Writing Prompt: Hell and Spider

Jade was unsurprised to wake up and find that she had managed to be sent to Hell. It’s not like she lived the best life in the world. She was hired to do many unspeakable things in her life. She had no regret on anything she did. She sat up and stretched. If she was going to be here, she may as well make the most of it. The first thing on her agenda was getting a feel for the place.

As she was walking around, she noticed that Hell wasn’t really much different than Earth itself. It was just a bit hotter than she was used to. Not that that really bothered her much anyway. She was used to living in hot climates. She also noticed that there were a lot more spiders in Hell than there were on Earth. At least she could say she knew where they came from with conviction now. 

After an hour of walking around, she grew bored. She made her way back to her quarters and was surprised to find a note on her bed. She picked it up and read it. Lord Lucifer requests your presence. Please wear the dress I have left with the note. She looked down to notice that there was a box that had been left with the note. Opening the box she found a deep blood red dress sitting neatly in the box. Smiling, she put the dress on and made her way to Lord Lucifer himself.

It didn’t take her long to get to him at all. He was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Just how he liked it to be. He wanted to be close to all of the chaos he could possibly manage to cause on any unsuspecting person. It was his favorite pastime. When he saw her approaching, he stood up. 

“We meet again.”

“Indeed.”

“I thought I made it clear that you weren’t welcome here.”

“You break my heart, Luce.”

“The last time you were here you caused so much chaos that it took me a decade to get everything back in order. Francine is still recovering from your torment.”

“Oh she’s a spider. She’ll get over it. Besides, I thought you enjoyed chaos and destruction.”

“Even I have my limits, Jade. You are just too much. Until you can learn to tame your ways, I do not want you here.”

“It’s not like I asked to be killed.”

“I’m sure you didn’t. I’m sure that our beloved creator was bored and wanted to give me a reason to stress again. I send you back to Earth. You live there for a while and then he gets bored and sends you back to me. What did I do to deserve this?”

“Do you really want the answer to that?”

“Jade! I don’t need your attitude. Can’t you see the situation I’m in?”

“You’re threatening to send me back to Earth! That’s cruel! Even for you!”

“Fine. I’ll give you a choice then. You can choose to go back to Earth and continue your terror there or you can choose to live here as my wife.”

“Your…. What??”

“You heard me. Don’t play stupid.”

“What I heard was insane. How do you expect me to be your wife to solve anything?”

“It doesn’t, but at least when you cause chaos I can explain that you’re my wife and it’s just in your nature…”

“Low blow.”

“Did you expect anything less from me?”

“Neither of these choices are appealing. You know that, right?”

“Did you expect me to make a pleasant option for you? Do you know who I am?”

“I know exactly who you are. Perhaps better than you think I do.”

“Enough! What’s the decision?”
