"After what seems an eternity, the heavy door of my cell is flung back.... There is a faint fire guttering on the hearth at the other end of the room, a great ironbound door of wood, and thin slits that open to the outside, windows that show only the night’s blackness. Closer to me are the instruments of pain." -- from the novel Sinful Folk http://sinfulfolk.com

Henry the VIII room at Hampton Court | The ghost of one of Henry VIII's wives, Katherine Howard, is supposed to appear in this area, The Haunted Galary near the Chapel Royal. She escaped her apartments where she was being held captive for crimes of treason, and fled to meet Henry when he emerged from the Chapel, pleading for mercy.

She held him tightly, wishing she could pull him inside of her. Pull her inside of him. Something. Someplace where the unrelenting tug and pull between them could finally end. Drip, drip—that was the sound of her heart bleeding all over his feet. #loveandmonsters #oliviastocum author @ www.oliviastocum.com #werewolves #LotharDanielle
