Edge of Thorns 4 - Pt 3Part 3
I need to at least be honest about Gula, and maybe I should tell them I know about Alton too. But since they're worried about how I'll handle things, I think I'll play ignorant otherwise.
Nathan took a deep breath and nodded. "At least, I think I do," he said first. "Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think she's one of the Seven Deadly Sins, specifically Gluttony."
Enya snorted and laughed, shaking her head, though her brother smiled and nodded.
"Don't know how you figured that one out, but you're on the nose. We'd only gotten so far as figuring out she was the manifestation of a Sin."
"He knows Latin, doofus," his twin reminded him with a nudge. "I bet her name gives it away."
Nathan couldn't help but chuckle a bit. "Well, it is the Latin word for appetite."
"We should have thought to look that up," Scott mumbled, starting to laugh too. "Anyway, we haven't quite finished assessing her threat level yet, but that does help with our notes."

New day. Clean slate. Time to get this game rolling.
Nathan couldn't stand to be idle, and the forced vacation left him with way more free time on his hands than he would have liked. Not that he didn't agree wholeheartedly with his manager's decision; in this reset, he was recovering from a pretty bad head injury. But Nathan knew better.

Scott had also warned him that his actual reporting might be a little more limited when he got back, not by any fault of his own, but because everyone was a lot more cautious since the Black Friday incident. It was very unusual, and it had the whole
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it.
