Moving by stealth

I am the tree witch I am hiding in the forest green I move by stealth I blend in and I am rarely seen.

I am waiting to trap a soul,it is something I must do. Over the years I have stolen quiet a few. My hair is long and lustrous and really very strong, it can catch you and entrap you as quick as a whip’s thong.

I have roots growing out from my feet and spreading from my hem leaves spread from fingers and from my backbone stem thrice fold pairs of arms. If you look close enough I will bewitch you with my charms.

My eyes are deftly painted to show off their emerald green my lips are always blood red well another colour would be obscene.

I have a lighted candle in my third left hand tonight, I have seen you about your business and I have come for you tonight.

I know you are not too special but I have watched you in your room at night,alone with computer and your mind in fantasy’s flight.You long for a Vampire to relieve you of your soul you seem to think that one of my cousins would make your sad life whole.

I have thought this over I have listened to your prayers , I have lingered by your window and taken in your every word.There is something about you, something that I like so I have decided you will endure no Vampires bite.

So look out your window and see my candles’ light, come out my little human soul have no fear I shall treat you right. You will be so much better off with me than in a Vampires lair just look out your window and see my candle light is there.

AH! at last you see me,curiosity in your eyes. That is right my darling make your way to me for you my body cries. At last you are so near to me I catch your human scent come close now my darling my love for you I must vent.

At last you are with in my reach, come nearer to the candle yes closer,closer my darling no need to be gentle my branches will not break. I have you now my darling I own your soul I have waited aeons for a man to make me whole!

      I wanted to let my darker side out for once and then I thought there are a lot of beautiful Vampires on here, so I though my Tree Witch ( and my name is willow) might have to fight off the Vampires for this human’s soul. Then I thought what if she could capture one that already desired to be a Vampire!! Sorry rambling on but I did enjoy it! So hopefully you can see I can do scary now too, but definitely with a little wink! Thank you for your lovely comments. xxxx

    A delightfully told tale – the imagery was stunning. I could see her blood-red lips curved in a gentle smile. Where does she live – I wanna meet her! 😉

    Deep in the Royal Forest is where she dwells, she may just up roots , now she has her man and pop up to see you,( if she came by train she may use a branch line, provided there where not too many leaves on the line!!) Hugs!! and thank you for your kind words. 😉

    Captivating story, Willow, neither vampire bite nor soul-ed Tree will take my love away from me.. (of course I was imagining Johnny Depp as the male…a quirk of mine I’m afraid. 😉 She would have to duel with me for his favours, methinks) … xPenx

    Now I my Lady Pen that would not be a fair fight she would out number you with hands alone!! whisk you with her hair!I think if she Claims Mr Depp she will have a hard soul to tame on her hands, if we join forces we could rescue him. Then he would have to repay us somehow??
