This is part of my prologue from book 1, (tentatively named) ‘Fairies in the Wind.’
As the first rays of the brilliantly red sunrise filled the sky, something disrupted the silence of the forest. A voice was chanting, and as it ended, reality shifted. The bounds of human nature were shattered, and the girl disappeared into nothingness.
As she tumbled between the junction of the worlds, her thoughts were a frantic stream of panic.
This is not right!
What did she do to me?!
That was the last thought she had before excruciating pain overtook her senses.
Pain. Agony, unlike any other she’d ever experienced, pierced through every inch of her body. It was like a million tiny knives stabbing through her skin. A searing, ripping feeling exploded from the centre of her spine and caused her entire body to shudder. Her thoughts were a blur as the convulsions intensified…what’s happening? I need it to stop.
She plunged through turbulent air. She felt as though she was being pulled from every direction. The most severe tugging seemed to originate in her back.
She had lost all bearings and didn’t have a clue which way was upward. Not that it mattered anyway. She was in no fit state to think about directions.
There was a blinding yellow light, and then nothing.
