Devil's Own

He aimed.. and missed.. damn!!, he thought... his target seemed to have the luck of the devil...perhaps he was indeed a devil incarnate... judging by his actions, that seemed to be very much in the realms of possibility...
He would have gone about the usual way - a small fire, a building collapse, a small road accident etc to finish his target, but this time the target was too wily, it was though he knew there was someone after his life.. which wasnt difficult to explain... for the target himself was aware that his actions so far would have created a lot of enemies, though few people realised he was behind many terrorist activities taking place in different parts of the world.. he was indeed the devil's own, created to spread terror and plunge humanity into misery and frustration... and since he realised he was a wanted man,he made sure he didnt travel alone.. he was always part of the crowd, and anyone trying to kill him would also kill a lot of innocent folk.. there was only one being he feared, and though he didnt realise it, he was being watched by him, that very moment...
Watching the target, he realised that he would have to bide his time.. for he really didnt want to use any method that would harm innocent people.. reworking destinies was a pain, one that he liked to avoid, unless absolutely necessary...He considered using some cop somewhere to finish his target, but realised that no human could match his target... thanks to the devil, some evil men he had to finish off himself... He couldnt afford the luxuries that the devil had, because from experience, when he made some humans extra powerful, he found that it was much easier for the devil to take them to his side..but damn, he was God, he wasnt supposed to miss...
until next time, do you think He needs help??

If god asks for help then doesn't that make the helper an evil person for taking a life? And then doesnn't god have to finish him off too....btw I'm back :) at a new place
