After cleaning up the mess of the mutilated T.V., it was already 9:00 P.M. and I've just had the wildest day of my life. I pushed through my rooms door and flopped down on my bed face first. I felt a stinging pain in my side and I immediately flopped over to see what it was. shit! I completely forgot about the wound on my side. It was a lot worse than I thought. There was a pool of blood seeping out of it. I guess the bleeding stopped when I got it and decided that it should bleed all over the place when I least wanted it to. I rushed to the bath room, pushing past Kal. Hopefully that old man put some kind of medical supplies in here. I can't believe it. Out of all the stuff he got me, the only medical supplies in here, was a small plastic tube with the letters: R-C, on it. nothing else was on it but a small note was under it. use in small amounts and don't waste a drop!-priest Goshier I still thought it was ridiculous that this guy had a crap load of money and didn't bother to buy any thing but a small tube of some medicine I've never heard of. Whatever. I should stop questioning every thing this guy says because he's probably 10 times smarter than me on this stuff.

I twisted open the cap and dabbed a bit on my finger and smeared it across the wound. Instantly, the wound started to regenerate and all that was left was the blood on my skin where the cut use to be. I quickly cleaned up the mess on my side when I noticed Kal was staring the entire time. " What? ", I asked, " Where'd you get that stuff?! ", I handed him the note the old man gave me. He just stared in disbelief at the note, then at me, than back to the note again. He ran off into his room to do, I don't know, freak out?

I finally pushed into my room again, even more tired then before, and dosed off. Ignoring the pool of blood I was laying in. DREAM: I was running in a forest just straight ahead. From what? I don't know. I just know I didn't want to be caught by it. Then some kind of huge black and red creature appeared in front of me. I couldn't move or look around, just watch as the blurry creature rose out of the ground in front of me. He wore a suit with a red tie and had huge ram horns that twisted 3 times and ended in a faded red tip. His eyes were completely purple. It was a light purple laughed and leaned in close to my face and said some thing in some foreign language I didn't under stand. And with that I flew awake.

I woke with a pounding in my head and I couldn't remember a thing about my dream. I think I want to keep it that way. I woke up at around 4:00 in the morning. So I just watched T.V. in my room until 6:00. By then Kal was up as well. I pulled out a wad of 100 dollar bills and handed them to Kal before wandering into the kitchen to eat some cereal. He looked at me questioningly," T.V.", I said bluntly. He looked down at the money , " I'll need 100 more...", I looked at him and went back to my bag to get another 100 dollar bill. He ran out the door with a smile on his face. I think he just wanted that last one just to go buy whatever. I walked back to my room and froze. There were demons in my room. There were three of them. One reading a book on my bed in a sweat shirt and black shorts. Another was half way in the window wearing a black T-shirt and jeans. And the third was trying to remove my T.V. wearing a red shirt and sweat pants. They all looked at me when I walked in and dropped what they had in their hands. Two fell out of the window, the first one dropped the book and pulled the third one out the window with him. My T.V. fell onto the floor and shattered. Great.....

I spent the next half hour cleaning up the T.V. pieces and throwing them into the trash. I picked up the book that was titled: Astaroth, I flipped over the book to look for a description, witch there was none. I decided to read it, since I had no T.V. I know I could go into Kal's room, but I was already reading it. It said he was one of the most powerful demons to live. He could manipulate any mortal and any lower level demons. It had also said that he was kicked out of the assassin corps and after that he was never seen again. Last place he was seen was in some casino in Las Vegas. Wouldn't want to bump into him.
