Cordy Sachs, who was dressed in a Franconia designer wedding dress, was looking at
the reflection of her dazzling, beautiful face in the mirror.
After dating Kyle Wickham for three years, they were finally tying the knot—he still loved
her even though everyone was trying to put her down. Smiling expectantly with tears welling in her eyes, she reared her chin slightly as she lifted her skirt and started toward the door… only for rolling wisps of smoke to seep through the slit around the door, creeping into the washroom impatiently as if looking for an outlet.
