100 Odd Words: The Confession of Sebastian James

“Forgive me, father, for I have sinned.  My last confession was three months ago.  I have committed a mortal sin, but I did it to preserve the life of the one I desire, the safety of this world and my own life.”

From behind the screen there was a sigh.  Sebastian recognized it.  It was Father Harrison, who usually took confession around this time.  It was safe to tell him everything; he had been red cord bound for years after witnessing someone flying.

Father Harrison finally spoke.  His voice was weary.  “Tell me, Sebastian, who have you killed this time?”
