Jen DeSantis’ Choice: 2

Title: Medea

The man-child pleased Medea for a time. She’d taken him to her bed and he was good at passing the time, but he had strayed. He’d found another to fill his nights and Medea found her bed growing cold.

Her thoughts grew colder still as she planned the man-child’s demise. While he dallied with the other woman, Medea watched through the muslin. Her face twisted and contorted in rage, her true nature rearing its ugly head.

A scream broke the night’s silence as Medea’s former lover and his bitch saw her through the gauze.

“Goddess, defend us,” the mewling woman cried. “What is it?”

Medea laughed, her slender fingers gripping the fabric. She smiled as her nails cut through the netting and she saw their faces clearly. The woman cowered beneath the blankets, her naked form writhing next to her lover, angling away from Medea as she advanced.

“Do you not know me, my love?” Medea asked.

The man-child’s eyes widened in horror and recognition as he placed the voice.

“Medea?” he whispered.

“Witch!” the woman cried, holding up her hand in fear.

She tried to hold back Medea’s rage with her feeble hand, but it was no use. Medea would have her revenge.
