#8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors: Luna #paranormal #romance #words

Happy Sunday, darlings!

Since I can hardly speak because they tightened my braces this week, I'm going to jump right into the snippet. *grin*

Let's recap: Clare (aka Luna), has met a mysterious, yet hunky, alien who's come to take her back to his home. She believes he's Mikelo, the alien boy she'd met twenty years ago... but he's presented himself as Serrik. In shock, Clare doesn't know how to react. Serrik taunts her and asks her why she is not screaming. In the previous snippet he tells her that her destiny is tied with his people. Clare denies it and  he threatens her. Serrik will do whatever it takes to get Clare back to his world and to Mikelo.

In this snippet, I've skipped a few lines where Clare asks Serrik to stop watching her and he says he can't because he gave his word that he would take her back to Mikelo and otherwise she'd run. Clare says she gave him his word but Serrik disagrees and that more or less brings us to today's snippet...

I hope all having a great weekend!   

XOXO,

She shrugged and as she did the strap of her dress moved and he glimpsed the mark. The sight was like an icy rain storm on a cold winter day. Unwelcome. Painful. The reminder of her mark jarred him back to reality. He placed his fingers below his breast, feeling out his own reminder. His own words from the previous night seemed to echo in his head: I will deliver her unharmed.

"That's where you're wrong, little one, words are naught but that, words, the wind may cause them to take to the sky and vanish as if they never had been. On the other hand, oaths, the ones that mark your body, the ones that draw blood deep from within you, those are the ones that count. Those are the ones that you will forever remember.
