The urge...was irresistible.
I breathed sharply and let instinct take over, searing pain rippling down my spine and blood starting to trickle slowly and then in rivulets.
And then I was being ripped apart for a brief, excruciatingly slow heartbeat.
My body fell to the floor and Thing rushed towards it.
I was already floating above him in my spirit form, a pulsating deep blue.
Shapeless, best described as ribbons drifting in the wind.
Thing looked up and finally noticed me, just before I turned and drifted through the veil.
