"So the devil couldn't cause enough death and destruction, so he created you."

"That's right."  Desdemona answered. Daniel and Desdemona had just begun discussing Desdemona's past as they sat across from each other at Daniel's dining table eating the bacon that Desdemona had prepared for them an hour earlier.

"How long ago was this exactly?"

"I'm actually considered very young. I was conceived a few years before that douche discovered America."

"Columbus discovered America in 1492..."

"Yeah. He was a cocky little prick about it too."

"That's fascinating. Have you known any other historical figures or is that where your list ends?"

"I've known pretty much all of them. For example Abe Lincoln, wasn't half god. All of that stuff is bullshit. Good old Abe was half angel."

"Incredible." Daniel breathed.

Daniel and Desdemona continued to talk back and forth until the sun finally went down and darkness fell upon the country.

"Your name is a mouthful. Mind if I call you something shorter?" Daniel asked as he poured hot chocolate into a mug and handed it to Desdemona.

"No need to ask, Danny Boy. Call me what you like."

"Alright. How's Mona?"

Mona looked at Daniel and smiled. "That's perfect."

"Good." Daniel smiled back, and for awhile neither said nothing. They just looked at each other and smiled like fools.

Desdemona cleared her throat. "Well enough of that. I need to tell you why I'm actually here. As I said, I have been serving Lucifer since the late 1400's and we've clearly been doing pretty well. But none of it has been good enough for Lucifer. In hopes of sparking a flame to start a war, he has ordered me to help him take this world."

Daniel stared at Mona is disbelief. "What will happen to us?"

"Lucifer says the mortals have a sad existence, easily manipulated. He thinks that if he takes this world, and convince the humans to follow him, then he may start the war to destroy heaven."

Daniel gaped at Mona. "How...how am I  supposed to help you?"

"I am Lucifer's most powerful creation. Perhaps the most powerful creature ever to walk your world. But my powers can only be used for evil. Your heart is the purest I could find, and I need you to change mine."

"So all I have to do is help you change your heart, and you can save heaven and earth from the devil?"

Desdemona flashed a small, sorrowful smile. "I wish it was that simple Dan."
