Chapter Twenty-Three

I went to the same alleyway as when I found the men who knew where Jess was. They were standing there, waiting.

 "Here you go," I said before throwing the wad of cash at them. The front man caught it, but then the others started walking towards me.

 "Did you really think that we'd tell you where Jessica is? The Shadow should have killed you! Don't worry, we'll do her job for her." He explained. I closed my eyes, and when I opened them, they burned. And then every man that was surrounding me turned to ice. Ice? I didn't have much time to think about that, because the men were melting. I ran back to my house. I hated The Shadow!

 I soon fell asleep. I dreamt of a wedding.

 A beautiful bride stood in front of me... Her face was shrouded by a veil. I smiled at her without thinking. The man next to us told us we were married, and we kissed. It was a long kiss. She smelt so nice!

 Then it changed. She was a demon, with ridged stony skin that looked like green rock. her teeth were red and she had black horns. I yelped and ran.

 That's when I woke up.

The End
