2nd Place for Prose
LightOverpowers58 with their piece Forever the Love of HorrorViridian strands of grass shimmered in the moon’s pearlescent beams. Heavy velveteen dresses sighed in the midnight winds as outstretched hands interlocked. An expected sense of heaviness seemed to weigh the group of seven gathered in the cemetery.
Harsh brogues filled the night air, staccato cadences slipping through the limbs of gnarled trees and wafting toward the stars’ eerie glow. The voices tapered off, stark silence their only remnant.
Sickening cracks began to echo from the dirt beneath their feet. One by one, they fell to the ground, a single figure left standing. Breaths faded, strangled gasps falling from their mouths. The final female stood, face and posture relaxed.

It is longer than when I last saw you,
as you drew shallow, shaky breaths, and I drew you against me,
your frail form clutching with feeble strength
before they took you away.
They didn't want us together, love, you see.
So they hid you away from me, tried to tell me you were gone.
