Almost didn’t make it today! But here it is. Another excerpt from Heart Song:
I almost lost my footing and found myself wrapped in his arms with the side of his blade to my throat and his breathing in my ears. I closed my eyes pushing the intensity of my body’s reaction to the back of my mind.
“You didn’t respond accordingly,” he breathed.
I peeked at him from the corner of my eyes, “Nor were you anticipating.” I nodded with my head towards where I held my weapon. He gulped realizing it was a stagnant match.
