This is the last of the 7 deadly sins flash fiction installment… But don’t think that is the last of the challenge my friends. Keep your eye’s peeled for next month’s challenge of the 7 virtues.
He moves the girl’s fingers flexing them in and out feeling the ache of her bones with each movement.
“I did it!” He exclaims through his vessel’s voice.
“You think you did this on your own, my boy?” The voice echoes in his mind.
“Who do you think you are?” Micha looks around the room curiously.
“I am hurt you don’t recognize my voice.” The laugh haunts his thoughts, “My boy, so righteous.”
Micha rolls the girl’s tongue feeling the ash crumble on the roof of her mouth.
“Possessing a body, did you think that was your angelic half?”
This is a peice based from the story Torn that I am working on posted to bookcountry. Micha, a demi-angel, continues to struggle with his building sins, and the realization that he has more than one father and he may not be human…
This was the toughest sin for me to work with because it was a challege to think of which way to think of the sin. I could have used vanity, the love of self. Which I kind of did here with Micha thinking he accomplished a possession on his own, couldn’t have been the fact that the human was willing or the help of this unknown voice… of course not. Pride that it was him and him alone that accomplishes things without all the little people along the way.
Everyone needs a little pride and greed to have ambition or drive; the key is to know the line and teeter not fall.
