Congratulations #4, The Return by Tabitha Thompson!
By: Tabitha Thompson
She stood in front of my door, staring and smiling at me with a horrifying grin. I was no longer looking at my wife Kasie, but at a stranger. Her once radiant and glowing body had turned gruesome and rotted. This was not what I signed up for when I started this love spell, somehow the spell backfired. “This can not be. Something must’ve went completely wrong.” “Nothing went wrong sweetie,” Kasie replied “See for yourself.”
Once I reached the bathroom, I couldn’t believe the man that was staring back. I was completely unrecognizable. Although I felt physically fine, my looks told a completely different story. My flesh was gruesome and rotted, with a slight poke it was falling off the bone; my eyes were sinking inside my skull, expressing a gaunt look. As I continued to explore my frightening appearance, ominous whispers echoed throughout my bathroom walls.
“You did this. You lied to everyone. You thought you could get away with it.” The last line made my remaining flesh grow with goosebumps. “Don’t forget, forever and ever love.” That was the quote my former wife and I used, before she was bludgeoned and thrown into the sea with a cinder block, allowing the cruel nature of the sea have its way with her. It was all coming back to me, the curse would never end.
