I don't trust people who follow their hearts. Hearts are peculiar things. They're necessary muscles that
keep us alive by pumping blood and oxygen into our veins. Hearts are also compulsory, often making us
foolish. They pull us towards others with a force that aches, burns, and satiates you all at once. Before
you know it that mass of tissue is no longer yours.
Maybe mine never was.
In my case, that draw came from a stranger that left my heart feeling both fulfilled and consumed.
I didn't expect to fight her for the last standby seat to New York City. I didn't plan on letting her get
under my skin. Or the way her vulnerability tore me up inside and compelled me to care for her. She
didn't plan on letting me witness her chaos.
Her anxious heart and my perfectionist mind let things get messy.
And though we didn't plan for it, our interrupting of each others' lives was exactly what we needed.
Sometimes the mess is the most beautiful part of life.

We opted for dessert wine and some cheese instead of traditional sweets. The more wine she had the
more unfiltered Margo became. She wasn't exactly holding back in the first place, but her last
semblance of restraint melted away.
After paying for dinner, we walked out into the cold fall night. I wanted to take Margo somewhere I
knew would make her nervous. Mostly, I wanted to push her to that point of no control to see if I could
at least hold her again in some way. Any touch was better than none.
Sure, it was fucked up of me to purposely make her nervous, but I was desperate. And where in the past
I would have blatantly flirted and tiptoed over lines with women, I didn't want to do that with her. I
wanted her to come to me. There was something about letting things unfold naturally that pushed me
to be on my best behavior.
It wasn't easy though. She'd lick her lips, beckoning me to look at them. Her tongue danced over her
crimson lips, inducing a jolt of arousal that shocked through my entire body and ended in my cock.
Images of what her naked body and imaginings of how she sounded when she came flooded my mind. I
couldn't take it any longer. If I got her in bed, I wouldn't need foreplay. I probably wouldn't last very long
either. Wouldn't that be painfully unfortunate?
In her tipsiness, she allowed me to put my arm around her waist as we walked. We'd done so in silence
till I continued down some subway stairs. She jolted to a stop at the top and shoved against my arms.
Despite trying to pull her forward, she slithered out of my grasp. "Come on, you gotta do it if you're
going to live here, Margo."
I took two steps down, leaving us at eye level.
Her eyes turned glassy, and they couldn't focus on me. She'd dart from my eyes to the half-lit buildings,
or at the people ignoring her odd reaction. "I don't have to do it today, Hudson. I may not move at all…."
"Do you trust me?"
She hesitated, again looking around at her options for running away before eventually giving in.
"Then come here, I'll take care of you," I said, the truth of my words surprising me.
Reaching out to her, I waited for her to join me. She tilted her head and assessed me, staring into my
eyes before lowering her gaze to my lips then throat. Was she that afraid of the subway? Or was it the
offer of my hand?
I think it was my words. On the plane the night before, Margo looked at me with such surprise. Sure,
we'd bickered, but I’d helped her, and she probably hadn't expected that. Maybe she'd never trusted
anyone and didn't know why she wanted to trust me. Just like I didn't know why I wanted her so
desperately, or struggled with that same unexpected confusion I couldn't silence.
Clasping my hand, she followed me to the automated machine downstairs where I purchased two one-
way tickets. We approached the platform, and every little noise startled her. It was kind of cute to see
her conquering her fears, but what impressed me was her need to prove herself to both of us. We
boarded the over-filled train and had no option but to stand towards the back of the cart. With so many
people around, we were squashed close together. I could feel the warmth radiating off her flawless skin.
I could smell the remains of her incense and roses perfume that tempted me to lean in and press my
nose and lips against her soft throat. The wine had also left me a little unhinged, stealing touches here
and there. And she let me. Not once did she address my hand gripping her lower back whenever the
As if the universe could hear my plea, the train pulled out of the next station with a quick jerk and
Margo's body propelled into mine. I caught her and wrapped my arms awkwardly around her waist. We
were sealed together: her breasts on my lower chest, her torso leaning against my stomach and belt, the
apex of her legs just barely cupping the center of my groin. I started hardening immediately, and I doubt
it went unnoticed. All my hard edges were at home against her softness.
I couldn't help myself.
I pressed my lips to the top of her head and leaned over her. Holding my breath, I waited for her
reaction to my brash affection, but she gave me back something I hadn't expected. She looked up at me
and smiled. It was wide and brazen like her others, but it was also laced with a twinge of sadness. She
whispered one thing. "You."
To which I replied, "Me?"
Margo nodded and pulled the collar of my shirt down before pressing her lips against my neck. They
opened and left wet traces of her along my skin. It felt like fire—painful, searing, and warm. I wanted all
of her, and I hoped that was Margo's way of telling me she wanted the same.
The train stopped and so did she. When she saw Times Square again, she inhaled deeply, the way
someone does after swimming underwater for too long. With a squeeze of her shoulder, I led her
straight into our hotel; the sooner I got her in private, the better. The elevator music was accompanied
with my heartbeat and the machinery groaning around us. I could see all the ways I wanted to please
her so clearly in my head, and every nerve ending in my body was burning with the need to touch her.
But I couldn't. I wasn't sure I could go through with it.
Have you ever had a moment so perfect that you don't want to do anything to fuck it up? That night
with the girl in the dress and Chucks was a string of perfect moments all dangling together in my mind.
Despite assuming I'd never see Margo again, I still didn't want to risk messing up the image I'd always
have of her. It just didn't seem right, at least not if I initiated it. I didn't want her rejection to taint the
pedestal she'd earned in my mind.
While I watched her walking ahead of me, I thought about making any move I could. I thought about
kissing her again and seeing where it went. I considered just bluntly telling her I wanted to be inside her.
Maybe she'd have liked that. But as she slid the key into her room door, I remained frustratingly mute.
Margo turned and looked at me with heavy eyelids and flushed cheeks. In a raspy whisper, she said
words I'd been dying to hear.
"Do you want to come in?"
"Really?" I stepped back. The desperation I had for her sincerity was drowning me in doubt.
Margo moved closer, pressing her soft center against my firm one. With her hand against my throat,
feeling my pounding heartbeat beneath my stubble-laden skin, she looked up at me. Her gaze was
penetrating and flooded with desire.
"Hudson, we've been eye-fucking each other all night, let's be honest now. I'm dying to know what you'll
do to me if I let you."
With that admission, I became someone else. An animal. A tempted addict. A man craving only her.
Grabbing her arm, I pushed her in and shut the door by slamming her against the back of it. She looked
up with the most evocative grin and hummed in approval. Looking down at her, I grabbed her neck and
wrapped my fingers around it.
"You have no idea what I've imagined tonight thanks to this fucking dress and that delicious mouth."
Before she could reply, I sealed my lips against hers. There was no turning back.

