“I’ll take two.”
“I fold.”
The gambler grinned to hear the telltale sounds of card play behind the door.
He rubbed his hands expectantly and threw the door wide.
“Room for another?”
His words were choked off as his throat constricted with fear.
The card players turned with creaking joints to look at him.
“Always room for another soul,” laughed the horned dealer.

He danced among the headstones

He danced among the headstones

 

Image text:

Darkness fell.

The mist rose from the fecund soil of the cemetery.The witching hour had arrived.

The spirit cloaked itself in the bones which once formed his frame.

Bursting from the earth, a new birth, he danced the joy of his resurrection among the headstones.

Soon he would journey forth to find supple flesh with which to cloak himself.
