Chapter 1 The leaves were rustling in the cold breeze . The temperature was in the lower thirties. Other than the leaves not much could be heard in the woods. The sun had fallen a couple of hours ago. Slowly a spot between some trees began to cave in. A hand slowly clawed its way to the surface. It did not take long before the whole thing wax standing on firm ground . The hands were more like claws. As the creature stood there he slowly morphed into what looked like a normal man. He stood at five foot nine with rather un impressive looking frame. Before he could take one step there large bear creatures were standing in front of him , blocking his path.\"You know that you do not belong here, demon.\" Someone from behind the bears called. \"I know where I do and do not belong, my master has sent me to retrieve someone and that is what I'm here to do. You can try to stop me but you will not want my master to come himself now would you?\" The demon responded. The large bear like creatures made a path for the one behind them. Oddly enough the one calling the shots was a four foot nine woman with pointy ears . She looked like anyone there could read her apart. The demon however knew better, and took a step back. \" Who is it that you seek and why?\" Elda asked. She knew that the demon was right no one wanted his master to come personally. \"Someone that had managed to escape hells gates.\" The demon responded. This brought a smile to Elsa's face. She always liked it when someone managed to one up the dark lord. In the end however the dark lord was always the one who got the last laugh . \"Do not laugh or you will suffer the same fate as she does. Her name is Mandy Krews. She is the first human to ever escape the gates if he'll. \" the Demon said. anyone there could read her apart.

There are some who would welcome I fight with your master.\" Elda replied and left before the demon could say anything else. He knew that the dark lord was powerful but not invincible. This human was going to be more trouble than she was worth . Chapter 2 Mandy kept looking over her shoulder. She knew that she was a mess Her clothes were torn she was caked in dirt. To an observer she probably looked like a vagrant. She had to get to Kevin he was the only one that could help her. She was five foot even, her once long auburn hair was now short and died blonde. It was not a good look for her. She did not know why she bothered messing with it who ever was sent to look for her would recognize her no matter what she did to her appearance. She knew that everyone that she knew before she died would be in danger if she contacted them. As she walked down the street she noticed a young mother loading her kids into the car , probably probably taking them to daycare while she went to work. That was what she was looking for. Since she was taking the two kids more than likely no one would be in the house. Mandy slowed down her pace giving the mother a chance to finish. As Mandy was passing the house the car pulled out of the driveway with the mother and her two kids. Suddenly she was hit with the sadness of her loss. Her two girls would never know there mother. They were one and three when she was killed. The father was the one that had killed her. Both girls both girls watched as he did it . He slit her throat and stabbed her twenty seven times after beating her black and blue. He had been caught two days later and is now serving a twenty year sentence. Her wounds have since healed but the scars remain . She slowly made her way to the house making sure no one was watching. The front door was locked but the window next to the door was wide open. All Mandy had to do was remove the screen and climb inside. The inside was modest a few toys were laying on what looked like the living room floor . There was an old TV in the center of the room. The couch was old and covered in stains and tears. Mandy had a feeling that the women that lived here was a single mother. She saw no signs that a man lived in the house. The bathroom was in the back of the house. There was several pictures on the walks with the mom and her daughters. But none of any guy. As she was opening the bathroom door she thought she heard movement in the front of the house. She stopped , door half open. After several quiet minutes she turned to see if anyone was there. She did not see anyone but had a feeling she was being watched. Even though she had already been killed she was still scared. She was not sure what would happen if she was killed again or even if she could for again. Once she was convinced there was no one there she went into the bathroom and closed the door . Despite not seeing anyone she still had a anyone she still had a feeling that someone, of something was watching her. The bathroom like the rest if the house was small and very modest in if decor. There was a toilet and a shower, there was a small potty chair next to the toilet. The walls were painted white and the floor had a green vinyl on it. Mandy stripped if her clothes and climbed in the shower. The hot water felt good on her skin. It did not take long for her to wash all the dirt and grim off and then she climbed out of the shower still dripping wet. She left her clothes on the floor and headed out of the bathroom . She would drip dry . From the look From the looks of the woman that left the house her clothes would fit Mandy nicely. Chapter 3 Elda passed back and forth waiting for Night Owl to return. After the demon had showed up she had sent him looking for the woman named Mandy. She wanted to know how she had escaped and why. Humans were a rather weak species, that had little to no power. What was so special about this one. Elda had a mansion hidden deep in the woods. No human had ever stepped foot inside. At the moment she was in her throne room. It could easily hold a thousand plus people. At the moment it was just her passing around her throne. Since the demon, Granger had appeared she had doubled her security around the castle and in the woods. She allowed him safe passage this time, her Forrest however would not Be over run by demons or any other creatures. Even if it meant she had to dual it out with the dark lord himself. There was a nock at the door. \"Come forth with news \" Elda yelled from wear she stood . She did not bother turning to face the door. She was not looking forward to the news that was coming. Night Owl approached her throne slowly. His head hung low. He did not like to bring bad news but would not lie to Elda. \"There is no sign of this woman. I looked high and low but could find no clue as to where she is.