Six Sentence Sunday - December 5th

There's some dark magic going on--even after
Martin, the grand wizard, fought against the alchemist and severed his head to free Heike. From my novelette, Celestial Trigon, a free read on my website. http://www.marshaamoore.com


****
Suddenly, a rat darted from just next to the severed head to a position under the table and left a trail of bloody footprints. The alchemist's blood was now within the evil circle, feeding the black magic. Even in death the alchemist's dark power rose up. The crazed eyes opened and the mouth let out a chilling, diabolical laugh.
         Without the gag, Heike screamed.
            Outside, there were yells and crashes, sounds of battle.
