Crossroads Hill


Ficlets refugee.

My previous stories:

I'm getting back into writing after a long break.

Your comments are greatly appreciated!

"But they don't have heads!"

"As I understand it, that's voluntary."

"That's ridiculous."

"I'm telling you, 'Haunted City' is a democracy. Its real name is 'Crossroads Hill', and it's perfectly safe to visit."

"But there's a necromancer overlord, and the townsfolk are headless zombies!"

"They're not, though! They're more like… I dunno, a lich. They still have their own minds and wills."

"… And the necromancer?"

"There is a powerful necromancer based there, who conducts the procedure and the magic that keeps everyone, uh… not dead."


"I guess. It's sort of hard to say? They look pretty much alive."

"Except they're headless."

"Except for that."

"… And why did they agree to this?"

"It saved them from disease and famine. They don't need to eat, and they don't seem to age or get sick."

"So, some necromancer waltzes up to a town full of starving plague victims and offers to chop off their heads so they can live forever?"

"It's what they told me. In writing, of course."

"Of course."
