In Red Right Hand, Charlie Tristan Moore was thrust into a nightmarish world of lurking Lovecraftian horrors when The Man In Black, a diabolical Elder God, chose her as his unwilling Acolyte. Discovering her own power, Charlie ultimately defied The Man In Black, but at a cost.
Now armed with a magic coat made from the skin of a flayed angel, Charlie is out to destroy The Man In Black and save her boyfriend Daniel--and she doesn't care how many bloodthirsty gods and monsters get in her way...
My headspace goes white as my heart starts to hammer in my chest. All I can smell is the bouncer’s body spray. Tyler’s body spray. It fills my nose and I can’t breathe.
My brain feels like it’s jittering in my skull in time with the sudden, rabbit-fast beat of my heart and that thought I trapped a moment ago roars out of the vault, trying to claw-dig its way through my cerebral cortex, to burrow deep and complete.
I open and close my hands, flexing my fingers.
I can move.
I swing my arms, shaking them. From a distance I hear the sizzle of magick at the end of my right one.
I survived. This is not then. I am fine. Fine. Fine.
I feel the coat rustling around me. I am standing.
Tyler’s dead. They’re all dead. All the bastards who hurt me are d-e-a-d dead.
The thought splits the panic wide open, pulling me back to myself. I come back with a gulp of oxygen in my lungs, dragging it in and pushing out the tinny taste of built-up carbon dioxide. My skin is clammy, damp, and it feels twitchy under my clothes, but I can see and, most important, I can think in a straight line again.
The bouncer hasn’t moved.
Only a second, maybe three at the most, has gone by. Even if it felt like an eternity of panic, it was a blink of an eye. No time at all. Thankfully it’s been so quick no one has come in behind me. I’m two steps back from the bouncer, but I can still smell him. Sax body spray. Boy’s Nite Out scent. The choice of douchebags everywhere.
That’s not true. I’m projecting. I can’t help it.
I wish they would retire that damn scent. It’s been around over ten years now. Trust me, I know.
The coat rustles around me, sensing my tension. I smooth my hands down it, trying to calm it, and realize that rustling is its way of caressing me, trying to calm me down.
I’ve got this, I think to it.
