A trail of light - Freewrite - Short story

in fiction •  2 months ago  (edited)


Darkened, my reasoning had become so cold that I could see that I was losing my true self in the process and had gained a shadow in my eyes. I never imagined that hatred would be so bitter and toxic.

I saw Andy so helpless from my reserved front-row seat and no longer enjoyed it, I felt that something had frozen inside of me. A rebellious winter was hijacking my soul because this vile act I would celebrate like good. If I did not reverse this, I would lose my essence.

"Your soul for a coffee mug" - I thought I heard through the cracks in my altered mind. I imagined an evil entity that was moving me to lose what little innocence was left inside me.

(End of five minutes)

A hot coffee mug would really ease my soul and the pressure of my vengeful instinct. But how can I return good for evil? I was ready to give up?

A trail of light moved across the stage in the conference room. It was as if an angel and a demon were fighting for a soul: mine!

Cuán dificil es manejar los sentimientos encontrados. El bien y el mal, el amor y el odio, el perdón y la venganza.

The duality that accompanies us sometimes makes our mind wobble and makes us reflect on instinctive behaviors that should be checked in cold blood. Passion is like a wolf that nests good and evil, the wolf that we feed the most is the one that will prevail.

Interesting... keep it up!

Thank you, @alixander!
