Prompt for September 30, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

“Angels, devils, what’s the difference? I’ll tell you what the difference is: lust for power. We automatically assume that the lust for power is what devils aspire to. Dominance. Kingdoms. But what if we’re wrong? What if devils are merely trying to level the playing field? What if it is the angels that are lusting for power? The power of life and death. The power of God. How do you stop an angel that can lure you in with the promise of a heavenly afterlife and then gut you like a fish?” The figure stepped out of the darkness with a gun in his left hand and a sword in his right. The gun looked well worn and used while the sword still dripped blood from its latest victim. “How do you stop them? That’s what I’m for.”
