The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Stephanie Ayers
She waits until you’re sleeping
to perform her nightly chores.
She skulks in the darkest corner
Watching those she abhors.
Waiting, just waiting…
Until the dreams begin.
It is then and only then
She’ll taunt your deepest fears
With her blood red lips, a sheer dress,
And ghostly eyes filled with tears.
Until you give in.
Taste the blood she offers freely
With a kiss upon her lips
Suck until every last drop is gone
And passion fills your hips.
Releasing the monster within.
She’ll match you thrust for thrust
And give you all she’s got
Her teeth tearing and shredding skin
A vampyre fresh from a drought.
Your humanity is your only sin.
She waits until you’re sleeping,
Until your eyes have closed
That’s when she attacks the most,
Your deepest fear exposed.
The succubus always wins.

A Sudden Flutter of Wings
Something strange is happening in Ruppert Hills, Missouri and it’s up to news reporter Kate Chisholm to get to the bottom of it.
When a body turns up in an old grain mill, something sinister begins to haunt her dreams, and no one is willing to tell her why. As her investigation leads her to the Trail of Tears and an old Indian shaman, and she mysteriously turns up pregnant, things get even stranger.
Is the baby she carries the key to the mystery shrouding Ruppert Hills or are they all doomed to the evil arising?
