Anthrocity 5: A Day In the Life of Inya

“UUGH! I need to go, another mystery or adventure today!” I said.

“Inya, what are you doing?” said Slade.

“I’m making a video about my life! I’m Inya, and this is my life! I’m an arctic fox who loves solving mysteries! And this is Slade, the wolf demon!” I said.

“Inya… I’m not a demon, remember? You banished my demonic powers to the Netherworld.”

The apartment had purple walls, orange floors, and green ceilings. It was warm, and when I walked out the door, the cold early springs wind blew against my white fur.

“Inya…”

“Who’s there?” I asked cautiously.

“In the alley.”

I walked around to the alley to see a Penguin with black hair, and a Puffin with blonde hair.

“Who are you?” I asked.

“Not your mother.” said the Penguin.

“We’re Guppy and Heifcliff, we run the Sarcastic Advice Column in The NEAAAT Times,” said the Puffin.

,The Penguin and Puffin stepped into the light. The penguin was male, obviously, and the puffin was obviously female.

“Turn the camera off, we don’t like flash pictures.” said the Penguin.

“Flash is off, and I’m filming, not taking pictures,” I said.

“Fine, listen, we heard you solve mysteries, we have a demon in our studio, so we need YOU to get rid of it… alone.” said the Puffin.

“WHAT! I NEED MY FRIENDS!” I screamed.

“Don’t yell, unless you want to be bored for the rest of the day, I suggest you help us.” said the Penguin.

“At least let me get Slade to help, he doesn’t even care enough to tell anyone who you are! I know Guppy and Heifcliff are not your real names. But NO ONE knows who runs sarcastic advice!” I said.

“Fine. He can help, just call us G and H. Ok?” said the penguin.

“Ok,” I said as I ran to get Slade. “SLADE!”  

“WHAT INYA?!” said Slade.

“C’MON I NEED YOU! YOU’RE GOOD WITH DEMONS AND GHOSTS RIGHT?” I yelled.

“Yeah, so?” he said uncaringly.

“SO… I need your help banishing a demon.” I said calmly.

“NO! I’M NOT GOING TO BANISH ONE OF MY FRIENDS!” said Slade.

“You’ll get paid with blood samples, y’know, for your blood collection?” said Inya.

“I’m in,” said Slade seriously.

“Welp, here’s the studio,” said H.

“It’s huge! You can see Big Ben from here!” said G.

“Really?” said Slade.

“HAHAHA no,” said G.

“So, how did this happen?” I said.

“Ouija.” said H.

“We played it because one of our fans asked us to record it and submit the link in the newspaper, so we did, and right when we said hello, it spelled out Satan.” said G.

“That’s one of the seven deadly sins,” said Slade.

“I thought that was the Devil?” I said.

“No, the name of the devil is unspeakable, even by us demons,” said Slade.

“What does Satan represent?” asked H.

“Wrath, the deadliest and evilest of all sins. We will need a Bible, a cross, and most of all, Hope.”  

“What’s that sound?” We walked into a room with a swirling vortex with a red wolf with black horns and a torn gray robe.

“DIE!” screamed Satan, hurling a sword at us.

“It’s me, brother! Slade!” said Slade.

“Hello, WEAKLING!” said Satan.

“Ugh, c’mon, I only helped them to be good, stop doing evil and we can all be free!” said Slade.

“NEVER! Wrath is what feeds me, what keeps me alive! And soon all my brothers will join soon!” said Satan.

“NO! DON’T!” the portal opened, and all the sins of the world poured out.

“See you later,” said Satan.

“DIE!” Slade grabbed a wooden cross he had sharpened at the end and went to Satan’s heart.

“UGH! Looks… like I… underestimated you… brother… eughhh….” In a poof of smoke, he was gone, and all that remained were bones, a cloak, and horns.

“It’s huge! You can see Big Ben from here!” said G.

“Really?” said Slade.

“HAHAHA no.” said G.

“So, how did this happen?” I said.

“Ouija.” said H.

“We played it because one of our fans asked us to record it and submit the link in the newspaper, so we did, and right when we said hello, it spelled out Satan.” said G.

“That’s one of the seven deadly sins,” said Slade.

“Goodbye H and G, see you later!” Slade and I said.

“Goodbye!” said G and H.

“Slade, I’m glad you chose to join the light side,” I said.

“…I am too. Now to find the other 6.” We ran home.

“And that’s my life! GOODBYE!” I said. Then I turned off the camera and went to sleep.

“You think they will ruin the plan honey?” said the Dark Fairy.

“No… Continue as planned, soon, I will rule Earth, and I will be one step closer to the pearly gates, then, we shall start our war…”
