DINNER WITH THE PARENTS

Grinning, he lifted me off the chair, took my place and dropped a kiss on my bare neck. “You know I’m not going to focus on anything your parents say because I’ll be busy imagining taking this,” he pushed the strap off my shoulder and planted a kiss, “off.”

“Sure you will.” I put the lip gloss down and turned to look into his eyes. “Let’s go and choose what you’re going to wear. It is after five already you know.”

“The dinner is at seven. You just want me to take my shirt off, don’t you?”

“That too.”

He laughed and stood, effortlessly carrying me, then he walked through the portal and into his outrageously large bedroom, where he deposited me unceremoniously on his bed.

“What do we start with?”

“The shirt. And no hyper speed,” I added.

He laughed. “So basically I’m stripping for you, Cora-mio?”

“If that’s what you want to call it.”

His grin turned naughty and what followed was the best modeling session I’d ever seen a guy pull. That soon turned into a make out session. I wasn’t ready to leave when Mom’s voice reached me through the still open portal.

I planted a quick kiss on Echo’s lips and scrambled off the bed, my hand going to my hair. I caught my reflection in his closet mirror and groaned. My hair was mussed, my dress wrinkled, and my makeup— “Yikes.”

“You’re perfect,” he said, leaning back against the pillows, a smug smile curling his lips.
Making a face, I finger combed my hair and ran to my bedroom. I could feel him watching me. He’d moved the portal so we could see my bedroom door from his bed.


“You’re not wearing that,” I protested when I opened my door and took one look at Mom. I hated her in yellow. It made her skin sallow and the design made her look boxy.

Mom laughed and planted a hand on her hip. “I happen to like this dress.”

“I think she looks rather fetching in it,” Echo said from behind me.

“Come on, Mom. I’ll choose something for you. Then I’ll fix your hair and make-up,” I added. I stuck out my tongue at Echo before closing the door. I was surprised he didn’t walk through it. On the other hand, he had to drive from Torin’s, where he planned to borrow a car.

“You do know I used to dress myself before you were born. Then you turned five and discovered make-up and mirror, and hair products, and I knew I was in for a rough ride.”

“Hey, I haven’t been a difficult daughter,” I protested.

She hugged me. “No, sweetheart. But your dad and I had gray hair early for a reason.”

Twenty minutes later, I stood beside Mom and Dad, and watched Echo step out of an SUV. Andris’ was dark green. This one was black. Even the windows were tinted.

Echo looked amazing in his black casual pants, long sleeved light-gray t-shirt, and dark gray blazer. His chin was shaven. The gloves, chains, and rings were gone. The surprises were Mom’s favorite flowers—the stargazer lilies, clutched in his hand, and a bottle of Dad’s special drink—Glenfiddich scotch, produced where my grandparents grew up in Scotland.

“Mom, this is Echo Mairid,” I said. “Echo, my parents.”


To be continued... Feed Your Fiction Addiction...Feb 3rd


One lost love.

One lost best friend.

One hot soul reaper.

Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life.

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing. The connection defies logic. It doesn’t help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more alive than she’s ever felt before. But more important, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking soul reaper. A Grimnir. The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again.
