♫♫♫I'm the best there ever was...♫♫♫ Remember the song about the young man that fiddled his way from the devil?
In cartoons we often see someone thinking about something he/she really, really shouldn't do, but wants do to it anyway (Dagwood Bumstead comes to mind). The devil's telling him , "Do it, do it, do it." The devil's sitting on the guy's left shoulder while the angel's sitting on the guys right shoulder saying, "No! Don't do it. Think of the consequences."
Remember the story of the guy that said he'd sell his soul for ....? Why did the devil show up and not the angel? Oh, no! The devil was the only one that showed up. Yet, the guy that sold his soul to the devil did good deeds and ultimately outwitted the devil. How would that have turned out if the angel had shown up rather than the devil, or if both the devil and angel appeared when the guy said he'd sell his soul? Let's find out.
Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:

There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.
Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.
Challenge: Write a story or poem about a person that says they'd sell their soul for ... Who shows up to buy that person's soul and how does it turn out when it's time to pay up?
