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 10
Laid back in the cool night air, on the shaking branch of a tall tree, Giovanni woke up somewhat rested. He’d gotten about three hours of peaceful sleep. It was the most sleep he’d gotten in months. He looked up and around, and then stared at the little girl’s house. All was quiet. Giovanni quickly realized that he’d stayed there way too long. He could sense that the sun would be rising soon. He knew he’d better head home before it was too late. He didn’t want to be stuck out in broad daylight wearing just his pajama pants.
He began to fly home when he felt something urging, almost pulling, him to detour. Giovanni was vexed. He knew he would have to find cover soon, but he couldn’t shake the feeling of needing to go somewhere else. He headed north and followed his urge.
