I have been sharing from my WIP, Book 2 of my Illuminati series, The Tree of Life. Just so I don't leave you hanging, Rodrigo managed to escape by jumping from a helicopter into the rooftop pool, just as they were taking off, at the last minute. This scene takes place in a laboratory hidden within an overgrown ancien ruin within the rainforest. In honor of Mother's Day I have chosen a snippet that fits the occasion!
What Would Mother Do?
“These were forest people, from remote, scattered tribes, and I've no idea how many more have fallen victim to the disease.”
“I’m afraid you’re right to be concerned, Kirin,” Luc said, walking up to join them. “We just had a call from Andrew and the problem may be bigger than just that Set infected more victims, because Andrew thinks the infection has gone viral at a molecular level and is mutating and spreading of its own volition.”
“It may already be too late," she said softly. Then she did the thing that all the immortal children of Isis both feared to do and yet dared not fail to do immediately whenever they encountered a catastrophic problem. She called out, “Mother,” knowing wherever in all the world her mother was she would immediately hear and respond.
It was the knowledge of her love for them and her almost limitless power her children depended upon, but it was the uncertainty of her mood and response to their handling of the catastrophe they had been sent to deal with that made Kirin hesitate.
I blog there the 18th of each month!
