Once again I am sharing from my soon to be available for preorder short story, The Opal Ring, from Tell-Tale Publishing's 2016 Horror Anthology. Jasmine, having found the lost opal ring of King Solomon that contains a jinn, and discovered that his wishes come with a price, to feed his thirst for gemstones. Having quickly run out as his addiction knows no bounds, she obtained some from her uncle's suite, and the jinn has just cast a spell to remove her image from the hotel video cameras...
“What spell did you use?” Jasmine asked, curiosity making her bold.
Ornias paused. He lowered the already enlarged ruby and bent forward to gaze at her intently. Grabbing her wrist, he turned it over and held it within his hand and studied the henna-hued likeness of Sheba, the sun-rendered pentagram, the little kitty paw prints, and then looked again, deep into her eyes, her soul, and said, “So, you are a witch who wishes to be a sorceress, it would seem. Why did you not just voice this wish aloud, mistress?”
“I-I. No one knows of this. I have never…”
“But I, Ornias, most powerful of all magic casters should have sensed this flicker of power secreted away within you, mistress. I was too consumed by my own addictions to notice what lurks in the hearts of those around me. I have been too long in solitude it would seem.”
I hope you enjoyed the snippet I posted for Elizabeth this week. All this magic makes me want to go sit next to my new friend, Fang. Elizabeth got him as a present from the Haunted Forest. Have you ever been there? It sounds scary. He is a skeleton wolf and he howls every time I bark too loud or race around the couch and bump his foot. It makes Elizabeth laugh because I really like Fang and always run over and watch his red eyes glow and listen to him howl. I wish I could howl like that! Don't forget to visit the other wonderful Weekend Writing Warriors and #Snippet Sunday authors to find some more great reads!
Available for Preorder on September 25th & Available in Digital and Print on October 15th!
I blog there the 18th of each month!
