The Van Helsing Impetus – Excerpt No. 339

As the stars broke through the night’s tapestry, Clara unfurled her wings. She turned toward the bright glow of the city and with a few powerful flaps was airborne. There was something about breaking free from the Earth’s grasp that never failed to give her a rush. It’s better than hugging the road in a car while taking a high-speed turn.

She flew just over the treeline to avoid being spotted. By focusing on the city’s distant glow, Clara estimated it was about an hour away by car. I’m lucky I woke up in such a remote location

There were few signs of habitation near her impact point, other than an occasional porch light, or the dimly lit interior of a house. Even the roads here were narrow, ever divided by a solid yellow line. Wellmaybe not that lucky.
