The Souls I Crushed

I looked below me to see what I fell on.

It was dead roses. They were that murky brown color except that each rose was now smashed into itty bitty little pieces.

I looked around and saw stairs leading downward that were covered in lively blood red roses. 

"Excuse me!" I called out to the demon while getting up.

The demon turned around. "What?"

"Why are there roses in the underworld?" I asked.

Now this next part was what I didn't expect to hear.

"Those roses are the souls of the people who have a chance of coming here when they die. Thanks to you we demons now have less work in trying to sway those people to be overcome by darkness."

"You mean-"

"Yes! You basically just killed certain people in the human world but you also killed their souls by crushing the roses. Those people will be going in the "Soulless" graveyard,"

The demon turned back around and began walking down the stairs. "Come Pandora. We don't want to be late."

The End
