The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 61
“Heaven!” Someone shook her gently.
Heaven shot her eyes open and the first
thing she saw was a pair of silver eyes. She
didn’t know why she reacted by Screaming,
but Zamiel was quick to cover her mouth
with his hand.
“It is only me” He assured her calmly.
She stared at him with wide eyed, her heart
pounding painfully inside her chest.
It was only a bad dream. He whispered.
Yes. It was only a dream. He was fine.
Just when he removed his hand, Kate and
her guards barged into the room. Heaven
sat up and Zamiel turned to the door.
Callum and Oliver were ready to fight but
looked confused when saw Zamiel. Kate on
the other hand was shocked. When she saw
Zamiel sitting next to her on the bed, her
“Everything is alright and princess Heaven is
safe. You can go back.” Zamiel said, using a
Suddenly their expression changed. They
looked like they had seen nothing. Turning
around, they left without a word.
Zamiel turned back to her, looking
concerned. “Are you alright?” He asked,
Cupping her cheek.
Heaven jumped up and hugged him before
sobbing in his arms. She never thought it
was only a dream. The warm blood against
her fingers as she tried to stop the bleeding
and his pained eyes had felt so real. She had
truly believed that she stabbed him. She
feared that she had lost him.
Zamiel Wrapped his arms around her and
stroke her back gently until she calmed
down. Heaven pulled away from his hold
and wiped her tears away. Her hair waas
Soaked in sweat.
“What did you see that frightens you so?
Heaven took a deep breath to calm down.
She wanted to tell him about her nightmare,
but she felt bad even having it. She could
hurt him, but she didn’t want him to think
even for a moment that she had any
intention of doing so.
“Zamiel. Do you trust me?” She asked.
“More than myself. He said, stroking her
cheek. “And I want you to trust yourself.”
Heaven nodded. “I am alright now.” She
assured him. “I didn’t know you would come
to see me.
He gave her a meek smile. “I told myself to
stay away. I didn’t mean to intrude. I was
She didn’t mind the intrusion, but he was
definitely a distraction. With him, she just
wanted to be comfortable and let him take
care of her. But she couldn’t keep crying
Duties were awaiting.
I should prepare to meet the king” She told
He gave her a nod, and Heaven pushed
herself out of bed. “I need to get dressed.
She said turning around. She expected
Zamiel to say that he would leave, but he
just sat there and stared at her.
Do you want me to help you? He asked at
Heaven was surprised. She tried to read his
expression to know if he was being playful
or serious, but his face gave nothing away.
“I don’t think you can handle a dress.” She
told him. “It is more complicated than
He chuckled. “I am sure. I leave you alone
One moment he was sitting on the bed and
the next he was standing in front of her. He
leaned in and gave her a quick kiss.
“Goodbye.” He smiled before he vanished.
As always, Heaven felt the small butterflies
in her stomach. She shook her head quickly
before her thoughts went somewhere else.
Focus Heaven! She told herself.
While getting ready to meet King Rufus,
Heaven thought of how she could help the
young boys and girls without creating
threatening him to stop wouldn’t work
unless she exposed that she could easily
know if he went back to doing what he
Spreading rumors would stain his
reputation, but would it stop him from
committing such acts?
Unless he was punished for it, he wouldn’t.
And for him to get punished, there had to
be evidence. The young boys would never
expose him out of fear for their lives and
their families. Even if they did, it would be
their words against his.
His reputation getting stained would
eventually lead to his downfal, but
meanwhile he would unleash his fury on the
innocent boys and girls. Heaven wanted to
do it in a way that wouldn’t harm them any
Another idea was the seal. If she got a hold
on the seal, she would rightfully be the
ruler, but without a war getting hold on the
seal would be suspicious. Usually when an
army wins, they would invade the castle, kill
the king and give the seal to their Own king.
So the seal was not the solution to her
She sighed. What was she supposed to do?
“My Lady, you look troubled. Kate pointed
who was making her hair.
“I am.” Heaven replied. “But it will be fine.
Once she was ready, she walked out of the
room. A guard was already waiting for her
and led her to a parlor where King Rufus
was waiting. Heaven felt sick just looking at
Standing up, he smiled when he took notice
of her. “What a pleasant surprise.” He said,
his eyes gleaming in a way that made her
King Rufus took her hand and kissed her
knuckles. “Welcome, princess Heaven.
Heaven forced a smile. “Thank you, Your
He offered her to sit down and then
dismissed the guards. Heaven knew they
were standing right outside the door, yet
she felt uncomfortable being alone with this
“I am surprised to see you here. I was
informed a General would come.” He began.
“Consider me one, Your Majesty. She told him.
He raised his brows, but then smiled. “I
could help with that. I would let you
become a General with no questioning.
Heaven knew what he was offering.
I am here for the trade. Heaven said
“I already told your father l am not
interested to work with him.”
Decresh would be a powerful ally. You want
the royal army to help you. If this deal
becomes successful, I will become a
General. We could later negotiate. She
He laughed. “Princess Heaven. No offence,
but even if you became a General, the royal
army would be far from your commnand.
“I wouldn’t be so sure. She said, looking him
in the eyes. I know I am a woman, but can
assure you I am stronger than the strongest
man in your army.”
“That sounds like a challenge.” He said.
“If you want to make it one, I accept it, Your
Heaven has challenge the King, can she prove her self?
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 62
Zarin was exhausted after the long trip. Not
his body, but his mind. He had never had to
endure to just sit on a horse and go on for
days. How did people travel like that? He
was thankful he could just teleport. If it
wasn’t for Heaven, he wouldn’t be doing all
of this, and she didn’t even pay attention to
him during their journey. She treated him
like any other guard.
And then he had to sleep with all the other
guards in a strange hall. The beds were so
Small he could barely sleep. But it didn’t
matter. Once everyone fell asleep, he
decided to leave and see if his plan was
He teleported himself to the most famous
brothel. Only wealthy men could afford the
prostitutes here, and Zarin had asked for
the most expensive one He was gong to
offer her to an ancient demon after all
Lord Zarin. Welcome The owner greeted.
Thank you. Any information. He asked
Rose has completed her mission, and she
was successful. He was very pleased and
even payed her. A generous amount. The
owner told him.
He knew it. That man had no real love for
Heaven. He was just using her. He couldn’t
wait to expose him.
With that information he went back to
Valish, feeling relieved that he would get rid
of that ancient demon soon. He might have
blinded everyone, but not him. He could see
through his disguise.
Now sleeping in the small bed felt less
“Zarin! Zarin! Wake up!”
Annoyed, Zarin opened his eyes. Callum
towered over his bed with his serious
It is morning He said
It is early
Guards, wake up early. Callum told him.
Oh, right? He was a guard now. He forced
himself out of bed with a yawn.
We are going to Princess Heaven’s room
and escort her.” Callum explained.
“Where?” Zarin asked.
“Her Highness will fight the most skilled
swordsman in Valish. We will escort her to
the fighting pit. Many people will be there,
so we need to be on our watch and protect
her. Your demon abilities could be useful
Zarin was confused. Why would Heaven
fight a swordsman?
Getting dressed, he followed Callum and
Oliver to where Heaven was staying. They
waited outside the room for a while and
then Heaven came out dressed in an armor
with hair tied up in a ponytail.
Good morning, Your Highness. Both
Callum and Oliver bowed.
Zarin hesitated. Was he supposed to bow?
“Good morning. He greeted, bowing
Heaven smiled at him, amused. He felt silly.
When they started to walk, Zarin hurried to
her side. Why will you fight?” He asked.
“King Rufus promised to trade with us if I
defeated his strongest man. She explained.
Zarin wasn’t worried, unless the man used
some dirty tricks. Heaven would easily
When they arrived at the fighting pit, Zarin
