The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

13th Hour                                                                                        
by Ela Lourenco 

Dark clouds shroud the sky
The Moon is full, rising high
The cursed forest comes alive
Gnarled branch fingers, sharp as knives
Midnight strikes then time stands still
The Undead waken to maim and kill
Underneath the Moon’s unholy beams
Begins the time of terrorising dreams
Rivers run red, the skies turn black
Creatures of the Night, primed to attack
Dracula’s castle shimmers into being
Father of all Undead, awake and all-seeing
At his command, the gates of Hell open wide
Letting loose the nightmare in one surging tide
I perch atop my shadow tree
Crowing as my Master sets me free
I, his pet since the dawn of time
There is no bloodthirst such as mine
I will feast until my eyes turn red
Gorging on the souls of those now dead.

Death Birds
by Asena Lourenco

The moon, glistening with the reflection of the sun
The wind whistling when the battle has been won
Crows squawking at each little sound
Watching, making sure no one else is around
The sky screaming with the Prince in harmony
The birds softly adding a haunting melody
Clouds rising at an alarming rate
Swooping, the Crows leading souls to their fate.

More from Ela Lourenco:


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?
