The Devil in the Details

PIP Headquarters
8:00 a.m.

*Indigo creeps into Abby's room, pitch black from the heavy drapes.*

Indigo: Wake up, Abby.  Something's wrong.  I can feel it all over.

Abby: I know. *sigh* I can smell him.  He's somewhere close by.

Indigo:  Why are you still in bed?

Abby *yanking the blanket over her head*: I don't want to deal with it right now.

Indigo:  Come on.  I've got goose pimples on my goose pimples.  Find out what he wants then maybe he'll leave and I can get some more sleep.

*Abby grunts, slings the blanket aside and huffs as she gets out of bed.  Stepping into a pair of jogging pants, she - followed by a flashlight-wielding Indigo - tiptoes through the dark headquarters to the front door.*

Abby: The scent of death is strongest here.  And put the flashlight away, Indy.  He's the devil, not that thing.

Indigo: Sorry, force of habit.

Abby *opening the door*: What do you want, Devourer?

Devourer: Good morning to you, Cleanser.  Hospitality not high on your list?  Don't answer that.  Here.

*Devourer hands Abby a USB.*

Abby:  What am I supposed to do with this?

Devourer:  Whatever you want.  *a mischievous smile curls his lips* Ta Ta.

*Turning away, Devourer strolls down the sidewalk with an air of perfection and ease.  Indigo yanks the USB from Abby, runs to the laptop and brings up the lone file saved on it.  Abby and Indigo both gasp.*

Abby: We're so dead.

Indigo: I'm so going to to hell.

  3. Hmmmm. It doesn't take much imagination to know that the Devourer delivering ANYTHING to your door could not be a good thing. And why do those girls seem so worried?

    1. LOL! Agreed. Can't see anything related to Devourer being a GOOD thing :-)
