Good Riddance July and Hello August!
Anyone else happy that July is gone and over and August is here? Anyone?
I am! I had major brain fog all throughout the month of July and could barely concentrate on anything beyond kid and work, and the games I played to decompress from the day!
The weather also probably added to the franticness and lack of concentration and motivation. Waffling between 95 degree highs and insane thunderstorms, July was certainly something and unfortunately it has been that way all through out this summer.
Now that it’s August and school is about to start, I am going to try and shake off this fog and get into some self-improvement and most importantly…some writing! I plan on having a regular schedule of Vella episodes AND also for accountability, I am going to share snippets of writing at least three times a week!
Yeah, let’s start small.
Note: If my snippet of the writing is SFW and rated PG-13 (so not as dark and gorey) then I will share it with all of you. However, snippets that are NSFW and/or reach a Abyssal Black Hole darkness level will be for Paid Subscribers. So to get into ALL of my insane writing, why not upgrade?
Sorry couldn’t help the plug! Without further ado…
"You. Give me that."
That voice was as venomous as the eyes glaring down at him, a piercing serpentine gaze that shot fear into his heart.
He forced down the heavy stone in lodged in his throat, gripping the plush brown bear tightly against his chest. It's yellow gem like eyes glimmered against the dark fur like gold; his own eyes, hazel with rings of amber, sparkling with moisture. Emerald eyes honed in on him, staring down with amused loathing at his silent defiance.
Yet the voice, shrill with a hiss, held nothing but contempt.
"You don't deserve it. I bet your daddy stole it from one of houses he cleans."
He shook his head, a screech blocked from escaping his mouth by a wall of teeth. Hands reached out of the darkness; long spindly fingers tipped with shimmering verdant nails snapped towards his prized possession.
This was the first gift his father was able to buy him. A rare handmade toy bought with hard earned money. Why should he give it up?
"You're trash! You don't deserve it!"
He had backed into a wall and finally a scream left his lips as his elbows began to sink into the undulating plaster, forcing his arms apart. His fingers dug into the bear, the fluffy innards shifting with his desperation.
It was futile.
A mouth, in the shape of a diamond, snapped forward. Long fangs, dripping with venom and saliva, pierced into the chest of the bear. He swore he heard his teddy scream and with the wall slowly consuming his arms and the fearsome jaw locked onto the plush belly of his bear, he didn't stand a chance.
A whimper escaped his quivering bottom lip as he could hear the tearing of threads snapping. Tears dribbled down his cheeks from his eyes as his fingers released, the bear recoiled into the abyss. He screamed, crying out for his toy, the wall sucking him in further. It undulated and squeezed as he was swallowed further.
"This belongs to me now."
Can’t wait to get more written to share!
Books Worth A Mention
Be careful what you fantasise. Your dreams may just come true...
There is no force more compelling on Earth or in the parallel realms than forbidden love. It beguiles and inevitably self-fulfills. It finds a way. Right or wrong, forbidden love can be a very beautiful thing, but that beauty is a blade, an it has a razor's edge.
I hope you enjoyed reading this week and found an amazing book or two to read this weekend!
Stay safe, stay healthy, and always, Stay Happy!
