Where Fascinating Women Come From

When the Devil took human form in Skye he had horns and claws but no tail. . . . My mother was told by an old man in Skye that the reason the Devil had no tail was because God took it to make women from it. Adam's rim made the good women and the Devil's tail the fascinating ones.
