Excerpt *******************************************************************************************

The Old Oak and the Witch

By: Joshua Robertson

“Hello?” she fervently whispered, not sure whether she should be frightened or amazed at the sight before her. Her eyes were shining in the radiance of the crystal that brightened the cavern and many tunnels that stretched in all directions.

At the sound of her voice, hissing echoed from the tunnels. In a moment’s time, slithering snakes of many lengths and colors slinked and slunk into the cavern. Their swarming bodies etched over one another by the hundreds, swirling around poor Julia.

Julia swallowed the scream that crawled up her throat; tears touched the ducts of her eyes. The piercing black eyes of every reptilian monstrosity seemed to be fully locked upon the young girl, hungrily advancing, but not daring to touch her. Instead, the snakes simply circled her, keeping her trapped within the framework of their slimy, boneless frames.

“Hello, dear Julia,” a lady said from behind her.

“Hello,” Julia responded back quickly, as a good child would do, spinning around to see who had spoken to her. Sitting atop the snakes with an evil grin upon her face was the witch!
