As promised I’m giving you the 3rd and final teaser from my novelette today. It’s my favorite scene.
Dane could not sleep that night. He just sat on the couch in his apartment and thought of her. Her voice, her scent, her touch, he wanted it all.
When Roman returned home at dawn looking refreshed from having enjoyed a night of pleasure, he stared at Dane who still sat on the couch, his suit wrinkled and his body in agony.
“She didn’t fulfill her purpose yet?” Roman teased.
“No,” he moaned in frustration.
“My friend, you’ll kill yourself at this rate. What you need is a fresh woman who will adhere to your every need.”
“But that’s just it. I don’t want anyone else. Jenna is…”
“Jenna? Now you’re referring to her by name? What do you mean by this?”
He scowled at Roman. “I don’t know. I mean, what are we doing? None of us know how or why we came into existence, or why there seems to be no end to our days. But we’ve lived alongside humans for thousands of years and, though their lives are short, some create bonds that you and I could never dream of.”
Roman shook his head and smirked. “You’ve lost it. I hope she’s worth it.”
It’s difficult to go back through your work and try to pull out a small portion to share. I can’t wait to hear what everyone has to say about the entire story, but also want to reiterate that this is a novelette. It is about a quarter of the size of most novels, half of most novellas. I don’t want anyone to be confused or disappointed.
Release day is next Wednesday April the 15th!
