Lead Recruiter of Evil,
The wooden cross
Above the pulpit.
Jumbled left and right.
He’d give him Hell,
If not paralyzed
By the Light.
This is my response to Trifecta’s weekend prompt:
I figured what could be more out of the comfort zone for a demon than the inside of a church? Behind the cross no less 🙂 That demon intern had better watch out though, because if his boss gets out, I see pain and misery in his future! (On a technical note: the photo above is of a Catholic church. I’m not Catholic, so I’m not certain if they have images of the cross inside. The Baptist/non-denominational ones I’ve been to have…but I didn’t have a photo of one easily accessible. Meaning: I’m too lazy to retrieve my backup drive and search it!)

Thanks for stopping by. Have a beautiful weekend!
Ooh, I love this!
Thanks, Susan! I’m glad you liked this one 🙂
Lousy mapmaker… really good.
Thanks, Bjorn…I had some fun with this one!
As a Catholic, I can vouch that our churches DO have crosses inside (though most of the crosses tend to be crucifixes). By the way, this looks like St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square, New Orleans, USA. Am I right??
Thanks for the confirmation, Debbie! The crosses I’ve seen have been between six and eight feet tall and some of them have lighting that make them look other-worldly.
You pegged the location correctly. The photo was from my NOLA trip in 2012. I know I have some photos of other small churches in Arizona- Sedona in particular but I don’t have time to find them today.
This is an awesome response to that trifecta challenge…your creativity amazes me!
Thanks, SuziCate! I think I’ve done spooky to the hilt this month, so I figured a different take was in order 🙂
I know this place! NOLA!
You got it, Quickstepp! I like the irony that in NOLA, the demon ends up in a church…poor guy was probably headed to Bourbon Street 😛 I so wouldn’t want to be that mapmaker!
Awesome 😀 🙂
Thanks for reading, Queenzdesire12!
I have a lot of respect for religious institutions. However, I get cautious anytime gets to tooting too loud they are good Christians. Once burned, twice shy. Good observation.
The insulated, self-inclusive mindset of some religions/churches doesn’t sit well with me (I’ve visited some). Reading of Jesus’ short time on earth tells me that we should embrace the ‘cast-offs’ as He did. Being a Christian isn’t a label to be worn, it’s the way of one’s heart.
Okay, I’m off my soapbox now 🙂 Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts, Ann!
A demon that lives in a church? Intriguing. And very creepy.
Well, he’s hoping not to live there forever…if he get’s his strength, he’ll be off to find some darkness 🙂 Thanks for reading, Tina!
This is AWESOME, every word!
Thanks, Christine! Just having some fun on a Friday 🙂
Thanks for reading, Catherine…glad you liked it 🙂
Lousy mapmaker! That’s great!
Even intern demons make mistakes 🙂 Thanks for reading, Valerie!
A demon there would not be happy. Good one!
If he weren’t so drained, he’d be wreaking some havoc for sure. Thanks for stopping by, Joe!
paralyzed by the light? I bet he was wrapped up like a douche.
Nah, only if he was blinded! He could’ve been revved up like a deuce, though 🙂
Thanks for reading, Chamblee!
I would not want to be that intern when he gets out of there! Or maybe he did it deliberately to “move up.” Oooh, scandal and intrigue in Hell (or is it Washington?). Great work!
Haha! Don’t get me started on Washington 🙂 Deliberate or accident, I’m pretty sure the intern will regret it! Thanks for reading and the fun comment, J.Milburn.
That’s make for interesting treat and me too, religion doesn’t sit well with me:)
I appreciate you stopping by to read and share your thoughts, Vishal!
As a lefty frustrated Christian, I “got” this one all the way. I love what you did here.
Thanks for reading, Lance!
Well done, Janna!
Out-eviled by a map maker, guess there’s a new Nightmare Lord in town… 🙂
It could’ve been an honest mistake (is there such a thing in hell?) Thanks for reading, Shannoncity!
That’s interesting what you say – the church is the last place you’ll find an evil intern.
They forgot to mention that to all those wolves in sheep’s clothes.
Sorry, Janna, but I simply felt compelled to say that – having witnessed first hand how some priests carry on.
I’m not familiar with priests, but I’ve seen some preachers whose hearts don’t seem to be pure. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, Eric!
Definitely an uncomfortable place for the Nightmare Lord. Very very clever!
Thanks, EagleAye! I appreciate you stopping by.
The most terrifying beast of all! Good job!
Thanks for reading, Lennygore!

Yay! So glad you’re giving it a try 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Lauren!
Now that is a truly scary thought Janna!
Thanks for reading, Linda!
You are brilliant with your words. I love where you took this.
I appreciate your kind words, Deana….thanks for taking time to read it!
Well done! Very clever, this one.
Glad you liked it, Allen. I had some fun with it this weekend!
Ha! That intern’s gonna be in trouble soon! Love it!
Thanks, Rachael. Yes, I think there will be trouble for sure!
Should’ve used GPS…:P
Haha…true. I guess demons go old school, Michael!
ah, i love it, the wording and take on the prompt.
Thanks for stopping by to read it, Renada!
Nice one! I especially like the last line.
Haha, you picked a very uncomfortable place!
I thought so…glad you stopped by to read it, Patti!
As always,you have nailed this beast Janna-great job:-)
Thanks so much for reading, Atreyee!
:-)I hate missing reading what you write 🙂
Aw, thanks, Atreyee! I appreciate you reading when you can.
:-)Same here Janna ❤
Fantastic ending. Loved this.
Thanks – glad you liked it!
That’s really cool, is he trapped in the church?
For now….he’s too weak to get out of there (the prayers, angels and worship just zap his energy.) Thanks for reading, Rob!
