With the revision of Book 1 completed and Book 2 now making steady progress, I’ve decided to provide little snippet teasers to keep you going until the releases are public. You can sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of this page.
As I come downstairs Caelsah comes towards me, I catch my breath – would I ever get use to his beauty? My curiosity then gets the better of me. “Stay right there,” I say. “Don’t move.”
He stops in place and frowns at me, I grin. Following the same patterns I did this afternoon with Mom, Dad and Tryaethus, I focus until I’m able to see his Aura. I suck in my breath and stagger backwards, causing me to lose my footing as I land on the stairs. “Oh my.” Is all I can manage through the awe. His Aura is absolutely the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I take a deep breath trying to remain in control – but my heart starts racing and my breathing becomes shallow.
“Ruana!” I hear Caelsah call my mom’s name.
The next thing I know Mom has one hand over my eyes while she rubs my back with the other encouraging me to breathe. As my pulse and breathing returned to normal I feel like such an idiot and embarrassment burns into my cheeks.
‘Amanae, honey, don’t be silly, there is nothing to be embarrassed about. It is simply a fact that some people’s Aura have that kind of effect on us.’
‘Mom?! I fell down with my mouth wide open and couldn’t even make myself blink. Over what? Caelsah’s Aura?! I may as well have thrown myself at his feet and started kissing them!’
Mom chuckles, ‘You’re overreacting, honey. Come on, take a deep breath and let’s go join everyone else.’
