In Hell, coming promotion time, a class devil must pass a test: tempting Alfred's soul into damnation. successively throws in his path luxury (a seductive young woman), dishonesty (making money out of an illegal deal), and vanity for what he is not). All failures,either because he is not that or the Devil's misfortune.The Devil decides to use a cheap shot, and drugs Alfred's wife, so that she will be sexually attracted to the man who enters her house that day - and the Devil makes sure Alfred be there just in time to to kill the man in a fit of jealousy. A set silly circumstances force Alfred to arrive earlier home, so early will be the first man to pass the house's threshold that day... Written by Artemis-9
