THE DAY I LEARNT I WAS A DEMON WAS THE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE. I won’t lie. I spent most the day terrified of dying or losing a limb.
The first thing I heard and thought about when I woke that morning was demons. A were-cat scream echoed for a beat, before an answering scream, higher in pitch, called in the distance. It sounded like the packs were fighting; a territorial dispute most likely. There was a Pride not too far from the Temple. A muffled shriek drifted up through the floorboards. I rolled my eyes when it happened again on the next scream. I buried my head under the pillow, pulling my blanket up. New Disciples thought the world was ending every time a demon passed nearby. It took them a long time to understand, if the Wall was breached the klaxon went off to warn us.
