“Are you sure this is the right doorway?”
“They said to look for a creepy stone face with a winged helmet.”
“But it’s not even a doorway. This is just a blank wall.”
“This is the Gateway! Have I taught you nothing?”
“I expected it to be bigger.”
Alastor closed his eyes and took a deep breath. “Serax, I brought you on this mission for a reason.”
“Yes, Master,” the little demon hung his head. “Do you get the feeling that face is watching—”
Michael, the archangel, blinked his flaming eyes once and retreated back into the stone.

i liked the use of angels and demons as characters. and glad to know that heaven’s gate is well-guarded. (ok, maybe i shouldn’t be too glad about that, lol) great story
Thank you! I decided to just have some fun with it, so I’m glad you liked it!
DON’T BLINK!!!!! (See, if you watched Doctor Who you’d get the Weeping Angels reference, but you don’t, so….)
Did I mention you would LOVE Doctor Who, darling? Incidentally, if I’m commenting here, doesn’t that mean that….. why yes it does.
These two reminded me of your magical archaeologists from a while back — not that I’m saying these two weren’t great, but the voices read as eerily similar.
I know, I KNOW. I’ll get around to the good Doctor eventually. I hear Boston winters drive everyone into hibernation, huddling hopelessly around the hub that is Netflix.
I was thinking of them when I wrote it, so that could certainly be why. I liked those guys…maybe they’ll make a come back.
Clever little tale, and yes, so like Dr Who and The Weeping Angels, who become very terrifying, but really look stupid, like that stone head!
I guess I can take a hint! Consider the Doctor moved up in my queue.
Glad you liked it! Thanks for reading.
“retreated back into the stone” that’s scary. Nicely done.
Thank you–I was rather proud of that line!
That was fun!
Glad you liked it–I wanted to try something a little lighter than my usual FF fare!
Clever dialogue and use of demons and angels = fantastic!
Thank you! I’ve said it before, but watching so much Supernatural lately is really leaking into my writing. It’s just too fun to pass up!
It snuck up in the best ways. 🙂
That was fun.
Glad you thought so! Thanks for stopping by
Very graphic, I could imagine a doorway that wasn’t a door and the flaming eyes. Well done.
Thank you, Sandra!
How cutely wicked!Loved that the demons got zapped-so much for the master,lol!
The good guys have to win on occasion! Thanks for reading.
So true-I like good winning-always 🙂
yes I think the Dr. who fans will find more than one episode to encourage you
I liked the “dumb” demon – too late
Well, they can’t ALL be mad geniuses! Glad you enjoyed it.
That was great! All demons should be heroically zapped by an angel–even our many inner demons 😉
Wouldn’t that just be the greatest? Thanks for reading!
The saints win out over the sinners… But not in the way you’d expect! Well done!
An amusing little glimpse into celestial mechanics. I enjoyed the demise of the demon. Well done.
I don’t know how Michael got relegated to being the Exterminator, but someone’s gotta do it! Thanks for reading.
Never mess with an archangel. Loved the image of the little demon getting zapped.
I chuckled at the demons thought that the doorway should be bigger. I like the human projection of thought onto supernatural creatures. This was a fun story, especially the zapping. 🙂
I guess for a deamon it’s even harder than for a camel to pass through the eye of the needle—
LOL Nice take on the prompt.
Thank you! Thanks for reading.
