From Daughter of the Goddess, a novella that is only 54 pages long. Sooooooo, I'm going to page 7 rather than 77. Just to set the scene, the priestesses pushed this girl Peaches into a bathing pool filled with oil, and she is now drowning:
She no longer wants to breathe, and the water is dark as she slips into the recesses of the pool. A light in the distance and she lifts her hand toward it, a farewell gesture.
I would have been useful. I would have tried.
The light creeps closer. A woman, smiling in the midst of the light, long hair floating in the water around her, reaches out a hand. Peaches lunges toward her, desperate to touch her.
As for my pick of victims:
- Wendy Swore
- Renee Miller
- S.M. Carrera
- Heather McCubbin
- Lani Woodland
- Melanie Marks
- Evan Joseph
