The Tomb

Inspired by Sadje’s What do you see #53 & VJ’s Weekly Challenge #118 – Frost

There was a chill in the air, a steely eeriness half exposed by the flame on the torch. Each nerve ending in my body standing ready as an ethereal frost escaped my lips. I felt as though a scream would soon erupt from the depths of my being.

The flame flickered wildly as cold gusts of wind licked the back of my neck. I felt a presence.

“Who disturbs my domain?” The screech of the crypt keeper assaulted me unexpectedly. I lost control of my senses, my bladder too.

Thank goodness it was dark and I was wearing black pants.

  1. Wow! What serendipity and synchronicity. This feels like the 1st scene in my Peach Leaf Portal — that LOL feels like a book cover now… and, the story wasn’t even conceived of that way. Was to simply be an autumnal themed mandala of a portal. The work takes on its own life.
