Monday Mixer: Play it again Sam...


After two great weeks with Monday Mixer I was apprehensive about participating this week, but I was inspired once again by such great prompts, I kept to just three and I hope that I have used them well enough.

Tell me what you think...but first...

Play it again Sam..

He stood, triumphant in the moonlight, looking down into the ossuary.  He was able to cast a shadow like no other and he wielded this power now as he beamed hungrily at the sight before him.

As each year passed he never grew tired of this ritual, if anything he had begun to thirst for this, and the wait had grown too long.

With his left foot he gently kicked the ladies reticule and watched as it tumbled down to join her where she lay, instantly drawing in the blood that lay in pools around her severed torso.

He gazed, enthralled, as he recollected the symphony he had conducted from her screams; as the pitch had altered with her shock, her fear, her terror and her despair.

He was getting close to perfect and he relished the prospect of further rehearsals until he would be ready for the main act.
