Bless me Father for I have sinned,
It has been [an unmentionable amount of time] since my last confession. This week I have spent time with all seven of the deadly sins and I am ashamed to say I've enjoyed it thoroughly. It's all that Lady Antimony's fault. She started it. She's a bad influence, I tell you. It's not just me that did it, all these other people did too:
Bryce Daniels, Halli Gomez, Rebecca Clare Smith, Braindaze, Glitterword, Rosie Lane, Heather M Gardner, David A Ludwig, Jeffrey Hollar, Surfing (also known as Faith), Zade Forrest, The Gorm, Jessica and not forgetting Lady Antimony herself. And then some (if I missed you, tell me).
You should read theirs, they're REALLY wicked.
But as for me, I'm done with sin. Well except for today. It's the last day after all and I'm not quite done with sinning yet. Nearly, but not quite. Until midnight tonight I'm all about...
“You sold my soul to the devil?”
She glances through a veil of dark silk, mysterious as midnight. “Yep.”
“My soul. Not yours.” Her skin is marzipan smooth, lickable. I reach out with trembling fingers, but the TV cackles. Jerking back, I flush. “Can you even do that?”
Plump lips spread in a luscious smile. She nods, hair falling across full breasts.
“And was it worth it?” I am shaking, sweat beading my skin. The air is heavy with sulphur. Clip clop. Hooves outside the room, the whisk of pointed tail. “What do you get to have?”
Now seven Hail Marys folks and a life of unstained virtue.
I hope you've enjoyed the #7Sins Blog Challenge and all the excellent flashes of fiction that it's spawned across a whole range of different writers. We have poetry, we have cats, we have murder and we have mayhem. Not to mention lemon tart and werewolves. Check them out at the links above.
And with big thanks to Lady Antimony for coming up with the idea and kicking it all off. Cheers Your Ladyship, you're a star!
