The stress of moving to a new city had been getting to her.
She needed an outlet.
"Maybe it would help if I started smoking," she mused aloud, "But I shouldn't."
"Really?", asked her best friend. He moved his half-smoked cigarette towards her mouth temptingly.
"Screw devil's advocate, call me...Satan"
She looked doubtfully at the stub in his fingers
As the smoke blew out of her mouth, she could have sworn she saw his eyes glint red...

ReLAX. I haven't started smoking. Not happening anytime soon. But the devil's advocate line was pulled on me. By Satan, hah.

These ppl all lie, mystique. Smoking is good. Very good. You die early. You get good breath till death. It causes mutation in cell. Activates oncogenes. You get cancer.
Hmmm... Life is beautiful with smoke.
