Follow me, mortal coils unbound, de l'obscurité pour allumer,
employing the uniform of freedom and brotherhood and equality.
I am Death;
I plow the field level.
Note: This post is in response to this week's writing challenge from Trifecta.
On to this week's challenge. We usually try to choose prompts that don't lead the writer down an obvious path. Indeed, some of our favorite posts require a third or fourth reading to even find our one-word prompt. This will almost definitely not be the case with this week's challenge. I can't help it. I'm a huge fan of Halloween, and the third definition of this word is just too clever to pass up.
This week's word is:
1a : a permanent cessation of all vital functions : the end of life
2a : the cause or occasion of loss of life
b : a cause of ruin
Mwahahaha. Have fun
