What the hell happened? What is this place? Please help me!
These were my questions as soon as I arrived in this "Place", trapped, scared and helpless,
I couldn't see anything in the room, only the sounds of the chains gave me an idea of what
was happening, after a while I began to calm down, and my memories slowly began to return,
memories that I wish would remain forgotten.
Through these memories I found out that my name is Arthur, and I am 15 years old, and I alsofound out what happened to me, I was coming back from school when I was approached bysome people, and they were visibly angry with me for something I had done, after being beatenand tortured, I was thrown into the street, but it was too late, my healing ability couldn't heal me,and eventually I lost consciousness, so I woke up here in this place.
Some time passed, and finally I heard the sound of heavy footsteps approaching, unable to seeanything, I concentrated on the sound of footsteps that were getting closer and closer.
The owners of the footsteps had been talking about something I didn't understand. And finallythey opened something that judging by the sound was a door, maybe the place I was in was in fact a cell.
Just when I thought I would be happy to finally see the light my hope was soon gone, and gaveway to despair.
Entering the room were two humanoid beings with reddish skin, a small horn and several scarson their faces and bodies.
'Demons' , I thought.
Of course I knew they weren't humans the moment they entered, monsters became common after the Great War just as people started to have 'abilities'. But the Demons were no ordinary monsters, they had intelligence.
"Who is that?" one of them asked.
"I don't know, we were just told to take him."
Taking off the chains they quickly lifted Arthur up and began to carry him out of the cell.
Seeing all this Arthur gave up on a possible escape, he wouldn't stand a chance with his healing ability, he decided it was better to find out what was going on, because from the looks of it they didn't want to kill him since he was still alive.
Outside he had a better idea of the place he was in and a shiver ran down his spine, he was in along corridor with several cells, and next to each cell was a demonic looking guard, the wholeplace had a dark color with some lights in front of each cell that gave an air of mystery andhorror.
They walked for a few minutes and it seemed as if they were walking in circles, because the cellswere identical from the outside, only the guard was different. And finally Arthur could see theway out.
Outside, his fear deepened, for in a line several people were walking in a row, all with lifelesslooks on their faces, and even when the demons beside them struck them with whips they keptwalking, and straight ahead they came to a cliff with a river of pure lava flowing below, and theneveryone in the line when they reached the end of the cliff simply threw themselves into the lavawithout the slightest resistance.
After the Cataclysm known as the Great War, the presence of abilities, portals, and monstersbecame commonplace, and as humanity awaited its end, there appeared those who calledthemselves "God's envoys," the so-called Angels, who changed the direction of the war withtechnology, abilities, and by empowering some humans.
So Arthur always thought that if there were Angels, there would also be Demons, and religions always made it clear that there were two paths Heaven and Hell. And now he had a brief idea of where he was, but he still held on to a thread of hope, that all of this was not real, it could all be someone's ability from one of his attackers who knows.The Demons continued to follow Arthur in silence until he decided to ask the guards.
"Where am I?"
The guards looked at each other and started laughing.
"Hahahahaha I won" one of them said.
"Shit, you fucking human, I won't torture you right now as I don't want to touch the punisher's toy"said the other
"I knew he wouldn't handle the curiosity and would eventually ask before he got to the punisher, humans are weak and curious beings" replied the one who had won the bet.
"Well, since you made me lose the bet, you should at least know the fate that awaits you, you are in Hell" said the demon.
Arthur lowered his head, he already had a vague suspicion of where he was, but how did he die?
Did he really die? And what had he done to end up in hell?
The guards interpreted Arthur's silence as fear and began to laugh again.
Arthur was lost in thought, and didn't notice that they had reached a building similar to the otherone, but this one, even though they were outside they could still hear the desperate screams.
They kept walking until they opened a not very large room with chains for legs and hands where Arthur was held.On the other side of the room was what appeared to be a woman, her back was turned and when the guards left she finally turned and looked Arthur in the eye, her body was beautiful, her physiognomy looked human, but her devilish smile made it quite clear that this was not the case. As she approached, Arthur began to feel fear again and all the feelings he had been trying to repress since the moment he found out he might be dead began to get out of control, and tears threatened to fall as he began to ask her not to do anything to him, after all he was only a 15 year old boy.
The woman stopped in front of him, and punched him in the face, but it was no ordinary punch,for this one took pieces of Arthur's own face.
"Aahhhhhggggg, stop, stop, please," pleaded Arthur tearfully.
"My name is Kril, I am the punisher who will be responsible for you, I believe you already knowthat you are in Hell and here you will be punished for your sins" said Kril with a macabre smile.
"Sins? What sins? Please don't hit me anymore, I shouldn't be here, I'm not even dead..."
"Quiet, your dog" said kril while kicking his stomach .
"Everyone who is here should be here, and if you are here it is because you deserve it.Now please, support me and entertain me for a while, for until you become a demon, or fall intooblivion I will take care of you" she said as she licked her lips
"No, no, no, please, if you hit me one more time I won't survive" said Arthur between tears.
"Relax, you won't die, but you will feel a lot of pain. Kukukuku, now let's begin.
And so began Arthur's hellish days of torture in hell, he suffered torture every day, but he didn'tdie, after all he was already dead. After a while he began to think about everything, his family, his school, his city, then he forgot how much time had passed, after all he was trapped in the torture room the whole time, where Kril every day planned new methods, each time more cruel.
The plot follows the story of Arthur a 15 year old boy who after waking up in a dark cell,
discovers that he has died and is in Hell. After years of being tortured, just as he is about to fall
into oblivion, someone comes along with an unexpected proposal, "Become the next Lucifer",
a proposal that will allow him to return to Earth, and perhaps take revenge on his murderers, a
proposal from Lucifer himself.
