The snow was falling hard, and Mona knew that she was in trouble. Mortals weren't supposed to know about the existence of her kind let alone be in one of their safe houses. But no harm could be done to him even if there were others in the house, so she couldn't be too worried. She had more important things to worry about. If the Reapers found her wondering around the town they would take her and either tell Lucifer about her or return her back to hell no questions asked. Occupants of the safe house were restricted to the Church, and were forbidden to wonder the town unless they were entering or leaving. This law of course is out of respect for the Reapers. The bushes beside Mona began to rustle, and she crouched and bared her teeth to prepare to fight. A squirrel hopped out of the bush and Mona sighed a sigh of relief. She let herself plop onto the ground as an idea popped into her head. Reapers couldn't condemn her to anything if they didn't know what she was. She leaped up into the air and took the form of a black crow.  As she flapped her wings she closed her eyes and tried to remember everything about Dan. His scruffy blonde hair, awkward personality, and unmistakable innocence. Dan's voice played in her head, it's not your fault we didn't get along. We were two completely different people.

Damn it. Mona thought. How am I supposed to find somebody if I know nothing them? Mona flew over to a quaint house and landed on the roof. She felt something familiar, something she relied on more than anything. She flew down beside the house to a window and looked in. The TV was tuned to some infomercial and a man sat asleep in a recliner in front of it. A bottle of booze lay spilt on the floor beside him. His long blonde hair in a mess on top of his head. It was the same blonde hair that sat on Dan's head, Mona instantly knew that she had found Andy.


Dan sat alone in a beautiful bedroom that seemed to be fit for a king. The round bed seemed to take up a majority of the room, and it was as soft as a cloud. He laid his head on the pillow and closed his eyes prepared to drift to sleep.

"Who are you?" He heard a soft voice ask. It sounded kind, purely curious.

Dan opened his eyes and looked to the door way. A woman in an elegant white nightgown stood in the doorway. Her hair was golden, and a white glow sat floated over her head.  Dan knew instantly she was an angel.

"I'm Daniel, Daniel Durbin."

"How did you get in here, Daniel Durbin?"

"My friend brought me here, she will return soon but I'm not sure when. She told me to stay here and sleep, I have had a long journey here."

The woman cocked her head sideways. "What is your friend's name?"

Dan hesitated. "..It's Mona."

The Angel's eyes widened. He could see she was frightened. "What is her purpose here?"

"She means no harm-"

"You can't be here Daniel Durbin."

"Please I have to stay here please."

The angel took a step back. And thought. "You may stay here for the night, but in the morning you must leave. No exceptions. You must leave first thing in the morning."

Dan smiled in relief. "Thank you. I never got your name?"

The woman lightly smiled. "Alexandra. Now sleep, Daniel Durbin."




Taking her mortal form, Desdemona walked to the front door of the house. She knew this was a huge risk but she couldn't take any chances. She pressed her hand to the door, and as the area around her hand turned black she looked down to the doorknob as it slowly turned. The door opened and she stepped into his filthy house. She walked slowly, quietly, up to where he slept in the recliner. She walked in front of it and turned of the TV.

"Andy." She said.

The Reaper continued to snore.

"ANDY DURBIN." She half yelled.

With this the Reaper jolted awake and flew into the air. He extended his hand in front of him as a warning as it began glow a bright blue. He looked at Mona and she looked at him. Mona realized how beautiful he was. He had a perfect jawline and dark brown eyes. He around the same age as her mortal form if not older.  As she reveled in his beauty he began to realize who she was and he lowered his hand and slowly floated back to the ground in front of her. He was much taller than she was.

"You're not supposed to be here."

"I know that, but I have a good reason to be here."

He took a step toward her and he was now so close to her that she could feel his hot breath on his face. It smelled heavily of alcohol, but it still caused the hair on the back of her neck to stand up and her spine to tingle. He slowly looked down the half empty bottle of booze laying on the floor and picked it up. He took a swig from the bottle as he continued to speak to Mona

"I should tell on you." He smirked at her.

"There's no need for that."

"Just because you're the second most feared being on this planet you don't get special treatment." He looked her up and down and gave her the sexiest crooked smile she had ever seen. "But you are pretty hot in this form, so I think I'm going to hear what you have to say so I can look at you a little longer."

Mona rolled her eyes. "You're such an asshole. How are you related to Daniel?"

At the sound of Daniel's name the smile instantly vanished from his face.

"Don't worry. He's not hurt. I like him too much to let him get hurt."

All in one swift movement the bottle of booze shattered to the floor and Andy lunged at her throat. His hand was glowing the same bright blue as it was wrapped around her throat and held her up against the wall. "What the hell have you done with Daniel?" Andy demanded.


The bright blue glow of a Reaper's hand, their shanta, is the one thing that cripples demons. Even those as powerful as Mona. She weakly clawed at his hand in vain. He was a powerful reaper, and his hand was burning into the skin on her neck. She tried to choke out words but he was too strong, and he was just squeezing her neck tighter and tighter until she could all she could manage was a scream of pain. He released his grasp on her and she crashed onto the floor, rubbing her burning neck and gasping for breath. "Not so powerful without your master giving you your every command huh?" Andy crouched beside her, resting a hand on her shoulder. "Now tell me what you have done with Daniel, or I'll bring in Lucifer. Maybe you'll answer to him."

Mona looked to the floor and got a quick glance of her reflection in one of the broken shards of the bottle. All she could really see were two bright red eyes staring back at her. Looking back to Andy she said: "Dan is at the church. I need him to help me change my heart."

Andy stood up and walked over to the window . The night was slowly turning to day. He gazed outside for awhile, and then gave a little laugh. "Figures. You're using him for your own selfish reasons."

"Andy, I need him to help me stop Lucifer from taking this world. If I change my heart I can stop him. I need all the help I can get to keep Dan safe..."

He turned to face Desdemona. "I haven't talked to my brother in years. What makes you think he'll want me back in his life?"

"You're all he has left. I know Danny. Please just try. It's not like you have anything better to do."

Andy looked around his room and looked back at Mona.

"Let's go to the church then."
