Gluttony, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Some acknowledge it as the deadly sin of them all. Other think of it as one of the easiest to overcome and endure. It all depends on just how far the sin as taken over the person’s entire being, the body, soul, and mind. As for The King, his gluttonous ways drove him to become who he his now.
Day after day, every waking hour, he was at the dining table, gorging himself with food. He paid no mind to the welfare and needs of the townsfolk outside. The Queen took over to the best of her ability while he ate, but she could only do so much. His personal servants cowered in fear, forced to bring more food to him or fear the threat of public execution.
Matilda saw The King’s rapid growth, and knew this wasn’t going to end well.
Zoraya began to sweat as she was constantly bringing back more food from the kitchen every couple of minutes. The hinges on the double doors began to squeak as they’ve never been used so much so quickly. But even though The King’s gluttony was his own, everybody was affected.
“More! I am not satisfied!” The King roared with food in his mouth.
Panting and barely able to catch her breath, Zoraya was already on her way out of the kitchen. Before she was able to put the next platter down, Matilda grabbed her shoulder.
“Stop. We will feed no longer.”
