Sanctified: Chapter 16- Beasties + Baddies (Part 1)

Fosco was not in the mood to deal
With some motorcycle gang hoping
To cash in on the terror of “war”.
“Give us all your weapons,” the blonde man
With the grey pistol demanded. He
Aimed his gun at Fosco as four more
Men crept out of the trees. “You heard him,”
Said a bald man as he walked up to
Fosco and pointed his gun in his face.
“Get yo gun out my face,” Fosco warned.
The man laughed and said, “You gonna make
Me?” His friends laughed and surrounded the
Airport survivors. “Don’t test me,” the
Blonde cautioned, “Its been a long day filled
With apocalyptic gloom. My boys
And I could take you out in a blink.
Make it easy, give us what we want.”
Fosco glared and said, “I got places
To be and people to see, messing
Around with greedy, trash-ass white boys
Ain’t on my schedule for the evening.”
“You got a mouth on you, dontcha, boy,”
Baldy remarked, “how about I cut your tongue.”
He didn’t finish that sentence;
Fosco head-butted him in the nose
The snatched his gun from him. “Try me, bitch.”

Sanctified: Chapter 15- Strangers (Part 4)

Sedequa kicked the slimy monster
In the knee as it dashed straight at her.
She shot one of its long bony hands
And it screeched in terror. One of its
Puppets kicked the gun out of her hand
And punched her in the cheek. He squeezed her
Sword in both hands; she did not like that.
Sedequa swung the long stinger and
Challenged the puppet pretending to
Wield her weapon. He blocked one blow,
Then two. Sedequa spun round and
Slashed the puppet’s calf; he screamed out
And Sedequa kicked him in the chest.
The sword flew across the cabin. Sue
Continued shooting ng until no one
Still stood but her, Sedequa, and the
Monster. Sedequa raced to pick up
The sword. She snatched it up and turned to
The beast. “You ain’t ready for this.” She
Tossed the stinger to Dustin and chopped
The tooth-belly monster down. It swung
Its bony hands over her head and
She sliced it clear off. With her sword
In her possession it stood no chance.
She was covered in green blood with one
Thought on her mind; she was the baddest.

Sanctified: Chapter 15- Strangers (Part 3)

The tiny cabin that held Dustin
Reeked of decay and rotten kitchen
Scraps, as if someone had started a
Compost pile but forgot to add
Paper towels for the carbon half.
Sedequa was shocked and somewhat peeved
That the newly released stone monsters
Managed to gain a human-puppet
Following in only eight hours.
The puppets had five hostages and
One of them sullied Sedequa’s sword
With their filthy cultish hands. “They’re dead,”
Sue whispered, “The ones worshipping the
Monsters.” Sedequa shot her a glare.
“Trust me,” Sue quickly added, “I know.”
They counted eight puppets and one tall,
Slimy beast with long fingers and sharp
Razor-shaped teeth, not in its head; the
Monster’s mouth was in its belly.
It hunched back and roared, its large green eyes
Spotting Sedequa as she burst through
The window, shooting the two puppets
Guarding the door. Sue kicked it down, fast,
Spraying bullets like she was playing
Connect the dots only shooting the
Monster’s servants. No plan, just bullets.

Sanctified: Chapter 15- Strangers (Part 2)

They took Sedequa’s sword, so she had
To improvise. She ripped the giant
Stinger off the dead wasp-built monster
That crashed into their car, it was sharp
And it would have to do until she
Got Dustin and her sword back. Sue whipped
Out two automatic pistols from
Her shoulder bag and said, “I was out
At the gun range when those monsters
Attacked, so I took whatever I
Could carry over my shoulder.” She
Opened her bag, revealing amo
And two more pistols. “You know how to
Use one of these things?” Sedequa grabbed
A pistol, checked the magazine, and
Said, “We’re gonna find out.” Sue smiled and
Shook her head. “You pull and hold down the
Trigger and bullets will soar,” she said,
“Its fully automatic.” “Good. Those
Things ‘bout to find out who they messin’
With.” Sedequa squeezed the long stinger
In one hand and her new pistol in
The other.” I stopped the bleeding on
Your shoulder,” said Sue, as the started
Walking west, “Let me know if it hurts.”
“I’m fine,” she replied, staring ahead.

