Part I: Sloth meets Gluttony
<Excerpt of Sloth and Gluttony Conversation>
Sloth ask Gluttony, “Why are you always hungry? Wouldn’t you feel more relieved that you sleep away your life without always eating? What purpose do you have from eating so much?”
“I should be asking you the same question. Why do you move so slow? Why do you sleep so much?” Gluttony rolled his eyes at Sloth for asking the same question that she always nagged him about for millennium.
“That my fat friend is a beauty of it all. I am never in a hurry.” She haughtily replied.
Gluttony snorted. “You’re just slow and sleepy because you have no purpose in your life.”
Sloth glared at Gluttony. She gave him an angry reply not liking what Sloth had said. “Well then for you fatty, the reason that you are always hungry is because your afraid that you’ll starve to death to fill up the void called emotions. It’s just another escape goat for you so that you can cover yourself up with lies.”
Gluttony sighed and shook his head. “Touche.” He shrugged his shoulder, not caring so much about what she had said. “You know just as well as I that you and I fit well with one another. Even if you slash me with harsh words, your words don’t harm me.”
“Is that a problem?”
“Then why don’t we go back to doing what we do best.”
“Absolutely, my kind of gal.” Gluttony winked. He once again picked up the large amount of food that he had kept in his hand the whole time and began stuffing himself silly. Sloth couldn’t help herself, but roll her eyes at him. She wasn’t the type to get hungry, seeing him stuff his face made her stomach queasy. How was he even able to fill himself so much without ever being sick? Where does it all go? That was a mystery in itself that she could never answer.
“Seriously, do you like what you have become?” She asked once again, he couldn’t help but stop eating and stare at her with a confused expression.
Gluttony wasn’t pleased that he was stopped from eating his usual meal, instead he was peeved that he was interrupted. “That depends.”
“Why not change?”
“Because this is what I am good at.” He stare at her strangely at the words that she had said. This was the first time he had ever heard her say something different that made him wonder if she was sane in the mind. They have been living such life since the beginning of time. Why change now?
“I beg to differ.” She scoffed at his answer and yawned. She was getting sleepy just talking to him. In actuality, she felt tired from even thinking in the first place. What caused her to think such thought was a complete foreign element in itself, she just didn’t understand where it even came from.
“Then why don’t you?” He wagged the piece of chicken thigh that he was just eating in front of her face.
“Same reason, I just like to laze around.”
“Then why ask?” He couldn’t understand her train of thought, it was just too strange, completely unlike her.
“I don’t know. It’s just have always been in the back of my mind.”
Sloth gave up. She didn’t want to even venture the thought any further, it was just to tiring, to time consuming, when she could use such leisure time to laze and sleep. That was what she did best, and asking anymore than that was pure waste of time. To stay in her tip top condition, she needed her beauty sleep. Let it be the whole day, a year, a century, or even a thousand years, she didn’t mind it at all. It actually gave her the pale skin that never got even a chance to be burnt underneath the sun, the thin arms, and even the long hair that she liked.
On the other hand, she grimaced as she look at gluttony. He had the nasty slimey boils and acnes on his face and covering all of his body, greasy hair, and smelly body odor that made her want to puke at times. Though what was surprising was that he was quite lean for someone who constantly ate, never stopping as if he was inhaling air itself. Even wondering about where all the food went in his stomach was a pain to think about, she quickly threw such thought out the window. It just was too much of a pain to think about at all.
“Good night, Gluttony.”
“Going so soon? Are you sure you don’t want to fill your stomach up before you go to sleep?”
“No, It’s too much of a pain to eat.”
“More for me.” Gluttony greedily ate, stuffing himself silly.
“I’ll talk to you again in another hundred years maybe…if I feel like it.” With a yawn, Sloth started to go to sleep. Her eyes were slowly shutting, and she knew that sleep was only a second away.
“Good night, Sloth. I expect to hear your reason next time.” He bite into another chicken thigh, even eating the bone itself without a second thought. A horrible bone crunching sound could be heard, while Sloth closed her eyes.
“I wish you a good dream.”
“You know as well a I that I don’t dream.”
