In emergent Singapore, a celebrity couple, Spiros and Ophelia fell in love and got married in due time. Their life was idyllic until the submerged and hitherto, unknown family legacy of Ophelia became manifest. A dark strand of sensitivity to the occult runs in her veins in spite of herself. As the dark specter attaches itself to her, the nightmare spirals out of control, and requires all the auda… city and shrewdness of the Qin elder-ship to outwit the dark entity. This, they do after a harrowing period of being at a standoff with terror itself. Victory is achieved, but at a price. Ophelia doesn't escape completely unscathed. The story at the end probes and questions the false security we have about life set purely in modern and rational paradigms. In spite of our knowledge of so many things in this universe, many more things remain a mystery and can bring disaster upon our heads without rhyme or reason. This fictional account is based on a true experience and incident, in this remarkable and exuberant island of Singapore, before she became a modern, financial powerhouse, she is today.
