Tattoo!

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!

Human Remains!

Their first house a small terraced property

two up and two down

how the young couples eyes brightly lit up

when the estate agent

happily told them their offer was accepted

this they had not unexpected.

 

Within three days had started the decorating

to make it their very own

not being expert at any of the structural work

an uncle  was a builder

offered to do anything that needed to be done

thinking this an easy run!

 

Problems started while removing the fireplace

in the back downstairs room

as this was pulled out a skeleton was discovered

and work came to a halt

dust filled the air and the smell was very bad

ran outside to breath so  glad.

 

Calling the police decided to wait until they came

not wanting to go back

when they arrived  needed to be shown the spot

but nothing was there

no human remains were anywhere in the rubble

now there would be trouble!

 

Wasting police time was the curt warning given

after a fruitless search left

nothing was found feeling stupid went inside

shaken but ready to continue

only to find the bones were  back in fire-place

but now with flesh on the face!

 

That moment of achievement had dissipated

deciding they had to go

unsure of what could be done at this minute

it was a bizarre situation

the authorities would not come here  again

they all decided to remain!

 

Thier uncle grabbed an arm quickly recoiling

as a strange dark substance

covered his hand was absorbed by the skin

all the while flesh was growing

on the remains trying to help their uncle out

felt their sanity in doubt!

 

He became so heavy unable to hold anymore

falling his pallor turning grey

knowing he was dead themselves had to save

the lounge door slammed shut

before the two now weary and frantic got there

a noise the tension hard to bear!

 

Shouting out for help the door could not be opened

nobody came reluctantly turned

helpless both held hands as before them it stood

those human remains covered

in a slimy flesh now walking towards them upright

it seemed a terminal plight!

 

The young husband in desperation threw his wife

out of the glass filled window

cut and bruised saw him grabbed and disappear

crying realised he was gone

as the beast looked out she knew it was the start

with no choice but to depart!

 

But it was curiosity that overcame the fear to run

struggling to the broken window

stared inside the bodies of her husband and uncle

were shrivelled on the floor

nothing else could she see what had they unleashed

some new horrendous beast!

 

As the neighbours started to emerge at the disturbance

wondering what could happen next

the now widow had to get away from this awful  scene

knowing the shocking truth

had to convince somebody of what danger was ahead

before she and many others were dead!
