The door wasn't there that morning.
  
  But now it was.  And Steven couldn't help but step through.
  
  So why is he at the hotel, and why does that man look and sound so much like him?
  
  And why does the touch of another suddenly make him want to vomit?

  It's actually based in the One King West Hotel in Toronto, where I stayed when visiting Wattpad HQ and the walk Steven takes is the walk to the HQ offices.  It was while having breakfast just as Steven does in this story that I came up with the idea.

The suspense begins! But why? Looks to me that fight was not necessary for Steven's sake but he doesn't even know where he is!

@ShaunAllen Intriguing, fine description of his sparse home. I particularly like the layer added with the bit of backstory: his parents, a quick glimpse into his childhood and history, and want more of that. V. and reading on.

You managed to make even a door sound dark, mysterious, and sexy 😂 and the way it contrasts with the brightness of it upon entering, makes the senses go bonkers!...love it and am intrigued to see where this story along with the door leads to.

Love the action, especially the tip of the tongue being bitten off *say in a lisp* 😂 and who are those people that sound so familiar to him? o_O
