"No!" She cried, the tears running hotly down her face.
Felix sneered, his knife placed lightly on the the girls mothers neck. After one swift movement, scarlet drops began to form.
"Oh please no! Leave my mommy alone!" The little girl struggled to break free from Felix´s servents grasp, but he held on for dear life, knowing that if he let her go, he would be dead soon too. In a hurry, the man whispered into her ear "Stop moving. Wait five more minutes, ill let you go, then your run like hell, understand me?"
The girl didn't dare nod.
"Now sweet Jessica, how about it? You give me your soul, and ill give you your mother back, seems quit fair to me." Amusement danced in his coal black eyes.
Jessica´s mother gave her a look that told her to not move, and for gods sake, to not sell her soul, but the girl was tempted. Felix might be the enemy, but he had a way about him, something Jessica had always missed, seeing as there was no father or man for that matter, in the house.
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. She could almost feel the energy rolling of Felix´s body, hitting her like title waves.
"I Jessica, will give you my soul, my life, my everything. Never shall I leave your side, never shall I leave you behind."
In a rush, she opened her eyes and started screaming. For an instant her skin felt on fire, her scalp prickled, and her heart ripped open. Then, in the same second, her skin cooled, her scalp soothed, and her heart felt more whole and alive then ever.
She cast a quick look at her mother, and was relived to find her away from Felix and his knife.
"Mom I -" she started.
Her mother spit in her direction. "Devils child." She gagged, turning away swiftly, in the other direction, away from the her daughter, the daughter that had just saved her life...
Jessica could not believe it. She had sold her soul, her everything to save the woman that had raised her, gave her life, a home, love...but that was all over now. Selling her soul to the devil had made her see that.
"Why did she leave?" She asked weakly, shaking.
Felix smiled a drop dead gorgeous smile.
"She thinks you have been tainted by me. The minute you gave me your soul, her mind changed, her body convulsed and she backed away."
Tears sprang to her eyes again.
His smile deepened. "There is always a catch Jessie. I said I would save your mother, how, I did not."
Jessie felt the servents hands loosen. Then with a swift turn, he too, left the dark room, leaving her alone with the Devil.
"You lied to me."
Dark laughter rippled the night. The whole world shivered.
"I made her think you weren't her daughter, and that you were possessed by me. That was the only way to truly save her. I wanted her to think you didn't exist, so she wouldn't wonder." He lifted a finger and traced her cheek bone, leaving goose bumps on her skin.
"But IM not possessed by you! I don't even feel a difference!" Her eyes narrowed, and she felt anger bubble up inside her.
His hands, usually hard as steel turned to velvet in a touch. He lifter her dress and traced the inside of her thigh. A moment later, he lifted his hand.
"This is what I took from you. Your soul, your everything." Slowly, he lifted his fingers to his mouth, and licked away the dark red blood.