Belfast Bound ~ Series
Lex's Melody - Belfast Bound #1
Lex's Melody is Leigh Stone's first erotic novel, set in the Northern Ireland city of Belfast.
Alex Matthews is a tall, handsome dominant. He exists on the thrill that having a woman submit to him creates. He doesn't date, he doesn't commit. He works hard as an architect by day, and demands control over his submissives in his downtime. Melody Anderson is a 26-year-old college student who is about to change all that.
When her best friend Jonny suggests that she try a dating website, Mel has no idea where it will lead. Alex finds her profile compelling, and on their first meeting in the oldest bar in Belfast makes the suggestion that she should submit to him. Enthralled by where this could lead, Mel agrees, and the pair find themselves bound together in submission and dominance.
Alex soon finds that with Mel, his previous vice of submission only, isn't enough, and he yearns to make their relationship more, but a dark shadow from Alex's past looms menacingly on the horizon.
Will Alex overcome his fears from the past and find a future with Mel, or will it all end in tragedy?
Contains graphic sexual scenes including those with BDSM overtones. Also contains graphic language, and therefore is not suitable for under 18's.
Melodic Minor - Belfast Bound #2
SYNOPSIS: They say the course of true love never runs smooth, and that’s certainly been the experience for Alex and Mel. Fear drove them away from each other, and tragedy almost tore them apart forever.
In a continuation of the love affair between Alex and Melody, we join the pair right where Lex’s Melody left off, and this time we get to hear the tale through their own words in this first person narrative.
What does fortune now hold for the lovers, can they settle down and have the future together that they both deserve, or will old fears be renewed and threaten to pull them apart again?
Only time will tell!
Pulled Apart - Belfast Bound #3
SYNOPSIS: It’s been a long journey to get here. A long, painful journey, I have the scars, nightmares, and panic attacks to prove it. I never would have believed, all those years ago, that Oliver Watson would have been my worst nightmare. I’m not sorry that he’s dead. I’m just sorry that it wasn’t at my hand. I hate him. I hate what he did to me. I hate what he has taken from me. More than anything, I hate him for taking the coward's way out. He was supposed to rot in prison for his crimes, not leave me to be the only one to face what happened.
I’m Juliet Monroe. I’m twenty-five years old and I have been through hell. I’ve learned so much about myself. The thing that I’ve learned most is just how strong I can be, but as strong as I am, without my friends, I wouldn’t be here. I’ve learned that friends can be your lifelines, friends can be your support, friends can be your saviours, and sometimes, they might just save your life.
**WARNING** This book is intended for mature audiences (18+) only. The storyline is a rape survivor's retelling of their story, and as such may cause distress. While acts of violence are depicted, it is vital to the main premise of being able to move on with hope.

