Celta Thursday: Heart Fortune: Last Bit of Cut Scene in Chapter 1
"You weren't cataloguing ancient Earthan artifacts in the basement of the PublicLibrary? I always wondered," Camellia said.
Glyssa needed something to shield her heart, even with her best friends. She picked up a gold accent pillow and squashed it to her. "No, I was having a wild affair with a guy I'd just met."
"You!" Tiana gasped.
Her friends' eyes widened gratifyingly. Glyssa put the pillow down and settled back on the couch, letting her mouth curve in sly smile. She wouldn't close her eyes in satisfaction because scenes of sexual abandon and a gorgeous man would paint her inner lids. "Yes, me."
"Was it incredible?" Camellia asked.
"Details!" Tiana insisted.
"It was incredible. I met him at a social club. He'd just arrived in town from the south and was heading out somewhere else after the holiday. We were attracted, we had a lot of sex." Almost an understatement.
"Then after the weekend you realized he was your HeartMate," Tiana said.
All right, Glyssa needed the pillow again, grabbed it and hugged it. "Yes."
"He didn't?" Camellia's brows were down again.
"I don't believe he did," Glyssa said. "I'm sure he still hasn't figured that out." A trace of acerbic bitterness there for the blockheaded man, and she'd really have to watch that.
"Oh, my Lady and Lord," Camellia said. "And you don't even know his surname, or his Family or anything."
"Not much," Glyssa admitted.
"Hmm," Tiana said.
"Your Family isn't going to want you at the excavation of Lugh's Spear. It can be dangerous," Tiana said.
Glyssa thought that was another understatement about her Family. There'd be problems. She lifted her chin. "I'm going."
And Heart Fortune will be out next Tuesday!
