Hope you're all doing well. I have to go into work today for a meeting. Suffice to say, I'm not excited about the prospect. Anyhow, on to today's snippet!
In last week's snippet Morgana and Christopher were discussing the meaning of power. I'm continuing from there.

“Is is it ethical to lie to others and trick them to gain something from them, Mr. Bexley?”
Christopher laughed. “Ethics, Miss Wiles? Have you noticed the world we live in? Ethics do not exist. Since the world was created, men have battled, killed, maimed, coerced, and tricked, to obtain their goals, be it women, riches, or power. I am not the first or the last, and I can assure you, I am not the worst you will find.”
“Yes, men have battled, tricked, killed, maimed, coerced, and more, but they have also loved, shared, forgiven, cherished, and more, for honor.”
“No, and good.”

Beauty in the Beast
Light will become shadow. Love will become hate. Good will become evil. The Darkness is here. There will be no escape.
Morgana Wiles has spent her life, alongside her mother, fighting against the arrival of the creature known as The Darkness. Unfortunately, neither of them were able to stop him and now he's here, ready to destroy all that is good in the world. Morgana must face him, but now that the time has come, she finds that things are not as simple. Her mother is gone, self-doubt is creeping in, and her visions are unclear. To make matters worse, a man with evil intent has entered her life and is bent on complicating her mission. Will she be able to resist him in time to fight The Darkness or will she succumb and become that which she despises?
