My Crappy OC Fanfic #1: Lauron (Laurence x Aaron)

This fanfic is about two of my original characters. The main OCs in this fanfic are Laurence Zila who is a friendly, happy-go-lucky incubus, and Aaron Kafziel, who is stubborn, sarcastic, but also a loyal fallen angel. The two are best friends who basically end up falling in love with each other.Despite most of the characters in this story are mythological entities, the world they live in is pretty modern and they dress like normal human beings as well. Try not to take this very seriously cuz I'm not a very skilled writer and there's probably going to be a shitload of grammar errors. I may not work on this very often cuz I have school and I may sometimes not be very motivated to work on this. I'm simply just writing this fanfic out of boredom, really...
