Excerpts from 'Behold the Darkness'6. 'The Lady of the Fog'

I caressed her and tried to touch my lips to hers only to have her look away and gently turn from me. Slowly she walked away from me, but before she was swallowed by the fog she gave me one last look. A look that haunted me the rest of my days....'
