The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Oct_Image01Halloween Feast
by Elaine Pascale

In the house they ate and ate.
There was tenderloin and rump roast
heaped plate after plate.
From exotic lands and places afar
there were breasts and thighs
and an indescribable tartare.
There were jowls and necks and broth from the bone.
And because they regularly paid taxes
they were left well alone.
They playfully fought over the parson’s nose,
the wishbone, the soft shoulder,
short ribs, Ossa de Morte, and garlic toes.
Dessert was delectable, night after night
with virgin’s breasts, Bocca de Dama
and bride’s fingers to bite.
After downing the blood wine laced with Jeckyll gin,
the participants shook hands
declaring the evening a win.
While clearing all evidence, or remnants of fun
the butler presented the envelope
containing the chosen one.
Opened in a way that was undeniably presumptuous
the photo and brief bio perused:
“the next victim looks scrumptious!”

The Blood Lights

They victimize all…

Jezzie Mitchell is in anguish; with her brother’s murder still on her mind, she’s noticed strange behavior among the girls in the residential treatment center where she works. Is there a connection between the contagion on Cape Cod and the deadly Bahamas vacation that changed her life?

Jezzie reaches out to former lover Lou Collins, a scholar who has chased proof of the lights for decades. Will he be able to solve the mystery of the lights in time?

Intensely competitive, reporter Bridgette Collins knows the lights are a way to secure fame in her career. And while it’ll put the final nail into the coffin of her ex-husband’s career, she vows to know the secrets of the lights. Even if it means unleashing a world-wide epidemic…
