Lady Antimony is hosting a week-long Repentance: The Seven Virtues flash fiction challenge.
The premise of the challenge is as follows:
Seven Flash Fictions up to 100 words
Starting August 7.
I cannot refuse this Disney themed Seven Virtues artwork from http://pat7.deviantart.com.
The Seven Virtues are not as easily defined as the Seven Deadly Sins. Each virtue has a host of different meanings. So with my Seven Virtues, I’ll be defining which particular aspect of that Virtue I’m following.
Today is Patience: Forbearance and endurance through moderation.
Perhaps if I were to wait for her, she could once more be mine. I could outlive anyone on the strength of my love for her. My love would drive me to live beyond my own natural years, in an effort to once more stand by her side. If I could outlive her suitor, I could once more claim her. She would come to me willingly, if I had the ability. If I could bear watching them together. If it was a sure thing, I would wait forever. I had faith in her. It was him I wasn’t so sure about.
To be continued…
