Hell Yeah!


Photo prompt courtesy Roger Bultot

“This is our special Banker’s Package, ” said our guide,” I hope it’s to your satisfaction.”

I looked at the plush hall and the collection of art by Picasso, Da Vinci, Rembrandt et al, and said, “It better be, I’m paying through my nose for it, but what about the more… erm… earthly pleasures?”

He discreetly pressed a button and the huge glass skylight slid open, and a host of nubile nymphets floated down gently.

“I’ll take it,” I blurted out in excitement, “what are you calling it, by the way?”

He smiled as he said, “The Tenth Circle.”

    Is possibility of accessing this banker’s package? How much are you paying? Nice story.

  2. draliman says:

    I’m thinking the “Tenth Circle” is referring to yet another circle of Hell under the Ninth? If so, it doesn’t sound so bad 🙂

  3. Iain Kelly says:

    Some bankers will definitely end up here, but it sounds like they managed to land on their feet again! They always seem to get away with it!

  4. Eek! Dante’s Inferno? Great take on the photo prompt. 🙂

    Dante’s Inferno came to my mind too. A well-narrated story, Anurag.

    • Thank you so much Piyali. It is the inferno, but like everything else, bankers have managed to get special treatment here too, by buying their way into a new circle, made only for them.

  6. James McEwan says:

    Sounds like hell, all those nubile nymphets floating about, the noise.

  7. If the banks got ahold of hell do you think they’d still hold me to my student loans? Haha

  8. Oh my … a haunting bit of a story just in time for Halloween; although,
    you probably didn’t intend it to be read like that. I enjoyed the mystery
    of what was coming next.

    sounds interesting. does buyer’s remorse apply here just in case? :).

  10. StuHN says:

    Methinks he is looking at the 10th circle with rose colored glasses.

  11. Dale says:

    If it looks too good to be true…

  12. They always land on their feet! Hopefully the devil won’t let them have it that easy for long 😉

  13. granonine says:

    tenth circle—no, I don’t think it’s worth it!

  14. I hope he gets his come-up-ins. MEN!

  15. Dear Anurag,

    After reading this, your title had me laughing out loud. Every man’s fantasy. (Of course I say that as woman. 😉 )

    Beware the nubile nymphet – she may not be all she seems. I am determined those bankers will not get away with it ever.

  17. Isn’t the tenth circle a whirlwind tossing you around with other nude bodies… never trust a bank like that.
