This story has been sitting in my drafts for far too long. With Halloween approaching, I thought it was time to get it finished already. And since I haven’t posted a Monster story in a while, it seemed as good an occasion as any. 🙂
Once again, the credit for this plot bunny goes to Kim Iverson for sharing a quote that made me want to destroy romance for all time: “Make her fall in love with you over and over again.” No idea who to attribute it to, but thank you kindly for inspiring this tale of horror.
A few days ago, I came across this meme about Adam, Eve, and Lilith. I had heard the name Lilith before, but had no real knowledge of who she was in the grand scheme of things, so reading the meme was kind of eye opening.
Of course, I don’t take things at meme-value, so I Googled it and ended up on this page, which compiles a history of Lilith’s mythology, stretching back to the days of Babylon. Tons of information just on that one page there. It’s a fascinating (long) read, if you have the time.
Anyway, the tale inspired the next story in my Here There Be Monsters series, which I now share with you in its first draft, unedited form.
It wouldn’t be horror without a little bloodshed. Or a lot… I read about this a long time ago and it’s been on my mind ever since. It was bound to come out in a story sooner or later, so here we go. Allow me to introduce you to the cutest ball of adorableness in all the fluffy worlds:
This seems to be becoming a trend, so I figure why not take advantage of inexplicably random flashes of inspiration? You may have noticed a new list of links in the sidebar titled Here There Be Monsters. Every link there is a short story posted on this blog. I’m predominantly a novelist, but every once in a while I get a story idea that isn’t quite enough for such a high word count, but it’s still itching to be told. Lately, those ideas seem to be interrelated in one way or another, so I decided to put them all in one section.
