information that could be useful. But if
he didn’t, what was she supposed to do
She shook her head. There was no need to
worry about it before knowing for sure.
Heaven teleported herself to Zamiel’s home.
She was surprised to smell the scent of food
and tea as she walked through the halls.
When she came to the parlor, she found a
maid serving tea. The old woman didn’t
seem surprised to see her.
“Are you Lady Heaven? She asked.
Heaven nodded. But who was she? Heaven
could tell she was human.
“Lord Zamiel is upstairs.” She informed.
“Thank you. Heaven said and made her way
She proceeded to Zamiel’s room. The door
was open, so she peeked inside. He wvas
nowhere to be seen. Heaven walked in and
looked around. Her gaze fell on his bed and
her dreams from last night came back to
mind. The way he had touched her and she
let him. She had even enjoyed it.
Admitting that to herself made her cheeks
burn, and she turned around hastily to leave
but walked right into his arms. A gasp left
Zamiel Wrapped his strong arms around her
and smiled. “Good morning”
Heaven stiffened. Her heart stopped as she
found his face close to hers. She could tell
that he just bathed by his fresh scent and
his wet hair. A few wet strands hung over
his face and few water drops dripped from
them. Heaven looked at his thick wet lashes,
then his smoldering silver eyes, then his…
lips. Suddenly she felt lightheaded. Why?
Zamiel chuckled, “you need to breathe. He
Yes, she wasn’t breathing. That’s why.
She let out a deep breath and pushed
herself away from his arms. How could she
think clearly otherwise?
Zamiel narrowed his gaze, probably
wondering why she was acting strange.
Heaven cleared her throat. “Good morning
He ran his fingers through his hair to
remove the wet strands from his face
before looking at her again. The gesture
made her heart skip a beat. Did you sleep
well? He asked. Yes. Why was she running
away? Was she so scared of herself? Even
now she took a step back, but the wall behind
her stopped her from going any further.
Heaven remembered her dreanm again and
her cheeks flushed. She turned away so he
couldn’t see her and walked to the window,
pretending to look outside, “yes. What
about you?” She asked.
Suddenly he was right behind her. “I
couldn’t sleep. I kept thinking about you.
He said, his voice feeling like a soft caress
on her back. Her eyes darted nervously as
she felt him come even closer.
Heaven stood still. She didn’t know how to
reply to that. “Heaven.
She closed her eyes as he called her name.
He was hypnotizing her, and she couldn’t
resist. She turned to him, her body obeying
him more than her. She told herself to not
look into his eyes, but he grabbed her chin
and turned her head up. Now, it was too
late. She was already gazing into them.
“Why do I feel that you are running away
from me now?” He asked.
“I don’t want to torture you. She said but
truth was, he was the one torturing her.
“I would rather be tortured by your
presence than your absence.” He said
leaning closer to her.
“Wait!” Heaven said, putting her hands on
his chest to stop him. Zamiel stilled.
“I don’t want to hurt you. She said.
Today she had no control. She didn’t want
to hurt him more than before.
“I won’t let you.”
He grabbed her wrists and pinned her
hands on the wall above her head before
claiming her lips with his. There was
nothing gentle about the way he kissed her
this time, about the way his lips spoke yes
against her. Telling her a tale of passion and
Craving Leaving her body and soul at his
mercy, And when he released her, she let
herself fall into his arms. Her legs unable to
Zamiel carried her up and lay her down on
his bed. Heaven felt the taste of blood in her
mouth and when she looked at him he had
two small cuts on his lips. Not as bad as the
previous ones, but still awful to look at
knowing she was the cause
Sitting beside her, he reached for her face.
Soothing her burning cheeks with his cold
“I wish I could heal you than hurt you. She
said.”Heaven, you are the cause and the cure to
my pain.” He said. “You are my everything”
His words warmed her heart, and she
reached for his face. “I love you, Zamiel. She
said. I love you too.” He smiled.
