As Darkness is Falling


PREFACE


It was almost time.

I could feel the shadows receding toward where I stood under the clock. I paused momentarily to hear the thoughts of people around me.

My mind must have been playing tricks on me, because I swear I saw a picture of Bella going through a fountain. Bella…

I closed my mind off to the people and only thought of Bella. Behind my eyelids I saw her face, her smile, her hair…

I could hear her voice.

I could almost feel her warmth.

The clock tolled. It was time to meet my destiny.
