Excerpt from AMETHYST FLAME:
From Chapter One ~ Vaughn and Emma found three dead teenage girls in the Graveyard of Five Bridges. Emma, an alter witch has helped the girls to transition to the next life.
All three ghosts seemed to be communicating with each other and a moment later bits of clothing appeared, though more like smoke than real fabric. Colors as well. The center girl, who had the strongest personality, now wore a red tank top, blue jeans and running shoes. The one to the right donned red shorts, a dark blue crop top and navy sandals with flowers at the top of the t-strap. While the third wore a red plaid short dress, dark stockings and black Mary-Jane shoes. The girls seemed to like red.
They were lovely, each with long, curly, light brown hair and large, blue eyes.
The blue-jeans ghost drew close to Emma, then addressed her telepathically. You saved us once. I remember now. You, and this man, took us home the night we were abducted the first time.
The ghostly voice in Emma’s head made her feel dizzy, but she responded immediately. We did. It was the finest night of my life since becoming an alter witch.
Oh, you’re a witch. She shifted to look at Vaughn. But this man can’t see me, can he?
I don’t think so. And in case you’re wondering, Officer Vaughn is a vampire.
The ghost swept backward, rejoining her sisters. But she continued to talk with Emma. There was a lot of pain from what that madman was doing to us and he ordered vampires to take our blood. I think maybe the vampires were the ones who killed us. I remember getting weaker and weaker. And now we’re here.
By the pallor of their skin, Emma knew she was right. Once more, a terrible grief assailed her that these young women had been robbed of their lives. Yet, it cemented her determination to do what she could to prevent Loghry from continuing his abduction of innocent teens.
The girls, almost as one, shifted their attention upward to the ditch ridge. Emma started to turn to see what they were looking at, but suddenly the three spirits flew around both her and Vaughn. They cried out in loud voices, almost wailing.
The one with the blue jeans got in front of Emma and tried to speak, but no words formed. She seemed really distressed.
Emma attempted to make telepathic contact with her, but only static returned.
The wailing grew louder until Emma finally had to cover her ears. She didn’t understand what was wrong…
I hope you found yourself caught up in this excerpt from Chapter One of AMETHYST FLAME.
