“Honey, I brought sushi.”
She picked a juicy morsel with her bare fingers.
Dinner was fresh as our relationship was stale.
“Really, honey, you ought to learn how to use chopsticks.”
Threads of saliva and meat juice dribbled down her chin.
“Fuck’s sake, Judy, you’re acting like a beast!”
“You’re ashamed of me? Is that it?” she growled, her expression savage.
We stared at our dinner…
The organs sat neatly inside the ripped torso… like a nice bento box.
I handed her a napkin. “We’ll dine out tomorrow. Promise.”
Finally, she smiled, strands of Japanese flesh dangling between her teeth.
Hi everyone! I’m late… again. :) Well, as I mentioned in a previous post, our city was affected by the typhoon and we have no electricity for at least 1 week. But though my time on the PC is extremely limited
(thank God for diesel generators! lol), I’m glad that I didn’t miss this week’s challenge. :) Well, stay safe and tc. xo
I’m alive! Yes. I’ve managed to survive typhoon Glenda (Rammasun). Sure the entire house shook violently for hours and the city currently looks like crap, fallen trees everywhere… and there’ll be no electricity for like 1-2 more weeks but we’ll survive! We Filipinos have always been strong. Still, we need your prayers… especially the families and individuals that are greatly affected and have lost a lot. Some people lost EVERYTHING. Please pray for them.
I do have some happy news. A new horror anthology is out. NO SIGHT FOR THE SAVED– featuring the illustrations of brilliant artist Niall Parkinson and stories and poems from various writers. My 4,000-word short story “The Father” is more like a Dark Fantasy piece than a horror tale. I hope you grab a copy and enjoy it. :) An illustration for each story… This book is the complete package! Kindle and print version available at Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LRQ6VKY/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_1NcXtb1W0MBY8

Curdled clouds came… hovering, descending…
ingesting everything in their way.
The world was painted in black, white and gray.
I opened my mouth and out poured a soundless scream
as if we existed in a silent film.
Then people started floating…
Their bodies bloating,
Fat limbs flailing,
Dancing in an eerie pantomime…
Intent on leaving me behind.
I cried after the corpse balloons as they flew towards the ashen sky,
gazing down at me with pupilless eyes.
Their decaying mouths opened and closed in an inaudible song.
Then I remembered my last birthday wish…
For everyone to leave me alone.
Hi! Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes last week. I’m really sorry that I was unable to return some of the visits. I’ll read as many stories as I can this week. xox <3
Hello! Thank you for the warm birthday wishes. I had a lovely celebration with friends and family. :) I received plenty of cool presents and now I have a little something for you! (Well, actually, it’s from JWK Publishing and this has nothing to do with my birthday. haha) :)
We are Dust and Shadow Kindle version is FREE on Amazon from today until July 7. (check price, it should be $0.00) This anthology features the works of various horror authors including my flash fiction piece: “The End of the Tunnel”.
What happens after we die?
P.S. It would be wonderful if you could write an Amazon/ Goodreads review. It would really mean a lot to the authors. :) Enjoy! xo

I lived in a castle by the stormy sea.
And the sound that kept me awake each night was not the rage in father’s voice…
Or mother’s beaten whimpering…
It was thunder. Just thunder.
I believed in fairytales…
In stout castles, gallant kings…
Though I’ve seen more than my fair share of dreadful things.
When I grew up, all the men that I loved were charming princes, valiant knights…
Until they weren’t.
But I’ll always believe in fairytales…
Because once, it was all that I had.
My silly nose buried in my silly books
Inhaling each fantasy until it felt like reality.
Hi! I miss FF! And yeah, I’m a little rusty. But I haven’t been feeling well lately. :( I originally wrote a horror story for this week but since today is my 2*th birthday, a memoir seemed more appropriate. If you want to get me something for my birthday, an amazon/goodreads review of 100 Nightmares would be wonderful. LOL :) seriously, email me and I’ll send you a copy (firstname.lastname@example.org) Happy 4th of July! xoxo <3
