The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

It started with a low dull hum
Gentle vibrations, a lullaby from the stone below
Rapidly gaining momentum
Until the Earth shook and the obsidian sarcophagus
Air pierced my lungs like molten lava
The agony shaking me out of my stasis,
My infinite sleep interrupted.
Stretching into my rebirth
I walk towards the pulsating stone embedded
In the heart of the cave.
Placing both hands upon it
I am infused with purpose.
Eyes flash green in symbiosis with the crystal
Spidery black wings erupt from my back
Smoky scythe appears in my hand.
Reaper, harbinger of death.
My time is come…
