Tuesday’s Word

Nephilim

Sloth
noun
1. Apathy and inactivity in the practice of virtue (personified as one of the deadly sins)
2. Any of several slow-moving arboreal mammals of South America and Central America; they hang from branches back downward and feed on leaves and fruits
3. A disinclination to work or exert yourself

   Though a cold January night, a crowd surged down the street. Frosty puffs of breath swirled around the people hurrying to nightclubs and bars ready to get drunk or laid. Their eagerness and desperation perfumed the chilly air.
   Sloth, the angel thought. Absolute sloth. Why isn’t anything done about it?
   But he wasn’t here to worry over these sweating, sinning mortals. There had been a breach of gigantic proportions. If it didn’t get fixed, they would all pay.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
