Sympathy for the Devil?

He clawed wads of hair, yanking her head back, his face suffocatingly close. Smiling through clenched teeth, fetid breathing reeked of life decayed. Spittle spraying he hissed,

“My name? Just call me Lucifer.”


Trifecta’s weekend challenge Trifextra asks for 33 words inspired by the classic song  “Sympathy for the Devil” by The Rolling Stones.  The continued thread of introduction made me envision what it would be like if the devil decided to introduce himself. I didn’t imagine it would be a pleasant experience.
