The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Conjur Wife Redux
by Marge Simon

I was a lowly accountant and she was a shy young thing. A head of unruly red curls, and a keen attention to anything I said. She stole my heart! How joyful I was when she agreed to marry me. Her pot roasts and desserts were heavenly, and she never complained about anything. In the space of two years, I rose to be manager of the firm.
All that I just took for granted until one stormy night when gargoyles were flying about willy-nilly as they have been wont to do since we moved here, I caught her in the kitchen invoking a spell.
“Is that creature in the air with a scorpion tail a kindred spirit?”  I asked.
“Of course he is, Malcolm,” she replied with a twinkle in her emerald eyes.  “Is that a problem?”

More from Marge Simon:

Satan’s Sweethearts

These poems feature some of the most evil women throughout history based on accounts found by the authors Marge Simon and Mary Turzillo.

Some will be well known, others are women of infamy that few, if any, know about.

A truly chilling and unsettling collection.

      Thank you! If you don’t know Leiber’s CONJUR WIFE (1943), you might not get the connection –but it’s not absolutely imperative. 🙂