was surprised by the amount of people who
came to watch the fight. King Rufus was
sitting separately from the crowd while his
guards stood beside him.
When they escorted Heaven inside to the
pit, the crowd cheered. Once she was
provided with a sword and a shield, they left
her side but didn’t go far. They stood in a
corner, closer to her than anyone else.
The crowd cheered again. This time
because the skilled swordsman walked into
the pit. He lifted his arms in the air, waving
for everyone to keep cheering him on. This
man was gloating, but soon he would have
his libs broken. Even breathing would
Heaven stood confidently, looking relaxed
while she waited for him to finish
Zarin grimaced thinking of how badly
stained this mans reputation would be after
this fight. The most skilled swordsman was
beaten by a woman.
The man turned to Heaven and showed her
with his hand that he would slice her throat.
Zarin got extremely annoyed by his
behavior. How he would enjoy seeing him
And what was he doing now?
He growled and started hitting his chest
the crowd cheered louder
Zarin almost rolled his eyes.
He turned to Callum and Oliver. While
Oliver seemed excited, Callum just stood
With his arms crossed over his chest. But he
could see the deadly stare in his eyes.
“You just want to kill him. Don’t you?” He
He will wish he was dead soon. Callum
The man’s name was Brody. The crowd
chanted his name as the fight started, but
once he missed a strike, the chanting
lessened and when he missed three strikes
it became quiet. It looked like he never
missed before, but Heaven was smaller and
quicker than him. She easily stepped away
from each strike with little effort.
Brody frowned. His face hardened. He
Tightened his grip on the sword and made
himself ready to attack, this time showing
no mercy. But he could still not even hit her
Zarin knew Heaven was provoking
him on purpose. Warming him up, while
entertaining the crowd. She could easily
finish him, but there was no fun in that.
Zarin looked up to see where King Rufus
sat. He tried to remain calm, but Zarin could
see the worry in his eyes. He should not
have bargained with a fight
When Brody became a little tired, Heaven
began to attack. Her sword hit his shield
with such force that he stumbled a few
steps back. Gasps came from the crowd
Brody was shocked, but Heaven didn’t give
him time to think. She swung her sword at
him again and again. Each time hitting the
shield harder, causing Brody to crumble to
his knees. Heaven stepped back and gave
him a chance to get back on his feet.
Zarin knew she could strike the right place
if she wanted to. But she had to look human
and not expose her power .
Brody was panting. He was baffled by her
strength, and now he looked afraid. With
one swing of her sword, Heaven knocked
the shield out of his hand, while causing him
to stumble back again.
More gasps came from the crowd. Everyone
watched intently, surprised by this woman
beating this skilled swordsman.
Heaven threw away her shield. Now they
would only fight with their swords only.
Brody became impulsive and started to
attack viciously, only tiring himself. After a
while Heaven had enough. Stepping away,
she went behind him and elbowed him in
the back of his neck.
Oliver grimaced. “That looks painful.” He
Brody lost his balance and fell on his hands
and knees. Heaven kicked him in the
stomach and he rolled over on his back with
a groan. She stepped on the hand in which
he held the sword until he released it. Then
she kicked the sword away. When he tried
to get up, she placed the sharp tip of her
blade On his throat.
Zarin wanted to clap, but he wasn’t
completely satisfied. This man was getting
away easily after all the bragging and
threats. She could at least cut off his tongue
and feed it to him. But Callum was right. A
lot of shaming was awaiting him. Humans
could be very cruel.
What a great fight
Would the king accept defeat?
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 63
Heaven looked around as she stood in the
middle of the fighting pit. She had won, and
now the crowd stood up and chanted her
name. She had a strange feeling of
accomplishment despite already knowing
that she would win.
When she turned to King Rufus, he forced a
Smile on his face. Heaven knew he was not
happy. Defeating his most skilled
Swordsman meant shaming him as wel. He
Heaven wondered if he would take that
anger out on her or be careful to not start a
war with her father. Only time would tell.
Giving back the weapons, her guards came
to escort her out of the pit. “I am so proud
of you, Your Highness.” Oliver said on their
Callum nodded in agreement
Yes. You did well. Zarin added.
Thank you. Heaven replied
It felt odd to see him dressed as a guard
She was used to seeing him dressed nicely
Suddenly he frowned as he looked behind
her. Heaven turned around and found
heavily armed guards approaching them
She immediately knew what was going on.
Dont protest She whispered to her
guards. “Just follow them.”
Zarin looked at her confused as the guards
neared. “Princess Heaven. Cheating by
poising you opponent is a çrime and you
shall be punished accordingly.”
“Who said she cheated? When did she
cheat?” Zarin asked, protesting as the
guards grabbed their arms.
“Zarin, do as I said.” Heaven ordered.
His eyes blazed with anger, but he let them
drag him away together with Oliver and
Callum. The guards didn’t touch her, only
motioned for her to follow them. Heaven
followed obediently, and they threw them
inside a cell.
Two of the guards pulled their dagger and
stabbed Oliver, Callum and Zarin in one
thigh. Heaven was shocked, but Zarin was
quick to react. He got angry and was about
to attack the guards, when she stopped
“What are you doing?!” She asked furiously,
turning to the guards.
“Just following orders, so you can’t escape.
He explained. Then he walked out of the cell
and locked them in.
Zarin looked at her, baffled. “Why are we
letting them lock us in? I could just kill him.”
“Be calm and sit down.” Heaven told.
She turned to Oliver and Callum. “I am
sorry. She said.
“Don’t be. We have been through worse.
Oliver smiled as he held his bleeding thigh.
Heaven took off her armor and rippeda
piece of cloth from her shirt. Then she went
to Oliver and wrapped it around his wound.
Callum had already taken care of himself,
and Zarin would heal. Sitting down on the
dirty ground like everyone else, she leaned
against the wall. Zarin who was sitting
across from her stared at her with a frown.
She was about to explain herself when
Callum spoke. “Your Highness, it seems like
you expected this to happen.
“I did” She knew that King Rufus would
either be clever and not cause a problem or
be rash and anger her father. She expected
Speaking to llyas, Heaven realized that
many rulers misused their power and
abused the weak. Her father probably
already knew and wouldn’t declare war
against every King because of such matters.
As a good ruler he had to think of the
wellbeing of his kingdom and his people
first and foremost, and going to war all the
time would make many people suffer. He
couldn’t let people suffer to release others
from their suffering.
Presenting that as a reason for the Royal
army to go to war would make her father
look bad. It is not their responsibility to
save people in other Kingdoms. The Royal
army fought for either benefits or loss. So
Heaven used herself as a bait.
Accusing her and holding her hostage
meant disrespecting the kingdom and their
king, and if they didn’t take action it would
mean showing a sign of weakness and that
would be a loss.
Heaven didn’t want to use this method. She
didn’t want to cause a war either, but she
Overweighted the benefits and the
disadvantages. The Kingdom of Valish was
known for its natural resources. That is why
her father wanted to trade with King Rufus.
If he didn’t keep his part of the deal, it
would be a loss, adding his habits of
harming those children, which he wouldn’t
stop doing unless she got rid of him.
If they invaded Valish, they would get hold on all its
resourced and free those children from
their suffering. They wouldn’t have to worry
about finding other Kingdoms to trade with
as-well. Their people would have enough
food to last the winter.
King Rufus wanted to borrow their royal
army to defeat another kingdom. It meant
he was looking for ways to gain more
power. He would eventually find a kingdom
that would be willing to lend their army in
exchange for natural resources, and king
Rufus would gain more power. It would be
better to fight him before he gained more
power and caused more children to suffer.
