“They Come Back”

Scott L Vannatter – February 17, 2015

Carol sat in the old, rickety rocking chair, silent and still, looking out the open window, the breeze from the afternoon shower still hanging.

She thought about the old woman, the pact, the ingredients (looking at her still-bleeding hand), and the coming results – and she shuddered while smiling.

She had loved grandmother so much, grandfather only slightly less; both had been her world.

That world had shattered with the lightning strike on the barn while the two were tending the horses; snuffed out when the fire was over.

Now, she looked as two dark figures staggered slowly and unsteadily across the open field, and she wished her deal was broken.

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
