MONSTER

 By Veronica Marie Lewis-Shaw

Her pleas for mercy went unheeded… the words only a slur over her bruised lips… as her tormentors drug her body down the dark corridor…

Exhausted, she slipped under…

Consciousness returning… cold, uneven stone beneath her battered body…

Fingers and toes groping… everywhere she reached out… hot, sharp edges…

The darkness surrounded her like a moat of pain…

The air in the room was hot and fetid… it pressed against her frail chest… Death’s invisible hand squeezing the breath from her…

The girl’s last thought… the door had been unlocked…

She never left the car unlocked…

He was back…

Her long fascination with noir fiction prompted Veronica to try her own hand at writing fiction several years ago. She has been published in Pulp Metal Magazine, The Lost Children: A Charity Anthology, the horror anthology 100 Horrors, from Cruentus Libri Press, Nightfalls: an End of the World anthology, Drunk On The Moon 2: A Roman Dalton anthology and Gloves Off: Near To the Knuckle's debut anthology. Veronica has also appeared in the inaugural issue of Literary Orphans magazine and her horror/urban fantasy short story SOUL TAKER was recently chosen for inclusion in Lily Childs' february femmes fatales, an urban fantasy/horror anthology. Veronica counts among her mentors - Carole A Parker, Lily Childs, Paul D Brazill, Richard Godwin, Joyce Juzwik and Vicki Abelson. She is currently working on the third draft of her first novel – a memoir – as well the second draft of her first fiction novel, a fantasy novel and the publication of a collection of her flash fiction and short stories. Lily's The Feardom and Vicki Abelson's Women Who Write Facebook writing group have both been a tremendous source of support and inspiration for Veronica.
