Loopback

I dabble a little in a lot of things — writing, webcomics, gaming, photography, web design, music, and more. I write code full-time and words in the gaps in between.


And three heartbeats later she was back.

"Impossible," I breathed, my voice barely audible. This shouldn't be happening. She was so weak. She shouldn't have been able to resist my attempts to banish her. And yet...

She was here. Again. In defiance, it seemed. I placed my hands over her, scanning her again, delving deeper in spite of myself. Daylight was so very close, and time was running out. But if I didn't solve this puzzle...

I nearly missed it. A faint resonance in her Sixth Chakra, the one I had just pierced.

"Impossible!" I said again, and again her pupils dilated, though apparently not in anticipation. Was that defiance I saw in her eyes? I wouldn't have thought her to have the strength for such emotion. Her energy-body link was so weak as to be tenuous at best, but here she was defying all my attempts to release her, to send her away. I couldn't understand it.

Harold whined again, and I looked at him. He looked concerned, if that was possible.

"I know," I said. "I'm worried, too."

A minor correction. The Third-eye is the 6th chakra =)
