Haunted Drabble/Darkspell Spookafest

If any holiday is made for not one but TWO blogfests, it's Halloween!  First up is Tara Tyler's Haunted Drabble.  You can enter your own 100 word spooky story by leaving a link to your post in a comment at Tara's.

The Dangers of Twilight

This wasn’t like the books. He didn’t sparkle in the sunlight. He told her he loved her—that part of the fable was true—but he was lying.

All tenderness ended the moment she entered his chamber; her screams weren’t those of the ecstasy she’d anticipated.

Her agony pleased him.

He chained her to his bed, her throat unblemished, and whispered, “You’re mine.”

Hours later, the click of approaching boots indicated his return. She gripped the splintered post in her cuffed, but now free hands, praying Meyers was also wrong about the effect of a stake through a vampire’s heart.

~.~.~.~.~

Today is also the super-exciting launch of Elizabeth Mueller's novel, Darkspell, and she's hosting a Spookafest, in which we reveal what we'd do if we had all the magic in the world. 

My first order of business would be to parse up the magical abilities and bequeath them to others I trust to use them responsibly.  We'd form our own Order of the Phoenix/Justice League type of thing to fight evil.

What I'd keep for myself would be teleportation ability.  I always say I love to travel, but that's not entirely truthful.  What I like is being other places---traveling there, not so much.  I'd also like to be able to teleport objects, like food from Feed My Starving Children, directly to orphanages and poverty stricken areas, bypassing hefty freight charges and corrupt governments. KAPOW!

Darkspell:
Winter Sky believes she is everything ordinary . . .until she is kissed by Alex Stormhold. As seer of Stormhold Coven, Alex is sworn to be Winter’s protector against the darkness that hunts her. Violently thrust into a magical realm she always thought impossible, she stumbles upon a disturbing secret of her own. Will love prove thicker than magic?

I loved your 100 word spooky story! At first I thought you were posting an excerpt from a book out there. You should turn this into a full-length novel!!!!

Thank you for the shout out, Nicki!

Happy Halloween! <3

Hi! I'm popping over from Theresa's blog. I was wondering why Edward sparkled in the sunlight too; I also wondered why the Cullen's house had such big windows. Wouldn't they want to keep them covered up? Or perhaps they like to sparkle?

Riveting entry.. Well done Nicki... You could give Meyers are run for her money....

Happy Halloween to you too!

I love the idea of teleportation.... I could use it to get me to Florida in seconds as opposed to two days in the car driving...

I leave on Thursday morning....
