Like Blood In A Darkroom
by Christopher Marcus
Publisher: ShadeLight Publishing
Dec 31, 1997: Four friends from high school meet for one last time in an isolated holiday house to party all night before they go their separate ways. The only thing flowing more freely than the illegal drinks is nostalgic memories from four years together, and daring dreams of what comes next. But as the clock ticks toward 1998, only one thing is truly clear: That nothing is. Neither plans for the future, nor friendships you once thought would last forever.
A tale about all the dreams all young people have - and the fears just beneath.
