Because I'm ADD

I know I have about fifty other projects I should be working on, especially The Sector, which is currently in the editing stages. Tonight I should be editing chapter 4. Of 32. I've been doing one chapter a night. It's pretty intense and can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours. Yikes! This is going to take forever! Hopefully I can get some extra chapters done on the weekends so this book can come out SOON! Well, soon-ish. I still have to get a cover. *sigh*

*HINT HINT* Fabulous little brother of mine who is my cover artist, if you are reading this: PLEASE HURRY! I need my cover! hahahaha :)

Anyway, like I was saying: I have about 50 projects floating around in my brain fighting for space. So, naturally, another project decided to rear its little head and implant an idea that I just can't shake. I've been thinking about it for almost a week and I can't let it go. In fact, I'm half tempted to leave my other projects in favor of this one, but there's a certain person who shall remain nameless (Kim) that would absolutely kill me if I didn't finish the Sector series first.

So because I can't let it go and I am dying from not having anything from the Sector to share, here is a snippet from my newest project:

I sank to the floor, sliding my back down along the wall. I was tired, and the guilty feeling in my gut weighed heavily on me.

"You okay?" he asked, walking up to me.

I shook my head. I tried to hide my feelings, but he had a sixth sense when it came to me. he slid down the wall until he was sitting beside me on the floor.

"What's wrong?"

I shook my head again and reached out for his hand, taking it in mine and resting them on the floor between us.

"Nothing. Don't worry about it," I lied. "Where've you been staying?"

"They let me back into the house," he smiled.


I tried to be happy for him, and I smiled, but it wasn't genuine.

"What's wrong?"


Again with the lies. I was on a roll. The knot in my stomach tightened.

"Come on, you can tell me."

"I just really missed you is all."

I told a half-truth. It was better than the full truth at least.

He didn't say anything at first, just sat there in silence. I sighed and leaned my head on his shoulder.

"I missed you too," he whispered in my ear as he rested his cheek on the top of my head. "So much it hurt."

He spun the diamond ring on my finger around and around. I looked down at it and prayed the guilt I felt didn't show on my face.

And then Josh walked over to us. I wanted to crawl under a rock and hide. I wanted to be teleported out of there. I didn't want to confront him. Not there, not now. Not ever.

So, there you have it! Hope you enjoyed! Feel free to leave a comment with your guess as to what happens! (I know some of you are going to tell me I'm evil for leaving you hanging, but guess what? I like being evil. bwahahahahaha!) ;)
