Mercy
by Sue Renol

She traveled far, through murderous deserts and over raging seas. The difficulty of her journey wore down her resolve, but never dissolved it. The blighted lands held power feared by all. But the promise it offered drew her toward it without regret, despite the sacrifices she made.

When she reached the abandoned shrine, she felt the sadness of those left behind. Broken and nearly destroyed, her people were at the mercy of vengeful gods. They scorched the land, cast storms over every village large and small, and infected livestock with pestilence. They turned their backs on their children and the world created for them.

She knew there was only one way to help her people. It was the most heinous sin one could commit, but desperation drove her there. She called upon the unspoken god, the outcast and shunned among its siblings, the wicked bringer of terror and destruction. It was the first time its name had been uttered in eons, which is all it took to wake the patient beast.

A great chasm tore the very fabric of reality as it broke free of its prison. It rose in the sky above her, gazed down with eyes of fire and hate. She knew then that her people were cursed either way. Once it destroyed all other gods, her people would be at its mercy.

Wicked Deeds: Witches, Warlocks, Demons and Other Evil Doer’s

Sometimes wicked people do wicked things simply because they can… The twelve stories in Wicked Deeds tell tales of witches and warlocks with ill intent, devilish demons bent on destruction, and other doers of evil who make the world a terrifying place. What is a mother to do when her daughter is gifted but lives under the thumb of her fanatical preacher husband who will brook no talk of the supernatural? What of a demon so desperate to free himself of a trap that he will force another to repeat his atrocities and condemn a young boy to his demonic fate? Or maybe the story of a crotchety old witch with a score to settle against the town she lives in is more to your liking – what evil will the seemingly harmless town-crazy call upon when faced with an ultimatum? If you’re looking for wicked people with supernatural abilities doing wicked things, this is the collection for you!

Available on Amazon!

  1. Really enjoyed your interpretation of the prompt – I wonder whether she will be rewarded or punished for the action she needed to take to save her people? Fascinating.
