Daniel slowly opened his eyes to see that he was once again in his room. Despite the door being closed he could hear Andy and Mona talking softly.
"Whatever he wants with him it can't be solely for HIM." He heard Andy's voice say.
Dan slowly got up and tip toed to the door. He heard Mona reply "What do you mean?"
"Lucifer is nothing without you, despite what he may say. Over the years he has become more and more reliant on you until finally you practically became apart of him. You remember when he disappeared you sort of flew back?"
"Yes. It felt like something was holding me back and it finally released me."
"That's exactly what happened. You broke free from him. Now that you are more powerful than you ever were, he's going to want you back. Knowing Lucifer he won't stop for anything to get you back. That's why he changed Laura. To get to Daniel which will in turn be getting to you."
Mona was quiet for awhile. "What do we do?"
"I don't know."
"Should we go back to the safe house? For Dan?"
"I suppose that wouldn't hurt anything. But he would expect that wouldn't he?"
"Even if he did he wouldn't be able to hurt Daniel."
Mona was silent. For awhile. "Dan's awake."
Dan turned and dashed for the bed and covered up in a blanket but the door never opened.
"Nice try Daniel." Dan let out a startled yell as Mona suddenly appeared beside his bed.
"You heard the whole thing didn't you?" Andy asked as he opened the door and walked in.
Dan sat up in his bed. "I don't think I heard it all, but I heard enough."
Mona sighed. "We were going to tell you in a better way Daniel."
"What's a good way to tell me that we have to go to the safe house again? I don't mind being there."
Mona and Andy exchanged a glance. Dan went on ; "Oh you mean the part that Lucifer changed Laura? Yeah I don't know what you mean by that."
"Lucifer changed Mona into a demon, Daniel." Andy said Bluntly.
Dan looked down to the bed sheets as he quietly asked,"What does that mean for Laura?"
"It means she has no control over herself anymore. Lucifer controls every decision she makes." Mona said as she gently put a hand on Dan's soldier.
"Just like he controlled you?"
Dan looked up from his sheets. "But you rebelled. You turned against him. You changed your heart, can't she do that?"
Mona sighed. "Yes I did. But I was way more powerful than she is. My power gave me wisdom I guess. But Laura is different. She likes the power she has now. She isn't going to give it up."
"What if I change her heart like I did for you?"
"Her heart can't be changed."
"Mona what are you saying?"
Mona looked to Andy. He leaned back onto the wall behind him and put his hands in his pockets. After letting out a long sigh he answered. "She's suffering Dan she just doesn't know it."
"Dan we would be helping her."
Daniel started sinking into his bed. "No Andy no."
"Dan if we don't do it then she'll stay that way forever."
Dan couldn't speak. He knew if he did then he wouldn't be able to stop crying.
Andy pushed off the wall and walked to the foot of Dan's bed and rested his hands on the bed posts.
"God will only be able to help her if we release her soul from her body." Andy closed his eyes and took a deep breath. When he opened his eyes he revealed tears welling up in his eyes. "Dan she has to die."
