Arthur finished his exercises and his endurance and strength points increased by one each, he felt a slight change in his body, but that was all, he still couldn't lift a car.
After his exercises they decided to go and buy Arthur new clothes, his mother wanted him to get rid of his old clothes.
They left the house and headed to a store not far from their home. The shopping went on as usual, every time Arthur tried on a new outfit the employees were fascinated by him.
Arthur was 16 years old and nobody could say that he was ugly, his black hair as well as his eyes gave a sensation of mystery, his physiognomy was thin but not too thin, since he invested his points in strength his body began to change, when passing by the stores in the malls someone would always take a look at him, his hair was a little long so they decided to cut it a little. And so the time passed.
Back at home Arthur was afraid to sleep, he still had memories of the nightmare he had at John's house, even though last night he hadn't, he was still afraid, what if today he had it again?
Pushing the thoughts out of his head he decided it was best to stop thinking about all that.
"Whatever God wants" said Arthur and so he fell asleep.
Opening his eyes Arthur could see that he was in a room with his arms and legs bound, and in front of him was a table and several strange instruments.
"What should I wear today?" Asked a woman standing in front of the table.
"No, no, no" Arthur tried to move, seeing the woman and the table in front of him he remembered what would happen next.
He tried to get free of the chains but he couldn't, he knew that trying to talk to the woman wouldn't help either.
Shit, it's just a dream, it shouldn't hurt that much,' Arthur tried to convince himself, but it didn't do much good.
Then the woman finally started to move and stopped in front of Arthur and looked into his eyes and said.
"I think it's time for the next phase, this equipment is no longer any good, I'd better show you the power of the punishers "
"Next phase...?" Arthur tried to speak but couldn't he felt his body heavy and for a minute he blacked out.
When he opened his eyes he was in a house, lying on a couch looking around he could see a girl that looked to be about 8 years old, he then got closer and finally he could see the girl's face, and he saw what looked like her sister, but for some reason she looked younger.
"Emy?" he called, that was Emily's nickname.
"Ah, hello brother, come on it's about time, we are going to the park with mommy and daddy" Emily replied.
"Park?" Arthur then looked at his hands and could see that they were small, it looked like the time of his 10 years old.
"What's going on? How do I look younger? Was that all a dream?"
Just then his mother and father appeared, they were wearing normal clothes, without any equipment. "Come on children, don't forget the basket with the snacks for the picnic.
I guess I was dreaming anyway, it wouldn't make sense for me to die and then come back to life,' Arhtur thought.
They took the basket with the food and headed for the door, and Arthur was the first to leave.
"What happened here?" he asked in disbelief at the sight in front of him.
The city of Partria was one of the largest in existence, one of the safest, one of the best to live in. How could it be in this state, in front of Arthur was what had once been a city, fallen buildings, bodies on the ground, overturned cars, and much of the city was in flames.
Looking back, trying to see his parents and sister, he could see a scene worse than the scene of the burning city itself.
His house was no longer there and half of his father's body was lying on the ground and the other half was no longer there, his mother who had been smiling earlier was missing one of her arms at his father's side.
"Ahhhhhh" frightened Arthur started to scream.
"Don't scream brother " spoke a voice behind him.
"Emil-..." his voice faded away seeing the bizarre scene in front of him.
"Don't scream, it was your fault after all" said Emily smiling looking at Arthur without one of her eyes.
>In the Scheuer's living room<
"I don't know, something is different about him, I want you to investigate 'The Illuminati' if they did anything to my son I will make them pay" said Naomi in front of a hologram
"I will try to investigate, but as you know they are quite discreet, I don't know if I will get anything" replied the woman in the hologram.
"Thank you" replied Naomi ending the call.
"Arthur what have they done to you?" Naomi asked herself.
She was sitting on the couch thinking about her son, she felt that he was hiding something, something he didn't want to say, his behavior was strange he usually stayed silent for a long time thinking, she thought it was better to wait for him to tell her when the time was right, after all she was also hiding things.
Naomi was lost in thought and a shout brought her out of her reveries.
"That's Arthur's voice" she said, going up the stairs to his room.
Arriving in the room she was surprised to see Emily standing there as if she didn't know what to do while Arthur was writhing on the bed and screaming.
"Arthur, Arthur wake up, wake up" Naomi said shaking Arthur.
It took a while before Arhtur finally opened his eyes and the moment he looked at her and Emily he began to cry.
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry " he said crying.
"It wasn't my fault"
"Of course it wasn't your fault honey" Naomi replied even though she didn't know what he was talking about.
Emily seeing her brother crying approached him and hugged him as well.
They continued until he finally calmed down. But she thought it would be better to ask him another time about what had happened.
Time passed and Arthur fell asleep again, Emily lay next to Arthur and slept as well, Naomi was the only one who stayed awake thinking about what could have happened to Arthur while he was gone.
'I swear I will go after you guys' she thought remembering the 'illuminati'.
The night passed quietly and the day soon arrived. Early in the morning Walter Arthur's father arrived as well.
>East of Partria<
"Hey old man where is the boy?" A man asked, he was a soldier under Krull's orders
"Stop torturing the man, and use your skill soon we are wasting time" said Krull
"As you wish" replied the soldier, he could simply use his ability to read the man's memories, but he preferred to torture him, the name of the person tortured was Jhon.

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.
