The story begins with Robert and his wife, Ta'Kera arguing and acting hateful towards each other. They even hide things from each other, such as money.
While in the cave, Robert is approached by the devil who wants to make a deal with him. The devil offers him a lifetime of wealth and fame.
Robert goes home to think about the deal. His wife wants him to accept the deal, so he declines it. His wife goes to the woods to accept the deal herself and doesn't come back. With his wife gone, Robert comes up with a new deal for the devil. He wants wishes, instead.
Robert starts getting scared. He wants to find a way to get out of his deal with the devil, so he goes to church to have a talk with God.
The devil arrives to try to make Robert ask for his last wish. Robert doesn't want to. The devil threatens him into doing so.
Robert made an unselfish wish that caused his contract to be voided. He was so happy, he cried tears of joy. He never took life for granted again.
