This story was written for the second contest of @Fantasci. The prompt they offered was interesting: there are two lovers, one has turned evil, and the other is charged with defeating them. Oh, and it had to be under 2k words. 

As I was turning over what angle I would take in writing this contest entry this story leaped fully formed into my mind. The scene was so vivid I managed to churn out the story in a single day while trapped in a busy office . . . when I should have been working on other things. Please don't tell my boss.
