Word and Question: gloved


Wilhelm moans softly
grasping, groping, relentless
mangled hand gloved

Original Sin
by Lisa Desrochers

Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.

Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk losing his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently-acquired guardian angel.

Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears—and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.

And not everyone will get out of it alive.

    I really love what you've done with the prompts! The mangled hand in a glove is just perfect! =D

    Thanks again for hosting the game this month. I liked thinking up a scary poem for a change, although I don't know whether my effort is worthy of yours!

  4. Whew! I'm not a horror fan -- I'm here because I love Word and Question -- and this certainly is a good representation of the genre.
    My post is up (http://salomeellen.blogspot.com/2011/08/word-and-question-15.html), and as I said there, I went with "supernatural".

    by my sweet beloved,
    before I am shoved,
    quickly her hands are gloved,
    for bare hands seem unloved.
