Come Daybreak (COMPLETE SHORT STORY)
Apollonia's Halloween night has ended in a nightmare.
Trapped with a preternaturally beautiful, tragic man, what should be a situation filled with erotic possibility is only a deadly game. She has been chosen for the year's sacrifice, and he is to be her means of execution.
Yet, there is hope for her, as long as she follows the simple rules of the game that he has played for far too long:
Give into him, and he will kill her come daybreak.
Spurn him and she will be allowed to flee with her life.
Is it possible, however, that she's not the one who most deserves to escape?
