Summary:
NOTE: 
 If you are here and you haven't read the first two stories of the "Souls In Bondage" series, this story will make literally ZERO sense.  This is an ancillary tale to  "LA Is the Hell You Make It", originally written as a gift for Magnus, and is the only "Tales from the SiBverse" fic that cannot be read as a standalone
***

Summary:
Some demons aren't in our dimension to start trouble.  

Some demons just wanna do a job.  

Heck.  Some demons just want to get out of their home dimension, because they're teeming with others of their own kind, they're crowded, they're boring, life is monotonous.

Any job will do.  Even plumbing a dying city in the human world. 

But then... Dreams get in the way.  An out-of-practice Morpheus demon just trying to make an honest buck can easily get sucked into the desperate, guilty REM-sleep of a Slayer who's just tragically lost her lover in the ending of the world a month or two ago.  At which point, things tend to spin rapidly out of control.  Because tinkering with mortal dreams?

Definitely not in the work-contract.
