FANFIC * NESSIAN * PART FOURTEEN
Nessian Part Fourteen by L.J. LaFleur
“Nesta,” I choked as I struggled to open my eyelids—to stretch my battered wings. I sucked in a sharp breath, her screams echoing through the hallway.
I winced from the searing pain that enveloped my entire body. Sweat dripped down my furrowed brows, stinging my eyes—my body was drenched. I stood up too quickly, the room spun briefly before I had my balance under control.
The pads of my bare feet slammed into the cold floor as I rushed to the door. “Shit,” I muttered, collapsing to my knees. Wood and bones, snapping against one another.
Again, I rose too swiftly, lifting a calloused hand to the doorknob. Bile ascended in my esophagus. I was going to vomit from the unbearable throbs of agony. But she needs me, I can hear her.
Twisting the knob, I flung the door open. Of course, I was at the far end of the hallway. What once was a short walk looked like the entire length of Prythian.
First step, I nearly crumbled to me knees again.
