A Little Teaser from The Darkest Legacy: Betrayal

It’s 2 days before release day so here is a small teaser to get you ready!


“Natalia!” my mother screamed, “Natalia! Call 911. Now! Your sister is dying!”
Was I dying? It actually felt like I might be and I prayed that the ball of pain would just explode so that I could experience the sweet ease of relief.
I tried to lift myself up but all the fingers touching me had other ideas. My mother’s hands gently pushed me back down while the evil fingers in my skull decided to use my brain as a stress ball. They weren’t very gentle as they squeezed and squeezed and squeezed. The tighter they squashed my brain, the tighter my body curled up into a ball. I needed the pain to stop. I wanted to just rip my head off my neck and toss it into the San Francisco Bay.
I reached out and grasped my mother’s hand. “Mom” I whispered to her, my voice sounded very light and thin. Maybe I was dying. “Make it stop. Please, make it stop!”
That sentence. That one simple sentence.
It was like a hole had been drilled open and all the pain started to ooze out. The white sheets in front of my eyes began to lift and I could make out the fuzzy edges and the blurry shape of my terror-stricken mother slowly came into focus. I cautiously lifted my head and used my free hand to feel the ground around me. Where was the pain? What did it look like? I thought I would feel the sharp, wet stickiness of it underneath my head but the ground was bone dry.
