In the blackness between the stars: a tapered passage way.

The path is littered with the tatterdemalions, the cosmic eyeless. They crawl and chitter as is their way. They are not His children.

The trodden track reveals a basalt wall made of cold gargantuan blocks. The ragged orphans scuttle noisily over the glassy surface, roused by His proximity.

The Defiler is seated beyond the colossal wall, torporific. The frayed souls attend to His dubious needs while dormancy enjoys an infinitesimal reign. But while sleep fleetingly curbs the corrupting influence, this is a transient measure.

All flesh will soon become His.

    You are very, very kind LMC. Thank you so much. Your recent comments on a couple of my old drabbles inspired me to post a new one here for the first time in a year. I'm in your debt. :-)

    Thank you, Francis! I never left really, I've been regularly following and enjoying everyone's writing here. Just thought I'd post another 100-word story for old time's sake. :-)

    Apologies for the poor picture quality, Doktor. The details on the latex pig mask are hardly discernable.

    I'm reminded of Act 1, Scene 2 from The King in Yellow, Doktor.

    No mask? No mask! :-)

    I was in awe to find a drabble of yours in my feed; hopefully it will become a trend again. =)
