Write a formal letter to you or your character’s greatest fear.
Wishing your family a very Happy Easter!
Oh Evil One,
Why oh why am I plagued by you? At which moment have you entered my mind? I feel you weaving your snakelike darkness though my soul, squeezing tighter with each second of my life.
Oh leave my mind now you evil desire, I will not entertain the thought of it! Accepting those filthy 30 pieces of silver would mean abandoning all that I am, all that I believe.
You will not succeed! I will conquer this shameful desire to profit from the harm of my Master, one who is so wonderful, so GREAT! It is unthinkable; this is no mere man, He is my teacher, my guide. More than a brother He is the light in my life!
Your sinister efforts must cease and desist, I refuse to be the bearer of the kiss of death; my love for this man is too vast to be overcome. Leave me! I cast you out, you are evicted!
I will ignore the sores on my bleeding, shoeless feet; wash in the frigid waters of the streams on our journey; continue to fight for slumber on the cold wet ground at the feet of this man denying this urge within myself.
Strength and humility will be mine, I will find a way…God will provide for me if I would only remain strong in my course of servitude.
There will be no kiss of death which will hold my name!
Oh why do I feel so compelled to complete this unthinkable task?
My mind betrays me, I love this man whom I am to brand with my lips; He has honoured me by choosing me to be one of the 12; He has washed my feet, shared bread with me; His love for me embraces my soul.
And yet you, your calamitous greed overwhelm me, pulling me slowly away from my Lord.
NO! I must not be the giver of the wretched kiss; I cannot entertain the thought of this betrayal.
My hand betrays me as I reach for the velvet bag, my eyes sting with the filth of it all, this deception is unbearable.
Your hateful words whisper on the wind into my brain through my ears….eating at my mind.
You have won oh Evil One.
