PRELUDE TO BOOK II – THE DEAD GAME SERIES

house in woods

 

 

Has End House returned to Oasis?

Our chanting had cast it to sea.
 
It can’t be back.
 
We can’t be under attack.

 

Silence fills the forest.

A cold breeze tickles my arms.

I follow the path through

a thick copse of trees.

 

The sky darkens.

A shadow looms in the distance.

I enter the clearing.

Seagulls cry and swoop low.

 

I halt by a deep hole.

The spot where End House had stood.

A hard shove

And I’m falling.

 

Laughter follows my descent.

I hit rock bottom. 

A tunnel stretches before me.

Light at its end.

 

THE DEAD GAME CONTINUES

PRELUDE TO BOOK II

RETURN FOR ME

 

 

My thoughts drift to him.

He fills me with longing.

Cold as the night air.

He returns for me.

I dare not go to him.

I must resist his lure.

Or my light will turn dark.

THE DEAD GAME

 

COME WITH ME INTO THE NIGHT

Guess who?

It’s me, honey.

I’ve had a long day at work.

It has made me feel grumpy.

I feel changed in some way.

Do my hands feel furry?

They look furry to me.

All of a sudden I’m hungry.

Hungry for you, my darling.

Come with me and

we’ll dance into the night.

The night holds mystery and

adventure for us.

There are creatures who walk the night.

Come with me…
