“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
WITH HIS MAJESTIC WHITE wings folded behind his back, he walked, almost stomping the colorless floor under his feet. His gaze was fixated on the giant gates in the distance. Behind him, she looped her arm around his, using her strength to halt his advance towards the golden gates.
“Stop this!” She cried, tightening her grip over his immortal skin. His angelic form was pale, mixing in with the brightness of heaven. It was obvious she cared for him, longed for him to reconsider his decision. But how could he? He did not want to be a servant, he wanted to be served.
Here, there was no day or night, just the constant shine that loomed over heaven.
With a fearsome scowl, he turned to her; golden blonde locks whipped around his face, brushing his forehead. Thoughts of Lucifer’s actions swirled in Lana’s mind, making her question what she should do. She wanted to step in front of him, but panic stopped her. His once soft, gleaming blue eyes had gone cold, resonating with an intense anger.
He grunted. “Why should they worship him? I will show them the truth of things,” he stated, jerking his arm back.
Startled by his reaction, she took a step back. Her silver-black tresses fell across her face, as sobs choked in her throat. She didn’t know if he realized his actions: defying their Lord, their Creator.
“He is our Creator, our…”
“Lana, enough,” he snapped, standing before her; his tone was laced with venom. As he continued to stare at the gates, he was standing with his back to her.
“Lucifer…please,” Lana pleaded again. Her protest cries for him to halt his advances rang in his ear – but he would not stop. Why should I stop? he thought, why should these human beings stay naive to the world they were brought into, not knowing of right and wrong such as our kind does.
He stepped forward, quickening his pace to the pearl-yellow iron that was near his grasp. Lana followed behind him, trying to keep in her cries. She did not understand his thinking process. Humans were recently created; the seventh day had passed, and all were resting.
He then stiffened in his movements, clenching his knuckles until they turned white. He whipped around, looking into the eyes of his beloved.
“Come with me, Lana.” He reached out his hand to her. His ocean eyes locked onto her gaze, wanting to bring her to his side. His defiance, his longing to be recognized by these newly created creatures was starting to consume him even more. To him – it wasn’t just about being noticed – it was power. A power that he too wanted to feel, he craved it, to test these new creatures called “man”.
Lana lowered her gaze, staring intensely at his palm reaching out for her grasp. He stood before her in all his glory, one of God’s most beautiful creatures, even more beautiful than herself. His body was lean, muscular. When she looked upon his face, she saw his soft, yet manly features: his perfect circular face, chiseled jaw and high cheek bones. In their domain, his status was high above hers, and still she didn’t comprehend this need of his. Why must he do this? If I do not stop him… does he not see the folly of his ways?’
He waited a few seconds before agitation started to show across his face. With his hand still held out to her, he furrowed his brows, taking a closer step. No, I will not do this, Lana thought, maneuvering away from him. She shook her head, trying to hold back the tears threatening to stream from her eyes.
A low growl erupted from his throat, as he spread his enormous wings like a bird preparing for flight. “Come with me,” he said harshly, in a dark tone. Fear overtook her. Lana kept staring into the eyes of her lover, unsure of who, or what he was becoming.
“No.” Her words were firm, as her expression started to twist in pain.
“So be it, but this isn’t the end, Lana. I will come for you.” Lucifer locked his gaze onto her hazel irises – one last time – before spinning around and walking towards the gates.
“Lucifer,” she called to him, mustering energy into her voice.
He ignored her calls, walking through the gates and diving towards the earth. Lana collapsed to her knees, letting her tears finally flow. Lucifer, what have you done?
As he made his descent towards the earth – passing through the empty darkness of space and stars – he saw the brown, nearly lifeless planet. The only sign of life came from the sea of green, and two forms caught his sight – a human man and woman.
After that day, Lucifer never returned, but he didn’t forget about the one he left behind.
