“Excuse the mess.”
I turned and glanced up at him.
“What? You didn’t scrub the kitchen down before you tore it all apart? I’m shocked
Mr. Thorne.”
“Sure, make fun of me. I was simply
being polite.”
I smiled and set the coffee on the
dark granite countertop. “Well we’ve both seen each other’s homes in completely
wrecked states. I think our friendship is strong enough to survive a messy
kitchen. Maybe even an apocalypse.”
“I don’t know. I’ve seen your
kitchen. It looks like a tornado blew through it. I don’t even think zombies
would venture in there.”
“Wow! That hurts.” I reached out to
slap his arm and he grabbed my wrist. Warmth spread through my body and my
chest tightened. He licked his lips and I found the movement incredibly
inviting. The distance between us seemed to shrink. This could not be
happening. As much as I adored Caleb, I could not allow myself to fall for him.
I could see myself tumbling down the very path I swore I would never travel and
liking the fall, but the pain that would surely follow would break me and
likely him as well. Shit. I needed a distraction.
“I brought coffee, as promised.
And…” I pushed the bag over to him.
He released his hold on my wrist,
opened the bag, and peered inside. “Did we not just have a conversation about
muffins and your training schedule yesterday? You know if you keep bringing me
these, I’m going to lose this hard earned physique which makes the ladies

muffin.” I rolled my eyes then turned to face the sink. The cherry wood cabinet
doors were opened, revealing a bucket filled with water, a wrench, a screw
driver, and a broken plastic piece from the pipe was disconnected and lying on
the floor. “I see you’ve made some progress.”
“Think I made it worse.”
“Should have waited until I got
He shrugged. “Probably right. But my
ego can only stand to be shown up by a lady so many times.”
“They have these people. They’re
called plumbers. Professionals. Maybe you should call one.”

    Hi Mai,

    My least favorite part of the publishng process is the waiting. There's a lot of waiting, to hear if a story has been accepted or not, waiting for edits, waiting for cover art, waiting for a release date, waiting…waiting…waiting…..

    The writing process, I really hate when my muse doesn't play nice. When the voices quiet and everything goes still. Especially when I'm working under a deadline. Super killer.

    Hi Judy! Glad you enjoyed! I've always been drawn to the paranormal and urban fantasy genres. Something about stories that take me out of my every day norm.
