Write Her Story
by Melissa Lason
Lilith held a glass of red wine and gazed into a floor length mirror. She toasted herself and winked at the seemingly young beautiful lady staring back at her. This night had been busy and filled with hard work. Even with all her magic and strength Lilith was tired and in need of a bit of relaxation. Good thing she was prepared for just that. Again she looked upon her lovely form. It made her giggle a bit to think how surprised her prey always were. She looked so dainty and sweet. The poor fools didn’t stand a chance. Her true self was something that was inconceivable to most.
Her servant called to the mistress that bath time was prepared. Lilith sighed and removed the red silk robe she had been wearing. The smooth fabric slid off her curves. From her lavish bathroom next door a terrified scream broke the air. Lilith grinned as large talons broke the skin of her fingers. The once sweet face she had been admiring now looked more like a jackal. She strode into the beautiful white room and stood before the large porcelain tub and the fool chained beside it. With the sight of Lilith’s true form the poor bastard screamed again and again. The vampire queen approached him. He was near fainting when the naked beast stood before him one large talon raised beside his throat. “Bath time” Lilith growled and opened a large vein. The tub began to collect the red steaming pools of blood and the ancient lady eased into it, achieving the relaxation she sought.

Xibalba, home of torture and sacrifice, is the kingdom of the lord of death. He stalked the night in the guise of a putrefied corpse, with the head of an owl and adorned with a necklace of disembodied eyes that hung from nerve cords. He commanded legions of shapeshifting creatures, spectral shamans, and corpses hungry for the flesh of the living. The Mayans feared him and his realm of horror. He sat atop his pyramid temple surrounded by his demon kings and demanded sacrifices of blood and beating hearts as tribute to him and his ghostly world.
These legends, along with those that lived in fear of them, have been dead and gone for centuries. Yet now, a doorway has been opened in Georgia.
