It's hard to kill a pretty angel. Especially if she's smart. 

All of my life I have been a disappointment to my father, Lucifer. Last summer, I was so embarassing he banished me from hell. It seems like I have a conscience, and that is unspeakable. I agree. The only way to cleanse myself is to kill the purest being in the universe - an angel.

I found Aster in New York City. Now I just need to figure out when - and how - to kill her.

Upon investigating, he meets Drake, a dragon taken human form, who has come to his world with a mission: restore the planet's power and prevent all life on it from dying. While it seems like a great task to undertake, Drake quickly proves himself in need of a little help... finding out where the exit is. Deciding that regardless of if Drake is serious or not, traveling with the directionally-challenged dragon will give him opportunities to find new treasures and explore ancient Ruins. And so begins the journey of Nate and Drake on their quest to save the world.


Warning: the story does not contain the harem tag, as for the moment, I do not know if it will become a harem or not. It does, however, hold the potential to become a harem story. I will know for sure by the end of the second arc, Water, and if it does turn into a harem, then I will apply the tag.


There will be five main arcs, with potential for two additional arcs after.


Posting schedule: every fifth day (may increase later).

Sneak Peek:

Next to the kitchen, there was a small squared table and two wooden chairs, each made from different wood. The bookshelf behind those contained a decent amount of books.

I stood up to take a closer look at them and even opened a few out of curiosity. While I could read most of them just fine, some of the oldest-looking books were written in a language I didn't recognize.

"Hm? Was my hand always blue?"

I didn't remember. In fact, I couldn't recall anything about myself, not even my name. Inspecting the rest of my body, I found that it was the same all over. I didn't feel sick; quite the opposite. Still, my blue skin felt out of place for some reason. Trying to find an answer to my situation, I kept investigating the odd room.
