Scripps Inter-dimensional (Lovecraft Month)

Post by inkhat » Fri May 30, 2014 3:55 am

Every year the things that looked like children awoke and gathered in the theater. They enjoyed games and puzzles. They liked to be entertained.

The humans set up chairs, not looking at the stage, the things like children in neat rows.

Last year the test hadn’t been hard enough, and one of them tore through her pink, plaid dress and soaked the city in blood.

A monster stepped up the microphone, her unblinking eyes flickering across the crowd. Below her, a man leaned toward a microphone.

“Antediluvian.” He said.

She licked her lips. “Can you use it in a sentence?”

Nicely done. Perhaps HPL was preparing our lexicons with doozies like gibbous and batrachian.
