Seven

The handsome young man looked at the scene and tears streaked down his face.

He had never wanted this to happen, but his Lust for her had been too strong.

Whenever he had seen her showering her affections on them, a jolt of Envy had run through his body, and he had felt as if his heart would burst with the tension.

He had tried to persuade them to leave peacefully, but they just wouldn’t get the hint.

And so, it had come to this.

It HAD to.

They took great Pride in their loyalty, but at the end of the day, they had no option but to surrender to their Greed.

He could have rained his Wrath upon them in myriad forms, but it was much simpler to let their Gluttony do the deed for him.

No one was immune to the charms of Sloth after all.

And so, they came for a free lunch buffet…and became lunch themselves.

Now, with the seven dwarfs out of the picture, Prince Charming would finally have Snow White all to himself.

    Excellent use of the seven deadly sins and the seven dwarfs in unison. Hope Prince Charming can make Snow White seven times as happy as she ever was with the seven dwarfs….

    Did he kill them with love or by feeding them poisonous food?
