The first brilliant line grabbed my instantly:
I know an old couple who live near Hell.
A man regularly stops at a B&B which is located near hell. He gives protection to a beautiful woman, spends a passionate night with her, talks to a demon.
Dialogue, setting, and those characters bound me to the narration. One wonders about the true motivations of the characters: Is the woman a runaway from hell? Is the demon sent to get her back or to win over his soul? Or is he simply a mad man, nothing of all is true? The story draws strength from the inconclusive ending: Whill he call her?
