Eric says: The rockstar with the heart of a daddy. Who's Noelle's mom? What does Deke mean when he thinks of home and family? And a WIP? Nice.

Eric says: "Hit me." Demons, Faustus, and taut violence in a well-told, complete scene that left me wanting more.
“What?” I put down my book - not Faustus, for once - before standing up.
“You need to unlearn your compassion, Videl. Making you violent is a start.”
“That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Besides, I don’t have a reason to hit you.”
“You do now.” He motions for me to look behind me. My mother lies at the room’s entrance, bloody, bound, and gagged.
“Mom?” I try to reach her, but Marcus cuts me off. My chest tightens, and I suppress the urge to cry by clenching my fists, my nails digging into my palms until they’re almost bleeding. “I’m going to kill you, Marcus.”
“Go ahead.” He spreads his arms, welcoming me to hit him.
When I launch myself at him, he lets me pin him to the floor, barely flinching. I punch his face until blood runs out the corner of his mouth and bruises have already formed on his cheeks. Without warning, he flips us, pinning me to the floor by my wrists.
“That’s enough for now.” With another gesture, he takes my attention to my mom. She stands, morphing before my eyes into Max. If possible, I’m even more enraged, and I know he can see the fury in my eyes. “Tap into that next time I ask you to hit me.”
