A Pause in Hostilities

Michael was patient while he waited for the scheduled time of his appointment and busied himself looking at all the ‘Lost’ notices posted outside the heavy, rusted gates. It was some sort of joke, he assumed, to have notices for lost souls outside the gates of Hell. After an hour a minor devil – how much more insulting could his brother be? – showed him into Lucifer’s suite. He knelt before the coven hooves, as was customary before looking up into those familiar liquid eyes that he once drowned in. “Brother,” he said, standing to kiss Lucifer’s cheek, “We have an enemy in common. This Darwin chap and his Evolution theory will ruin us all if it takes hold.”
