Description for my blind and visually impaired readers: I had no idea. Rochelle said it’s a big, red metal container.

The Inspiration

I wanted to use my characters from They All Died Smiling, my paranormal novel available everywhere. So, I did.

The Story: Red Eyes and Stupid Guys

Genre: Paranormal

Word count: 100

Those red eyes appeared around every dark corner, behind every visible puff of my breath again as I made my way from the El to our apartment.

I refuse to give in to fear and let you win. Once one demon knows you, they all do, so they sure had me on speed dial.

Sighing at the safety of my front door, I unclenched the key.

Hot breath touched my neck.

I whipped around, prepared for battle. My instinctive punch to the chest sent the bundled creep back a few steps.

“Whoa, Kass, It’s just me.”

“Russell? Warn a girl!”

Thanks for reading!

Cheers to your #BLISSfulLife!!
