The Devil and Tom Walker
By nataya, Updated
Tom Walker and his wife were a very miserly couple. They disliked each other and were always cheating on each other.
Tom Walker was on his way home one day and decided to take a shortcut through the forest. He was kicking the ground and ended up kicking a skull and running into the devil.
The Devil tried striking a deal with Tom Walker and he wasn't taking it. The Devil tried convincing him by telling him he had killed a close friend of theirs.
Tom went home and his wife mentioned the friend that had died. Tom decided to tell his wife what happened at the forest.
Tom's wife left for the forest later and took the deal with the Devil. She went missing and was never found. A lot of stories went around about what happened.
Tom Walker took the Devil's business advice and made many people poor while he was getting rich. He was always cautious to have the Holy Bible with him while he was at work because he felt like the Devil was going to come back for him.
