She was so very, very tired.

Death was supposed to be a release, but as far as the Handmaid's dreambubble went, it really wasn't all that different from her life.
In fact, she didn't even know she was dead.

She's attacked countless times, always violent and unexpected. She's the boogeyman, the monster under the bed, the thing that goes bump in the night. She's the subject of whispered rumors and gleefully giggled scary stories. Everyone knows her, and nobody admits to being scared.
She's the Demoness, and she's coming.

Before we come to know her, a young girl sits poised to make a choice. She can listen to her friend, and let her species and her planet fade away and become forgotten. She can make a deal with the devil, and preserve - as far she knows - the legacy of what she loves.
