Demon and Fairy WeWriWar 18

Hello Warriors and dear readers, welcome to another Week-end Writing Warrior blog post.
Thank you for all the comments last week, they made me very happy.
I spend yesterday transferring all my data to a new computer and I'm not done with it yet, this is a bit like a nightmare. I'm happy to take a break and seeing your snippets.

You can win a signed copy of Demon and Fairy by participating to Mich's Summer Mystery (WARNING: the mystery may contains Rhinoceros and weird grammar) 
Now let's go to this week snippet, more on Demon and Fairy.

In the previous episodes: Seti was in pain and flying to see Kallisto who is the only person who can help him get ride of it. He remembered how he had met her the first time but unfortunately this time it was late at night and she was nowhere to be seen. Seti couldn't spend the night on the Beach and decided to fly home not noticing that another demon entered her house. We followed Seti and discovered his chaotic bedroom before meeting his family for breakfast. They were arguing about Seti's sister's arranged wedding being canceled by the other family and Samira was crying. Their father said that Seti would just have to apologize. and we learn what Seti thinks about the situation. Seti met the twin's father and gave him an unexpected apology demon style which scared everyone around except Taram who had been spying at the scene from the stairs with his twin brother Torin. After the confrontation, as always when he has a headache, Seti flew to the beach and fell asleep near the tidal pool. When Seti waked, he saw Kallisto facing a snake he managed to get through the barrier and stop it from attacking her, at the moment he is about to kill the snake, Kallisto tells him to stop and had him let the snake on the other side of the barrier. Then Seti had an unexpected reaction but Kallisto didn't going to let him go that easily. Who will convince the other?

I'm cheating again, I have 9 sentences, hush don't tell anyone. (Of course He is Seti)

He was smiling too; he could feel the tension of unknown muscles on his cheeks. He didn’t want to smile, he wanted to show her how bad he was, to make her stop smiling at him like that, to protect her against him, but all he could do was to smile back at her. 
“You’re definitely not being convincing, do something,” he said to himself. 
“I think it’s just fine, if there was a problem they would know and they would take care of it,” she said starting to walk back to the tree. 
Her long hair was waving in her back. Seti followed her, hypnotised. 
“Who are they?” He asked the question without thinking. 
He had to know who the people in her life were and how important they were for her and he wanted to be important for her even if he knew he shouldn’t. 
“My brothers, one is an angel, one is a vampire and one is a wizard,” she turned to him. “It’s a strange combination, isn’t it?”

I hope you enjoyed today's excerpt and see you next week for more of Seti's adventures.
