Sinful Flash Fiction: Sloth

Seven days…
Seven deadly sins…

Sloth

Sensual and sweet.

He closed his eyes, still hearing their stopped music in his befuddled mind.

They’d been singing to him. It had been the most glorious sound, dragging his limbs onto the beach and sending them to sleep as the waves lapped over his ankles.

A drowsy smile washed his sleep tainted lips.

His body, drugged by melody, felt nothing of what they were doing. His mind tried to rouse him, yet the dream was too delicious.

But that was what they wanted.

His scarlet blood mingled with salt water, swirling and eddying as the mermaids ate their fill.


This post is part of the Seven Days, Seven Deadly Sins Blog Challenge started by the lovely Lady Antimony of the blog Thoughts, Musings and Broken Promises.

Are your sins this devouring…?

  1. Wow, I like the sirens singing him to sleep and eating him. I usually associate sirens with evoking lust, but doing sloth instead and making their song a lullaby is very refreshing. I like it.

  2. Thank you so much for all of the feedback. I must admit I really enjoyed this challenge even though I'm used to a much bigger word count and I'm so glad that I seem to have done it justice. =)
