La Bruja is a dark, creepy short story I wrote for Halloween, 2013.


Christine paled. “There is no such thing as la bruja.”

Rosa laughed. “Come with me. I will show you. Unless you choose to stay here…”

Christine took the pouch and tucked it carefully into her bodice. “Show me what to do. This is my wedding night. I would spend it with the man I love.”

Rosa simply smiled, and faded into the shadows with Christine close behind her.
