I Made Something With My Brain

TWO BLOG POSTS IN TWO DAYS! What is this MADNESS??

As with most insane things I do, I blame Myra McEntire and Victoria Schwab. See, they started this very cool short story blog called These Dark Things, and when they asked me if I'd like to contribute a story about witches, how could I resist?

Of course, it turns out that I am TOTALLY INCAPABLE of writing anything short, and this bad boy turned out to be nearly 2,000 words. Which is RIDICULOUS. Anyway, because Myra and Victoria are my friends, they were nice enough to overlook my literary elephanititis and post it anyway.

A little bit of background: I am OBSESSED with old-timey crime. Lizzie Borden, Jack the Ripper, H.H. Holmes? BRING IT. One of my favorite old-timey crimes (and I realize how weird that sounds) is the story of the Bender family. Basically, they were a super-creepy family from Germany who just showed up in Kansas and started killing people. By the time the town realized what was happening, the Benders were long gone. AND THEY WERE NEVER SEEN AGAIN!

Now, obviously, for someone who writes scary stories, this tale just jingles all kinds of bells. Add to that the fact that Kate Bender was allegedly some kind of medium, and all the spooky symbols people found drawn on the floors of the Bender house after the family disappeared, and...well, I think you can see why I just HAD to write a witchy story about the Benders!


Oooh.....sexy, witchy history...


Just FYI: This story can be seen as taking place in the HEX HALL universe, i.e., it plays by the same "rules" and demonglass- the substance, not the book!- makes an appearance.


So here it is. Hope you enjoy, despite the fact that it has NO KISSING. Also? NO FUNNY. I swear, if there weren't gory deaths in there, I'd think someone else had written it. ;-)
