Just a little apology for missing last week. I had a busy week at work, and I just didn’t get time to get this ready for you guys. Sorry.
This is my fifteenth week on this blog hop. I’m continuing this week with an excerpt from my current romance WIP, Resistant. Resistant is a romance set in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. This scene is short and ends the chapter in which my last few posts took place.
After we ate, I helped clean up, then lay down in my new spot to read a book while he went over the next day’s schedule. I’d been gradually reading through all of Jonathan Maberry’s zombie novels. I was currently on book two of his young adult Benny Imura series. A time or two Daniel tried to start a conversation, but his starters and my answers never led to a real conversation.
I only managed to read one chapter, before giving up and turning away from him to get comfortable.
“Sahara?” he whispered, crawling into the bed with me. He didn’t get close enough to touch me, but I could feel heat radiating off his body. I wanted desperately to cuddle up next to him, but I didn’t.
“Yeah,” I answered.
“Was I wrong to do this?”
I wanted to say yes. I wanted to scream in frustration. Instead, I rolled to face him and said, “No.” Because it was true. He might not have done this for the reason I wanted him to, but he had done it, and I actually like sleeping next to him.
“Then, are you mad at me for something else?”
“No. I’m just tired and on edge. People have been treating me weird all day. Like I’m about to break. Or like I’m a rabid dog that has bitten their child.”
He reached up, stroked the side of my face, and said he was sorry.
“It’s not your fault. I’m a big girl. In a week or so, it will all blow over. I hope.”
He didn’t say anything to this. He did lean over, kiss my forehead, and whisper, “Goodnight.”
“Night,” I said back then yawned.
I was asleep in minutes.
The next morning I woke wrapped in his arms. For the first minutes after I woke, I took advantage of this and let myself feeling him surrounding me. I was sure I must have had another nightmare, though I don’t remember dreaming, but the fact that he was holding me proved it. He breathed slowly, and his breathe tickled the back of my neck. The feel of it made me warm and liquidy inside.
