The Devil’s Chains

This story involves my paternal grandfather. I don’t know if it is true, but it is a good story. My great-grandmother would always tell my grandfather that if he ever misbehaved or disrespected her, the devil would come with a chain and drag him down to hell.

Well…one night, he stayed out a little late and drank a little with the boys. By the time he decided to head home, it was well after midnight. Needless to say, he was scared to start with. Not only was it well past the time he was to be home, but he was also drunk! He knew that his mother would be very upset with him!!

Knowing that he couldn’t stand in the doorway of his friend’s house all night, he set out down the road to his house. It was a dark night with no moon in the sky. He could only see the unpaved road because it was lighter than the grass around it.

All the while he walked, he kept thinking about what his mother had said, “If you misbehave or disrespect me, the devil will come with a chain and drag you down to hell!!”