Sanctified: Chapter 15- Strangers (Part 1)

Sadequa struggled to pop the bright
Buzzing in her ears as she laid on
The wet gravel; she couldn’t remember
When it started to rain or when she
Crawled out of the wreckage but the red
Haired woman holding the bottle of
Ice water to her lips made her all
The more frantic. “Where’s Dustin?” she coughed.
“Where’s my sword?” She wobbled to her feet,
A gust of dizziness forcing her
To lean on the woman. “They took him,”
She replied. “Who did?” Sedequa asked.
The woman lowered her head, “The ones
That came back.” Sedequa scrunched her nose.
“What are you talking about?” “They all
Came back, those killed by the statues. They
Became servants,” the woman said. ”They
Took your friend.” Sedequa rubbed her head.
“Which way did they take him?” she questioned.
“You can’t go after them. There’s seven
Armed brainless freaks out there and who knows
How many of those statue things they’re with.”
Sedequa snatched the cold bottle from
Her hand and took a sip. “I have to.”
The woman sighed and picked up her bag.
“Well I guess I’m going too. I’m Sue.”

Sanctified: Chapter 14- Bottom of the Food Chain

Reaching the outskirts of Portland was
No easy feat. Fosco’s dagger-tooth
Vibrated in his hand, he hadn’t dropped
     It since he used it to belly slice
     The spiky monster at the airport.
     Deep down in his bones, Fosco could sense
          That the tooth held great power and he
          Was chosen to wield against the beasts.
          But for good measure he equipped his
     Ragtag team of survivors with spikes
     And bones from the monsters he had slain.
     He wanted to be sure that any
Monster they ran into on their trek
Through the backroads of Portland they would
All have enough power to at least
     Take on the terrors awaiting them.
     “What do you think those things want?” The teen
     Girl asked as she walked next to Fosco.
          Fosco remained alert. “They’re devils
          Here to punish the world for its sins,”
          The man with the slicked back hair preached.
     “Bullshit,” Fosco scoffed, “They don’t care for
     Our crap. They’re here to reclaim the world
     At the top of the food chain.” “Where does
That leave you?” Asked the tall blonde man that
Jumped in front of them with a pistol.

Sanctified: Chapter 13- Full on Deadly

Dustin took the back roads for the next
Hour, making sure to avoid big
Areas where panicking drivers
Could cause a ruckus of terror and
Trouble. He knew how wild people could
     Get when the sky came tumbling down.
     “What do you think those things are,” he said.
     Sedequa shook her head and turned back
     To her sword in the back seat; was she
     Destined to battle those stoned creatures,
Did she have some ancient power to
Send them back from the hell they clawed out
Of? If she had the answer she would
Have probably still chosen to find her
Brother over hiding out till the
     Danger was over. She took a deep
     Breath and said, “I think they’re relics from
     Harsher times ready to reclaim a
     World damaged by humans. But to be
     Honest we’re probably not a blip
          On their radar.” Dustin laughed and said,
          “Well some of us. You gave a couple
          Of them something to fear.” Sedequa
          Smiled, almost ignoring the great
          Big wasp-built monster bust into the
Hood of Dustin’s car; a full on crash.

Sanctified: Chapter 12- Skin, Bone, Entrails

Fosco could not fully wrap his hand
Around the giant fang, trying not
To gross himself out as the bloody
Tooth pulsed in his grasp, shooting a buzz
Of searing energy through his bones.
The spiny beast shot into the air
And Fosco plunged the fang into it’s
Belly as he slid underneath the
Monster. It shrieked as Fosco dragged the
Tooth down it’s stomach, entrails and green
Goo splattered to the floor and onto
Fosco’s face. He gagged as the beast
Dropped dead; Fosco’s skin slithered as he tried
To shake off the beasts insides from his
Body. “That’s two of those things you’ve killed,”
A red haired woman choked out, “you must
Be blessed by an Angel.” Fosco scoffed,
“I’m just trying not to get eaten.”
A young man with baggy jeans jumped up
And said, “Well guide us to the promise
Land since you know how to face these fiends.”
Fosco took a deep breath and said, “I
Have some place to be tomorrow and
These ‘fiends’ ain’t gon’ stop me.” The other
Survivors glanced at each other and
Silently agreed to follow him.

