THE DEATH KISS

By Natasha Mubashar All Rights Reserved ©

Other / Mystery

Blurb

Lily Christensen escaped a near death experience when she was 10. All she could remember from that day was the sound of a flute. A tune that she called, the death tune. The music she always heard before someone died. Her world was falling apart until she came across gorgeous Adrian Jones. Strangely, Adrian played the tune she had always feared from. Who's this new guy Adrian? And what's his connection with the death of so many people?

prologue

I was sinking deeper into the darkness, the water turned from transparent to the darkest shades of blue-inky blue.

It turned into black as I kept drowning. My voice converted into mute bubbles, as I whispered the last words.

“Mom!”

Somewhere, far far away, I heard the faint voice of my mother calling for help.

“Lily! Somebody help.”

I dropped my pink shoe in the river and as I tried to pick it up, I drifted away with the current.

It was not an ordinary shoe, but the last present I received from my father on my 10th birthday three months ago, just two days before his death.

I had seen a lot for my age, more than the other kids at my school. I have lost three loved ones in a row, my twin brothers before my dad.

Mother told me that all of them went to heavens and became angels.

May be, I was ready to be one too.

I gave up on my hope to survive now, and closed my eyes accepting my defeat, feeling the last breathe leaving from my lungs escaping through my trembling lips.

I heard music- a tune of a flute. I could feel my soul floating out of my body, following the note, as the music grew louder and louder.

It wasn’t the first time; I had heard it before too.

I had heard this tune many times, strangely right before the death of a family member.

My fate was confirmed now- Death.

But suddenly, the music stopped and a queer silence took control of the situation.

I felt someone’s hands around me, pulling me up to the surface of water.

I felt light as a feather, waiting for the water to lift me up.

Anything could be forgotten, but not that tune that always played as a warning sign of death.

Death,

The biggest reality that no one can deny.

Whether you die rich, or die poor. Whether you die young, or die old.

The blind ended street of life always end on death.

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

CornflowerBlues: I'm liking everything about this story so far: the brazen detective, the way he gave in to temptation, the temptation (<3!!), and the unexpectedly complex backdrop of his job and the case he's working. The story is well written, and despite its erotica tag, has an intriguing detective story and a...

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,.

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

M.L. Bull: Hello, Aalia!Your story compelled the emotional pain and struggle of a teenage girl very well..

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...
