Deal with the Devil

by Linda Powell
Originally published by on 05/09/2018

Jim had made a deal with the devil. Aged twenty-five, he had poisoned and killed his wife, and got away with it. In exchange he would now live to be a hundred.

He woke up, in a room he didn't recognise. He remembered the car crash. But he couldn’t move.

Suddenly his sister-in-law was in front of him. "It's called locked-in syndrome," she said. "Don't worry, I'm going to look after you."

The devil appeared behind her. "I'll be coming for you when you're one hundred," he chuckled.

Unable to do anything else, Jim screamed inside.
