Jasfoup looked away.
There are some things that even a demon cannot bear to witness, and the product of the three angels Suriel, Sansuriel and Semangelof was one of them. It wasn’t what they did – carry out God’s punishment on a woman who dared to accept what was freely given – but the relish and enthusiasm with which they did it.
Lilith bore a hundred children every day, a hundred children which the three angels took delight in butchering, raining the corpses into the abyss where the first inhabitant of Sheol used the bones for his sculptures.
After six thousand years, Abel was a very good sculptor.
