Another cool & calm Sunday here in Mauritius. In a way, I kinda need the quiet after the excitement and high of last week, when I signed the contract for the new 1NS (of which I featured last week's six). Cannot believe it's already been one week, and guess what? Silly here (aka me!) thought she hadn't signed up for Six Sentence Sunday, so on Friday I scramble out of my way to access the site... only to find out that I had already signed up back on Wednesday morning. Where's my brain going, can anyone tell me?
But today I know where we are heading - back to the Corpus Brides espionage series. We were in Nice last time I posted from Before The Morning; there's been a stint in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, where the Corpus compound where all agents come to heal and regroup between mission is located.
In that Prague scene, Rayne, our super-spy and stealthy assassin who has just realized she's no longer on top of her game, has met with the head of the clandestine Corpus agency. The man has graciously offered her an exit card, on the condition that Rayne aka Kali steps in for some clandestine missions from time to time.
So Rayne is now free, and her first destination is Notting Hill, in London, where Ash Gilfoy lives. Rayne wants a new beginning, but will that be possible? Read on to find out...
She would meet Ash in a few minutes . . . what would be his reaction; would he be happy to see her? The uncertainty gnawed at her insides, and Rayne forced herself to breathe the clean air, light and full of oxygen, not heavy and polluted like other, busier areas of the British capital, which helped her to will her mind clear of all the agonizing doubts that plagued her.
She reached his street and paused on the wide pavement curve, near a black, gas lamppost that looked as if it had stood there for centuries; a woman pushing a pram walked past her and smiled when she met Rayne's gaze.
No, she had nothing to fear.
If only she could pass the memo to her racing heart . . . she'd lived for these moments for the past seventeen years without knowing how much the need to see the man she loved was vital to her sanity—Ash was never far from her mind, but not seeing him, not having him around, made it easier for her to hide him in a secret corner of her heart and stow away the thought of him; but to see him, that had changed everything, made her realize that, without him, she was nothing.
Without him, she was nihilist Kali . . . ....'
