The Eternal Fire
 by Christina Sng
It is time.

With one eye on the rapidly setting sun, Hestia races to the Great Library and finds the ancient tome right where she hid it, behind a hollow brick in the Archives wall.

She opens the old leathery book to the spell page, summoning a shimmering bright portal and leaping in before it abruptly snaps shut.

Moments later, the Resident Archivist finds the tome face up on the ground. Curious, he bends down to pick it up, reading the open page:

"Offer your Soul and Live Forever.
The Cost: Your World in Eternal Fire."

Astonished, he realizes he's found it: Darkst Magiks, the lost grimoire he's searched centuries for! Now, he will live forever.

Before he can recite the spell, the sky abruptly darkens and the sun vanishes behind a wall of clouds. Hellfire rains down from the heavens, incinerating everything.

The ground has not stopped burning on Venus.
