A demon’s story: Pandemonium (Conclusion)

Today is the day I face the tribunal that has been raised to see into my case. After weeks of been on the run I was finally caught in a sloppy move; extracted from my vessel, dragged to purgatory and held hostage under extreme conditions. My wings were clipped with casted iron, which caused me … Continue reading A demon’s story: Pandemonium (Conclusion)

A demon’s story: Invitation to Ihiala

Two weeks have gone by and I’m still in hiding. I haven’t heard anything from anyone in authority concerning my ordeal.

We were a peaceful people, caring little for wars and modernity. We were content to till the earth and revel in natures blessings. We were content … Continue reading The Exorcist ~ Part I

Asterisked

ASTERISKED Idomo surveyed the list of humans he was assigned to destroy with a malevolent gleam in his eyes. It was a long list, six thousand, six hundred and sixty-six beings long. He had all kinds of deliciously wicked things planned for them: accidents, chronic sicknesses, retrenchment, heartbreak, disappointments, and massive crop failures; even a … Continue reading Asterisked

The Prayer Warrior

The Prayer Warrior

Kola went round the house again checking all the doors and windows, making double sure they were locked and barricaded. The single candle which was three inches in diameter burnt brightly, casting its light into every corner of the one room apartment.
