This week I’m going to share a short excerpt from Cemetery Party, The Wardens first season finale episode. If you haven’t heard me going on about it quite yet, The Wardens is an ongoing series of contemporary/urban fantasy short stories, with a relatable main cast and a host of supernatural beings that you’ll want to know more about. Enjoy the excerpt ^_^:
~ Black and red mingled, pouring into cracks in the stone floor, combining to create a weird kind of molasses that dribbled and flowed away from opened mouths and wounds. Bits of meat, not from the dinner table, but belonging to those strewn haphazardly across the floor, became one in death, as their owners never really had been in life.
A few retreated, not once looking back to save friend or foe, some looked around dazed, not yet sure what had actually happened, clinging to stubs that were once limbs, while others still, tried only to muster the strength that would allow them to push fallen comrades off their own bodies.
Erin choked on her breath, then swallowed hard. She could hear footsteps in the distance closing in fast and she trembled, not with fear, but overwhelmed by the injustice of it all. Maybe if someone had told her, shown her how to control herself, maybe then . . .~
Enjoy this series of exciting quick reads and I’ll see you all Friday!
