You shivered as you walked up the bridge to Fortuna castle. You were helping with killing the demons that made their way to the human world. It was snowing hard, which was weird. A demon must be behind it. You walked into the castle, not believing what you saw. The entire floor of the castle was covered in icicle spears. There was little room to move. You managed to wall jump up to the upper floor with scarcely any ice. Most of the doors were blocked, limiting your options you wandered down some hallways, searching for any signs of life. When you rounded a corner, demons were stalking through the halls. You pulled out your sword, and ran at the demons, easily killing them. As you walked down the halls, you noticed how nice the castle looked, before it was sort of deserted. You were looking for a switch for the bridge leading to the forest. Dante, the famous devil hunter, was heading this way and you worked along side him sometimes. You had a crush on him, but never told him. He seemed busy anyway and didn't look too interested in dating because of work.
You kept walking until you reached the courtyard. It seemed deserted, until you saw a faint glow. You walked a little closer. Hovering over the ground were two girls that were glowing red. They looked at you and waved, almost as if they wanted you to get closer to them. You pulled out your sword and stayed a good distance away incase it was a trap. Suddenly, something moved in the distance where the snow was coming from. A huge frog jumped out at you and would of swallowed you if you didn't jump out of the way in time.
"oh great" you muttered. You pulled out your gun and started shooting at the demon. You dodged the ice it threw at you and you finished it with a blow to the head with your sword. It disappeared in a puff of smoke. You put your weapons away and continued to the bridge where you could exit the castle. You shivered again, hoping that the forest of ruin would be warmer.
You crossed the bridge, walking into the entrance of the forest. It seemed peaceful. You heard rustling in the bushes, and these lizard things jumped out. You pulled your sword out and started fighting them. When one died, another appeared, making it impossible to defeat them all, they just kept coming. Suddenly you tripped, and the lizard demons jumped on top of you and kept biting and tackling you. You made one last attempt at fighting them by shooting you gun off once, before you lost consciousness.
When you woke up, someone was holding you. You opened your eyes, seeing Dante looking at you. "good, your finally up". He set you on your feet. You looked around, a little paranoid from earlier.
"don't worry, the demons are gone" he said, smirking slightly. You rolled your eyes, starting to walk into the forest. You heard footsteps and noticed Dante following you.
"what are you doing?" you asked, slightly annoyed.
"making sure you don't harm youself after what just happened." You sighed.
"I can take care of myself, thank you very much". you said, picking up the pace, hoping Dante wouldn't notice the slight blush on your face.
"fine, but before you go, after you finish up your mission, want to come to my office after? I'll treat you to pizza" he said with a smile. You couldn't help but smile back.
"sure" you said. Then suddenly Dante walked in front of you and pulled you into a kiss. You were shocked, then kissed him back.
When he pulled away, he said "I'll be waiting for you" then started walking to the fortuna castle. "and I love you" he said, tossing those words over his shoulder before disappearing. You started walking into the forest, with a smile on your face. Dante certainly made your day amazing.
