Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Don’t Fight It”! (MC FF)

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“Play With Me”, teased previously, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Don’t Fight It” (MC FF)!

Laura has something to show Dawn. Something wonderful. Something that will change her life forever. All she has to do is take a moment, take a look… and stop resisting. Here’s a taste:

“I dunno,” Dawn said warily. “Is it, like, made of quartz or something? Because I–ut.” Dawn felt the words dry up into an inarticulate grunt as the orb suddenly burst into a vibrant display of colors that practically dragged her eyeballs down into the swirling depths of the object. She gripped the edge of the desk as a sudden wave of vertigo washed over her, forcing her to lean heavily on the solid oak for support.

Dawn tried to ask Laura what the hell was going on, what she was looking at, what was happening to her all of a sudden and why her gaze seemed to be inexplicably magnetized to the mysterious orb in front of her, but all that escaped her lips was another mumbled yelp of confusion. “Guh?” Dawn blurted out, trying to control her body and her mouth and her eyes and failing at all three.

“Ssh, shh, it’s okay,” Laura cooed softly, coming up behind Dawn and gently petting her back. “It’s okay. Don’t try to fight it. It’s so much better when you stop resisting and let it inside your mind, Dawn. You wouldn’t be able to resist anyway, so why try?” Laura’s fingers smoothed back Dawn’s long black hair, stroking it as the orb continued its implacable pull on Dawn’s gaze. The colors flowed endlessly inward, creating an optical illusion of bottomless depth that seemed to swallow Dawn’s mind more and more as she stared deeper and deeper. It felt like it was absolutely impossible to look away. Within moments, Dawn stopped even trying.

Hope you enjoy it!