After a lot of thinking, she came to the
conclusion that the benefits overweighted
the loss, but to make the royal army take
immediate action she used herself as a bait.
Her father would soon find out what
happened to her.
Heaven told Zarin, Callum and Oliver
everything. She wanted to know Callum and
Oliver’s thoughts. They knew more about
politics than her.
“You seem to have thought through
everything. But what about you becoming a
General? This means you failed your
mission.” Callum said.
“I know. I haven’t found a solution to that
yet. She admitted.
Maybe they could help her find a solution.
She didn’t want to give the royal council the
satisfaction of seeing her lose.
She turned to Zarin who was watching her
intently the whole time. Was he thinking of
something? He used to impress with his
learning skills when they were younger,
maybe he still had it in him.
Are we Just supposed to wait until your
father invades Valish?”
That is the plan, until we have a better
plan? Do you have a better plan?” She asked.
Several minds were better than one. Maybe
together they could find a better solution.
Zarin leaned his head back and closed his
eyes. She knew this was difficult for him,
but he was the one who wanted to follow
They all sat quietly and waited. Heaven
wanted to make the wait less boring, so she
decided to have small conversations witth
“How long have you known my father?” She
“Since we were twelve.” Callum replied.
Oliver nodded in agreement.
That young?” Heaven asked, surprised.
Yes. Once we were sixteen, we were
Supposed to be fully trained and become
royal guard 💂.
And at seventeen you went to war?
Heaven had heard the stories of her father
winning all those battles at the age of
seventeen.. The former King used him to
gain more power. She hated him.
“Why did you choose to be mother’s
guards? After all the years with her father
she was curious to know how they became
her mother’s guards.
“It is not because I didn’t like to serve His
Majesty. I wanted to protect the person he
cared for the most.” Callum explained.
“That is serving him indirectly.” Oliver
“Indeed.” Callum agreed.
1 am sorry I took you away from mother.
Heaven said feeling guilty.
You didn’t. We are still serving our Queen
by being here with you, Your Highness.
Heaven gave him a smile.
When the sun set, Heaven and Zarin
teleport to get some food. They snuck into
the kitchen and brought with them as much
food as they could. When they were back,
they shared the food with Callum and
Oliver seemed to be in pain because of his
injury. Heaven felt bad but didn’t know what
She needed her spell book.
She stood up, “Wait here!” She said.
“Where are you going? Zarin asked.
“I will be right back.” Heaven said and
teleported to her room. She got hold on her
spell book and quickly went back before
anyone found her.
When she was back inside the cell, they
stared at her, confused. Ignoring their
questioning looks and she went sträight to Oliver.
“I’ll try to help you She told him.
“I am alright, Your Highness. He protested.
No, you are not. Let me try. She said.
She went through her spell book. There had
to be something that could help him. To her
surprise, she found a spell that could take
away pain. But where would the pain go?
Heaven decided to try it and followed the
instructions. She places her hand on the
wound and performed the spell. Pain shot
through her arm. Shocked, she pulled her
hand away. What was that?
Heaven has a golden heart of humanity, but
will she survive the pain of two men she is transferring to her self through magic 🔮?
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 64
Heaven couldn’t sleep because of the pain in
her arm. Now she understood where the
pain went. It went into her and after taking
both Oliver and Callum’s pain; she lay on the
ground facing the other way. Pretending to
be asleep so they wouldn’t know that she
was hurting. It took a long while for the pain
to go away.
When the pain was completely gone, she
took a deep breath, finally relaxing. Now she
tried to sleep, but the ground was cold and
she felt like she was breathing in dust.
Turning around, she found Oliver and
Callum sleeping without a problem, but
Zarin had a hard time just like her. Maybe
even more than her
When he turned around, they lay facing
each other He looked at her for a while
Are you alright? He asked.
Heaven nodded You?
“I am fine. He replied. Are you sure your
father knows what happened?
Yes: She had told Ilyas to report to her if
her father didn’t find out. Since she didn’t
hear from him, she was sure her father
How did you know the King would react
this way? He asked.
“The lessons I have been taking have helped
a lot. I learned to always think about the
consequences of my actions before acting
She told him.
He nodded. “Good night” He said.
He then closed his eyes and after a while
she knew he fell asleep. But Heaven could
still not sleep. Her heart fell heavy, and she
wondered what Zamiel was doing. She knew
he was trying to keep a distance to let her
accomplish things on her own, but
something bothered.her. She had to go see
Heaven teleported herself to his house: The
halls and rooms were dark. Not a single fire
was lit. She already got a bad feeling
Going upstairs, she went to his room. The
Room was dimly lit with a few candles
burning and the moonlight that shone from
the window. Broken furniture, glass, vases
and cups lay across the floor. It looked like
someone had a fight or an outburst.
Heaven walked further in, stepping over the
broken pieces. She found Zamiel sleeping
on his bed. He lay on his back with a bare
chest. The white sheets only covered him
from the hips and below. She had never
seen this much of a male body before. The
moonlight that came from the window fell
on his chest and stomach, making it more
visible. Heaven walked closer, her heart
pounding. She forgot about her worry after
seeing the broken furniture, All she could
do was stare at the half covered man lying in
bed. She felt her cheeks burn, but still
couldn’ turn away.
This was new to her
eyes and she was curious.
Her gaze fell on his seulptured stomach,
then went up to his chiseled chest. He lay
with his head turned to one side, showing
the veins and the strained muscles on his
neck. Then she followed his broad shoulders
that led to his powerful arms, streaked with
Heaven’s mouth fell open, and she sucked in
a deep breath. Zamiel stirred in his sleep
and turned his head to the other side. Her
heart almost jumped out of her chest
thinking he woke up and caught her in the
act. As if she was doing something bad. She
wasn’t sure what she was doing
A frown settled between his eyebrows. He
seemed disturbed. Heaven walked closer
and loomed over him. His hair, his forehead
and his chest glistened. He was sweating
Was he having a nightmare again
She carefully placed her hand on his
forehead He was burning, and he was
tisualy very cold. Slowly, he opened his eyes
and looked at her. He seemed to recognize
her this time.
Heaven. His voice was rough from sleep
She sat beside him. I am here. She said
taking his hand.
He forced himself to sit up, as if he didn’t
want her to see him like this. “I didn’t
expect you to be here.
“You are always there when I need yoou.
Something told me you needed me She
He leaned his head back against the
headboard. He looked exhausted. It was
probably the fever.
“Wait! She told him
Standing up. she hurried to the kitchen. She
needed a bowl, water, and a piece of cloth
It was not easy finding everything, but after
going around for a while, she got hold on
everything she needed.
Then she went back
to his room
Zamiel seems confused for a momernt, then
Smiled when he realized what she was
doing, I am fine, Heaven He told
But Heaven didn’t listen. She put the bow
down, dipped the cloth in the cold water
then squeezed the water out. Sitting beside
him, she places the cloth on his forehead
“How does it feel?” She asked.
“It feels good.” He sighed.
Heaven smiled. She repeated the same thing
again, then started to wipe the cloth over
his shoulders and neck. Again she found
herself staring and hoped he wouldn’t
notice. Zamiel watched her intently as she
wiped the wet cloth over his body. She felt a
little embarrassed under his scrutiny. She
had never been this close to a bare body
Heaven tried to avoid going down to his
stomach, but once she did, she felt her
cheeks burm and her throat became dry.
She looked up at him just to be met by his
burning gaze. Her heart stopped. Why was
he looking at her like that
She cleared her throat. Has the burning
eased? She asked him.

