The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Of Earth
by Ela Lourenco

Of Earth and Sky were we born
Of Thunder, Lighting, Wind and Sea
Pink young flesh and beating hearts
Of joy, sorrow, pain and love
The Darkness inched in subtly
The Sun still shone for many a year
By the time we realised its glow had dimmed
The disease had spread without repair.
We consumed, devoured ourselves
Pink flesh turned ashen
Gleaming locks dulled with rot
Feeding, yet forever starving
The sickness spread within
Until all that was left was a planet of dirt
Old bones and carcasses that once did live.

Essence

Katra is a Fae Hunter in a world once ravaged by a terrible war. Having lost all memory of her childhood and rightful identity, her duty is now to protect the tentative peace brokered by the varying races of the supernatural world. When an evil darkness begins to spread, draining young witches of their power, Katra must find a way back to her true past in order to save the future.

Enduring many trials as ever-increasing powers awaken within her, Katra must also struggle with the mixed emotions her new partner, Blade – a Black Dragon – is rousing within her. Together they must battle the shadows that plan to devour the world they know and prevent its decent into another thousand-year war.

Can Katra hold onto her strength as the truth of her very being begins to unravel? Can she bear the weight that ancient prophecy has placed on her young shoulders? Or is her destiny to regain her true self, only to lose the world she is sworn to protect?