Zamiel offered her to stay over for breakfast
and Heaven agreed. There was something
strange but exciting at the same time to eat
breakfast with him at his home. It was
almost like they were already married and
After they were done eating, Ilyas finally
showed up. Heaven felt nervous, hoping he
had good news for her.
“My lady, I don’t know if this will be
beneficial to you, but I found out that King
Rufus likes men.
Heaven frowned where she sat and then
turned to Zamiel, who was sitting calmnly
next to her.
“What do you mean he likes men? Heaven
said turning back to llyas.
Ilyas’ gaze shifted to Zamiel before looking
back at her. “I mean, he desires not only
women, but men as well.
Heaven blinked a few times. Was that
possible? A man desiring a man.
She looked at Zamiel questioningly. He
Smiled at her reaction. “No king would want
such rumors spreading about him. You can
use that against him.” He said.
“Some of them are very young. Not even
men yet. He exploits boys.” Ilyas
“Why?” Was all Heaven managed to ask.
llyas just looked at her for a while. “I don’t
know. He said.
Heaven would have to think about it during
the journey, but now she had to hurry back
home. She gave Ilyas the necklace and
explained to him how it worked. When
teleporting, he would only need to hold it
and he would know where she was. If the
necklace glowed, then it meant that she
wanted to meet him. Ilyas nodded and left.
Now she had to go back home before
people noticed that she was missing
“Do you have to go now? Zamiel asked.
“How long will you be gone? He asked.
Valish was a neighbor kingdom, so the travel
would take four to five days. Then it would
depend on how long she stayed there.
“Maybe two weeks.” She told.
She wanted to ask if he would come to see
her, but refrained from doing so. She
wanted him to see her as a mature woman
who focused on her mission.
Zamiel kissed her goodbye, and then she
hurried back to the castle. Callum already
had everything under control. The men
their horses anda carriage were already
prepared. Kate had already packed both
their clothes and was ready to come with
Just when she was about to step into the
carriage, someone called her name.
When she turned around, she found Zarin
standing behind her.
She didn’t expect to see him so soon. What
was he doing here?
What a suprise visit.
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 58
Zarin couldn’t stop thinking of what his
father told him. Yes, he had to do something
with his love and not just keep it in his
heart. But what was he supposed to do?
What did a woman want from a man?
No woman had ever denied him before, so
how was he supposed to know? He thought
back of what Heaven told him. She said she
liked Zanmiel because he set her free. He
could that for her now as well. She told him
that Zamiel saw the woman she could be,
then he was ready to let go of his childhood
friend. If it was support she needed, then he
would show his support. He would help her
become a ruler, and this time he would
apologize first, and not let her be the one to
wait for him anymore.
What else did he have to do?
He had to make sure that Zamiel wasn’t
tricking her. He did not trust that man.
There was just something he didn’t like
about him. He would find his weakness.
Zarin teleported himself to where he
expected to find his father. He didn’t only
end up finding him, but his uncle Rasmus as
well. Usually they were the ones to visit his
uncle, so he was surprised to see him
“Zarin, come here.” His uncle said.
His uncle Rasmus was human, but acted
nothing less than a demon. Zarin had never
met a human male tougher than his uncle.
While he was young, he had heard the
rumors about him. They called him the
bloodthirsty king. The first king to establish
a kingdom all on his own at such a young
age. He was afraid of nothing. His mother
had even told them once that he just
laughed when she told him about them
being demons. He was an impressive man.
Standing up, his uncle gave him a hug
You have grown up so much. He said, and
they sat down.
Thank you. Zarin smiled.
Something about his uncle always made him
nervous. The man liked to speak in riddles
and seemed to always know more than what
And handsome at that. Have you found a
woman?” His uncle asked.
He was also straightforward, and now Zarin
didn’t know what to reply. His father sipped
whatever that was in his glass, amused.
“Don’t lie to me, boy.” His uncle warned
jokingly when he noticed his hesitation.
