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...


9. Drive like Hell

9. Heavenly Army

"What do you mean?" Daniel asked.

Mona closed her eyes: "In order to change a demons way of heart, one with the purest of heart must reveal to Lucifer his heart and prove to the devil himself that will prevail over evil."

"So you're saying that I have to prove to the devil that good will always defeat evil, and you're powers will be used for good?"


"And then you'll be able to defeat the devil and save the world?"

"Well it won't be just me. I'll most likely have the Heaven's army to back me up."

Daniel sipped some hot chocolate. "What about me?"

"What about you?"

"If I somehow succeed at convincing the devil that good is better than evil, then what happens to me? Does the devil get pissed and send me to hell or something?"


"Well what?"

"I'm not exactly sure what will happen to you Dan."

Daniel stood up quickly, his chair toppled onto the floor with a crash. "You expect me to possibly give my life for you, and I have just met you."

"No Daniel. I'm asking you to possibly give your life for this world." Mona slowly stood up. "Actually the possibility of you giving up your life is not option. Because I won't let anything harm you. Not even Lucifer."

"You're a demon.  How am I supposed to know I can trust you?"

Desdemona looked Daniel up and down, and looked him straight in the eyes. "I haven't killed you yet."

Just as Mona spoke, the sound of the front door closing stopped Daniel from responding. Daniel stood up to investigate, but Mona grabbed his hand and slowly shook her head.

"It's probably just Laura." Daniel said as he shook of her hand and made his way to the entryway. Laura was in the entryway, shaking the snow out of her scarf and boots. When she heard Daniel walk in,  she looked up and grinned.

"Hey. Sorry I had to leave. I got called in to work."

"Yeah I saw that."

"You feelin' better?" Laura asked as she held her cold hand up to Daniel's forehead.

"I'm fine now thanks." Daniel swerved away from Laura's hand.

"do I smell bacon?" Laura pushed passed Daniel and strode into the kitchen.
Daniel ran after Laura to stop her.
"No. No it's not bacon there's nothing in there-"


"Look Laura, I need to explain-"

"The hell you do. When did you learn to cook like this?" When Daniel stepped into the kitchen, he saw Laura standing in front of the stove. On top of the stove sat an elaborate lasagna, topped with 4 cheeses in 4 different shades of yellow. It was still sizzling like it was just pulled out of the oven. Just then, the oven began to beep and Laura flung the door open. The smell of fresh bread filled the air as the two gazed upon 4 fresh bread rolls.

Laura turned to face Daniel and put a hand on her hip. "You MUST feel better than last night Daniel if you just suddenly started cooking like you're Martha fucking Stewart."

"Well we can't waste all of you're hard work and labor can we? Let's eat it!" Laura ran to the drawer and pulled out multiple utensils for her and Daniel to share. She used a hot pad to move the plate of lasagna to the table. "Grab the bread, will you Dan?" Daniel obeyed, and brought the bread to the table.

"This is so hot you must have just pulled it out."  Laura stated as she fanned the lasagna.


"Laura scooped up some lasagna and stuffed it into her mouth. "Not to hot to eat though!" Daniel looked down at the lasagna. It was steaming hot. If anyone put that into their mouth they would burn their tongue off. 

"So how is the horse?" Daniel asked.

"What horse?" Laura asked, her mouth.

"The horse that caught in the fence." Daniel said blankly.

Laura stared at him with a puzzled look on her face. "Was this on the news or something?"

"No. It was from your note. That a horse got caught in a barbed wire fence and that's why your boss called you in to work. You're a vet. That's what you do. You horses from fences..."

"Ooohhhhh the horse is fine just fine." Laura continued to chow down the hot Lasagna. She was eating it so quickly and so ferociously that she was like a hungry dog.  Just then, Dan's cell phone rang.

Dan got up to answer. "Hello?"

The next sentence was barely audible through all the heaving sobs, but this is what Daniel could make out. "Hey.. it's Laura.... the horse is's all my fault...I should have done more..."

Just then the sound of metal hitting the floor filled the room.  Daniel turned to where Laura was sitting. The tray of bread was thrown onto the floor, and the fork Laura was using was stabbed into the table.

"Yeah Laura I've got to call you back." Daniel hung up his phone and put it back into his pocket.

"Get in your car and wait for me." Desdemona appeared beside him.


"Get the fuck in your car Dan. Wait for me. Be ready to drive like hell is chasing you. Because it most likely will be."
