Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows!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.
(Read last week's post. Set-up) 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. And she must under no circumstance confront it because it will kill her. And don't get emotional about anything! >.< Pax takes Greta home. Now, her mother wants to discuss the betrothal. She says that Greta's stalker/betrothed (Bain) loves her, and she'll have a wonderful life with him... College, pretty things, all paid for!

Why was she being so calm? Granted, things had tamed in the argument department since Jill’s death but usually our fights reached such piercing heights only dogs could hear us.

“Mom, are you serious? Those things don’t matter to me.” I rubbed my forehead. “Well, college does, but that’s why I’ve worked so hard to make straight As, and if I get the track scholarship I won’t need to worry about paying for college.”

“There are other things to consider.” Her unnatural cool both terrified and pissed me off.

Tune in next week for more angsty spooky goodness!
