Adaen: Sin. There are Seven Deadly Sins. Sloth, Lust, Pride, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, and Envy. Those are the big ones, the ones none of us can escape. We all fall victim to them at one time or another. The easiest to fall to...

"Adaen. Honey, don't you think you need to get up?" Mom said, standing at the door.

I grunted.

"Oh come on." Hope said, coming over and snatching the cover off me, "You've been up here for about two weeks!"

"Thanks, I know that." I frowned, pulling the covers back over me.


"Leave." I said angrily.

Hope and mom looked at each other before leaving.


Chapter 44: Vice City

Adaen: It's debatable. It's different for different people. There was a lot of sin going on around my town. Whereas I had succumbed to sloth, Kendall had succumbed to a whole different sin...

Kendall sat in her room, on her computer. She had been at the hospital a lot with Hannah and had neglected everything else. Well, that wasn't true. She just wanted to get out of her house and away from her shiny new sister-in-law, who she'd frenched. It didn't make sense, though. She had never really thought of herself as gay or bi. She never thought of herself like that, but she couldn't deny that it felt pretty good. Too bad she was a total slut. Her sister-in-law, not her...well, not her anymore.

"Sup, sis." Janet said, walking into her room.

Kendall looked at her quickly and back at her computer.

"Awww, you're not getting shy on me now, are you?" Janet said, sitting on the bed beside her, "Or are you watching porn?"

"I don't watch porn." Kendall said quickly.

"What? Everybody watches porn!" Janet frowned, "Where do you think people who have good sex learn from?"

Kendall chuckled.

"See, I may be a bitch, but I'm a funny one." Janet smirked, "You've got your panties all in a bunch because I kissed you."

"My panties are not in a bunch." Kendall hissed.

"It was just a kiss." Janet said, "You were looking so cute sitting on a washing machine..."

"You don't find it a little weird?" Kendall asked.

"I married your brother. I didn't pledge myself to him." Janet said. She took a minute, "Or, maybe I did...but being tied to one guy..."

"Then why'd you marry my brother?" Kendall asked.

"He gave me good sex, he has a lot of money, and I was drunk." Janet shrugged, "It was win-win."

"That's the only reasons?"

"Those are good reasons." Janet chuckled.

Kendall rolled her eyes.

"Besides, I'm not holding out for a hero." Janet frowned, "That's for virgins."

"You don't think there's someone special out there for you?" Kendall asked.

Janet shook her head, "Not really, I mean, there's opportunities. Sometime you just have to take them."

"Like marrying a rich guy?" Kendall asked.

"Like kissing a cutie." Janet said, standing, "So long, sis." She said, walking out.

Kendall was concerned and flattered at the same time. It was flattering to have someone treat her as an opportunity rather than...well, anything else.


Adaen: Pride...anyone can catch pride and anyone could make miscalculate their plans because of it. Anyone.

"So, what do we have?" Ryan asked.

"Nothing, he's pretty clean." Leslie said, "Which is annoying. You guys couldn't have saved the gay thing?"

"So, we're really doing this?" Davis asked.

"You've been hurt by him too. First with Marco, then with everybody else." Ryan said, "It's okay to say that he hurt you."

"I'm not denying it." Davis said, "But so have all my friends at one point."

"He's not your friend!" Leslie spat, "Not when it doesn't serve his own purpose."

"You're trying to make him worse than what he is." Davis frowned.

"No, we're really not." Ryan said quickly.

"You're intentionally trying to hurt him." Davis said, "I might have been pissed at him but I don't want to hurt the guy."

"It's the only way to teach him his lesson." Ryan frowned.

"To hurt him?" Davis asked.

"To show his true self to people." Leslie frowned, "He killed my brother. And he didn't get anything but a slap on the wrist, if that."

"That wasn't his fault."

"Whose side are you on, exactly?" Ryan asked.

"I'm just sayin..." Davis frowned.

"We're gonna nail this dick to the wall and when we do, you're either going to be in our way or with us." Leslie said angrily, "Make a choice."

"What are you going to do?" Davis asked.

"We're going to start a rumor." Leslie smiled.


Adaen: Greed...something about greed seeps into all of us. The darkest always fall to greed. Even those in the light can't get enough light.

Marco just downed two very potent pills. He had taken pills from his parent's cabinet. He was working hard and going to school at the higher education center. But the stress from both of those had long since taken him. He had began taking drugs. Not hard stuff that would change his appearance, but enough to keep him high for the most part. He hadn't told anyone. He'd tried all kinds of drugs and had settled on painkillers. Marco had made a decision. He wanted it all. He was a writer and he needed to be high to write. He wanted to write it all.

"You called me?" I asked.

Marco smiled, "I did." He nodded.

"Make it quick, I'm definitely still on my pity party." I frowned.


I just stared at him.

"Does this have to do with the guy you were making out with at the party?" Marco smiled.

I was silent.

"You should come to the party I'm throwing." Marco said.

"No! Never going to a party again!" I frowned.

"Come on." Marco said, "What more do you have to lose?"

"Very true." I chuckled, "Can I tell you something?"


