It’s my turn to post here again and I’ve already done my history post for this month, so I thought I’d share a new excerpt from my novella-length story in the anthology Northern Roses and Southern Belles. And read the newest review! A 4.5 book rating from Long and Short Reviews!
A chill ran down Kyle’s spine. Josie, that’s the name Derek said he’d been calling out last night.
“What reenactment group you with?”
“Oh, no. I’m here on my own. I want to help in whatever way I can.”
Kyle decided to take a different track. “Do you live near Philadelphia?”
“I live in the city, on Chestnut Street.”
He glanced at her ring finger. Empty. “Most ladies in my group come with their husbands or boyfriends.”
“No. As I said, I’m here on my own.”
“Well, can I walk you back to camp? Or are you staying off-site?”
She frowned again. “I stay with the other nurses.”
“Great. Lead on, and I’ll walk you back.”
She smiled, and he reached for her arm. His hand closed on air.
“What the hell?”
She gazed at him. “I can’t stay.”
She dissolved before his eyes.
