The new born of Ruddy Becker was being baptized inside the church. The score of people gathered inside were watching the rites being performed.

Tom the old gardener who had been cleaning the belfry spied a movement in the back lawn. He came down to find a balding man in a windcheater at the north door.

You can go in from this door too.

No, I am waiting for someone to come out.

Nobody except the devil is going to walk out of this gate.

I know, but I have a message for him from the new one.

  1. Dear Yarnspinner,

    You crafted a delightfully dark and somehow hopeful message, mystery though it remains. I enjoyed your use of language and pacing to put me in the mood to know more. Thank you.



  2. Dear YS,

    “By the pricking of my thumbs something wicked this way comes.” Can’t say it better than Shakespeare. A spooky illustration of evil lurking at the gates. Good one.



    • πŸ™‚ Thanks for the visit and interest.

      You asked the trickiest question. In the interest of fiction I should write the 2nd part.
      However, when I posted it – i just wanted to convey that each age has a new devil of its own to contend.

I love arguments
