“Wake up! We’re here!” Iris opened her eyes and immediately noticed the pink kitten sitting on her face. She quickly got up off the grimy wooden floor and groaned in discomfort. Then the cat purred and meowed, but her mind translated it into actual words.
“I’ve got a good feeling about you Kid! My name’s Captain Laura Jacobs… I’ll come by sometime and place some bets on you, assuming that you’re still around by then. Hahaha~!”
At that moment, everyone within the ship was teleported into a huge pool of steaming blood. Regardless of how broken or tattered their bodies had become, their wounds swiftly healed and those who weren’t hurt, felt reinvigorated.
There was a chunk of brain matter and some bone chips that came together, eventually growing into the body of a young Hispanic woman. As long as there was a single chunk of meat left, it would still be able to regenerate into its original form within that slimy red goop.
A huge, three-meter tall, four-armed, dark-skinned man was standing at the shallow end of the pool. He had big elephant-like tusks coming out of the sides of his mouth, while his three eyes were bright-red. He was wearing a loincloth, but nothing else.
Iris swam to the side of the pool and got out before anyone else even knew what was going on. It wasn’t her first time, so she wasn’t surprised when the ogre roared “Alright! Listen up you maggots! From now on, the lot of you are in the entertainment industry! And by that, I mean you’ll fight, die and fight again in order to get paid! If you lose and don’t die, then you can either pay with a soul to stay here or your on the next boat outta here! We ain’t like those pussies on Lust! We’re vengeance and rage demons! We don’t fuck! We fight, we kill, we die and we like torture! So unless you’re really good at bondage or happen to be a psychotherapist, then don’t even try to beg for us to let you stay!”
Meanwhile, dozens of similarly beefy men started wading into the nasty goo. They were quickly gathering up the people who were already fully healed and dragging them out of the pool. There were over a thousand humans, ranging from ten year old children to ninety year old elders. However, nearly all of them were teenagers, young adults and middle-aged men and women.
A tall man in his twenties was covering his genitals with his hands, as he timidly asked “Then, are we allowed to go back home? Do we really need to fight?”
The largest ogre immediately snarled and punched the man in the chest, shattering his sternum and causing him to fly a few meters into the air. After smashing into the stone floor, his head was cracked open and blood gushed from his various orifices.
However, contrary to his unnecessarily violent reaction, the demon calmly replied “That’s a good question. The trip from here to Earth costs ten souls. In other words, you’re all debt slaves at this moment. If you want to leave, then fine, all you need to do is earn back those ten souls you owe us. After that, I really don’t give a damn what you do! Now, somebody throw that asshat back into the pool!”
