Coming Soon!

Black Opal Books Presents
                        Fanaman Curse

                                                 Piercing nails clawed Charlotte’s skin   
                          She fought the presence that tried to take control
                                        It scratched deep wells into her flesh
                                    Charlotte felt as though she was trapped
                                              in one of her nightly nightmares
                                      Without warning Charlotte stopped fighting
                       She had learned from those nightmares to let the demons                                                                     wash over her
                       She forced the lower extremities of her body to go limp
                               This always betrayed the demons to their own greed
                                   When her opponent lessened its deathening grip
                                                          the opportunity came
                            Charlotte transferred her strength into her arms
                                             and fought hard for her life
                                                  tossing the figure away
                                            As always, the figure vanished
                                                      as though never there
                   Hysterical laughter from within the Conservatory filled 
                                                             Charlotte’s ears
                                    Only the sight of her father lunging into the 
                                                Conservatory eased her mind
