My Horrific Note of the Week – The Grim Reaper
The Grim Reaper is a spectral entity that is said to be the sentient manifestation of Death itself. Since the 15th century, Death has commonly been perceived to be an animated human skeleton, draped in pitch black robes and carrying a scythe. With this scythe, the Reaper severs the soul’s last ties to life and grants the soul safe passage to the afterlife.
The Grim Reaper has often – falsely – been depicted as an evil spirit that preys on mortals. In truth, however, they are neither evil nor good, merely a force of nature and order. Death is a fundamental part of life and it is the Grim Reaper’s duty to claim the souls of the deceased so as to maintain the balance of nature. The Reaper does not “kill” mortals, but merely guides their spirits to the next realm and it is not their place to judge souls or determine what will become of them.
Extract from Stained Torment
Not to mention the acidic oil, which continued to drip, drip…drip, as the demon army went about their chores. The educated ear of Lucifer, Lord of Darkness, Satan himself, call him what you like, could pinpoint their exact location. By the muffled demoniac roars from beneath his feet, he realized that this time; it was not a sacrifice to him, but an act of savage cannibalism. They were hungry today and someone didn’t listen to their commander, or so he thought. All the while, his soul laughed and jumped inside like a heroin-induced party clown after a few shots of homemade cheap vodka.
‘What a shame,’ reckoned Lucifer.
That would make them appreciate the creatures they catch a lot more. Generally, as an unwritten rule – the mob wouldn’t waste any time, it’s always better to eat the meat straight off the bone while the blood is still warm and flowing. Evidently, it adds to the flavor and there are no salt or pepper requests during an eating frenzy. Such scenes were as regular as the constant dripping sound of Hell’s acid oil wells. The scene resembled a piranha attack on an unsuspecting capybara trying to cross the Amazon River, but with a lot more mayhem and thrilling entertainment. Lucifer had seen and heard it all before but had no time to investigate if the victim was anyone of significance.