They say in order to find yourself you have to go home.
What if home was what you're running from?
Always on the other side of the fence.
Always wishing you were someone you couldn't be.
She was my high, but she was also...
Colors blended together making it hard to focus on one thing. I blinked a few times
As if she was standing right in front of me.
I felt my lips curl up slightly at the vision as I reached out for her. Wanting to touch
her, needing to hold her, yearning to kiss her. Craving, God, craving to fucking love
“I’m sorry,” I murmured out loud to no one but the illusion of my drug-infested
mind. “I’m so fucking sorry,” I repeated repentantly, longing for her to believe me.
Aching for her to love me again like she used to.
I don’t know how long I sat there, staring at her beautiful face before my eyes,
subconsciously rubbing the tattooed key that was placed over my heart. I couldn’t
take it anymore, and the desire won over the haze.
I grabbed my phone. “Baby,” I said into the speaker. The ringing quickly followed,
going straight to voicemail. I hung up and tried again. “Baby,” I urged with
I would try until the end of time if that’s what it took for her to answer.
Time just seemed to standstill, as my life slowly played out in front of me. Trying to
balance in between the light and the darkness when all I could see was gray.
“What?!” she screamed into the phone, finally answering after I don’t know how
many failed attempts. “What the hell do you want now?”
“Mi cielo.” I breathed a sigh of relief.
She ignored my term of endearment. I hadn’t called her that in such a long time.
“What do you want, Austin? Why are you calling me? We’re over! I can’t do this
I shut my eyes and let my mind wonder, allowing it to go to another place in time
“I remember the first time I made you smile,” I chuckled, as if it had just happened.
My nerves were on fire. The mere sound of her breathing through the phone was too
intense for me. I licked my lips, my mouth suddenly dry.
“I remember when you used to smile just for me. Do you remember, baby? Do you
remember what my love feels like?”
“Do you remember my hands on you? My lips? My tongue? The first time I made you
come with my mouth? Do you remember all the times since? Tell me I’m not
forgotten. Tell me you remember, baby.”
“I love you, Briggs. I love you so fucking much. You’re killing me, don’t you see that?
“No, Austin. You were dying with me,” she rasped, knowing that it killed her to say
“The first time I saw your face, I thought to myself, damn, this beautiful girl is goin’
to be the death of me. You were perfect in every way. I was a cocky son of a bitch
who needed you then, as much as I need you now.”
“I had a dream about you, baby. I always fucking dream about you. In my dream you

This was a quick and enjoyable read I liked the characters and felt drawn
into their lives as the story progressed. I look forward to more books by Ms.
Sarah Cass. ~ tiggz
The story is well written though and I love the secondary characters too.
Though short and sweet, it does have an HEA and can be read as a stand

