“Okay, I hope you’re happy now,” Deed said to the ghost that stood next to him. “I told him the whole deal; now do you mind just going away for a while and giving me some extra room to breathe?”
They were both standing in the doorway watching as Trent reversed out of the yard.
“He won’t listen,” Peter said solemnly.
“Well, that’s just too bad. Ain’t it?” Deed gave him an irritated look. “Not my problem, buddy. Remember… I’m just the messenger.”
He turned around only to find Peter directly in front of him. “He loves her too much,” Peter said, his eyes so dull and lifeless—the looks of which made Deed want to take a drink.
“So what does that have to do with me?” Deed probed. “What’re you saying anyway? He loves her too much. What? What?”
Peter’s gaze was piercing. “You must warn him,” he said before vanishing into thin air.
Deed shook his head. “That guy’s determined to be a needle in my butt. The more you do for these blasted ghosts the more they want from you! Hell with it!” He slammed the front door.

This just can’t be happening, Trent thought. That Deed Grumbley guy must be out of his mind! Yet, deep inside Trent knew better—the guy had spoken with such veracity that only a fool would choose to ignore what had stared him right in the face. As he pulled into the parking lot of the hospital, the fact that Deed basically confirmed everything Tina had been telling him all the while weighed heavily on Trent. She was in a place he knew she didn’t belong and he had put her through so much emotional pain that he was certain she would never forgive him.
He picked up the single rose he had purchased at a stop light on his way there and walked into the building toward Palenski’s office.
“Come right in!” Palenski was standing at his desk. “When my secretary said you were here, I knew I couldn’t have you waiting as you’re a very busy man, Mister Matheson.”
Trent took a seat. He hadn’t recalled seeing Palenski that upbeat before and wondered if his partial consumption of the cup of coffee on his desk was responsible.
“Is that for me?” Palenski asked, eyeing the rose.
“I think not,” Trent replied, obviously in no mood for meaningless chatter and definitely not for jokes.
Palenski sat down. “Can I offer you some coffee or tea?”
“No thanks, Doc. I’m just here to see Tina and to find out how she’s progressing.”
“Well, the good news is that we might have pin-pointed the appropriate medication for her. She’s responding very well to it and after a little more observation, I would be able to revert to you. If she continues to do well, she will be back home with you and your baby in short order. However, the key is to ensure that she takes her medication precisely as prescribed because we don’t want any distressing episodes to arise as before. You know what I mean.”
“I do,” Trent affirmed.
“Well, I don’t want to keep you any longer than necessary, so I’ll walk with you to her room. We can chat on the way.”

The hooded, faceless figures were said to have astral projected — mere humans in their most powerful form. They will stop at nothing to get the child, their leader, and Matheson must face the unnerving consequence of his unwillingness to hand it over to them.

