I stopped by to share with you, a short "tease" from chapter 14 of Isles End:
Abaddon and Scratch both became rigid as the man casually strode up to them. He stood and stared at them for a moment and began to laugh, slow at first, then uncontrollably. In a jerky motion, his laugh turned into a howl as the two devils stood there staring back mutely. Then, just as quickly as he had begun laughing, the man was silent. The bewildered demons watched as the gaunt figure sauntered forward, bearing down on them with his dark hollow eyes. Halting before them, he stared at the two puzzled figures, opened his mouth again, and out crept the deep resonant voice of Gorguol.
“Yes, I do take pleasure in manipulating humans to commit vile and murderous deeds,” he said as he looked down and studied the bloody condition of his expensive suit and tie. Stepping even closer until he was inches from the other two, he opened his mouth again.
“You must learn to co-exist in harmony if you expect to accomplish anything.” He spoke calmly, but with force. “I will be dreadfully disappointed if I do not see some significant results—very soon!” He pushed his face against them so that his flesh made contact. Raising his hand up to his face, he scraped his thumb nail so hard into the skin of his forehead that a gash opened and began to bleed instantly. With that, he added in a barely audible whisper, “Go now!”
Maybe you will take a closer look?
Thanks, Joe :o)
