Hear No Evil (microfiction)

Stacia followed Beelzebub past the river of fire. Pitchfork-wielding demons prodded naked souls to wade through the flames. Anguished screams echoed.

“Down this hall, your punishment awaits.” Beelzebub grinned. “You will listen to Justin Bieber’s Greatest Hits for eternity.”

“Nooooo!” screamed Stacia, sprinting back toward the flaming river.

  1. Haha! I don't have any advice for you but I enjoyed your concept of hell.

  2. I think this was a great choice for playing with the "fire" theme (so much doesn't need to be said when it's clear they're in hell!). I love the last line. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Tongue in cheek. Hahaha. Rather burn for eternity than to have a Bieber earworm? I get it.
    Color me amused :)
