Came up with a small ditty about one of the gods of Texas, whom you wouldn't want to meet on a dark road.  50 words.

Quote

Red Polly, never jolly, stakes out the midnight road.

Hides in the grass, such a bloodthirsty lass,

Her spells never fall through.

Along comes a man

Maybe soldier, maybe not (they all look alike in the dark)

And up jumps Polly, never jolly,

And cuts ‘em a big red smile.

Blood was gushing, way more than was healthy. It flowed between Kieran’s fingers as he tried to stem the wound. It might have been the delirium talking but all he could think while watching it was “At least my blood looks human.”

"Why is there blood all over my kitchen?"

"It's not your kitchen," the warlock said grimly. "It's our kitchen. And it's a new moon, so it's just the right time for a cleansing ritual."

She eyed the stains on the walls, the windows, the table.

"Do your cleansing rituals have to be this messy?"
