One Way or Another...

 The hunters had the poor girl trapped in a corner. She couldn't help who her parents were, and yet here they were judging her on her looks. She wasn't evil. She hadn't harmed anyone. All she wanted to do was exist. Just like they did. She couldn't cut off her tail and horns, any more than the hunters would chop off their arms and feet. The world was just so unfair, she thought mournfully as the glowing entrapment orbs flowed through the air toward her to send her back to hell. Ha! Back to hell, as if she had ever been there in the first place. She was born in the human world and was part of the human world. Sending her to hell would be like deporting a human born to immigrants back to their parent's homeland, not knowing the language and norms. She was so dead if she was sent to hell.
