Bountiful Blessings

By Scott L Vannatter – 155 Words

@SVBookman

Pepe walked proudly toward the center of town, toward the throng of people gathered for the ceremony, gathered for him.  He was pleased with himself for having been the bravest, the one deserving of praise and valor, and of the privilege of being the chosen one.  He walked with his head high held high, his spirits higher.

When he reached the square, the priest anointed his forehead with olive oil to signify the coming bounty.  He prayed over Pepe, drawing the crowd in with his thanks and pleas to Beophile.  The villagers began to chant, starting softly, then growing to a frenzy of screaming.

While they were chanting, they lifted Pepe up by their hands and tossed him high into the air.  With each chanting repeat they tossed him higher.  The clouds grew darker and he saw the hand of Beophile coming for him.  His courage failed him. He began to cry, understanding at last.
