Jacob was in the barracks. he was talking to his best buddies, when the commander called. "Emergency mission boys! get up, get your shit and lets move out! we will do the debriefing of the plane!" Jacob groaned. this was the 10th one this month. but this was, in fact, what he signed up for. he went through his normal routine, getting on his infantry pack, put the padding on, got his MK-14, and his pistol of choice, raging bull. he tied his boots, and ran to the entrance station. he saw 4 other guys there, he knew them all. This was a big plane though, it looked like it could take them half-way around the world. "ALL RIGHT!" the commander yelled, "we are going to Afghan to help some poor stupid marines who got stuck! they cant get out!" Jacob couldnt believe his ears, marines failing a mission? he alomst laughed out loud, but the commander beat him to it. "i know! it sounds rediculous! but we are not gere so diddle daddle and laugh our asses off! we need those guys, they have valuable information! now get in the damn plane, MOVE MOVE MOVE!"

Five hours into the mission, they were still on the plane. they had nothing to occupy themselves, so they talked about their families. a guy named charlie was talking about one time he had his son at the pool, and mistooken him for a girl. his wife almost left him that day, but he saved himself by buying her a huge diamond ring. "yeah right! that only works im movies, silly bastard." i said. everyone laughed then ,and he hit me in the shoulder. i just laughed harder. we were about to get into the dropoff zone. the pilot said, "dropoff in 5 minutes! prepare your parac-" is all he got to before we heard screaming, and an explosion.

Jacob panicked. he opened the emergency hatch, and told everyobody to jump. everybody came to the door, and the door quickly opened. jacob jumped out before he knew what was happening, and thanked god he had hid goggles on. as he fell out, he looked up, and saw everybody else jumping out. the plane that they were in was now split in half, and then then a second explosion erupted. shrapnel flew everywhere, and he saw charlie pierced by one of the large pieces, and Jacob knew he was finished. he twisted back around in the air, and looked down. it was nearly 4 in the morning, but jacob could see lights down below him. he waited 10 seconds before he opened his parachute, and watched as everyone else did also. Jacob marveled as he still had his MK-14 strapped to his back. he hoped to god and all the angels that he would be safe.
he swore to himself, and thought to himself, "this must be the workings of Death himself"

~ In the Judgement Room... ~

Death continued to sit where he was, even as the minutes began to pass. If there was a man behind the workings of time, he was being cruel to Death, for time seemed more slower then it already was to him. His mind didn't wander though, his mind did not break to the temptation of what would happen. Instead, he remained as mystery as always, emotionless and yet so sinister at the same time. That was what it meant to be Death. He knew it well, for over the years he had learned much about himself. If he was even a he, that is. He heard the footsteps of what sounded like a man enter, but Death could tell what he already was even before his wings came out of his back. An angel. Not just any angel either, a fallen one. Death knew many who fell from heaven because of the one named Satan, at least, that was his name at the time. Humans had two different ideas of the Devil it seemed, but Death liked to tease the Devil by calling him Satan a lot, much to the Devil's fury. He tried to remember what name this one had, but he knew he had to see him in order to know him. So he turned his head over his shoulder to look over at the fallen angel, and all at once the name came to him.
Sauriel.

Death wondered if this was in reality Sariel, who's name was sometimes interpreted as 'Command of God.' Some labeled him an Archangel, others considered him an angel of death. Whichever the case, Death could not tell if this man was indeed the once mighty angel. The black wings though were clear that he was someone important. Death turned his head away once he had done this, the identity known to Death and his curiosity dying with it. Then something came before Death, almost like a vision. An image of a helicopter exploding, a man dying. His soul now belonged to Death, there were no questions to be asked now. Death would decide what to do with him later though, once he got a good look at the man's background and all that. It wouldn't take long either, Human Souls were pretty easy to judge where they would go when they died. Angels and demons were a bit more difficult, considering a demon can some times just be resurrected and an angel can just be 'reborn.' Regardless, Death took note of an man falling with the others who had survived. What was his name, Death wondered for a few, before the name came before him.
Ah... A Joseph. Common name, common person.

Death would have to look more into his background and family, if he had some important to this trial that was. Death looked up briefly to watch the Judge, who sat there impatient as ever. He cared not for the weak demons that attended, nor for the angels that had started to arrive. His attention was all mainly on how to destroy Death, and Death knew he would do whatever it took to get Death the Guilty penalty. Death lowered his head at this and closed his eyes, concentrating, as a voice from the past echoed within his mind...
Then, more then one came, and they all started to become conjoined.

"Death, how could you do this to me?!? I trusted you with my life, and this is how you repay me?!"
"WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO US, DEATH?!?"
"I accept the job, Death. I will not fail in murdering him."
"I AM CURSED! BLOODY CURSED BECAUSE OF DEATH!"
"My home... LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO MY HOME!"
...
"So Death, how does it feel? How does it feel, knowing you are the one who is bringing every single miserable thing Humanity faces?"

after the 5 men deployed their parachutes, 2 of them had died from shots on the ground, and Joseph had almost got his head chopped off from a rotor blade. when they landed on the ground, they were at a fortune, they had landed next to some abandoned tanks and modified trucks. the trucks still worked, and they tore the gun off of the tank. they took turns taking watch that night, and joseph had a dream.

