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 7
Feeling as though she was immersed in a pool of water, Mira struggled to hear Giovanni’s thunderously soothing voice, call out her name from beyond. “Mira, wake up; please, Mira.” Giovanni found her asleep and shivering in the woods clinging to the trunk of a tree. He picked her up and carried her back to the house. Her body was cold from being out in the fall air. There were a few fallen leaves in her hair from sitting under the tree, and despite the cold, her pulse was racing from dreaming so hard.
Finally, they reached the steps of the porch and Giovanni sat Mira down on the top step. He briefly examined her for cuts and bruises, and then held her body to warm her and send her feelings of comfort. She was still a little cold from sitting in the shade of the tree; Giovanni continued to hold her close.
