Wow. This week has flown by. I really need to get myself better organized. Hopefully some of the craziness will subside with winter chores done and the like. Anyway, here’s the next installment of Hunting the Hunted. Enjoy!
Facing a Crossroads
I mulled over the choices before me. I could give up and walk away right now. No harm no foul. But walking away meant not having any answers to what happened with my sister, and I wasn’t ready to give that up yet.
Going with them would lead me down a path I’d never be able to walk away from. I recognized that in the way they’d spoken to me about it. I felt ill-prepared to alter my life as much as I imagined taking that path would.
As I weighed my options, something strange possessed me—a reckless, wild emotion rolling through me. I didn’t care what anyone else thought. Kris offered me passage into an exciting but dangerous world. Uncertain if I would survive it, I still didn’t care at that moment and it wasn’t like me.
They recognized the crazy energy possessing me. The way they looked at me reflected the wildness consuming me. It was as if they knew what it was, as if they’d already heard the words hovering on the edge of my lips.
My heart pounding and hands shaking I replied, “Lead on. I’m seeing this through.”
