Out of Time - Part 5
Welcome to my next installment of #SnippetSunday. Please make sure you visit the Snippet Sunday Facebook group (here's the link) to read other amazing authors!
Out of Time follows a young woman searching for a lost family history. In the haunted town of Benton, she discovers that past and present memories overlap, and that ghosts aren't always what they seem. Last week, Kayla was thinking about Adeline, her great-great-great-great Aunt, wondering if she had made it to the town of Benton so many years before. I love this next part of the story and I hope you like it, too.
Her head hurt, a deep, dull pain. Her eyes opened but squinted to keep out the light. Blurry. She was off the bed, her feet shuffling across the floor. When had she put on socks? She stood in front of a dresser, her hands steadying her sway as a stab of pain shot through her temples. She hadn’t had a hangover like this since her college days. I don’t remember drinking last night.
Her eyes opened more, now better used to the daylight coming into the room. She leaned on the dresser, her hands resting on dark, solid wood. She must have been really tired the night before because she didn’t remember it being such a dark wood.

Great snippet I'm curious to find out what really happened to her.

I am intrigued! This sounds like she isn't actually drunk, but perhaps seeing something of a different time. Dream walking with sleep walking? Or should we call it memory walking? I have to say, you certainly caught my attention on this story. Great snippet!

Oh ... is that the ghost's POV ... interesting and intriguing!

That doesn't sound like a hang over, more like she has been drug. does she even know where she is?

Oh-ho. Something happened overnight and now she's in the past! Nicely done, Karysa. :)
