Ready for more? Okay, here's a sneak peak of my story, Life Ever After...
I look at Stephen. His beard is growing through, and his hair is a mess. His face is tired and worn down with rings of anguish under his eyes, like only someone who has lost too much would have.
“Who did you lose?” I ask.
He closes his eyes for a second, but he doesn’t reply and I know that I’ve struck a nerve in him.
“Was it your wife?”
His nostrils flare, but before I can say anything else, a little voice enquires behind him.
“Daddy? Can we eat now? I’m hungry.”
Stephen’s jaw grinds furiously before he responds. “In a minute, Jack. I’ll be there in a minute, son.”
My shoulders slump as Ben comes back. “You okay?” He asks.
“Yes.”I reply quietly. “Give him the food.”
Stephen’s expression doesn’t change, but something in his eyes recognises my kindness. He keeps his gun level with me, but I see his finger lift off the trigger.
In-case you wanted a little more back story on Stephen and his son, here's the link to a short flash fiction piece I did for Books of the Dead Press recently. Go have a read, and leave a comment letting me know what you think.
Ready for more? Well keep your eyes peeled and watch this space, because I'll be sharing with you the trailer for Life Ever After at the end of this week! Fusion releases at the end of the month, and remember it will be FREE in eBook! Yep, you heard me, FREE. So add it to your Goodreads bookshelf, watch my Facebook page and get ready to download...
