In all the time I’d been working with Rachel Caine, I couldn’t remember her in anything less than a pleasant mood. So, when I sat in the cushioned bench seat across from her and saw her chocolate-colored brow all furrowed, and the frown upon her lips, it set me back.
“Something wrong?” I asked.
Her normally glimmering brown eyes penetrated deep into me, and her voice was curt, furthering the confusion on my part. “You could say that.”
It didn’t take much on my part to make a connection. “You called me here to fix it, I’m guessing.”
If you enjoyed this, since "Hidden From View" is not yet available to read in full, be sure to check out Rachel Caine's first appearance in "Conventional Wisdom", one of the stories from my Dead or Alive collection!
Ooh, I wonder what's happened.ReplyDelete
Hopefully I find out by the end of the story as well...hee hee. ;-)ReplyDelete
It must be something serious to worry her like that. I hope he comes through for her! Nice little snippet!ReplyDelete
I love a good problem that furrows a brow!ReplyDelete
Rachel sounds interesting adn I'm expecting Adventure!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, everyone! If the story sticks to the current script, it should definitely be an interesting and exciting problem!ReplyDelete
Sounds good. Another adventure unfolds...cannot wait!ReplyDelete
I wonder what she wants him to "fix"?ReplyDelete
I guess I can give it away (since it may change anyway), but she had something a bit...shall we say "personal" stolen from her, and she wants it back at any cost.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by everyone!
Very intriguing. I like where you're going with this. :o)ReplyDelete
Thanks! I hit a stumbling block while overseas, and since then, nothing seems to work for the rest of the story...but here's hoping...... :-)ReplyDelete
Fix it, or really mess it up?ReplyDelete
With Aston, anything is possible...ReplyDelete
I loved the snippet. Rachel Caine sounds exactly like me - cheerful, positive and always needing help from someone. I'm excited to see how much help he will be. Loved the set up. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I've heard through the grapevine (and those who've seen previous short story snippets already know the secret) that some of my stories from the anthology are actually available for free if you visit my website...ReplyDelete
If you like Rachel, you might even like her more if you read her previous story... ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!
Sounds like the beginning of an adventure.ReplyDelete
I'd like to think so. Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Must be damn serious then.ReplyDelete
It is to her, that's for sure!ReplyDelete
