Keeping her emotions in check is so NOT easy... RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday #YAPNR #unicorn

logo WWW Vet 

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows!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 tells her Reed Clarkwell--Greta's shrink--suggested the marriage contract and just stares at her with a clueless gaze...

Holy cow...Was Dr. Creepwell trying to make me miserable on purpose? The thought made my skin crawl.

I crossed my arms and looked at the ground. There, frozen to the area rug, lay my still-life shadow. It reminded me to check my emotions as per Paxton’s orders. I really didn’t want to. I wanted to keep arguing, to scream at Mom until she called off this insane idea.

“No reason, I’m going to bed.”

Tune in next week for more angsty spooky goodness!

  1. Glad she can follow Pax's advice, even in the heat of the moment. An intriguing story going on here, excellent excerpt!

  2. It's definitely troubling that Dr. "Creepwell" would suggest this. At least she has Pax to turn to.

  3. Yup, makes you wonder at the doctor's motivation.

  4. That "frozen shadow"--is it something supernatural, or just still because she is being still?

  5. Now's not the time to be following his advice! I want to know why she calls him Creepwell!

    It is really weird to have your shrink suggest a marriage, though. I'm with her on that.

  6. Lol @ creepwell.

    She is such a teenager, wanting to argue with mom. Great job :)
