Her jaw dropped as she made the connection between the suited man’s subtle and sinister eyes and the horrific beast’s eyes from Khaos. The change in color caused confusion, but the evil behind the color confirmed the identity. The gorgeous green-eyed man was one in the same with the blood fueled, concrete mongrel. The picture of him flashed before her eyes and she was struck with bewilderment. She had witnessed and been a part of what, before Eleftheria, would have been completely unimaginable. The things she had seen and experienced revolutionized her entire life as she knew it, and changed her perception of the world. This, however, still baffled her. The fact that Ekluo, being the most evil soul she ever came in contact with, could be so stunning and look as human as she did was astonishing. His face was perfect. The beard outlining his jaw was faultlessly defined accenting the strength in the structure of his features. His deep green eyes were warm and compelling. They matched seamlessly with his deep green tie that was tucked into his clean and crisp suit jacket. He was tall with a muscular build. His hair lay on his head in a distressed but flawless fashion. His black hair made his green eyes shine with a magical charm. Through his beauty, Elizabeth saw what Johnathon saw that night in the parking lot and again at his father’s store. She saw blackness beneath his eyes that created an evil aura. There was a hollow pit in those full green eyes. Louis, in all of his brilliance, was a horrific demon. He was Ekluo.
Seeing the look in her eyes, Johnathon responded, "I know."
"What does this mean," she asked intensely.
"I don't know."
Their heads shot to the right where a loud bang was heard. Louis' hand was on the glass of the passenger side window.
"I just want to talk to you, Johnathon. We could be great friends."
Louis was smiling as he spoke as if he knew the feelings he was creating in them, and it gave Elizabeth the chills. Johnathon, ignoring him, quickly put the vehicle in reverse and put his foot on the gas. As the vehicle sped off, Louis' smile vanished and the sinister expression returned.
"Oh, you don't want to do that, Johnny," he said to himself with a threatening edge in his voice.
