The Pegasus Chronicle
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Short Stories'
Her best friend, Jake, who saw nothing more than a dusty old picture, assured her that moving had taken its toll on her and persuaded her to take a dinner break. Driving around in search of a restaurant, they stumbled upon an old-fashioned carnival. The smell of hotdogs, popcorn and cotton candy lured them into an amusement park that looked as if it were plucked from the pages of history with its sideshows and classic rides. But the antique carousel mesmerized Kat, particularly the carved, wooden Pegasus. The winged horse with its sapphire eyes replicated the mythical creature that had visited her dreams throughout childhood––inspired her newest novel, The Pegasus Chronicle. She insisted on riding the animal so Jake agreed. But when the carousel stopped, Katlyn had vanished. After searching every square inch of the grounds, Jake was bewildered and vowed to do whatever it took to find his friend.
What happened to Kat? Surely her disappearance had nothing to do with that merry-go-round. Dreams can't pierce the realm of reality, or can they? Perhaps her visions were premonitions of her destiny. In order to unravel the mysterious disappearance, Jake must take a journey of his own, discover Katlyn's mystic connection to the antique painting, and fulfill a promise hidden in the pages of history.