\" He said and stood at attention. \" Are you telling me that a mere human has out smarted you. I find that very hard to believe.\" \"No, mam that is not what I am saying. Someone is hiding her. Something with powers far greater than my own. Who ever it is, is probably the same one who helped her escape hell.\" Night owl said . Elda did not like this at all she knew that there were few who could hide a human and even fewer that would. Things were not looking good whoever was hiding her had a plan. She just wish she knew what it was. \"I will go look into the matter myself while I am away I want you to watch over the Forrest.\" She said and left without another word. Night owl did not like that he could not find the women but knew that if anyone could do it, it was Elda . Chapter 4 Mandy still did not know where she was going but more and more she felt like she was being watched. She could not see anyone but had a feeling someone was out there. As she had thought the woman's clothes has fit her nicely. She made sure before she left the house to to clean everything she had messed with. Two days had passed since that day and she had not been to anyone's house , again. At the moment she was just wondering the streets aimlessly. She still had no idea why or how she had escaped. All she knew was that she was being drawn here. She just wished she knew more. \"Did you really think it would be that easy.\" She heard someone call from behind her. Without turning around she knew it was someone to take her back to the horrible place she had been before. She tried to run but was stopped dead in her tracks. Slowly she was lifted off the ground by some invisible force and turned around to face her captor. Once she was turned around she was lowered back to the ground. What she saw before her was not as bad as she was expecting , she knew however that her suffering would soon begin. \"Help, someone please help me!” she screamed as loud as she could. For some reason her voice was louder than it had ever been before . She did not think it was going to do any good . No one could be seen anywhere . Slowly he walked to were Mandy was frozen. He was still about twenty yards away but Mandy knew that there was no way that she would be able to escape. He had already proven that to her. \"You should have never run in her first place. Now things are going to be far worse for you. These humans can not help you.\" He said. As he spoke she could see that his eyes were fiery red . He must be some sort of demon, she though to herself. He reached out and touched her face. His hands were icy. Again she screamed hoping that someone anyone would hear her. that someone anyone would hear her. \"As I said before, no one can help you. Even if someone does come do you really think they can stop me. \"Why don't you step away from the lady.\" Someone said from behind them. Mandy could not see who it was but could tell that it was a guy. \"Walk away and I will pretend you were never here if not you will not live through the day.\" The demon spoke. Without another word the person behind them shot off two shots at the demons feet . He did not know who he was messing with. Without taking his eyes off Mandy he motioned with his had and she could hear her rescuer being thrown back. \"Leave him alone, I will go without a fight.\" She said trying to save the life of her would be hero.\"You act like you have a say in the matter. When he took a shot at me he signed his own death warrant.\" Just then something hit the demon in the chest . Mandy had a feeling who ever had shot at him from behind had a partner and they were now attacking from the front. The shots did little to the demon other than making him more mad than he already was. \" Steve , Rene come forth now and maybe I will end your lives quickly. Otherwise you will suffer for all eternity.\" Two shots hit the demon in the back and then another one in the chest. Who ever was trying to save Mandy did not get the hint that they could not hurt this creature. \"That's it he yelled and with a force for greater than Mandy was expecting she was thrown into a car causing the windows to shatter and the metal to bend under the impact . Mandy fell to Mandy fell to the ground. It felt like every bone in her body had been broken. Then she watched as the demon reached out with the same power he had used on her and pulled a man and woman into view. Neither of whom was in uniform but Mandy had a feeling they were some type of government agents anyway. She could hear both of them screaming in agony from the crushing force that the demon was putting on there body's. Soon they would both be dead . Without realizing hat she was doing Mandy sprinted forward and speared the demon into a brick wall. Both agents wee dropped to the ground. Mandy then helped them up and ran with the as fast as she could not looking back. Chapter 5 Chapter 5 The demon slowly got to his feet. He wiped dust and pieces of brick off of his clothes. He had never been thrown like that before nut by a human. He lost all traces of her. He was back to square one. This was not good. Now he also wanted two people that had helped Mandy escape. This was taking much longer than he thought it would. He knew that soon his would be coming if he did not bring back Mandy. He could hear sirens in the distance. He knew they were coming for him. Even though he was not worried about them he had more important things to do than deal with them. He heard someone behind him. \"Do not worry about the police they have already been handled. \" Came a woman's voice. He already knew that it was Elda . He was not He was not sure why she would help him or why she was following him. He did not bother turning to face her. She was the last person he wanted to see right now. \"I'm not in your forest anymore so why are you following me.