The Devil was sitting on the Birthday cake!
She looked around.
Could the others see him too?
The Devil then went from the cake to the cookies.
Why, you little...
The Devil looked at her, sneering.
She couldn't believe no one was freaking out.
The Devil chewed slowly, still sneering.
“Would you like some tea with that?” she said out loud.
Everyone looked at her.
“It's the Devil!”
“You're crazy.” And they laughed.
He was gone.
But, the next year, she could swear, she saw the Devil again, mocking her from afar.
Perhaps her end was near.
