The Ink
by Antigone

Overview


Animal is there, bent double, face to the earth, in the muck, protecting Little Girl from the pain of existence in the belly of the barn and the horrifying abuse at the hands of Farmer. This is where she is finally found, in the subterranean pen, and "saved." Animal is taken in and cared for, but as she can not be Little Girl, with her grunts and squeals and twisted body, she is not truly loved. Animal craves a mother's love. She has not had it since the decomposing head of her own Momma kept her company in the darkness of her pen. This desire to please her new master motivates her search for Little Girl in the Ink. Animal finds her there and sacrifices once again, this time to release Little Girl for new Momma to love, Animal takes her place in the Ink. Will Little Girl be the perfect daughter for new Momma, or will the inheritance of sickness spreading like a wild fire already have burnt Little Girl's mind to ash? Had Animal protected Little Girl, or had Little Girl been peeping all along through her eyes, watching and learning?

Will Little Girl be the perfect daughter for new Momma, or will the inheritance of sickness spreading like a wild fire already have burnt Little Girl's mind to ash? Had Animal protected Little Girl, or had Little Girl been peeping all along through her eyes, watching and learning? This book is uncomfortable. It is gruesome. It is brutal in its look at topics that impact human beings, especially those who have or continue to suffer from how they were raised, how much pain we can endure and the magic of the mind to create ways to survive it, and confronting ideas about God, Satan, Sickness and their role in it all. The author, Antigone, has a lineage of atrocity. She understands the need to survive, tasted her mortality like fresh blood on the lips, and can point twisted fingers at the wolves who raised her, the wolves who raised them, and the Great One who spectated. Hopefully, this story elicits fear and suspense, but also thought.

About the author


Antigone is a writer from the American Wilderness, where she has outwitted the wolves from birth. She is a survivor, sufferer, healer, and storyteller. Since Antigone was young, stories filled her head, stories of the pain of life spilling forth onto paper, ripped up and tossed away to make room for more. She wrote to breathe, to snatch the darkness brewing inside and birth it, see how ugly it was and throw it in the garbage with all the others. Antigone was born surrounded by bright light, but the light grew dim in the brush where she struggled to grow. But Antigone, producing more and more stories in her head, grew up stronger than the wolves and healed much of her pain by trudging through the dark matter her upbringing gifted her. She had managed to keep it together and shine her light. Then one day, years later, she realized that the dark matter was still in there. And the storytelling of her youth, her safe haven, her solace in troubling and terrifying times, was coming back to save her. Antigone reveled in her freedom while writing this, her first published work, The Ink. A work of exploring mommy and daddy issues, trauma and coping issues, and issues with the Great One. What is to blame for our troubles? Sickness or evil, nature or nurture, lightness or the omnipresent dark? Antigone hopes you enjoy the trip into the Ink, follow the umbilical cord and watch out for slop-mommas tripping past you and Farmer, drool dripping from his jowls, lumbering through the Ink to give you the pole. Stay on the path and away from the fringe. Sickness is crowding the periphery, and it fills with black. Follow the dim light of hope. Birth is waiting.
