The Lemon Queens (flash fiction)

The Lemon Queens

In Lana’s dream she was warned the Lemon Queens were coming. Abruptly she awoke and began shivering. You would think Lemon Queens would be something pleasant, but in reality it was a euphemism for humanoid figures with blotchy sallow skin unpleasantly stretched over their thin frames. Their hands had long fingers that ended in sharp claws used for disemboweling their victims. They also had sharp pointed teeth for ripping throats open.

Lana sat up in her bed in the dark her arms cradling her shaking body. On the edge of hearing the door handle to her bedroom slowly opened.

  1. Creepy! Interesting to find out how this continues. Could it be a dream within a dream, where the bedroom door opens and then you are shocked into a continuation but it’s a different story.
