Work started as normal. My Lord arrived by the rooftop, he never landed since his office was on the top floor, he just took the quickest route. He was no-nonsense, direct. I was to assist him as he met with locals. Mostly the news media and business partners. Humans were always so curious about angels, but even more so when it came to Archangels. Since his meeting with the hunter Elena, my Lord had changed, but my loyalty had not. He'd become more...human I believe was the word Lijuan had used. In my eyes, he grew as a man and as a power. He had killed his fair share of enemies. After the meeting with the humans which lasted much too long in my opinion for the same stupid things, the seven were to meet for our orders. Lord Raphael always only had seven bodyguards. I was the Oldest of the seven the Head of security and the closest friend Raphael had. Venom, a vampire made by the Archangel Neha who has a pair of unique eyes that resembles a snake was the youngest. Naasir was a unique cat-like vampire-like creature born of a madman's experience was the third vampire in our group. Galen stayed at the refuge, keeping an eye on everything there, he is the weapon's master. Illium, the blue-winged pretty boy was the heart of the Seven. He was always light-hearted, laughing, all to hide his sad past. Aodhan was the artist, both in battle and on an easel, his unique wings looked like millions of crushed diamonds in the light. And finally, there was the black wings of Jason, the Lord's spymaster. We all did our job very well.
We all got our tasks for the time being, I was to stay here in case someone needed to speak with Raphael. I left him in his office as his consort arrived, I pissed her off for the hell of it by seducing her with my scent lure, making her body desire me while her head and heart hated my very existence. Dodging the dagger she threw at me, I winked and left for the lobby. The women at the front desk stood up and saluted me, flirting. Always. I don't remember if I even ever used my ability on them, nor did I care, if I needed a snack, they wouldn't refuse me. The only person to have ever refused me was now tied to my Lord as his consort.
"Dmitry, Sir? There's someone here to see you."
Pulled from my thoughts, I looked at the tiny blond woman that spoke to me. A lobby attendant. I sighed as she blushed under my gaze.
"Well? Where is this person?"
She jumped and walked towards a woman standing in the bright lobby. I didn't think I knew her.