You can’t have difficulty finding a woman.
That is your father’s and my specialty after
Both his father and his uncle chuckled.
Zarin couldn’t help but smile at how much
the two men resembled each other. Both
had a sarcastic humor. I know it might not
feel comfortable to ask your father for advice
when it comes to women, but you can ask me. Rasmus
Yes. He did not feel comfortable speaking to
his father about women. But maybe he
could speak to his uncle. There was too
much of a generation gap between him and
his father, so he knew his uncle would
understand him better.
Later, when he found his uncle alone, he
took him aside.
“It is a woman.” His uncle smiled
“It is not just any woman. She is the
daughter of the Lucian.” Zarin explained.
“I see.” His uncle said. “It seems like our
family are attracted to that family”
“What do you mean?” Zarin asked.
“Never mind. Tell me about this girl. What is
Zarin felt a little embarrassed but decided
to tell his uncle. “I confessed my love to her
and she.. rejected me. I.I want to win her
back, but I don’t know how He
His uncle was thoughtful for a while. “If you
want to win her, you have to know how to
win her. Women like confident men.
Zarin nodded. Was that all the help he would
“Love is all about emotions. The way a
woman responds to you depends on the
way you make her feel. If you make her feel
loved, safe, secure and special, she will
respond to those feelings.” His uncle
“But that is the problem. I thought I made
her feel that way.” Zarin said.
If you want to Win a woman’s heart, you
have to know what her heart desires and
provide that for her. Not provide her with
what you think she wants. Maybe the way
you showed her love was not the way she
wanted to be loved.
Zarin was frustrated. “Why does love have
to be so complicated? He asked. “Isn’t it
enough to just love someone?”
His uncle chuckled. “Good things in life
don’t come easily. Love is not easy. Love
needs time, effort, patience, understanding
and courage. Love is a war. You need to
know when to draw your Sword and when
to use your shield.”
From his uncle’s explanation, love was
definitely not easy. What was he supposed
to do now? Go to war? He was still
“I am telling you to be observant. To win her
heart, you have to know when to fight for
her and when to fight with her.” Rasmus
For the rest of the day, Zarin thought
carefully of what his uncle told him. To fight
for her and to fight with her. He would do
both. She was going on a trip to prove her
capability. He would go with her and fight
with her. He would support her.
And when fighting for her, he would find out
Zamiel’s weakness. He didn’t have a good
feeling about that ancient demon. He had a
hard time believing that Zamiel truly loved
Heaven and did all those things Heaven
claimed he did for her.
The ancient demon was probably only
interested in her beauty. Zarin had never
met a woman more beautiful than Heaven,
so he wouldn’t be surprised if Zamiel only
wanted to use her. That way he could also
have his revenge on a witch. Witches had
killed his family, after all. Zarin had a hard
time believing that the vengeful demon just
abandon his vengeance.
Zamiel woke up sweating and panting His
body was burning with fury. He had that
same nightmare again where Heaven killed
his family. It felt so real that when he woke
up he needed a moment to come back to
reality. Heaven would never do that to him,
but he couldn’t deny that the dream was
still disturbing. Why Heaven? lt pained
He had to find a way to get rid of these
nightmares. He was afraid of harming
Heaven, of losing her. Last time he had the
nightmare, he was close to hurting her. He
had no control over himself when he woke
up from these horrible dreams.
His maid Helen had already prepared
breakfast when he went to the dining room.
He gulped a glass of water to cool himself
down first. After finishing his breakfast,
Helen informed him he had a visitor.
You can always let Heaven in.” He told

“It is not Lady Heaven. It is another young
Young lady? Zamiel didn’t have any visitors
at all. Where did this young lady come
Let her in” He said
Zamiel sensed that she was human before
she entered the dining room. She was
Wrapped in a blue cloak and stalked to
where he sat.
“My Lord” She curtsied.
Zamiel looked at the woman in front of him.
