    Summary

    There are, Johnny’s pastor will tell you, many ways to lose your soul. You can go gambling two towns over (or in the backroom of the Back Porch Bar on Saturdays), or go fishing on a Sunday morning, or sleep with your neighbor’s wife (sleeping with anyone other than your wife, really, will do it). Even a misplaced ‘oh my god’ is enough to damn you half the time, although a muttered ‘good lord’ gets past heaven’s radar, apparently. Disrespecting your mother, disobeying your father, listening to 101.3 FM WMXK, hitting snooze instead of getting yourself to the town revival—make any of a long list of missteps and, bam, there goes your soul, forfeited altogether unintentionally.

    When it comes to selling your soul, though, everybody knows there’s only one route for that, and it’s down Creekwood just as the sun sets, when the sky’s so red you’re left squinting at your windshield and praying you’re still on the right side of the dirt road, and behind you everything is already dark.

    Johnny, though, he’s a bit of a traditionalist when it comes down to it. He arrives on foot.
