Confessing to the Order to move into the disorder of all things

Gathering her lunar thoughts into a linear blueprint required the utmost personal strength. Her Durendal strength had been forged from the gospel of her fading heart.
A betraying tear dropped into her outstretched hand. She stared at its perfect form and for a moment she believed the reflection was that of a Botticelli angel. Her unfurled fingers curled tightly into the palm of her hand; swallowing the tear.

The scythe wielding bandit made deliberate movements forward. Lupus rocked back on his hind legs, snarling. The rattle of her bones grew louder as she traced the lattice grid that separated the Act of Contrition.
A day earlier she had communed with the mind prophet that lived and was crucified just before he was able to erase her sins. The prie-dieu grew arms and reined her to her knees. Comfort escaped on Da Vinci’s flying machine.

The blade of Durendal scraped away her brow sweat. Shallow breath crept through the lattice grid.

“Welcome my Child”

She removed the hood from her head; her fear cascaded down her spine. The hour crowed. I am heartily sorry. I am heartily sinful. I am heartily ready. If I wrap my soul in brown paper and tie with a yellow ribbon will he deliver it home? She opened her mouth to deliver her blueprint. There was no sound.

“Welcome my Child”

She strained tearing at her voice box begging for an utterance.

There was no sound.

Indignation snarled louder than Lupus
How dare my sins betray me further?
