The Octopus Lady Reads a Book
there once was a girl born with eight legs, one for each of her mother’s sins. there was one for lust and one for gluttony, one for anger and one for envy, one for pride, one for greed and even one for sloth. the eight leg, you ask? oh, it was simply for the sin of being born.
the girl with eight legs grew up and became a lady with eight legs. she liked to sit and think of stories of people so unlike herself. people who had a more fitting amount of legs, say four. even two, some lucky bastards. but she was born with eight and her burden was to bear them.
until she saw a book. and then her burden became a blessing, as her world started to shift and the sins started to slowly become virtues.
This was the fastest editing I have ever done. my computer decided to die three days ago and I only got a new one today — I spent my afternoon trying to set everything up in order to post, including photoshop, and that resulted in a slightly… rushed processing. Still. Oh well. The Octopus lady is here. :)
