Now, I have a phone call I need to take, so...

Demon: *blip*

Goethe? I think we're just about done here. Is the petitioner from Theia still on the line?


Goethe(?): Yeah, yeah. Been keeping him worked up, like you said to.

Demon: Good. When you're ready, patch them through to me.

I greet you, brave mortal. Your heart's most desperate plea has echoed down into the depths of Hell. And it is I, the Demon Queen Marlowe, who heard your cry, and answered. I, the Twice-Betrayed. Eternal Warden of the Sea of Lost Souls. And I come, bringing an offer of True Solace for your grief...

If, of course, you are prepared to pay our price in return... ahahaha!

...:
O-of course. I know the price. I'd pay anything! Just, please. Save my little Cassowary...


Marlowe: Ohoho.... mortals are always so eager to offer anything...

But do you even know what you have to lose? Just what I could choose to take in recompense?

"Anything," fuhuhuh... what a foolish offer.


...:
Maybe it is foolish. O-or... or maybe a Demon like you just can't understand a parent's love for their children.

A-are you still there?


Marlowe: Ah, but of course. A parent's love.

I suppose that means you're willing to do whatever we ask of you, then? Lie for us. Steal for us... Kill for us even? Consign yourself forever to our servitude?


...:
But that's... not what the other Demon said the price would be...

(04-17-2018, 03:41 PM)Fellow Wrote: »Also, you're telling me that any other demon this guy may petition would at best steal the girl's soul and pretend they didn't? What makes you special?

Marlowe: As I said, we are a philanthropic organization. I never said any other Demon would steal a Soul.

But desperate mortals make foolish decisions. And other Demons are just that. Other. Different. Different goals, through different means.

Besides, making generalizations about a group is rude.

...:
Wh-huh? I'm... sorry? I didn't mean to be rude...

Hahaha... foolish Mortals. Haha.

But you're... didn't you just say something about eternal servitude? The Demon who said he was your underling... he never said anything about that. And then you said something about desperate mortals and...

So don't do that.

Never mind all that. You and I have an agreement to discuss. A Contract.

You do know what that means, don't you?

I... y-yes, I do.

Not... not the eternal servitude thing. What the other Demon said earlier.

Yeah. I know what you need in return. I offer it freely.

Just, please. My daughter. She's so sick. We've tried doctors and... and shamans, and... everything. No one can do anything for her.

But I will use all power at my disposal to restore her, as fully as possible. And I will see no harm done to her, through my aid.

Alright.

Ughhhhhhhh...

Goethe? Are you still on the line?

Just... tell Bennet to send the Eidolon across. We've got ourselves a deal.


Goethe:
Will do, boss. Awesome work, by the way! Love that Queen spiel every time.

And can I just say? That recovery after the bit you flubbed was...

Marlowe: *blip*

...and you, little Eidolon. We'll be in touch soon, as well. Do remember our agreement, once you make it over there.

And, of course, best wishes with your new start on Theia. Ta ta, for now.

You are Cassowary Flynn. Though you usually go by Cassie. Because, like, seriously... bird names, Mom and Dad?

What were they thinking!

Anyway, you've got a lecture you should be at right now. But you kinda didn't finish your homework last night. To be fair, you were distracted by some stuff all afternoon. After that, you just felt too exhausted to do it, and took a quick nap. And, through no fault of your own, maaaybe that nap turned into a whole night's sleep?

Whatever. No sense dwelling on that now. You should be heading to class. Though, getting chewed out in front of everyone for being late doesn't sound fun. And you haven't though up an excuse for not having your homework done either. TBH, part of you really doesn't want to go to class. You kinda want to just skip, today. Go somewhere else. Anywhere, really. You know you shouldn't, but... still.

What do you do?
