The Fight That Changed The World

Satan licked his chops in perverse anticipation His excitement reached an unprecedented level culminating in a deranged euphoria that invigorated the evil energies within He smiled in an unnervingly sinister manner as he stepped forward into the darkness He had been waiting for this opportunity since, essentially, the beginning of time As Satan moved forward, he saw a figure huddling and shivering in the furthest corner of the room, apparently frightened It was God. As he advanced upon the figure, Satan felt immensely empowered As he gravitated toward his nemesis, The Devil could sense the fear that now saturated the atmosphere As each second passed, the figure on the ground appeared to grow weaker---- as if every step that Satan took was another wound inflicted upon God's frail body After yet another step forward, Satan withdrew his whip and began to viciously attack God kicking him in the face and throat and every time the Lord screamed in agony from the lashings After what seemed like an eternity, Satan put down his whip and began to admire what he considered his greatest achievement But before he could fully appreciate what he had done, he suddenly experienced a terrifyingly foreign emotion, setting off a physiological reaction that consumed his entire being... for the first time in existence, Satan was remorseful He quickly bent down to tend to God's wounds which had become quite extensive in nature The Lord's face, for example, was bloodied beyond recognition But before Satan could reach the Lord, God astonishingly sprung to his feet and stabbed the Devil through the heart As the dagger pierced Satan's heart, God looked into the Devil's eyes and saw that Satan had felt remorse for his viciousness before being abruptly murdered If God had faith in his own ability to convert sinners into agents of virtue (even Satan, the embodiment of pure evil) then he would not have stabbed the Devil and consequently, Satan's transformation of conscience would have been complete due to his sudden remorse and implicit compassion Such an event would've, inevitably, eliminated the concept of evil from the collective consciousness of humanity Realizing his grave and untimely error, God turned the knife on himself with one swift stroke across the neck As he fell to the ground, the world collapsed into a state of mass ambiguity where good and evil were intertwined, convoluted and unclear It has remained the same ever since..
