Weekly Prompt Story: The Bet

The Bet
By Christopher Munroe

I’ve made a bet with a demon. We’ll be playing the fiddle shortly.

I admit, this isn’t the best idea I’ve had. Nonetheless, it’s how I’ll be spending my day.

Should I beat this demon, I’ll receive a fiddle made of gold. Pure, sparkling gold. Gold of the finest quality, it’s a beautiful instrument.

Should I lose, the demon gets a fiddle made of gold from me, which I won in a bet with a previous demon, a few years ago.

We’d plaid Magic: The Gathering for that bet.

I’m very good at Magic: The Gathering.

Fiddle? Not so much.