"honey! it's time for dinner!" Lorelei called to Joseph. Lorelei was the only woman Joseph had ever loved, and he wanted her badly. he first met her in middle school, when she came in as a foreign exchange student. except, her parents were illegal immigrants, so they went to jail, and then Lorelei had no place to live. Joseph felt sorry for her loss, so he invited for her to stay at his house, and was so happy when his parents said yes. Joseph knew that Lorelei liked joseph, for she gave strong signs. they started dating, and it was weird having his girlfriend at his house while he was dating her.

it came to be that when joseph was 21, his father and mother died in a forest fire when the 2 went out camping. Joseph wasn't a big crier, but he certainly cried that night. Joseph found his parents will that night, and found it recently written in. his parents left the house to him, and all their money, which they left in a bank box for Joseph to collect. but what he loved the most was a Necklace, with a huge diamond on it, and joseph's parent's will had asked him to marry Lorelei. Joseph had been dating her for 7 years now, and Joseph had thought of that. so he took her out to dinner that night, and asked her to marry him. Lorelei automatically said yes, and with the money in his parents bank, Joseph set up a wedding that he would never forget. the honeymoon was better. 2 days after their honey moon, they sold their parents house, and bought a more modern one. 3 years later, Lorelei gave birth to 3 kids, a girl and twin boys. the boys were named Luke, and Sparta. the girl was named Lucy.

When joseph was 29, he started having images of his mother in his sleep. that she was fighting off demons, and beasts from Hell itself. but what intrigued him the most was that one night, he had an image of Death himself. but it wasn't 5 seconds after that Joseph's mom was there to fend off the dark image. that went of for 4 years, until he applied to be a U.S Army Ranger. That had been his dream since he was a little boy, and he fulfilled it. Lorelei was confident in him that he wouldn't die, and they actually joked about it. and thats where he was now.


Joseph woke up from his dream. it was almost day time, and it was his time to be on watch. 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes passed, until he saw 5 men walking down the road towards the squadron of trucks and tank Josephs men were at. they seemed to be about 500 yards away. Joseph looked at his necklace. the one his mother had given him. Joseph had his MK-14 slung on his back, and he unslung it, thanking god that he still had his silencer. he aimed down the sights of it, and shot 3 shots. all 3 shots hit their mark, and he shot off 2 more, the last 2 died. Joseph woke up 2 of his men, and told them. "we need to hide the bodies, lest they get spotted." so they took the mens weapons, and hid the men in a nearby building. Joseph decided to take the clothes, but it wouldn't help him because he was white. but there were 3 black people in his squadron, and he took 2 of the 5 suits. he gave them to the 2 men he trusted the most, and asked them to scout out the area around them. they came back 3 hours earlier, saying they found a control center just a mile away from here, but it was maximum security. they decided to wait out till tomorrow. Joseph thought to himself, "what other hell can 'Death' throw at me?"

~ Location: Judgement Room. ~

People were gathering, now things would get interesting. Already he could feel that the human servant Salies Gnem was awake and wondering the Earth, seemingly himself as usual. Death thought about sending him a message, but he felt the time was not yet right. A few more minutes to allow the fool to spark fear before summoning the fool. The family was an odd bunch, each new member asking him for something in return for another piece of the family belonging to him. Death did not mind though, he did not care to be honest. It granted him personal servants over the years and it made sure to bring fear down in to the people's hearts. But before he could focus any more on those thoughts, something entered. Mer Gava Shael, no doubt, to represent the Dragon's in this Trial. The Dragon Champion spoke out as he entered, speaking of the Dragon Genocide as always. Death decided it was time to make things... Interesting.

With this, time seemed to freeze around for Death and his vision traveled through hell itself. Searching through the different levels and such, he soon found who he was looking for. "DAMNATION, DEATH!" The voice spoke out with pure rage, wrathful as always. "Where are you!?! Come out and stop using mind tricks on me! I will kill you for this, yes, KILL!"

"If you want to kill me, you are most welcome to try and do so. But right now, I need help from you."

"Help? From ME? Oh, you must be crazy right now if you are asking help from a living representation of Wrath. Hell, that's the name you gave me. Wrath the Stupid, wasn't it?! But go on, I am interested..."

"I need you to go out in to the Mortal Realm and stir up some things for a human named Joseph. He is an army man, something along those lines. Cause some chaos, why don't you? Lure him in to coming to hell."

"And... You are sure he can not kill me?"

"Why would I be asking you for this if he could kill you?"

"I HATE dying! Every time some idiot kills me, I get sent back here in Hell and have to go through that painful process you have damned me too since you created me! But fine... I will go. If only because I get to UNLEASH my wrath! For two hundred years I've been waiting to come out, and now you give me this chance! Do not regret this decision, Death."

"I regret nothing."

"That's what they all say!"

Time resumed around him at this, and no one was for the wiser. The Trial was good, in a sense, that every one was currently put off by Mer Gava Shael's words. It made them wonder what he would say in response, it made him want to chuckle. "Judge, if I make an offer to you?"

