|The seven sins challenge|
I really struggled with Sloth. In the end, I looked close to home for inspiration. Not that I want this to happen to the Old Git really. Well, only when he really annoys me.

Lilah has that look again, the one with narrowed eyes on me. "There's still water leaking downstairs whenever someone showers, you know."
"I'm going to fix it soon. Just keep the water off the walls until then."
She glares at me as she walks out.

Lilah puts a towel under the wet patch on the ceiling before she has her shower.
"Soon," I say before she can start on me.
"Yeah, yeah," she says wearily as she goes upstairs.
A creak makes me look up as I stir my tea in the kitchen. As the bath crashes through the rotten ceiling and hits me, the last thing I hear is Lilah's scream.
