#15 An Answered Scream ( Part III)
“Here, now. That’s enough. You were sent to go get her. Not bring her here.” A new voice said. A shadow fell across my feet. It was solid and wide and no-nonsense. When the great gaspings for air stopped, when I no longer sucked in breath against the psychic venom, I straightened. The woman was as her shadow indicated: solid and forthright. And though her eyes were cold they also made a promise that I dared not let go of: I would survive this. I would survive this misery much as I’d survived everything that came before. All the betrayals that came before.I would survive this thing my husband brought down upon my head.
