Seven Steps to Hell: The First Step.
Genre: Basically smut; 7 Deadly Sins!AU
Word Count: 2.5K
Notes: Very honestly, I have no idea what this is. There’s a plot that links all 7 parts together, but they can be read as standalones too, so no worries :)
If you haven’t already, though, you should probably read the Prologue since it might sound a little confusing otherwise. Otherwise, please enjoy reading this!
Edit: Amazing moodboard below submitted by @saf0607 (thank you!)
“Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us, but we can’t strike them all by ourselves.” - Laura Esquivel
“You know what you must do.”
The voice resounds through the chambers, a rich baritone causing the stone pillars to shake and tremble from its power. You say nothing, knowing that there is more.
“I would say I’m sorry to make you do this,” There’s a pause, then a chuckle, that makes your hair stand up, “But since I’d hate to get my hands dirty, I’m not.”
“Is there anything else?” You snap out finally, tired of the games, “Or may I begin?”
“By all means.” Eyes as dark as the night flash coppery red, “Just remember not to get too attached, Angel.”
“I think you underestimate me.” Not a single doubt festers in your mind, as you turn around, meeting the gaze of the Ruler of the Damned, the Devil, himself, “They are my sins after all, Lucifer.”
