Sample Sunday is a weekly posting from my pre-published work in progress Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel. Each week I will post approximately 100 – 150 words from this installment of the series. Please visit the ToiBox to read samples of my other works.
Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel chapter 5
In the roomy bed she’d been provided, Mira quickly became relaxed and was very comfortable. The sheets were soft and cool and the mattress was just the right firmness. After a few hours of blissful rest and sleep, a strange sound, like wings flapping or flags blowing in the wind, woke Mira from her slumber. The sound was coming from outside, so she ran down the hall to the indoor/outdoor room to gain access to the deck. There she saw what looked like an enormous white bird; the most regal she’d ever seen. It looked to be the size of a man with wings white like snow. It flapped its wings over the apple orchard as it ascended up into the sky. It was the most beautiful thing Mira had ever seen, or maybe imagined.
