You Can’t Forget

They thought that it would never come for them. That they would never have to answer for what they were and what they refused to do.

A smile spread across Neal’s face, the insanity contained within would give any who saw it night terrors for the rest of their natural lives.

It was convenient that nothing was left alive around him.

Somewhere in the Ether, where Chaos was sealed, it shared his smile.


Inspired by the redo that Sreejit is doing with all of his Dungeon Prompts. I thought about it and decided that it would be a lot of fun to revisit them as well! This was a revisit of Dungeon Prompts: Chaos.

The Deceiver

Neal grinned maliciously, so they thought they had won. Thought that they had defeated his Mistress?

His Lady could never be defeated, not even should Her enemies die out. She was stronger than the Light, stronger than the Dark and more motivated than the Neutral.
