THESE ARE MY FRIENDS

“The reason the king is so powerful is because he’s made a pact with the devil.”, a very devout woman in the street told the boy, and he was intrigued.

Some time later, when he was travelling to another town, the boy heard a man beside him remark: “All this land belongs to the same man. I’d say the devil had a hand in that.”

Late one summer afternoon, a beautiful woman walked past the boy.

“That woman is in the service of Satan.” cried the preacher angrily.

From then on, the boy decided to seek the devil out, and when he found him, he said:

“They say you can make people powerful, rich, and beautiful.”

“Not really,” replied the devil. “You’ve just been listening to the views of those who are trying to promote me.”
