Only one TEASER today--so Catie's the star!


BLOOD AND TEACUPS: This Is Love


So Amelia took the knife, the sharpest from her family's kitchen and plunged it deeply between her third and fourth ribs. Funny, she thought, most people assume the best way to reach a human heart was going through the chest, but that was really much more difficult on account of the sternum. No, much easier to slice through muscle and tissue, fibrous ligaments and pulsing veins. Must use a diamond sharp knife though, otherwise the whole endeavor would be moot. I am thinking all this to distract myself, she continued thinking. Each breath brought sharp pains, but it's for a good cause. She rummaged around inside her own chest, seeking her most vital organ until her blade fairly bounced off the beating, rubbery flesh. Ah, there you are. A brief smile lit Amelia's usually sallow face. "Now then," she said drawing the knife out several inches before sinking it back as deeply as possible. The animals in the surrounding forest startled at the sudden half-gasp, half-scream of human anguish. With a few quick tugs and accompanying sucking noise, Amelia finally plucked the still pumping heart from her body. Holding it before her eyes on the knife's tip, she sighed. "Yes," she told the fat pink organ. "You will do just fine."
