Conversations between an Angel and Demon
I wonder why I'm right and you're wrong. Is it because I have wings and you have horns? Is it because they say I'm an angel and you're one that jumped from the clouds?
You know it's more than that. You know it's my nature to be wicked. It's my duty to take the blame, to be the scapegoat.
It isn't fair. I don't care what they say. I do bad things too.
No you don't. Everything about you is flawless and pure. You could never bring evil to this world.
Why are you crying?
I killed them.
What are you talking about? You can't kill! It's against your nature!
But I did! I was just trying to help…
Calm down and tell me.
I can't. You won't understand.
I'm not an angel, I've killed for all the wrong reasons, and right ones too. You can tell me.
There are no right reasons.
Despite what they tell you killing isn't always bad.
Don't joke, it's not funny.
I'll stop if you stop changing the subject. And I wasn't joking
I wanted to make them happy…so I gave them more to make up for it. But I gave them too much.
Too much of what?
Pills. I gave them too many pills.
You did that?
Yes, don't you understand? They needed an escape; I had to give it to them. They were killing each other!
So you let them kill themselves? And I thought I was irrational and ruthless
They said it wasn't killing! I was helping them!
Help them do what? Destroy themselves? Did they tell you reading is bad too?
They said that reading would distort our ideas of right and wrong. They wouldn't tell me to kill; they promised me I was doing the right thing.
They lied to you.
NO! …why can't you understand?! They weren't happy! I was doing the right thing!
I wonder why you're good and I'm bad. Here you are torturing people with greed and abuse, and here I am saving them with death. Shouldn't I be good, if not innocent?
I told you there was no difference between good and bad.
The difference is your ignorance. You believe in what they tell you, did you ever question there leadership? Did you ever think about right and wrong when you handed them their destruction?
Where are you going? How can you get mad at me for being wrong? You admitted to killing, that's wrong too.
I killed to bring them relief. I'm going to tell the others; we need more demons and now is a good time to recruit; Considering the situation you've provided. Maybe they'll begin to wonder why wrong is called right and right is called wrong.
Is that why you jumped? You were tired of lies?
I didn't jump; I was simply labeled a fallen angel from the beginning.
What do you mean you were simply labeled? Everyone's an angel first!
Don't worry; I wouldn't have liked it much anyways, but I suppose we'll never know.
Will I talk to you again?
Would you be willing to fall?
How can you ask that?
How can you pretend you're destruction doesn't exist?
I'm glad you finally realized it, but I should leave.
I'll miss you.
You can come visit me you know.
You know I can't
Forget I mentioned it.
