An interview​ with the devil

Devil: So what interests you?

Soul: What do you mean?

Devil: What do you do in your spare time…

Soul: Well at the moment I spend all my free time waiting to go for you to decide if I go to heaven or hell. It’s taking a rather long while…

The Devil sighs placing his hands on his head.

Devil: I mean before you died.

Soul: I didn’t have any free time, spent every moment either with my kids or at work.

Devil: Let me try another approach.

Soul: Thank goodness as this doesn’t seem to be getting us anywhere.

The Devil sighs again, sinking further into a hunched position.

Devil: Did you do any bad deeds in your life?

Soul: Well, that is a rather big and unanswerable question.

Devil: How?

Soul: Who knows what classes as a bad deed, after all, what is bad? Isn’t it dependent on a person’s own morals and knowledge, so what they think is bad and good may be completely different to someone else…

Devil: Just go to heaven I can’t take this anymore.

    Interesting interpretation, Sarah! It would be an interesting world if it was the Devil who judged the souls before passing into the next realm (if that’s your belief, anyway). Though I can see how anyone could shoo someone away after making that point. A brilliant point you have made.
