Typo I just caught.
Your mother lets out a shrill scream and slaps her hands to her eyes, her jaw dropping. Then, after a moment, she begins to sob, her voice growing into a wail. “What have you done, you sick little freak?” She starts to stumble about, craning her head to gaze desperately at the moon up above, the moon that she’s now unable to see. “What have you done to my eyes?” she howls.
You laugh cruelly, edging forward and raising your hands to strike her. It matters little how much stronger she is when she’s defenseless like this. With your spell only able to last for so long, perhaps you will put out her eyes and blind her permanently. Just as you’re about to reach her, though, she throws her hands away from her face, revealing her wide, shocked eyes.
Wait, no. In only the span of a moment, she recovers. “How dare you use that freaky demon shit on me?!” she roars, the veins bulging on her forehead and her voice a mixture of complete shock and blinding rage.
Before you can react, she lunges forward, shoving you to the ground. You try to crawl away, but she begins to savagely kick you over and over. Crying out in pain, you curl up into a ball, putting your hands over your head as the blows keep falling, bruising you and scraping you until your mind is overwhelmed with agony. “I hate you! I fucking hate you!” she howls. “Why couldn’t it have been you? Why couldn’t it have been you?!”
God. If this was in a TV show I’d have to pause it just to take it in. This is such a tense, but perfect scene. The cruelty, the feeling of FINALLY being able to stand up to her, only for our spell to wear off and witness her immediately snap thereafter, that ending scream quote. Sam, you fucking nailed it here. This is the scene I thought was missing. This effectively wraps up the reason to hate this woman. You deserve kudos for your effective writing here.
And, my final thing: when that random hooligan flees the scene, why can’t we use the blow dart?
Also, I think Voodoo magic is my new favorite. Maybe. The blinding spell, and the vomit spell are just so…satisfying. It’s still close with Phantom though. We’ll see what other delightfully wicked ways we can play with the two sets come to fruition as you continue delivering such content.
P.S.: Forgive the edits. New phone.
