The Behn entered the temple. With his head down, he avoided eye contact and weaved his way through the crowd to the back of the room. He didn’t want to be spotted, though with the number of Followers around him that wouldn’t be an issue.
The call to prayer sounded and the Behn joined the other worshippers. At the conclusion he was on his knees. “Peace be upon you,” he recited.
Silence ensued for a brief moment then a figure rose from the front of the room. He pivoted to address the gathering. “People of Turkey, I’m humbled before you. Allah has sent a message for his Followers.” He paused. “The devil lives among you. It’s time we band together to destroy him.” At this, images appeared on the wall behind the figure.
The first one was of a man with long black hair that fell to the middle of his back, scars near his left temple. His eyes were glowing blue, long fangs easily seen through his open mouth, as he wielded a large curved sword. Gasps and shocked cries spread through the room.
Next a man with dark skin, deep grooves on each cheek. In slowmo, the man morphed into a ten-foot monster with long claws and a skull for a face.
The third, a man with brown wavy hair, long enough to touch the collar of his shirt. The edges of his form began to blur. Faster, then faster until a wolf stood in his place.
A fourth image. A fifth. Again and again. Each of a different man, changing into other supernatural beings.
“These are the devil’s workers,” the speaker said. “They are the ones who do his bidding. They are the reason why you have hate and crime. I’ve come to band us together. Once we eradicate them all, Allah, the Creator, has promised to restore the world to what it was before, The Garden of Eden. A home the Creator will gladly visit. A place that will be acceptable enough for him to place His feet.”
Cries shouted. Hands raised in the air.
“But first we must get ready. We must take out those who wish to see the devil in His place.” The images continued flashing behind the speaker. He turned, watched in silence with the rest of the worshippers. When the feed faded, he spoke once more. “The time has come to change this world into a home the Creator will visit. We start by killing the demons who walk the earth and we’ll end it when the devil has been destroyed once and for all. Can I count on your help?” Shouts rang up from around the room.
The Behn quietly slipped out of the temple. Half a mile away, he pulled out his phone.
It rang, and then, “Yeah?”
“Cade, we have a problem. A big problem.”
