It’s Thursday! I wish I could say I have some sort of witty anecdote to share with you. Unfortunately, not enough caffeine has made it to my brain to wake it up. So, I thought I’d share another tidbit from The Veil Path to Destiny~The Veil Book 2. Remember, it’s unedited and subject to change.
(in this scene Coipeail has been searching for Daria’s cousin, Celine, who has been missing. His search has taken him to her design studio where he is able to finally make a mental connection with her.)
Celine’s eyes squinted in suspicion, “Who are you? Where are you? What do you want?” She fired off her questions in rapid succession.
His laughter sent shivers down her spine. “Aren’t you a feisty one?”
“If by feisty you mean I’m not a simpering maid waiting for her knight in shining armor to rescue her, then yes. I am feisty.”
“Ah, but rescue you is what I have been tasked with doing. As for shining armor, I fear I am lacking in that department.”
“Who are you?” She countered, refusing to acknowledge the thinly veiled flirtation.
“Curious as a cat you are.”
“And you’re as slippery as an eel,” she retorted.
“An interesting analogy lass,” he acknowledged. “As much as I enjoy testing my wit against yours, I need to know where you are before our connection is lost.”
“Why? Why are you looking for me in the first place? Who are you?”
Celine could hear his sigh of frustration in her head. “Has anyone ever told you that you are the definition of vexing, lass?”
“Constantly. Now answer my questions.”
