Preview TextEdit

A collision advances as Dee and Stephanie party and The Demon confronts Bishop Francis!


Bishop Francis is interrupted by The Demon, who has some plan in motion, and needs Francis for it.

We meet Stephanie Davies who’s trying to be a cheerleader to pick up guys, and Dee LaThang, her rich best friend. They seem to be normal American Teenagers. They make plans to go to the Local club, the Horned Devil, mostly so Steph can try to land the Basketball star, Kevin.

The DJ opens up the night by inviting Satan into the Club. Steph manages to get the Bartender, Stan, to get her some Vodka. Dee and Steph hang out, and discuss all the guys and stuff they’ve done. Steph apparently ran into Kevin, who called her a slut, and proved himself to be a “scum-sucking asshole”. Their conversation is interrupted by a biker who Steph tells to meet in the bathroom. Steph and the Biker enjoy some fun, unfortunately, the Biker can’t hold his own.

Dee and Steph walk home, and Dee gives Steph some caffeine pills since the four hours they have before school isn’t enough time to sleep in.

Steph wakes up with a hangover, so she takes some of those pills. Her parents are apparently going to mass early for the Epiphany. We find out from Steph that her brother Tom is gay.

Tom and Steph walk to the bus stop, sibling bantering, and questioning their parent sudden religious fever, when they realize they’ve missed the bus. The pills kick in, and Steph takes off running to catch it, and gets hit by the bus.
