It's been a while since I've done a sneak peek. Things have been a bit hectic around here, but I'm hoping after our move it will settle down. *Crossing My Fingers*
This week I have a little snippet from Shadow Stalker Episode 18, which hasn't been edited yet, so I'm hoping it reads okay (I have double checked it, but I'm so preoccupied with the move, I'm sure I've missed something). Hope you enjoy it!
"I'm so sorry you've had to endure this, Jade. After I heard you'd been captured, I tried to rescue you, but I failed…obviously. Deakan was supposed—"
At the mention of his name, Jade's head whipped around. She searched the room frantically, whispering his name. Then her gaze fell on mine and recognition lit her eyes. "Auren?"
"Yes, it's me," I said, tears spilling as I hugged my friend.
Jade pulled away. "Is this real?"
I stroked the side of her face. "It is, Jade. It's real."
"I've dreamed about you…and Deakan, but I always woke, and you were gone."
"I'm so sorry, Jade, but I'm not going away this time."
Jades eyes glazed over and she whispered, "Don't cry. It will be over soon."
"Jade?" I tried turned her face towards mine, but she was gone. "Jade."
Makari rested his hand on my shoulder. "Remember Auren, you'll have to be patient with her. Just talk to her and let her come to you."
