Earth Angel Excerpt

It was silent in his bedroom as he continued to gaze into her eyes. Sarah saw the confusion clear as day in his—and they were amazing. She really didn’t have any answers to any of them, except for maybe the most obvious after experiencing something like this.

“Because I wanted to,” she said.

He was surprised that she answered his unspoken question. Apparently, she had the gift of reading his mind while he was at a loss to do the same with her—and she was human! He was now beginning to believe that Sarah was far more than a mere mortal.

“I-I don’t know why,” she added. “I’ve-I’ve never done anything like this before. I hope you can believe me.”

“I do. Without question,” he assured her.

She quieted as she searched his eyes and must’ve found what she was looking for because she nodded, simultaneously pulling free of his gently hands. “Anyway, what had happened, happened because...I wanted it to happen.”

He saw her suddenly frown as if she wasn’t certain if she gave the correct answer.

“At least, I believe I haven’t ever done this before.” Then she raised her eyes and looked into his. “I...I can’t explain it. All I can tell you is that I...just wanted to.”

“Which makes it that much more invaluable to me in ways you, for the moment, can’t begin to understand, Sarah,” he said quietly.

She frowned in confusion. “How-How do you know my name?”

He smiled, warmly. “I guessed.”

He was being silly, of course. The chances of him guessing her name correctly the first try was next to nil, she thought. “I just need to know...have we met before today?”

He looked strangely at her and it unnerved her. “If we had, I’d like to think you’d remember me.”

Well, he answered that. They’d never met before.

“I don’t even remember how I got here,” she said as she gazed briefly around his tenement. Then another thought hit her and she frowned again as she looked up and searched his eyes. “What...what did you mean by that?”

“Mean by what?”

“That I can’t begin to understand how what has happened is much more valuable to you than I could know?”

“I want to tell you, Sarah. Believe me, I do. I want to tell you everything,” he said, heartfelt. “But for now I’m asking you to trust me when I tell you that what you just made happen was never meant to be. You possess certain ...powers. Above all else, you must know, I honor what you’ve given so unselfishly to me.”

She looked strangely at him. “Powers? That’s just crazy talk.”

“No,” he said so resolutely that she paused. “It’s not.”

She searched his eyes and swallowed. He was being serious! “Oh, then I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree,” she said with a nervous giggle, but she slowly quieted when he didn’t join her. It’s hard to keep something lighthearted when the person you’re talking to is anything but! She looked down and popped her shoulders a few times. “Anyway, you have a right to your opinion if that makes you happy.”

“It does because it’s the truth, and I value truth above all else.”

She raised her head and looked at him a little perturbed. “Well, since we’re being truthful, I hope you don’t think that what had just happened is commonplace with me.”

“I don’t. And I’m never wrong when it comes to judgment of character.”

“Must be nice to be so...confident.”

He slowly smiled. “Arrogant, you mean?”

She cleared her throat, shook back her hair and jutted out her chin. “And you’re wrong about at least one thing.”

“I am?”

“Yeah,” she said, nodding. Then she looked away. “Because it wasn’t totally unselfish.”

His gaze lowered to her shining lips. His thumb gently followed the plump, soft cushion in quiet awe, and he felt her tremble by his touch. “You said as much when you confessed that you did what you did because you wanted it to happen,” he whispered as his gaze seemed glued to her lips. “You—” He paused. Then he raised his gaze to look into her curious and extraordinary eyes. “You’re the first person to make me feel...like a man.”

Yes, it's two days late. I apologize for that. Life got in the way and I needed those extra two days in order to finish formatting the various files.

I'm still busy formatting the PDF files to submit to Excitica and I haven't formatted the paperback files just yet, but Earth Angel is finished and now available for download at Smashwords (in all conceivable formats) and Amazon (Kindle).

I do need to get the paperback ready because I'll be doing a paperback giveaway very soon. I'm giving away 5 paperback copies of Earth Angel with matching bookmarks, with a $50 Amazon Gift Card 1st Prize to participants who not only answer the question I'll be asking - it's about Archangels - but who will sign up and follow me by e-mail.

So brush up on your knowledge of Archangels because I'll have the details of the Earth Angel Giveaway up on this blog very soon!

So, I guess, if ever you needed a good reason to sign up and follow me by e-mail, this should do it, shouldn't it? :-)
