Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to my SSS! For December and January, I'm highlighting one of my Zodiac books, Capricorn: Forgotten Faces. This comes very soon after last week's six, with Caleb and Leandro in bed about to have sex. Caleb has seen the love in Leandro's face and been stunned into silence.

...All of a sudden, I yearned to take those emotions blazing in his eyes and wrap them around my lifeless heart. He could resuscitate it. I knew he could. The prospect both thrilled and terrified me.

Though my silence extended longer than I would have normally allowed it, Leandro didn’t push me to speak. He waited for me to catch up to where he’d been for centuries, and I knew, deep inside, he’d wait even longer if that was what it took.


To check out all the other six sentence contributions, head over to the official website.
