'To become the leader, I must give up my soul?' Elijah contemplated. Power does not come with weakness. Elijah was determined to find another way. He paced the floor in front of the dragon. Eyes were all upon him awaiting his decision. His feet stopped and he looked up at the throne, "Almighty Lucifer, you are offering me a position of highest ranks if I give you my soul?"
Lucifer nodded. Elijah could hear the sprites and minions growing anxious around him like animals waiting to feed. In his time here, he knew exactly what they were salivating for. His options did not provide much diversity. Elijah could give up his soul for power or give up his power to keep his soul; eternal sovereignty or eternal suffering. Elijah lived his earthly life to the fullest which brought him to this unfortunate place. Now, he has to choose: remain in torment or return in power?
