The Start Previous Part “It’s you!” exclaimed Tamaya. Keegan picked himself up off the sidewalk. “Uh… What’s me?” “You were in the accident, weren’t you?” “Um, why would you say that?” stammered Keegan, clearly taken aback. “You are way to warm for a normal person,” Tamaya blurted in response, briefly touching his still warm shoulder […]

Dust: Part 32

The Start Previous Part Thursday and Friday had passed without incident, and come Saturday morning Tamaya began preparing to leave.
