People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life…
The body of the demon lay still in front of the demon Hunter’s feet. A single piece of parchment stuck out from his bag he had been carried, thick curly black letters peeking out with the paper. It would be odd, as this particular demon wasn’t anyone of special standing.
If the letter was opened, the horrific message would be as followed.
“The myth is true. She is a real person and she still lives on today. She threatens our position in this world and all that we have worked towards. She could kill us within seconds, so we must be strategic. She goes by the name of Elizabeth and is unlike any demon we’ve faced before; one of the last of her kind in this area. You must be careful and not be lured in by what you see. She is a master of seduction and gets what she wants if she so pleases. If we want to save ourselves, we must end her. She travels during night. Find her.”
Seriously? I thought we were done with that last rotation!
So, I locked Sully in the boys’ bathroom, and had Scot make him some comfort soup, which cured him nicely, so hopefully we’re really done with the flu now.
The rest of the evening was spent gardening, taking care of Elizabeth, having dinner and doing homework.
In the morning, Scot and the kids headed off to school, and Sadie was left home with Elizabeth. She spent her day gardening, looking after Elizabeth and playing computer games, and then called for Elizabeth’s birthday party about the time Sal and Sully got home from school.
