Excerpt from the ebook:
It was an amazing feeling to run through the naked forest free of scratches from errant tree branches; to be invincible. I felt free. Glancing down, I thought how strange to be wearing a flowy, pink and white ruffled dress with a high collar. The feeling of running carefree vanished. Without warning my joyful mood transformed into one of desperation. The sound of wild dogs snapping at my heels prompted me to run for my life. There was no one here to save me. My heart raced as my legs grew sore while struggling to breathe. I was desperate to survive. So desperate, in fact, I knowingly jumped off the edge of a cliff. Time slowed in free fall: my heart jumped into my throat, my stomach flip-flopped and while kicking all the way down, I hoped the effort would break my fall. I landed on a boy lying still; stiff as a corpse in a coffin. My fall did not affect him in any way. I immediately rolled off, horrified by what I thought was true. My eyes grew so wide, expecting them to pop. Recoiling, I noticed he was dressed in a black suit with a single red rose placed carefully in folded hands upon his chest. Rising slowly, I nervously looked around. There, in the tall grass stood a little girl with long blond hair tied back by a blue ribbon. She stared intently at me.
