Welcome to Six-Sentence Sunday!
In this scene, Eric Cross and his mercenary team have broken into a Bonespire, a dread vampire fortress, where they’re supposed to learn about the Ebon Cities’ new and secret weapon. As is prone to happen when wandering around in hostile vampire fortresses, Cross eventually gets separated from the others and stumbles into a most unpleasant area…
Cross found himself in a chamber of dead girls.
Deep pits filled with dark fluid filled the breadth of the enormous room in a grid-like pattern. The body of a young woman hung suspended over each vat; each corpse dangled from a network of dark chains that ran like a massive web across the cathedral-like ceiling.
Each body was pale-haired and pale-skinned, nude and not entirely human. The flesh was moldered and grey, and each corpse was latched to at least a dozen hooks in her shoulders, torso and outstretched arms. Black fluid, like grisly oil, dripped off the bodies and into the vats.
