For my readers who don't know, today is my birthday! In light of it, I am going to post the excerpt I wrote a few days ago from Gemini the Heir! Please note that it is unedited:
My mouth soured and I leaned over the bed and allowed my stomach to regurgitate. A warm sweet taste filled my mouth. I looked down and saw red. The taste of blood lingered on my tongue. The final stage in the virus. I spit out the remaining blood, and I heard frantic voices around me. They knew it too. My stomach ached as well as the rest of my body. I kept my eyes closed as the lightness in the room would cause my head to pound even more. It was worse now than it was earlier. Every throb felt heavy and loud. The pain was building up, and I was sure that my skull could not hold the pressure.
My body became weak and it was a struggle to fight the sleep. My eyes drifted and I took in the darkness, afraid to meet what awaited me there.
