This Monday resembled any other Monday, or so we wanted to believe. Yet a series of events are about to take place that will change our lives forever. We, as humans, will either survive and live as we were always meant to live, free of making our own decisions, or we will be destined to a world of eternal darkness, as Lucifer likes to call it ”Hell on Earth”. Our lives are in the hands of a five young protagonists, still unaware of their essential roles in the balance of Universal forces.
On this Monday morning, the New York subway station is crowed as usual. Sleepwalkers push and shove hoping to make it in time for their daily routine and not be late on a job they hate. They are called sleepwalkers because they have not awaken yet. They live day to day, paycheck to paycheck, afraid to live life on purpose and fulfill their life’s purpose. They live in a gray zone, between evil and good; between darkness and light. Lucifer loves them because they are easily manipulated and usually believe the puppets he waves in front of their credulous eyes.
They are attracted to wealth, money and possessions. They believe happiness is hidden in those material treasures and if they could only work harder, they would eventually be what they want to be, do what they want to do and live how they dream of living. Money is not evil nor good and there is no evil in having a lot of it. Evil lies in the intention by which we acquire what we seek. Some sleepwalkers are comforted by the light of their faith. Lucifer finds it a little harder to get to those individuals. He succeeds once in a while, slowly attracting them to darkness by feeding their envy, greed, anger, jealousy. Slowly, at times, he is able to lure them onto his side until they lose hope and faith.
It used to be much more difficult for Lucifer to bring darkness to the world as God had only to flick a switch and even the most tiniest lights would annihilate darkness. Nowadays, Lucifer is cheating. He found many ways to darken human souls. The Universal balance has shifted and our species could be lost forever.
As word of it came to God’s ears, he knew something had to be done. A pact had been set in place ages ago, before humans had been created. God and Lucifer had agreed that humans would be free to chose between darkness and light. That was their gift and what set them apart from every other species in the Universe. Lucifer had agreed. He was weaker then. He grew in strength fed by human negative intentions. He eventually designed a plan, a machine, that could turn human souls faster. He cheated and broke his promise to God.
God knew the time would come when Lucifer would use wicked ways to change the course of human kind, because Lucifer is what he is. When that time came, he called upon his soldiers, his Archangels and gave them a mission. They were to find five awaken souls, five earth Angels, who would find and destroy Lucifer’s machine. They were to arm and train them against dark lords and demons. And this is how they entered into our lives.
Archangels and armies of angels had fought many times against dark lords and armies of demons. Long wars that had massively decimated warriors on both sides. God and Lucifer had come into agreement of a truce. No more would Angels or demons bleed their respective blood upon the face of the Earth. That is when they agreed to create humans. God gave them a soul. Lucifer gave them an ego. And inside us humans, the battle between God and Lucifer would be fought until death would bring us to the camp we had chosen to fight for.
Until Lucifer cheated. This particular Monday, our story starts at a New York subway station. People pushing each other, complaining, looking at their watches, stumping their feet. Sarah makes her way through the crowd to get closer to the edge of the platform.
A twenty five year old grunge wearing black ripped stockings, black shorts, a couple of tank tops covered with a black leather jacket, few various long necklaces, lots of bracelets. She looks tough and rebellious with her army haircut apart for one long stray covering half her childlike face coated in dark eye liner and lipstick. A book about medieval history sticks out of the backpack she is holding in one hand. In the other hand, a gym bag is slightly opened so that her samurai sword can fit in.
