Tension

I knew I as in trouble when alI I could see is me, my body, rummaging around on the floor looking for my eyes.

I’m on all fours, my mouth wide, uttering sounds I cannot hear, with my hands erratically patting across the carpet.

Yet I can feel air, cold air, rushing into my sockets heightening my anxiety and pain; striking against nerve endings and what I assume is my brain.

I don’t see blood, but I do see a yellow liquid just below my eyes.

I can’t direct my body here under a chair.

Frantically I search. Sweat beads on my brow.

I need my eyes.

I need my body.

How did this happen?

Oh yes, I remember. I remember now because I can see him.

I can see the figure shrouded in shadow hovering over my back, axe in his left hand.

He removed my eyes.

He plucked them out with a fork.

Isabella Lunawood: Cassandra Farelli is a short but wonderful read - it leaves you thinking, makes you ask questions and leaves you guessing! It is a spin off series from Fusion of Fantasy, in which Cassandra is mentioned in, ‘In Dreaming Reality’ and in which she has a much bigger role - this book shows where she ...

Abby: I believe this book is good. I thought I would be scared for life, however only 1 part made me scared. I wish you to write something scarier but for now, it is incredible. I hope you write more stories and to never give up. I liked it. 😊

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...
