Golden Chains - The Colorblind Trilogy #3 - Teaser


The smell of death stained the air, assaulting my nose and filling my lungs with its unwelcome aroma. With it – came the horrible feeling of sickness and the fear of the unknown.

The scenario of dead people surrounding me, and others struggling for their lives as they fought for their breaths wasn't new to me. I'd seen it before. The only difference this time was that I wasn't that scared little girl, anymore. No, I was a horrified fully grown up woman.

For the past few days, I knew that everything would be okay, at the end. It was the only thing that kept me going. I refused to let go. I refused to give the chance for anxiety to start stabbing at my heart, or hold my brain in its disgusting claws.

But, now … I didn't know how to keep that strength, anymore. I didn't know how to keep it together while feeling this agonizing pain in my body, or this unbearable hurt in my chest. It was much more than what I could tolerate.

Screaming my heart out seemed like a pretty good idea. Something in me believed that it would give me some sort of relief. But, I couldn't even do that. I didn't know if it would mean my rescue or if it would only bring attention to me. The kind of attention that I didn't want.

So, I held my screams in, but I couldn't hold my tears, anymore. They simply flew, just like the blood that was seeping out of my body. I had no control over either of them.
I wasn't mad at myself for crying, no. I was proud of the strength I'd shown since I was brought here. Mazen would be proud of me, as well.

Mazen … my heart snuck to my stomach at the thought of the last time I'd seen him. My mind played the image of him: his head was held high, and he stood tall, his features were colder than ice and the look in his eyes were harder than stone.

I remembered the tears I'd shed as I watched him spitting orders and yelling commands. I remembered the struggle I felt to keep breathing as I heard him threatening and promising the unthinkable.

I remembered calling him – and him never answering me.

I remembered exactly when my heart broke. And I reminded myself of when I had decided to never show weakness ever again.

But seeing everything that was happening now – I knew it was probably the end. There was no point in not showing weakness, nor there was a point in keeping it together.

I screamed.

With the top of my lungs.

My scream spoke of all of what I was feeling for the past days: the hurt, the pain, the fear, the worry, the shame … and the broken heart.

All it had given me was a split second of relief, but I knew very well that it could be heard beyond those doors. I knew it could be the cry of the prey which made the way to catch it easier for its attackers.

It couldn't be undone, and I didn't have it in me to regret it. I was ready to meet my fate.
