18. Tragedy

Marcus did his best to give Crimson no opportunity to fight back. But his best wasn't exactly good enough against the near godlike power he was up against. Crimson backhanded him across the face and sent him flying back out of the whole he had come from. Charlie was unconscious on the floor and forgotten by the bloodthirsty man that now walked over her. He went outside to finish off the pathetic man outside. He was very impressed that the human had managed to kill a demon with his bare hands. Still... One demon was different from another. He let out an ear-piercing roar and charged at the startled human.

Charlie woke up and jumped to her feet. She was still a little dazed but she wasted no time by hesitating. She ran outside just in time to see it. Marcus on his knees, covered in his own blood, Crimson stood over him clutching his head. She had time to scream "NO!" before Crimson pulled. And the head separated from the rest of Marcus' body. All she could do was scream. Tears rolled down her face. Crimson turned to look at her. His blood red eyes glinting with pleasure. He began to walk over to her when the blood moon reached its peak.

The symbols around the altar began to glow an ominous red. As did the skull. After a few moments. A beam of light shone out of the skull and up to the moon which began to glow an even darker red. Then a jagged bit of red lightning flew down from the moon and hit crimson in the back. He gasped in pain and shock. Then the lightning engulfed him. She could hear him screaming. "What the hell is going on?" She wondered. She got her answer a few seconds later. The lightning faded revealing a massive hulking beast of a monster. Literally a nightmare. It had massive wings, it's eyes were pits of glowing red fire. Spikes of shadow protruded from his back, arms and legs. It's teeth were the size of meat cleavers and a million times as sharp. This was what he had once been.... And now once again. He screeched. It burst her ear drums and shattered everything made of glass. This was real hell...
