The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
Bottomless depths of the blue orb stare at me unseeing. The once bright light of a myriad of emotions now stagnant, frozen in place for all eternity. Blue, the colour of my blood. Blue, the colour of my love… now it is truly mine forever. Nothing, no one can steal my bluest of blue. Nothing can change the perpetual love etched for all ages on my blue. The dazzling orb which would throw even the most beauteous Aphrodite in the shade…
I am blessed to be loved by him, of eyes so blue and love so true. I could not leave it to chance or fate. Love can wither with the evil that is Time, beauty can fade into grey sallow skin. But now, no matter what the world brings I will ever have that blue loving glance forever in my grasp, in my special little box of treasures…

Katra is a Fae Hunter in a world once ravaged by a terrible war. Having lost all memory of her childhood and rightful identity, her duty is now to protect the tentative peace brokered by the varying races of the supernatural world. When an evil darkness begins to spread, draining young witches of their power, Katra must find a way back to her true past in order to save the future.
Enduring many trials as ever-increasing powers awaken within her, Katra must also struggle with the mixed emotions her new partner, Blade – a Black Dragon – is rousing within her. Together they must battle the shadows that plan to devour the world they know and prevent its decent into another thousand-year war.
Can Katra hold onto her strength as the truth of her very being begins to unravel? Can she bear the weight that ancient prophecy has placed on her young shoulders? Or is her destiny to regain her true self, only to lose the world she is sworn to protect?