Book Review by Amazon TOP 500 REVIEWER Pennie Mae Cartawick. Author of the Sherlock Holmes book series
May 28, 2015
5.0 out of 5 stars ‘CORNELIUS‘. “A great read of paranormal suspense.”
Format: Kindle Edition
“This is the first time reading one of Tanya R. Taylor’s books and I have to admit, I wasn’t disappointed. She is not new to the publishing world as she takes it by storm with fiction and non fiction genres. Amongst them, she writes mysteries, paranormal romance, religious thrillers, and science fiction just to name a few.
“‘Cornelius’ is a gritty ‘edge of your seat’ tale of paranormal forces, so if chilling, suspenseful, and down right nail biting pleasure is your thing, (with a splash of romance) then this novel is the one for you.
“It has a little bit of every flavor thrown our way with a non-stop reading experience of unimaginable consequence to suit all ages. The author ‘Tanya’ certainly has a vivid imagination using splendid scenery to really take us into the depth of her mind as the danger of darkness seeps through the cracks from another world.
Extremely strong characterization that captures the essence of discovering ‘Cornelius’ and I highly recommend it. ‘
Her blood-curdling scream filled the air, yet the woods behind the mansion was eerily quiet and paid no attention to her desperate cry for help. Tina Sheffield was staring at the thing that had just slid out of her — still attached to the other end of the umbilical cord. She wanted to get up and run out of there as fast as her legs could take her, but her physical connection to the one that shared her DNA prevented her from being able to do so. Furthermore, blood and a watery substance had settled beneath her and between them. She wished she had a pair of scissors, a knife or any sharp tool to cut the fleshy cord and separate herself forever from the newborn with the beaming, green eyes and grotesquely distorted face. She was hyper-ventilating and felt that she was about to lose all sense of consciousness when she heard a dangling of keys near the front door, then the door opening and shutting again.
“Tina, I’m home!” went the voice she was so relieved to hear.
“Trent!” She cried at the top of her lungs still staring at what lay in front of her. “Hurry! Please!”
Holding the plastic bag that contained the large bowl of vanilla ice-cream, Trent came upon a sight on his living room floor that absolutely shocked him.
“Oh my God! What in the world…” He quickly put the bag down and rushed over to Tina.
Tina was drenched in tears. “Get a scissors or a knife quickly, Trent! Cut the cord! Please cut this frigging cord!” She pleaded.
“Okay,” Trent was suddenly feeling nauseous; his mind racing and unearthly thoughts flooding his brain. He ran to the kitchen for a large knife and seconds later, was back.
“Cut it!” Tina demanded.
“Where?” He asked nervously.
Trent’s hand was shaking as he attempted to sever the umbilical cord. He looked away as the thing snapped cleanly in two. Tina backed away hurriedly, still on her buttocks as more liquid gushed from her body with the hasty movement.
“I’ll… I’ll get some towels,” Trent said, rushing upstairs.
Tina sat against the wall shaking violently as if on the verge of a melt-down. The baby had managed to get a thumb near its lips and was now lightly sucking it. Trent returned moments later and took the large towel over to Tina. He helped her as she placed it against her vagina to stop the dripping. He then hurried over to the baby, knelt down beside it and gently picked it up.
“We have to get you to the hospital,” Trent said to Tina.
With her eyes still fixated on the infant, she asked, “What is that?”
Trent grimaced. “Tina, it’s our baby.”
“No!” She protested. “It’s not! It’s not our baby, Trent! How could it be our baby?”
“What do you mean it’s our baby? Look at it! It’s a monster! Can’t you see?”
Trent was at a loss for words.
“What’re we gonna do with it?”
“What do you mean?”
“I have to go to the hospital, so what’re we gonna do with it?”
“Tina, the baby’s coming with us,” Trent said matter-of-factly.
“Oh no, it’s not.” She shook her head. There was now a strange calmness in her voice. “That thing is not coming anywhere with me. No one’s gonna know that I gave birth to such a hideous, ungodly creature.”
Then suddenly, her eyes widened as she saw that the child had instantaneously and inexplicably assumed full human form. His black hair was pencil straight and his eyes, brown and entrancing.
“Oh my goodness, do you see that?” She asked, as if disbelieving her own eyes.
“Yes, honey. I see our beautiful baby,” Trent replied, realizing that something on the inside of Tina had snapped.
“What’s wrong with me? Am I seeing things?” She asked earnestly.
He was afraid to answer. The baby started to cry.
“Bring him to me,” Tina urged.
Trent carefully handed the child to her.
“He looks just like you, honey.” She held the infant closely. “He has your eyes.”
“He does. Doesn’t he?” Trent smiled.
They gazed lovingly at the child whose arrival they had anxiously awaited. However, not envisioning for a moment that he would arrive into the world on his father’s living room floor.
“We have to get you two to the hospital,” Trent reminded Tina.
“Okay,” she smiled, now accepting of the idea that both mother and baby would be going.
He took the baby and helped Tina up off the floor.
