Allison Brody  ("Together in Darkness")

She dressed in a burgundy suit she's designed and made herself.  She wore enough jewelry to still look professional, slipped into black three-inch heels and headed for the car. As she stepped out the front door she tripped on the white florist box that lay on the porch.  Allison didn't want to touch the box. Leaving it on the porch was not an option either, so she went back inside and grabbed a towel.

The second she touched it, a small pulse started at the base of her skull. The box acted as a conduit linking them. She dropped it in the back seat and slammed the door. Climbing into the driver's side, Allison headed for GTT. The more miles that passed the harder it was to concentrate on the simple action of driving to a place she'd been a million times. Her eyesight blurred so she pulled into a small park area.

Blindly fumbling, she found Detective Lancaster's card.

"Gloucester Police Department."

"I need to speak with Detective Lancaster," Allison said as she got out of the car.

"I'll try his line."

The phone rang twice. "Lancaster."

"Detective, it's Allison Brody, I need-" She stopped speaking. The detective said something but she couldn't hear because of the buzzing in her head. Allison fell to her knees, dizzy. The cell phone slipped through her fingers.

The vision began at a quaint little house with a paste-colored bedroom, paisley wallpaper and a white comforter that had been thrown to the floor. Gloved hands circled a young woman's neck.

Allison grabbed her head and closed her eyes to make the vision go away.

The young woman grabbed at the killer's arms and scratched at his face. His grip tightened and closed her airway. The woman slumped on the bed, her head lolling to one side.

The images moved foward.

Blood seeped into the colorful bed sheets and pieces of words written in the victim's blood crawled down the wall to a coagulated stop. Three to get ready.

Allison wilted to the ground unconscious.
