Excerpt
Back upstairs, the steamy bathroom was empty and he could hear Tor moving around in their bedroom along the hall. Deciding to have one last check on the water temperature, Gabe went into the bathroom and froze. Steam rose up from the taps, initially a good sign, the scalding liquid emerging from the faucet, water evaporating, billowing into its own cloud system below the ceiling, dropping down to make the glass of the corner shower cubicle opaque, and drifting across the room to the far side, coating the mirror as the steam cooled, sank and disappeared. It was like a geography project on the formation of weather systems. The cloud did little to obscure Gabe’s view of the bath, however, which was why he was so startled. The water, now up to about three-quarters full, was deep red. Not red-coloured water, not rusty water, not see-through as if she’d used a bath-bomb, but opaque – like wine.

Or blood.

The water was more viscous than it should have been, sticking to the porcelain, sliding down like people trying to climb a slippery wall, clinging to the surface until Sir Isaac Newton intervened. Gabe stared at the ripples and waves on the crimson surface, wondering if this was the extent of the weirdness or if something else might happen. As if in response, as he watched, something began to happen on the surface, a dome slowly forming in the middle of the water – or whatever it was – rising upwards like a red sheet draped over a child’s head at Halloween, the blood running off and splashing back down into the bath, splattering the walls. It was definitely blood, it couldn’t be anything else. And it was definitely a head that was rising out of it as the liquid dripped away from two eyes, blinking in the light and staring right at him with anger and malevolence. Dark hair was matted to her head as she rose, shoulders and breasts lifting out of the water, face twisted into a sneer. Blood ran from her face and head, running over her shoulders in a hundred tiny rivulets, down her arms and to the tips of her small breasts, dripping off her nipples.

‘Gabe?’ Tor called from the bedroom.

‘Two minutes,’ he answered in the direction of the door, hoping he didn’t sound as shaken as he felt, struggling to stop himself screaming aloud and running from the room. Turning back to the bath, the water was clear and steam slowly rose up from the surface, filling the room like a sauna. The noise of water pouring in once again dominated the room. Looking back to the door then to the bath again, seeing nothing of the apparition or hallucination of before, he made a decision. He shut off the tap and reached in to grab the chain, pulling the plug, allowing the water to start to gurgle and spin out down the plughole.

 

Author Bio
Mark Brownless lives and works in Carmarthen, West Wales, UK. He has been putting ideas on paper for some years now but only when the idea for THE HAND OF AN ANGEL came to him in the autumn of 2015 did he know he might be able to write a book. Mark likes to write about ordinary people being placed in extraordinary circumstances, is fascinated by unexplained phenomena, and enjoys merging thriller, science fiction and horror.

Mark’s new novel, The Shadow Man is a terrifying horror thriller imagining what would happen if you found out the memories of your childhood were untrue, and that something sinister was lurking behind the facade of your life. Could you face what had happened back then? Could you face The Shadow Man.

Mark is also fascinated by myths and legends such as those of Robin Hood and King Arthur. This has culminated in the release of his short story series, Locksley, a Robin Hood story.
