"YOU TWO IMBECILES!" A voice boomed and echoed throughout hell. "BOTH OF YOU! MY MOST POWERFUL AND TRUSTWORTHY DEMONS! Do you realize WHAT YOU HAVE DONE?!"
A cloaked figure and an armored soldier are kneeling with fear fueling in their undead bodies, flinching at their King's yelling.
The King has many names, Lucifer, Satan, Hades. He stepped off his throne frustrated and pulling on his horns. "I can't believe you two, out of all the billions of demons in hell, BROKE THE NUMBER ONE RULE!"
"Lucifer..." The armored figure muttered. "We-"
"SHUT UP, WAR! I don't want your fucking excuses." Satan whipped his tail in the air. He took a deep breath. "Have you and Death created offspring?"
The two demons looked at each other and sighed. Satan can take a hint.
He sighed. "I can't believe you two."
Death bowed his head lower. "Lucifer. We were careless fools. We would accept any punishment you cast upon us." said Death.
Both kneeling demons shuddered on the thought of the punishments. The punishments they witnessed beforehand upon other demons were horrifying, even for them. Now they broke the number one rule of never ever mate with humans. They can only imagine how painful and torturous their punishments can be.
Yet to their surprise, Satan merely waved his arm. "Forget it. Torture won't work on you two." He sighed. "The process already happened. It is too late for us to do anything to demolish it. If it were other smaller demons, I can just kill the children in their womb. Yet, it just has to be the two of you."
War sighed. "Lucifer. Even though it hurts us to have our children dead, we understand the need to have them killed. Death and I will not blame you."
"No War. That's not what I meant." said Satan, as he sat back on his throne. "I cannot kill your children. You two are my most powerful demons of the Underworld. Death, you handle the human souls. War, you manage the sins. The two main sources of what keeps the Underground alive. Your offsprings have immense power, and their bodies are what keeps it locked from the human world. If I kill them, it will cause destruction and imbalance in the human world. It can cause the whole Underground to crumble." Satan explained.
Death and War stood up, just realizing what they have done. "Lucifer..."
"Look, for now we need an idea to keep them from having their own children, and having their future generations inheriting their powers." Satan closed his eyes. "Any ideas?"
"Well..." Death started. "Our offsprings will be male."
War nodded. "They won't have the ability to reproduce if there aren't any women around."
Satan grunted and opened his eyes. "They cannot love other humans. No matter male or female."
"Why not?" War asked, confused.
Death sighed. "Remember War, they still have their demon sides. We never had a demi-demon ever to exist. We don't know what will happen if their demon sides develop and expose themselves. If they love another human, how will they explain it? How will the humans react? Knowing they are part human, their emotions will definitely affect the demon part of their bodies. Then who knows what they can do. We cannot risk it."
Satan turned his head towards Death. "Do you have any ideas?"
Death looked apologetically at War. "We may prevent the possibility of reproduction, the dangers of emotional instability, and demon expository to the minimum by...having them like each other instead."
"What?!" War exclaimed.
Satan nodded. "I agree."
"But..." War doesn't like it, for he wants his child to live as normally as possible. Yet, the fact that his child is already a half demon doesn't help with anything. Death and Satan looked at the self-conflicted demon.
War can't think of an excuse. "Love is Cupid's job."
"Cupid won't be touching demi-demons, War." Satan said. "I will make sure of it. You two cast a subconscious attraction on your children. It may be powerful enough to grow into love at least."
He sighed. "Alright. I suppose it is the best idea."
Satan got off his throne and walked towards the two. "Good. Now, I suppose this is as good as a punishment can get for the both of you. Now you two have more work now." He said, putting a hand on each shoulder. "Doing your current work as Death and War, and being a father. You two will have to watch over your children, but you two are under strict orders to not expose yourself until they are at the age of 18."
Satan paused. He glared at the two of them. "And you two are forbidden to see your human mates right after you've done your deed. Now go!" ordered Satan.
Death and War have no choice but to agree. "Yes, Lucifer." They said, and disappeared into red smoke and green fog. The red smoke trailed to America, shaping into War. The green fog flew to Ireland, forming Death. The two demons explained the situation to the two pregnant women, and big their goodbyes. They laid their hands on the pregnant bumps, casting the said subconscious attraction upon their children towards the other demi-demon. "I'm sorry." They said in unison, and disappeared back to the gates of hell.
Walking back into the Underground, Death and War can hear the mocking and the contempt from the other smaller demons.
"Look at them, breaking the number one most important rule."
"I know right. And Satan expects us to look up to them."
"How the fuck can they let sentiment get to them?"
"I can feel the sentiment radiating off them. So pathetic."
Death and War ignored the murmuring and mumblings. "So." War started. "What are you going to name your child?"
"Dark. I assume you let her give the human name as well?"
"Yes...It is the least we can do." Death sighed.
War pat Death's shoulders. "Let's look after each other's children as well." Death nodded and shook War's hand.
"Now we wait." said Death.