His eyes bored into hers. The intensity of
them made her heart cease to beat. “You
have set me on fire, Heaven”He said. “And
water will not quench these flames.
“Then what does?” She whispered, as if
afraid to hear the answer.
“Come closer” He told her.
Heaven’s heart went from staying silent to
beating fast as she sat closer to him. Zamiel
reached for her hair and removed it from
her neck. Was he going to bite her? Now?
He leaned in and she felt his hot breath
tickle her neck. Heaven closed her eyes as
all thoughts fled her head. She didn’t care
whether or not he marked her.
When she felt his hot lips on her skin, she
curled her toes. Zamiel kissed her neck
before his lips went to her ear
“Next time, I want to bury my fangs right
where I kissed you. He wlhispered.
Why do you think Zamiel is taking long time to bite Heaven.?
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 65
Heaven couldn’t help but wonder what it
would feel like to have his fangs buried in
her neck. It made her excited when it
shouldn’t. It was painful the first time.
His lips slowly moved from her ear to her
lips. A light brush and she shivered. Then he
rested his forehead against hers, their face
close to each other, their hot breaths
“Tell me, Heaven.” He continued to speak in
a low voice. Tell me you love me.
“I love you. She breathed.
Do you need me?”
“I need you.
Do you want me?
“All of you
Heaven thought he was asking for
assurance, It was definitely a bad dream that
made him feel this way. She wanted him to
know how she truly felt about him. That he
need not worry ever that she would leave
Gently, she grabbed his face and Kissed him
It was not a hungry kiss. It was a comforting
one. One that expressed her strong love for
him, her trust in him, and will to be by his
side. When she pulled away, she was
Surprised that her demon stayed calm.
“You taste like earth.” She told him, her
hands resting on his strong shoulders.
You taste like heaven.”
Heaven smiled. “And what do I smell like?”
He grabbed a few strands of her hair and
inhaled her scent. You smell like a garden
On a spring day
A garden? She never expected that answer
She loved the scent of her garden. the mix
of grass, flowers and fresh air.
Zamiel kept inhaling her scent. Heaven
Wondered if it wasn’t torturing him
Am I giving you a hard time?” She asked
He pulled back and looked at her with a
frown Why would you?”
Because of delaying our marriage
He smiled. “No. I know you have things to
take care of and.. I have things I need to
take care of as well.”
What do you need to take care of? She
He looked at her for a while. “Heaven, there
are things I need to tell you, but not now
After you complete your mission
Things? Not one thing
She nodded. “And what happened to your
He looked around at the mess, l tell you
about it as well, after your mission is
Heaven frowned. What was it he wanted to
tell her? She hoped it was nothing serious.
It is nothing you need to worry about” He
told her. “How is your mission going? He
“Just as planned. She told him remembering
that she had to go back. “I need to go back.
Heaven touched his forehead. He seemed
better now. “Don’t forget to eat and drink or
He smiled. “I will
She stood up, and he stood up with her,
holding the sheets around his waist Heaven
almost panicked for a moment thinking
they were slipping out of his hands. She had
no doubt she would hurry and hold them
A hug would help me sleep He smiled
that smile where only one corner of
is lips curved.
Her gaze fell on his chest again, and her
cheeks burned. Getting that close to his
Before she could finish thinking, he drew
her into his arms. Heaven stiffened at first,
but then his warmth slowly enveloped her
and his scent intoxicated her. Hesitantly,
she wrapped her arms around him. He was

