Before I can read further, a giggle sounds right behind me. I turn around to see what it is but my flashlight goes out and I’m suddenly on the ground being pulled by something I cannot see. It feels like someone’s touching me but I’m not possessing their soul. Three things hit me all at once: the pounding of my heart, gasping for air, and nauseousness. What in the hell is happening?
“Orla?” It sounds like Dave’s not having an easy time reentering this place.
“Hurry up.” Molly’s impatient as ever, thank goodness.
Boomer’s barking as if an intruder has entered our home. I tremble. The strange snicker bounces off the walls echoing back to me as my back rubs against the floor. “Dave!”
He drops to the ground upon entry with Molly falling on top of him and Boomer not too far behind. They stumble to me while shining their flashlights trying to find the being in our hidden room to no avail. Then Dave’s holding me, actually holding me. With his arms around me I grab onto his broad shoulders. His solid chest against me makes me feel safe as he carries me out of the room.
“Are you okay?”
The presence I had felt before disappears as quickly as it came. My heartbeat slows down and my breathing returns to normal. There is complete comfort being in his arms. It’s as if he’s pumping warm support to me through my connection to his soul. How is this happening? But I begin to sense worry trickling in and much too soon he’s releasing me.
Boomer’s in my lap next, licking my face, and I can’t help but smile.
“We should have never let you go in there after what happened to us.” Molly lets out an exasperated breath.
“Why, what happened to you in there?”
“It was awful.” Dave runs his hand down his face.
“Yeah, something pulled us and tied our hands.” Molly’s pacing in our hallway.
“What was it?”
“I don’t know.” The way he looks at me is desperation personified.
