Demons at deadnight
For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle.
Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it’s just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti.
The Hex Boys—mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction—have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move.
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.

An Interview with Hex Boy Tristan:
Faye: Thanks so much for joining me today Tristan!
Tristan: Thanks for having me.
Faye: Since you aren't a central character, why don't you tell my readers a little about yourself first?
Tristan: Uh. Okay. I, um, I’m the tech expert. For our demon hunting team. I also make sure we stay on track. Don’t do anything stupid. Or too dangerous. They say I’m the worry-wart but somebody has to keep these guys in line. They can all be such hot heads. Acting before they think things through. Although Jayden usually thinks too much. The six of us are practically always together. Which is annoying sometimes. Most of the time. But it’s safer to have a buddy system than privacy. Unless your buddy is Blake. You’re better off alone if there’s a girl in his sights.
*Door bangs open. Gasps all around.*
Blake: Behold! The girl of my dreams!
Tristan: Are you kidding?! I snuck out my window to avoid you following me!
Blake: *Kneels before Faye and takes her hand.* I’ve been waiting for you my whole life.
Tristan: *Shoves Blake away from Faye.* I even switched off the tracker in my car! Made sure I didn’t have a tail!
Jayden: *Enters with look of relief* Ah, Tristan. Excellent! You’re unharmed. Blake saw you abscond out your window and feared you were in some sort of danger. His qualms became mine when I ascertained your car tracker was inoperative. Fortunately, I was able to activate it remotely.
Tristan: *Sighs.* Thanks Jayden. *Turns to Blake.* I even told you my interviewer was an old man.
Blake: *Throws arm around Faye.* How dare you insult her so! It’s alright babe, I think you’re gorgeous!
Jayden: You say that about every female we encounter.
Blake: You’re a terrible wing man.
Jayden: I don’t have a pilot’s license.
Faye: So you’re a Hex Boy, right?
Tristan: One of the group, but yeah.
Faye: What does that mean exactly?
Blake: It means we have hex appeal.
Tristan: *Laughs.* It’s something the kids at school started calling us. After we became demon hunters we kept to ourselves…distanced ourselves from the normal kids—
Jayden: I warned you all that separating ourselves would bring unwanted attention.
Tristan: Yes, but we agreed that the community would be safer. We became the odd balls. And trouble seemed to follow us so we were “hexed,” I think was the general consensus.
Jayden: Additionally, hex is derives from Greek meaning six and there are six of us.
Blake: The six dangerously, sexy guys of Gossamer Falls. I’m the bad boy of the group. If you’re into that. Otherwise I’m not—
Tristan: Important. Next question?
Faye: How do you guys pull off going to High School and being Demon Hunters? It seems kind of complicated if you ask me lol.
Tristan: It’s just like having a part-time job while going to school. And depending on how strong the demon is, sometime it only takes two or three of us to take one down. So the rest of us can stay in class or at home and finish homework. The team effort makes it work.
Jayden: Tristan’s abilities make the situation infinitely more facile.
Blake: No, Tristan makes it way easier.
Jayden: That what I just— *Throws up his hands.*
Blake: We can skip out of class anytime or he convinces the teachers to give us A’s.
Tristan: *Laughs nervously.* I don’t do that.
Jayden: You might consider at least giving him a B. Even with my tutoring he’s failing English.
Blake: Because I have no idea what you’re saying.
Tristan: No, he should just read the book.
Jayden: He does. But inexplicably comes to utterly obtuse conclusions. Much like Aurora.
Blake: How can anyone believe that the Bennett chick thinks Heathcliff—
Tristan: Completely different books! *Turns to Jayden.* Maybe a C.
Jayden: That would help.
Faye: What was your favorite part or scene of the D@D?
Tristan: You mean Operation DDHK? I don’t have a favorite part. All of it was horrible! Demons kept trying to kill Aurora, my friends, me, then they used Herman—like we haven’t ruined his life enough. I tried to help and ended up torturing Aurora—
Blake: Whoa, dude. Calm down that wasn’t your fault.
