A - Z: Volatile Vortex

A - Z Challenge 2013:
The Paranormal Case Files of Indigo Eady
Hey bloggers! I’m Indigo Eady and I play the leading role in Givin’ Up The Ghost, A Guilty Ghost Surprised and Second Death, written by Gwen Gardner.  I've had some pretty interesting paranormal experiences, to say the least. I mean, just look at those titles!
So I’ve been asked by Gwen to host and share some of my paranormal case files for the A-Z Challenge.
I’m always happy to help Gwen out. Right now I’m trying to get on her good side so she’ll ease up on the clumsy angle of my character. And maybe she’ll even give me a little more confidence, especially around boys. Oh, and I’d totally love it if she made my bubble butt just a little bit smaller. So—you know—if you enjoy my case files, maybe you could put in a good word for me…
V is for Volatile Vortex.
Now I did mention the Soul Collector when I talked about Lucifer’s Cage and how Lucifer had access to his minions, even though he was locked up. But I don’t think I mentioned that the Soul Collector is actually a vortex.
So what is a vortex? It’s an evil entity, a sub-category of demon. A dark, swirling mass that sucks the life energy from its victims until it reaches the soul. That’s the real goal. A Soul Collector who lives off energy of the living, but saves the soul for Lucifer.
Here’s a scene right after I had an encounter with the Soul Collector:
“Bloody hell,” said Simon, “I hope I never meet it. I mean face-to-face. Through the door was bad enough.” He shuddered. 
Hannah nodded in agreement, whispering. “Lor, Miss. It frightens me somethin’ awful.”
“But what does it want from me?” I focused my sight between Simon and Riley, both thinking I was speaking to them. They shrugged and shook their heads. “Not you two – Hannah.” I pointed. “She’s sitting between you.”
“What?” Their voices echoed in unison as they quickly moved apart.
“Oh, Hannah is in here quite often with us. She knows everything that’s going on, don’t you Hannah? She especially likes cell, er, mobile phones.”
“Yes, Miss. I’ve learned how to use them. There never was such a thing in my time.” She leaned in and whispered, “You lot would have been burned for witches.” She said it with relish, as if a day at a hanging was the best entertainment ever.
We were getting off track. “But Hannah, what does it want?”
Her form flickered in and out. She glanced around furtively. “Your soul, Miss.”
“My what?”
What what?” said Simon. “What’s she saying?”
I ignored him. “Why does it want my soul? What will he do with it?” And then I remembered Shelly being frightened as well. “And what does it want with Shelly – or you, for that matter?”
“Oh, it wants us as well, but it’s mostly you. You have a most powerful energy, you see? You can speak with both sides equally. It’s afraid of what you can do, that you will help the lost souls. It collects souls and uses the energy to survive.”
Now I'm sure you've never seen a vortex--have you?
