Price of Sin- #Flashfiction

The angels sat around in a grumpy circle. Brows drawn, wings askew in petulant annoyance, they churlishly bickered over who would tell Him.

In He walked and saw their orb of downcast faces. What ails you all? he asked in surprise.

Dennis sinned, blurted out Ariel.

Dennis and Edna sinned, corrected Duma.

God smiled, They are but children. Let them be.They must be repenting it by now.

But, Haniel, the guardian angel of the Tree of Life, couldn’t take it anymore.

It was all that Eve’s fault, he spluttered. That mad woman!

God benevolently replied, ‘Mad as Adam’.
