The moral of this short story is don't make deals with the devil. It will cost you your soul and your descendents' souls, possibly.



My personal interpretation: If you are gonna make deals with the devil, don't think you can pull a fast one on him. It will cost you your soul and your descendents' souls, possibly.



Sins of the father and all that.



I enjoyed this gothic tale. It was a short, well-translated story.

If you are scared of spiders, you might want to skip this one.