About Sarah Cass
Sarah Cass' world is regularly turned upside down by her three special needs
kids and loving mate, so she breaks genre barriers; dabbling in horror,
straight fiction and urban fantasy. She loves historicals and romance, and
characters who are real and flawed, so she writes to understand what makes
her fictional people tick. And she lives for a happy ending - eventually. And
enough twists to make it look like she enjoys her title of Queen of Trauma
Drama a little too much.
An ADD tendency leaves her with a variety of interests that include singing,
dancing, crafting, cooking, and being a photographer. She fights through the
struggles of the day, knowing the battles are her crucible; she may emerge
scarred, but always stronger. The rhythms to her activities drive her words
forward, pushing her through the labyrinths of the heart and the nightmares
of the mind, driving her to find resolutions to her characters' problems.
While busy creating worlds and characters as real to her as her own family,
she leads an active online life with her blog, Redefining Perfect, which gives
a real and sometimes raw glimpse into her life and art. You can most often
find her popping out her 140 characters in Twitter speak, and on Facebook.

I’ve got my looks, my charm, and well, a smile that melts panties. My charm only gets me so far though.
Apparently, that limit is the law.
I don’t even care when the courts finally give me a punishment for vandalising the church property; in
my defence, I didn’t know it was a church.
They’ve got me serving three months of community service working at the local church’s Salvation
They think three months here will change me; that I will change my delinquent ways. If only they knew...
nothing could ever tame me.
I was taught at an early age that love destroys you. I accept that I’ll never love and I’ll never be loved.
What I’ve learned though is that love is also your greatest weakness; it’s why that one four letter word
will never leave my mouth.
I’m Lake Miller...
For the past year of my life I’ve never stayed anywhere longer than a few weeks. I’d sleep at different
homeless shelters, park benches or anywhere I could find a dry place to sleep; the only belongings I have
Now I’ve ended up in Coldenshire; tired of sleeping on the streets, tired of hurting and tired of eating
scraps of food.
So when a chance encounter for a job at the local church shelter popped up, I took it. I know my time
here is running out and that I should run, especially when the town bad boy, who is sexy as sin and
annoying as hell, walks through the doors thinking he’s God’s gift to women.
He thinks life is a joke, that his smart mouth hides the pain behind his eyes, but he’s so off track I’m
surprised he’s not lost.
I see the real him, and I don’t want anything to do with him, but he makes it hard when he’s always in
my face. I have my own pain, my own loss and grief to suffer through; I don’t need anyone else’s.
I don’t need anything.
Not love, not sympathy, and certainly not forgiveness, after all, I killed my brother.
I’m a murderer.

Author: Laura Ward
Release Date: May 23, 2016
Dean Goldsmith is Indiana University’s star quarterback, and his dreams are about to come true. His
undefeated season means he has a legitimate shot at the NFL. If he stays focused. Football comes first.
College senior, Grace Yeates, is determined to defy the odds. She is months away from graduating with a
business degree, something no one thought she would be able to pull off. All she has to do is focus on
her number one priority. Family comes first.
Dean has no time for distractions, but when a gorgeous, snarky, redheaded waitress refuses to tell him
her name, he can’t seem to focus on anything else.
Grace knows she can’t let herself get caught up in a guy, particularly a man-whore like Dean, no matter
how charming or sexy. She has two hearts to look out for now and no room for a Dean-sized distraction.
Everyone in Dean’s life agrees that Grace is the kind of complication his career doesn’t need.
Grace knows that Dean is the kind of risk her heart shouldn’t want.
But what if the last person you think you need, the one you shouldn’t want, becomes the one you can’t
live without? Can their biggest distraction actually be the focus they were missing all along?

