Excerpt from Wild Enchantment

I sent ‘Wild Enchantment’, the second book in the Eden’s Dragon series, to my editor. Every time I turn over a manuscript to my editor, I feel like I’m turning in a term paper. At 62, I still have High School related anxieties.

Here’s the WIP (work in progress):

Freedom! Celine filled her lungs with the stale air in the living room where she’d materialized. For one precious day each year she escaped her imprisonment. She dragged a thin-material throw blanket off a nearby chair, wrapping it around her naked body. Soon she’d release her dragon and take to the sky.

Something cold and wet touched her foot. When she looked down, a cat had situated himself across one foot and licked the other. This was the orange tabby the male owner of the house had issues with. She couldn’t understand his contempt for the animal. He was adorable.

“Well, hello there,” Celine said as she picked up the tabby. “Should we go into the kitchen and get you a treat?”

Celine should have left the house and commenced her yearly ritual since she had only a precious twenty-four hours before she transformed back into a ceramic dragon figurine.

She searched the kitchen for a cat treat. There wasn’t a package with a photo of a satisfied cat plastered to the front visible in the ambient light created by multiple appliances. Before she had a chance to begin opening cabinets, the little feline jumped onto the counter and shoved a plastic canister with his paw. What a smart little guy!

After pouring a small amount into her palm, she presented the cat with his treats. He licked her hand between consuming pieces of kibble resembling fish. This was the most she’d interacted with anyone or anything for centuries. She ran her free hand down his long back. His orange fur felt soft to the touch, not coarse.

“You’re a good kitty,” she said. “If you only knew the terrible things Chase thinks about you.”

“Like what?” a female voice from behind her asked.

Celine let out of muted scream and the remaining kibble in her hand went flying, landing across the kitchen floor. The cat jumped off the counter and went after his reward.

No matter what I do, I cannot bring down Camille’s fever. She drank the bone broth soup I prepared, but there has been no change. I will go into town tomorrow to buy more turmeric.

Camille continues to cry out for the boy vampire. I can no longer dismiss the fantasy she has created in her mind. Her obsession with him seems to be the only thing keeping her alive. Each evening I search for the pale boy Camille described. Every time I leave the house, I fear upon my return, Camille passed in my absence. But I must find the boy.

My child wears the pallor of death. Her breathing shallow, not providing life affirming air. The doctor has bled her for the last time.

Camille cried out for a withered yellow rose. When I handed her the dead flower, I noted dried blood on a thorn. She told me it was his blood. Camille purposely punctured her skin to allow her blood to be interwoven with his. For the first time she muttered his name. They were her last words. Francois Laurent.

I buried my daughter this morning. It seemed fitting the rose be buried with her. I kept the thorn that contained both their bloods. If they could not be together in this life, I’ll find a way to bring them together in a future one.
