Chapter 10 Nina's Art

Plate 6 - Lambs to Slaughter

"Some peoples say the devil is beautiful. I believe 'em. I don't see how he could be like they always show; all red with claws and fangs an' them devil-eyes because that would be terrible. People would be afraid. When that ol' devil come, they run; they say, 'No devil, NO!'

But if he beautiful, then people crowd right up and buy whatever he sellin'. That's how he get 'em. People come to get one thing, they end up with another. Sometime they don't even know it but till it too late.
Th' devil...he got 'em."

--- Samuel "Lil-D" Dinkum-Rowe
