“Be careful how you throw the blame around,” I whispered angrily; “It might come back to you.”
“Me? Oh no. No. No. You have it all wrong,” she seethed. “The blame will never circle back to me. It will be pinned on you, where it hurts most; I’ll make sure of that.” Her eyes narrowed. “You are guilty, and you know it. Your punishment is here, and you don’t even have the courage to face it properly. You are a coward, a fool,” she hissed.
“I did nothing wrong! You lured me into one of your traps, and I was too ignorant to find a way out!” I cried heatedly.
“Exactly!” She laughed. Then her voice grew cold as she said “That is your fault. Ignorance. Your blame to bear. Not mine.”
“We are all ignorant. It is what makes us human! Without ignorance, we would be nothing, nothing at all.” I whispered. “We would eventually end up like you, a perfect being that has no life. Or is that why you do this to us? Do you wreck other people’s lives because you have none of your own? Jealousy is a powerful emotion,” I accused her softly. “It is hard to use wisely.”
She blinked, and then sneered. “I am from a race of perfection. Nothing such as jealousy knows our realm. It cannot enter.”
“It can,” I said triumphantly. “You want to find a flaw in others and publicize it to make yourself seem great, to make the other person sink to your true level. You think you are perfect. Perfection is an intangible thing. It is a goal that no one can reach. You and your ignorance disgust me.” I proclaimed.
“I have no ignorance” she spat.
“Then why are you still here? If you are not ignorant, you shouldn’t be living on the same land as humans. They are a very unaware species. If you are as you claim, you should no longer be with us,” I jeered.
“You are a troublesome brat;” she seethed. “You will be sorry for this, for you have brought on your own downfall. It is your fault alone.”
“The blame is on you, this time,” I laughed. “You are subject to your own fate as I am subject to mine. No one controls any one else’s fate, unless they are from a special, intelligent race. And you are not.”
“I am!” she screamed.
“Prove it” I said victoriously.
And she was gone.
