The Frightening of Emily Bean: Attempt Number Two


Becoming a full-fledged demon was not an easy a task as one might imagine and Moribund the Shadow Thing was attempting demonhood. His target had unnerved him so utterly upon their first encounter he disappeared into the abyss entirely.

Now, it was time to try again.  He must frighten Emily Bean or risk losing his chance altogether.  He slithered from under her closet door and arched himself most sinisterly over her.

“Read me a story,” Emily smiled, flicking on her nightlight.

Moribund sagged.  Not again.  That cherub’s face…

Opening the book, he sighed,‘What was the rabbit late for,’ wondered Alice.”

Maybe this demon-thing wasn’t in the cards.

The above is my entry for the 100-Word-Challenge. The prompt this week was writing a piece with ….‘What was the rabbit late for,’ wondered Alice….. in it.  Next week the last line of each entry will be taken by another writer and used as a prompt for that challenge.
