It’s WIPpet Wednesday again, and this time I’m going to keep it short and sweet!
First let me thank K.L. Schwengel for the opportunity to share, and everyone who supported me last week. I rewrote the introduction and it’s looking better. I’m almost happy with it!
So you’ve been introduced to Audrey, you’ve had a taste of the shift from Keith’s perspective, so the snippet this week will be Audrey’s first introduction to interdimensional travel. For the math I’ve added up the numbers in the year and provided 7 paragraphs.
I shook my head, trying to clear the humming in my ears. The sounds were duller now, my vision blurred. I was looking through some kind of membrane and it was closing in on me. It pulled me further and further inside, until I wanted to scream for it to end.
My father hadn’t prepared me for this. If I could see the enemy I could fight, but I had no way of defending myself against this.
Heat travelled along my skin, but it didn’t burn. There was no pain. I held onto that as everything faded and I was engulfed by a shocking blast of light. It was everywhere. Even when I closed my eyes it pierced right through me.
I couldn’t deny the strange pull; a demand in my blood that told me to let go. I had little choice but to obey.
In the next moment a wave of nausea caught me unaware and I clenched my teeth to control it. The light receded, little by little and my skin felt clammy now, rather than hot.
The silence was deafening and though I was afraid, I opened my eyes, holding my breath until the spinning stopped. The world settled around me slowly, sharpening as I exhaled the air caught in my lungs.
I was no longer at home. I was out in the open, somewhere strangely familiar.
Thanks, as always, for reading. I look forward to catching up on your news.
