Sharing Saturday Five

Once again I am back with a Sharing Saturday which I started four weeks ago.  Today I will be sharing the first paragraph from a short story called Timelessness Itself.

It was a cold and dark night.  A storm rumbled, pouring out its tears for all to see.  A woman stumbled around, searching for her car.  She slipped and fell, landing hard, crying out in pain.  That’s when she saw it: a single, blood-red book shone against the dark pavement.  An instant later there was a scream that shattered the night.  Then silence–except for the incessant patter of drops.  The book slowly dissolved.
