A demon in the form of a 17 year old girl who has ben appointed as the right hand of the devil himself. She has confided in Daniel for help, but for something he can't help her with. Or so he thinks...

"So there's just a random burnt spot in the middle of your yard?"


"And you didn't hear anything strange, like a teenager setting a fire or anything?"

"No. It couldn't have been done by a person. All the snow within an at least a 2 foot radius was melted. But it must not have been strong enough to melt the colossal snow drift it was behind. "

"Something was on fire. And you didn't do it."


"That sounds really strange and very supernatural."

Daniel was on the phone with his best friend Laura. She believed strongly in all things supernatural and was very superstitious

"Laura, that's ridiculous."

"Okay college boy, then explain to me what else it could be."


"My point exactly."

"Well what am I supposed to do about it? Am I being haunted by a vandalizing ghost or what?"

"Just wait until something happens. For all we know it could mean nothing."

"Yeah, but we KNOW nothing about this. Should I call someone?"

"You already did. You called me."

"I mean someone who can explain to me why there is a 5 foot smoldering fire pit in my yard when I didn't set a fire."

"There is probably a scientific explanation to this. Just wait until the morning, and if it gets worse then call me again and I'll come over. It's too late for me to drive all the way out there."

"Alright Laura. Thanks."


With that Daniel hung up the phone and stared at the TV to attempt to watch the news.

It hadn't been 2 seconds when he heard a voice behind him.

"I'm disappointed in you Danny Boy."

Daniel leaped up off his couch in surprise and spun around to see the intruder. It was a girl, she couldn't be older than 19, with pale skin and long black hair that was tied up in a high pony tail that reached her waist. Her eyes were an unnatural color of bright blue. She rested her elbow on the door frame, and wore a short flowy red dress topped off with a black leather jacket and black leather boots.  She was the most beautiful thing Daniel had ever seen.

"Who are you?"

"Not important."

"Did you set a fire in my yard?"

The girl threw her head back with a laugh. It was a lovely laugh, but something about it was off.

"Do you think I'm some kind of hoodlum or something?"

"I know that you're an intruder."

"Oh Danny Boy I'm a lot more than that." She said as she slowly walked over to where Daniel was standing.

"How do you know my name?"

"I know a lot of things about you Danny. Some things that you don't even know about yourself."

"Get out, or I'll call the cops."

The intruder stopped dead in her tracks and the smile vanished from her face.

As quickly as she had appeared, she vanished. In a great ball of fire.
