Summary Sandrino was so handsome that when he passed by, people turned their heads to look at him. But the fact that he was beautiful was more of a curse than a blessing because every woman who laid eyes on him fell instantly in love. Annoyed with his good looks, he vowed that he would make a pact with the Devil if only he could be not so attractive. The Devil appeared and the bargain was struck
