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.
Matilda pushed the pill as far as she could into the hunk of meat on the plate, using her finger to make sure the pill didn’t fall out. She stood at the doors, taking a deep breath before announcing herself.
“Next plate is coming, My Lord.”
As Matilda approached the dining table, The King came up for air from his plate, glared at Matilda, and snatched the plate out of her hand. He wasn’t halfway finished with his first plate before he devoured the hunk of meat Matilda brought.
Matilda took one more heavy sigh, The King’s fate now sealed.
