Darkness Devours (Dark Angels #3) Magic Steps (The Circle Opens #1)

Three, I counter. We have to use one of those days for travel.

I stood next to her, wishing I were anywhere but there, but at the same time, that I would never have to leave.Chapter 34: Corabelle

Deadly Desire (Riley Jenson Guardian #7)

Gavin was awfully quiet on the rock as we lay beneath the stars. I nudged him finally. Do you want a sandwich? I asked him.The half moon let out so little light that he was only a shadow in the almost complete blackness. Maybe in a minute. His voice sounded off.He didn’t answer, which I took to mean he wasn’t. What is getting you? I asked.

Fate Succumbs (Timber Wolves Trilogy #3)

Just remembering that last day.Remember Angilee, the nurse?

She was good, I managed to get out.

Once things got started, she didn’t leave us for a minute.My feet move slower and slower, head full of a peculiar madness. I want to laugh and cry at the same time. I want to touch every tree, every rock, on the way. I want to know them, to take them into me so they cement out whispers of memory. My head feels full of fuzzy cotton confusion, of wanting to remember being here before, but nothing is definite. It could just be the wanting that makes me feel this way, that makes my feet long to walk back and forth over the same places to make me remember them, if not from before, from now.

I shake my head. Aiden told me she knows I am coming: she’ll wonder what has happened to me…again. I start walking at a proper pace. What could it have been like for her? For my mother. I say the words over and over inside my head, tasting them, but they still don’t feel right, don’t sound right. I’m her daughter – that feels weird, too. I disappeared when I was ten years old. Seven years ago. How do you get through something like that? And then her husband died, a few years after I vanished, when he tried to rescue me. My fault. She might blame me.I swallow — a nervous reaction. She sees it and smiles cruelly.

Left Behind

I should have let them throw you in prison, you know that.She turns away, walking toward her car door. Her statement infuriates me. I follow her, digging my fingernails into my palms, I breathe through my nose.

So you could have him? I blurt. My blood pounds in my ears. I ask myself that question all the time. I say it again. You should have lost the case so you could have him?She freezes, looks at me over her shoulder.

I didn’t expect the truth. It frightens me. I open my mouth — force the words out. I thought you loved your husband.She blows air through her nose. The action reminds me of an agitated horse. Her eyes rove from my shoes and land in disgust on my face.

Before Caleb and I were married, I rarely allowed my parents to be around him out of fear that their opinions would rub off on him, and he’d start looking at me like they did. Most of my other boyfriends hadn’t caught on to their veiled insults and cold parenting. Caleb was smart, he’d see right through them, right through me — and start asking questions. I didn’t want the questions or the eventual resignation it would bring: Leah is a disappointment. She’s not the real deal, just the secondhand daughter.I didn’t like anyone knowing my shit. So, for the two years of our courtship, I herded him in and out of social events with my family with meticulous precision. It was exhausting for the most part — making sure no one said too much, the conversations didn’t dip too deep. After the wedding, that changed. Maybe, I felt more comfortable since I had the commitment, or maybe it was the fact that I had finally told him the truth about where I came from.
