Devils are not real

I took inventory of Saskia's beliefs recently. I asked her to answer 'real' or 'not real' to various characters and she enthusiastically complied.

"Santa?" I suggested.

"Not real!" Said with seven-year-old pride.

"Easter bunny?"

"Not real!"

"Jesus?" 

"Real."

"Tooth fairy?" 

"Not real." (A surprise to me, this was followed by a brief discussion to identify my underminer. Pete.)

"Monsters?"

"Not real."

"Giant whales in the sea?" 

"Real." (What about dolphins, interjected Leif. Are they real?)

"Fairies?" 

"Not real." Said regretfully.

"Angels?" 

"Real." In a soft voice, utterly convinced.

"Devils?" 

"Not real." Said with equal conviction, laughing at the ridiculousness of the idea. "Let's do more!" she urged.

But I was too moved by the last two answers to continue.
