An excerpt from the upcoming short story “Tales of Destiny- Seraph”:
But just as sleep was just about to take her away, she heard distant music. It was almost tribal in nature but with a sad melody complimenting the aggressive drums. The interesting thing was that the music did not come from Parta(her hometown). It did not come from anywhere near the ground…it was coming from the sky.
Seraph opened her eyes to look up at the clear blue sky. The music was getting louder as that smell grew stronger… but now there was a sweetness that went along with the sourness. She did a double take because she thought she just saw two beings coming down from the sky.
One woman looked like she was dressed in black; the other woman was dressed in white. Seraph closed her eyes again because this clearly had to be a dream. There was no way that there could be two women falling, floating, from the sky. But the increasingly loud music told her otherwise.
The two women were a long way off and Seraph had no idea what to do about all of this. Was she going insane? Was this imagery just a byproduct of her mother’s death? Or was this just a vivid dream?
The two floating women were almost at ground level as Seraph had the insane idea to run down Pan Hill to meet them at the open grass plain. But, instead of touching down on the ground… they went straight through it.
