The eyes, the eyes that devoured me, your eyes, staring – burning – cutting me deep, the eyes I loved, are gone, the spark extinguished, the blade dulled.

It was the right thing to do.

This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge  weekend prompt:

Write a horror story in 33 words, without the words blood, scream, died, death, knife, gun, or kill.
