The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Marge Simon
She’s a little sweetheart. Blue eyes bright, pin striped tattoo patterns on her babyface. She probably got them for kicks at the start of the 20th century. She is ten thousand years old today, with most of the world’s history behind her. What remains of the future is drawing closer to the end. Tired of growing up, she grows down, nestling in the unmarked graves of dead soldiers. You laugh and call me a fool. Then come closer my dear, see her there between those rotted skulls?
“She’s alive as you and me!” you say. “We must rescue her,” you say.
Look at her closely. She’s not asking for our help. We must leave now. Of course, you refuse to follow me, as I knew you would. She’s hungry. Silly woman, haven’t you guessed? Her dinner is you.
