Valle : Book 2 of the Heku Series
Emily sighed and looked up at him, “I don’t know why you… and the
why me part is none of your business.”
While she pretended to read her book, Emily’s mind struggled to
remember when she was taken. Something terrible happened, she could
feel it in the pit of her stomach, but she couldn’t remember what. She
turned away from Tim when tears came into her eyes. She couldn’t
remember if something happened to Chevalier or even to Kyle. What if
no one was looking for her? What if this was her new life, tucked away
and tormented by these heku?
Emily felt her stomach turn, so she casually walked into the bathroom,
shut and locked the door, and then collapsed onto the floor. She didn’t
know how long she had been going between the toilet and the cool floor,
but apparently it was long enough for Tim to become suspicious.
“Are you ok in there?” he asked, knocking on the door.
“Yes,” she managed to say weakly.
“Ok,” he responded, but he didn’t sound convinced.
Once she felt her stomach settled enough, she walked directly to the
bedroom and laid down on the bed.
There were bodies lined up along the pier. Everywhere she looked she
saw faces she knew, watching from unseeing eyes. There was blood
dripping off the wooden planks, turning the water scarlet red. She
searched through the bodies trying to find him. She was being watched,
she could tell. When she turned around, there were more bodies piled
up. Someone was killing everyone she knew.
