Standing on the porch, of the ramshackle house, my gaze stays locked on Mathesis’s shadowy silhouette.
The clear skies overhead allow the radiance of the moon to splash over the vapid lands. It isn’t much, but enough for me to work with.
“Then come claim your prize, my sweet Amanda.”
His red eyes linger in the darkness. His voice taunts me, and whispers softly in my ears, trying to distract my thoughts, so I succumb to his devilish desires.
His minions growl and taunt me as well. Pairs of distant red eyes shift within the veil of night on my left and right.
I twirl the Kukri machete in my hand. If I have to plow through his legion of dead to have my blade taste Mathesis’s flesh once more, then I shall do it without pause.
