Zachary Marek looked up into the deep-blue eyes of his wife, a halo of blonde curls framing her sweet face. He knew that it wasn't real, that it couldn't be real, but he prayed for continued sleep because this was, by far, the best dream he'd had since he'd come to Albania.

"You are so beautiful," he told her in his dream. She smiled and warmth bloomed in his chest, seeping gradually through his body.

"I love you," she whispered as she lowered her mouth to his, her weight shifting over her hands, which were pressed to his chest. She kissed him, and he could taste the mint of her toothpaste and smell the rose-scented bodywash she used.

Zach shifted to lighten the weight, which was pressing heavily on his chest, a weight that was much heavier than it should have been. He was shattered by disappintment when Christie's soft features wavered and morphed into Raade's bloody corpse. No, don't go! Raade's arm dripped with blood as he pointed at Zach. "Thought it was you, Maek, thought you were a bloodthirsty traitor. Who's the traitor? Better find out. He might know where Christie is. Knows Christie. Christie and Gideon. Watch out!"
