Chapter 5 of my new novella Bone Rush is up! (After the Storm is releasing the chapters on a monthly basis.)
The first few paragraphs are below.
When light returned, it was mercifully dim: just a few pinpricks of red and blue, some of which were blinking.
Mika opened her eyes the rest of the way, but there was little else to see. No stars, no bones — just vague shapes, any of which could be solid or shadow. Where was she? And how was she alive?
Her arm felt … heavy. But how could it when she'd lost the lower half? Was that how phantom pain manifested? She couldn’t move the stub, though. Same with her hip and head. Same with the rest of her.
All because Desmond had betrayed them.
