"Invite me in."
The voice that haunted Elyssa's dreams compelled her to move, and the breath stalled in her lungs when she opened the door.
"You can't be… you're—"
"I am and I'm here. I told you I would find a way back to you, baby."
Jason's smile lit up his face, and his beloved features blurred through her tears.
"You have to invite me in, baby."
Instinctively her fingers reached out to touch him, to trace the tattoo he hadn't had before and her skin warmed under the heated intensity of his gaze. The tenseness in his shoulders stopped her, and she took a step back into the relative safety of her hallway.
"In, I know." Elyssa stepped back further and shook her head and this version of Jason snarled. He punched the doorframe with enough force to rattle the foundations and that shiver of unease trailing up her spine engulfed her in an ice cold fist.
"You're not him. He wouldn't need an invitation."
The creature on her doorstep burst into flames and his putrid, hot breath singed her hair, even as Jason's familiar scent enveloped her.
"That's my girl. I'm here. It's okay."
