Weekend Writing Warriors: He gave it to her. Now she has questions... RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday

Thank you for stopping by. I'm excited to participate with such a fantastic group of writers! Check out other warriors here!

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!! Squee!! 

Follow Greta Shore (a 17-year-old, black-haired wiccan beauty) and Paxton "Pax" Craig (an 18-year-old, blond-haired college student with a dark secret) as they discover the fate of their forbidden love.
Set-up... Greta runs away from her surprise engagement party through the woods. Pax saves her from a shadow demon. Oh, and he's a unicorn! 
Back at Pax's cabin in the woods, he asks her how she wants it. Er, um? ...coffee. That's all?! She's kinda disappointed :P

Trailing behind, I followed him into the brightly lit area and leaned against the green countertop while he poured our coffee, added cream to mine and left his black.

He handed a mug to me. “I only drink caffeinated.”

“No big. With everything going on, I doubt I could sleep tonight anyway.”

Paxton walked to the round wooden table in the middle of the kitchen and pulled out a chair for me before he plopped into the one next to mine.

I wrapped both hands around my coffee mug and let the warmth radiate through my body. “Why were you in the woods tonight?”

Tune in next week as Greta and Pax get down to business!!

Thanks again for stopping by! Your support and feedback is greatly appreciated!
