Hi Everyone! Hope you’re doing well!
Here’s a story I worked on for submission a few months back. I hope it’s a short and dirty treat while you wait for more news on When Dying Is Done (Shivers and Sins Volume 3). Please be aware that this is a dark erotic short with thriller and non-consent elements.

I gulped and turned off the ignition. Clenching my jaw, I swung open the door and stepped into the sweltering night. Cicadas chirped duets with bullfrogs. The Spanish moss barely swayed on their branches, and humidity licked my skin like an insistent tongue.