My heart hammered in my chest. “Why do you ask me my favorites all the time?”
Dean grinned and then bent to kiss my lips. “I’ve never wanted to get to know a girl. I want to know
every part of you and every favorite you have. Everything that makes you happy so that I can be the
person who never lets you down and always brings you your favorites.”
“Well, I want to know your favorites too. Let me think…” I tapped my finger on my chin. “Where’s your
favorite place for me to kiss you?” As soon as the question escaped from my mouth, the meaning hit my
brain. Dean had a wicked gleam in his eyes, and I hid my face in his chest. “Oh, Lord. Did I just ask that?”
His chuckle rumbled beneath me. “You did. And I love your dirty little mind, Red. If I’m being honest, I
can’t answer that. Cause you haven’t kissed me everywhere… yet.”
Mortified. I was absolutely mortified. I had a choice. I could be shy and feel awkward, or I could own it.
Two seconds later I decided. I was owning it.
I raised my head and pressed a kiss on his chest. Then I lifted onto my elbows and shimmied a bit down
“Let’s rectify that, shall we?”

For five hundred years I have feasted on the blood of the innocent.
For centuries I have seduced beautiful victims into my bed.
And all this time, I have never gone without…
I am Zachariah…
While enduring endless days as an immortal, only one urge soothes my savage need.
I have consumed countless humans—I have witnessed mountains of corpses piled beneath my
feet. But none more significant than the woman I once loved.
My heart was not the only one she captured, but it would be the last…
An inferior creature turned her heart against me—Adam. Such a pathetic identity to be named
after the original creation of God, and always besting me in life. But in death—I am king.
I am far more treacherous.
I should be feared.
I demand to be remembered.
And I am, for being known as the immortal who slayed the woman we both loved, and my
Now in the scorching desert, I find prey well worth the chase…
And my interest in this mortal runs deep. Adam has pursued me over the globe in search of
revenge—but his own weaknesses have made him vulnerable. He’s taken to the striking mortal,
which means only one thing.
She will be my next target.
But this time, not for the taste of blood. I will take her as my own mate, and neither Adam, or
anyone else, will stop me…

Canada, 2165 AD. The Water Wars and a decimated economy have taken their toll. Anyone who doesn't
live in a military-patrolled metropolis lives in a clan. But being in a clan doesn't mean safety.
And for a Ven like Roan Lee, it doesn't matter where he lives. Safety is a luxury. So is freedom.
Roan is desperate to escape the governtary's exploitation and torture. He is nothing to them but 54σK1,
an artifact born from a genetic mishap. When the chance to escape arises, he makes a run for it—and
encounters the lover from his past, twisting his future into a second chance he never expected.
As leaders of Clan Teach, Jace Ama and his wife, Cayra Diega, have enough difficulty keeping their
people safe. When Roan is thrown to their feet as a prisoner, their marriage becomes an additional challenge.
Jace still loves Roan, but where does that place Cayra?
Archer Kay Leah was raised in Canada, growing up in a port town at a time when it was starting to
become more diverse, both visibly and vocally. Combined with the variety of interests found in Archer’s
family and the never-ending need to be creative, this diversity inspired a love for toying with characters and
their relationships, exploring new experiences and difficult situations.
Archer most enjoys writing speculative fiction and is engaged in a very particular love affair with fantasy,
especially when it is dark and emotionally charged. When not reading and writing for work or play, Archer is
a geek with too many hobbies and keeps busy with other creative endeavors, a music addiction, and whatever
else comes along. Archer lives in London, Ontario with a same-sex partner and their cat.

