Pride, the otherside of virtue.
I took the route of selflessness, not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less.
“I am meant to be here.” Jadyn places a foot in the room tentatively as if to test its sturdiness. The strength of the engraved floor will hold her but it is her own strength she prays for now as she moves forward. “Please God give me strength,” she thinks, “The blood, all of this blood, how can he live through this? I am coming, please hold on.”
“I can not join you.” Raphael’s voice echoes softly.
“I know.” She closes her eyes again to walk through the slow-seeping-crimson-waterfall. No angel dares enter expecting to return.
That’s it for the 7 virtues, 7 stories, 7 days challenge… (don’t worry, I hear Lady Antimony has come up with some new scheme to keep me busy.)
Want more, take a look at the rest of the participants using hash #7virtues on twitter or at ladyantimony’s blog.
