The Demon Who Prays
Carlston B. Maglangit
I was accused of starting this pandemic, a disease with no cure. I fell in love with the devil's offer to make me beautiful. In return, I offered him seven souls-a pact I was not completely ready for, because the seventh soul is the one I truly love, Miguel. I broke that deal, and the devil was not happy about this. And then, he started to collect the souls himself, by spreading the disease that started in the town of Santa Filomena, a flesh-eating virus that gave its victims a glimpse of hell through unbearable pain. If one gives in, the devil is assured of the soul.