Declan Wilder has never met a witch he didn’t hate. He is in the business of
protecting the world from all things paranormal, after all. But what happens when
one glimpse at an enchanting McKenna Sawyer sends him spinning? Suddenly,
Declan can’t help but question everything he thought he knew about the world he’s
been sworn to protect for so long.
Plagued by her parents’ death, McKenna Sawyer has no interest in anything outside
of her family’s business and her sister’s happiness. So when she’s assigned to warn a
Pursuer about his impending death, she’s less than prepared for the way he shifts
her world on its axis. And when more time spent with him leads to more secrets
about their world revealed, they must decide how their universes fit together — if at
The paranormal world is gearing up for a fight, and both Declan and McKenna have
been called to battle. But the question remains — will they be fighting for or against
Pulling McKenna close to my body, I lock my hands behind her back. I can’t help but
chew on the inside of my cheek, the close proximity to her already overwhelming all
of my senses.
She sighs contently and clasps her hands loosely around my neck, bringing her head
up to lay it just below my shoulder. Her body shudders under mine, and I can feel
her erratic heartbeat thumping against my chest.
“You’ve never done anything like this,” I whisper loud enough for her to hear and
she shakes her head, agreeing with me. “You’ve never danced with someone you’ve
just met. It makes you nervous and you’re wondering if you’re going to get caught
up in it—in me.” I’m tilling the line now. I know we don’t have a future—hell, or
even a tomorrow. The moment I’m done with this case, Wood and I are out of here
and it’s not likely for us to come back. But I want to show her what it’s like to let go,
even for a night.
“I want to let go,” she whispers and I wonder if she intended for me to hear it.
I keep silent as we dance and move to the song, the melodic melody lulling us
farther into each other. Her scent engulfs me, her presence surrounds me, and her
being holds mine. I’ve never felt such a thing, but we cling to one another.
Stuck—the good kind of stuck, of course. The kind of stuck I never want to leave.
When the song ends and the band exits the stage, the crowd disperses. But instead
of going back to our booth, McKenna and I stay in our spot, listening to the music on
the jukebox that now fills the air.
“We should do something.”
She lifts her head, looking into my eyes with a glint of mischievous in her own. “Do

She groans. “You’re using that word again—crazy. We’re in Summerson, Declan.
This is the craziest it gets around here.” She pulls back to look at me.
“Well, then let’s go somewhere else.”
“It’s almost one in the morning. Where are we going to go?”
I unlatch myself from her and pull out my phone, Googling a map of the world.
“Close your eyes and point.”
McKenna tilts her head and the corners of her mouth twitch. “You’re serious? I can’t
just leave. I don’t have the money to go buy a plane ticket. Plus, I have to work
tomorrow, and Declan…” She slaps my arm. “Aren’t you on a case?”
I chuckle. “Aren’t you this all-knowing witch? Let’s blip there and come back. Two

her thumbnail. “But we can Dissipate. But I’ve never done it with another person
I straighten my back. “Now is as good of a time as ever. Let’s do it. Now, point.”
Her honey eyes widen when she sees my seriousness. “Really?”

After a few theatrics, she lands on a spot. Opening one eye, she realizes where her

nothing more than to have her words sung for all the world to hear. But that
changed when she fell in love and married a man whose ambitions became more

“Have you met Dallas yet?”
“Is this a person?”
“He’s awesome. I’m so in love,” she gushed.
“Really?” I asked, intrigued with her limited description.
“Yeah. Too bad he’s gay,” she said. “Well, too bad for me, anyway.”
She pulled me toward a door, three down from my own, and knocked some strange
beat before stepping back. A brown-haired man that was a little too pretty for my
eyes opened the door and moved aside to let us in.
“Hey, Dallas,” she said flirtatiously. “I wanted to introduce you to our new neighbor.”
He looked me up and down, taking in my long flowing skirt and tank, before smiling.
“Yep,” she answered.
“Does 3B have a name?”
“Yeah.” I smiled. Knowing that Dallas was gorgeous and gay took the pressure off
and that made it easy to answer him. “Viola.”
“What brings you to L.A.?” he asked, closing the door behind us and walking to his
couch. I started to follow, but stopped in my tracks when Callie spoke.
“Her husband cheated on her,” she said, and then looked at me. “Crap. That’s one of
those times I should watch my mouth, huh?”
“Yep,” I muttered and then looked at Dallas and shrugged. “What she said.”
“Sorry about that,” he said sweetly. “How long?”
“Eight inches, maybe,” I answered quickly.

