WeWriWar 236: Demon Soul

Welcome to a new excerpt of DEMON SOUL for the Weekend Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday.

Brownie is a normal girl, or so she thinks. She likes to chat with her sisters about random things, she likes fashion and she is member of the fashion club at school. But one day, as her little brother gets really sick because of a curse placed on him, she meets this really strange guy who cures him absorbing the baby's sickness within himself. As he is about to fall from his new acquired fever, Brownie sees Yue's soul and immediately falls in love with him. But Yue is not a human, Yue is a demon.
Brownie and Yue will built their love story until....

Until Yue's soul is stolen. There is nothing left of their love. The purple light dancing in Yue's grey eyes is gone. Forever? Not quite. Brownie is desperate to find it back. And to get a soul stolen by demons, she needs to go deep into dark magic! But Brownie is not a witch, she is just looking for a spell powerful enough to bring her love back. When an amateur starts playing with strong magic without preparation and without caring for the consequences, things turn wrong...

Let's start right where we left off

She tried to keep the baby away but Yue didn't listen and stroke his back again.
"Yes, mine," he answered agitating his restless wings.
A white light came out of his hand and as he spoke magic words in ancient Greek, Ayokunle's wings grew so fast that Brownie could see them change with her own eyes.
Ayokunle was fine; not crying anymore just enjoying his new wings, but Yue's wings had changed to a brownish colour and he was burning with fever. She tried to help him but he pushed her away.
"I don't need your help little girl. I'm fine. Take care of the baby," he said.
And he left as he had appeared, leaving her with a weird feeling.

  1. Sounds like he's having some private conversation with someone unseen. Making a bargain, maybe?

  2. There's always a trade off... I have a feeling Yue knows exactly what he's offering up.

  3. Oh my--he is so dismissive of her. Makes the courtship a challenge! :-)

  4. He's giving up his power for the child. Scary business.

  5. Complicated snippet. He saves the child? Yet he's a demon? Or am I just confused? It's been that kind of day.

    I forgot to sign up in time, but I did post.

  6. Obviously the meaning of 'demon' in this fictional world is different than in ours. Even if he's a hero, he doesn't wear a white hat, if you know what I mean.
