My eyes shot open! What I saw was so unbelievable that for long moments I did nothing. My hands still held something tightly against my body, my tongue still sought hers in the cavernous space between her jaws, but her eyes! Our heads still pressed close in our embrace, I saw that those blue portals to her soul were no more! Her empty sockets held only the blackened endings of nerves and veins, and rags of rotting skin which hung from the lips of those eyeless craters. In her fleshless mouth, my tongue still sought hers, even as I screamed.
