The Next ???? Words…

When I planned the 7 days of deadly sins prompt, it was with the intention of releasing the next 500 words of my book on the Friday that corresponded with “lust”. I was just prepping the post and think maybe I should post 1000+ words instead. I don’t know yet. Either way, check back in! Please note, while I suppose the next passage could stand alone, it really makes a lot more sense if you’ve read The First 1100 Words. I’ve had great feedback so far, so I do hope you’ll give it a look!

The book is intended to be enjoyed by adults, please 18+ only.

Many of the characters in this book are cons or criminals. They use profane language. There are some drug references. Violence should be expected. It contains sexual situations. Remember, I chose to align “lust” with this next passage in particular. It is not excessively graphic but it is the most adult post I’ve made here yet.

7 Deadly Sins ~ Day 5, Envy

I felt like I should preface this crazy little acrostic poem by saying that yes, it is written in first person. No, it is not based on any sort of reality. For all of my faults, jealousy is not one of them. It used to be, but that was before I knew that men like my husband do exist. I trust him wholeheartedly so I do not succumb to envy any more.

A green-eyed monster has possessed me.
Jealous on a snooping spree.
Woman on a mission.
Does she think she’s opposition?
Better get this right.
Research his phone all night. I’m smarter
Than the both of them.
The house is in a state of mayhem.
Federal cases have been tried with less. In his
Bureau I found her dress.
Of course his honor he will defend, but this
Investigation spells the end.
