Not Him. --by Krishtina Mayers

"I'm there."

That's what she'd seen on her phone.

"I'll be there soon."

That was her reply.

They were millennials. It didn't feel like that, though. It felt like they were a bunch of teenagers.

Rebecca exited the camper and locked the door behind her. Her loose boots squished on the damp grass as she descended from the metal steps.

Off into the night. There was a thick moon out, but she still needed her phone's light.

Her clamshell cell phone was in her hand, shut and with the flashlight on. The pig shaped suction cup on one side helped her keep a better grip. She walked. She went down to the neighbor's pond.


Smooth, masculine laughing.

Rebecca's heart tingled and skittered. She twitched and gasped. Her light zoomed to the left. Her boots halted. Her eyes popped as they searched for anything strange.


Rebecca's skin cooled as she mentally told herself it was fine. Besides, if there was trouble, it didn't matter. She'd soon be in the embrace of a martial artist she was madly in love with. He'd beat ass for her.

Her stride quickened. The empty field was the next landmark. Then the bare road without a single pavement marking. Then all the way down that road to the graveyard. That's where her man would be.



In her ear!

Rebecca yelped and spun around. Her light broke through. Up ahead, in the distance she saw it. It was right where she'd been. She could see the damn camper! She could see him! A man!

Not her man!!

A tall shadow, a great figure, a featureless man.

With peculiar extensions growing from each side of his head, branching, splitting, silent.

A proud stance. A sturdy stance.

Rebecca screamed.

Turned and ran.

She couldn't go back to the camper. He was there. The demon. The thing!

Her feet slipped in her boots. She tripped over. Kicked her boots away. Only socks could protect her tiny feet. She felt the wet grass and dirt as she pushed herself up and continued. Her breath scraped inside herself. Her fingers were tight claws on her phone. Her knees hurt. Her calves ached. She was crying.

Then she was knocked over. Flipped over. Made to look up at the thing. Stare up at the thing. Her breath was gone. She coughed. Saliva and mucus splattered out.

The flashlight showed her just enough. A strange face. Spotted fur. A black nose with large, rounded nostrils. Wild, black eyes. A long tongue sticking out of a huge mouth. Uneven teeth that didn't even seem to be in the correct places. Curling antlers with sharp points.

She felt his palm sink into her face. She smelled sweat and musk. Her soft feet rammed into the thick muscle above her. Her nails dug in as she scratched. The fur glided unger those dull, weak nails. Loose and powdery soil was disturbed and dusted over her.

She wanted to fight him off.

She couldn't.

The Ghost Of You - By Alicia R. Norman

The ghost of you still lingers

in the corners of my mind

leaving drops of memory

and sinful thought behind

the moonlit path of darkened rose

a patch of warm sunshine

the ghost of you, it often haunts

and blackness of my mind

A warm embrace

a sinful touch

a blood drop here

just oh so much

Tickled sweet

a candy lick

The smell of which

I shan't forget

make no mistake

leave not behind

a million ghosts

without confine
