Chapter Six – Confrontation

Soo stood frozen in position, acutely aware of the gun pointed at his back. He started to turn before the click of the gun being loaded made him stop. He was beginning to feel distinctly disadvantaged.

Chapter Five – Vanity

By the time Soo-min had re-run the course of events at Vanity through her mind for the umpteenth time, she found herself caught in a fury so intense that she was forced to take deep breaths to prevent herself from hurling something at the walls.

Chapter Four – Extraction

Kim Hyun-soo’s hand froze in his inner jacket pocket where he concealed the syringe he’d picked up off the ground as the young woman recovered from her attack. He withdrew his fingers and straightened his spine as he regarded her with interest. Since he had only arrived in Seoul two days ago, the first time he set foot in the city in five years, the girl had to be someone from his past.  Her hair was tangled around her cheeks and half-covered her face, making it difficult for him to make out her features, although he could see the promise of delicate beauty in the curve of her jaw, but as she lifted a trembling hand to pull her hair behind her ear – he subconsciously noted the myriad of cuts decorating it – his eyes widened in recognition.

Chapter 2 – Fever Dream

Dreams in the dusk,

Only dreams closing the day

And with the day’s close going back

To the gray things, the dark things,

Of lost days when the day’s loss

Wrote in tears the heart’s loss.

 

Tears and loss and broken dreams

May find your heart at dusk.

Carl Sandburg, Dreams in the Dusk
