STORY: Katabasis

Postby c_nordlander » Sat Mar 01, 2014 4:00 pm

A short horror story. A demon gives a human a chance to see Hell, but there's a bit of a twist. (Rather dark, but there's a point to it other than just gruesomeness.)

All constructive criticism is, as usual, greatly appreciated.

Note: the .doc and .odt documents are completely identical. The different filenames are just a fluke.

The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

I can vouch for the fact that horror writing is fun...nicely done.

Gorgeously dark, Chris! As always, I can't find a single thing wrong with it - it's perfect and gave me goosebumps.
