      Just thought you might want to know what Luci’s chess pieces do on their down time…

      • I do so very much appreciate knowing. I see at least one of the horsey set is “GASP” in reality a Unicorn!

        How bad can he be when he has a Unicorn. Poor Luci is so misunderstood. Only those that can be swayed are susceptible to his delightfully charming offers.

        Yes he cheats at chess (it is what he does) as the Irish Imp warned but if you keep your eye on him, Luci will grudgingly, return the piece to it’s proper position.

        Beyond the pieces is the meaning in the piece. It is so pleasing to see one that has been depressed, repressed, distressed if not reborn, vitally renewed.

        That renewal Milady is a true and pure delight!

          That very well may be the Last Unicorn!

          Naturally, Luci cheats- all the movies/books/plays say so. But just how is he so misunderstood?

          And thank you… ;c)

        • Historical Data shows Luci will bargain and enjoys games of chance. If you catch him at it he will give it up and restore what he cheated you out of. Luci has been shown to be of his word too. You win your soul back fair and square you’re free to go.

          Now the Irish Imp lamented that Luci was still cheating and winning more souls.

          What very many do not seem to consider is that “The Lord” wanted those souls he was said to be cheated out of in perpetuity and let Luci think he was cheating him out of something.

          We have a win / win situation here. The Lord doesn’t have to pay as close attention and Luci is happy for a time with what he thinks he stole. Simple stuff huh?

          There is far far worse you could face than Luci Ms Moppet!

        • Correction, to “that one could face” not “that you could face”.

        • The Irish Imp so noted him as well Milady. You may even know of the creature yourself.

          At thy beckon I will share.

          Go on. I’m sure we all want to know.

          Maybe I’ll even leave said creature a zucchini someday.

          Wait- which creature? The Traveller, or Chris de Burgh?

        • Excellent point!

          The creature is “The Traveller”. De Burgh would be the Irish Imp.

          Some would refer to De Burgh as a Wandering Minstrel. Some would refer to The Traveller as an Archangel. Those people would be correct on both.

          Care for a little AngelCin? I’m having some.
