Be My Valentine…Snack

I’ve started a new prelude to Stealing Myself From Shadows and my Tales of the Navel/The Shadow Forest, appearing every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday! It’s called Be My Valentine…Snack.

Once more we return to Christopher’s Point of View, when he finds himself confronting a dangerous and hungry visitor, Damian’s aunt, Duessa Ashelocke. It’s particularly dangerous since she already considers him to be a tasty morsel and has asked him to be her ‘valentine’…

She lowered the rose, so I could see its color. Its petals weren’t red. They were a beautiful ruby purple. Exactly like the flowers which grew in the place where I’d first seen Damian, touched his hand. The very same color as his eyes.

I gritted my teeth, trying to keep anything too rude from escaping my lips.

To be continued on Monday…

  1. I don’t know if this will make sense, but the color of the rose sounds like one of those that’s so vibrant it sort of hurts. I picture them standing out, perhaps leaving everything around them looking washed out in comparison.

    1. Thank you for pointing that out! (smacks self and fixes the typo) Christopher can be testy on the subject of Damian. I’m not sure if it’s occurred to him that Duessa might miss her nephew as well.
