It's Mother's Day today in Mauritius, and lol, I am not looking to a day of being pampered. Business as usual...though I have a new addition to my shoes collection. The blokes got me an amazing pair of summer clogs with wood sole and heel, and a crocheted lace front. Beautiful!
Anyhow, Sunday snippet... Back to the gala at the Met in New York. Adrasteia 'Adri' Dionysos, the heroine I wrote in the Eternelles series, has met a man who has tilted her world in a way no man has for a long, long time. A supernatural creature, she can figure anyone out with a mere touch...but this bloke remains a mystery to her. And instead of seeing inside his psyche when she takes his hand, Adri sees images of places she's been in throughout her 2,800 years on Earth. (See it in last week's excerpt)
Who is he? This question triggers a memory...
And if she probed deeper, she would also remember that one time when her world had tilted on its axis—the moment on a dark terrace under a moonless sky when a masked man had pulled her into his arms for a dance away from the prying eyes of the ball’s guests, when this complete stranger had kissed her, and seared his presence into her heart. If she were to look the truth in its face, she would acknowledge that she had spent the past thousand years looking for hints of that masked man in the face of every male she encountered.
His kiss and his touch had ruined her for others, and she still had no clue who he was.
“...looking for a scroll and I told him you would be the authority on that,” Susan said.
Adri blinked out of her memories, to realize her hand had limply fallen to her side when Des had released her. A soft tingle remained in her fingertips. Definitely strange, but not enough to suggest that he could be a supernatural creature. This man was as human as one could get.
Not a threat, then. Or was he?
