THE KING OF NIGHTMARE Chapter Two Jason gazed at the water and wished the waves would tell him where to go


Chapter Two 

Jason gazed at the water and wished the waves would tell him where to go. He'd like to go home, but he didn't have one. Any home he'd ever had, he'd left. He'd grown up in the sleepy Appalachian Mountains, but he'd shaken their old magic clutches and had moved away to all points westward, northward, and any-ward that got him some place new to see. It'd been great until Judith's Hell fractured and Jason's heart got crushed by a skinny girl with a glass soul. Jason hadn't seen his heart or the girl since, and he drew designs in the tan sand with one fingertip, thinking of how cool it'd be for his heart to show up among the seashells and the debris. It'd be shriveled and wasted in a bottle with a wax-sealed cap, and the note would read: "Had it, but couldn't make it work. Return to sender, postage paid upon delivery." As Lord only knew, Judith didn't give away anything for free.
