Dream of Horror… excerpt from “MACTUS” the 2nd book of “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido
As Charmeine appeared in Tabbruis’ dream, she was being carried away in darkness.
He saw her being tortured on the ‘Altar of Judgment’ lying helpless and defenseless.
Tabbruis was being held by the Elder Temple Guards doing everything he could to get to her.
He screamed in horror as the Elder walked over to her with his fangs exposed and leaned down . . .
Tabbruis tossed his head back and forth, roused himself out of sleep and ran to the bathroom to check on Charmeine, but she was gone. He looked around and saw her clothes were on the bathroom floor with a used bath towel. The shoes she wore were gone. His throat tightened, and he became very alarmed. Quickly, he ran out the bedroom and down the hallway.
He opened the door to their castle wing and stood on the front entry staircase landing. He reached out with his senses and felt her heart beating which made him instantly relieved.
Very soft music was coming from the Grand Hall downstairs. As he started down the steps, Tabbruis heard Dmitri whisper, “Charmeine is in the Grand Hall playing the piano.” He saw Dmitri standing by the door to his wing of the castle.
He nodded and began to head down the stairs.
Dmitri whispered, “Charmeine will surrender, Brother. I am sorry. She will not fight.”
Tabbruis’ heart erupted in pain! He felt like a two ton truck had hit him. “Charmeine is strong. We will be a family as God intended us to be. She will fight for our family.”
“Ah yes, your family is set as God planned it to be on the dreadful day of the battle in Heaven. However, Charmeine is a Light-Bearer; she is a light of God. This woman is like the Son. She will sacrifice herself for her family. Tabbruis, my brother, look into your heart. Do you believe she will let you suffer for her? Do you believe she will let anyone suffer for her? The love in her heart is too strong.”
Tabbruis hung his head and replied with despair, “Dear God, how could you do this to my family again? I just found Charmeine, and you want to take her away from me and our son?”
He could hear music from the Grand Hall, and it was so beautiful.
Thoughts of Charmeine’s tortured face from his nightmare raced in his memory, and he began to tear hiding it from Dmitri. No way could he survive losing her all over again.
Sitting on the stair with his head in his hands, he whispered, “I have seen it Dmitri. I know what you say is true. I cannot bear to go on without her. I would rather die with her than to be without her. I have waited eight thousand years for Charmeine and God be damned if she will be taken away from me again.”
I always loved this song
always . . .
It shows the strength that a pure love has.
And the lyrics and voice are haunting!
