Chapter 18: Purple Fever

When Ylana turned around, her stomach did an impressive gymnastics routine inside her body.  The voice belonged to none other than the woman in the visions instigated by the purple pendant around her neck: the woman who was supposed to be dead and who held the severed head in the most recent nightmare.

Nara, who never saw any of the hallucinatory images personally, could only see the significance of this moment in Ylana’s face.  She rested her hand in the center of Ylana’s back, holding her steady when it seemed impossible for her to stand on her own.

The mysterious woman smiled when she saw the pendant around Ylana’s neck and proclaimed, “So now you’re the latest victim of my ex-husband’s purple fever.”
