'Heresy' is a bit different from the rest. There is no real twist or plot, I noticed. I'm still proud of the work I've put into it though and I do believe that it is still quite good. I want my readers to know what I'm going for here though.
I wanted to experiment with pacing. Notice how I switch from an elegant and very wordy style to something more simplistic by the last two paragraphs without breaking the overall flow. At least that's what I hope I've done.
I don't want to force interpretation on people here, but I won't back down from saying that there is possibility of allegory here. Feel free to discuss it as you like!
