Of Doom and Fries: Dark powers and deep fries don't mix. It's not an old cliché, I know, but i try to stay innovative like that. Makes things more interesting. It had started out a rainy day, the kind that's supposed to be evil-free, unlike the sunny days, which usually end with people getting shot, killed, or cats, not that the last one is unpleasant, but the treatment you get usually is around these parts. But i digress.
As i was saying, it looked to be a decently boring day, until some idiot dropped an Ancient Evil Artifact (or an AEA) into the deep frier. One of those situations where you'd think the fellow would barely have time to say "OH SHI-" before being incinerated. Not the case.
What did happen was that the kid working the frier had bought a cool old bracelet secondhand,
a bracelet that just so happened to have been used for binding demons, wouldent you know it.
2.50 too, old brass and leather, a hundred demons all merging from being crammed into the small charms, fusing into a hive mind, full of loathing at being sold for such a low price....
well, maybe not, but probably. I would be rather peeved at being sold for 2.50 myself.
But this kid, he's working the deep frier, right? and old leather being old leather, cracks and dumps itself into the frier. Without him noticing. Or maybe he doesn't want to notice.
As luck would have it, hot oil
