Seven Deadly Sins: Sloth

The mental to-do list was as long as her arm, but the sunshine was warm on her body. A clean rag hung over her face, deflecting the strongest of the rays. The hammock supporting her slim frame swayed in the wind.

The dwarves had heigh-hoe’d off to work earlier this morning, and left the house in a right state. The dishes were stacked a foot high, last night’s dinner cold on the stove. The washing was in a messy pile, the broom collecting dust in the corner.

Her eyes slowly drooped closed.

“Not today,” Snow White muttered. “Can’t be arsed.”
