- Stained Claws -
Sweeping the nation, the religion founded under blood has once again become the people's public affair.
Vials of their victim's blood sit upon their shelves and tables - waiting to find a new home in their every day grooming routines. Unashamed of their actions, the world of blood worshippers utilize the red liquid first in lipsticks and now nail polishes. Spreading their claws neatly across their skeletal frames, they brush the thick liquid along their nails - indulging in the iron scent of pure ecstasy. Resisting the urge to feed in daylight, where they may be caught, the blood-stained humans lick the tips of their nails to taste the remnants - holding them over until night falls upon them. As they finish the hunt of night, they move to their homes before sunrise and create the concoctions where blood and beauty meet - placing their experiments on a bed of roses as they rest their empty eyes.
