Chapter Four: Smoky Maiden:
Jessie’s mother breathed in the smoke around her. She hadn’t experienced this thrill in years. She ruled over her domain in hell, but lately things were getting boring. Jessie ran away months before and her mother didn’t have her favorite toy to abuse. The woman took another drink.
That girl gives me headaches, she thought. The woman never wanted to be a mother. She didn’t even know that she was pregnant. Jessie’s mother frowned at the memories of her daughter as a baby.
I should’ve killed her when I had the chance, she thought. Her latest toy sat down next to her.
“Are you okay?” he asked. The demon woman sighed.
“No,” she said.
“What’s wrong?” He placed his hands on her shoulders, but she shoved him off.
“Not now!” the woman hissed. Her toy pouted at her, frowning.
“I wish I could help,” he whimpered. Jessie’s mother turned to him with a little smile on her face.
“Soon,” she murmured. She kissed him on the lips. The surge made her toy weaker. Jessie’s mother had to hold him up.
“Easy there,” she whispered. Her toy rested against her big breasts.
“I’m okay,” he said in a weak voice. “I just… want to… help… you…” He died in her arms. Jessie’s mother brushed aside the toy’s hair.
“That’s good for now,” she whispered. “You served me well.” She rested him on the dusty ground.
“Your heart is now mine, beautiful man,” the demon murmured. She put her hand on his chest and sank her nails inside. His still heart brought her tears. He was one of the good ones too. This dark-haired young man didn’t die the first time she rode him. For seven months, he stayed by her side. Seven long months, together. Jessie’s mom, Jade, felt a little sad.
You were so good, she thought. Jade bit into the heart. The taste of the blood made her head spin. His heart didn’t last long in her hands. Jade licked up the blood afterwards. She healed his chest closed. The nameless toy was buried where he lay. Jade moved on alone.
She could smell her daughter again. You won’t escape this time. Jade picked up her her cell phone.
“Yeah, hello?” she asked. “Yeah. I need you to do something for me.” Jade’s lips curved into a smirk.
“Excellent,” she purred. “I am counting on you.” Jade hung up before disappearing into the sky.
Jessie gasped in her bed with a shock to her body. Momma! Momma! I don’t want to die! Please don’t kill me! Her screaming filled the silence in her mind.
At the front door, Hisoka waited. Around seven o’clock, help arrived. The shinigami drew open the door.
“I’m glad you’re here,” he said.
