WeWriWa - You have to follow the rules!

Welcome to the Easter version of Weekend Writing Warriors.  Where you can peek into a  bunch of literary baskets of goodies and snack till your little hearts content (zero calories, what a deal).  Eg-genre's of every color to be found - sweet and lovey pink, dark and thrilling violets, zombie-ific greens, humor-filled yellow ones.  Some of the eggceptional stories even come in multiple colors as the love story contains humor, or the fantasy a thriller.  On occasion there're even those sparkly poetic ones!  Nobunny gets left behind.  So click the link here Easter Day WeWriWa Edition! to find more peeps to check out!  

Last week, we left off with Ravyn having some horrible visions...as a Mara (nightmare) has latched onto her hand.  We continue with the visions that she's seeing...

Then her father’s head blossomed into view, staring at her from the top of a pike.  The image shifted to little Kes burning on a pyre.  She heard screaming, painful tortured squeals--It took her a moment to realize they were her own.  “I gave you a gift,” she gasped, “You have to take it and go!”
“No,” it spat, “Sshe told uss, we can have you forever.”
“You took the coin, you have to leave us," she grunted.  "You have to follow the rules!”

It grinned again, razor sharp teeth glinting in the firelight, “The Darkness doesn’t give a damn about your pitiful ruless.”

Oh crap, this wasn't very eastery...sorry.  I hope your day is fantastic, and filled with chocolate, and family, and chocolate, and love, and oh yeah, don't forget the chocolate : )  I heard the Easter Bunny poops chocolate...I'm gonna go hunt him down!

  1. NICE! (And by that, of course, I mean jarring, scary, vivid and memorable. ;D)

  2. Oh, wow! This is getting darker and darker. I wonder what Ravyn is going to do now. Loved that last sentence, by the way. Great snippet! Hope you managed to have some chocolate ;-)

  3. Millie, I love your weekly intro bits. Your creativity has no bounds! If that's true about the Easter Bunny, let me know cuz my bunny sure doesn't poop *chocolate* !

    Great excerpt, even with the unEastery tone. Yup, the Dark doesn't follow anybody's rules, maybe not even its own! Hope you pick up from here next week.

  4. This sure is going down a dark path. I felt that inner turmoil. The voice of her thoughts was kinda creepy. Nice 8!

  7. I love the last line. And no, it's not very eastery, but one can only take so many pastel bunnies and tulips and such. Very nice snippet!

  8. Argh! Bad situation to be in! Dark and exciting, really good!

  9. Love the last line! Kind of an "Oops, now what?" moment :)

  10. That last line is a zinger, Millie! This story is taking a dark turn. She's tough. She can handle it. And I pity the soul she goes after when it's time to give them what they deserve. Good snippet, Millie!

    The Easter Bunny poops chocolate? My granddaughter came in today and proudly roclaimed that the Easter Bunny pooped jelly-beans on their kitchen floor... lol.

    Hope your day was wonderful--and involved lots of chocolate. :-)

  11. What a turn, Millie. I shivered with fright; so many dark twists and turns after the funny His Nibs. Save us, please.
