It’s a threat, coming ever so close with every passing second.
Feeds on everything it touches and leaves only ash behind, with no way back to what once was.

Burning through the pain, burning through the hurt, and slashing you right up in it’s grip.

It was just one piece of plastic.
Until it was caught
Around her neck.
Didn’t make it back to the beach
It seemed such a little thing

She has long black hair down to her waist, it sways like a graceful dancer in the soft autumn breeze. Her skin is dark, tan, but not that Cheeto dust look you get from a machine. She spends all her time outside, collecting rocks and planting cheery little flowers in her small garden.
The way she talks, it’s compelling. You have a craving to here her say more, and nothing in y...

You see, I am powerful. I have advantages like no other and the work...
I say jump, they say how high.
“Please, join me on your feet for prayer.” They all stand, scraping back their chairs in a cacophony of grating noise.

I say drink this, they say how much.
I stand before one, Joseph I remember his name to be, waiting with eager anticipat...
He looked out the castle window, enjoying the perfect view from the north tower, gazing at the forest and the distant mountains.
The cool breeze ruffled the top of his straight black hair, playing across his face, making him shiver. He missed the bustle of the town, he had more power than one person could need in a lifetime, but it came at a cost. Loneliness.
He could control minds. He didn’t k...
