HUMP DAY HOOK is a weekly blog hop where each participating author posts one paragraph from either a published book or work in progress. My excerpt comes from Trails of Love I Crawl Part 2. Meet Viktor, a charming impostor, a gambler with life, a loner desperately struggling to revive love he lost. This snippet portrays his thoughts about Belial. Enjoy reading.
Hmmm… if somebody could make him feel better, it was the High Demon. The realization trickled into Viktor’s mind like honey onto a wound. Slowly and causing discomfort everywhere it touched. Despite the smarting sensations, despite the sticky feeling… honey had the power to heal. But Viktor decided to dismiss the cure. He wouldn’t have needed anybody to alleviate his pains, had the demon not caused them in the first place. Yet, still he couldn’t decline the offer. His thoughts picked up the pace as he tried and tried and tried to find an acceptable answer. And then the solution peeked out from behind the clouds of indecision like a sunray. He would let just his body get the easement. But not his mind. He wouldn’t grow attached. And would run away. Satisfied with his shrewd decision, he nodded again and loosened up.
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed a peek in Viktor’s mind. Click here for a complete list of Hump Day Hook participants and help yourself to more one paragraph teasers. Tweeting Hump Day Hook posts is encouraged, using the hashtag #HDH.
