|A musician recieves a gold guitar from the devil and tries to cheat the devil.|
THE DEVIL AND THE MUSICIAN Hi, my name is Tim, I have beaten the devil at his own game twice in my life, and when my time comes to die, I plan on cheating him again and going to heaven. My two experiences against the devil both consumed large quantities of time of my life, the first taking a full ten years to complete, the second 5 years with a span of 5 years in between the two episodes. When the first episode I was a 15 year old with dreams of becoming the greatest guitar player that ever lived. So, when the Devil approached me with this beautiful gold guitar the he claimed would make me a star, I didn'te even ask if there was a catch, not knowing at the time who I was talking to. Well, the guitar did its trick and for 10 years I lived like the King of Rock and Roll that I thought myself to be. At the end of 10 years I had managed to put away over 40 million dollars and was ready to expire, when the man that had given me the guitar that changed my life appeared and requested his payment for the guitar. When I asked him what he meant, he told me that in return for the guitar I needed to give him my soul. I weaseled my way out of this first deal by telling him that when I retired from the music business I wouldn't only give him my soul, but also the souls of all the band members at the time of retirement. With this in mind, I dispatched my band at the time and went solo for the remaining years of my career. For the rest of my playing days I thought I had beaten the Devil for good and then I decided to retire from the music business. Well, just as can be expected the Devil, showed up at my doorstep demanding I give him exactly what I had promised. Well, at this time, I had forgotten about the band members, but was soon reminded by the Devil. I told him I had gone solo and the rest of the band took off for Australia to escape some gang members they managed to piss of during their time as my band. He then gave me two choices: he took my family and me now or he let me live for another ten years to get another band together. I told him I wasn't going to take either one of the deals and he had no power over me as I had destroyed his guitar after he met with me the second time and had become a very religious Christian man. He thus left my dwelling and headed to who knows where looking very well defeated. That was my last battle of wits against the devil until my untimely death due to heart attack. As I reached the pearly gates of Heaven, I saw a young looking man all dressed in black standing in wait for me. As I approached I realized it was a younger form of the Devil. I quickly ran past him and to the pearly gates and yelled for help, thats when I heard the Voice of God come booming down from far above: Son, all contracts that are signed by blood must be fulfilled, I cannot allow you to pass through these gates due to the contract you signed in blood with the Devil when you were fifteen years of age. Well, as far as I can tell, that was about a year ago up on Earth, for all of you that say that I never truly beat the devil, I say this: to this day, I have not stopped my fight against the Devil, and until I stop I consider myself to be a living human being, even though I am trapped in Hell. Never give up your hopes of stardom, freedom, or happiness. As long as you keep fighting for it, you will achieve it. Tweet
