Yours In Beyond (Deadly Kisses Anthology)
#17 in PARANORMAL
Inky blackness shrouded my vision.
My arms and legs felt senseless. My head felt light. Groggy. Almost, blissful.I had no idea where I was. Heck, I had no idea who I was.Slowly, the room came into focus.As my vision cleared further, I realized that it looked more like a dungeon.I pinched myself and felt nothing. I was in a dream. My tongue felt heavy and dry as sand as I desperately tried to regain my human speech.
A dark man with a kindly smile and warm brown eyes was eyeing me with concern. "Aron?"he said.
I finally remembered my name and then experienced
another wave of panic as I realized I could not remember my last name.As if sensing it,the man spoke gently, "I cannot answer any of your questions.But she will help determine your destiny."
He clasped my hand in his and handed me a single scrap of paper.
I stared at the single word scrawled on the piece of paper in my trembling fingers.
"I know it's a lot to take in,"The man continued, "But...before anything else. ..There is something you must know and accept.No matter how horrible or implausible it sounds."
I nodded my head again, afraid my voice would break if I tried to use it.
"You..."The man took a deep breath before continuing, "Are dead. "
