10/2/2019 As we continue the story of Forsaken Foes, we invite you to sit back and enjoy October Shadows By EM Malachi October Shadows The hallway held a macabre mockery of various holidays. An indoor garden of gourds and nightshade grew pumpkins already carved with sinister glowing runes. Brightly colored eggs filled with bees twitched in a basket guarded by a rabid rabbit.
