The Ravagers

Their snake eyes crawled over me .I recoiled. Their filthy minds probed into my very core, hungry maggots devouring my very essence. I flinched. Finally, they tore into my nubile body, leeching the last vestiges of consciousness from my blanched, ravaged soul.

This is my response to this week’s ultimate question at Gargleblaster #161. The challenge was to answer the ultimate question, “Is something crawling on me?” in exactly 42 words. What a coincidence ‘cos I have been fighting a skin rash for the past few days but managed to keep my itchy Β hands at bay Β while writing,lol!

    • Aww,thanks Karen-coming from such an accomplished writer like you,I take it as a huge compliment! Btw,your’s was too funny-got my vote πŸ™‚

  2. Intense and powerful are two words I kept seeing in other comments – they perfectly describe what I thought when I read this. I don’t have a rash, but man, the urge to scratch and run away squealing is strong πŸ™‚

      • Thank you Ted-wishes mean a lot-Doc is happy with the progress I am making though as I had suspected my thyroid prob has reshaped itself into Hashimoto’s disease-Doc seemed upbeat as it seems my “bubbly” personality will see me through,lol!Well,let us see what the test reports say when I see him next in July πŸ™‚
