Chapter One
Tourniquet


Distant drumbeats reverberate inside my chest. I’m lying on the earth in a thin white dress and nothing else. The chill of the night coaxes my nipples erect. An electric charge in the air scatters goose bumps all over my skin. Chanting women in flowing dresses dance around me, stomping and clapping. Their jerky movements spill their long hair over their slender shoulders. Their words sound familiar, yet too confusing for me to understand. Rhyming, like they are casting some spell. I concentrate on my breathing. In and out. In and out. In sync with the drumming. Several torches surround us in a circle. Smoke curls toward the darkening sky from their flames. An acrid, almost choking smell rips up my nostrils. Yet, I have to inhale, no matter how vile the odor. 

A wrinkle-faced woman with white hair steps forward. Her ruby cloak stands out in the firelight. She says something in a murmuring language that is garbled when the words reach my ears. It’s like a mysterious force is preventing me from comprehending what is being said. Something inside my belly twists and I cry out. My back arches off the ground. The chanting and dancing grow more frantic. The women are screaming their words now, their hands in the air, swaying like drugged-out club whores. 

The old woman sprinkles red dust over my belly, forming a cross like X marks the spot with a circle around it. Then she pulls out a dagger from its sheath at her hip. She licks the gleaming blade from base to tip then whispers something to it. Again with the rhyming words. It’s as if she’s singing. A faint shimmer enhances the curlicue carvings on the steel.

I left Lunar Manor broken, seeking comfort in the hands of Laurel “the Dragon” Hardy, the editor-in-chief of the Daily Gossip. Okay, I may have used him to ease the pain He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named caused by his confession of loving someone else. On New Year’s Eve! Granted, he was drunk off his ass, but still! I stay with Larry mainly because the dreams are getting worse. Worse enough to wake me in the middle of the night needing the touch of another to save me from losing my mind.

Unfortunately, the handsome bassist of the uber successful indie rock band, Vicious, is never far from my mind. I thought I was rid of him once and for all only to have him show up at my hotel in London. Luka Visraya’s power over me is intense. No matter how far I run, I always end up circling back to him.

If you think my story is just some romance about two lovers getting back together, think again. Little did I know that returning to Luka meant I’d be plunging myself into a world more familiar than I ever thought possible. Trust me when I say I didn’t believe it either when the truth finally came out.

Indigo Summers is my alter ego on Wattpad. 
This is where the darker stories go.