"What?" The Judge spoke with obvious anger, glaring down at Death as he waited impatiently.

"Next time you invite a representative for the dragons, keep it on a leash. It would benefit you greatly, no doubt if only because you would be torn to shreds, as weak as you are."

"BE SILENT DEATH!" The Judge spoke in anger, glancing over to the dragon as he sneered at this. "... Please keep all matters of the Trial to yourselves until it begins every one, if only to shut up the Horseman..."

All was going well, it seemed. Death had fun teasing people, but it was time to get serious. The angel went to talk to the dragon, that was two people. He had sent that wrathful demon after the human Joseph, which would be interesting to watch. So now, all that was left was... The annoying human. Concentrating at this, he quickly opened a rip in the air in front of Salies and would have him sucked in against his will, the rip vanishing along with Salies, and no one around suspected a thing. They were happy, if only because they wanted to assume the man they had seen was a figment of imagination. Having the fool dropped off outside of the Trial, Death spoke in to his mind. "Salies Gnem, I suppose you ignored the letter I sent you... So it seems I have to drag you personally in to this. Beyond the doors in front of you is where my trial is going to commence in twenty minutes. Prepare yourself first, if need be. Then come in. Also, word to the wise... Mer Gava Shael is here, so I'd keep my distance from him if I were you."

Twenty minutes left. That was all that was left until his trial commenced, he had plenty of time to make a little chaos while he waited. Perhaps it was good that the fallen angel stood near the Dragon Champion, if only because Salies Gnem was about to come in. Oh the things Death did in his spare time. If only some of these fools knew half the tales he had started.

Joseph was just fitting up the 2 men for going into the command center, when he had an idea. "i think i can smudge mud on me, that would make me look black, wouldn't it?" and the 2 black men in Josephs squadron, Khalil and Gunther, laughed, and said "your a crazy crack ass joseph! you'll be lookin like Lenzy lohan!" and the whole squadron started to crack up, but joseph just walked out, and found a mud puddle not far from the trucks. he stripped down to his naked body, and jumped into the mud, and rolled around. after 2 minutes, he got up, put his clothes back on after air drying the mud onto his body, and walked back to the trucks. the men were talking when he approached. Khalil was the fist to talk, but he picked up his gun first. "Who are you, where did you come from?!" and Joseph laughed. "its just me, you fat hunk of shit! i told you it would work." And everybody laughed. "Man! you look like a brotha' who came from my momma!" Gunther joked, and everyone started laughing harder. Jospeh laughed too, while Khalil put his gun down, and Joseph slapped him on the shoulder. "dont worry, if you can believe it wasn't me, nobody will." and with that, joseph put on an iraqi uniform. they then walked toward the command center, and joseph thanked god he could speak multiple languages, iraqi being one of them. they got got to the gates, and two officers came down to check them out. at first the man was skeptical, asking where they had been, but then the men calmed down, and they were allowed in.

the three of them quickly made their way to the control room, and found inter-coms. Joseph took control of one of them, while Khalil and Gunther guarded the doorway. Joseph made quick good use of the radio, and tried using it. he set it to a station he knew the U.S.A used, and spoke into it. "Hello? America? this is Joseph, a U.S Army ranger, code red, our fleet was shot down in Iraq, we need back up." he waited for a reply, and a staticy voice came into line. "hel....hello......U.S.A.. this is Commander Desmond. we know of your situation, and we have been trying to find you on our UAV. what are your coordinates?" And joseph put in the coordinates. they might finally be able to get out of this hell hole.

~ On Earth, wherever Joseph was... ~

The embodiment of Wrath watched the humans with an odd sense of humor. They were so dirty, so disgusting, so revolting... It made him want to laugh! He thought to himself what a show this was! Then he watched them trying to contact others, and he knew it was time to strike. Making his way to the building, he snapped his fingers and sparked a small flame. He quietly blew out a trail at this as he watched it lead to a good combustible place. Then he flickered the flame into the trail and watched the spark quickly travel along. Then...

KA-BOOM!

An explosion. A fire that started to spread wildly on the building, trapping or killing several people, it didn't matter to him. He slowly flew back and went into the air, hovering in place as he watched his disaster begin to unfold. "Now, human..." It spoke to itself, unable to be seen by mortal eyes or heard at his distance. "Prove to me you are as high of expectation as Death thinks you are."

~ Back in Hell ~

"It has been long enough for the trial to begin. Everyone is here and ready..." The judge spoke out at this. Death looked over to War and nodded at this.

"Ah, brother... It is good to see you again. Please, have a seat... It's going to be a long day." The Judge then pulled out a paper as he looked it over. "Before we move on to the first case, I request the following people, in order, to speak of where they stand on Death's position... Hiruki, Shael, Gnem and War the Horseman. We would also like the four to be ready... You will be the first ones to speak when we begin the first event." The Judge then crossed his arms over his chest.

"Ha. Those four... Oh you are going to get one conflicted trial." A fallen angel, a dragon champion, his servant and his fellow horseman speaking out on whether they thought Death should live or die. If this didn't mark the beginning of something big and awesome, who knows.
