Title: Voice of the Lion
Author: C.L. Scheel
 
Excerpt
The blow came so quickly he had no time to defend himself. Blood ran from an open gash in his right temple, down his jaw and into the dark folds of his jacket collar. Without warning the plane banked dangerously to the left, the wings almost vertical as it knifed through the night sky.

Fighting the dizziness that threatened to overtake him, he fought the yoke and righted the plane, just avoiding the looming mass of blackened rock and rows of bristling trees.

"If you kill me, I won't be able to land," he shouted over the engine's roar.

The cold muzzle of the pistol jammed into his throat just above the larynx.

God...please, not there.

"Shut up and land the goddamned plane!"

He glanced at his assailant and fought the overwhelming urge to strike back. Grimly, he tried to wipe away the blood now threatening his vision. The dizziness assaulted him again, seeping through his entire body like an insidious drug.

The plane lurched and swooped low, skimming over the dark, ominous water. He tried to focus on the controls but found the effort nearly impossible. With the menacing darkness nearly overwhelming him, he struggled one last time to guide the plane to safety.

The gun's muzzle pressed deeply into his throat.

"Do it!"

The sea rushed up toward them, a gigantic, boiling maw of black water.

At least death would be quick...and there would be no pain.
