Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath

Like Tinker Bell, six year old Belinda only had room in her heart for one emotion at a time. So when her parents sent her to her room without dessert because she did not eat all of her vegetables, she wrought destruction on her belongings.

She yanked at her curtains until they fluttered to the ground. She smashed her mirror and threw all her books on the floor. She stomped on her dolls and threw her collection of boxes at the walls. She screamed in rage.

Her parents were furious. She would not get dessert for a very long time.

    AWESOME! I love that you show wrath with a child’s temper-tantrum. That’s just perfect, and the comparison to Tinkerbell and only having one emotion at a time… Very awesome. This one was just fun to read, and totally easy to understand both from having been a child and seen children make a fuss. Awesome.

    Loved this read! Temper-tantrums are classic cases of wrath. Of course, I wouldn’t know on a personal basis, seeing as how I never threw one.

    Great job!

    Ahh, the old temper tantrum and still not getting what you want. Loved this, so innocent, yet furious!
