The Mushroom Cure
Chapter 1 - A portal between worlds. Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. As Chad and Theo step through the entrance of the cave the floor vanishes, a rainbow light surrounds them and they feel themselves instantly falling. They are able to grasp hands at the last second and use all of their effort to focus their thoughts on the cave near their home back on Earth. For several minutes they feel as though they have been thrown into a stormy ocean with the current and waves pulling them in every direction. Finally, the turbulence lessens and their feet stand on solid ground again. The rainbow light disappears and they are surrounded by blackness. They realize that they must be deep in another cave as there is no light and they can hear a trickle of water somewhere in the darkness in front of them.
A Conspiracy for Good
Read the prologue to this story on Vocal - Ghost Train Chapter 1 - A portal between worlds. Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. As the train reaches the opening gateway of light Miah wants to laugh or cry rather than scream; but the mixed emotions result in silence. The light around her becomes blinding and the energetic gateway twists and turns merging two trains, past and present, into one. Miah feels as if her whole body is on fire but there is no pain. She won't let fear take hold, she lets everything flow...thoughts, emotions, energy.
I was barely holding on to the edge of sanity , trying to do everything work and family . I didn’t want to give up anything; I wanted to do it all , but slowly I was losing a battle inside my heart . I finally went to far and began to lose control,when somehow in the darkness I discovered my buried soul.

Feeling panic begin to overwhelm her, she looks around, confused about her surroundings. She is laying across two seats and can see the scenery flashing by outside of a train car window. Across from her there is an elderly couple glancing at her with confused looks on each of their faces.
