#atozchallenge – R is for Rabisu, lurking in shadows

They hide in dark corners, waiting to strike.

A Rabisu is an Akkadian demon who lurks in the thresholds of houses and in the dark shadows of alleys. The Rabisu cannot be barred by bolted doors or locked windows, as they will find even the tiniest cracks and slither through them like snakes. Only an unbroken line of the purest sea salt can truly bar the Rabisu’s path.

When they hunt, they are like vampires, feeding on life energy and devouring the weak. You’d best examine the shadows carefully when you traverse dark, unkown spaces.

      Awesome! I think I got a lot of your visitors for this post. I hope some of those visitors stay – I write a lot of genres, but this whole A-to-Z thing is my desire to try more horror as well as fantasy / sci-fi. I hope to have more content after this month for those who came from occult / horror interest sites.

    Particles of shadow
    where deepest fears personify
    into the shapes of demons
    that drink the souls of those
    who venture beyond the safety
    of the hearth
