A Dark Place

This weekend has been amazing! It was my birthday on Friday, so Love and I spent all weekend celebrating. I received some wonderful, heartfelt gifts, had some delicious meals and was able to see The Conjuring 2 with one of my favorite people in the world. It doesn’t get much better than that!

And today I was able to visit my friend Amanda, creator and founder of Ghoulish Delights Bath Shop. We had an awesome photo shoot in her spooky basement and I was able to check out her studio and see where she creates all her amazing horror themed bath products.

She is an incredibly talented, incredibly driven business woman and I urge you all to check out her shop at www.ghoulishdelightsshop.com for all your bath and skin care needs.

And now please enjoy another installment of “Something You Can’t Forget.”

With Screams and Axes,

SOMETHING YOU CAN’T FORGET

As Max put his hand over Melissa’s mouth, she felt a sharp breeze that stung her eyes. She shut them tight, and when she opened them she found herself alone in a dressing room. She stood on a raised platform surrounded by mirrors. There was a pink glow in the dressing room, and the pedestal she stood on began to rotate slowly. She looked at herself turning in the mirror. Her skin looked clear and dewy, and every curve of her body looked full and scrumptious. Her hair was thick with wavy curls and she could see the soft light shining off it. She stared at herself, wondering what was different. She recognized her reflection in the mirror. He body was the same size and the same shape, and even her clothes were the same, but somehow the woman looking back at her wasn’t her. It couldn’t be her, because the woman in the mirror was beautiful. There was something in her reflection that was lovely, something had changed. She stared and stared, trying to figure out what it was.

“Like what you see?” Melissa heard a voice that seemed to come from all around her.

“Yes,” she admitted to the shapeless voice.

“Would you like this?” the voice asked. “Would you like this to be true?”

“What have you done to me?” Melissa demanded. She heard a sigh and Max appeared before her, obscuring her view of herself.

“Isn’t this what you wanted?” He asked.

“I don’t look any different,” she said, examining herself again.

“Perhaps not. But you feel different, don’t you?” He asked her, a genuine look of concern on his brow.

“Yes. I suppose so.” Melissa wanted to hide her feelings from him. But she did feel different, she felt like she never had before. She felt comfortable. Like she had been tensed up in her own body for so long and now she was finally able to relax and breathe.

“That’s because you see different. I changed nothing but your sight.” He smiled with a big grin, proud of himself. “And I can do even more than that.”
