Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 70
…Speak of the Devil…
“Why do I have this atrocious feeling that this Libby situation is not finished?” Pentateuch, the merchant of immorality, has been fighting an eternal battle, the battle for a world filled with unbelievers. The denial of God’s existence is almost secondary to his other mission: ‘If mankind does not believe that I (the devil & his minions) is real and walking among them, they a like ripe fruit from low hanging branches.’ “You tell me he has died, froze to death, instead of being locked away?”
“We didn’t think he would be exposed to the cold for so long,” Canisso proves just how imperfect evil can be.
“Do you not think the Divine One will seek to avenge this innocent man’s death? This wasn’t just an ordinary human, Canisso, he was about to tell the world that they have been lied to, the fraud of all time. After all, what is ten billion years among friends? To those of us who are ceaseless, the passing of time is of little matter, a million, so what. But to a human, it is maybe 70 years, most of which is spent clinging to their precious life.
“And up until now, they have been properly bamboozled, choosing to believe their flawed science, rather than the Word of the God who made them.”
“God made us too, Master.”
Upon reflecting on that not small fact, Pentateuch reverts to his defiant nature, “We were His Angels also Canisso, but we seized the power to be His equal, while the others chose to hang around and worship Him.
What a bold stance to take, be it brave or delusional.
“Who among “them” would be willing to sell their soul Canisso?” the Dark Deceptor refers to that pesky CCPI bunch, which has not gone away. “One of them must lust after money, power, ecstasy, something.”
“That cabbie Eddie sure would like to be some sort of hero or famous or both.”
If any one of them can be had, Pentateuch will test them, tempt them, take them for his own.
