Delicate skin
And crack’d
Watery eyes
And blue
Tattered lips
And chapp’d
Rotten teeth
Almost through

She posed with her alabaster smile momentarily, giving her victim one final look at her time-ravaged appearance, before piercing the jugular. She drank. She watched the victim’s skin change appearance, becoming more translucent. Too much and the victim’s life-force would slip away; just enough and she would sire another… either way, the victim: gone forever. Too little, however, would endanger her.

She pondered as she drank.

Reddened lips accentuated her deathly pale appearance. Her alabaster smile broadened. Her decision was made.

    1. Thanks, Cobs.
      The thing is, my former favourite web-based photo-editing site has now gone pay only (it was free before but I had to take a screenshot to save my picture) so I now have to find something equally good, if not better. For free, obviously! (That or get using my free Photoshop Elements or GIMP software as they should be used!)
      Until then, however, the effects on my pictures may not be as good as I would like them to be. Sigh.

      1. The trick is,Tom, to not be so critical of your own artwork.
        Stand back from it (emotionally) and instead think that you’re looking at it on someone else’s blog altogether.

        I bet when you succeed in this, you’ll see what we all see. . . a great bit of clever artwork from someone who’s very talented.

        Love your art. You’re a wizard! 😀
