Six

Summary

The demon that Hafida al-Razi made a deal with to find the location of the first Horseman sends her a message.   "A present for you, pick it up and the deal's done. 18 Epiphanies Drive. 612-17. Signed--Your Dream Girl"   This is a shipping company storage yard. The numbers lead to a big metal shipping crate. Inside is simply a body of a human male. The body's ankles and wrists are broken with what should be open fractures, though the skin is not torn. His eyes are cloudy as though he's been dead for a long time but there are no other external signs of decay..which there should be. If they look in his mouth, his tongue has been cut away.   If they do an autopsy (or one is done elsewhere) they will discover that his body is in bad shape, having been sliced and cut, his internal organs covered in scar tissue, even though he shows now outward signs of damage. If they continue looking, they will see that there is a tattoo on the inside of his skin in the chest area wrapping aorund to the back. It is Arameic.   12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 And the stars of the heavens fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?   Congrats! the Sixth Seal has just been opened! And then the earthquakes come....   (Also, I need some kind of conflict here....maybe an angel out to stop them? I dunno....I'll think of something when it comes up.)
