Create a Word Today
What could possibly be more fun than making up a witty new word? Well, to be honest, lots of things. But inventing words is still an enjoyable creative exercise. I made up several in less than an hour this evening, while half-watching an old movie. A few may be lame, but I hope you will discover one or two you enjoy. I’ve touched on the subject of inventing words in the past. But this approach…

Give it up for Day 5! Enough with the Rubtina lounging in bed together, it's time to get ghost hunting, baby! If you're so inspired, please tag the #RubtinaHalloween, and spread the joy! This story is based on a prompt that I got in a writing group: Your characters are driving at night and come across a lady in white (or other hitchhiker)", and I ran with it. To understand what I've established in this kind of Lovecraft AU, please check out my other stories 'Hell House' and 'Having Fun Isn't Hard' on my AO3, and you can read the Lady in White in it's entirety once it has been published. Thanks for reading and Happy Rubtina Halloween!
Tic and Leti were waiting outside when Christina and Ruby pulled up, and they quickly piled into the car, and began talking simultaneously.
“We were talking to Rich-” “He’s the guy who runs the inn-”
“Leti, I’m trying to tell the story here-” “Tic, I talked to him first! You can’t-”
“Whoa, whoa, slow down!” Ruby said sternly. “You first, Leti.”
Leti stuck her tongue out at Tic and continued. “We were just talking to Rich, and he was talking about the railroad, and we thought, why not, we’ll ask him about the Lady in White. He never saw her himself, but he knows some folks who did, and they swear up and down that she’s real, and since she came back, she’s been even angrier.”
Tic broke in. “And when we told him we were going to the Stills’ Place, and he told us to look at the new railroad construction that’s going on over there.”
“Apparently, the tracks are going right through the property. They had to dig a bunch of it up, and dynamite a little here and there, and it started early last year, and then only a little bit later, the Lady in White shows up.”
“They must have disturbed the book or her or both, and that’s where we’ve gotta start. Tell me y’all got the spell finished.”
“We wouldn’t be here if we hadn’t, Tic.” Ruby said.
Christina nodded. “Ruby handled it like a pro.”
“Not the only thing I handled like a pro.” She pinched Christina’s side for good measure, and relished the scandalized looks on Tic and Leti’s faces.
“Ruby!” gasped Leti.
“Oh please, how many times have I had to listen to you and Tic banging up against every wall in the place?”
“It’s not the same!”
“We can tell Leti all about our exploits later, darling.” Interrupted Christina, who gestured to the last traces of daylight that were disappearing over the horizon. “We need to get going. Have you still got that map?”
Ruby nodded, and pulled it out of the glove compartment, pointing the way.
The drive was an uneventful one taking less than half an hour. Christina sped along the main roads, but had to slow down significantly when they turned down one dirt road after another. They passed several darkened shacks that stood beside abandoned construction equipment.
“Atlantic Coast Line has the workers at home while they wait on some new permits or something. They’re supposed to be back in a few weeks, but in the meantime, we’ll have the whole place to ourselves.”
Ruby looked uneasy. “No one near enough to hear us calling for help.”
“It won’t come to that. We’re ready.” Christina put a steadying hand on her arm. “Anyway, you’re no slouch, I wouldn’t bet against you in a fight with anyone, supernatural or not.”
Leti looked at them from the backseat. She knew that the words were just what Ruby needed to hear as she watched her sister beam from the passenger side, though Ruby tittered and swatted at Christina playfully. The smile on Christina’s face was one that she’d rarely seen, and one that she’d never seen pointed at her, though she wasn’t sure if she wanted to. There was something she found disconcerting about an authentic Christina smile. She was used to the mocking ones, the ones that said nothing, but said everything, even the ones of sad pity, as if she were pitiable. But this one was open, so free, it made Leti want to shout. How dare she get to enjoy her happiness when she had hurt and killed so many? How could she get to have her sister when she had always treated them with so much disdain?
