This is an unfinished old story of mine that I had originally posted on Wattpad a few years back, before I went on the journey of self-publishing. It’s not in my future plans to finish as it needs a major overhaul, but who knows what will happen. There are 4 chapters plus the prologue so I’ll post one by one.
I stood there atop the thirty-two storey building, overlooking the city below. It was a place I would call home—if only for a little while. I took a deep breath (although that wasn’t quite necessary anymore) and closed my eyes as I concentrated on the source of the Light that I felt was situated in the city streets of Toronto.
I focused my energy on the Light, blocking out the sounds of sirens blaring, horns honking and the engines of cars all around. Soon everything started to fade away: the arguing of two co-workers below at the bar, the sounds of passionate love-making in the building across the street, the music of Michael Jackson playing within the club.
I had reached a point of complete and utter stillness.
As I closed my eyes tighter, I focused solely on drawing in the energy that I was looking for. At first there was nothing and I began to feel frustrated—although Guardians weren’t supposed to feel frustrated. We weren’t supposed to feel anything, as a matter of fact. But that was beside the point. Anyways, I was feeling what would be described as “frustration” when I finally noticed it.
I smelled chocolate.
It was the scent of rich, smooth cocoa that filled my nostrils to a point that my mouth began to water and I could almost taste it. It had been awhile since I had tasted chocolate. I tried to focus on my other senses (it was really quite difficult with the chocolate and all) and began to hear the chatter of voices, followed by a vision of people. Everything was hazy at first but the first thing that I could distinctly see was the pulsating rhythm of Light coming from one person in particular. It glowed brightly, its ray of beauty within the essence of the being, as if winking back at me. The being was sitting off to the side, alone.
It was almost as if they were waiting for someone.
Snapping out of the vision, I opened my eyes as a sense of calm passed over me. Placing sunglasses over my eyes, I smiled to myself, pleased.
My mission had finally started.
On another note, I’m still looking for bloggers interested in participating in my cover reveal for Sage. You can check out the synopsis on Goodreads and sign up here. There will be giveaways and I will be offering one of my ebooks for free that I’d like to share with everyone.
My bookmark giveaway is still happening on Rafflecopter. Enter for a chance to win two bookmarks from my novella, THOSE FOUR LETTER WORDS and REAP.
Until next time,
