Richelle E. Goodrich: “Such Emotions Coursed Through My Veins”

Photographer Unknown, (Emotions Coursed Through My Veins)

“I squinted at the western sky behind Thaddeus, a blood-red smear melting into blackness. Twisting my neck, I glanced the opposite direction. My teeth clenched at a magnified, round moon nearly as scarlet as the portending sunset, its luminous face half masked by hazy cloud cover. Hatred, vengeance, anger……such emotions coursed through my veins in a poisonous concoction that muddied my mind, impelling me to grip my sword tighter and fight with every ounce of strength I possessed against those who threatened my family – my kind.”

-Richelle E. Goodrich, “The Tarishe Curse”
