"Mother of God! Shoot the motherfucker!" Bullets flew through the air at those...things. Two were tall, seven feet, covered in yellow scales, had red eyes and two large horns of it's head. One looked as if a tiger had just learned how to walk on it's hind legs, and the last looked like a rhino with four arms and the ability to walk on it's hind legs. Joesph Jackson had been trained as a Marine, and he should be prepared and cool in any situation, but this was more than just 'any situation.' These strange monsters had just walked out of a portal that appeared out of nowhere! Joe and his buddies had been on a smoking break, and they nearly were killed. These things nearly tore his face off. They were faster than they looked.
The tiger went down, a bullet hitting it in the face. Green blood flew everywhere. For the first time, Joe noticed a woman there as well. "Lady, get out of there!" he yelled in English, his Pashto failing him. They were in Afghanistan, it was a bit stupid to be speaking English, but you tended to not care in high stress situations. The woman hissed-actually hissed- and a fireball blasted out of her mouth. "Ah, shit!" Joe heard one of his comrades yell; the fireball had scorched his uniform, and probably burned him a little.
Joe took careful aim, calming himself down. Whap. Rhino guy was down. Whap. Woman went down. Whap. The horned creature went down.
More Marines arrived at the scene, having ran. "What the hell happened here?" one asked bluntly, looking at the dead things. Afghani voices could be heard now, having been awoken by the sounds. Chatter in Pashto and Urdu was heard. The Marine in charge nodded to Joe. "Come on in." he said. He then nodded to Joe's friend. "You too. That burn needs to be treated." They entered the base again, stunned. "What the hell was that? Sir," he added quickly.
The Marine stared at Joe. "You won't speak a word of this. This never happened. Those were just enraged Afghans who tried to attack the base. You were surprised and you attacked. There will be no court-martial because you were defending yourself." he nodded to Joe's friend. "And you, go to the nurse. Be more careful next time, spilling your hot coffee can seriously hurt." The Marine left, leaving Joe and his friend uncomprehending of what just happened.
Raphael facepalmed. "You mean that a group of demons entered Heavengate, and then they opened a portal? To where?"
"Well, probably to Heaven, sir." reported an angel. "But I managed to redirect them to Earth. Heaven is too risky, but nobody cares if a few apes die."
"Very good." Raphael said. "We could have had a major disaster on our hands. I'm proud you managed it." he looked troubled.
"Is there a problem, sir?"
Raphael shook his head. "No, no problem. Just forget about this. And for the Father's sake, don't mention this to Uriel."
Sachin got out of his taxi, which had driven him from the airport to here. He glanced at the school, and gaped in surprise. It was huge! It was four stories tall, and it seemed to sprawl. He grabbed his bags, started his IPod and plugged it in his ears, and managed to find his dorm-Dorm 42-without getting lost. He checked a paper of piece in his hand. His roommate was a boy named Ranatunga Buddha. Sachin wasn't too surprised at the last name. He had grown up in a country where nearly everyone was named after some religious name.
He used his key and entered the room, nodding to the other boy. An Indian too, by the looks of him. "Hello." he said in English, the song on his IPod going from "Another One Bites the Dust" to "Stronger".
He started unpacking his bags. "My name's Sachin, you're Ranatunga, right?" the 15 year old asked.
Crowley walked into the teacher's lounge sipping his Coke can. "Ah, the new school year begins!" he said cheerfully. "You mates ready for the year? And we've got a new addition, I see." he said, grinning charmingly at the new teacher, Lilith. He couldn't remember what subject she taught, but he figured it would come to him. "Name's Mr. Crowley. Yes, I like the song too." he introduced himself, shaking her hand. He nodded to the other teachers as well.
Calliel Michaelson wandered the hallways. The human he was possessing was quiet now. Calliel was adept at tuning them out. He was watching for signs of supernatural activity, but he didn't see any. Then again, he had only been wandering the halls for two minutes now. He had a dorm, and had dropped off his stuff there. Now he was just walking around, looking for..something. Anything that was strange. Then again, all this was strange. Humans didn't make sense to him. As he was aimlessly walking, he crashed into someone and fell to the floor. "My sincerest apologies." he said, getting back up and helping the other person up as well. "I am Calliel. And you are?"
