Happy Tuesday, folks. Today's pic is just perfect for my current WIP, and this scene may very well make it into the story. Enjoy, I hope!
“Are you sure you want to get out here?” The taxi driver gave her an incredulous look when she passed the fare over.
“Yes, I’m quite sure.”
“If you say so, miss, but that place looks abandoned, and the stories folks tell. None of it good and it’ll be dark soon.”
Grasping for the handle, Evie gave the older man what she hoped was a reassuring smile.
“I’m expected, don’t you worry.”
At least she hoped he was still there, slumbering away, having created this illusion of abandonment. While she understood his need to protect himself, she remembered everything. Every small detail which had taken place at this mansion. It had taken her some time, six months to be precise to understand the garbled images in her brain, images which made sense of the feelings coursing through her. That deep void left behind that only he could fill.
The taxi sped away, and darkness fell. Huddled on the steps, she sensed rather than heard his approach.
“This is impossible.”
Smiling, Evie faced her vampire lover.
Hope you enjoyed my tease today. Please check out the other great peeps teasing:
