Tom and his wife where very parsimony, they hid their most valuable stuff from each other. They wanted everything for themselves and didn't care about each other they even starved the animals on their farm.
Tom walker saw a black figure one day walking through the swamp trying to find a shortcut home. That figure made a deal with him for him to be wealthy as long as he sold his soul to him. His wife tried to make the same deal when she heard but died.
Tom sold his soul to the black man in the woods and he got wealthy. He had his own business but one day he mentioned the devil and the devil came and got him. He was on a horse and the horse was the path to hell so every step it took it was on fire.
