Happy Sunday, lovelies!
Apologies because last week I didn't have a chance to visit all of your wonderful posts. I-m going to aim to do better this week!
In today's snippet, I'm going to leave you with the intrigue about what the demon was laughing about and I'm going to jump a few paragraphs into the story. To give you a bit of context, Max and his colleagues are still immersed in Lust's world and Max has been told to wait outside because he's seen something traumatic.

Turning his back on the commotion, he walked a few feet down the hall and leaned against the wall. Thankful for the cool stone against his blazing flesh, he shut his eyes and focused on his breathing. Little by little, the sounds around him evaporated. The warrior cries of his brothers in arms dimmed. The screeches of the Inferum and the human’s whose dreams had become nightmares, quieted. All of it became replaced by the soothing swoosh of his lungs filling with oxygen, the steady rhythm of his pulse and the pleasant chime of female laughter.
Max’s eyes snapped open and he immediately moved into a fighter’s stance, glancing left and right he searched for the source of the sound. The flames on the brackets flickered and danced with the shadows but not a soul was in sight. Goosebumps rose on his flesh.
“No, please.”~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The attraction between them is immediate, but while Reine can’t let go of his past, Mystique is not willing to return to hers. With darkness constantly closing in, will they find a way to be together? Or, will Reine's behavior destroy their future?
