#Indielicious Blog Hop--Dreamscape Teaser Alert!

Hi Everyone.  This week thanks to Krystal's request, I'm continuing the scene from last week.  I hope you enjoy it!

Not exactly what I expected him to say.  I stiffen.  He’s in such trouble, yet he seems to have no idea just how pissed I am.  “How the hell would I know?”
His chuckle rumbles through me.  My anxiety withers away to the point where I can actually find out what I did to provoke him.  Then I’ll sucker punch him for scaring the crap out of me.  “Why did you take after me like that?”
When I turn my neck to look at him, he steps away, releasing me.  “I have to push you.  I have to know you will be safe in the Dreamscape.”
I narrow my eyes.  He considered that training?  “You’re really starting to scare me with the mega-drama.”
He doesn’t even flinch.  “It’s not drama.  There is no way for me to train you adequately here.  I wanted—”  He shakes his head.  “—needed you to understand the danger.  If you had been in the Dreamscape and I had been Erobos, you would now be mine.”
Somehow, I believe him.  The realization snakes around my mind a while, creating more and more questions.  I finally decide on one to ask him.  “What would they want me for?”
His eyelids flutter then he stares at his shoes as if he can’t or won’t look at me.  “You are the most gifted clairvoyant I’ve ever seen.  You have not only created your own space within my realm, you have opened up places that have long been closed off.”
I can’t quite decide if he is leaving something out, or if he is afraid to lay too much on me at once.  “What aren’t you telling me?”
His lips twitch into a smirk.  “What makes you ask that question?”
“You’re evading.”
“How do you know that?”
“Body language, mostly.”
Lightning blue eyes meet mine.  I move closer to him to get a better view.  I’ve never seen such emotion in his gaze.  It scares me how much he’s showing me right now, but I can’t make myself stay put.