Sanctified: Chapter 10- Toothy

The beast roared as the suitcase banged him.
Fosco slammed his luggage on top of
The spiky monsters head, the only
     Dent he made was in the luggage. The
     Monster’s thick skull was unbreakable.
     It roared and used is long arms to toss
          Fosco against a wall, its gaze shot
          To the teen girl shivering five feet
          Away. Fosco struggled to find his
     Breath, trying to remind his lungs
     How to breathe. The teen girl pulled out the
     Large fang as the monster sprinted at
Her. The man with the slicked back hair jumped
Between her and the beast, tackling
The teen to the floor before the beast
     Could maul her. The monster’s spikes shot up
     As it missed it’s prey, catching nothing
     But air. The others screamed as the beast
          Switched is attention to the seven
          Terrified witnesses, shaking in
          Horror. It possibly smelled their fear,
     Fosco thought as he noticed the thick
     Bloody fang at his feet. He snatched it
     Up and took a chance. “Yo shit-brain,” he
Hollered. The monster shrieked and charged him.
Fosco squeezed the fang, risking it all

Sanctified: Chapter 9: Power

Sedequa grinned, wielding the ancient
Weapon as if it was meant for her
And no one else. The beast growled, it’s eyes
Throwing daggers of rage and envy
As it sprinted on all fours straight to
     Sedequa. It heals fast, she thought, but
     Even monsters need their heads to breathe.
     She leaped into the air, the long sword
     Tight between her hands; the beast was not
     Quick enough and Sedequa shoved the
Sword straight into the back of its skull.
It came out of the beasts mouth making
A loud clank as it hit the tiled
Floor. The beast fell limp and Sedequa
Snatched the sword out of its skull, her sword.
     The man with the dark eyes swept Sedequa
     By the waist and said, “We gotta get
     Far away from here.” He pulled her to
     The emergency exit, his arms
     Shaking as he kicked the door open.
          Sedequa did not let go of her
          New weapon as she followed the man.
          A giant feathered beast with talons
          Darted in front of them; Sedequa
          Smirked and said, “Stay behind me.” She squeezed
The sword and saw her future. Power.

Sanctified: Chapter 8- Wings and Fangs

Fosco did not stop slamming his big
Copper-colored luggage until he was
Sure the monster would not get back up.
    Green slime and sweat all over his face
    Fosco looked up at the stoned-terror
    Faced stragglers who failed to make it
Out of the airport lobby in time.
“I’m sticking with him,” a teen girl said,
Pointing to Fosco and jumping right
    Behind him as more beasts crossed through the
    Shattered windows. “We gotta get some
    Place safe, with walls and doors,” a man with
        Slick black hair proclaimed. Fosco wiped the
        Green slime from his forehead and said, “This
        Way.” The teen girl behind him bent down
    And picked up one of the fangs from the
    Monsters smashed head, slipping it into
    Her pocket as she followed Fosco
And the other nine survivors up
The escalator “Stay close,” he said.
He wielded his luggage like it was
     A holy blade that only he was
     Worthy of possessing—compelling.
     A beast with horns along its spine jumped
In front of them. Fosco sprang up quick,
Uppercutting it with his suitcase.

Sanctified: Chapter 7- Horns and Blades

Sedequa watched as a horned creature
Ignored the humans dripping in fear
And set a path for the part of the
Exhibit that housed the warrior
Statues. The beast’s leathery skin was
    Violet, covered in lilac-colored
    Tattoos. Marching on its hind legs, the
    Monster smashed and crushed the warrior
    Statues, the scent of vengeance close by.
    Sedequa jumped to her feet, a rush
Of adrenaline racing through her
Veins and chased after the beast with horns.
The beast spun around in mid rampage
Growling as Sedequa slid under
Its legs. She grabbed one of the spear blades
    A now crumbled warrior wielded
    And used it to stab through the back of
    The monster’s meaty leg. The beast screeched
    As it fell to the floor, its long arm
    Reaching back and slamming Sedequa
        Against a large warrior statue.
        Wrong move; it shattered leaving nothing
        But a pile of rocks and an iron
        Sword. She snatched up the sword and turned to
        Finish the violet beast in her path.
Catching it’s gaze, she dared it to pounce.
