Hi all, sorry it’s been a while – I live in an Amusement Park!
Here’s a tale that just might make you think, a little maybe! 😉
Thank you Angela for another cracking picture prompt! (source here).

The Evil That Finds Me
I’m hanging on to every breath I take, the beating of my heart pounding in my chest.
I can hear their howls, the demonic noises coursing through my blood, fracturing my bones.
I cannot make a sound.
I cannot move until I hear them at a distance. I need to get back, and return quick to my own realm, not this, not theirs, not this….
I hear a sound, my breath holds. Then a hand grabs me, yanking me with its force to my knees, until I am at its foot.
“Little, light one” it snarls down on me. I cannot look. This is it. Me. I’m theirs.
Thunder booms and cracks like fire and ice. The Heaven I know begins to fade, leaving me, I cannot control…
The air begins to glisten.
The Demon releases its grip. It screams, piercing my ears with so much pain, then its last breath is gone .
I am being gently pulled. Back, back toward the light, back toward my realm.
Angels cradle all around me. I am back!
Back behind that very thin line: That thin line which separates good and evil.
Forever, I shall now tread very carefully.
