  • THE DEVIL AND TOM WALKER
  • According to old stories, under one large tree sat a great amount of treasure buried by KiDd pirate. Unfortunately, this was the home of the devil And since Kidd had stolen the treasure anyway; the devil chose to keep it.
  • around the year 1727, there lived a greedy man named tom walker. he lived with his wife who was just as greedy as he was. They were so greedy that they would even think of ways to cheat  each other.  WHATEVER THE WIFE GOT HER HANDS ON, SHE WOULD HIDE FROM HER HUSBAND AND THIS WOULD ALWAYS LEAD TO A FIGHT; ONE THAT THE HUSBAND ALWAYS LOST.TOM AND HIS WIFE LIVED IN A VERY POOR HOME  with no heat for winter and no food for the animals. It was a cold place that NO MAN DARED TO ENTER.
  • one day, Tom walker  decided to take the shortcut home. He had only been  walking for a short while when he arrived at a firm tree. he decided to rest for a while, but when he went to have a seat,Tom noticed something lying by the tree. It was skull , Tom started to move closer when he heard a voice say "let the skull alone" Tom turned around and seen something he had never seen before."who are you? ",tom asked."I am the devil and i will give you all my gold, if you give me your  soul." he replied. but tom refused, this was very odd  because tom seemed to be the greediest man alive.
  • WHO ARE YOU ?
  • PEOPLE CALL ME THE DEVIL
  • Later that night, Tom returned home and told his wife about the offer OF GOLD the devil had MADE, THIS MADE HIS WIFE VERY HAPPY. however, WHEN TOM SEEN HOW HAPPY IT MADE HER HE REFUSED AND SAID WOULD NEVER GO THROUGH WITH IT. his wife happiness quickly turned into anger, so much anger that she stormed out the house and said she'd make the deal herself .She figured she could have all the gold to herself. well, first hours passed with no sign of tom's wife, then days. When tom returned to the spot were he'd met the devil to look for her , all he found was her heart and liver wrapped in her apron.This made Tom very happy, so happy that he set out to thank the devil.
  • WELL, I'LL DO IT 
  • days passed until Tom finally saw the devil again, but when he did he was very grateful for what he had done to his wife. tom felt like he had to do something to repay him. THE DEVIL TOLD TOM THAT ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS LEND MONEY OUT TO ANYBODY THAT WANTED IT AND WHEN THEY COULD NOT PAY IT BACK TOM HAD TO TAKE EVERY THING FROM THEM.TOM AGREED AND THEY SHOOK HANDS AND WENT THEIR WAYS.years PASSED AND TOM GREW VERY RICH, SO RICH THAT HE WAS ABLE TO BUILD HIM A NEW HOME AND BUY A CARRIAGE FOR THE HORSE HE STILL DIDN'T FEED.
  • WELL Tom Grew OLDER AND HE DECIDED THAT HE DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE THINGS AWAY FROM INNOCENT PEOPLE ANYMORE. SO,HE BEGAN TO THINK OF WAYS TO CHEAT THE DEVIL OUT OF THE DEAL.TOM STARTED GOING TO CHURCH,READING THE BIBLE,AND HE STOPPED PAYING THE DEVIL.THIS MAD THE DEVIL VERY ANGRY,SO ANGRY THAT HE WENT TO TOM'S HOME AND DRAGGED HIM DEED INTO THE TRAILS. THE NEXT DAY, ALL HIS RICHES WERE GONE, HIS HORSE HAD DIED, AND HIS HOME WAS BURNT TO THE GROUND. tom was never heard of again and since he was so mean for so many years, nobody went to look for him.
