Lie to Her
by Mehrisa Mex
GENRE: psychological thriller
Despite years of treatment, twenty-one year old Lydia still
struggles with trauma from being attacked as a teenager. House-bound with
anxieties and haunted by ghostly visions, she soon comes to suspect her
psychiatrist husband, Myles, of sabotaging her recovery.
Her pursuit of the truth uncovers secrets more terrible than she ever imagined
and it soon becomes clear that nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted
– not even herself.
Lydia sprinted out of the
lounge, through the kitchen-dining room, out onto the back patio and down onto
the grass in her socked feet. Her heart felt like it had multiplied in her
chest and was hammering along with all its replicas out of sync. When she
turned back to the face the house, she saw the girl standing in the upstairs
window, looking down at her. A second later, she was gone.
She had left her cell phone
and everything else inside. She had nothing to protect herself with, so she
hurried to the tool shed near the garage to look for her gardening shears. When
she couldn't find them, she grabbed the garden rake instead and headed to the
gate with it.
When she got there, she
undid the latch and threw the gate open. But she had only taken a few steps
into the road outside when she felt a sudden vertigo descend on her. Various
planes of her vision shifted and an icy-sharpness cut across the surface of her
skin. She staggered back to the gate and inside the compound of the house.
It took her some time before
she could stand up straight. She looked back at the house with dread. The irony
of her situation was not lost on her – that she could no sooner go inside
feeling this way than she could leave the perimeter of the house without
risking another kind of panic attack. She was pitifully stranded.
