trade my soul for a wish

This is a successor to "call me maybe", which is getting crowded.

Cam is dipping a grilled cheese sandwich into a bowl of tomato soup when he feels the summons. He goes ahead and grabs it. Doesn't even drop the sandwich.

He arrives in a - forest. A cold forest, there's snow on the ground over there. Not here, though, the area around the circle is neatly clear of snow in a perfect and slightly larger circle. The circle's dribbled in some unidentifiable liquid. Or - actually, the summoner seems to be adding other things to the circle, it's not done yet. Not the outside portions, anyway.

Also the summoner is naked. That might be relevant. She notices the new shadow and peers at Cam. "... How did that happen?" she wonders, completely unbothered by being naked in the snow.

"... Because you're his daemon?" says the naked summoner. "Why are you confused about your daemon?"

"... The 'snake,'" she says dryly, "is your soul. It is called a daemon. I would have thought you'd be familiar with it by now."

"Because you have a soul and if you didn't, you would be mindless? ... Are you like one of the bears, is your soul your armor or something...?"

"... Very well. Every single human or witch in the world has a daemon. The daemon is their personified soul. That is the literal definition. Souls are not - theological, that would be idiotic, why would I care if they were? If one of them is hurt or in pain, the other is hurt or in pain. No one but you should touch your daemon, outside of someone you trust completely. Daemons know their other half outside and in. The snake is you, without her you would not be a person. If you had shown up without one I would have thought you were a zombie, because a soul is a rather important thing to be missing. You missing your own head would be less jarring."

She doesn't seem to have a snake of her own, strangely enough.

"My soul is not a snake, I am a witch, so he is a bird. He is away on an errand, I was summoning him to save him the flight back, but before I'd even finished my runes, you appeared. Mortals' daemons can be various animals. I... wouldn't know what to think. Perhaps your soul was curled up inside of you, asleep? If that was not the case, you would not be a person. Other people can't touch her because she is - your soul. It's. The most personal and private and vulnerable part of you. I believe mortals in this country execute people who purposely touch someone's soul. I know witches would, certainly. And armored bears keep their souls in their armor, I don't know why, I've never met one."

She sighs. "Because I'm a witch I can be separate from my soul. So he is on an errand, because it's convenient."

"Yes. I am quite confused myself. Where are you from that summoning a person is ordinary, and why do you not also have soul animals, how do you do anything? Why do you have wings? What is a demon?"

"... There are no daeva here, and no space stations or colonies on either the Moon or Mars. And the year is 2012. Aside from that, this is Earth, and there are mostly humans living on it. Along with witches and armored bears and soul animals."

"I apologize for potentially causing you harm by accident," says the witch. "I will try to get you home safely."

She looks at the snake. "Yes. Usually they're named on birth by the parent's daemons. But you're something of a special case."

Witch-lady quirks an eyebrow. "That was fast. Well, it's a fine name, and sounds daemon-ish."

"Not really, but they're usually... longer than ordinary names. Somewhat more formal. It would be strange for you to name a daemon Tyler or something."
