Betrayed – Part 6

The continuing story… Part 5 can be found here.

Scarlett awoke the next morning, feeling light-headed and nauseous.  After attempting to sit up, a searing pain pierced her right temple and then something warm began to trickle down the side of her face.  After feeling around, she noticed a fairly sizeable gash just above her right eyebrow.  The sight of blood always left her unsteady and this time was no exception.  Succumbing to the overwhelming dizziness, she laid back down on the cool mossy floor; trying to remember where she was and how she had gotten there.  As she looked around, everything seemed blurry and the sounds of the forest echoed unnaturally.  A passing cloud made room for an unexpected ray of light and Scarlett caught a glimpse of something shiny.  She reached up with bloodied hands and found an oval shaped locket resting against her chest.  The gold hinged covering was now partially broken off and inside she could see the image of a very handsome young man.  She began to wonder who he was, when suddenly another sharp pain shot through her head.  Once the throbbing began to subside, she looked at the locket once more.  She couldn’t take her eyes off the man in the photograph.  There was something eerily familiar about him and yet she couldn’t seem to remember him at all.

To be continued…

  1. Michelle, you can’t do this to me (speaking for myself here). I waited a whole week to see what will happen when she wakes up in the bush. I was afraid she would wake up in the middle of a camp of islanders that walk around naked or something (haha) but this is too little. And I have to wait another week?
    Ms Cook please, no ma’am. Be nicer!

  3. If you have something better I’ll wait. I thought something looked screwy about Gary Grant. Thanks for solving that for me!

  5. Okay, M. Is it enough that I like the story? Not for me. I want it; I want it all. I’m not good at waiting. 😀
