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.
We are taking a break when I feel a slight tug at my own Aura. It’s an odd feeling. I look around to find Shalar staring at me. I suck in my breath as I look at her and reach my hand out to Tryaethus. Without any effort on my part I can see Shalar’s Aura. She’s even more beautiful than when I had first seen her. I take a deep breath and fight to control my interaction with her Aura. As soon as I had looked at her, parts of her Aura started reaching out to me. But it’s different, and I can tell that she’s fighting against allowing her Aura to connect with mine. The colors of her Aura are rapidly transitioning from light to dark – back and forth.
I frown, trying to understand what I’m seeing. Tryaethus is holding my hand and watching me intently. “It’s ok,” I whisper.
Then to Shalar, ‘what wrong have I done you to cause you so much anguish and for you to dislike me so much?’ I ask.
She glares at me, ‘Because of you, he will never be mine – even when you cast him aside, which you will, because you have no idea what is at your finger tips. You are stupid and naïve and should never have returned to this village!’
While she spoke, her Aura turned very dark and I can feel the anger radiate from her. It takes me by surprise. ‘Shalar, I’m sorry, I don’t understand what you are talking about – I truly don’t wish to be your enemy.’
She continues to glare at me, ‘You are in love with a human are you not?’
I’m confused as to how she would know that, ‘Yes, as a matter of fact I am. Is it a human you want?’
‘Do not be absurd!’ she scoffs. ‘I at least know and appreciate who I am. You on the other hand do not, nor do you appreciate the significance or meaning behind the ways of our people. Your ignorance is going to cause much pain and I loathe you for the people you are going to hurt. I care not whether you wish to be my enemy – a friend you will never be!’ With that she spins and storms off.
