Readers! Readers! Guess what? … I’M CAUGHT UP!
It’s the 13th here in Australia, but my sooper-logistical brain informs me with its smartness that Australia is several hours ahead of America, meaning that the 12th Challenge is being posted today, meaning that your inbox’s will be a little less weighed down. Good news all round, huh?
Here is the first Challenge, but now, enjoy today’s post, in all its catched-up glory…
.. Celebration ..
Her lips upon his, smearing scarlet—he cringes. She presses against him, tongue teasing his ear.
He pulls away; talon-like fingernails claw at his chin.
“I’ll tell her.” Sickly-sweet voice.
“Leave me, darling, and you’ll regret it.”
Sullen nod. She smiles like death.
“A new start… Just you and me.” Tugs at his wedding band.
The ring slides from his finger. Desperate snarl—he lunges. She steps back, startled, holds the ring close.
Happy New Year!
As the world celebrates, he watches her plummet over the balcony, ring still trapped within ruby-red talons.
