Welcome to another Wednesday and another WIPpet! Today you're getting another snippet from Nephil's Destiny, which is the final book in my The Chosen Chronicles Series. In this excerpt, it is about ten years after the scene from last week, so Amaya and Deacon are adults now.
For those of you new to WIPpets, it is a snippet of your Work In Progress. The only rule is that it has to be associated with the date somehow. For example, today is 8-13-2014. You are getting 20 lines for the first two digits of the year. If you want to join us for a WIPpet, go here and post your link. Make sure to read everyone else's contributions and don't forget to comment on as many as you can. The more comments you leave, the more you'll get in return! Enjoy!
Amaya's eyes drifted shut in anticipation of the kiss. Deacon released her hand and slid his down to her hip and around her waist, drawing her closer to himself. Her lips tingled as she waited anxiously for his to make contact and her heart pounded so loudly that she was afraid he could hear it. Just before he made contact with her, someone clearing their throat from behind them made them both freeze.
"Sorry to interrupt." Dev stuffed his hands in his pockets and looked sheepish.
Deacon didn't release Amaya. He turned his head and looked over his shoulder. "Then don't."
Dev chuckled. "Sorry, dude. Zeke sent me to get Amaya. You'll have time to do whatever you were going to do after you leave. I'm not going to be the one to piss off the lady who just gave birth."
Deacon glared at his friend. "I want to do it now, not later. Go away."
Amaya laughed and ducked under Deacon's arm. "Pack some canned food for us, would ya?"
Dev waited to speak until Amaya had disappeared up the stairs. "Want to talk about that?"
"It's none of your business."
"No, it's not. Want to talk about it anyway?"
Deacon opened the pantry and starting yanking out cans at random. "I was going to kiss her. You interrupted. End of story."
"We both know that's not what I meant. Dude, you and Amaya? When did that start?"
"Eight years ago."
