And now for the next spooooky installment of A Soul Laid Bare!
Part 11 written by Amber Skye! (You can check out her blog here)

Sami figured that with Jareth around, her practical protector and savior, and a bunch of other party-goers, she'd be able to hide safely from the crazy trio that included Mr. Cooper, Rosie, and Dylan. Or she assumed they were all crazy. She had no idea what they were anymore.

Sami weaved in between the party-goers, Jareth in tow, and made her way toward the kitchen where she knew a stash of booze waited. She needed some, just a little alcohol, to clear the haze infecting her mind. Jareth didn't protest, only followed her because he wanted the necklace she was none too willing to give up.

She pressed her way between the booze, sweat-scented bodies, and threw herself into the kitchen. The lock to the liquor cabin was broken. Somebody had probably brought a pair of bolt cutters. Sami doubt Alex did it. Too much of a goody-good, even though this party could totally get her in trouble.

"Here, drink some," Sami said, thrusting a can of a Bud Light in Jareth's hands.

Jareth looked at it, scrunching his face. "I need that necklace of yours."

"Drink and you can have it."

Sami wanted to see if she could get Jareth drunk and pull some answers out of him. Mr. Cooper—if it was him—wanted her body, and she wanted to know why. Since Jareth knew this little fact, then he had to know why.

Sami popped open her can and took a swig. She watched Jareth mulling over the can, as if he had no idea how to do it. "Ever drink before?"

"Has a terrible scent," he said.

"Yeah, the shit's awful, but there's a reason people drink through the awful taste, and I totally think you should give it a try."

He was about to put his lips to the beer can, when several loud screams erupted from the main party room.

Sami dropped her can. "What the hell's going on?"

Jareth held out his hand. "Give me your necklace. Now.

  5. Please enter me in the treat contest only if it is international. Thank you! :D

  6. Get him drunk?!! I think she doesn't need a drink, she's already out of her mind!

  7. Get him drunk, so not what I expected and not sure that was the smartest thing to do anyway. Whats up with the necklace? Is jareth good?

  8. I'm still curious about the necklace. And I'm eager to find out what the big noise was in the other room.

  9. OK, really not what I was expecting. It seems a little odd that she would be getting drunk at a time like that, but each to their own. Maybe in that situation I would need a stiff drink as well.

  10. Yeah, I would totally go for a beer if my ex-best friend was trying to kill me with fireballs, my former softball coach was trying to steal my body, and some creepy dude from the past wanted my jewelry. :)

  11. I wonder whats up with the necklace. And what just happened in the other room.

  12. I'm gonna be sad when these are over :( Hopefully the last chapters are longggg :)

  13. I wonder what is so special about her necklace.

  18. Okay now I just want t know why he wants that necklace so bad!

  19. Beer in a liquor cabinet? Was it warm, then it would definitely be ewwww.

  20. What's up with this necklace??? Is it like a talisman or something??? And Jarreth.... Hmmm... very yummy!

  21. That was weird I wonder why he whats the necklace so bad! Their is alot going on very good story!

  22. I'm betting someone got hurt :)

  23. Wuh-oh. I sense some action coming on!

  24. What is she doing drinking when there are super dangerous crazies everywhere! Oh, to be a teen...

  25. I thought Sami was going crazy, but maybe she figures that's the only way to get information? We shall see...

  26. Not many installments left...not sure how this one will wrap up

  27. The necklace is interesting...could be something special?
