NOVELLA: Éminence Grise

Yep, another story. A bit too long for a regular short story, so I guess I'll have to call it a novella. (But really, I see it as more of a 22-page novel.)

When Pamela was a child, she was taken from her parents by Doralis, the telepathic ruler of the world, to be raised in an institute. Ten years later, Doralis falls into a coma after an assassination attempt, and Pamela is placed in a psychiatric clinic for deprogramming. The world seems to be free of Doralis' reign, but then a pandemic of nightmares starts.

Warning: some violence and other scary stuff.

As usual, drop me a line and I'll mail you the story. I'm happy for any kind of constructive criticism. I'd be especially happy for opinions about something pretty immoral Pamela does around the middle of the story (when you read it, you know what I'll mean), and whether I should cut that bit or not.

Potentially fun trivia about the creation of this story under the spoiler cut:

Into valleys, into waters,
Into jungles, into Hell,
Let us ride,
Let us ride home again with a story to tell!

Into darkness, into danger
Into storms that rip the night,
Don't give in, don't give up
But give thanks for the glorious fight!