She was a young Lady in her early twenties.
A beautiful woman, probably desired by
many men, with her long wavy brown hair
and blue eyes. She had a radiant skin with
light freckles around her nose and
heart-shaped lips that curved into a
“What brings you here?” Zamiel asked.
“I am Rose, my Lord, but you can call me
anything you like. I am here to please
The woman opened the straps on her cloak
and removed it from her shoulders. She was
left wearing a thin dress that barely covered
Zamiel tilted his head to one
“And who sent you to please me?
“My owiner.” She said. “I know nothing more,
Zamiel took the freedom to get inside her
head. She wasn’t lying. He saw her owner
giving her orders to come here and please
him. But her owner must have been paid by
Someone to her here.
Zamiel couldn’t think of anyone else doing
this except for Zarin. The boy baffled him.
At least he tried to hide that it was him, but
this boy clearly underestimated him. What
was he trying to do? The boy was going too
far now, and Zamiel had already let him get
away a few times. But not anymore. Now he had
“Are you not pleased with me, My
Lord? Rose asked when he said nothing for
“I am very pleased.” He told her. “Please, get
Rosa was about to remove her dress when
she realized what he said. Her eyes
widened. She was questioning whether she
heard him right about getting dressed and
He motioned for her to pick up her cloak, to
assure that she understood him correctly.
Rose picked up her cloak and covered
herself slowly. He could see the confusion in
her eyes. She got even more confused when
he paid her a generous amount
She stared at the golden coins. “This is a lot,
my Lord. I have done nothing” She told him.
“I was very pleased, so you deserve it. He
If Zarin wanted to play games, then Zamiel
would play along. He realized at this point
the boy would not believe him or give up,
unless he was taught a lesson. Zamniel would
gladly be a good teacher.
The battle line has been drawn.
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 59
Kirnan materialized in the room just as Rose
left. Kirnan was one of the few demons
Working for him. Zamiel went and freed him
from his Lord to take him under his wing
He was a clever demon, and Zamiel needed
loyal and clever men by his side. Kirnon
helped him with all kinds of matters. He
specially looked out for his enemies and
knew about anyone who came near his
“My Lord. You called for me.” He said.
Yes. I want you to take care of the trade on
your own today. I will be busy with other
Kirnan nodded. “Is it the woman? Do you
want me to find out anything about her?
There is no need.” Zamiel said.
No demon would be foolish enough to come
up with such a plan, knowing very well that
he was ancient and could easily figure out
who it was. No demons would be stupid
enough to think a woman sent by a stranger
would simply entice him. To think that a
woman could actually be his weakness. That
would mean humiliating and
underestimating him. Only someone with a
weakness for women would think that it
would also be his weakness. Only someone
reckless would get on his bad side. Knowing
Zarin surrounded himself with woman and
seen his reckless behavior a few times, he
was the first suspect.
But time would tell, and patience was
Zamiel’s strengtlh. He had already read
Rose’s mind. She had a reputation to
uphold. She was the most sought out and
highest paid prostitute. No man had ever
denied her before, so she had no intention
of going back and telling the truth She was
even thinking of bragging about how mnuch
money she got because she pleased him so
He didn’t have to do anything now. He
would just let her do her thing. if it was
Zarin, which he was sure of, he would dig
his own grave.
His only concern was Heaven. He didn’t
want to hurt her feelings, but it was
inevitable if Zarin continued with his trash
The nightmares did also concern him. He
didn’t always have them. Something had
changed. What could it be? Were his dreams
telling him something?
Witches were good at interpreting dreams.
Maybe he needed to see one. But no witch
would help him except for Irene. He didn’t
want to tell her that her granddaughter
killed his family in his dreanms. That might
make her concerned. But this was about
Heaven’s safety, and he had to find the root
of these nightmares so he would know how
to get rid of them After brooding over it,
Zamiel decided to see lrene.
