Have you ever wondered if the world has another place for people who have died? I've wondered this from age ever since my grandmother died when I was around four, my family called that place 'heaven'. My family taught me the ways of the world, the rights and the wrongs and if I made the mistakes that were called 'sins' I would go to 'hell'. It seemed fake to me, why would a person who made mistakes get punished for it?
All of us are only human, and we all make mistakes so why does it seem so disgraceful for hating someone for a few mistakes?
I can't get this thought out of my head, what if someone liked me died to young to make those mistakes right again? Would you give them that chance to make things right for them again?
I felt a tap on my shoulder as my eyes opened as my parents looked at me and looked back up at the priest. They sighed and started to sing with the rest of the crowd as I unlaced my palms looking up at the man on the cross on top of the podium.
I parted my lips as I closed my eyes singing with the song, "He can settle any sea, but that doesn't mean he will~" I looked down as I sighed, I heard everyone singing in the church, "Give them a chance to make things right again..." I whispered to myself. I knew no one could hear me, and it was impossible that anyone could hear me, but I hoped.
These innocent souls that were misjudged got sent to hell, never able to prove themselves.
The table was quiet as we ate dinner, my brother picked at his food as my father looked up from his plate looking at me. "So how's your boyfriend doing? Is he focusing on his studies?" I looked over at him as he looked at me, boredom filling his eyes.
"Yes father, Alex is doing fine and he is very much focusing on his studies." I took a bite of my dinner as my father nodded his head. It was normal to have a quiet dinner with no one talking. It was a fake family in my eyes, and I know my life would be this way if I stayed in this family or even with the person that I was dating. I have to do something, I have to change my fate.
The warmth of the underworld seemed to be cooler today, I turned my head to the door as one of my imps walked in. He was shaken, he looked at me as he stared at me, I growled as a bright light shined opening the door wider as God walked through the door.
I started laughing as he glared at me, I got out of my chair, walking around my desk. "God! My dear old friend, please come and sit it's been too long." I smiled as he walked over sitting in the chair staring at me. I sat down again smiling wider, he placed down a folder on my desk sighing.
"A young girl made a prayer today. She wanted your 'kind' to have a second chance at redeeming yourselves, what do you think?" I looked at the paper stunned at what he said.
"Someone wants a demon to redeem themselves? That's kinda pitiful don't you think? One of your beloved children wanting to keep the bad out of hell, never thought I'd see the day." I sat back in my chair as the old man got up from his chair, he smiled at me placing his hands on the desk.
"I say we make a deal. Pick one of your demons to live with this young girl, if the girl is able to change their heart I will grant you to be able to send some of your demons to heaven to be changed by my angels." I sat up, smiling.
"And what if the girl fails? What will I get in return? I really need some fun in my life." he sighed stroking his white beard as he thought until his hand stopped.
"I'll erase the demons memory and the people he meets, but hers will stay. She would go insane if she decides to remove him from her life, what do you think?" I stood up smiling widely at the old man.
"Your on old man, now I just have to decide who will go to see this young girl.” I sat back down as the old man started walking towards the door. “Pick them soon… Lucifer…” he closed the door as the room grew colder. I stared at the door as my imp looked at me a little stunned.
“What do we do now sir?” I smiled, getting up I walked towards the window that showed my city with blue buildings and the beautiful night sky with millions of stars. “Get me all of the files of the incubuses, let’s see if this girl really has what it takes to change the heart of a demon of lust.”
“Lucifer, you sent me letter saying you found the one?” Lucifer smiled as God walked through the door. I stood by Lucifer as God looked at me. “You decided to make the game a little harder I see.” Lucifer stood up looking at him.
“He was in highschool when he became a demon. So kinda perfect.”God looked at me with a cold stare. “I remember him, he died a few months ago after commiting suicide after killing two people. Hades Vonhower. 17 year old, depression with many bullying problems. You chose him because?”
“We both have a history of depression. That’s all he told me other than her name is Rachelle and she’s 15 years old.” God smiled as he walked closer setting down papers on the table. “Here's the papers you need to get him into the school, everyone will think he’s just the new kid in the school. His name is ‘Hades Undtill’ for purposes of keeping him secret. You’ll stay with the girl until we have seen a change in you heart or if it takes to long you go back and you never remember she exists.” God started towards the door as Lucifer smiled and whispered under his breath. ‘Let the game begin…’