She looked again. Christina had looked back towards the road, but Ruby was still looking at her with a soft smile. Their hands were no doubt intertwined on the seat between them, though Ruby was clearly resisting the urge to scoot closer. Of all the people that Ruby had to fall for, why would it have to be that lying, sneaking, terrible Christina Braithwhite? They needed to circle the wagons, but Ruby was letting their enemy right into their midsts.
But even Leti wasn’t blind enough not to notice how much Ruby loved her. Yes, ‘loved’, even if Ruby hadn’t realized it herself yet. If there was nothing else she could do, then the least she could try was to keep Ruby safe. Not just her body either, but her heart as well.
Leti leaned forward, coming in between them. “How much farther now?”
Ruby rolled her eyes at the obvious attempt of her little sister to be a nuisance. She pulled up the map regardless, and pointed to the road.
“That’s us.” She traced to a spot that was only about a mile away. “That’s where the farm used to be. Chris is going to stop us about half a mile out, and we’ll walk up. We want to come in slow and circle around so we can lay down any protection spells we’ll need to. Chris and Tic will be on that. You and I will prepare things for the ritual.”
“Should we split up like that?” Tic asked, sitting forward as well.
“Not wanting to spend one on one with me, Tic?”
“The last thing I want to do is be stumbling around the woods while our girlfriends are staring down a dangerous spirit.”
They all turned to look at Tic, even Christina slowly pulling the car to a stop to turn in her seat.
“What?” He said, to their looks.
“You called Ruby my girlfriend.” Christina said, her eyebrows raised in surprise.
“I-I just meant-.” Tic struggled for a second. “It’s clear y’all have got something going on, and I’ve never been the kind of person… I mean, if you do what you want to do, I just I guess, y’all can do whatever you want as long as Ruby’s happy.” He finished weakly.
Ruby’s face broke into a grin. “We’ve got Tic on board, all we need to do is recruit Leti and the Freemans are all in.”
Leti crossed her arms. “I’m still a Lewis, dammit.”
“I’m just saying, are they going to be okay out there, Christina?” Tic continued.
“Leti still has the mark, right? Well Ruby is going to get the best protection spell that I’ve ever crafted. But, if we want to make sure that Sarah has no way of escaping, we’ll have to lock the area up tight. And we can only do that if we’re together.”
“You’ve got a spell in mind?”
“Several, actually. Do you think you’re up to the challenge?”
“I’ve been preparing too, Braithwhite, I might surprise you.”
“Bring it on, Atticus.”
Christina stepped back on the gas, the car took off again and within a few minutes, they’d arrived at their destination. It was hard to say how close it was, but the moon was now high in the sky, and they could see the equipment for the tracks that was laid out nearby.
Christina approached Ruby, taking a box out of her pocket, and opening it gingerly. “I made this before we left Chicago. I put together the spell myself. It’s my own creation. The necklace I didn’t make, but I did tell the jeweler what I wanted.”
She pulled a beautiful necklace from the box. It was set on a golden chain, and was a representation of the big dipper. The three stones of the ‘handle’ were a bright, blue sapphire, and the ‘cup’ were four flawless rubies.
Ruby gasped when she saw it, and brought her hands with her mouth. “Chris! This is beautiful.”
Christina smiled. “Can I put it on you?”
Ruby nodded and Christina stood in front of her, fastening the necklace so that her arms were around Ruby.
She watched Christina concentrate, and then say a small spell. To Ruby’s questioning glance, she answered.
“It’s a tiny enchantment to make sure that no one can remove it without me knowing about it.”
“Even me?” Ruby asked, her eyes smiling.
“You can remove it whenever you want. But I hope you won’t.”
Ruby cupped Christina’s face in her hands. “It’s more than a spell or protection, Christina, this is the most beautiful gift I’ve ever gotten. I’ll never take it off.”
She kissed Christina chastely, and pulled away, fingering the necklace.
“When did you even have time to make something like this?”
“I have my methods.” Christina said with a wink.
