Book Two Teaser: The Paths we Walk Alone Together

Chapter One: A Journey Begins

Sound washed over her as if from deep underwater, distant and muffled. Her mind swam through thick clinging darkness, conscious thought was impossible as the fragmented pieces of her mind slowly melded back together, Raven finally regained her consciousness… and immediately regretted it, the first thing to register was a deep aching pain across her entire body. She groaned and curled into herself a little bit, then memory returned to her, the wurm, the hole, Jinx.

"Jinx?" Raven said opening her eyes now.

The thief was sprawled on the ground next to her, Raven rolled onto her hands and knees trying to push herself up. She stopped as a wave of nausea rolled over her.

The world slowly came into focus and the first thing Jinx registered was Raven losing her lunch. She groaned and rubbed her face with her hands.

"You ok sweets?" She asked hands still covering her face.

"Just… eugh… just a minute."

Jinx opened her eyes but didn't move any further just staring up into the sky waiting for the pain and nausea to subside.

"Raven?" … "What is the nearest binary system to Earth?"


"A binary system you know with two suns, what's the closest one to Earth?"

"I'm not certain but, I know it's very far away."


Raven looked over to the thief and then followed her gaze up to the sky where two suns burned brightly in the sky.


"What the hell happened?"

"Just give me a minute; my stomach is still trying to claw its way out of me."

Jinx pulled herself to her feet moving over and crouching down next to Raven who was still intently focused on a small depression in the ground, just breathing steadily.

Jinx surveyed their surroundings. They appeared to be in a small clearing in the middle of a forest of trees similar to birches and pines, overhead the sky was clear and blue with its twin disks of light, the air was still and cool, the sounds of insects and animals filled the air. It was almost like home, but the trees weren't quite birches or pines or any other tree that existed on Earth, the clear blue sky was crowded with one sun too many, and the sounds of insects weren't the sounds of any insect Jinx had ever heard.

"Where the hell are we?" Jinx mumbled to herself.
