“What is it?” Becca asked and knelt to have a closer look.

“Touch it. It’s super cool,” Veronica suggested and knelt behind her best friend.

Becca reached out and stuck a finger into the shimmering liquid-like air. Pain bit at the tip and she recoiled. The end of her finger, to the first knuckle, had vanished.

“That’s what happens to people who sleep with my husband,” Veronica whispered in Becca’s ear before shoving her forward.
