TITLE: THE MIND'S I
GENRE: YA Contemporary Fantasy
The young man floated, leaving his body far beneath him. Mind travel. It no longer frightened him to have mind and body separated. Now, he only felt exhilaration as his essence sped across physical boundaries rendered meaningless by his gift.
Distance was a concept that had no meaning in this realm of the mind. He could be anywhere - he was tempted to say, 'in the blink of an eye' - but his eyes were left behind. Strange, because he could see, he could feel. He experienced everything just as if his body remained with him.
He went anywhere he pleased. All he had to do was think of it and he was there. He had seen many wonders - Egyptian pyramids, African plains and, his favorite, the New York City skyline. All was possible. There was no up or down. There simply was a pure state of being where every experience flowed over and through him.
The young man had been everywhere using mind travel; been everywhere even though his physical body had never been more than a few hundred miles from the town of his birth.
But he had begun to experience a feeling of dread.
Mind travel was what he used to seek out new experiences. But the feeling was unmistakable.
Something was now seeking him.
