Covers of They All Died Smiling

The spectacular view of pink and golden rays of sunlight streaming through a hole in dark grey clouds lit her way like the Star of Bethlehem.

Alison cried, “Thank you, Jesus; I’m free!” as she leapt over the edge.

She hurtled toward the rocky ground. The whoosh of air tugged at her hair and eyelashes. She shouted and laughed her way down the nine-hundred-foot drop.

Her bones shattered before the echo of her triumphant shouts faded into memory. Like a sacrificial offering, her lifeblood dripped down the rocks and into the stream, tinting it crimson, diluting her essence.
