Daniel has a secret. It's not one of those secrets that he will die of embarrassment if anyone found out, it's a secret that could kill him. This secrets name is Desdemona. 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...


6. Time for Lunch

6. Time for Lunch



Daniel woke up late the next morning.  He felt tired, but otherwise completely fine. As he sat up in his bed, he looked over to his clock to see the time.


Jeez. Daniel thought. Looks like it's time for lunch. He threw off the covers and walked out to his living room. He smelled eggs cooking and could hear bacon sizzling. Alright, this is just too much.  He made his way into his kitchen to send Laura home.  His knees buckled at the sight he saw, and he grabbed the counter top for support but only grabbed the dirty pots sitting on the counter and Daniel and the pots hit the ground with a crash.

"Well good morning graceful. Or should I say good afternoon." The girl asked.

"What did you do with Laura?"

"I didn't do anything with Laura. Her boss called and she had to go into work. She left a note." Daniel got up off the floor and scrambled for the note.


My boss called, a horse got caught in a barbed wire fence. I'll call you. I hope you feel better!



"Alright, well Laura's gone and you're still here, so tell me everything. If you don't, and if you choose to get out of my life peacefully, then I won't press charges."

The intruder turned off the stove. "First of all, I am making you breakfast. The least I could get is a thank you. Second of all, you can't sue me if you don't know my name."

"Well then what is it?"

She hesitated. "My name is Desdemona."

It just now hit him how unbelievably gorgeous she was.  Even now, with her bare feet and skinny jeans. Her hair was in a messy bun on top of her head and she wore a plain black t shirt.

"Now that's a start. You said last night you said you would explain everything to me when Laura left. Well now she's gone. I want you to tell me everything. I have figured out that you aren't going to rob me, and I've also figured out that you are more than human. I want to know the whole story."

Desdemona picked the pan of bacon and plucked a slice of bacon off the pan. She took a bite and held the pan out to Daniel. "Bacon?"

Daniel looked down at the bacon and looked to Desdemona. He was starving. He grabbed a piece and took a bite. "Now talk."

Desdemona set the back down on the stove and walked over to the table. She pulled out a chair and sat down, kicking her feet up on the table.  "My name is Desdemona. It means bringer of evil and destruction.  I was...conceived in the lowest pits of Hell by my master, Lucifer.  He appointed me as his right hand. Do you remember the Holocaust?"

Daniel gaped at Desdemona.

"That was Lucifer. Do you remember Miami in the 90s? With all the gang violence?"


"Yeah. That was me. But what Lucifer doesn't realize is that I have the potential to become more powerful than he is. And I want to use that for something else. Something good. I'm tired of being a bringer of evil. But I can never die, and I can't change who I was created to be. I need your help for that."


"You have a pure soul. The purest soul I could find. One thing that proves that to me is how you haven't tried to hurt me."

"What makes you think I'm not going to kill you now?"

"Desdemona let out a little laugh. "You couldn't kill me if you tried, Dan."

"Well if you're so evil and powerful then how do I know you're not going to kill me?"

"If I wanted to kill you Daniel then I would have killed you already."

"Valid point."

"You're very brave Danny. I like that."
