With a growl that comes from deep within his chest, fury radiating from every pore of his being, he begins to froth. Using the chain wrapped around his arm and her throat, he raises her level with his eye. With the other hand, he snaps her right wrist between his forefinger and thumb. A slight groan escapes her before she can contain it. A smile begins to spread upon his face.
Cupping her ass with his free hand, he presses her body hard against his own, his want throbbing against her. He leans forward, whispers in her ear, “So you do feel. I’ve heard an angel is an extremely… erotic creature. Perhaps I have been going about your discipline all wrong.” He slowly licks her shoulder, her neck, the side of her face; he begins to boom with laughter – intent all too clear in his eyes.
She returns his slight smile as he runs a razor-sharp talon over her lips, tearing them to shreds. Blood begins to trickle down her chin; he laps it clean. She unfurls an obsidian wing; he stares at it in wanton lust. With lightning speed, she uses the tip to pluck his left eyeball from its socket. There is barely a moment of resistance as the muscles cling to the orbit before tearing away.
Screaming in agony, he releases her and she tumbles to the stone floor. Cupping his empty socket, he screams, “You whore!”
Lying on the floor, she begins laughing manically.
“You fucking whore! I’ll see you dead for this!”
Gently, she places the eyeball in her mouth, blood still oozing from her slashed lips. Through peals of laughter, she positions her new prize between her teeth. As he watches in horror, she smiles brightly and begins to chew.
Darting forward once more, her wing tip slams into his other eye with an audible pop, then carves it lengthwise with a single stroke. She leaves this orb in place to heal useless and deformed; a reminder of her for the days to come.
Rising to her feet, she walks toward the dais while flippantly asking, “You wish to see me dead, do you?” With a mirthless chuckle, she leans in and whispers, “I don’t think you’ll be seeing much of anything…”

Thank you!! Yeah, when I discussed the details with my eye doctor to make sure it was a viable sitch, she was a little grossed out too… Then again, she’s not really into horror – go figure. 😉 lol

Beautifully horrible. Horribly beautiful. I love your short pieces, Nina. Yay for Coffin Hop time!

I would have lovedto take part, but there was an unexpected family crisis back in September, that rolled on into October. I had stories partially written for Halloween publications that didn’t get finished- aargh! V annoying! As you say, there’s always next year… 😉
October 25th, 2014 at 11:12 am
Sorry to hear there was a family crisis. I hope all has worked itself out as best it could! Hugs, Karen!

It’s mostly sorted now, thanks, but it played havoc with my writing schedule! Grr. 😉
October 25th, 2014 at 7:55 pm
If all is well, then I am happy for you and your family!! 😀
October 24th, 2014 at 1:30 pm
An amazing write.
October 25th, 2014 at 12:08 am
Thank you! It’s been a while since I’ve bumped into you. I hope you’re doing well! I have a new goodie going up each day, varied as always, but trending more towards the horror vein – not as maudlin as I usually write. (but there is one tucked in there – I couldn’t resist) 🙂

Don’t mess with angels.
October 25th, 2014 at 12:10 am
Nope… not this one. lol The DA is a cruel, sadistic creature! Sadly, this is her only appearance during Coffin Hop this year.
October 24th, 2014 at 5:46 pm
I always love your words:)
Can you believe another year flew by??
October 25th, 2014 at 12:11 am
Thanks you, Anne! It has flown by so quickly!
Have fun hopping, too! It can’t be all work, right? (she asks optimistically) lol
October 24th, 2014 at 8:43 pm
It was so good I tried to cup my own ass but something was missing. Damn! Just not the same I guess.
October 25th, 2014 at 12:17 am
Blaze, my cat jumped three feet into the air when I let out a booming laugh reading your comment! So… I mean, how was it? LMAO.—- Thank you, I’m both happy and frightened to have inspired you to grab your own ass! 😀
Have you ever played ‘Cards Against Humanity’? I say we all get a pack and play online one night. It is definitely your kind of game!! *still laughing* ;]~
