Darkness

“Life of Shadows”

By Scott L Vannatter – September 5, 2014

Sandra closed the flesh-covered book and thought through all she had just read, wondering how much of it she comprehended.

Loosening the clasp at her throat, she allowed the silky, black robe to drop to the ground, the night sky being her only cover.

She raised a nightshade petal, deadly if used incorrectly, and kissed it ever so slightly while murmuring the incantation from the diabolical tome.

Mists began to swirl, the wind picking up, the night air growing even colder, her skin pimpling up, and a moan escaping from the nearby woods, as the last word issued forth from her lips.

Slowly, then faster, all light for dozen of miles whirled around her body, forming a tornado that spun all the brightness into her mouth, sucking the surrounding countryside into utter darkness while her body now shone like the sun.
