Lana Wilson goes to a night club with her best friend, Annabelle Waverly, to absorb the magickal powers that will be released on this special night. Little does she know that her life will change forever.
As the Witching Hour approaches, loud music blares from the speakers and the strobe lights flash overhead, smoke lingers in the air adding a surreal effect to the already daunting night of a full moon on Friday the 13th. 

All the freaks are out tonight...

This is my entry for the #OnceUponNow short story contest, hosted by @target. 
It is inspired by the original Beauty and the Beast by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, published in 1740 (as opposed to the well-known Disney version of the story). 
Of course with a paranormal flair - Happy Reading! ღ

Doesn't mean he's dead. He could be kidnapped and being tortured. But instead of thinking of this and helping, you feel sorry for yourself and wish he would make everything better.

Man,  the way you started it off immediately yanked me in and gave me the chills.  For it to be such a short story,  it aches.  Great description.  Love it! ¬U¬}
