    (Note – I don’t want to be in the contest, but this sounded fun, so here’s my stab at it.)

    “And…. chest out, feet spread,” Sarah knelt down, clicking the shutter several times. “Now, staff higher,” she checked the view finder then looked at the model. “No, no. Not like that. You look like you’re going to hit me.”

    She handed the camera to her assistant and grasped the staff. Her model glared at her, yanking it from her grasp, his low growl sending a chill through her.

    “Oookaay,” Sarah said, stepping back slightly and patting his chest in a soothing manner. “Let’s try this. Put the staff behind your back,” she motioned with her hands and the model complied. “Good. Now, chest out, shoulders back. Head down.” She grasped his cheeks between both hands, tilting his head toward the ground. His skin felt unnaturally cold. Sarah was surprised, she was sweating under all the lights and smoke from the set on the photo shoot. “Eyes up, look at me.”

    The model growled, raising his eyes to her.

    “Great! That’s great.” Sarah held her hands up in front of her, looking him up and down. “Hold that pose!” She hurried back, grabbed the camera, and proceeded to take shot after shot as she knelt, stood, and moved around him. The clicking of her camera was the only sound besides her models heavy breathing, which was punctuated with low growls.

    “Ok, thanks.” She flipped through the photos in her camera’s viewfinder, nodding in satisfaction. “That’s it.” She wanted to take more photographs, but the model was so uncooperative she didn’t want to push her luck. “Thanks a bunch,” she waved him off towards the dressing room.

    “When you get back to costuming, please tell Manual he did an awesome job. You look terrific. Raphael in makeup too. Outstanding!” Sarah yelled at his back. He stopped, turning to glare at her.

    The man planted his booted feet, drawing himself up, and narrowed his eyes, staring at them as the end of his staff thunked heavily onto the ground.

    Sarah had done so many photo shoots with Linda, she and her assistant shared brain cells. “Where do they come up with these models?” Linda whispered, as she peered over Sarah’s shoulder looking at the photos. “He looked amazing, but was so slow at following direction.”

    “Yeah, I know,” Sarah shrugged. “But look at these,” she tapped the tiny screen on the camera. “These shots are incredible.”

    A low male voice interrupted them, “I’m here for the voodoo king photo shoot. Name’s Ace. Where do you want me?”

    Sarah and Linda both turned toward the newcomer, their jaws dropping as they looked Ace up and down. He was dressed much like the guy who’d been there moments before, but not near as realistic.

    “But…” Linda pointed toward the first model, Sarah glancing that direction. Both women gasped.

    The voodoo king had disappeared.
