The Monster Lady and the Paladin
The city was destroyed. Her family was dead. Her friend was murdered right before her eyes. Veronica tried to run away but to no avail. The moment her eyes met ‘it’, her life was turned upside down.
“She’s already been assimilated.”
A man grabbed her by the hair and looked at her disdainfully as she struggled.
“Do you want to live?”
“Ugh, cough. Ugh.”
“Do you want to live even if you have to roll in the fires of hell?”
“Let me go.”
“Answer me. If you wish to die, I will kill you painlessly.”
She doesn’t want to die. She didn’t want to die yet. She had just been reborn.
“Then ask me for help.” The man, who seemed to read her thoughts, sneered. The burning abyss was staring straight at her.
“I want to live… please, help me.”
She didn’t know until then. That his breath and his saliva, filled with his holy power, will save her.
She became a God in place of a vanished God.