Nearby Tic and Leti said their goodbyes, and finally, Leti came to join her sister.
“You two be careful.”
“I was going to say the same to you.” Tic responded.
Christina leveled her gaze at Ruby and Leti. “We’ll be fine. Just prepare the ritual, and stay together. We’ll meet up with you soon. Stick to the plan.”
With that they were off, and Ruby and Leti started walking along the dirt road. They walked for a while in silence, but then Leti spoke up.
“Can I see that map?”
Ruby handed it over. “We’re not far, Christina was right. Maybe fifteen minutes. They’ll have to take the longer way around, so maybe a half and hour or forty five before we can start.”
Leti studied her sister for a moment. “You’re really at home with this magic stuff, huh?”
“No, not so much. I’d rather pray about it, if I’m being honest. Tic loves it. He’ll stay up all night reading those books that he’s found, and practicing new things. I don’t know if it’s for me.”
“But, you’ve got that protection spell.” Ruby countered.
“Sure, and it’s come in plenty handy, But I don’t know the first thing about how it works. I get that magic can be helpful, and I know that it’s saved my butt plenty of times. But it can be dangerous too. It just seems that things have gotten so much more complicated since we found out about it. Since Ardham and everything since.”
“Sure, but there have been good things too. We’ve gotten to help so many folks, and put an end to people like Lancaster who would have never stopped hurting anyone who got in their way.”
They walked a little longer as they thought about the myriad ways things had changed for them in only the last year.
“And you met Christina.” Leti offered.
Ruby gave her a sidelong look. “Are you listing that with the positives or the negatives?”
Leti gave a small laugh. “I’m still trying to figure that out.” She paused for a moment. “But, I’m trying to understand, Ruby, I really am. I’m trying.”
“I can appreciate that.” Ruby said. “It’s nice to be on the same page for once. We haven’t in a long time.”
“Yeah.” Leti said, handing the map back to Ruby, who stopped to investigate it and get her bearings again. “I didn’t see myself changing my mind any time soon, but what with Tic said, and when she gave you that necklace, I wonder if there really is something stirring in that cold heart of hers.”
Leti expected an argument from Ruby, but the other woman was still looking intently at the map and frowning.
“What is it?” She came around to look over Ruby’s shoulder.
“Here.” Ruby said, pointing to a point on the map. The moon was so high and bright in the sky that it illuminated the page clearly, and Leti saw something that she hadn’t noticed before. Near where the main house had stood, one that was so clearly labeled, was another area marked “ALTAR”.
“Was that there before? I don’t remember it.”
“Maybe we didn’t notice? But I was looking all over it earlier. Christina suggested I find the best place for the binding ritual, and I thought that might be the main house. But an altar....”
“Did Cassandra mark that?”
“She must have.”
“Well, we’ve got time. Why don’t we go take a look around? Maybe the voodoo that you do will work a bit better there. Anyway, it’s close to the house. If we decide to use it, we can just holler for them to come to us.”
Ruby nodded. “That sounds good, let’s go see.”
They walked past a grown over fence post, and though the house was long gone, it was clear where it had stood. No one had come to remove the rubble, and even the train tracks passed nearby, but not directly over where the house had been.
Ruby approached the area carefully. She wasn’t as sensitive to magic as Christina or Tic, but the hairs on the back of her neck were standing on end. There was something powerful here.
“Keep an eye out, Leti.”
Leti rolled her eyes. “You know, Ruby, just because you’ve got a little studyin’ in magic don’t mean you can tell me-”
There was a snap and a crash, and Ruby turned quickly enough to see that Leti had disappeared into the earth.
Ruby moved carefully towards the space that Leti had disappeared to.
“Leti!” She called out desperately.
There was no response, and Ruby got on all fours, and crawled to the edge of the hole.
“Leti!” She screamed again into the inky black of the ground. “Leti!”
Suddenly, the ground beneath her began to shift, and before she could react, she, too, tumbled into the dark.
