Wherein a unicorn tells a witch she's being fed upon by a demon. RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #WeWriWa #8Sunday #YAPNR

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows!

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 the shadow has fed on her emotions. And that it's definitely someone she knows. Her first thought is her mom (yikes!), but...

She was forcing this engagement on me.

My thoughts swam in a sea of confusion.

Tune in next week for more angsty spooky goodness!
