I know I’ve been a bad blogger. Seriously, I know I’ve probably lost several followers, but I have had the worst summer on the face of the planet. I can definitely say I’ve never had a worse one. Part of it was my own doing, part of it was God’s, and part of it was my mother-in-law’s.
I want to preface everything with…this will be the last time I complain about my summer, so please bare with me, and then I’ll get back to the fun, sticky smut you’re used to from me. Continue reading →
This is the final installment of the Blood’s Desire excerpts. I truly hope you have enjoyed the excerpts and have over looked my shameless self-publicity. It is over for now HEHEHE, until the next book is ready for publishing 🙂 If you’ve missed any of the other excerpts, please go to Trove Thursday to see them all.
End of chapter 17:
I waved to the boys as they backed out of the drive. I smiled to myself as I locked the door. I could still feel Gabriel’s essence, happy and agitated. I rolled my eyes and headed back toward the living room. I went to the Japanese end table to look through the mail. Then everything went black.
I opened my eyes to a pitch black room. There were no sounds, smells, or light. What happened? Where am I? I strained my ears to hear something. There was nothing, not even the sound of crickets. I tried moving around. I wasn’t tied down or locked into the spot I woke up in. I reached out in front of me. There wasn’t anything there, so I walked in a straight line until I found a wall.
The wall was grainy and had a damp soil smell. I was tempted to taste it, but I was afraid to find out if I was in the earth. I walked around the room keeping my hand on the wall, trying to find a way out. There wasn’t a door at hand level, so I started over again reaching above my head to the ceiling. I hoped for a window like one in a basement. Please, let there be a window. Let it be midnight. Please, find me Gabriel.
I hope you enjoyed. Please feel free to leave a comment, and as always, happy reading.
Felicity put out a challenge to write a flash fiction. I will not ruin the effects by telling you the topic. I hope you enjoy the following flash and check out her site. She’s amazing.
We all know the saying of what makes the heart grow fonder. Well that’s bullshit. My heart is breaking. You are here, in the next room, pretending I’m not here. But I am, I am here. Waiting for you, waiting for you to see me, waiting for you to know what you are letting go. But you are too stubborn to see what’s right here. Too ignorant to understand that I’m better than those you will never touch. Too selfish to realize that every time you leave my bed to be with those other women on the flickering screen that you break another piece of me. Soon I’ll be just a husk of the woman you married. Soon I’ll be a shadow of a memory. Soon I’ll find someone who will love me the way I deserve and I will leave. But for now, I wait and feel the coldness on your side of the bed creep up my spine and freeze my heart.
