Aidan would almost certainly receive the favor. A favor promised by an upper level demon was a binding contract, and his brother could ask for anything, including all the power that was Adramelech’s to offer.
Every human has the potential for good and the potential for bad within him, and every single thing that happens affects his path.
His brother was everything that a fire demon was supposed to be, and he, Keegan, was not.
Adramelech is using you for some wicked end. For all you know, it is a trap set to allow the Prince to finally take your power.
All of those pale blue pieces of grace were no more. Feeding demons were supposed to take just a bit of each one before shepherding it to the abyss...Parts of the souls were meant to be shepherded to the abyss, where they can ruminate on the fate they have wrought for themselves. They cannot be extinguished fully.
There will be a price to pay for your greed, and I only hope that it falls on you for once.
But Aidan got everything, didn't he? He got to feel every human sensation and truly walk as one of them. Aidan wasn't frozen in time. He could actually change his human body; work out and make it stronger. If they stayed long enough, he'd probably even grow taller. Keegan had been given a corporeal vessel, nothing more. He could feel his useless heart pumping away. He needed to breathe and could experience certain senses, but that was all. He was still a demon—just imprisoned in fancy flesh packaging. It wasn't fair.
The offspring was a paradox of mental weakness and physical fortitude that had taken two hundred years to create and shape.
It seemed a tough upkeep, being human. Took a long time each day, it seemed, for Aidan to make himself publicly presentable.
