 Today I'm sharing snippet #28 from the Becoming prequel titled Longing (unedited and in Taylor's POV)! Read snippets here: #1#2#3#4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10, #11, #12, #13, #14, #15, #16, #17, #18, #19, #20, #21, #22, #23, #24, #25, #26, #27. Excited for y'all to get to know my dragons better :) 

Longing - Chapter 1 (snippet #28)... 

She shoved the list into the glove compartment and then palmed her phone, staring at the black screen. Just a couple of clicks and she could have an app that would allow her access to Zoe’s musings any time of day. No, she shouldn’t do this. Eventually the posts would stop and Taylor would be empty. Humans died. That was a simple fact. She had already begun to prepare herself for her father, mother and brother’s deaths. Hopefully they would be many, many years from now. Zoe’s—she couldn’t make herself use the word in the same thought with the beauty—on the other hand could be weeks, days, hours away.

Still, it wasn’t as though they were talking in person. This would be a casual thing, talking on Twitter. And, Zoe may not even follow Taylor back. She swiped the phone and downloaded the app. A few more swipes to upload a picture of a knight’s helmet for her avitar—a reminder that she shouldn’t be doing this—another few quick taps to add her profile and screen name. She followed a few random people and organizations so that it wouldn’t look like she was only following Zoe.

This movie was...very psycho. I actually really enjoyed it tho. Interesting look at humanity.

Can't remember if I blogged this yet or not, but if so, it still bears repeating :P
