Weekend Writing Warriors: But why me? RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday #Unicorns #YA



Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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 (last week)... Greta runs away from her surprise engagement partthrough the woodsPax saves her from a shadow demon. Oh, and he's a unicorn! 
Back at Pax's cabin, Greta and Pax talk. He tells her that he'll do everything he can to protect her...The start to Chapter 4: Blood

I got that he wanted to keep me safe. Obviously. It was his job. But why me? What did any of this have to do with me?

“I don’t understand. If your blood is so important to the shadow demon, why am I the one who’s marked?” Carefully, I pulled my hand from his, walked to the couch and perched on the edge.


Tune in next week to find out why Greta needs protecting!

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

  5. I'd like to know why too. I guess the demon wants her for more reasons than she'd like to imagine. Good 8!
