Episode 1

So, after a few weeks' procrastination, Harold got himself a summer job at the Riverboat Inn. This came as a bit of a surprise to the rest of his fellow demons, as infernal folk generally did not do well in customer service jobs, preferring instead to make a living in the computer industry where their particular talent for tormenting mortals to distraction were richly rewarded (who do you think came up with the Microsoft paper-clip?) .

Harold, however, knew that many famous film stars drank at the inn and he was an avid follower of Lolita LaChaise, rising young starlet and heroine of the cult movie Invisible Candle. Sure enough, in she came one night.

Harold plastered on his friendliest smile.

"And what can I get for Madame tonight?" he asked.
"I'd give my very soul for a properly mixed vodka martini" she purred.

Harold's grin widened...
