and our neighbor, does not yet understand them as he ought.”

source of inspiration for those who don't understand it.”

YOU ONL
Y DIE TWICE

 

A
Thriller

 

By
Christopher Smith

 
 

CHAPTER
ONE

 
 

At
first, all she was aware of was a cold
wetness against her cheek and explosions of
light along the periphery of her vision.
 
She could hear someone talking to her―a man―but she couldn’t
understand what he was saying.
 

She felt
her body being jolted.
 
Kicked.
 
Punched.

Her head
hurt.
 

There
was blood in her mouth.
 
And
something else.
 
Something thick and
round, which made it difficult for her to breathe.

Her left
leg began to twitch.

The
flashes of light continued until the pain in her head became too much for her
to bear.
 

Something
was shoved into her right hand.
 
She
felt her fingers being closed around it and then, somehow, the object was
attached to her hand.
