It's a TEASE!

This is quite possibly the shortest tease you will ever find on this here blog, but seeing as how it's the first scene I've written in my current as yet untitled WiP, it really should be the first tease.  Don't you think?  Exactly my point ;)


I never expected there to be so much blood. Smeared across the front of my shirt. Dripping off the tips of my fingers. Pooling on the hardwoods at my feet. Splattered over the toes of the sneakers that had up until an hour ago been pristine, brand-new-shoe white. Coating my whole world in a scarlet sea of insanity.

Raising the knife still clutched in my right hand, I can’t help but stare at the crimson tinge the blade has attained. Shiny. Wet. Taunting me.

My work is not done. I cannot truly be free until it’s finished.

Eyes sliding closed, the knife lowers again, slicing through already ravaged flesh, tearing away every bit of the life I’d known and replacing it with this new existence. One where I am safe. I am new. I am whole.

I am free.

So, what do we think?  Did I get your attention? Until next week, folks! :)
