EM-Drabbles – Twenty

“But this is beautiful!” Love’s goddess was enchanted by the blue and green planet, abundant with life.

The God of Evil smirked. “I know.”

“I don’t see anything evil,” she said, admiring the humans, something he’d invented for this new world. They could love, feel and create, almost like gods themselves.

“No?”

A shriek came of agony and fear. The goddess, horrified, watched one beautiful animal killing another.

“No!”

“Yes!” Evil’s deity gloated. “I designed this world so living things must kill and eat others to live themselves.”

The goddess paled as she realised the true horror he had wrought.