Zamiel, might abandon my mission if you
don’t let me go. She whispered.
He chuckled, releasing her. “I don’t think
you would after all the trouble you went
through. He said looking at her.
If only he knew. She went through as much
trouble to just get away from him. To stop
thinking about him, even if it was only for a

before she could change her mind.

them in this situation. Earlier, she had to
wait until everyone fell asleep to bring them

have to do the same tomorrow

going to sleep.
When she woke up, everyone was awake.
“Good morning. They greeted her.
“Good morning. Heaven smiled, sitting up
and adjusting her hair. “Was I sleeping too
“No. We just woke up. Oliver replied.
Heaven’s body felt sore after sleeping on
the ground for so long She stretehed her
muscles before leaning her back against the

She could hear the irritation in his voice
and for the first time a single sentence that

lt he was going to be grumpy, he shouldn’t

remain calm and explain
Yes, I am sure. Father always thinks ahead
and of all the possible outcomes. Sending
me on a mission for the first time, he must
have kown that there is a chance I could
get into trouble. He wouldn’t send me away
without keeping watch.
And now that Ilyas still didn’t report to her,
she must have been right. She would talk to
Ilyas tonight, just to be sure
When our army wins and they are on their
Way here, we Will get out of the cell and
invade the castle before they arrive
Heaven spoke. that way we will make
things easier for them but also be
participants in the war
How will we know when they are on the
way here?” Oliver asked.
There is someone who will inform me.
The castle guards are many? How will we
fight them all? Zarin spoke.
We won’t. We will set traps. We will get rid
of the archers and the gatekeepers first
because their absence won’t be as easily
noticed. At night, I will put them to sleep
and we will bring them here to the dungeon
and lock them in.”

and she could put people into a deep

“Is it Zamiel? Zarin asked.
“No. Zamiel wouldn’t come unless he
sensed that she needed him.
It was strange, but every time she needed
him he was always there.
Heaven felt calm to see Oliver and Callum

Yes, he will. What do you want us to do

The day went by slowly, only sitting and
waiting for something to happen. Heaven
practiced magic now and then and even
helped heal Oliver and Callum. Their
wounds were completely gone. It did hurt
but not as much as when she was taking
away their pain.
Callum had denied her help at first. He was
very observant and had noticed that she
was in pain last night. Heaven didn’t know
how. She hadn’t made a sound and tried not
to move much.
Callum didn’t want her to bear his pain, but
Heaven insisted stubbornly and told him he
had to have his strength to fight for her
When the night came, llyas arrived outside

