AN ILL WIND
BY DEVORAH FOX

Excerpt

His lips trembled. “Katy,” he breathed.

“Are they for Katy?” I asked. “You keep asking for Katy but no one knows who she is. I’ll try to find her but sir, you must tell me more.”

He seemed to suck in more oxygen. In a choked voice he murmured “Gone.” He held out his arm, fist clenched, and unwrapped his fingers. On his palm lay an item not much thicker than a pen, and not much longer.

“Yours now,” Mr. Xerxes said, his voice more gasp than whisper. “Enlil called you.”

Enlil? Who was Enlil?

“He had that with him when he was admitted,” the nurse said. “We couldn’t pry it away. It seemed important to him so we gave up trying.”

I remembered how the man’s fist was clenched when I first found him.

“We wanted to put it in Personal Property for safekeeping but he’s refused to part with it. Until now. You’re a good friend. He’s lucky to have you.” Nurse Netzel patted me on the shoulder and hurried off.

About Author Devorah Fox…

“What if?” Those two words all too easily send Devorah Fox spinning into flights of fancy. Best-selling author of award-winning books including The Bewildering Adventures of King Bewilliam literary historical fantasy series and several thrillers, she also penned Fantasy/Science Fiction and Mystery Mini Short Reads and contributed short stories to popular fantasy anthologies. Born in Brooklyn, New York, she now lives on the Texas Gulf Coast with rescued tabby cats … and a dragon named Inky.
