This story is dedicated to Avenged Sevenfold, my favorite band of all time, and their late drummer Jimmy Sullivan. I also dedicate my writing to my family for encouraging me to follow my dreams.

It’s been twenty four years since the tragic and mysterious loss of the parents of Emily, 26, and Quinn, 32. Emily’s night terrors are coming back, reliving the day of which she saw them die.

When she finds out that Jimmy, a mysterious, dynamic guy, who is also a drummer of a hard-rock / metal band whom she has fancied for what feels like forever, will be back from being gone for a year. With no explanation to anyone where he went, he spontaneously shows up at a party Quinn will be attending, and she suddenly feels that a void has been filled. Sparks begin to fly between them, but a horror and supernatural occurrence has been revealed with Jimmy, causing Emily’s world to change forever.
