The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Sue Renol
This crop grows with the passage of time, the heat of the sun, rain from passing clouds. Seemingly innocent, red flowers populate this field. Yet, they are not of nature. I’ve planted them with hands of wrath, tilled the soil with ill intent. They shall grow, just as any other, but upon their blooming, my will shall be released. Their pleasant scent will be inhaled, enjoyed by those who inhabit this land. But their beauty will be a deceit, death wrapped in a coat of silk. Carried on their aroma will be the pestilence to end all who walk on legs, live within flesh. Their demise will be quick and unexpected. My growth will spread, consume all within its path. My precious blossoms will cleanse the Earth of the disease which infects its once vibrant exterior.

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!
Fittingly, a similar sentiment/comment when one is watching OZARK! How so!
A great story.
“tilled the soil with ill intent” – fantastically creepy
