I’ve been preparing for this moment all my life. Willing my mind to forget all that I have seen and heard and done before. Training my heart to loosen, to not hold my human emotions, such as they were. As if they were precious and could easily break. Where I was going there would be no need for feelings or ideas or fascinations. Nothing tinged with light belonged in a place where it was shunned by darkness, and certainly not in the black void of hope that was The Beyond – the fae realm.
One Dark Kiss
