The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by Sue Renol
I opened my eyes from a deep sleep to see her face. Those eyes stared deep into my soul. Immeasurable sadness lay dormant within them. I wanted to believe it was a dream, but I knew it was not.
“Who are you?” I asked. The sound of my words were sucked into the vortex behind her.
She answered not with her lips, but with her mind. You’ve been accepted. Do you wish to go?
My thoughts were struck hard with an undeniable truth. True, plain, and honest, her response told me everything I needed to know. But how could it have happened? Hard as I tried, I couldn’t remember.
You don’t need to remember. All will be anew.
Reluctantly, I let her take my hand and lead me to the beyond.

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!
