Title: Compulsion
Rating: G
Words: 100
Prompt: Crowley's Resolution #1: I must accept that Super-Gluing valuable coins to the sidewalk and then watching events from a nearby café is not proper demonic activity.
Team: Crowley and Aziraphale


Things were becoming ridiculous.

He’d already done it three times that day, yet the desire to do it again would not abate.

Be firm, he told himself sternly, you can resist the urge. And resist the urge he did, until ten minutes later he spotted a middle-aged woman greedily snatch a stray twenty-pound note from the ground.

It was all too much. The coins were jangling in his pocket and that café across the street looked like the ideal vantage point.

Another little game couldn’t do him any harm. After all he could give it up any time he liked.

Thank you :D

Crowley's just not ready to admit that it's become a problem yet.

Re: sporfle! It's not one-hundred words, but it naturally popped into my head.
Bwahahahaha. That's utterly brilliant. Aziraphale's bastardly streak is quite clearly alive and well. I just hope that Crowley manages to get out of the support group meeting mostly unscathed.

It /was/ going too far, wasn't it? He'd taken to slinging heavy bags around, and using the coins he had from Isaac Newton's days at the Mint. The other day his favourite trousers had hardened glue at the bottom, and he'd even filched a coin from a young child's pocket.

Hee. I love how he reaches this level of addiction before admitting to himself that his little habits getting out of hand.
