Giving the Devil His Due

Post by eric_marsh » Fri Apr 10, 2015 12:23 am

I was elderly when my alchemy called up the Prince of Demons. Though he tried to trick me I was resolute. I would only trade my eternal soul for a body that is incorruptible and eternally youthful. He agreed and I laughed at him, swearing that he would never collect his due.

When I later begged Satan to take my soul he laughed and rebuked me, saying that even though I lacked commitment to my oath he would hold me to it.

Black holes are supposed to die in enormous explosions. I look forward to seeing light one last time.

I am loving the idea of this. It's well written and creative as hell, bravo.
If I wrote it you can read it unless you sound like Fran Drescher.

Thanks! Medieval beliefs and cutting edge physics seem like an odd mix but I thought I'd see if they can work together.
