“Cold” ― Jorge Méndez

The sheets were stained. Not from the wrestle of slick bodies in throes of heat, but imprints of a nightmare’s cold sweat. His.

Arnav Singh Raizada stood on the threshold of a thousand thoughts as he starred out at London’s soaked streets. A thousand agitated creatures screaming in perpetual disagreement inside his mind’s courtroom. Dismissal did not quiet them; attention turned them into surging bolts of electricity burning at the ruptured threads of sanity.

The end of the cigarette burned red as he inhaled, briefly separating his face from the dark. The calm arrangement of masculine features belied the sickly panic that had thrust him from dreamless sleep to the disturbed echo of crippling loss.

He’d tore from bed to balcony, body locking as he became an unwilling witness to a city etched in mourning. Against tempered glass, the skies roared in misery, her snarls of wrath released on raging gusts of wind. In between the furious howls he heard it. No louder than a lover’s soft whisper. Stay.

A/N: This is not a love story, but it is their love story. I promise not the gentle chords of happily ever after, but the violent heart song of what happens when souls mate.

  11. I believe the authors’ note says so much with so little words. To me it’s speaks to the intensity of their feelings, the intense feelings that I’m sure all your readers feel when they read their love story and the intense feelings you feel when making your words come to life. The authors’ note is just as important as the words of the story to me. It puts everything into perspective. So thank you for setting the bar so high and for delivering every time.

  15. Wonderful Prologue.
    Something else was in store for us in the show, but changed into something else in the last minute – I heard. We can only speculate as we can’t get our hands on the original script. Your take sounds better.
