*** HORNS BEHIND ***

** 500 YEARS AGO **

Satiler found a job in hell, he was so distracted, he did not pay attention to instructions, so he was fired. But evil gives always second chances, so he was hired one more time.

** PRESENT DAY **

Mark was having a good day, until he saw his crush. He was not used to talk to.

-Do you want to help me?-Mark asked.

-Who are you?-she replied.

-I'm Mark, and I like girls like you.

-I HAVE A BOYFRIEND.

-Really? so, I can not give you a French kiss?

-No.

-But what if you kiss me?

-Go away!

-I will, safe in the knowledge I have give you a chance to love me.

-Fuck off.

-I SWEAR I WILL DATE YOU SOMEDAY.

** AN UNEXPECTED WISH BECOMES REAL **

There was the 19 years old Mark, eating frenchs chips with plenty of ketchup. He was having a cosplayer stage. He had his room full of anime posters and stuff. A friend of him was helping him with some custom, Halloween was a week away.

-This is the uglest custom I have ever seen-she says.

-You mean it's awesome?-Mark asked.

-No, it will not be awesome for sure, is ugly af.

-But, I have worked hard to do it, I don't see it the way your eyes does.

-If you wear this on Hallowen, I will not be your friend any more.

-Are you kidding, right? You are my only friend mom.

-I'm not. Do you remember the others Halloween customs you have wear along the past years? It's just embarrassing.

-Let me alone! I don't want you to be here anymore!-Mark was frustrated.

He lock the door and fell asleep feeling so lonely, with his fingers were covered with ketchup and almost without a reason to live.

(A DREAM) -Welcome to the new Hell Office, I´m Satiler.

-Is this a dream?-Mark said.

-It is. But this is more like a lucid dream.

-Ok, then you become a girl now.

-No. This dream can not be a wet dream.

-I just wanted to talk with someone cute, not with a weirdo with the horns back of his head.

-Hahaha... It's not funny. Lets go straight to the point, you are here because you are having the chance to make a wish.

-A wish?

-Yeah! Awesome, no? Just sign down here... with blood.

-Okay.

-Are you really going to sign?

-Yeah.

-Oh, okay. But you can not sign with blood while dreaming, you must be awake and conscious. (END OF THE DREAM)

Mark woke up. Satiler was also there. He signed not with blood but with the ketchup covering his index finger, Satiler did not realize.

-Done!-Mark said.

-Yeah, so... what is your wish? Be careful.

-I want... to be... a... no. Wait, I want to...

-Done!-Satiler said.

-Done what?

-Your wish is done now. You are a NO.

-A no?, what that even means?

-You will see it. Have a short life, see you in hell! HAHAHA!!

** A "NO" GONNA CHANGE EVERYTHING **

Days later mark´s mom was saying goodbye to him, nothing had changed yet. He was as always at his room.

-Hey, Mark, listen to me, I going to the grocery store... I'll back soon-She said.

-Okay mom-Mark replied while finishing his custom. Halloween had come.

-Also, I give away your cat, it was destroying the sofa.

After she said that, the cat called Fox, appeared onto Mark's bed.

-Here you are my baby! Mom gave away the wrong cat.

Seconds later he heard a car braking sharply and crashing. He saw through the window what had happened. His mom was lying on the street... She was dead.

He felt something weird back of his head, it were a couple of horns.

Halloween is a non-stop, so the day continued. He came out and asked for caramels. He was wearing the custom of Otaduy, an anime character he was fan of.

Some badasses were plaining a prank to the neighborhood, there was a house offering a party that night, so they "would set fire" to the house. When they came to the house with gasoline and two torches, Mark was there asking for sweets. They went so loud that some people thought they were going to set fire to the house for real.

-It is just a joke-some of the badasses said after seeing the angry faces of the neighbors (they were not a real badasses).

But Mark heard it, and with no one setting fire to the house, the house started burning. The horns back of Mark's head grown. Twenty persons were inside the house, they were not found.

-I AM A MONSTER! IT´S ALL MY FAULT!-Mark said.

-What do you mean?-someone asked.

-I did a blood pact with the Devil! And I became a NO! IT MEANS THERE IS NO PRANK IN THIS TOWN THAT WILL NOT BECOME A REAL INCIDENT!!

-What can we do?

-Kill me!

They tried to kill Mark, but they could not. They shoted, they asphyxiated, poisoned, the farmer even tried to rape him. He did not died.

-What can we do to not kill ourselves with our own Halloween pranks?-They asked to him.

-If you say it is just a prank, it will become real. But if you try to kill yourselves for real, it will not happen.

Every person in the town planned to kill each other for real.

** AT HELL'S OVERSEEING PACTS OFFICE **

In hell Satler was waiting outside the supervision office very nervous, he thought he was going to be fired one more time. Satler's horns were shaking.

-Hey Satiler... this is not blood, it is ketchup.

-Ketchup?

-Yeah, this pact now is invalid-said the supervisor while sealing "INVALID" on it.

Everybody in the town died for real, they kill themselves, one to each other.

Mark stoped watching anime and started to date the corpse of his crush. They got married and adopted the cat Fox.
