Daily Science Fiction :: Flights of Angels by Melissa Shaw

Author Story Notes
I find it interesting that going from pain or illness to relief from pain or illness can be an even more powerful emotional experience than going from a neutral state to exhilaration. The relief and even joy you feel when you've been sick and you finally start feeling better can be profound. Distilling and heightening that experience allowed me to explore the addiction issues that could arise.
