UNDER A KILLING MOON
By Veronica Marie Lewis-Shaw
With the moon in half eclipse, they came out of the woods… anthropophagous creatures hungering for living flesh.
Kimoku stepped into the clearing… letting the katana dangle from her hand for a moment… then brought it up… moving toward the undead.
Razor-sharp blade slicing through the air… crimson line blossoms across hell-spawned torso.
Spinning around, she swings the blade again… wading through the grisly beasts… leaving steaming entrails to dangle in the moonlight, dripping scarlet.
Stiff bow… she moves again… blade swings higher… emaciated heads topple… dark blood jets into the night air.
“You are avenged, my father.”