"You can't tell anyone." I said, "I'm trusting you with this."

He waited.

"Oz shot Harry." I said quickly.

Marco looked to be thinking it over.

"I know what you're going to say..."

"No, you don't! How could you sit on this secret?! Harry almost died! He's got to turn himself in." Marco said angrily.

"I don't think that's possible." I frowned, "It was an accident."

"I can't believe you would cover this." Marco said.

"I didn't. I just found out a while ago." I stood, "I didn't tell anybody because it wasn't my secret! I..."

"...Wanted to shield him but..."

"I liked him." I said loudly, "I did."

Marco looked at me, "Where is he?" he asked.

I looked away.

"No!" Marco said, "You're always telling people to do what's right."

"You think I don't know that!" I shouted, "I have been this town's moral compass forever and I couldn't even..."

Marco sighed, "You can't let him walk. He can't just run from this." Marco said, "You picked the wrong time to do what's not right."

I walked to the door, "I have never judged you. Never. I love you. For you to judge me is so far beyond anything I could ever conceive." I said quickly.

"I'm sorry. I just...you have to give me more time with this." Marco frowned, "You told me. I'm trying not to judge you, but you did something wrong. Do you understand that if this all gets out that you can be arrested?"

I nodded, "I didn't know until he was leaving." I frowned.

"You need to tell Hannah." Marco said.

"I know." I said.

Marco walked over and hugged me, "It's our secret for now." He smiled.

Outside the door, Davis was leaned in, listening intently.

Adaen: Sometimes, one man's greed can be another's wrath...


Adaen: I was in no hurry to be in a party setting and I wasn't in a partying mood at all. I stood looking around at all the people gyrating and the booze flowing and it made me smile. What made me smile even more was that some chick threw a drink on one of the douches from high school. These people were gluttons...

"I can't believe you came here." Eric said, "How can you even set foot at a party?"

"I can't believe someone got a drink thrown on them and it wasn't me." I smiled as across the bar.

"So, I told Kya earlier that I'm moving out of the house and in with Janet." Eric announced.

I was blown away, "Congratulations! I'm surprised." I smiled.

"You wouldn't happen to know where Oz is, do you? Janet's going crazy looking for him and he hasn't showed up. He's so fired." Eric asked.

I shook my head, "Nope. No clue."

"Well, have fun. You deserve to." Eric said, patting my shoulder and walking to the other end of the bar.

Across the room, I spotted Christina with a very sexy latino man. They looked to be having a lot of fun. I smiled and we acknowledged each other. I walked forward and saw Kendall sitting by herself. Before I could get to her, Davis appeared in front of me with Ryan.

"Hey look, it's Adaen." Ryan said, "Wow, you're always so plain...what's your secret?"

"Well, I'm continually channeling you. I mean, I applaud you. All the times you've been ran through, you still look so constipated." I smiled mischievously.

Davis chuckled a little.

"So, you two are together? I mean, can't be surprised. You have the basketball player and his worn out ball." I said.

"There's that biting wit." Ryan said.

"As fun this has been, and it's been an absolute riot, I've got other things to do." I said, walking away.

"That was brutal." Kendall said standing to greet me.

"I think I won, though." I smiled, "How are you?"

"Confused." Kendall said.

"Confused?" I asked.

"There's just a lot..." Kendall trailed.

"Nuff said." I said, "I know the type of stuff."

"We need to hang out." Kendall said.

"Mos def." I smiled, "I'm ready to have..."

"What the Hell is this?!" Hannah asked, marching across the club.

"Oh god...what now?" I asked.

Adaen: Sometimes you want what other people have...sometimes you just want the person...and some people are just envious...

Hannah threw papers at me. While everyone looked to us, I read the papers. Someone wrote an anonymous letter that explained Oz's situation I looked at the papers carefully, not daring to meet her eyes. When I did, I was unpleasantly surprised to see her looking at me with disgust.

"You son of a bitch, you knew!" Hannah said.

"Can we not do this here?" I asked.

"No!" Hannah said, "You knew he shot my husband and didn't say a word!"

"I just found out." I said softly.

Hannah slapped me, "Where is he?" she asked.

I grabbed my face and stared at her.

"You know what, we'll see what the police have to say about this!" Hannah frowned.

I grabbed her arm, "Please..."

She jerked away, "Get off me!" she said, storming out.

I was left with everyone looking at me. I turned when I heard a projector start. It was a power point that flashed accomplice in big, bright colors! The slide went on to say that I knew about Oz and helped him escape. There was a roar of shock throughout the room as I retreated.

"Hey!" Marco said, "I'm sorry about that."

"Sorry? I can't believe you!" I shouted.

"Me? What does this have to do with me?" Marco asked.

"I told you because I knew I could trust you." I said, "I lost my virginity to you. You were my best friend."

"I didn't tell Hannah and I didn't make the power point!" Marco frowned.

"You're the only person who knew." I said, turning and leaving.

"Aid!" Marco called after me.

Adaen: Yes, our little town just got rocked by the seven deadly sins. Wherever we go, those sins always find us...leaving chaos and insanity.
