Challenging a Demon—Idiot Number 73,854
By: Louise Findlay

Eventually the prattling mortal came.
"I am Liamus Titus, scourge of Valeria and the Dark Lands. I am sworn to defeat you, you foul beast," spat Liamus.
This would make idiot number 73,854. This was getting old, fast. I might have to go look for a real challenge someday.
I stepped forward menacingly. "Fool! For sixteen thousand years I have slain mortal men. I have annihilated empires, burned continents, and plucked the mightiest of kings from their thrones! If I could be killed, it would have been done already."
"With the might of the holy sword, Briusburn, I will defeat you," the idiot yelled, brandishing his sword.
What is it with heroes and their idiotic war cries? Insignificant mortal.
"Really. Just keep telling yourself that," I replied.
"Perhaps you did not hear me, demon scum," Liamus sneered, dragging the sword behind him. The blade flashed and sparkled in his heavy grip. With every step forward, the young man's eyes grew darker. "I hold Briusburn!"
I took my sword out of its scabbard and parried his first attack.
God he was so slow. Mortals always were compared to the speed I possessed. I parried all of his strikes with ease and looked on absent-mindedly as he tried to come up with creative ways to attack me.
"Seriously. Did you fail Sword Fighting 101?” I asked with disdain.
"Fiend! I happened to get an A+ from Voriay Du Lac's School of the Sword," he replied.
"Voriay, how is he? I spared his life once. Now he was a warrior! Name calling's not going to do much to me you know," I said smoothly.  I was a demon; I'd been called every name under the sun.
"Voriay is dead. I killed him," he told me.
