Face of Death

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

 I had a dream one night, and in that dream, there was a huge battle. In the center of the battle, I saw a masked warrior with a curved sword fighting ferociously. At one point in the battle, he removed his mask, looking his enemies in the face. The two men he was fighting suddenly screamed in terror, then fell dead. I realized that his face was somehow cursed or bewitched in a manner that destroyed his enemies when they looked upon it. "That's why he wears that mask!" I said aloud. Suddenly, at the sound of my voice, he turned around and looked straight at me! I stood, shocked, and for a minute, I thought for sure I was dead. I stared deep into his eyes, wondering why I was still alive. Suddenly I realized, I was the only one who could look him in the face! And then, I woke up.   © Jacqueline Kay Barnett