He teleported himself to her
house and stood outside for a while,
contemplating on whether it was a good
Irene must have sensed his presence, so she
“Zamiel, what a surprise. Come in.” She said
and walked in without waiting for him.
Hesitantly, Zamiel followed her inside. Her
house smelled of roses and herbs, and
everywhere he looked there was a sign of
life. Plants, birds in cages, a cat.
“I know. I love animals and plants. She
smiled when she saw him look around.
“It shows.” He said now looking at the
paintings that hung on the wall. They were
colorful. He got the impression that she was
someone who loved life. She reminded him
Irene led him to the livingroom and asked
him to sit down. Would you like tea or
“I am alright, thank you He said.
She sat down. “I am surprised you could find
“You found out everything about my
previous life. Finding your home was easy.
She nodded with a smile. “Of course. What
bring you here?”
“I need help to interpret my dream.” He
She nodded for him to continue.
Zamiel didn’t want to do this, but he had to.
“I have been having nightmares where
Heaven kills my family. He said quickly, as if
the words alone hurt him.
Irene looked at him thoughtfully. He
wondered what she was thinking, but he
couldn’t get inside her head. As expected
from a powerful witch.
“Is that all you see? She asked.
“Yes He replied
“Does the dream feel strange somehow?
Does it differ from your other dreams?”
“Yes. It feels strange that I can remember
every detail when I wake up and it is the
same dream every time. It might sound
strange, but I have the feeling that the
dream was purposely put in my head.”
“It does not sound strange. I think someone
is manipulating your dreams and know
who it might be. Heaven’s grandfather.”
Zamiel had almost forgotten about the
“Lucifer is the master of manipulation. That
is his power, and he plays with weakness.
You family is your weakness. You are still
mourning their death and you haven’t let go
of the pain and guilt yet. If you don’t let go
of that weakness, he will use it against you
and you might end up doing something you
If Zamiel didn’t know better, he would rush
to Lucifer and threaten him. But the devil
had nothing to fear, not even death. He was
guaranteed to exist as long as life existed on
“What does he want exactly?” Zamiel asked.
He knew it was not about him. It was about
Heaven, and he probably wanted her to join
him to misguide people.
“I don’t know exactly what he wants to
achieve with your nightmares, but he wants
Heaven. He wants her to rule one of the five
kingdoms in the underworld. His son Ozul
The five kingdoms were ruled by the devil’s
children. He was not lucky when it came to
offsprings. He only had a few, and not all of
them were fit to be leaders.
Four kingdoms were ruled by his sons and
one by his daughter. If his son Ozul died,
then he was looking for a replacement
Unfortunately, none of his children would

on. That is the only way you can protect
yourself from him.”

Heaven was surprised to see Zarin. What
was he doing here?
She walked up to him. “Zarin, what brings
“I have been thinking and… I realized that I
haven’t been a good friend. I know this
mission is important for you. I just want to
be there for you this time and support you.
“I am sorry, Zarin, but I can’t take you with
me. I need to do this alone. It won’t be
impressive if I take a man with me. It will
make me look weak. I am only taking many
guards with me. She explained.
Then I will follow you as your guard. He
Heaven knew he wouldn’t stop insisting
Alright then She said turning to Oliver
Oliver please bring more suitable clothes
for Zarin so he looks like every other guard.
Provide him with a horse as well.
Zarin looked at her, confused. “I can just
teleport there” He whispered.
“If you want to follow me as my guard,
follow me like every other guard.” She told
There was no simple way out. He had to
learn that supporting someone wasn’t
Heaven turned around and got inside the
carriage with Kate before they rode away.
Yes, Your Highness.
Heaven didn’t know how to ask. “What does
it mean exactly that a man likes a man?
Was it the same as a man liking a woman?
How did arelationship like that work?
there were so many things she was curious
about, but she had felt embarrassed to ask
Zamiel and ilyas about details.
“It is forbidden and punishable by death.”
Kate said simply.
