Here’s Day 18 of Fantasy Indies April: Snippet – Sweet Scene
Featuring Enduring The Flames
A sudden lurch pulled me away from my recurrent, blurry and incoherent dream. My eyes shot open and my heart rate tripled from the jolt as my center of balance shifted for an instant. With a quick look down, I realized I was attached to Vlad’s arm.
While my head was still using his shoulder as a pillow up until I was roused from my sleep, I was, to my utter embarrassment, no longer holding his hand. My whole body was angled toward him with both of my legs curled up on the seat.
The vampire’s muscled arm was clutched against my chest like it was a warm teddy bear disguised as a seat belt with his hand resting so high on my outer thigh it was almost on my hip. As I realized the lurch was the plane touching down on the tarmac, it occurred to me that he was my seat belt — keeping me from landing in a heap on the plane’s shiny floor.
