The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
They foretold of terrible events to come.
The eyes in the sky appeared one day and were burned into the memories of those who witnessed them. At the time, no one knew what to think, staring in awe instead of trying to understand the ominous message. With the birds silent and the creatures still, one might have thought the world was recharging, resetting.
But when they came, the eyes disappeared, fading into the horizon, not staying to witness the ensuing carnage. It was vicious, lethal, unrelenting. Suffering unlike anything that could have been imagined—with no one left to witness the utter extermination, the eyes returned to oversee the wasteland they’d created.

What would you do if you knew the Dead could talk?
For Chester Penderghast, it’s not the easiest of questions to answer…
Ensconced in the basement of his family’s mortuary business is the last place he wants to be, but when the conversation starts flowing, Chester’s the only living person who can hear it. What do the Dead want, and why is he the only one who can hear them?
This is not your average zombie tale—the Dead don’t want to eat your brains, but they will chew your ear off!
