David: The Trial

The evil god Shaitan challenged a man. “Reach my temple and gain your fondest desire. Fail, and become my slave eternal.”

The man began walking.

Shaitan threw a wall of fire before him. The man walked through it and was burned.

Shaitan sent a mighty wind. The man pushed against it.

Shaitan sent torrential rain, soaking the ground to mud that sucked down the man’s feet, and lashing his face. Each step was an eternity.

Shaitan reappeared as the man neared the temple. “You impress me. You may stop; I grant your desire.”

“That’s… okay. I’ve… got it… from here.”
