This is the Seven Deadly Cardinals - seven stories of seven different people, how they embody the heavenly cardinal in its goodness and then how they are dragged to become the opposite sin. No story is the same, no life is similar. The mental strength and capacity of one might be bigger, but that does not equal certainty of getting out from the troubles of life. There might be longing for what we don't have, driving us to do the unthinkable. Strengths becoming weaknesses, weakness breaking into new strength - it's dance of madness, chaos. Not all is set in stone. The stories include a lady that falls for a serial killer, an actor and tailor, the flower shop owner and orphanage, a priest and gangster mob, an office worker and a stalker, landlords son and new tenant, youth centre worker and how things did not go as it should.

But what if all of that was part of the same thing – like two sides of the same coin? Let me go on and most likely taint all the nice there is in the world, for just a bit…The beliefs that we make, what we decide – the paths taken and desires that drive. Imperfect human life.

His devotion to the surrounding life was admirable. He was the perfect neighbor, the really appreciative son, great friend, the irreplaceable worker, the most pleasing person on a train, the nice helpful stranger and the biggest hearted human one could possibly ask for. Friends were absolutely loving him - he was the host of dreams. Every meetup, gathering, event or simple tea time was always requested to be hosted by him. He managed to please every person attending. Each of these events were leading to his increase in popularity. Girls were in awe from his gallantry and mindfulness of them. Ladies kept on asking him to become their boyfriend, lover, best friend. There were even ones so desperate that proposed - but he kept on saying that no matter how fond he is of them, there will be a better suitor for the amazing ladies they are.

Another end of day for the “Dame Rose Atelier”. The doors are locked from inside, sign flipped to “closed”, the show room is cleaned up. The only person left inside is tailor. In the back of the atelier, with rows of fabric, shelves of buttons and neatly organised equipment on the table, near the sewing machine, a tailor sat on the chair. The fitting mannequin wore a draft for a suit jacket. Phone dings, Richard notes down another appointment on his phone. He took out the notebook and signed into it the time and name of the new person.

The assistant came in to greet any customers, help them a

“Forgive me father, for I have sinned…” His lips were pressed together, as he listened to this woman and her long list of things she “wants to be forgiven”.Businesswoman, great stature, connections and looks. She was the typical epitome of “femme fatale”. In early forties, suited to the most expensive taste and always sweetly talking. Due to being closely raised in a monastery, this priest got to be in his position quite young - special devoted case. Since childhood he was looked at as a saint - albino by nature. White hair, white brows and lashes, eyes blue. Nuns were calling him the “godsent angel” who will cleanse and help lost souls. Being quite bored with this womans confession, Lavan observed the fly that was crawling over the red velvet curtain. Tiny legs hurriedly making way up and down, then standing still. Like it observed the priest, as he observed the fly. “Ah, another thing that will end dead and dried on a windowsill.” - Lavan thought as his eyes traced flys movemen

[6] Seven Deadly Cardinals - Kindness/Envy
“Don’t forget to water irises!” - Father loudly remarks from the porch, as I stand further out in the garden. Instead of shouting a reply I simply wave a hand. I can hear him clicking his tongue, from all the way out here, as he dropped his hand in that dissatisfied gesture at me. “Asshole.” - I mutter under my breath. The hose sprinkles the water over the flower bed, the evening is letting the heat of the sun die down. It’s quite the odd heat in July, but still, it makes me enjoy it as it goes. “Alois!” - The old lady Margaret that lives up on the third floor waves at me from the balcony. “Evening!” - I reply to her with a smile. “Come get apple pie, once you finish! I baked a lot!” - Margaret giggled and went back in. She’s by far the nicest lady I’ve met in my life. She is easy to be around, so very relaxing and nice. Unlike my father, for example. The old man is bossing me around a lot, yet I’m alright with it. I get that he’s doing his best in his own way, with over the to

Agne!” - Tomas is shouting from the corridor of the centre.“Here!” - Agne replies, as she’s buried in her work.Tomas walks in, with his outside winter coat, red cheeks, boots, and a very happy expression on his face.“Can you imagine?

Isn’t that amazing?!” - Tomas was overjoyed with the great news.Agne looked at him with a smile, a cheeky look, then smacked her lips and replied: “I received email from her yesterday.

She did great.”Buzz of cars was audible from an open crack in a window. Office needed some good air in. The place was packed with youngster
