Three years ago this week, the fiction bug bit me, sending me on this wonderful journey of words and friends. The book that came out of that first exciting rush of writing was my vampire romance, Forever Freed. So, in honor of the anniversary, here are six from the Black Moment (dun dun dun!) in this book. Lucien is speaking to a sleeping five-year-old child:
“I love you, precious Ollie. The way you accepted me, the way you looked at me—I’ll never forget your kindness or your love. I hope you’ll always be able to remember how much I loved and adored you. You and your mom will have long wonderful lives together. And though we won’t see each other again”—I paused, swallowing down the nauseating blend of Samantha’s emotions and my own turmoil—“know I’ll always be thinking about you, wondering what great things you’re accomplishing.” I took a deep breath, steadying my voice, then whispered, “Dream sweet dreams, Ollie, forever.”
Oops! Did I forgot to mention HANKY ALERT! LOL
DOUBLE HANKY ALERT if you think about/listen to Billy Joel's "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)" (embedded in yesterday's post) while reading this!