lyas. Heaven stood up and walked closer
to the cell door
Your father will attacked the royal army of
Valish tonight He informed.
Just as expected. The royal army stayed at
the borders of the kingdom. The journey
here took four days, but the royal army are
much faster and could reach the
borders in two days. Her father attacked at
night when they expected it the least. The
win would be easier and tomorrow morning
he would be on his way here if not sooner.
They had to start taking action tonight.
“I took care of the gate guards” He told her.
Good. Now we will take care of the
archers. She said.
It is time for war do you think they will win?
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 66
Heaven introduced Ilyas to the others. With
Ilyas by her side, it would be much easier to
fight. Even if someone noticed them, he
could compel them.
“Callum and Oliver, you can stay here. Zarin,
you can follow me.”
Since they could easily hide and teleport, it
would be better to leave Callum and Oliveer
out of this part.
It was an easy part. Heaven put them to
sleep, and Ilyas and Zarin teleported them
to the dungeon and locked them in
Now they had to get rid of the footsoldiers.
“Lady Heaven. If you want, you can start
with the King. I will release your men and
we can take care of the others.” Ilyas told
“Alright. I’ll leave it to you.” Heaven said,
then turned to Zarin. “Follow Ilyas’ lead” She
“Il follow you. I am here to protect you. He
“You are here as my guard. I give orders,
you follow.” She told him.
She saw confusion in his eyes, but she didn’t
have time to think about him, so she
proceeded to find the king. She had never
seen his room before, so she couldn’t
teleport there. That was the difference
between teleporting as a witch and a
demon. Demons could teleport without
knowing what the place they wanted to be
looked like. But witches had to envision the
This meant she had to find it on her own.
She walked in the shadows of the halls in the
king s quarters, putting the guards she came
across to sleep until she found his room.
Two guards stood at each side of the door.
Heaven thought of putting them to sleep,
but she would fight them later, anyway. So
she stepped out of the shadows and
revealed herself. The guards seemed
confused for a moment, but then quickly
reached for their swords.
Heaven attacked and killed them swiftly with
only two strikes of her dagger. She went for the throat.
Then she kicked the door to the king’s room
open. The guards in his quarters were
sleeping, so it didn’t matter, and she wanted
to scare him.
Rufus moved in his bed and tried to sit up.
“What is… He began but stopped when he
saw her in the dim light.
Heaven stood still, letting him realize what
was happening. She wanted him to become
The king’s eyes widened with fear and
realization. He held the sheets close to his
body and flinched back. “Guards! Guards!”
“They are all dead! Heaven told him,
speaking in a calm tone.
“How did you get out?” He asked,
“I will tell you all about it.” She said stalking
toward his bed.
“Don’t come close!” He yelled.
Heaven grasped the collar of his shirt and
then placed her dagger on his throat. “If you
yell again, I will cut your tongue.” She
threatened, looking into his eyes. Then,
before he could think, she teleported them
both to the throne hall.
Rufus was so shocked, his legs started
shaking What.what are..you?
“Demon.” She said flashing an evil smile. “I
thought you knew that my father is the
Rufus shook his head in denial. This is a
nightmare. It has to be.” He started talking
Heaven gave him a push, and he stumbled
forward. She gave him another push to keep
going toward the throne. Right when he was
a few steps away, she kicked the back of his
knees so he fell on them.
He kept shaking. “This is a nightmare.” He
closed his eyes as if he would wake up to
another reality when he opened them.
Heaven went to sit on his throne. When he
opened his eyes and saw where she sat, you
can take it!” He hurried to say. “You can take
all of it. Just let me go.” He rubbed his hands
against each other, pleading for his life.
” I am not doing this for the throne. Heaven
This is about the fight, right? I will clear
your name. Please.” He continued to rub his
“It is not about that either”
He looked up at her confused, his eyes
darting around trying to think of what else
he could have done. Heaven could see that
he couldn’t find another reason.
While her guards took care of other parts of
the castle, Heaven thought that she could
have a talk with King Rufus and make him
see his bad deeds.
Do you use young boys and girls for you
Own pleasure?” She asked.
He seemed surprised by her question, but
clearly he found nothing wrong with it from
the way he confidently responded, “yes.”
And you don’t think that is wrong?
He looked at her, appalled. “Every King does
it. I am sure your father does it.”
Heaven frowned when he named her father.
“You don’t know my father.”
I know wealthy and powerful men. That is
how we live. Those boys and girls can feed
their families thanks to us.
She couldn’t believe her ears. He actually
thought he was doing them a favor. “Maybe
their families are starving because of you to
He chuckled. “You are still young and naive.
I can’t feed an entire kingdom.”
“As a king, you can create opportunities for
people to make a living”
“What do I gain out of it?” He asked.
Heaven had enough now. “Well, what did
you gain out of being the way you are now
She asked, reminding him of the position he
The fear returned to his eyes, and he
There must be a way we can negotiate?” He
“The only way for you is a painful death.”
She told him, then she put him to sleep.
He wouldn’t wake up for a long while unless
she wanted him to, so she decided to look
for her men and see if everything was going
as planned. To her surprise, before she
could look for them, they found her.
Heaven was surprised. They couldn’t have
taken care of everything so fast. Or did
Something go wrong?
Zarin walked up to her, a worried
expression on his face.
“What happened? Heaven asked as soon as
he neared before he could speak.
“Ilyas. He killed them all in the blink of an
eye. Who is he?
The war continue.
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 67
Heaven blinked a few times, What was he
talking about? She looked at Ilyas standing
with her men in the hall. He could probably
hear them but didn’t bother to look their
I am saying he moved like a storm and
killed with ease. He is more powerful than
he clainms to be, He can’t just be hundred
years old. Zarin explained, not caring that
Ilyas could hear them.
He moved like a storm? She clearly had
more to learn about Ilyas, but she didn’t
want to judge him before knowing the
“Did he do it in front of everyone?” She just
asked in case
She didn’t believe that Ilyas would be so
stupid to expose that he was a demon. All
demons knew that their existence had to be
unknown to humans
“No Zarin replied.
“Then there shouldn’t be a problem. He
made the task easier, didn’t he?
He did. But he is not being truthful” Zarin
“I believe in him. Heaven spoke with
finality. “Now we have other things to think
She stood up from her seat and went to
speak to her soldiers. They still had things
left to do. They had taken care of the
castle’s defence and the king’s quarter’s.
Those were the biggest threats. But the
queen’s and the prince’s quarters were left
The prince followed in his father’s
footsteps. He exploited and oppressed the
weak. Despite all the natural resources their
kingdom had, their people starved while
they swam in riches. The more she found
out about humans, the more they surprised
Heaven gave her men instructions with
Callum’s help and they divided the task
between them to take care of the prince
and the queen.
Zarin, you can follow them and help. Ilyas,
you can stay here with me. Heaven said
Zarin looked between her and Ilyas before
following the others quietly. Heaven was
relieved that she didn’t have to scold him
again. Once everyone left the hall, Ilyas
turned to her.
“My Lady, it seems like my actions
displeased you.: He said.
“No, they didn’t” She looked into his eyes.
The pale blue in them had a hint of silver.
She had thought about it once before but
never asked. “Was any of your parents
Yes, my mother. She Was a smoke demon.
She had guessed right. No wonder Zarin was
Surprised by his strength. Zamiel must have
chosen him for a reason, but strength alone
was not the reason. Why was Ilyas loyal to
her? It felt like he served her
wholeheartedly, despite that he wasn’t given
much of a choice.
Ilyas had provided her with all the
information she needed the night she was
making her plan. He had been a great
“What do you think we should do with the
King?” She asked, curious to know his
“My lady, you came up with this plan. I am
sure you will find a fitting punishment for
Heaven sighed. She knew she didn’t want to
do anything with him before her father
came. Let’s lock him in for now.” She said. “I
Scared him so he should be tortured for a
while after he wakes up in a cell.”
Ilyas nodded and followed her orders. When
he came back, he had the seal with him.
“How did you find it?” She asked.
I woke him up and compelled him.” He said
simply, handing her the seal.
Heaven took it and looked at it thoughtfully.
If she had only thought about herself, she
would have been on her way home with a
deal and get her title as a General. Now she
ruined her chances, but she didn’t regret it
Zarin, Callum and Oliver were the first to
come back. They had the prince with them.
Ilyas took care of him by locking him in a
cell. Heaven didn’t bother to talk to him or
Scare him. He would justify his actions just
like his father.
The Queen’s guards were taken care of and
she was left to sleep. Heaven ordered Ilyas
to compel her into slumber, and then she
