“Glade” – an excerpt

Despite my better judgment, I have decided to post a brief excerpt from Glade. The book is to be divided into three parts. This fragment will appear within in part one.

I won’t explain who, where, and why. It is, as I say, just a snippet that I enjoyed and thought I’d share. It’s sung to the tune of the nursery rhyme, “Pop! Goes the Weasel”.

Incidentally, I was listening to the “Showtime, Storytime” live album by Nightwish as I wrote the 2000 or so words that included the fragment above (with the tracks “My Sin”, “Ever Dream”, “I Want My Tears Back”, “Nemo”, “Last of the Wilds”, and “Amaranth” featuring prominently in replays).

It’s not always the lyrics, but more often the tune that serves as my muse. The little people in my head busily shift the scenery back and forth upon stage as the music changes and I see the kaleidoscope of images flash in my mind…
