Take one look at Andariel Itherael and youd never know she was fallen. The beautiful librian had such subtle differences in her looks. Most people couldnt even tell she was a fallen angel. Her hair was golden, and her wings were a rather light grey. One could only tell she wasnt quite bright enough if she were standing next to her sister, who looked rather similar but just a touch more shine to her golden hair, and whiter wings.
One might wonder what made her fall at all. To most, she was nice, and those silver eyes always held the same joy and friendliness of any other angel, so wrath most certainly was not one of her sins. The truth is, as a child, she had come to envy her sister, Auriel. It was not an immensely deep envy, it was always just the little things. Auriel was always the standout sister. She was just a little prettier, just a touch faster to help their parents, just a bit smarter and just a touch more popular in school.
One day, just one of those days when everything was going just right for her sister and not so right for Andariel, Andariel let the frustration get to her and complaining to her sister about how perfect she was, just enough that her wings seemed to fade in their brightness just a little. She remembered the shock of her parents that day, and felt rather ashamed. But it had been just the start to a rebellious streak in her youth.
Once she had just a touch of sin, there were others that began to whisper in her subconscious, and the voice of Legos Light seemed to become less strong in her mind. Hints of lust here and there, little bits of selfishness bleeding in here and there. She was still nice, still an angel, but there werent a lot of angels caught hiding porn under their pillows.
Nowadays she reflected on those times as being rather silly. Of course, she had become a very different angel when she moved to her sign country, without the boundries of her Libran angel parents. Without having to compare herself to her sister all the time, she was very confident and cheerful, and all that angelic friendliness could be turned into quite a seductress when she met someone special. She also didnt worship Lego, and was not quite sure she even existed, becoming something of an agnostic.
Yes, the happy angelic librarian would certainly have changed many peoples minds about what all a fallen angel could be. So happy and warm like a normal angel, and very helpful and kind to those that came to her for help, though, perhaps especially so for the good looking ones. She could not count the number of times she had gotten a date after work when someone struck her fancy on coming into the library.
Andariel looked up from her desk as she heard the door open, and in walked in a woman who made her mind go instantly into a gutter no pure angels head would ever be able to go to. Long red hair, a body to die for, wearing all black, leather boots and an open leather jacket that revealed a tube top as the only thing covering the womans breasts. Andariel may have stared a moment to long before smiling warmly. Hello, and welcome to the Aquarian National Library, she said. Can I help you?
The woman smiled back, showing a little hint of fangs in that smile. There was something very primal but attractive in that smile. I was hoping to find something on demon breeds, she replied, taking a look at the name pin on her shirt. Would you happen to have that, Miss Itherael?
I do believe we have a few books on the subject, she said, and with a little wink she added, And you can call me Andariel. She stepped out of her regular workspace, motioning her to follow. May I ask your name?
Im Noel, she said.
Pleased to meet you.
The pleasure is all mine. Andariel, leading the way, did not see the wickedness in the womans grin.
They found a number of books on the subject, Noel picked one on known breeds of Archdemons. She did not go sit elsewhere, instead preferring to look over the book at Andariels desk. Andariel didnt mind, though she had to continue in her job, helping anyone that came in, she got to come back to a very beautiful woman who she often caught eyeing her when she looked up from the book. There was a natural attraction here.
She did notice the woman to be studying two parts of the book in particular, a section on Dark Demons and a section on Superbia Demons. Was she a demon? Andariel knew a demon could be dangerous, but a lot of their reputation was overstimulated. Many demons were selfish, sure, but not all of them were hyper murderers and destructive beasts. After all, if they all were, they would have been arrested and exterminated in most of the kingdoms. Her skin was a bit pale, and she most certainly had some sharp fangs.
Eventually, Noel finished the book and put it back where it came from, and stopped back at the front desk. Thanks for the help, and it was nice to meet you. Perhaps Ill see you again.
Andariel thought about it, and decided she couldnt let this one get away without giving her a try. Maybe sooner then youd think. I get off at six tonight. If you arent busy, would you want to have dinner with me? Noel looked surprised, but smiled and nodded.
I think Id like that, she said. Ill meet you outside at six then. Until then, bye.
Andariel had a private moment of victory in her head. Got a date tonight! She continued on with her work, and five minutes before closing she got herself ready, freshened up her make up, made sure no one was trying to stay passed closing and made sure the janitor was fine for the rest of the work day before heading out. She waited outside a moment, looking around. Her date didnt appear to be here yet.
It was quiet on the streets, and she was the only one around. She heard footsteps coming and turned, looking at Noel as she was walking, Noels eyes intently upon her. Andariel could never feel bad about anyone looking so lustfully at her, it made her feel flattered, and she returned the gaze with a bright angelic smile, with those loving eyes of a friendly angel willing to make everything in the world a better place.
Noel stopped, suddenly stunned. Andariel giggled at her face there, she looked suddenly young and adorable in that moment. Noel blushed, and it was the cutest thing Andariel had ever seen. Am I just that stunning, Noel? Noel blinked and nodded. That earned another giggle from the fallen angel. You are adorable. She came closer and took Noels hand, noticing now that there were claws there had there always been claws? Surely shed have noticed the black claws before But then, she didnt stare at Noels hands as much as other features.
She took Noel off to a restaurant, and they chatted over dinner. It was funny, earlier she would have thought Noel to be more confident, but whatever her smile did made Noel seem much more shy then her original imaginings. But she did get the girl to talk about herself a bit. Noel was indeed a demon, her mother being a Dark Demon and her father a Superbia Demon. Andariel confessed that she was a fallen angel rather than a fully pure one.
Andariel was beginning to get the impression this was Noels first date, and knowing demons aged rather fast, she thought Noel might be a bit younger then originally imagined. Well, she certainly looked like an adult. After dinner, she was walked home by Noel, who seemed a little unsure. Andariel thought maybe the girl was unsure what to do next, and Andariel wondered about the ethics of dating a demon who was physically adult but might legally have still been considered underage.
She stopped at her apartment door. Well, heres my place, she said.
Noel took a look at the door and seemed to be thinking. Well Um Tonight was fun, she said. I guess I should get going, as its a little late.
Andariel thought about it and decided to go the extra step. Unless you wanted to stay the night.
Noel blinked. W-what? That shy blush was irresistible to Andariel. A virgin demon at her doorstep, Andariel decided to sees the moment and lean forward, giving the girl a kiss. Noel looked stunned, but certainly not displeased. But very, very stunned, standing absolutely still. Andariel grinned, thinking that might have even been the demonesses first kiss. She opened her door and wrapped an arm and a wing around Noel, guiding her inside and closing the door.