It seemed like the act was condemned and
not liked by society. But why would
someone be killed for liking someone
Heaven didn’t feel good about this. She still
had a lot to learn about society. Since she
didn’t know much, she didn’t feel good
about using something she did not know of
against someone else. Especially if the
punishment was severe.
But something else disturbed her. Why did
Ilyas use the word exploit and why is the
King using young boys? If he liked men,
shouldn’t he just be with the man he liked?
How old were the boys? Heaven forgot to
ask that question. Later at night, when they
stopped to rest, she would call Ilyas.
She had to know more about King Rufus
When the sun went down and the sky
turned black, they stopped to eat and rest
for a while.
Zarin looked bored and tired,
but smiled at her when he caught her
looking at him.
Heaven excused herself, saying she needed
to take care of her human needs in private.
They understood that she wanted to
Urinate. Kate offered to follow her, but
Leaving on her own, she went into the
woods and further into the darkness. Then
she used her bracelet to call Ilyas. He
appeared in an instant.
“Lady Heaven.” He bowed.
“Ilyas, I don’t feel right about using the
information you gave me against the king.

“Nor should you. You should condemn him
because of his actions. This man does not
simply like men or women. He is using
them. He is ruining the lives of young boys,
and even young girls. But you can’t use the
young girls against him since people don’t
find that to be wrong, but you can use the
boys against him. He deserves to be
punished, but I won’t tell you what to do. I
know punishing him might not benefit
If he was ruining lives, more than her
benefits, she should save the young boys
and girls. But that might bring war, and her
father hated war. What was she supposed to
If she can save them, then she will, even
though she didn’t know how yet. As long as
he was king, he could get himself new boys
and girls. The only way to solve the problem
for good was to take over the Kingdom. Not
the mission she came for or was prepared
llyas noticed her worry “My Lady, just go
there and meet him. Then follow your own
judgement. I will be there to support you
Thank you. She told him and hurried back
before they started wondering where she
Halfway back, she was surprised to find
Zarin. “Are you alright? It felt like someone
else was here.” He said looking around.
“I am fine.” She shrugged. “I saw no one.
Zarin was suspicious and kept looking
“Lets go back.” She told him to distract him.
They went back and slept for the rest of the
night. As soon as the sun rised, they
Continued with their journey.
During the rest of the journey, Heaven felt
nervous. She thought of many ideas and
ways to help the young boys and girls
without creating trouble, but she couldn’t
find a good solution, and when they reached
their destination, Heaven felt sick to her
As usual, they took away her guard’s
Weapons before they could enter. Then she
was taken to a guest room. “His Majesty will
meet you tonight. A guard infornmed. “Make
Comfortable? She was so nervous she
thought she would vomit. She couldn’t even
eat the food that was served.
My Lady, are you alright?” Kate asked.
Did it show? She needed to get her act
together. She couldn’t afford to show
“I am fine. She assured.
Heaven decided to rest for a while before
she could meet the king. Maybe with a
rested mind she could think clearly. She got
into bed and closed her eyes. Eventually she
fell into a deep slumber
Something felt strange when she woke up
and opened her eyes. She looked to her left,
just to find Zamiel sleeping next to her
What was he doing here? Heart pounding.
slowly her hand reached under her pillow
She had hidden the dagger that Roshan gave
her there. Grasping it, she slowly took it
out. Sitting up carefully to not wake him up,
she placed the tip of the dagger on his
throat, right above his collarbone.
She had to finish the task before he woke
up, so she pulled the dagger back and
stabbed him in the throat.
Shocked, she pulled her hand away when
Zamiel shot his eyes open. He reached for
the dagger and pulled it out of his throat.
Blood squirted out from the wound and he
looked at her with eyes pained by the
I am sorry. She said, tears filling her
Her shaking hands tried to cover his wound
quickly, to stop the bleeding What has she

While tears streamed from her eyes, she
called for help. She screamed for help.
Somebody should tell me what is happening?
