Lone blue heart

He traced the familiar lines on her palm.

She shudders, lips too weak to implore.

Lone blue heart pierced, blood gushing out.


His murder weapon? A pen.

Filling pages and reader’s minds with stunned dread.

A beloved character. Gone. In a flash.

  1. Oooo, love the way you approached this! Sometimes killing off a beloved character makes the writer care even more. Thanks for joining the gargleblaster!
