Sinful Flash Fiction: Greed

Seven days…
Seven deadly sins…

Greed

Her eyes glowed red between the boulders.

His fingers bled as he moved the rocks, sharp edges cutting his precious flesh. His mind was on the prize.

She’d told him she was a Djinni.

The promise of power and riches had convinced him to toil endlessly to free her. Finally done, he peered inside, expecting his gold.

But there was only her.

She stepped forward, fanning herself with a fistful of notes. He lunged for them with outstretched hands, but it was already too late.

Her fingers caught his throat, dragging him in so she could devour his sinful soul.


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.

  1. Oh, wow. You are VICIOUS in describing the repercussions of sin. And I am LOVING it. Absolutely delicious!
    It's been a pleasure meeting you through the challenge and following your work!

    Best-

  2. So… Was it a djinni? Or was it a devil or other fiend? Eitherway, I love the immediate and unforeseen (by the character) consequences. I've especially loved reading about a different fantastic entity in each of your Sinful Flashes. Fantasy's really my thing, and you handle it masterfully.

  3. It's been a really tough week for me so thanks to all of you for your heart warming comments on my work. To those participating in the challenge, I've really enjoyed reading through your pieces and I'm glad Antimony's challenge brought us together. I look forward to reading all of your work in the future.
