Teaser Tuesday


Silence. At last one of them sighs—Nikolas?. It doesn’t sound human, or even like a animal. More like the sifting of wind through an evergreen. But that’s when the darkness lifts like a movie fade-in, and I’m lying in a bed with rails, surrounded by white walls.

“Where am I?” I finger sheets that now appear to be ordinary sheets, not a lethal web. “In the hospital?” The room looks wrong, too bare somehow. My eyes won’t focus. Everything’s blurry, misshapen. Maybe I cracked my skull open when I hit that tub.

“No.” Nikolas’s disembodied voice vibrates above me. "Because you expected to be in a hospital room, that is exactly what you see.”

I shake the side rail, solid and real in my hand. “I didn’t expect to be anywhere. I was taking a bath."

“In your sub-conscience,” he clarifies grandly.

Spying the emergency button, I mash it hard three times in a row. No nurse flutters in, asking what I need

I jump when Aracely giggles. “Silly girl. It’s an illusion.”
