Just to celebrate, I thought I would post my short piece, titled Death’s Shadow. It’s available now in the collection 100 RPM: One Hundred Stories inspired by Music. It’s a fantastic collection. Tales so short you can eat them like candy for bed, but they will stay with you well into the daylight hours.
There is even some music for you to listen to at the end, the song that inspired the piece. Each story in 100 RPM is told in words, but came from an idea inspired by a song. Tres cool non? Even better, each story is told in 100 words, tiny bite sized short stories, even episodes, you can read anytime, anywhere.
And when the music is going, dance a little. 🙂

Upon waking, she spoke: “Is there a word for what I am?” She glanced at him, her eyes red with unshed blood.
He took in the paleness of her complexion, the blue veins like a roadmap under white skin. “Yes, there are many.” He took her hand in his. “But that matters not what they call us.”
“What have you done to me?” She asked.
“My heart died when you passed on.” He told her. “I have found a way for our hearts to live beyond death.”
“We are not beyond death.” She told him. “We are now deaths shadow.”
