This week’s words: Glare Nyctophilia (a love or preference for night, darkness) Novitiate (the state or period of being a novice of a religious order or congregation. the quarters occupied by religious novices during probation. the state or period of being a beginner in anything. a novice.) Structure Tattoo Eristic (a person who engages in debate; conversationalist. the art of disputation.) Erogenous Irregular Adjust Lurk Siphon Terrorize
Greg, Heavens own sent angel on earth and his ‘friend’ Wayne, Hells erstwhile representative on earth sat at the breakfast table looking over their schedule for the day.
They both looked at the date, Wayne with relish and Greg with his usual sense of dread.
It was the day they visited the novitiate.
For Wayne it was a sort of smorgasbord of souls all ready and waiting to be tempted into eternal damnation. Greg on the other hand was trepidatous about the visit as it meant appealing to the novice’s good graces and in so many cases the novices had none. It wasn’t hard to understand when you considered the rigors of monastic life.
The glare of temptation was strong, these were vibrant and sensuous women forced to ignore the calling of every erogenous zone on their body day in and day out. It was a very tough gig for so many.
Sister Amanda Jane or Sister A-J as she preferred had discovered she was a nyctophile and roamed the cloisters at night in search of another nun who might join her in erogenous discovery. Of course there were many candidates, Sister Willomena Child, known outside of chapel as the Sister Wild Thing, was one such willing body.
She was one of Wayne’s favourites and had even allowed Wayne to tattoo his name onto her left breast. Wayne had recently completed a tattoo course at Hades Tatts and Body Piercing School for Devilish Demons and was always eager to put his newfound skills to use.
To say that both entities disagreed over most things was putting it mildly. So often they engaged in eristic debate which often got heated and led to the two angels stamping their feet and giving off in Greg’s case small angelic puffs of smoke from his feet and in Wayne’s case small devilish flames from out his ears. Either way you looked at it, it was something to adjust to, as it was very unbecoming on both sides.
On this particular day Greg had insisted that he see Sister A-J to try and save her soul while Wayne was happy to pay Sister Wild Thing one of what he called an irregular visit. Greg shuddered at the thought of what that meant but he was sure it involved some sort of syphoning of some sort that was sure to end in tears.
Greg wanted to give Sister A-J a structure by which she might live her chaste life even though he doubted she was very chaste at all more likely she was chased more often than chaste.
Greg found Sister A-J lurking with Sister Wild Thing in a very un-novitiate pose at the entrance to the novitiate a pose which he knew was designed to terrorise the other novices as they went down to early morning prayer.
As they approached the two sisters they became aware of the two women making a b-line for Wayne who was grinning from ear to ear and showing a very non-entity response held out his arms to the two women.
Wayne acted quickly offering Sister A-J a tattoo on any part of her body that wouldn’t cause him embarrassment. She turned to Wayne and begged him to put one on her…Greg shut his ears at that very moment the glare of his own damnation terrorising his own holy person.
He looked up to see the two nuns either side of Wayne disappearing down the sacred cloisters with Wayne offering to help them discover a new erogenous zone known only to the devil inside of you.
Greg looking disconsolate, looked down and saw that Wayne had left him a ham sandwich* which under the circumstances was a whole lot better than dealing with ladies tattoos and erogenous zones.
