Excerpt.....from chapter 2


Written on Thursday, March 20, 2008 by haleigh

Cole turned to her. “This next part is one of those if-I-tell-you-I have-to-kill-you things.”

“Oh crap. You are a serial killer.”

The corner of his suddenly serious mouth tilted up. “No. But this information doesn’t leave this room. Understand?”

The automatic reply was ‘off the record.’ She stopped herself just in time. “Got it.”

He limped over to the stove and opened it. Curious, she followed and leaned over his shoulder. The bottom of the stove popped out in his hands, revealing a keypad and several other electronic components.

“Holy--” The words died on her lips as he ran his thumb over a metal thing and punched a series of numbers into the keypad. A series of metallic groans and loud clicks filled the room. Shae swung around, looking for the source. The middle of the floor - the exact size covered by a scruffy rug - rose four feet into the air, revealing a complex series of levers and metal arms.

Cole ducked into the opening and started down a flight of stairs. Even from where she stood, she could see that the lower portion of the little shack was a technological feat.

“Oh my god, you’re James Bond.”

He turned on the third step down and grinned at her. “I prefer the Batman analogy myself, but I’ll take whatever gets you naked faster.”

    I don't care how you do it, but you'd better write fast because i've just read the excerpt and the summary and it's s great so I want to see more. Preferably on a bookshelf. Mine. Mmm did I sound a bit bossy? Good.
    I knew you were on some kind of word race with QC but didn't know much about it. Now that I know what it's all about I hope everything will go as planned. To make sure it does i'll pop in once in a while for some ass kicking...sorry I meant sweet nudging. ;-P

    Hi Stef! Feel free to kick ass (I mean, nudge) as much as you want. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can do this well enough to make it to a book shelf. I wouldn't mind seeing it on mine either! LOL
