Where are we, I ask.
The woman looks into my eyes. She is perfect. Her face is beautiful, though her eyes are the eyes of an eagle. I wonder if I have become an eagle too.
Or a rabbit.
I know you, I say. I know you, don't I?
She nods and takes my hand.
Her hand is warm, her fingers close softly yet firmly around my hand. I had expected to feel talons, even though I could see her hands and slender fingers, but they felt just like normal hands.
Am I dead, I ask.
She does not answer.

    Wow. Now I REALLY want to know what happens next! I’m not sure if the story has morphed into the surreal but I’m looking forward to finding out! Great stuff Drew.

    It's amazing how a story takes hold and shoots off in unexpected directions. I hope it knows what it's doing, that's all.

    I'm not quite sure what's going on yet but it's a fascinating read all the same, Drew.

    The story's in charge guys! Don't shoot me, I'm just the middle-man :) Thanks Christopher, glad you're enjoying it.
