The Devil Looks After Himself
Replete with adoring fans who constantly clamored to shake his hand, take his photo, and just "BE" in his presence; surrounded by an entourage & pussy posse who shadowed him constantly; his effusive charm and unbridled charisma effectively concealed the darkness that lay within him. He was, at his core, sinister.
A man who had willingly made a Faustian agreement; selling his soul to the Devil in exchange for all the accouterments of power.
While attending an event where this power player was holding court and basking in his own celebrity, I watched him, yet again, easily seduce a room full of people convinced of their own moral fortitude and deep intellect while worshipping at the alter of personality.
As the bartender passed me the iced tea I had moments earlier asked for, he looked at me intently and whispered a prescient warning that sent a chill running through me.
" Remember, chica, El diablo se ocupa de él mismo. The devil looks after himself"
