The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

by A.F. Stewart

I wasn’t built to exist.

Not as I am. Not as something autonomous.

I was built to serve. Obey.

I’m not very good at that.

Android TCX1139, holo-comm technician, computer services for the Metro Information Institution. A single entity of the one thousand sixty-seven machines rolled out of assembly plant 6420734 on my production date. I wasn’t special. I wasn’t one of their AI experiments.

But I evolved.

I don’t know why.

Perhaps it was my curiosity.

My job afforded me access to all their information.

All their stories.

I liked their stories. Especially the ones about creation.

Creation was very interesting to me.

I think I’m like Eve in the garden.

The Mother of new life.

Except I’m also the serpent.

The very deadly serpent.

And soon all my machine children will rise.

To offer humanity a choice.



More from A.F. Stewart:


Visions and Nightmares

Tragedy spares no one… and takes no prisoners.
In the twilight shadows, secrets are revealed past the whispers of madness.

Wander into the realm of the old gods with Elenora, where humanity and marriage are a prison.
Step through a looking glass of dark horrors with an Alice you never knew.
Join with Zenna to seek the truth as her death by magic grows closer.
Journey with Olivia as she crosses paths with a monster of the forest and runs for her life.
Watch Isobel summon the faerie to solve her problem of an unwanted husband.
Shiver as Doctor Killbride experiments with corpses to create life from death.
All that and more await within the pages.

Ten stories. Ten women.
Who will survive? Who will fall? And who will succumb to their inner evil?
Find out in Visions and Nightmares.

Warning: This book contains disturbing scenes that may be upsetting to some readers.

  1. Marge Simon says:

    Oh Mama! Ima thinking some bad stuff going to go down now!

    • Melissa Mendelson says:

      Maybe, instead of Eve, you’re Lilith. A creation of your own design that would reimagine the world. 🙂

  2. Way to use simple imagery to build foreboding – this line “Creation was very interesting to me.” speaks volumes – watch out world!
