UNDER A KILLING MOON
By Veronica Marie Lewis-Shaw
Staring at the massive wooden door wouldn’t bring Ian back… Moira knew that. He’d gone up from the cellar over an hour ago… a loud thud… then silence.
A neighbor had rung up Moira… she’d seen someone on the prowl last night… staggering around her backyard… drunk on the moonlight.
A killing moon Eileen had said…
Pushing up the heavy door, Moira peered over the edge… Ian lay crumpled in sanguineous tartan… hellish creature holding his head… a wet, crunching sound.
Mouth glistening with gore… the pale, bloodied zombie hissed…
The door dropped with a crash… Moira began to pray.
