Omens: This Flesh Is Key

Omens is a series of surreal images, released twice a month, with one particular goal – inspiration for writers, a simple story prompt.

She began to scream, and I swear, all the bugs, the birds, all the animals of the forest joined her in that horrible sound. It raised in pitch, until it was almost deafening, and then – 

It appeared as if some giant invisible hand picked her body up, like a child lifting a toy from the floor. A marionette perhaps. 

Then it turned her. Twisted her. Like she was a key being jangled in a door. 

The screaming never stopped. Her bones snapped. Her body contorted in impossible ways. 

The door was almost open.
