You dangle by a tiny thread forever waiting for the inevitable slice that will send you plummeting into oblivion. You are forever pushed to the edge, pushed hard to the brink, forever dancing on the edge of a knife and when you finely surrender, finally give in to despair and cease to resist then, then you become a demon like him and Mada rejoices for those kinds of victories taste sweetest to him: fallen angels. Fallen angels who lose their ways, lose their identity and lose their light surrendering their very souls to the demon monster god, and once you surrender all then you truly become one among the lost...
