Excerpt: I stand and stare at her. Again, the ability to form words seems to escape me as I drown in her green eyes. Slowly and with extreme caution, Phoenix stretches her arm out and runs her fingers along my chest, just over my tattoo. I stiffen, and her fingers pull back. “Please don’t,” I whisper. “No one has ever seen it.” Part of me wants to dive off this dock, swim to the bank, and drive away so fast I make her head spin. Another part of me wants to tell her the whole story.

Excerpt: Walking hand and hand upstairs, I led her to bed. I had so many questions for her, but I couldn't seem to get them past the knot in my throat. I know I joked about not taking her home, but once tomorrow comes, will she want to move back to her apartment? How will I feel about her not being with me at night? Sensing my uncertainty, she began to lead me instead. Without words from either of us, she laid me down and claimed me. And, for once in my life, I wasn't completely alone.

Could Sicily be who he needs to work through his fear of abandonment? Fall 2015

Excerpt: Finn raised his eyes to mine, and I was stunned to see tears. “Sicily, I never expected to be in this situation. I especially never thought that only after knowing someone a few months I could love them, much less trust them. But, I do.” A tear escaped his eye, but he didn’t wipe at it. “You are my world. I want you with me when I wake up and when I fall asleep. You are the first person I want to talk to each day. If I have a problem, I want to discuss it with you. I’ve never had this with anyone. You know this.” I was nodding like crazy as my own tears were flowing. “Sicily Belice Clark, would you do me the great honor of being my wife?”

Excerpt: The sight before me was terrifying. “Sicily!” I yelled as I tried to see her in the wreckage. There were pieces of metal as far as I could see. The fuselage had been completely ripped apart. The nose and cockpit area lie upside down about forty yards to my left. The main part of the plane was torn in so many pieces that there were not any clear sections left. The rear of the plane still contained part of the tail. It was stuck at the top of two large trees. Between the nose and the tail and everywhere around the area, I could see seats, insulation, luggage, food …, and bodies. There were so many bodies. Oh God! No one was moving.

Excerpt:    
 
 
    I nod emphatically while Phoenix sings, but my eyes are fixed on Jo. She bangs away on her drums. There is something ridiculously hot about a female drummer. Maybe, it’s the stamina it takes to play a full set. Maybe, it’s the way those stray hairs stick to her damp face. Maybe, it’s the sweat that trickles down her throat. Oh, her throat. It’s long and lean and … I swallow. Get it together, man.
