Today’s Writing Prompt:

The devil’s name was Fred.

My 100 Words:

The prim British man shuffled through the filing cabinet next to his desk. I blinked again at the gold name plate staring back me. It said ‘Fred’.

I cleared my throat and asked, “What happened to Lucifer?”

He shuffled through cabinet’s contents, not looking up. “What a mess,” he muttered, crinkling his nose. “No, no, no.”

I frowned and cleared my throat again.

“Ah, here’s your file,” he said. His gaze met mine and his triumphant smile wavered. “Did you say something?”

“I asked what happened to Lucifer.”

He waved dismissively at me. “Oh, I bought his share of Hell.”


See what the others did!

      Thanks! 🙂 I had a lot of fun with this one! I’ve thought about expanding it. I really liked Fred, I want to get to know him better.

  2. I love how he just waves it off as no big deal that he bought part of Hell. Great character!

    haha, even Hell has prime real estate…
