“Mom and dad can’t keep us apart anymore,” I said before kissing her back. I had finally done it. I had gone against their wishes and freed us from the chains of our respective families.
We had been together for years, but our love was forbidden by our parents. I had spent the past few months searching for a way to be with her, and I had finally found it.
I had made a deal with a powerful demon, and in exchange for our freedom, I had to bring him the heads of my parents. I had done it, and now, here we were, together at last.
But something was off. I hadn’t expected her to react the way she did when I presented the heads. She had seemed almost…happy.
The thought sent a chill down my spine. What had I done? I had released us from our parents’ control, but at what cost?
As I looked into her eyes, I could see something sinister lurking beneath the surface. I had unleashed a monster, and I had no idea what it was capable of.
