“A demon, what do you mean a demon becky?”

“I mean a demon. Like I was saying before when I was 13 my parents made a deal. A deal with the devil. For fame and power they sold my soul to him. For their own Fucking greedy desires they sold my soul to him. The realm of gods and demons does exist Jamie and I can tell you this, it isn't pretty. There was this one very powerful demon titled The GodSlayer for being merciless towards gods and angels sent to hunt my soul down. When he reached me I was on the streets, cold, alone and on the verge of death. He looked at me and told me this.  My lord has sent me to capture your soul but on my honor I can see you are not worthy of death. Because of this preposterous ordeal I’ll give you a chance to save your soul.”

As she told me this story I could see the fear and sadness in her eyes. She continued with the story.

” He then said let's make a deal, if you manage to kill someone within 24 hrs I'll spare you and provide you with demonic powers.”

I interrupted her because of the crazy deal I imagine she agreed with. “ What do you mean kill someone!? Did you actually kill someone?!” I could tell by her aura that she was not currently sane. She looked as if she was being pulled deeper and deeper into an abyss. “HEY Becky snap out of it!” she widened her eyes with a jolt and looked up at me.

“Jamie, I..I took the deal.”

My heart dropped, if she took the deal and the thing in the jar was demonic powers than who did she kill. Who could she have possibly murdered, do I need to worry. All these thoughts rushed my mind like a stampede of buffalo, I was shocked.

“ Jamie, I didn't kill anyone. I took the deal and after 24 hrs he came back and asked me if I had done it. I denied it completely and told him I didn't which was the truth. He let out a deep sigh and his eyes shut close. I believed he was ready to take my soul, and what happened next wasn't reassuring. A few seconds after he closed his eyes he opened them again. This time they opened and had a deep blood red color to them. He chanted an unrecognizable chant in an unknown language and rose from the ground, he spun around and under him appeared a vial. As he spun the vial emitted a dark suffocating mist. He halted to a stop then turned his back to me. In a deep voice he said,

YOU PASSED MY TEST… IF YOU WOULD HAVE TAKEN A LIFE THEN YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN WORTHY OF DEATH. THEREFORE YOUR SOUL IS SAFE FROM ME AT LEAST. THE VIAL HOLDS MY TRUE POWER AND WHOEVER OPENS IT WILL INHERIT THOSE DEMONIC POWERS. SO I LEAVE YOU WITH THIS MESSAGE. SHALL THE VIAL EVER BE OPENED THEN THE TRUE DEMONS WRATH WILL HAVE AWOKEN. FOR THE UNLUCKY ONE TO HAVE SOUGHT THIS POWER JUST BE PREPARED TO FIGHT AT THE DEMONS HOUR. FAREWELL BECKY FERGESTINE. He then disappeared into the shadows.”

I was completely awestruck, my mind was just trying to comprehend at least half of this story. “Wait Becky so, what does this say about the vial. Now I have some sort of demonic power just casually inside me.”

“ It would seem that way jamie, I'm so sorry for not telling you about the vial and how its contents would tempt you. I'm really sorry…”

I could see she definitely meant it but that didn't change the fact that now I have these demonic powers dormant inside me. “ Becky, what else aren't you telling me?”

“ He also left some weird names on a paper. I don't know  what they mean or are though.”

She handed me the piece of paper with the demons writing on it. It Read as follows for the inheritor of the powers remember WRATH, PRIDE, ENVY, GREED, LUST, SLOTH AND GLUTTONY. Never call upon wrath unless the direst of situations and always call upon pride if you want to survive. Call upon greed if there's anything you need. Call upon lust but only if you really must. Call upon envy to go on a frenzy. Call upon sloth if you want your feelings away. Finally call upon gluttony but it may not be so healthy.

“ Becky, these are the seven Deadly sins.” She looked at me with a puzzled look so I explained. “ the seven deadly sins are almost everyday emotions but if used too much can lead to bad things. In christianity theses are considered deadly sins and one must not feel theses on a day to day basis or at all.”

“Wait so your demonic powers are somehow connected? Could they possibly be the seven deadly sins?”

I thought about the topic for a bit longer as we discussed but I was still confused about a certain part. “Becky...What is the Demons Hour?” She looked at me and shrugged. We both stood there just trying to process it all and then she sat down. “ Well Becky we’re not getting anywhere so I'm just going to continue dinner.” She nodded in consent but wasn't speaking I don't know why. I finished making dinner and had enough left over for a good 3 days. “ Becky dinners ready. I made my specialty spaghetti and meatballs. Sorry if you don't like it but this will probably be our only meal for the next 3 days. High School struggles he he.” when I looked over to the couch but she wasn't awake. I could have woken her up but she looked so peaceful. When looking at her everything that happened came back to me. I managed to forget the fact that her parents sold her soul to devil, that she was wandering the streets alone for almost a year and how she was only 14. Her mentality and way of thinking totally just contradicts the fact that she's that age, it's interesting. Maybe she had to adapt to the fact that she was alone, the fact that she now had to survive on the streets. Hopefully I was a bit of reassurance and comfort. I went over to the couch and picked her up. She was really light, surprisingly light. I carried her over to my bed as her hair dangled off my arm. I layed her on my bed and covered her with a blanket. You could hear the rain outside getting louder. It was soon followed by lighting strikes and thunder which made me jump a little bit. As I closed the door she moved but fell soon fast asleep. I walked over to my dinner on the table and began to eat, I was eating but not getting full which was really weird. I ate and ate and didn't get full, in fact my stomach yearned for more. I couldn't stop eating, before I knew it I had eaten almost 5 plates worth of spaghetti and meatballs.  Why was this happening, it just wasn't making sense. I really got freaked out when about 5 minutes later this whole wave of pain made my muscles cramp up, I was so full I was sure my stomach would burst. I ran into the bathroom almost as fast as the wave had hit me and just puked for about 10 minutes. I have no idea what's happening to me. It couldn’t have to do with the demonic powers would it? Everything changed all of a sudden when I felt really hot, like burning. I could feel all the blood rush down to one part of my body and I knew what it was.
