I'm getting so excited for my upcomind blog tour that I almost forgot about Teaser Tuesday. Hold in your gasps. Almost is the key word here. So here you go. I hope this quenches a little bit of your thirst for Elemental Enmity :)
My whole body convulsed from another bout of nausea. Heath knelt by me and held my shoulders up. “I’m sorry I had to put you through that," he said, "but there is a possibility the Guard could sense you while you are in the tunnels. We are only strong enough to fortify a few rooms as it is.”
My mind refused to think about what he’d just said. I was so tired of running, so tired of hiding. That’s all I had done since Mom left me with Aunt Grace.
I shook my head. For once in my life, I was grateful for the bit of normal I’d had with my makeshift family. Right now I would have traded all my power for a chance at an uncomplicated life.
Heath grunted and stood up, pulling me up with him. “You were bored out of your mind in that hick town. Stop making things worse than they already are.”
I wiped my mouth, gazing up at him. “How is any of this my fault?”
His hand shot out to caress my cheek. “It’s not.” He shook his head. “I just wanted to have you longer than this. I can’t stand the thought of you going back to him.”
I blanched, my eyes widening. “I’m not! What the heck is going on, Heath?”
