Tuesday Tales – Challenge 6

The Devil You Know
“Trepidation is not prognostication Jack.” Lou flopped down heavily on the torn loveseat. “You’ve done it before, you’ll do it again.”
“Not this time old friend, too many close calls.” He swirled non-existent ice cubes around his whiskey then tossed it back. “It’s like falling without a parachute.”
“You need it friend.” Lou waved around a bag of powder. “One last time? For old time’s sake.”
He poured another whiskey then snatched the bag. “For old time’s sake.”
Lou smiled knowingly.
Cloudily, Jack realized his friend had lied, trepidation was indeed prognostication, but then again, who can believe the devil?
