Road Trip…Ad Nauseum
K.R. Morrison

The road stretched out before me, the night studded with stars. Occasionally some would float down around my car. The air smelled of bacon, which only added to the strangeness.
For, not three minutes ago, I had been one of the many drivers strangled in four-lane commuter congestion. How I had gotten here, I had no idea.
The stars floated around me—or was it snow? In the desert? Not unheard of, but odd.
Suddenly my world shook, and I hung on for dear life until the tremors passed. The stars/snow were now thick around me—and just as quickly, they were back in the night sky.
I started my car and headed toward the horizon, mystified and not just a little panicked. I was either dreaming, or I had been transported to another place in the world by some mystic hand.
Considering how my life had been going, a ramble through the desert at night seemed a better option. But where to find shelter? And dinner?
Suddenly the night was pierced by a high, keening cry.
Then, to my terror, a huge eye appeared ahead of me. I slammed on the brakes, but they were totally ineffective. I screamed as I plummeted toward the iris.
My car ran into something invisible, but very solid.
I was unhurt—and to my surprise, right back at the section of road where I’d originally found myself.
The high-pitched screaming came again—but this time I hear words. And I knew, somehow, that I would never be going home again.
The little girl laughed as she prepared to shake the snow globe again.
“Mommy! You should see! I have a car in my world now!” She frowned a little. “But the guy in the car scares me. How do I get rid of him?”

Be Not Afraid (Pride’s Downfall Vol 1)

Lydia’s faith in God is strong – at least on paper. But what happens when that faith is tested? Turned into a vampire by the worst – Vlad Drakul – she feels that God has abandoned her. But the opposite is true. God rescues her from a fate worse than death, and brings her into the plan He has for global redemption. With the help He sends, she feels like nothing can stop her. But when Vlad torments her again, and then her family, the temptation to run and hide is almost too strong to resist. Her answer to God’s call is the deciding factor in the battle that pits the angelic powers of God against the demonic powers of Hell.
