""The last thing I remember is the girls playing with my hair. It is curled on my forehead and they stroke it gently while I fall asleep. I wake up suddenly, my body wracked with hot piercing pain. I'm in a car that's hurtling through the night, and all around me is darkness. I'm lying across someone's knees. The pain intensifies and shoots hot, raking talons down my body as I hear hideous screaming. It takes a moment before I realize I'm the one screaming, then I drop back into the deep depths of blackness.""
