Chapter One: Not So Welcoming Welcome Angel
They say that after death, one knows all. When in truth...we don't.
We're still normal. Still our selves. But I wasn't. My soul was tainted. I was branded by the Devil. Cursed to live all of eternity, in solitude. I'd grown up, being able to see, the Cursed Ones well, that's what I call them. The ones, who once lived a harmless life, fearing fear its self. Knowing right from wrong. I did. Or I thought I did. Turns out, I'm the Devil's soul-mate, or long lost lover...or whatever you want to call it. I was his. I was the Lucifer's...wife. The ancient ring still branded to my skin, looking like an abnormal birth mark. It wasn't. But now. Now that I’m simply a wondering the worlds.
But little did I know, it wasn't Lucifer who I was destined to be with. It was his sons.
Have you ever been to limbo? I haven't, at least until now. A year after my death...
I've seen the plush green grass. The cloudless sky, the shining sun. and the Welcome Angel that had flown up to me.
“How? How did this happen?” She asked. Elegant in a long flowing white gown, with white-blond hair, cascading down to her hips.
“What, are you talking about? I died. A year ago. Then I found out by a demon-of some sort-that I'm the Devil's...wife?” I whispered.
“How did you die?” She asked, eyes in a down cast across her face, making her look...less angelical-like.
“Last winter...in my boyfriends arms...a fire...burned both of our bodies, to ash. In the blink on an eye.” I said. I just wanted to get out of here. Go back to the land of the living. Leave this awful place. I had no reason to be here.
“The stairs. That way. Go. Now.” I looked. Flames whipped up into the air. My long brown hair, whipped around myself. I gasped. Chains flew out, they were fire against my skin.
“W...where, do they go?” I asked, pulling my arms back, trying to get out of reach.
“To Hell.” She replied, half scared half angry at me. I looked back and she was gone. And with that, the chains gripped my arms, snaking up them, soon covering up my whole body. “No!” I'm not ready! I couldn't get the last words out before my body was engulfed in searing white hot flames.
