I hated being demon bait. At least the one slithering on his belly between
ancient headstones couldn’t hide his true nature behind a glamour. His lethal
teeth, slimy body, and claws exposed him for what he really was. A monster.
Just like me.
My black military boots sank into the soggy ground of Colonial Park
Cemetery as I meandered around the cherub and angel statues, my grip
tightening on the dagger’s hilt where magic concealed the blade. I didn’t have
claws or devil horns, but darkness ran through my veins, and innocent blood
coated my hands.
Thanks to the ravens, I had a shot at redemption. And I sure as hell
wouldn’t let anything stand in my way, even if it meant slaughtering this subdemon and any other nightworlder who deserved it.
To be honest, most deserved it. They were lucky ravens followed the
I halted at a small gravestone and brushed away the coarse grime to
uncover the dates below the carving of prayer hands, my throat constricting at
the short lifespan. Susan Marie Johnson died at thirteen. Her life had been
severed before she ever really lived—just like Jayla.
A twig snapped, and I whipped around, my long ponytail slapping my
face. Spanish moss hanging from twisting oak branches drifted in the warm
wind like ghosts while the creaking of limbs produced an eerie cadence. The
sub-demon still lurked behind a tall statue, his stench crinkling my nose.
Nervous energy built within me, and sweat vanished into the black,
moisture-wicking shirt suctioned to my body. I’d melt in the brutal summer
heat of Savannah, Georgia before this creature attacked.
What the hell are you waiting for, demon?
Once this was over, I’d be cleared for The Calling spell tomorrow.
My fingers clenched and unclenched around the dagger, the warm metal
digging into my palm. I couldn’t bear the disappointment in Captain
Coltrane’s eyes if I botched my field test tonight.
I couldn’t fail. At anything. Ever again.
One by one, the lightning bugs winked out, leaving behind a thick shroud
of darkness. The crickets stopped chirping, and the cicadas’ repetitive song
ceased. Even the croak of frogs in the distance halted.
The hairs on my nape rose, and goose bumps scuttled along my arms like
writhing bugs. Tension solidified through the night, heavy and oppressive.
My muscles tightened, poised for battle.
A massive, slug-like animal lunged out of the shadows, short legs
carrying his slimy body across the slick grass. The grotesque thing, twice the
size of a Great Dane, opened his giant maw to reveal circular rows of razorsharp teeth that glistened with gooey saliva.
Adrenaline pumped through my veins. Damn, he was a nasty one.
When the sub-demon was close enough to make me gag on his fetid
breath as it poured over my face, I activated the dagger’s blade, jerked my
arm forward, and stabbed his neck.
