Okay, I am definitely going mental. Could this day get any creepier? I sit on the bench on the other side of my apartment looking down at my swollen and blistered feet. I give out a frustrated sigh as I breathe in the cold winter air. My feet are freezing, I should probably go inside. I push myself off the bench only to be startled by an explosive sound and the scent of something seriously burnt. I look across the street at my apartment. What on Earth!? My apartment is on fire! And it only seems that the fire stays in one place, it doesn’t spread like other fires.
I gasp and sprint towards the middle of the street when something big knocks me over. Huh… a dog? But wait, is this… it’s the same dog as before! I struggle to get up as the massive creature licks my face vigorously. I can’t help but smile and pat the dog as it seems he was only trying to be friendly. I wonder where his owner went.
“Cerberus! Bad dog!” There he was. The blonde man quickly runs over and pulls his dog back by his collar.
"Thanks to you our plan is ruined, this girl should have been dead by now!” The gorgeous man with glasses comes from behind and points at the growling dog.
“What do you mean by dead!?” I yell. The two men look at each other with wide eyes.
"Crap, Henry, he's going to kill us!" Apart from the fact that I just found out the blonde's name was Henry, I don't know what they're talking about. Then another two men come out from nowhere.
“Alright, who messed up?” The silver hair is a giveaway, it is Mitchell. He glares at each and every one. His voice is low, raspy and maybe even....sexy? Shut up Blair! There's no time for this, can't you see that your apartment is burning down right in front of you?!
“Why are you hanging out here?!” Why is Casper hanging out here? “Now my plan is ruined, thanks to you. You were supposed to be toast after that explosion in your room.”
“W-what on earth are you talking about?” Still sitting on the road I tremble and start to panic.
My heart is hammering loudly in my chest as my legs get closer to my chest. No, no, no. This couldn't be happening! "T-toast?" I take a deep breath of air although it is quite suffocating due the smoke filling our surroundings. It takes a while for my mind to settle down and register everything in front of me. The burning of my apartment and now all four men that I have acquainted with today."Yes toast," Casper nods reassuringly.
I let out a loud gasp. "That explosion happened because my toaster got caught on fire?!"
"..... Are you serious?" Casper face palms himself and Mitchell lets out a loud snort which catches everyone's attention. "Blown to smithereens. Burn to a crisp........Toast. Do you understand Blair?"
Henry, with blonde hair, gives me a warm smile and I stare up at him blankly. "Blair....You died in an explosion due to a gas leak and went to heaven. Well that was the plan," he continues to explain.
"You're the guy who was walking his dog-- Wait. How come you know my name?" so many questions and thoughts linger in my mind and I can't think straight anymore.
"You really are an idiot. Aren't you?" my attention is now towards the dark lustrous man who pushes his glasses up his nose.
"Excuse me?" my eyebrows knit together and the anger flushes through me; replacing my confused expression.
"Don't you get it? Just hurry up and get over with this so I can go home and sleep guys," he turns his back on me and raises his hands behind his head as he lets out a soft yawn.
"It's not just her that's an idiot. Flynn. It's the entire human population," Casper corrects Flynn. So that's the dark haired mysterious man's name, Flynn.
"Wha--! Wait. You're a human too!" my voice is slightly raised and I'm now pointing my index finger directly at Casper's face.
"Nope, I'm a demon," an amused smirk plasters on his face as he folds his arms.
Casper lets out a heavy sigh before walking over to me. Each step he takes, the closer he gets and my heart picks up its pace. Once he is inches away from my face he leans to my right and whispers in my ear, "Get it through your thick skull. Human. We're demons and we're here to take your soul. Once we have your soul, we'll recycle it into a new human. It's Eco-friendly," every single word Casper says sends the hairs on my neck to rise.
I shake my head side to side and quickly push Casper by his chest. He's startle at first by my brave action but I speak up before anything else happens, "Pfft, you guys are funny! Are you guys sure your heads are screwed on right?" his head snaps in my direction and his eyes shoot daggers at me. I swear if looks could kill I'd be dead in an instance. His hand raises and my eyes widen in fear. Holy shit! He's going to hit me!
"Look," he instructs and I open one of my eyes with caution. In an instant, the raging fire in my room subsides. "Do you believe us now?" his lips curve up into a smile which is full of contempt. Not only do I believe them now but I'm also fucked.
