Continuing the story chain...

The lovely Deana's blogfest continues this week with a story chain. I'm the second link in the chain, so to read the first, head over here.

Dio pushed herself to her feet. At sixteen, she was old enough to have a driver's license. Surely she was old enough to change her name? It was worth looking into, anyway. She strode into the house, determined to discover the laws about changing names right away. Her need for a new identity seethed in an ache inside her. Who could she become? What name could she choose? Alice? Mary? Too dull. Ernestine? Too old-fashioned. Skye? Larronda? She shook her head. Jumping the gun a little, aren't we? As she turned on the computer, she ignored the insistent whisper of her subconscious. She sat down, terrified when the hushed voice grew to a high pitched whine that ricocheted off the walls of her skull.

Done? Now pop over here to read the next part!

  7. Oh my...this started out simple enough, but fantastic cliffhanger - and loved some of the names she thought about changing to.

    Dying now to know how this got from here to where I picked things up ^_^
