This is like The Screwtape Letters in novel form! Very well done. I sincerely hope that the Lord gives Mary strength to resist the gossip and the demons sent to downplay her testimony.

Thumbs up!
I liked your title an you did a great job showing the demon get fatter each time a half-truth was told. Nice job.
I agree w/ Shann about the amusing title & w/ Amanda about the Screwtape association. Well executed. :)
Yes, I agree with the others. Very entertaining but filled with truth. I could have read more...
My favorite line:"Mrs. Tibbit said, sealing the gossip session with the two phrases that make it all ok." Isn't that the truth?!

Very well done!
this was very entertaining. The image of the demon falling from the ceiling and rolling around because he was so fat with gossip was great.

Greazle certainly enjoyed himself in this lively moral tale. I found your opening paragraph a little cliched with "tail between his legs" and "prayed the sinner's prayer." Your story quickly improved but it perhaps set a false tone early on. Great title by the way
The title drew me in and your story didn't disappoint. This creepy tale from the dark side was captivating from the start. Great visual descriptions. Laughed about the room contastantly shaking throughout the meal. A winner for sure.
I really love this one - excellent atmosphere and characters. Well done!
Enjoyed the story and its atmosphere. A cautionary tale to warn us that Satan stops at nothing to get his way with those who are seeking Christ.
Congratulations for placing 7th in this level and 29th overall!
