“You are Green Jaws. Am I right?” A hand lands on the shoulder of a man who seems to be in a hurry.
“I am. What do you want from me?” Green Jaws replied sternly, without looking back.
“We need to talk, My Dear! I have to warn you…”
“What the hell are you?” Fear replaced his stubbornness as soon as he turned back and saw a ghostly figure.
The thing was wearing a blue robe with black markings on it. Its head was hooded with similar fabric, big enough to mask its face. Lower part of his jaws were covered with a black cloth, leaving everything to the imagination.
“Don’t worry! I will not harm you,” The ghostly figure assured him, it’s voice somewhat muffled because of the mask.
“But, what are you?” Green Jaws overcame his fear a bit.
“You may consider me as the God of death, but, you won’t understand what exactly I am,” Ghostly figure answered.
“I.. I don’t w.. I don’t wanna die!” Green Jaws replied, terrified.
“I already assured you that I am not going to harm you. But, if you continue on your path, you will end up harming yourself.” The God replied.
“I know drugs are not good things, but, I am addicted to them, I can’t forbid them,” Green Jaws tried to explain the situation.
“It’s a good thing that at least, you know that. But, it’s not the drugs that I am talking about, it’s the people you are about to meet,” The God said.
“And why do you think I will trust you over them?” Green Jaws questioned.
“I don’t even want you to trust me. You can simply walk to your death. You have been a good and religious man when you were in army and that’s why I was sent to warn you, but, only to warn you, not to persuade you. And here is the gift they sent you from heaven,” The God tossed a medical syringe towards him.
“I didn’t intend to disobey you, after all you are a god,” Green Jaws apologized.
“ It is not a order, just a warning.” The god replied and turned away.
Green Jaws thanked him for the gift which looked like his favorite sedative and he immediately injected it into his veins.
The god turned to him and took off his mask that gave him his supernatural appearance.
“Hope you still remember me,” He said.
“You..” Green Jaws collapsed before he could complete his sentence.
“Don’t worry! It is not a poison, just the concentrated dose of your favorite sedative,” The God smiled and carried off senseless Green Jaws to his airship.
