Souls Will Seek Their Own Level

This one is vaguely inspired by the latest Radiolab.

Souls Will Seek Their Own Level
By Mark L.S. Stone

“Don’t you think it’s ironic that you must bargain with me, even though it will empower me to hunt your kind?”

The demon’s expression remained mild. “It is my nature to accept your offer. As water runs downhill, souls will seek their own level.”

“So you see no irony?”

“You are the one who fails to understand this situation. The nature of a thing will out. You cannot fight darkness with darkness. Darkness can only be defeated with light, strength with weakness, pride with humility. It is a lesson that you will never learn.”

Unfortunately, he was only half right.
