Day four of Lady Antimony's #7Sins blog challenge and I bring you... GLUTTONY!
He died from eating jelly babies. Ten thousand jelly babies, crammed into one squirming, gelatinous, sugar-dusted nursery of a stomach. Blunt, blank faces and round heads, jostling for space in his over-crowded stomach. They said his blood sugar levels were insane; that they found him lying in a pool of syrupy drool outside the cornershop.
Lucifer poked him, his trident leaving dents in the smooth, white flesh. A tormented moan escaped his new soul’s grey lips. Luc grinned. The poor sod’s mind was replaying his last living moment; the bright glare of the shop sign above him: Sweet Temptation.
It's funny where inspiration comes from. Sometimes I have a character in mind, sometimes a plot twist. With this short piece, I had the description of jelly babies humming in my head and I really wanted to use it.