Jayden: Well, technically—
Blake: *Grabs Jayden in headlock.* What’s that, logic boy? Yeah, Faye is more radiant than the sun.
Jayden: *Wrestles free.* That makes no sense. Faye isn’t luminescent in the slightest.
Faye: What do you see yourself doing in the say, next 10 years?
Blake: What do you see yourself doing? Because we could be doing it together.
Tristan: Unless she’s smart and gets the restraining order. Let’s see…in ten years—
Jayden: Of course such conjecture is predicated on the postulation that you’re still alive.
Tristan: *Pales* You think I’m going to be dead?
Jayden: I’m simply verbalizing the possibility based on the Mandatum’s mortality rate being much higher than those in the most hazardous professions of fishing or logging. And if you continue—
Tristan: Okay, let’s assume I’m alive, I see myself semi-retired from actual hunting and working within the Mandatum’s tech operations. I love computers and gadgets and they have the best. A lot of hunters with my abilities go into psychological operations but messing with people’s heads is dangerous. And it’ll get me drafted into the Sicarius. *shivers* Although I’ve got to find out how and why I affect Aurora like I do.
Faye: Overall, how do you think Alyssa and Eileen handled your story? I need me some more Hexy Boys!
Blake: Trust me, Babe, I’m the only Hexy Boy you need and you can have as much of me as you want.
Tristan: *Rolls eyes, pulls out phone to send quick text* Personally, I could do with one less. Seriously, Faye, I’ll back you up on that restraining order. Anyway, about our story, Jayden, I thought you were writing it.
Jayden: I’m chronicling our experiences, yes.
Tristan: So are Alyssa and Eileen your ghost writers?
Jayden: I don’t even know any ghosts. And if I did, I’d never entrust them with our story. Ghosts are notorious for affiliating with demons. And how would they type or write? Their ethereal embodiment would render that impossible.
Blake: *waggles eyebrows* Faye’s yum-body is meant for me. See what I did there?
Tristan: Shut up. The one problem with the story is that Aurora gets to tell her side, and sometimes it makes me look like a bad guy. Which I’m not. I know we made things worse, put her in danger, but remember, I tried to keep her out of this whole mess.
Jayden: Faye did suggest a spin-off. Then we could tell our version of events.
Blake: I’d need my own book. We could add a centerfold of me.
Tristan: I’m gonna be sick.
Faye: So things have gotten pretty exciting/crazy towards the end of D@D, what's next?
Tristan: We definitely need some questions answered in order to keep Aurora safe. Until we know more, we can’t trust anyone. And I have a feeling Aurora isn’t telling us everything. Jayden: That’s true. She often exudes a taciturn sense of reticence.
Blake: You think so? I always liked her perfume. But, Faye, let’s get back to what’s next for you and me. First, we should—
*Door bursts open*
Ayden: You going quietly this time Blake? *Rolls neck from side to side with audible pops.*
Blake: *Gapes at Tristan.* I can’t believe you called Ayden!
Matthias: He didn’t. He called me. I can’t believe you didn’t turn off the tracker in your car.
Tristan: I did! Jayden turned it back on!
Jayden: Why is everyone irate?
Blake: Don’t worry babe, I won’t let them take you.
Ayden: I’m not taking Faye. I’m taking you. She doesn’t deserve your slobbering hormones. Time to leave her alone.
Blake: Never. We’re meant to be!
Ayden: *Rolls eyes* If I had a nickel.
Matthias: He never makes it easy, does he. *Black whip snaps out and wraps around Blake and Matthias drags him outside*
Ayden: *Smiles at Faye* Since Blake’s gone, I’d be happy to stay and chat.
Matthias: *Yells from outside* I heard that. You’re not leaving me alone with this moron. I’ll drag you all out if I have to. But, uh, not you, Faye.
Ayden: *Shrugs* Was worth a try.
Tristan: *Pushing Jayden out the door* Thanks. And keep in mind, that restraining order is always an option.
