Fun Friday Snippet: When I see your Face
“Madam, if you please, here’s your buffet waiting for you. Choice left-overs from here and there and everywhere, specially prepared for hard working, starving gardeners. Please allow me to draw back your chair for you, madam. Oh, we don’t have chairs. Please feel free to sit down on this rather coarse and much too small sheet in the grass and start gobbling before I steal all the food because I’m positively famished.”
Michael looked so comical and the French accent that accompanied his words was so hilariously exaggerated that she found herself giggling like a schoolgirl, her hand over her mouth. When had she laughed or giggled the last time?
For a second, there was an unreadable expression on his face when he looked right at her laughing, defenseless face. What was it in his eyes, darkening them to a deep-sea blue with slate grey dots and burning into her? Desire? Her stomach was much too agitated for her mind to work properly, so she managed to tear her gaze from his and plonked down onto the sheet gracelessly.
Fun Friday Snippet: Playing with Fire
Before she knew it, Felicia wasn’t screaming, but laughing breathlessly.
The long drop and sudden stop had cranked up the adrenaline, almost like the fire magic did, but without any effort or any loss of energy or the need to exercise control.
In slow motion, she felt them extend the rope and lower her onto the grass where her legs gave way, and the world felt oddly upside down.
She barely realized what was happening around her, her breath escaping in a gasp when Joshua ran to her and engulfed her in a tight hug, lifting her feet off the ground to spin her around.
And in that moment, laughing again and feeling deliciously dizzy, she realized one thing.
She loved him.
