Soren & Peter: A Contention of Betrayal, Love & Loss

Soren:

What can I do? Would she accept so much as for me to dip my tongue in a cup of water, for her sake?

Peter:

Nay, indeed! For she is in a more blessed state than thou.

Soren:

Good! Then let me be damned, a thousand times over, that she may soar!

Peter:

Thy perdition availeth but little to her. She is of her own, and not of thine.

Soren:

What does she want from me? Redemption, damnation? Salvation, perdition? What does she want me to do?

Peter:

That is not the question thou needs must ask.

Soren:

It is the only one I care about.

Peter:

Then remain in here forever… As your lawful abode. Make up your loathsome bed in Hell”

Soren:

I would have damned myself for her sake.

Peter:

Thou liest. If you thou hadst not said these evil words, thou wouldst even now been on the path to repentance.

Soren:

Even St Augustine wanted to damn himself for her sake!

Peter:

And he came to know that this was heaping impenitence upon iniquity. To wrong another living soul is a weighty matter; to wrong her without measure and without restraint, more solemn still. But to place the very means of repentance beyond oneself is of the very essence of hellish presumption; after this, there is no more talk of the least recourse to grace.

Soren:

Then let me be damned! Then let redemption go to Hell!

Peter:

This may be sooner than you think…
