#Dance with the devil -2

He danced with the devil, and he knew it. But he didn’t care. He was willing to do whatever it takes to get what he wanted.

The man’s name was Alex, and he was a businessman. He had everything he could ever wish for – money, power, respect everything. But it wasn’t enough. He wanted more. He wanted to be the best, and he was willing to do anything to achieve the things he wanted.

And that’s when he met the devil. The devil promised him everything he ever wanted, but at a price. The price was his soul. Alex didn’t hesitate. He signed the contract and danced with the devil.

At first, things were fine. He got everything he wanted and more. He was the best businessman in town, and people respected him. But as time went on, he realized that he had made a huge mistake. he was not listening to his heart.  He had sold his soul to the devil, and there was no going back.

The devil started to demand more and more from him. He wanted him to do things with which he wasn’t comfortable. He wanted him to hurt people, to tell lies, to cheat people. And Alex did all of those things, but he was not feeling good about it. He knew that he was doing something wrong, but he couldn’t stop.

One day, he realized his mistake. He couldn’t take it anymore. He realized that he needed to fix it. He went to the devil and asked for his soul back, but the devil refused. He told him that he had signed a contract, and there was no going back.

But Alex didn’t give up. He knew that he had to find a way to break the contract. He started to research and study everything he could about the devil and how to break a contract with him. And finally, he found a way.

He went to the devil and challenged him to a game of chess. If he won, he would get his soul back. The devil accepted the challenge, thinking that he would win easily.

But Alex was an expert chess player. He had been playing chess since he was a child, and he was unbeatable. He learned every trick from the book, and he used them all.

The game went on for hours, and the devil started to get frustrated as he was going to lose the game. He had never lost a game of chess before, and he didn’t like the situation. But Alex was determined. He wanted his soul back, and he wasn’t going to give up.

Finally, after many hours, Alex won the game. The devil was furious, but he had to keep his promise of the bargain. He gave Alex his soul back, and Alex was free.

From that day on, Alex lived a different life. He knew that he had made a mistake, and he decided never to make this mistake again. He became a better person, a kinder person. He helped people and did good things.

He knew that he had danced with the devil, and he had paid the price. But he had also learned a valuable lesson. He knew that sometimes, we make mistakes, but we can always fix them. And sometimes, we have to face our fears and challenge ourselves to be better.

In the end, Alex realized that he didn’t need to dance with the devil to be successful. He could do it on his own, with hard work and determination. And that was the greatest lesson of all.

  1. The first part is even better than Washington Irving’s short story about devil. And the 2nd part is quite surprising. I guess we all have to fight the devilish part of ourselves in order to be free of bad influences.

  2. That’s a nice story that reminded me of a few things in Swedish folklore. First, one of the most popular folksongs (Hårgalåten) where the young people of Hårga all danced with the devil until they were all dead. Well that did not end as well as this story. Then the 1957 movie the Seventh Seal in which the protagonist, a medieval knight, played chess with death for his soul. Unfortunately, he lost too. This story was more uplifting and optimistic.
