The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
He never liked my face…or, rather, the lack of make-up on said face.
“You need to do something,” he would tell me. “Especially around the eyes.”
This he told his friends, my friends, the checker at the grocery…ad nauseum.
Then my mom died, and my sister and I had to go through her effects.
Lo and behold, I found her icepick. My first thought first appalled me, then really appealed to me.
It’s a shame that he didn’t live long enough to see his wish come true.
I really do look good in red…

More from Author K.R. Morrison:
Lydia’s faith in God is strong – at least on paper. But what happens when that faith is tested? Turned into a vampire by the worst – Vlad Drakul – she feels that God has abandoned her. But the opposite is true. God rescues her from a fate worse than death, and brings her into the plan He has for global redemption. With the help He sends, she feels like nothing can stop her. But when Vlad torments her again, and then her family, the temptation to run and hide is almost too strong to resist. Her answer to God’s call is the deciding factor in the battle that pits the angelic powers of God against the demonic powers of Hell.