In an instant, my world turned upside down
Because of one incident, my life will never be the same
Every day I struggled to breathe
Every day I went through the motions
I felt too much
I was numb
I was drowning
I was lost inside the black
So they made me go there
I was already there, watching from the dark
And then I met him
And then I saw her
He scared me to death
She took my breath away
He was darkness
She was my light
They whispered he can't be touched
She was the only one I could touch
I couldn't be with him, they needed me
I fucking needed her
So I told him I would be his friend
I told her I would be her friend. For now.
But I couldn't resist him for long
She finally realized that she'll always be mine
We were a hot mess
We were the perfect kind of mess
Then reality dawned on me
Then my demons broke loose
I was underwater, trying to break through to the surface
I reached out my hand, trying to pull her to shore
Could he really help me?
Would she accept me, scars and all?
This was us
This was our story
"This book is based on true events and contains sensitive subjects that may be a trigger
to some readers, such as violence, abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder. It also
contains a parent with cancer. It is recommended for ages 18 and up."
Safe. No cheating/OW.
She stood under the night sky, her head tilted up, clutching her jacket close to her
body, protecting herself from the cold.
I couldn’t help noticing how beautiful she was. Before I knew it, I found myself
standing inches from her face – not touching – just standing close enough to feel the
warmth of her body. I hadn’t consciously walked towards her. She was like a
magnet, pulling me in.
I could tell my nearness alarmed her. Her body froze. She lowered her head and
pulled her lower lip roughly between her teeth, worrying it. All I could think about
as I watched her with hungry eyes was how I wanted to pull her abused lip into my
mouth. Fuck. I was losing my mind. She made me feel too much, too soon, and I had
no fucking clue how to deal with all these new emotions.
Was she tense because I flustered her or because I scared her?
I fucking hoped it was the former.
She cleared her throat a few times before she spoke. “I saw the owner looking at us
as we came outside. I really hope that protecting me doesn’t get you thrown out.”
Blinking, I asked, “How do you know Toby?”
She shrugged her shoulders. “I needed a guitar for my song. The guy who signed me
up sent us to ask him.”
Oh, of course, the guitar. I should have realized. She was the only person I had ever
seen take the stage with an instrument, besides a local band. The problem was
focusing on anything else when she was this close. The smell of vanilla took control
of my senses and all I wanted to do was bury my head in the crook of her neck and
breathe her in.
“How do you know him?” she asked.
“I work here.”
“You work here?”
“Yep. I’m a bouncer.”
“Oh. What about the support group? Aren't you working there too?”
“Nah, I’m only a helper there a few times a week. It's not exactly a full time job.”
She nodded as if she was trying to read me. I moved closer. She worried her lip some
more and stepped back. For every backward step she took, I stepped forward, until
she was caged between the brick wall and my body. I placed my hands on the wall
on either side of her head. She sucked in a breath, her body tensing against me. I
didn't mean to invade her personal space, but I needed to be near her, to breathe her
Was it so wrong to want to hold on to the first good thing coming my way, after more
than four excruciating years?
Call me a greedy bastard, but I couldn’t let this woman go.
“I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to say this sooner,” I said. “But your song…watching
you up on stage... it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. You…” I
drew closer, until our noses touched. “You took my breath away.”
“Thank you,” she said so quietly I almost didn’t hear her.
Brushing my lips across her ear, I whispered, “You’re welcome.”
She settled a shaky hand on my chest and gave me a small shove, trying to push me
I didn’t budge.
“You're too close,” she breathed out, her voice quivering.
“Does my nearness bother you?”
Her throat bobbed nervously. “Yes,” she whispered.
I took a step back, giving her room to breathe. I didn't mean to get out of control. I
didn't want to intimidate her. I wanted her on board with me, and I would do
whatever I could to make that happen.
I am twenty-six years old and I live in a small town in Israel.
My family and I were going through some difficult times not too long ago and one
day I was confiding in my best-friend about everything. I didn't know how to deal
with it all. Then she suggested I should write a book about it. I looked at her as if she
had grown another head and dismissed the idea on the spot. But the seed had been
planted, and day after day, little by little, without realizing it - I started writing.
That’s how Underwater was born.
I found writing to be cathartic, healing. Something that helped my mind unwind and
put things in perspective. I discovered a magical world where I traveled between
imagination and reality. Writing became my home and I never wanted to leave.
I love to read, write, listen to music, edit videos, and play the guitar. I am always
looking for the next creative thing. I also like a good movie and a glass of wine.
