Daily Prompt~ Write about a justifiable sin (an excerpt from my current novel)
His blood boiled, he could feel the steam within his lungs as the heat grew. The sting he felt in his eyes as he watched those about him hurt more than he expected. Anger, he hadn’t felt anger in the entire time since their arrival in this place, until now. He knew it wasn’t jealousy, it wasn’t fear, it wasn’t what most would think of as a sin; but he knew what he was feeling was wrong.
