An Excerpt of Heart of Deception

 Holly Everten was lying lifeless on the cool cement that had befriended her for an indefinite amount of time. Blood pooled around her once deep, blond locks that were now a crusty russet hue. Her long elegant fingers she once lavished attention to had several nails ripped off them. Her slender legs had been methodically broken in several places from a wicket. The telltale rivets were scarring a faded tan she had once proudly displayed with flirty shorts on occasion. She could not see well from one of her eyes because it had been swollen shut, yet she knew that her petite feet were gone. They were now replaced by crude scars and bandaging. It hurt to move her head, now glued to the cement floor by the blood. Nevertheless, she still yearned for water and food. She began to lose consciousness again, yielding hope she could dispose of this anguish for the last time. Fragmented thoughts of yesteryear pierced her mind like dancing hallucinations giddy with drunken humor. Each time these streaming thoughts were more fantastic and lengthy than the last, making her ponder their validity and realism.
