Life and other Disasters
After taking an ecstasy pill, Ava's trip goes terribly wrong and her boyfriend leaves her for dead on the street. Doctors in the hospital fight for her life, and she sees it all happen. Somehow she stepped out of her body and observes it all from another world. A world that doesn't belong to the living nor to the dead.
She tries to find her way around in this strange world, meeting its strange inhabitants. Some are normal humans, patiently waiting what their fate will be, some are not so human as they seem to be. Everything seems fine, until David shows up. She knows that it's her job to help him, but it seems as if he doesn't want to be helped. And he's certainly not in a hurry to move on. Their fates seem to be connected, but she can't find out how and time is running out fast. She needs to unravel the secret that binds them or else she might be lost forever.
Warning: This story contains subjects like death, anxiety, drugs, substance abuse, some romance and hopefully loads of (dark) humor. If any of this sets you off, this might not be the story for you. Also: I'm aiming for a bitter sweet end (in fact, I already wrote it), so if you're more a happy-ever-after type, keep that in mind if you decide to tag along.
