To scream would be to feed his addiction. She refused to give in to her pain as the knife slashed her torso. Blood spilled. The metallic tang invaded her senses as she fought to remain conscious. Beneath her bulging belly, not yet full to term but ripened enough for minimal risk to the life inside, the tip of his knife penetrated her skin, slicing from left to right.
He worked with precision, tracing his mark three times. Each slash a little more gentle than the last, before placing the tip to her navel and ripping down her middle.
Biting down on her lip too hard she tasted blood. The desire to scream no longer her biggest fear as realization finally kicked in. This night would be her last, but the first for her child.
She refused to die at the hands of the ripper. Greed was his weakness. Sacrifice was her power.
Even in the dank darkness of the tunnel the full moon touched her, aiding her attempt to save her unborn child.
Tearing through her womb, he was close to what he sought.
Her time was running out.
Upon the goddess she called and, drawing upon the power of the divine, began her chant. From my mistakes don’t make her suffer. Daughter of the angels his demon hands can’t touch. I give myself to protect her and bind him in his crux. Save her, oh creature of the night, for in your heart you’re pure. I summon you to this task, a step toward your cure.
From his hand she snatched the knife and plunged it in to her heart. This time she did scream—there was power in her agony—her love for the child she would never know cut deeper than the knife could touch.
Crimson Towers will be released early 2019…stay tuned for details…

Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite.
There is nothing more romantic than the first meeting. The undercurrent of attraction no matter the circumstances.
I know many couples whose first meeting was anything but a flirtatious exchange of batted lashes. Fireworks, yes. Explosions of emotion they never expected to slip into a lasting love story. But, their relationships were never short of passion, they agreed to disagree. The one thing they all had in common was that their love for each other overpowered all else.
Many people believe that love at first sight is a myth reserved for romance novels…I don’t know, you tell me. Have you ever fallen in love from the first moment your eyes locked, and continued to fall in love as you lived out your happily ever after together?
Fallen in love with your best friends brother? Reunited with a high school sweetheart after life took you on different paths that crossed again later in life?
I would love to hear your stories and feature you on my blog. So, if you would love to share your story with my readers, head over to the contact page and drop me a line, or feel free to comment below. There is nothing more romantic than a real life love story. I hope to hear yours soon.
