The Devil Lies

Whatever it was, it wanted what was under those stairs.  Mikey had to stop him; he thought about screaming, crying for help but that would just complicate things--and his father would hear about it.  Whatever happened, he had to deal with it himself. There was no question of turning around, not anymore. He knew what the thing wanted. Blood, and power.  

A Day To Remember

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