\" He hissed, angry that she had seen what had happened. \" Not that I'm not pleased to see you get pushed around a bit or the dark lord even. I'm not sure this woman is not threat to even myself. Someone is helping her. I do not know who or why but I intend to find out. \" Elda said a smile on her face. There was few times she was not smiling. The demon knew that Elda was just looking out for her own interest and those of her people. The demon already had a feeling someone was helping this woman. He was not so sure that who ever it was would also help this other two humans . That was something special That was something special about Mandy the other two were ordinary. Chapter 6 \"Who was that back there, and how did you survive what he did to you?\" Steve asked as they stopped to catch their breaths. Mandy was not sure how much to tell them but knew that she owed them something. They had both nearly died trying to save her. \"My name is Mandy and I was murdered by my husband he is in prison. Now who are you two?\" She asked not knowing if they would even believe her. \"We are CIA, and also married. I knew I recognized you from somewhere.\" Steve responded. Rene did not say anything. She was not quick to trust Mandy but was not going to say anything. For now she would just listen. \"Your friend back there should be in custody as we speak.\" Steve continued. \"I want to thank both of you for saving me back there but he, or it will not be stopped by your government or any government got that matter. He is a demon from the deepest parts of hell and he is here to take me back.\" Mandy told Steve not wanting to get his hopes up. The truth was she did not know how they had not been caught already. No one else they just walked in silence following Mandy. She just wish she knew what to do next. Then out of no where an idea came to her. She did not know how she got it but knew that it was there best hope for now. \"We are going to hide in the run down house over there. The one with the boards up windows and sagging roof.\" They all headed to the house all the while looking over there shoulders. Both agents still had there guns and what ever other gadgets they carried. Once safely inside the house Mandy would try to come up with a better plan. plan. \"We can make a couple if phone calls and put you in protective custody .\" Steve said not really liking Mandy's plan. Despite his lack of complaints he really did not believe that whoever that was, was as big a threat as Mandy claimed. You do what you want, me I'm going to hide in here for now.\" Mandy said as she smashed open the front door that was already coming off its hinges. The floor boards creaked and moaned from her weight. Inside the house was total darkness. Steve and Rene followed her into the house. \"I do not know why but I'm going to trust you.\" Steve said closing the door. Chapter 7 Chapter 7 Soon after showing up Elda left. This greatly pleased the demon. He did not need her sticking around . Despite the time list talking with Elda the demon soon got another bead on Mandy and her two heroes . Soon they would be dead and she would be back in hell. This time there would be no tricks. He slowly made his way to the old house where his prey was hiding. Nightfall had come and the darkness was a welcome treat. \"Mandy come out and bring your new friends the time for running has ended.\" He called out standing in the front yard. He could have easily crushed the whole house with them inside but did not want to if not needed. \"Now what he is here and there is no way we get away again .\" Steve said to Mandy who had not spoken she they got there. get away again .\" Steve said to Mandy who had not spoken she they got there. \"We make a stand he is going to kill all of us nothing you do will change that but what we can do is give him done hell of a fight before we go. What weapons do you have?\" She asked \"A couple of pistols and I think Rene has a few explosives.\" Steve said. Mandy thought about it for a couple of seconds and then had a plan. \"Let's blow up the house maybe that will give us enough of a diversion to escape.\" Before Mandy could say anything else Rene went into action. She knew exactly wee to set the explosives she had for the best results. They all met in the kitchen at the back of the house when she was done. As Rene was about to talk every board covering the windows exploded into splinters. \"Time is up.\" The demon yelled slowly tearing the house down. Rene pushed a button starting the explosives. As the house was coming down. They headed out the back door. Mandy was impressed with how well there plan was going. The house was coming down as planned. What they did not plan was the demon to be waiting for them in he back yard. \"I'm done playing games. Nice display by the way.\" The demon said raising all three of them off there feet . What was left of the house burned uncontrollably. The heat could be felt on there back. \"Please let them go it is me you want \" Mandy pleaded. \"I do not know who you think I am but I do not care if you beg or not. They should have kept the noses out of this. There fates are sealed.\" To being home his point he snapped Rene's leg with a twist of his hand. She howled out in pain. Out of no where a fire ball the size of a watermelon hit the demon in the chest. Mandy and her friends were dropped to the ground. Before the demon could react another fireball hit him from behind. \"If you want to live you will come with me Mandy heard a voice from the other side of some kind or blue light. Almost like a doorway. Without any thought she pulled Steve and Rene through the portal.
