GENRE: Urban Fantasy
After a week of disturing visions, my main character Eva has just been saved from demons by mysterious hottie Ambrose. She has no experience with the paranormal, and she's questioned him about what she just saw him do.
He looked at her with a strange intensity. "You should know what I am. You should know what you are." A vortex of emotion swirled in his eyes - frustration, fascination, even a trace of fear. "How is it you don't know?"
She closed her eyes and shook her head. "Know what? What is it I'm supposed to know?" Her voice quavered.
He put his palm on the side of her face and her eyes opened. "You should know that you are the biggest mystery of all."
Eva's brain was trying to swim through what he'd just said, when suddenly his lips were pressing against hers.
She struggled and shoved back hard on his chest. "What the hell are you doing, Ambrose?" But through her anger she felt something emanating from him, a swirl of magic like she'd felt in her vision.
"I'm trying to show you something," he said, pulling her against him again. His lips found hers and the power washed around them and she didn't pull away.
His magic rushed around her, familiar and normal. It surrounded her, melding with her. Then suddenly a power of her own shimmered through her. It felt so recognizable that she didn't know how she hadn't noticed its absence before. Like a missing limb or lack of vision, it was so vital a part of her she couldn't imagine not having it.
"Do you understand now?" he asked, piercing her with a laser gaze. "You're not normal, Eva. We share that."
