The Wood


She had a body as a fairy  and lived  there for all her life.... Surround by trees.... Trees so so dark and tal that she almost could see the sun... So... She is habituated with shadows that compose all her world... And shadows, we know, they are not so simple...  they are the pure darkest.... With silent moves, whispers , deep lake ... the mist... That terrified her  but not anymore.... 

She deal very good with this sensations and more  growing in her chest... Corrupted still... mind and soul...

You only could crave something if you know or if you see... A person...  a thing.... And she never desired anything because the wood  were inside her ... And the wood gave to her all that she needs... since now...

 A  dangerous eagerness to talk, to touch and be touched intensify inside her.... A fever... A thirst  ... appeased by her hands... Sometimes hurting herself but satiated ..... She don't know what  bruises is ... even  why her discolored skin...  but only the end of the desire... complete, total....


She starts to create something or someone as a company 

...  she saw  herself in mirrored puddles... 

First the feet ~needing  to see  more~

As she  crawl and bend over

Creeping and begin   

In my middle please in my middle ...


They find her ... and gave to her a dress

the first view, the first sight of herself

in a mirror.....

The light, the sun

burning her eyes and niveous skin

nails 

drawing a path in a man's body

taken to the woods

Now... She talks

~he took me to wander into dark night~
i thought…one more effort….

along the way he asked me
thou hast innocent eyes?

in silent walking… the rustle of my petticoats announcing


yes….innocents….

still…leading me to wander into a dark wood
despite all dangerous signs

along the way he asked me
thou hast hidden desires?

in silent i was

yes…hidden desires…

but the treacherous moon arises
suddenly….

catching me in surprise
a glimpse of me appears

bringing light to his blurry eyes….

astonishment and fright

in both hearts….

touching the blue vein with smooth fingers
a delight  ~finishing my pain~

drowning an endless thirst
no time for answers still

my fangs, hands, body on him
Muscle stiffness ~deep breath~

…Oh!

let me finish with you quickly
thou need that and i too

~he took me to wander into dark night~

Trahelion: While I started this tale hoping for an actual Anthropophagi monster story, I was quickly reminded that humanity is by far the most frightening beast. The reason being, we're real and there is not much we haven't done.Great work here, and at the end, I was expecting the lady narrating to be lying...

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

elssxa: I love everything about this story. I want more...more...more. This author is superb. I am fascinated by his amazing work. I give him five stars.

Kat Paul: I know you mentioned thinking of making this into the introductory chapter of a longer story... What you have so far definitely intrigues me! My favorite bit is the twist about poor Bergen giving the creature the inspiration for its identity. What would interest me the most in the rest of the s...

Tobi Doyle MacBrayne: I was so impressed with this piece. The slow degradation of the main character into a dark and crazy place is beautifully written. I liked that the characters physical descriptions were not described because it gave me a sense that it could be someone I know or love. The grief that breaks the m...
