The Ruined


” I trusted you! ” his eyes were bright, his breath was sharp he pushed his face close to hers.

” I did everything you asked of me, gave everything I promised to give, I broke the rules, changed the rules, I ended lives, I set the hills and sky on fire for you. “

She looked down and he was sure she was smiling.

That’s the way she was, that’s the way she had been since the day she drew her first breath and it sailed down her throat to her empty chest and the place where her heart should have been.

” We had a deal. You made me a promise. You said you’d give me your love and you Soul. I thought you were perfect. ” he closed his eyes and welcomed the darkness he saw there.

That darkness, that abyss was reminded him of her.

His heart burned, it ached, it was no more.

His eyes flew open and burned into hers.

” You are oblivion. You are a cheat. You are a lie. “

She raised her hands to his face, reached up and rested them on his horns.

” And you, my poor sad creature  are a trusting Devil.”
