I taught Don Juan Everything...

You don’t often get a demon like me. “Jasfoup?” I’m often asked. “How did you come by your prowess in the bedchamber?

I’m liable to smile and shake my head. Modesty, contrary to popular opinion, is not a virtue. Since it’s designed to draw even more attention to oneself, it’s practically a sin.

“Practice,” I’ll say if pressed. “I’ve had five hundred years of practice, including a stint of being Warden of the Succubae. I studded all of them in the half-century of working there.

Of course, they don’t believe me and that just gives me all the more practice.