was locked in her room. The servants that
were awake realized what was happening
but didn’t cause a problem. They were not
armed and wouldn’t be reckless to fight
against them. They didn’t have a reason to.
When all the soldiers completed their tasks
Heaven ordered the servants to provide
them with food and take care of the injured
ones. Because of Ilyas and Zarin, things
went smoother than she expected. But
taking over a kingdom was more than just
invading it. Once her father came, he would
have a lot to do. There would be political
decisions and announcements to be made,
rules to be set, purnishments to be given,
order to be brought back and much more.
“Your Highness. Why are you not eating?
Callum disrupted her thoughts. He handed
her a bread where she sat alone on the
floor, thinking, while everyone else ate their
Callum sat in front of her, keeping her
company. “Are you worried?” He asked.
She was of course disturbed by all this. It
wasn’t what she wanted to do, nor what she
came to do.
“Callum. Do you think we slhould always
avoid war She Asked
“No. I wouldn’t be wearing a military attire
otherwise.” He looked at her thoughtfully
for a while. “You are worried about your
father. He is not very fond of war!”
Heaven nodded. “I am worried, but not
because I doubt myself. What do you think?
Did I make the wrong decision?
“I think you were wise to not make a
decision for anyone. Just for yourself.
Heaven was glad that Callum could see her
point. He understood her strategy.
“if I may step out of line, I think it was time
someone made a decision. He said. “If you
need help, you have my support.”
Heaven was confused. What did he mean’?
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 68
Heaven felt cold. She wrapped her arms
around herself and bent her knees so she lay
curled on the ground, but still she kept
shaking until she woke up. When she
opened her eyes, she became shocked. How
could she have fallen asleep while on a
All of them were still in the throne hall.
Some of her soldiers were still eating and
resting, so she had only slept for a short
amount of time. Her eyelids felt heavy, her
head throbbed in pain, and her body felt
sore. She was exhausted after not having
slept much for almost three nights.
Sitting up, she looked around. Ilyas sat
relaxed on the steps that led to the throne
and Zarin sat alone in a corner. When he
saw that she was awake, he came and sat
next to her.
“You look tired.” He said. “Why don’t you
sleep some more?
Heaven shook her head. “I am alright.”
She couldn’t sleep while her men were
awake, even if they had already taken care
of everything, and were now waiting for her
father and the royal army to arrive.
“Do you still want to be a ruler after this?
“Yes.” Heaven replied, but didn’t care to
explain. She didn’t want to argue.
Standing up, she decided to get some fresh
air so she could feel more awake, but as
soon as she got up on her feet the world
around her began to spin. Losing her
balance, she felt like she was falling before,
but Zarin caught her before she could hit
He hurried and put his other arm under
knees and carried her up.
I am fine. Put me down. She said, even
Though she was feeling weak and dizzy
What is wrong with her?
Callum, Oliver and Ilyas hurried to her to
make sure she is alright. She needs to rest
Zarin said. “I’ll take her back to the guest
Heaven wanted to protest, but her body
refused to listen. Before she could force
herself, Zarin was carrying her out of the
hall. As soon as they were out of sight, he
teleported them to the guest room and lay
her down on the bed carefully. He then
covered her with a warm blanked and
Heaven sighed as the warmth of the sheets
took the cold away.
She felt embarrassed for looking weak in
front of her soldiers. They would think she
will not fit to lead. Maybe she wasn’t. If she
Was going to be like this, then they would
never respect her
Not able to hold her eyes open anymore
she closed them. Sleep pulled her in a way
that she couldn’t resist, and soon she was
surrounded by darkness.
But darkness alone did not come with
sleeping. Nightmares followed as well.
In this nightmare, she was already a queen
She sat with a crown on her head
somewhere high up. She was looking down
on people and guards that gathered in a
circle. They were waiting for something as
Soon, two guards holding a man locked in
chains appeared from the crowd. The man’s
face was hidden behind his long black hair.
The guards pushed him down on his knees,
and then one of them pulled his sword.
Looking up at her, he waited for her
Heaven gave the guard a nod, and then he
turned back to the man in chains. He drew
his sword back, but right before the man
got executed he looked uP, his hair falling
back and revealing his face
It was Zamiel
He looked at her with those pained eyes
that she so much recognized and that made
her heart twist in agony. Standing up hastily,
she reached her hand out for the guard to
stop as a soundless scream left her lips. But
it was too late. Blood spilled everywhere.
She felt the hot liquid stain her face. She
was horrified as she tried to wipe it away
and then looked at the blood on her hand.
She panicked, feeling another scream build
up in her throat.
Heaven shot her eyes open and sat up. Her
pounding heart felt like it would rip its way
out of her ribs.
“Heaven! Zarin hurried to her side and put
a hand on her shoulder. “Are you alright?”
Her throat felt so dry she could barely
respond. Her body trembled uncontrollably
and her eyes were wide in horror. She
Stared emptily in front of her, almost
looking through Zarin.
Zarin grabbed her shoulders and shook her
slightly. “Heaven. What happened?
Heaven was still dazed. The images of her
nightmare still playing out in front of her
Tears filled her eyes. Why did she keep
dreaming about this? And how could it feel
She touched her face, feeling wetness on
her fingers. But it wasn’t blood this time,
only her sweat and tears.
Through the terrifying images, she saw
Zarin’s concerned eyes. He grabbed her
face. “Are you there?” He asked.
Heaven tried to speak but her lips refused
to move so she nodded.
Zarin looked at her carefully. “It was only a
nightmare. You are alright.” He told her.
Was she alright? She had just seen Zamiel
get beheaded in front of her, and she had
been the one to allow it. After the promise
she made that she would protect him, she
let him die.
His eyes, the way he looked at her right
before he lost his head, right before his life
was taken away, haunted her. It truly felt
like she betrayed him.
More tears fell down her cheek, and Zarin
wiped them away with his thumb. “It’s
alright. I am here for you.” He said.
Heaven recoiled inside. It felt strange to
hear those words coming from him, now.
Suddenly, she came back to reality and
looked him in the eyes. She saw something
in his gaze, but before she could understand
what it was, he leaned in and pressed his lips
Heaven stiffened. Her mind froze. It took
her a moment to realize what was
happening, and her hands flew to his chest
to push him, but he pulled away and turned
to left before she could.
Heaven followed his gaze just to find Zamiel
standing in the middle of the room. Her
heart dropped as she looked into his stormny
eyes. They flashed silver as if he could cause
lightening to strike.
The worst is about to happen.
Will Zamiel ever believe Heaven? 🤔
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 69
Heaven was shocked. She sat frozen, unable
to react to the situation she found herself
in. She just stared into Zamiel’s stormy eyes
and just when she parted her lips to say
something, he vanished.
Pushing herself out of bed, she tried to go
after him when Zarin grabbed her arm to
prevent her from leaving.
Without looking back at him, she yanked
her arm away from his hold and teleported
to Zamiel’s room. It was dark inside, and
Zamiel stood by the window blocking some
of the light that came in from outside.
Heaven could feel the tense and cold
atmosphere even though she couldn’t see
his face. He was looking outside the window
and didn’t bother to turn to her despite
knowing that she was there.
“Zamiel.” She called carefully.
He ignored her, but she could feel his anger.
It felt as if the temperature in the room
dropped. It got cold.
“It is not what you think.” She tried to be
careful so he wouldn’t get angry at Zarin
and do something he would regret.
“It doesn’t matter what I think.” He said.
She could tell he was speaking with
clenched teeth and his anger only got
worse. The room went from cold to
freezing cold. Heaven Wrapped her arms
around herself, but her body began to
“Don’t you trust me?” She asked, her teeth
But the cold was only increasing, and
Heaven couldn’t stand it. “Please, Zamiel
stop!” She called, rubbing her arms with her
hands. He could kill by making someone
freeze to death.
Suddenly he turned around and the next
moment he wrapped his arms around her. “I
am sorry.” He said.
Heaven sighed, feeling his warmth wrap
itself around her
It is not you I don’t trust. It is him.” He
Continued. “I was so close to killing him.
He held her so tight she thought he would
crush her. “Zamiel, I can’t breathe.”
He loosened his arms around her, and she
She looked at him, “trust me. I will take care
of this.” She told him. “And you are the only
man I love.”
Heaven was very upset and hurt. She never
thought Zarin would act this way, and now
she had enough.
Zamiel gazed at her with a serious
expression. “Heaven. There is something l
need to tell you. He said. “I…”
Before he could start talking, Heaven felt
the necklace around her neck burn her skin.
It was the necklace she put a spell on to
communicate with llyas. He was calling her.
Her father and the army must have arrived.
“Is something Wrong?” Zamiel asked.
“My father has arrived. I need to go back
before anyone notices my absence. She

