100 WORD SKITTLE // No Place for Pink on Komodo

The setting sun’s an angry red ball, though the beach is charmingly pink. A trick of the light? She cannot say.

Still, that isn’t her most pressing concern right now. Reptilians are all around, flaring nostrils and licking the hot air with their viciously forked tongues. They can sense her presence. It’s driving them crazy with lust.

She’s the Blood Queen. She gorges on the blood of men, and sometimes even wears their entrails for fun. Naturally, she’s going to attract attention from the local population.

Never mind. The odds are good. She’s the prize for whomever gets her first.

  1. Just something good coming from my random acces memory, volatile but not so much…
    “But ripples on the sweet pink water
    Reveal some company unthought of

    Three vermilion snakes of female face
    The smallest motion, filled with grace
    Muted melodies fill the echoing hall

    With their tongues, they test, taste and judge all that is mine
    They move in a series of caresses
    That glide up and down my spine”
