House of Abraxas

by Tawny Kipphorn

A labyrinth of torture chambers lie within the cobweb festooned walls of Abraxas. Therein resides the beast known as the tempest. Its menacing maelstrom of malignant monstrosities are in relentless pursuit to enslave souls in its perpetual torment. It dwells within our minds, and how unfortunate am I to have been deemed the chosen one. For what egregious act have I committed that I am eternally bound to the demon specter. I stood toe to toe with the thing as pools of black spread across the whites of its eyes.
Serpents with scales of obsidian spilled forth from its fetid maw, and I felt an intense heat burning its way up my throat, silencing my desperate pleas. The growing intimacy with the vast darkness etched into my brain as the turning point of my existence. The serpents of the tempest led a path to my personal hell, my yellow-brick road paved in black. My eyes can only see within the shadows now, for the light has become my one true enemy. There is no escape from this, only to succumb to its will.
As the sun dies each day, and the full moon glows, I am reminded of my sinister bond. I am nothing more than a mouse at the mercy of my prey. A lowly acolyte eternally trapped within this house of hell, the House of Abraxas.
