I still remember the day I saw her. She had big dark eyes, natural red lips, and voluminous long hair that was flowing like a fountain. She was beautiful. Who could have guessed that she was 250 years old already? My brothers and cousins were gawking at her. I couldn’t help myself from falling for her, and I instantly said yes to the marriage.
I loved her dearly; her every wish was my command.
I would have been alive only if I had known on the 15th day of our wedding she would sacrifice me to the demons to retain her youth and immortal life.

This is the shortest horror story I have ever read. At first I thought its going to be something romantic. But that ending, spooky
