Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows!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. She's gotta stay calm per Pax. This is too much!

I ran upstairs to my room, slammed the door, switched on my nightstand lamp and flopped into bed. Covering my face with my arms, I tried to steady my breath. It was going to be okay. None of this was really happening. It had to be a dream. Or maybe I’d woken up in a parallel universe or something. When I got up tomorrow, my life would be normal again. It had to be.

Tune in next week for more angsty spooky goodness!

  1. Desperation talks! With a touch of wishful thinking and a side of denial. She's going to have to deal with reality, though, which should be interesting...

  2. Talk about avoidance behavior! Or maybe just denial?

  3. Oh yes, haven't we all had those moments where we hope somehow the current events are a dream! and it never is, sigh. Well done, excellent excerpt!

  4. Denial isn't going to change anything, much as she wishes otherwise. I pity how she feels tomorrow, when she realizes she's stuck with this reality!
