Obsidian Mirror, pt 6

Epilogue, one week after Zee's incarceration:

Obsidian Mirror pt. 5

I'm back in the prison. I'm in a straight jacket and I'm chained to the wall. There are no windows.

Obsidian Mirror, pt. 4

I walk with the couple re-clothed in extra garments they had with them. They were old hippies that were on a long camping trip out in their cabin. They offered to feed and clothe me for a few nights, or until I can figure out what happened to me lat night.

Obsidian Mirror, pt. 3

Where the hell am I?

The Obsidian Mirror, pt. 2

"What's going on...?" I mumble to myself, my knees and hands shaking.
