I've been sharing from my WIP, The Tree of Life, Book II of my Illuminati series. Kirin is trying to make sure that she and her brother Luc are sent after Rio, the shapeshifter who managed to escape from her mother's telepathic command to stay, in the jungles of Brazil. Isis, not fooled by Kirin's attempt to atribute her interest to scientific interest alone, demands to know how Kirin knows the identity of the shapeshifter. She wants to know Kirin's true interest. Let's eavesdrop on this royal family scene again...
“He has a habit of escaping,” Andrew said, swallowed, and then added, “he was in the lab so we had to take him with us, but he jumped out of the helicopter into the rooftop pool and got away.”
“Quite a resourceful creature,” Osiris said, chuckling.
“That doesn’t explain, Kirin, how you know he’s the shapeshifter, the same creature who was outside the ruins in the rainforest, unless he revealed himself to you while he was in the helicopter.”
Andrew shrugged and all eyes were on her then, waiting for her to explain what defied explanation. “I can’t know for sure, but as soon as you said it, I just knew he was the one. It’s his eyes; Rio has the eyes of a cat, the grace and movements of a cat. I sensed his presence without knowing what I was sensing at the time, not until now. You know it too, don’t you Luc, she said, looking up at him.”
The doors opened, and she glanced over to see Sekhmet, enter, but added, “You knew he was there before anyone else, didn’t you?”
“Of course he did,” Sekhmet said, "they come from the same DNA strand.
I hope you enjoyed the snippet I posted for Elizabeth this week. She's so busy getting ready for tomorrow's Book Signing. I'm not sure what that is, but I don't think I like it because I don't get to go. I guess I'll go take a nap and think about all the mischief I'll get into while she's gone. Don't forget to visit all the other wonderful Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday Authors to discover some great reads!
I blog there the 18th of each month!
