Teaser Sunday #7
Welcome to teaser Sunday!!! Each
week, I will post a teaser from one of my current releases or a work in
progress. Stay tuned and enjoy!
This is just a little clip from Dissolve<3 br="">3>
Through all the mess,
I managed to actually have a peaceful dream. I dreamt I was an incandescent
purple butterfly floating lightly through the summer air. I reveled in the warm
night and the soft breeze that encompassed me. Looking up, I took in the sight
of a gibbon’s moon waning in the inky night amongst twinkling stars.
Gentle as the breeze
itself, I landed on a blade of grass. I was surrounded by an entire field of
swaying grass and I sank down to the soft earth. Time seemed to stand still as
I took in the warm peaceful night.
That was when I woke
up, and I meant that I really woke up. I was lying in a meadow, the cool earth
beneath me. My blue eyes snapped open in panic. I soon realized that the moon,
the breeze, and the grass were no figment of my imagination.
Naked and panicked,
my mind began racing as all the thoughts course through it at once. Where was
I? How was I going to get back to the motel? Exposed, I tried to steady my
breathing for fear of a panic attack. I stood up, looking around under the
cover of darkness. My heart raced and then skipped a beat as I saw the motel
just off to the left of my field of vision.
Knowing that I
couldn’t walk back there naked, I chose the option to dissolve. I was shaking
and it was hard to gain my bearings. Sinking down to the ground, I remembered
the trick Nessa taught me. After a few tries, I managed to succeed. I was a
dandelion and my particles were molecules floating carelessly on the wind like
fluffy bits of seeds.
Once again, the
feeling of the soft breeze surrounded me. I swirled with the flow of the air
toward the motel and soon I was seeping into the corners of the mildew-laden
door. Wasting no time, I reformed on the other side and quietly slid on my
clothes. Too freaked to process any of this, I climbed back into bed and slowed
my breathing to a steady rhythm.
