'Envy is like a teacher. A bad teacher. It teaches us everything yet tells us to sift through everything to find the important stuff even if some methods are inefficient.'
The demons went and gone as soon as the story had finished while the devils whistled from the corners at the 7 embodiment of sins' intelligence.
A Burning Soul was ordered for the 7 Sins who drank it without a sweat, the old man was pleased with the gentle yet mellow flavor and appreciated the intoxicating screams. He observed the crowd carefully.
"Aha! I finally get it."
"Don't you see! Christian was actually Pride, Ayesha was Sloth, Dean was Envy and -"
"Hold up bud! I know demons ain't got that much inside their head but you seriously didn't think that through, did you?"
"Wait... you mean that wasn't it."
The demon sighed at his brash judgement while the devil was currently giving him a lecture on the major sin the story told.
This was an enjoyable sight for the 7 Sins who lazed around waiting for any signals to continue his next story but contemplated his story for the nth time.
His story actually skipped out a lot of parts as he couldn't shamelessly tell them of certain times in his life as well as some of the more humiliating moments.
It was quite an emotional time when he first appeared here as this was the first time he had ever experienced emotions. Such a shocking revelation made his memories hazy but he was able to at least finally identify that black rectangle.
Although the 7 Sins was able to recall that memory, there was nothing.
Asking some of the higher up demons such as Satan would be the equivalent of courting death while Belphegor was obviously too busy tempting humans, leaving the 7 Sins to search for 'Hermes' himself.
That man was probably lying or scheming something as there was no scriptures referring to a man in purple named, Hermes.
Whether the existence of his creator was known, the 7 Sins would unfortunately never know.
This first life had accidentally scarred the 7 Sins idea of what a family should be, especially larger ones that might be named Clans. Another poor learning experience was that cultivation and magic existed everywhere.
The reason the 7 Sins was able to learn of that recently was because his second life was quite pitiful.
Family had a much more alluring charm to it at that point while a thing called 'Science' was able to instill fear into him.
Flying metal plates that could completely destroy buildings and big metal horses were able to crush insignificant lives. If cultivation and magic was added to that world... the 7 Sins felt a little scared at such a thought as cultivating there would sound like hell... something worse than hell.
Every once in a while, there would be the sound of laughter from the younger children
"Dad! I finally got a contract signed!"
"Hmm, let me see son. Nice, pieces of paper for a soul"
The dad would pat the spiky head of the child which was an amusing sight for the 7 Sins but this made him wonder about the experience of the 7 Virtues.
There was a very general formula on how Demons and Devils acted.
One supreme rule was that they prioritize themselves first, which is usually seen as selfishness but it was more based on the idea that we regard freedom as the reason for what we live for.
To live for a joyous day is better than living a lifetime of regret.
It was always a beautiful sight that most of the times, everyone would be honest with how they expressed their emotions except the sly devils.
But that comes at a cost...
In order for you to express yourself honestly, it may intercept with another's judgement which will lead to conflict.
The only way to live a happy life was the one who had the strongest fist... or for the devils, the one that utilizes the strongest fist.
If one were to stem it to the very basics of our ancient ancestors, survival of the fittest.
The weak fight for scraps while the strong are able to be rampant.
It was not the perfect method to utilize the mass but it was indeed a type of method that still allows this society to live freely. The alcohol was starting to get to his head as the 7 Sins started throwing random glances everywhere while having a shaky hand.
Fear should be casted away and one should respond in a suitable manner.
Placing the current drink down, the 7 Sins turned to face the crowd once more while beginning the next story.
One full of the best moments within his 7 lives he had currently lived.
"I will now tell the next story..."
"STOP LET ME GO!"
The boy tried to struggle but his attempts was void of any action, looking like a fish on land who could barely move an inch. On closer inspection, his hands and legs were tied to a soft and comfy bed with a recently cleaned bed sheet.
"Shhhhh, you wouldn't want to wake your sister? Now, would you?"
There was a slightly alluring and gentle voice that reached the boy but he unfortunately couldn't see as he was blindfolded. An unpleasant sensation ran down his chest that slowly reached his head before another whisper was added.
"Don't forget to say cheese"
His body felt cold but the only warmth he was able to feel was the contact from another human and a wet slimy sensation. Another cold breeze soon followed in a seductive tone "Relax a little, we need to make sure that this commemoration will be memorable"
The blindfold was now taken off but the girl made sure to place a gag inside the boy's mouth instead
"I think I like you more when you're quieter"
She couldn't help but blush when saying that line but the boy was much more scared and started thrusting the air to try and create some noise so that someone might notice and help him.
Looking at the boy on the brink of desperation she lightly laughed with her hand in front of her mouth to cover her teeth in an attempt to show some sort of shyness "Hehe, you're so excited already?"
How to phrase this without spoiling... there may be a few 18+ scenes here and there for the next sin.
Anybody at a young age, I recommend you avert your eyes. But hey, I'm just a guy on the internet that puts words together.
