Eight Witches Brewing

On the Eighth Day of Creepfest, my true love gave to me...

Eight Witches Brewing
Seven Psychos Slashing
Six Demon Soldiers
Four Werewolves howling
Three French Fried Eyeballs
Two Corpses Walking
And a Zombie Hanging From a Christmas Tree.

The following is my entry for Tuesday Tales. I am not one for romances, but this one has a bittersweet ending.

She shuddered, recalling how Willimena had burst into her room, angrily calling for Sadie and Snickerdoodle to come see Theodora's betrayal.

"No sister of ours will mate with a werewolf," Willimena spat.

It was forbidden for a lycan to touch royalty. Theodora knew as they dragged John off, that they would kill him.

She drew a heart in the fog.

In the distance, there was howl and then silence.
