She seemed a kind attractive young woman
joined his firm as a secretary
at first they just acknowledged each other
progressing to short chats
later he could not help flirting she was nice
but he would pay the price!
Had noticed the unusual tattoo on her arm
that was what caught his eye
the design looked similar to hieroglyphics
like Egyptian symbols he had seen
commenting on it one day she gave no reply
changing the subject wondered why!
After that their conversations were no more
but his interest was alerted
a gut feeling grew there was a hidden agenda
from the early attraction
her presence now began to fill him with unease
his curiosity had to appease!
Soon there were reports of bodies being found
shrivelled as if the life force drained
staff from his office block were not turning up
it was down in the basement
several were his friends long time co-workers
they were said to be murders!
Sensing this woman must have a connection
dare he think it possible
this young attractive female was the culprit
nobody would believe him
if this theory was put forward to the police
his search had to increase!
No expert in being inconspicuous he watched
trying not to be obvious
though easy to look at such a mesmerizing lady
he felt the pangs of fear
yet it began to feel there was a sexual desire
so strong started to perspire!
The more he tried to follow her movements
the magnetism grew stronger
suddenly from ignoring him she again smiled
his eyes hypnotised by the tattoo
that even from a distance seemed to come alive
his urges going into overdrive!
Had to go over and speak as though compelled
it was so strong the passion
she sat looking at him emotions hard to control
telling her she was beautiful
really embarrassed not normally so forth right
showing her thigh a thrilling sight!
Though awake was unable constrain his body
as now through a quiet office
found himself compelled to walk with her
aroused by the perfect image
and the incredibly intoxicating smell of scent
on having pleasure was bent!
Entering the lift was totally under her spell
but he had a strong will
the basement was reached she helped him
felt weak yet began to realise
as the pattern of events began to unfold
she started to become really old!
Guiding him rapidly to a furnished store-room
on entering came in for a kiss
but he had the strength to pull away and fell
she was on top of him now ugly
loose hanging skin grey hair and rotting teeth
trying kiss as he glared beneath!
Pushed this monster away saw a fire extinguisher
stood against a near wall
as she came into to hold his head just grabbed it
swung it at the shrivelling face
the once beautiful woman now reeled back
had it been a successful attack!
Making an awful shriek with outstretched arms
then dissolved into nothing
just gunge filled clothing left on the floor
struggling to regain his senses
got out determined to never return to here
walking away his mind more clear!
Completely certain it was a just an isolated case
but even as he planned
a new future far from this part of the country
a security guard had found
the mess and clothing on his routine walk round
never heard the faint sound!
In the corner a small statue started glowing
and a shape began growing!
