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.

Now he is in a large room with stone walls and a stone floor. There is a woman wearing an embroidered robe and holding an iron staff, and the floor under his feet is covered in a thin coating of frost; random patterns in that frost have happened to form a circle, which is already beginning to melt in places.

The woman with the robe and staff regards Cam with a thoughtful, slightly perturbed expression. Assuming she is his summoner, she has given him several new languages: one which is mutually intelligible with English but varies substantially in its details, one which seems to be a kind of crypto-Latin with an attached runic alphabet in addition to the Latinlike one it shares with pseudo-English, and one which has no roots in anything Cam has ever heard of. She speaks pseudo-English natively, and reads and writes the others with scholarly fluency.

"Did it," she says. "And what would normally have happened next?"

"I see," she says. "And on my end, I've cast many a frost spell before and none of them has ever resulted in any strange half-naked winged men appearing before me. What do we make of this pair of mysteries?"

"A frost spell is a spell which brings about frost. I can do them because I'm a mage. What sort of person are you that shows up in circles speaking all the same languages as nearby people?"

"You don't look much like the type of demon I'm familiar with. Nor do you act like them. I suspect you also don't have very many properties in common. I suggest you think of a different word and use that one exclusively from now on."

"If you were a demon and not an apsel, you would be a spirit from the Fade, unable to take physical form in this physical realm without possessing a host. You would not naturally look like a perfectly ordinary human who happened to have wings and a tail."

"Yes," she says. "It's very clear to me that you are not what I am used to calling a demon. Which is a good thing, because if I had brought a demon into the world even by accident I would be facing some uncomfortable questions from the templars."

"The templars are the people whose job it is to make sure that any mages who start communing with demons or practicing blood magic are discouraged from continuing. Fatally discouraged, most of the time."

"...Arbitrary matter?"

"'Anti-matter'. That sounds... disquieting."

"I suspect I'm not going to be short on things to be disquieted about. For example, if one apsel has appeared accidentally, does that mean there might be more?"
