While I'm currently outlining the first season of When the World Ended and We Were Invaded and editing M.I.N.D., the final book in the Mind's Eye trilogy, I thought I'd throw in a little snippet of M.I.N.D. for Teaser Tuesday. The following teaser has not been edited and is subject to change during edits.
Since Borphan and the others agreed to help me when I needed them for battle, I returned to Cassandra’s dreamscape in time for dinner. Appearing outside the cafeteria, I didn’t make it to the entrance before Dom approached me. Again.
“Kearly, I need to talk to you,” he said.
“Yeah, you’ve told me already. What’s up?”
Dom opened his mouth but was interrupted by none other than the wonderful Cassandra. Surprise, surprise. “Dom, Rafe is looking for you. He needs to speak with you, in the library.” Her eyes latched onto mine, and I could’ve sworn the corner of her lips twitched. Was that her way of trying not to smile?
Dom’s shoulders slumped, and his jaw clenched. Rolling his eyes, he responded, “He can wait. I’m busy.”
Cassandra looked like he had slapped her. “Or maybe this”—she motioned back and forth between Dom and me—“can wait. What Rafe has to say might be urgent.”
He stared at me with a look of defeat. “Soon,” he said. “I promise.”