Suddenly she felt nervous. Now was the
time to face her father.
Zamiel nodded. “Remember that I wanted to
tell you something and trust in me the way
I trust you.
Heaven felt like he wanted to tell her
something important, but she had to hurry
back to Valish. “I trust completely.” She told.
“I have to go now.
He gave her a nod, and Heaven teleported
back to the castle. Zarin wasn’t in the
guestroom when she arrived, and she was
grateful for that. She didn’t want to deal
with him now.
But lyas and Callum were waiting for her
“My lady. Your father is here.” Callum told
her “He is waiting in the parlor”
Heaven nodded. “Thank you. I will go over
there.” She told him. Then she turned to
Ilyas. I’ll introduce you to father after I
have spoken with him.”
llyas gave her a nod.
Lucian was surprised by what he found
when he arrived at the King’s castle. Heaven
had freed her men, they had taken over the
castle and found the seal. He had expected a
few things, but not all of this.
The Royal army were also surprised. How
could they have taken over the whole castle
Callum complimented Heaven, saying she
made a plan so they could take over easily,
but he was smart to not reveal the plan. He
told the soldiers that they could ask Heaven
themselves if they were curious and that
she could be a great help in the future if
they had to go to war.
“She is very good with strategies.” He told
The rest of the soldiers told the same story
Heaven gave them different tasks, they
removed the castle’s defence and then
attacked. It was almost as if they were told
to say the same thing. But interestingly they
were not compelled, which made him think
that it was Callum or Oliver’s doing. Soldiers
always listened to their commander.
On their way to war and to the castle, some
soldiers speculated that it had to be Heaven
who caused King Rufus to act the way he
did. Others were baffled by Rufus’ actions.
They thought it was completely
inappropriate no matter what she did.
Now suddenly no one was talking about her
behavior or King Rufus. Everyone wanted to
know her plan on how she took over the
castle with only a few soldiers.
“Your Majesty. Her highness reminds me of
you. You took easily over many kingdoms
for your father, the former king” General
James spoke. He had been part of The Royal
army since the late King
That was true. Lucian had fought many
battles with only a few men and always went
home with victory. The former King
benefited from him. Decresh had grown in
power because of all the wars he fought and
Lucian went to the parlor and paced back
and forth while he waited for Heaven. He
had asked Callum to send her. He already
knew part of what happened. The demons
working for him had reported everything to
him. But he couldn’t say that to The Royal
army, so they believed that a bird delivered
Lucian stopped pacing and turned to
Heaven. His heart dropped wlhen he saw
her. She looked like she struggled a lot and
She was pale, had dark circles under her
eyes, and she was covered in dirt.
“Oh, Heaven.” He opened his arms for her
and she ran to him, enveloping him in a
Are you alright? He asked.
She nodded. “I am fine.” She said pulling
He forgot to act like a King in this situation.
His daughter would always first be his
daughter. But now they had to talk using
their formal titles.
“Please sit. He told her, motioning toward
the arm chair.
Heaven nodded and went to sit down. He
could hear her heart racing as he sat down
in front of her, but there was no hint of
nervouusness on her face. She was masking it
“What happened? He asked.
King Rufus accused me of cheating for
defeating his best swordsman. She said
“Of course. I think you knew the kind of
person he is.”
“I did. Just like Your Majesty knew the kind
of person he is. You knew the only thing he
wanted was the royal army, and he wouldn’t
make a deal for anything less. You knew I
Would fail to make a deal when you sent me
Yes, he knew. But he didn’t know she would
be so calm when she found out. Not only did
she sound calm, but also confident.
“You couldn’t make a deal, so you started a
war?” He asked. “That is not why I sent you
here. You were supposed to prove me
Wrong Since you sounded so confident.”
“Father” She changed her tone, which made
it seem like she was going to be personal. “I
know why you avoid war, but when it comees
to matters involving the kingdom, we
shouldn’t let our personal reasons get in the
way. I had my own personal reasons. I
wanted to save those children, and the only
way to do it for good was to eliminate the
King. But you taught me that we should
always think of our people and our kingdom
first, so I abandon any thoughts of war,
despite always coming to the same
conclusion. Then King Rufus suggested the
challenge. It made come up with a plan
where l would get answers to my questions
and not have to make decisions. I
questioned whether war wasn’t the
solution. I listed all the benefits and
disadvantages a war would bring and came
to the conclusion that war could be the
solution. But I am not as clever or as
experienced as you or the royal army, so my
conclusion could be wrong. Nor do I have
your status to make decisions concerning
the kingdom. Therefore, all I did was
provide you with a reason to go to war. The
decision was yours.
Lucian listened carefully, and for the first
time he was speechless. It felt as if he was
Speaking to someone else and not his
daughter. The way she calmly explained to
him, and her plan where she let the decision
fall on him and the blame fall on King Rufus
Being a good General is about knowing
when to go to war and when not to. It is not
about avoiding war at all costs. The Royal
armies duty is to protect and provide for
their kingdom, and they would rather die in
battle than from starving with their families.
The Royal army is supposed to fight for
their people more than their honor because
the honor lies in accomplishing their duties.
I am sure you didn’t even have to convince
them when you told them about this
incident. That Your Majesty and The Royal
army is here only proves that my conclusion
wasn’t Wrong. lf you are willing to fight for
honor, you should be more willing to fight
for the people. And if war wasn’t the
solution, I am sure Your Majesty would find
another way to save me.
Lucian continued to be surprised. Now she
questioned The Royal armies’ reasons for
going to war. She seemed to have educated
herself in the subject and spoke without a
doubt. It usually took a long time for men to
become a knowledgeable General but
Heaven showed her potential after such a
short amount of time.
This made him worry
When she was a child, his father had told
him that Heaven had the traits of a ruler.
That she was naturally gifted. Now he could
see what his father meant. For someone
who had only studied politics for a few
weeks and didn’t have much knowledge
about the outside world, she came up with a
perfect plan. She was naturally gifted.
Heaven is extral ordinary.
The Devil in her Dreams Chapter 70
Heaven left her father a bit confused. Was he impressed or not? He gave her mixed feelings, but she sensed he wasn’t too happy. Was it because of the way she spoke? Was she disrespectful? Was it because she said he and The Royal army were wrong?
She sighed. She was too tired to think of it now, and too hungry. Her stomach growled on her way back to the guest room. Her father had told her to rest. He would take over from here. She trusted that he would find the right way to punish the King and the Prince so she wasn’t worried.
Heaven turned back to find General Kian walking up to her. He bowed before looking at her worriedly.
“Your Highness. I have been worried about your wellbeing.” He said.
“Thank you. I am alright.” She assured him, “Are you alright?”
There was something very likeable about General Kian and Heaven couldn’t put her finger on what it was.
“You have impressed many of us. We were reminded of your father, when he used to easily take over other kingdoms.”
Heaven smiled shyly, feeling like she didn’t deserve all the praise. She was nowhere near her father. He had taken over kingdoms with his army alone. She had only taken over a castle with the help of her men and two demons. There was really nothing impressive about it. If her father wanted, he could have taken over the castle all alone.
“You, the army and father did most of the work. I didn’t do much.” She said.
He smiled at her. “You did well. Please rest, Your Highness. We will take over from here. And I would love to work on war strategies with you in the future.”
Heaven couldn’t believe her ears. Did General Kian just tell her he wanted to work with her? She felt like jumping around with joy but contained herself.
“I would love to help.” She told him.
“Have a good rest.” He said and excused himself.
Heaven went back to the guest room with a smile. She might not have failed completely if General Kian considered working with her. Suddenly she felt energetic again.
Before going to bed, she needed to bathe, but she had sent Kate away for her safety. And she didn’t feel comfortable to ask one of the maids in the castle to help her, so she decided to do it alone.
As she unbuckled her belt, she felt someone materialize in her room. Before she could turn she already knew who it was and it made the blood in her veins boil. She had forgotten about him and almost wished it remained that way.
She didn’t want to believe that her friend would stoop so low to do something like that. How could he do that to her?
He looked wary as he should. He carefully stepped forward. “I can explain.” He began.
“What could possibly explain your actions?” She asked. “Go home! I don’t want to see you again.” She turned away from him.
She didn’t know whether she was more hurt or angry, but she knew this feeling, the feeling of her demon being provoked. She was more angry than ever now because this time she felt betrayed.
“Heaven. Please listen to me once.” He said, and then she felt his hand on her shoulder.
Turning around, she punched him in the face. He was taken by surprise and stumbled backward as blood seeped from his nose.
“Don’t ever touch me again.” She said.
“Did it hurt?” She asked him. “That is how I felt, but much worse. Just because the pain you inflict can’t be seen doesn’t make it hurt any less.”
“Heaven, I never meant to hurt you.” He said.
“It doesn’t matter anymore. I just want you to leave.”
“I know I did wrong. I shouldn’t have kissed you, I admit that, but I am just trying to protect you from that man. He doesn’t love you. He isn’t who he says he is.”
“Stop!” Heaven yelled. “I want to hear no more. Leave!”
“He has truly blinded you.” He said with a frown.
She looked at him. Why was he so against Zamiel? This was more than him being angry because Zamiel harmed him and his sister. This was something else. Was it hatred?
It didn’t matter anymore. This was her life and she could be with whom she wanted. As a friend he could advise her, but he had no right to act this way.
“I am not blinded. I can see you, Zarin.” She said. “But now, I don’t want to see you anymore.”
“Zamiel doesn’t love you. He is using you.” He continued as if he couldn’t hear what she was saying.
She wanted to punch him again. “I told you to leave. Don’t force me to create a scene because you are here. It won’t look good on you.”
“Do as you please. I am not going before I convince you. I am going to show you the kind of man you are with. You think he loves you, but it is all a lie.”
He suddenly crossed the distance between them and grabbed her wrist.
“What are you doing?” She said trying to yank her hand away, but he gripped her tightly and before she could punch him again, he teleported them.
Heaven kneed him in the stomach and stepped away as soon as they arrived. Now she was boiling over.
“Are you in your right mind? What are you doing?!” She yelled furiously.
Zarin groaned in pain, holding his stomach. “Just… listen to me this time. I will leave you alone after this.”
Heaven looked around. Where did he bring them? She felt the smell of liquor and heard music and laughter come from the house in front of her. A man came out stumbling on his way, and the stench of alcohol made her wrinkle her nose. What was this place?
“There is someone I need you to meet.” He said holding his hands out as if telling her to calm down and wait.
Heaven was so close to pull her daggers but took a deep breath. She would just go back, but then he would follow her. She needed to make it clear to him, but how? He was too stubborn.
“Just meet this person. After that, I’ll leave you alone. I promise.” He said.
“Lord Zarin.” Suddenly a woman stood outside the house.
The woman looked between her and Zarin before she smiled at him.
“Lady Hilda. Could you call Rose?” He asked.
Who was Rose?
The woman winked at him before throwing her hair back and turning around, walking inside while swaying her h.i.p.s.
“Who is Rose?” Heaven asked impatiently.
He had been talking about Zamiel, and now suddenly he wanted her to meet Rose.
“You will know soon. Please, just wait a moment.”
Before he could finish his sentence, a woman walked out of the house. She had a shawl wrapped around her upper body even though it wasn’t cold outside. She seemed to want to cover herself, but she was a real beauty. Even her walk seduced as she approached them.
What was happening, and why did she need to meet this woman?
“Lord Zarin.” She curtsied.
Zarin turned to Heaven. “Heaven, you believe Zamiel loves you. You even believe he is your mate. But to him, you are just another woman. Just like Rose. You think I am lying? Then listen to her.” He said.
His words felt like a stab in the heart. Heaven couldn’t believe what she heard. He couldn’t mean what she thought he meant.
He turned to Rose. “Rose, tell her what happened when you went to his home.”
His home? Heaven’s eyes widened. This woman went to Zamiel’s home?
Rose turned to Heaven. “My Lady.” She began, but Heaven cut her off by holding her hand up.
She needed a moment to think. Were both of them trying to tell her that Zamiel had been with this woman? That he had touched and loved another woman?
No! Zamiel would never do that. He would never do anything to hurt her.
Heaven straightened herself and walked closer to Rose, standing face to face with her. She looked her in the eyes, “if you dare lie to me, you won’t see a tomorrow.” She threatened.
She had been so confident that Rose was going to lie to her, but the woman didn’t flinch and her heart beat stayed steady.
Heaven took a step back and studied her carefully. What was she going to hear today?
“I have no intentions of lying, My Lady. I did go to Lord Zamiel’s house. I offered myself.”
Heaven’s heart was beating the whole time. Her stomach turned when Rose spoke. She wasn’t sure if she wanted to hear the rest.
“But Lord Zamiel refused my services. He didn’t lay a finger on me.”
