“It is the monsters who will save us. We paint them with such allure because they carry the power we gave away. All those scratches and scars you bear with such pride are just the marks of the power trying to get back in. The monsters knock on your bones and trample your blood simply because you will not let them sleep, you will not let them leave, you will not set yourself free.” C. Winther ©

    You definitely got my attention.
    Is that a solioquy by one of your characters, part of a conversation, or words from the narrator?
    I like it!
    And the image reminds me of something from the television series, “Hannibal.”
    Eerie!

    • Wow! What a compliment. I love the writing in Hannibal (both the book and the series). It isn’t a part of anything yet but I may build on it. This is often how my novels and short stories start out 🙂
