A hand burst out from the ground
It was right there he had been buried right in the mound~
But the others wondered where Sal could be-
his body had not yet been found...
He stretched his body, his bones cracked, snapped & popped back into place—
Sal was moving at a snail’s pace.
His wife, sat in shock with her older brother,
he brought out his spell book and told his sister not to worry.
He stared at the front door and smiled. His work here was done.
There was a knock at the door, Sal’s wife opened it & screamed in fright- the moment she had a terrifying sight of her dear, Sal.
What kind of sorcery was this?
Her brother comforted her. He leaned toward her and kissed her cheek.
‘This is my gift to you, Veronika!’
with that he bid his sister adieu and walked past Sal, leaving Veronika with her formerly dead, now somewhat alive, husband.
Right outside the Closed front door. Veronika’s brother waved his hand and then a cloud of smoke rose from the ground. It swept underneath the door and swirled around Sal.
Veronika looked in shock, as Sal’s decaying skin now turned back to living flesh. She gasped and her eyes grew wider the moment Sal now looked more alive, & healthier than he did not so long ago.
Sal smiled and gave his wife a tight squeeze, lifting her off the ground. She didn’t know if she needed to scream (again), but with joy this time...or to start crying from this crazy night..
Veronika was really certain about one thing. Her brother was the one behind Sal’s return. She sighed. This was a lot for her to think about. After her neighbor had managed to help her with getting rid of Sal in a snap.
While Veronika was reflecting back and thinking of what to do next, she wondered if her brother knew what she had done. If so, then this was his way of making sure she got what she deserved. By bringing Sal back, he was sure that she wouldn’t try to kill him again. Then again, if she tried to take his life, she would be in for a startling surprise.
Sal was back in the land of the living. Since he had been in the realm of the dead, and crossed back over, he was now nearly Immortal. Thanks to Veronika’s brother and his handiwork, Sal was almost indestructible.
