Just a snippet from Angel I Am Not…. 🙂


I dangled my feet off of the narrow bridge arced over the small pond adjacent Novah’s ranch. I glanced across the water at the muddy bank, where I’d shed my cowboy boots before sulking barefoot across the creaking bridge. The same bank where I’d fought with Els the day before. Maybe she’d run off because of me. If I could just learn to keep my big mouth shut!
I dipped a toe in. The surface was warm but I knew in the darker areas of the water, the sun had not touched the chill just yet. My mom, had always told me, don’t go bare foot until after May 1st or you’d get sick. I guess everyone’s family had some kind of saying or superstition. Mine had many. I could only imagine what kind of demon they’d call their beloved Ayana if I was to turn up on the doorstep now, fanged out.
A large shadow fell across mine as a pair of strong arms wrapped around my waist. Bex sat behind me and let his feet hang over the bridge next to mine. I leaned into him and let the sun soak my face with golden heat. I tried letting go. I really did. I tried letting my worries and fears drift away like one of the many clouds in the azure sky.
I couldn’t. Regardless of how badly I had wanted nothing to do with the Phoenix Elite in the past, Elora was and would always be a Phoenix. If I loved her and wanted her to accept me for what I’d become, I’d have to move past my own selfish prejudices and insecurities and cross time and space to accept and help her.
Bex blew lightly into my ear causing a shiver to ripple my entire body. “Now, now,” I whispered.
“What? Just wanted to see if your heart still beat the same way for me that it did back in Cairo.”
“Of course it does. Why would you think otherwise?”
“Oh, you just seem a little- distant lately.”
“Wouldn’t you be? I haven’t seen my parents in ages. And they’ll hate me when they see what I’ve become. I can never go back, can I?” It came out as more of a statement than question. The finality of it stung. I squinted my eyes shut tightly, forcing the tears to stay away.
“I know how you feel. I haven’t seen mine in what feels likes forever, myself. But I’ve written that life off. Closed that chapter and moved on to a new one. It was the only way for me, serving Isaac as I was. I had no choice. Someday, maybe you can…go back.”
“No,” I interrupted. They’d never accept what I am. And Elora- I won’t see her join that man. I’ll kill him myself.” I turned, my eyes burning. “Not after what he did to you.” I ran my fingers across his chest, knowing what lay beneath- faint, white lines striping his caramel flesh. “It was agony listening to your cries and being completely unable to defend you.”
“I’m sorry you had to hear that.” He kissed my forehead softly.
“No. I’m sorry you had to endure it, because of me.”
“It was worth every drop of blood shed just to be with you now. No more tears sweet Chloe. He’ll pay. Elora is stronger and smarter than you give her credit for. Yes, she is driven by emotion now, but she will make the right decision. You’ll see.”
“I hope so. I sure hope so.” I snuggled back against my Ruhk’s chest and closed my eyes.

Flix Pix Friday!

Well, it’s that time! It’s Flix Pix Friday and how can we helped but be wowed, guys and girls alike, at the action and sexiness of GI Joe; Retaliation? Regardless of the reviews (which have been both bad and good) we can all agree it’s both action packed and appealing to the eye (ladies!). If you’ve not seen it, grab your guy or girl and go out and spoil yourself with this one. I for one, liked it much better than the first and found it well worth it. Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂

Mmm hmm. 🙂

Women To Watch Wednesday!

As I said before, I intend to post rising women stars from all walks of life & I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t include Marloes Coenen! If you like women who can kick butt and look good doing it then Marloes is the girl for you. By looking at the pic below you’d never guess in a million years that she is a top contending woman’s MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter! Marloes was born  March 31, 1981 in Olst, Netherlands. She is the #1-ranked 145-pound female fighter according to the Unified Women’s MMA Rankings. Coenen debuted in mixed martial arts in November 2000 and scored eight consecutive victories, winning the 2000 ReMix World Cup along the way. MARLOES!!!

Lily was born in Guildford, Surrey, England, and is the daughter of English musician Phil Collins, and his second wife, Jill Tavelman. She’s rocked it in movies like The Blindside, Priest, Mirror, Mirror and Abduction. She was also named one of MTV’s “Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011” You can watch her on the big screen again this summer in The City of Bones!

Man Candy Monday!

Who better to kick off Man Candy Monday than the desirable Ryan Reynolds?!!! Salivate ladies, salivate. 🙂

Reynolds was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and would you believe this hottie is of Irish ancestry? Love it!

Flix Pix Friday!

Starring Saoirse Ronan & Max Irons

Starting a little something new…From now on Friday will be known as FLIX PIX FRIDAY! Flix Pix Friday will be where I post pix of upcoming and past movie hotties, both male and female. Mondays will be Man Candy Monday where I will be posting pix of , what else? Man Candy! Wednesdays will be Women To Watch Wednesday, where I will be posting pix of rising women stars from all walks of life. Today’s Flix Pix is one from newly released movie The Host from the book written by author Stephanie Meyer. I think authors need to be given credit where it’s due. Without books there would be few phenomenal movies. This movie just happens to be one that follows the book awesomely! If you haven’t read it, pick up a copy! If you haven’t seen it, well, you know what to do!
