What the hell was that? (excerpt of a potential longer story)

[It’s been a while since I’ve written anything that wasn’t a rant, but the other night an partial idea came to me so I’ve written an excerpt from the idea that I may or may not explore further but its a promising start, and i may still have the abilty to write, maybe. I’d like to get some feedback on it. If you could let me know what you think would be appreciated. Cheers Colin.]



“It’s so good to see you again, I have missed you more than you can know.”

“I missed you too.” She replied as she walks over sits on my lap and kisses me. it felt good to feel her touch again, it has been a long time since I felt complete and here she was with me again.

I broke the kiss and slid her off my lap, on to the couch next to me. every fibre of my being wants to pin her to the couch and screw her brains out, right here and now, but I can’t, not yet anyway.

Walking over to the other side of the room I press my head against the cold wall trying to get my head back together. “How are you, Lisa?”

I hear her sigh “Oh you know I’m same old, same old. How about you babe?”

I don’t even know how to begin to answer that question. I don’t even know why I’m here or how I got here, my head is still feeling foggy.

“Why am I here?” I eventually ask as I turn to look at her again.

“What’s your connection to Moloch?” she asks all emotion draining from her face.


“Don’t play dumb with me Bill, I know you too well. What do you know about Moloch?”

“Nothing.” I sigh “Moloch doesn’t exist Lisa. Demons aren’t real, neither is magic.”

“You’re lying to me, Bill.” She growls, “I’ve seen it and I know you have as well.”

“I can’t do this again,” I say, turning to leave. I pause at the door holding the handle. “I love you Lisa, that hasn’t changed. I want you back but I can’t do this again.”

“You don’t love me, Bill, you just think you do. I’ve done things you can’t imagine and I manipulated you so you’d do what I want. I never cared about you.”

The words cut through me like a knife in the gut. I feel a burning in my core, something I’ve never felt before. “I’m leaving.”

I walk through the door, out of the corner of my eye I catch a glimpse of something rushing towards me as I turn to face it.

My reflexes take control, holding my hands out in front of me, towards the rushing thing, I feel the weight of the thing in my hands but I’m not actually touching it. It’s floating in the air in front of me, looking at my hands they are in a claw-like gesture and the creature starts screaming in pain.

There is a crunching of bones as I bring my hands closer together and I can feel the air around it contracting, I force my hands together, the effort it’s taking is almost too much for me to handle.

The screaming from the beast suddenly cuts off and it vanishes from sight as my hands close together.

There is a rush of air that knocks me on my ass, Lisa rushes out into the corridor.

“What the hell was that?” she asks

Panting “I don’t know.”

“What did you do to it?”

I shake my head “I don’t know what happened.”

I look down at my hands, they are shaking like crazy, and there is lightning flicking between my fingers.
