Falling to his knees, the petitioner stretched out his arms and sent his voiceless plea to the skies, sending forth his plea to the goddesses with all his soul.
He soon got his answer.
“You interrupted our meditations for that???“ the goddess shouted, her face enraged at the petitioner’s impertinence. The walls of the temple trembled from the volume of the creature’s voice, while the man on the bolster before her cringed.
The goddess’ sister circled around to the fool’s backside, a sword of light materializing in her glowing hands. “You know that greater men than you have died at our hands for lesser sins than this.”
“But, gracious ladies,” the wretch burbled, arms outstretched, “I did not mean to offend!”
“And yet you did,” the goddess hissed. “And so you shall pay for what you have done.” She stretched forth a glowing hand, and the glow surrounded the poor fellow, who screamed and writhed — and then seemed to condense and curdle into himself. A flash of light, and then, where he had knelt, a silver platter rested, filled with a pile of a strange yellow substance.
The goddess picked the platter up and smiled grimly. “That should make the idiot happy. He did ask me to make him a plate of scrambled eggs, after all.”
