Thursday photo prompt – Mask #writephoto

Sorry to hear about your exploding computer Sue!

Here is this week’s Writephoto challenge.

The circle of thirteen was complete.
Amid the orgy of naked lusting bodies, the chanting began, calling the Devil to rise.
They offered their sacrifice and as the blood flowed, the coals erupted, hot and fiery, a forbearer of another life.
The flame shaped, a tail and horns clearly became defined.
The crescendo gained momentum, the ritual almost complete, as Lucifer’s eyes glared
from the heated mass.

Surprise as his ally, a lone figure rushed forward with a phial of Holy Water.
He threw it into the flame, holding his crucifix aloft.
The screams were heard above the cacophony of worship as the image receded back into the fire, angry, unfulfilled and incomplete.
The disciples, their circle and trance now broken, became disoriented and confused as they disbanded into the night.
The High Priest sank to his knees in the hollow, another rising thwarted.
Red eyes mocked him from the undergrowth.
His followers would regroup and try again at the next full moon.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
