Joshua & Micah

A story about family, standing up for your loved ones and the powers outside of our control.


Spoiler! :
Disclaimer: Though this story is tagged as religious, it's not exactly a story about embracing religion. It's a story about gods, and a little bit about Christianity, so it felt like the most accurate first genre description to pick. But there's a lot more than just Christianity involved, so be prepared for all sorts of religions and magic to come out of the woodwork during the course of the story.

Joshua is blessed. Everywhere he goes, people love him. They shower him with gifts, welcome him into their homes, and practically worship the ground that he walks on. No one knows why they do it - they just feel an undeniable devotion towards him.

Micah is cursed. People fear and hate him for his appearance: for his horns, his tail, his unnerving red eyes and pointed ears. Some are too scared to even interact with him, while others have absolutely no qualms with chasing him out of their villages - sometimes even with violence.

A meeting between the two should have ended in chaos and conflict, but their first meeting ends in a way that could never be anticipated: Joshua befriends Micah, and decides that he'll become his protector. With the most blessed person in the world at his side, no harm could ever befall Micah.

But humans aren't the only things in the world to worry about, and many people want to get their hands on Micah. Perhaps the most determined of all is the king of below, who sees himself in the person that Micah is slowly but steadily becoming. With witches and death at his disposal, it's only a matter of time before he finds him.

With an entire world against them, the only people that Micah and Joshua can rely on are each other. But can either one of them resist the temptations of the king and his loyal subordinates?
