I walked down the dark streets, taking the scenic route back home. Sure, Radiant city was supposed to be beautiful, but it only looked like that during the day. My place- the Knight's castle, was in the center of the city, and considering the fact that I was on the outskirts of the place, it was a long walk back. I turned a corner and heard a woman screaming. I left my sword back home, but I knew kung-fu. It was enough to fight. I heard the woman scream again, "I'm coming!" I yelled. She was either being mugged or sexually assulted.
"He-help!" she yelled back. "This man is- ah!" a man ran out of an alleyway, clutching a woman's purse. I sighed. I couldn't believe anyone still did this. I walked into the guy's path. He wound up running his face into my fist. He yelped in pain and jerked back. His nose was bleeding.
"What the hell man?" he yelled at me. Then pulled out a knife. "Look, this has nothing to do with you buddy, so just leave me be, and I'll do the same."
"Yeah, right. I know your kind of folk," I replied in an immature tone, "So if you want a fight, bring it on." I entered a fighting stance, fists up, ready to attack or defend at any moment. He looked a bit shocked, since I was unarmed and he had a knife, but then he raised his blade and attacked.
It took me exactly five minutes to beat the guy. He put up a fight, I'll admit, but he was no match for my speed. That's why they call me Knight of the Wind. I picked up the woman's purse and brought it back to her. "Here you go ma'am." I handed her the bag.
"Oh, thank you." She replied. "Greed has always wanted wealth, but I didn't expect him to take the possessions of his kin." She could clearly see how puzzled I was, because she continued, "Oh, you must not know us," she said in a seductive tone, which, to me, didn't exactly work in this conversation. "Allow me to introduce myself, I am Lust."
Lust? Who would name their their child Lust? Wait... "Oh, come with my, boy." She grabbed my arm and pulled me to another part of the city.
A while later, we were at an abandoned building near the "bad" district of town. Lust pulled me inside. "Master," she called out, "I brought someone."
A few minutes passed, then a voice, clearly that of an old man, replied: "Who is this child, Lust?"
"He has no idea who we are, Sir."
It was quiet, then a new voice entered, "What the heck is he doing here?" it was the purse-stealing guy, he just came in. His nose was smashed, he had a black eye, and his groin was... well, it would never work properly again...
"Silence, Greed." the old man's voice calmly said. The purse thief immedietly shut up. "Now then, it seems we do have a vacancy..." What was this guy talking about? I heard hushed whispers around the room, Lust stayed silent.
"It is decided. You will be Pride." Pride? What was this guy-
Before I could finish my thoughts, an eerie green light came to life in the room."Aw, don't tell you're turning this kid into one of us?" one of them? What?
A beam of green energy came at me, and as it hit me, I passed out.
I dreamed of my future, or what it would be, if I didn't stop this. My soul would be lost to the Seven Deadly Sins, and I had one night to destroy them all, or the Circle of Sin would be completed. And the world will be thrown into complete chaos.
