Beneath the Skin

The man looks on as the woman smiles a sinister smile.  She reaches up and grabs her chin before pulling downward.  The skin slides easily off of her face, revealing leathery green flesh beneath.  The creature’s mouth is filled with long barbed teeth, and a forked tongue runs along the points hungrily.  She blinks her eyes, and the lids open to reveal red and black orbs that stare directly at and into him.

He laughs and shakes his head in disbelief.

“You too, huh?” he says, pulling the mask from his own face.
