THE CHOSEN Part Five: THE TWILIGHT OF THE GODS AND THE MORNING AFTER Chapter 26

The Darkness responded with the voice of a thousand infants screaming in pain. “You dare to provoke Me?” Brian’s voice grew a little louder. “I won’t do it.” The Darkness hissed. Brian could feel its anger pressing on him. He tensed. “I won’t ever do it,” he said. “I will not roll over for you.…

Ghosts of Milledgeville
