Into the Darkness
(Darkness Falls #1)
Jan 1st -5th
Jan 1st -5th
It was supposed to be a way to end the devastation in the Middle East, but instead a darkness has been unleashed unlike anything the world has ever seen.
Ike Glass is well versed in chaos, but even he is unprepared for what the world will become after the outbreak. Ace Cullen has been loyal to his country ever since he was brought to the United States as a young boy, but it’s difficult to stand by a country that can’t even take responsibility for their own actions. Phoenix Blue just wants a night of mindless sex…is that too much to ask? Always a black sheep, she shocks everyone as she finds the strength inside herself to protect the ones she cares about and fight to see another day. They were strangers when the virus took over, but tragedy will bring them together in ways they never thought possible as they descend into the darkness.
I’m soaking wet when I wake up in the middle of the night, but as I reach up and touch my side of the bed and clothes, I realize it’s not me. Robyn is drenched in sweat; it is seeping through the bed sheets.
“Robyn.” I attempt to stir her by shaking her gently. “Robyn.”
I turn on my bedside lamp quickly, illuminating our dark room.
“Robyn, wake up.” When she finally stirs and opens her eyes—more than one vein has popped in each of her eyes. My biggest fear has just come true. I couldn’t protect her from the infection.
I’ve been careful not to come in contact with her saliva or blood, but what about my daughter? “Robyn, you’re soaking wet babe, you should change.”
I pull her up so she’s now seated on the bed, but she looks disoriented, confused, and even a bit agitated.
“Why did you wake me up?” she slurs, semi-coherent.
“You’re running a fever.” I hurriedly grab a change of clothes for her and help her into them before changing the bedspread and putting her back to bed. They said the virus attacks unhealthy hosts at an unusually fast rate…my wife has sickle cell anemia. The virus is probably feasting on her unhealthy insides. I shudder at the thought.
Quickly, I make my way out into the hallway and over to Asia’s room. She appears to be sleeping soundly, so I don’t wake her. I will check on her in the morning. I feel sick to my stomach as I grab a knife from the kitchen and carry it back to our bedroom. Instead of lying down next to Robyn, I end up seated in the rocking chair in the far corner of the room, silently watching her, gripping the knife tightly. I know I’m in denial. I know that I’ve already lost her, but I can’t do it. No matter who or what she is now, I can’t hurt my wife.
