Beyond the White Wall of Dread (Part 2)

At once, a transmutation of focus took custody of my blurred vision. I found myself vis-à-vis another mysterious entity. She was sitting casually, legs crossed, gaze transfixed on me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The funereal fears that possessed my chest cavity were gone, but I still felt an apprehensive grip on the rest of my body.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Do not be afraid Lee, I am your guardian angel. I've come to give you strength."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The message was communicated telepathically, without a linear structure, but with an undulating force and energy that reverberated through my lifeblood, with crystalline clarity.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her words were reassuring and warm, unlike the words from my previous encounter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She led me to a bed of bougainvilleas, where I could rest my depleted spirit. I closed my bloated, unblinking eyes, and I could feel the grotesque weight loosening its clutch around my neck as She tucked me in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The shallow breaths dissolved and were replaced by the vitality and sustenance of divine symbiosis.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was asleep, finally.
