Inside Mephisto's office, the Lord of the Damned was sitting at his desk, with his wife, Kylie straddling him on his lap, kissing along his jawline. He purred demonically, while running his long fingers through her short, thick brunette hair. Mephisto was about to lean in to suckle her neck, but he realized they had company. He turned his head and sat up. Kylie was about to ask what was going on, until she, too, turned to look at 'You'. As if on cue, Mephisto cleared his throat, while straightening his tie and smiled, revealing his shark-like teeth.
"So sorry, we didn't hear you come in!" Mephisto apologized, while chuckling. "I can't believe we nearly forgot about tonight's story." He then turned and looked at Kylie, still smiling and the glimmer of lust still present in his reptilian, golden eyes. "Then again, that's what happens when you have such a gorgeous wife to distract you." Kylie giggled, softly at her husband's compliment. The Demonic Queen positioned herself more comfortably on her husband's lap, so that she was directly facing their guest. She grabbed a large book off the desk and brought it in front of her.
"Let's face it, from television, films, books and magazine spreads, mortals and their culture is driven with lust. Now, it's true that healthy doses is good for the human condition and makes the world go round, as well as one of the many ways to have fun with your spouse or significant other..." Mephisto trailed off, while slipping his forked tail underneath Kylie's black, gown to wrap it around her thigh. "While we know that over indulgence in lust can in many cases lead to terrible consequences, repression of such wants is just as dangerous. It can cause someone to develop gluttonous desires in twisted and depraved territories of kinks, even obsession." Kylie warned. "Such was the case of a bible-thumping, prideful, hypocritical preacher named, Samuel Sykes, once he laid eyes on a beautiful police woman, who shared the same faith as him. It's a fucked up, kinky story called..."
Kylie opened up the book to reveal a comic-book style illustration of Samuel Sykes in a state of fear, while surrounded by flames and above him was the object of his sexual obsession, Roxanna Johnson, whom was crucified on the cross, smiling down at him, evilly.
"The Melancholy of the Pious." Mephisto and Kylie said in perfect unison.
