The Promise

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” is a misquote based on a passage from ‘The Mourning Bride,’ a play by William Congreve.

But Franklin wasn’t thinking about that as Satan stabbed him from behind with his pitchfork, forcing him into the pit of screaming tortured souls, while carrying the clay jar of water. Furthermore, he didn’t expect those same souls to be so self-possessed that they’d refuse to help him in his endeavor.

In his ear, Franklin could still hear Lucifer’s mocking words ring, “If you can cross the pit without spilling a drop, I’ll let you go.”
