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:

The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.
