I am back! thank goodness!
Back where I belong on Sunday
The Soul Collector’s Second Chance is about a group of four couples, consisting of four who work as part of the mid-management team for the devil, Mr.D, as soul collectors, and their partners, who are human.
Back to the Thanksgiving scene
And remember: Long- term romantic liaisons with mortals by members of the Devil’s mid-management team were forbidden by the Regulations.
Two of the couples have been together two years, one couple for ten years and Phoebe and Gideon four months at this point.
And yes, two weeks to go and I am taking liberties.
Phoebe POV. She just learned about the Regulation.
Tears threatened to pour down her cheeks like the rain cascading out the windows. She felt herself start to tremble. Gideon reached out a comforting arm but she shook him off.
“Don’t do that! Don’t treat me as a child! This is serious. I found you. I need you. I’ve waited over a century to be with you as we were meant to be.
This is important. I can’t have some Regulation hanging over my, our, heads,” she peered at each person around the table, “that conceivably could mean that the Devil,” contempt dripped at the word, her eyes rolled, followed by a snap of fingers, “could destroy everything in an instant. Does he know what’s going on? Does he even care? Maybe he isn’t as evil as you give him credit for. We must do something!”
Oh, I can feel her desperation. Nice six! 🙂
thanks Jess it’s good to be home
I like the new title!
it’s not carved in stone..
I hear her desperation. Wonder if Mr. D is open to negotiations?
see next week 😀
I would think, from most lore and literature, etc., that the devil would be willing to a make a deal. The question is would the price be worth it? Great six, Sue. Her emotions come through fiercely.
remember I am not writing traditional literature – nice to see you!
I bet a deal could be struck, but it most likely will come with a hefty price. Great six!!
I read yours – very nice but could not see how to comment
Aww, poor thing. Nice emotion!
Poor Phoebe. According to tradition the devil doesn’t much care about rules being obeyed, but I suppose he might feel differently about his rules. On the other hand, perhaps breaking the rules in his organization can put one in line for a promotion? That would be a twist. Maybe there’s a clause in the employment contract that’s been overlooked until now. Are any of them lawyers?
Brilliant comment Kate 😀
I think Phoebe’s desperation is showing if she thinks the Devil is not as evil as he’s cracked up to be. She needs to be careful, any deal with the devil is bound to come at a price you can’t afford to pay. The simplest thing he might do is turn her into a soul-collector too. How might she–or Gideon for that matter–feel about that? This work sets up all kinds of interesting questions! Great job, Sue!
oh just wait til next week ..
Whoa, clutching at straws there a bit. That shows her desperation very well.
Welcome back *hugs*
thanks 😀 desperate not clutching
That’s interesting. If the devil forbids long term relationships, how long does he consider a short one to be? Does the devil even consider time as we do?
The regulaltion is limited to 30 days. And yes he does
The poor girl! So desperate. Hope she finds a way to make things work out the way she wants.
of course she does 😀
I like this. It feels like something significant is about to happen.
it is – appreciate the comment
I cackle every time I read “mid-management team”. And I love that long-term relationships are forbidden, but everyone is in one. LOL This is great — looking forward to what’s next. 🙂
yes a resolution is needed lol
