This is the tale of how a human came to be an angel... It isin't uncommon considering all angels were at some point human... however this particular human was born without a soul... to acquire such a thing was impossible... knowing he would never go to paradise he vowed to become a demon
when the time of his death came he had to choose between wandering the earth as a ghost or becoming a demon... he Could not become an angel for he never had nor will ever acquire a soul. Not wanting to be forgotten he decided he would become a powerful demon whose name inspired terror in the heard of both the living and the dead.
His skin turned the darkest black and leathery wings whit talons sprouted on his back... he felt hes blood boiling while his new pure black bottomless eye pierced the night veil as if it was plain day. On this night the new born demon setted on a quest to acquire proper demonic skills.
It was quite funny actually... the one who vowed himself to evil was tainted whit goodness...when he killed he killed murderer and rapist... when he destroyed he destroyed evil.
He decided to slaughter the next four humans that would be unfortunate enough to cross his path... surely he thought slaughtering people was truly an evil deed.
However when he did find four man walking in the wood he hold true to his promises and slaughtered them whit an evil smile quite happy to finally do something bad and be on his way to become suitable demon... sadly he was astonished to see a white feather sprouting on his back.
What he didn't know was that those men had a black heart... as black as the blood flowing trough the demon's veins they were were assassin for hire ans were coming back from a particularly nasty job involving a wealthy man's wife and his kids.
Slowly he began to notice a few white feather sprouting on his pitch black wings. Infuriated he plucked them... and was even more resolved to do evil deed... after all a demon whit white feathered wings would be a real mockery dare a say ridiculous amongst the demon realm.
He walked for days thinking... what Could he do... what truly evil deed would turn him into the demon he wanted to be. After all if he was to be mocked by his fellow demonic friend surely it was no better then being a wandering ghost... he had to fix this before more white feather started to sprout in front of other demons.. because until now he was able to pluck them before anyone Could see them.
Our demon decided to go on a quest to discover whats it meant to be evil. Taking a human form he walked south more resolved then ever to become a proper demon.
On the first day he saw a teenage boy trowing stones to a little girl... surely it was a truly evil act to toss stone to such a small defenseless child. He approached the boy asking why did he do such a thing.
Because i can do it.
Then he walked away... not understanding the boy statement... why attacking such a fragile innocent being only because he could. This was ridiculous... maybe the next person he met would give him a better answer.
On the second day he saw a grown man beating his wife as his she was made of wood... knowing this to be truly nasty deed he approached the man asking him why he did such a thing.
Because she does not obey me.
Again the demon was surprised... surely the women would not obey her husband if she was injured... she would lose the love she had and please him less.. she would leave him for someone kinder... Maybe the next man would provide him whit a suitable answer. He was becoming more impatient since more and more feather kept sprouting on his wings.
On the third day he saw someone committing murder in a dark alley... He approached and again asked why would someone do such a thing. Hoping to receive a better answer then those provided by the last two person.
I do it for the money.
Truly the demon was puzzled why would a man be willing to taint his immortal soul and suffer eternal pain in hell only to gain some money he would spend in a few weeks. He who was born without a soul could not understand how could a man hold such a lithe value to his most prised possession... his soul.
Maybe human were just committing evil without understanding the meaning of it... He decided to go ask the true meaning of evil to a fellow demon.
After a week he finally found a demon in a dark forest feasting on the body of a dead wolf... making sure to pluck every single feather in his back before going out of hiding he approached the demon and asked him if he could explain the true meaning of being evil... he desired to find the essence of demonic power he told the other demon.
Go find a newborn baby and kill slowly it in the most painful way you can imagine. Then you will know what is the true meaning of evilness.
Our demon set out yet on a another quest to find a newborn baby.
It took a while but he found a nursery in the local hospital... taking the appearance of the new mother's husband he took the baby telling her he wanted to show the lithe bundle of joy to his friend in the corridor.
He found an empty room where he looked at the kid whit the firm intention of doing what the other demon told him to do... but when his claw touched the soft warm skin of the baby he found out that he was unable to cause harm to such an innocent thing. His fellow demon friend would truly laugh if they could see the child smiling in his arms not the least bit afraid by his fearful appearance.
Putting back the newborn in his crib he ran away in the forest ashamed for he now knew his life as a demon was a failure... he could not do evil... he couldn't even go back to the other demons since they were now so many feather on his wings he could not pluck them all.
Why... how come he was unable to commit evil... was he not a demon... was he not fearless... was he not without a soul.
Deciding that since he was a failure as a demon he might as well do what he wanted to do he wandered the earth helping people thinking that if he could not understand evil maybe he could understand goodness.
When he saw man caring for his sick mother he asked him why did he do such a thing... surely it was bothersome to take care of an elderly lady.
Because i love her.
Yes... that make sense to our demon... to take care of what you hold dear to your heart... this he could understand remembering his days as a human when he had a puppy... the only living thing he ever loved.
A while later maybe six or seven day he found a men helping his neighbor chopping wood for the winter... this was truly something nice so he asked the man why did he helped freely his neighbor.. surely is demanded great effort to do this.
We help each other
Yes it was logic that someday the man might need help to from his neighbor. The demon understood it since both man benefited from the help.
A month later the demon saw an old man laying on the grass whit a strained ankle.. he could not walk by himself... for the first time in his long life as a demon he helped someone... walking the man home because he found that he was unable to leave him to die in the forest... the strangest thing is that he could not understand why he did it... it required effort from him... it was bothersome and he would surely gain nothing from helping the old man. Why did he helped him.
Thank you kind young man.
Then he knew... because it felt good inside...
Over the next few month he kept helping people not caring anymore about what the other demon might think if they saw him... he was a shame as a demon but at least he loved the way he lived. His body kept changing loosing the dark color of his skin, his eye turning bluer witch each day... looking at himself he wasn't sure he could still call himself a demon but he wasn't a ghost and he could not be an angel.. it was impossible since he knew he was born without a soul.
Until one day he saw a man looking like him flying down from the sky... he wanted him to come to heaven...
Surely you must be wrong... i was born without a soul. I cannot go to heaven.
Silly you... don't you see that you are not soulless anymore. I say have a soul... its glowing brightly we could see it shine from the cloud in heaven. Now come whit me you don't belong on earth anymore there's a place for you in heaven.
