Third day of the 7 sins, 7 stories, 7 days Flash fiction challenge and as such I have made this story of Greed in 3rd person.
Ants. The cars and people below all look like bugs no bigger than her pinky. She could squash them all but only a few sacrifices are necessary. Removing a paper from her briefcase a smile turns wickedly at the corner of her mouth. Her eyes gloss over with determination as she fingers the floor plans of the office above her; tracing the lines with her nails. He’s been with the company for years but that hasn’t stopped her before. She turns around, excitement coursing through whole body, as he knocks at the door. They won’t even know he’s gone.
(100 words exactly, including the title word: Greed)
So we are almost half way through the seven sins, I had a bit of trouble thinking of what to write without going completely cliche and over the top with the idea premise of Greed. Hopefully it came across alright.
Greed marks the end of the Sins of Excess. Too much of anything is a bad thing, always in moderate proportions.
One glass of red wine is heart healthy, too much more is liver deadly. Or so I am told.

Aww, and to some of you slackers out there. You may be 300 words behind but I expect you to catch up pronto because I would hate to find out that you were the one that created the 8th deadly sin!
