Nine Months Before Diablo's Birth, Season of the Crow
Jenny had always wanted a child, and her husband knew this. Unfortunately for the two of them, Jenny's husband was impotent, and could not give her the child she so desired. while depression had befallen the two, they tried their best to return to their regular lives as if nothing was wrong. But what jenny's husband didn't know was, while jenny was alone at home with her husband working to keep a roof over their heads, Jenny would pray.
Mind you, this prayer was not to any specific god or goddess, no, this was to whom any that would help her in her time of need for a child. Her prayer was simple and to the point, "I pray to any whom could help me, please allow me to bare child for my husband." Jenny would chant this endlessly, tirelessly up until her husband would come home. Jenny would continue this godless prayer for weeks until one night she was finally answered.
Storms had filled the skies that night, the lighting streaking hotly across the skies as Jenny had kneeled down to pray. Before she could even start, a being appeared before her. smoke filled the room and a evil laugh had ripped though the silence of the room. Frozen in fear Jenny strained her eyes to she whom was before her. While the smoke slowly cleared Jenny would realize that what stood before her was no god, nor goddess.
It was a demon, but as she watched on she realized that she couldn't make out any defining features, as she began focusing on any one feature of the demon it would instantly shift, not allowing her to make out what or whom this demon was. "I have heard you pray endlessly for weeks now, and with that no god nor goddess had come to your aid." The demons voice was rich with malice and dripped of mockery "Do you feel you should really pray to any of those supposed 'gods' if they couldn't answer a poor woman's cry for help with the need for a wee lil' babe?"
Jenny looked down in shame. The demon wasn't wrong, she has heard of miracles far greater than that of a birth of a child. She began to weep into her hands, completely submitting to the demons statements. The demon grinned a crooked grin and continued "If you want a child so bad, I can give you the newborn you so desire."
"Yes please! I'll do anything! I swear on my life, I will!" Jenny had cried out before thinking about what she had said, and would soon live to regret those exact words. The demon had taken her by the hand and quietly taken a single claw and pin pricked her palm, with that a small black scar had appeared on her hand.
"There all done, bed your mate tonight, and you will give birth to a healthy baby. Be warned though. You have paid a price and you will forget this meeting as soon as i leave. the deal is as follows, for I have given you life so shall you give life unto me. You and your husband with forfeit your lives soon after your Childs thirtieth birthday. that is all."
With that the demon disappeared and Jenny soon forget all about her encounter with the demon.
