RYKER’S JOURNEY is the title of a 2,000 word short story I am submitting for my writers group’s Anthology. Here’s a sneak peek. What do you think?
My journey into reality began with a fever. I’d never been so ill before. Beads of sweat formed on my brow and ran down all sides of my neck. My stomach rolled without relent. It was odd for an Exalted, like me, to be ill, so I was immediately sent from training to the infirmary. The medical citizens diagnosed me with food poisoning and sent me back to my dorm room to wait it out. That was a mistake on their part.
