Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! This weekend, I'm returning to sharing snippets from VAWN, the first book in my Sci-Fi MPreg MM Romance series, KADDIM BROTHERS.
Set-up: In the last snippet I shared from VAWN, Vawn was talking to his best friend about how he did catch feelings for Ojo, and how they both should go on vacation to forget the space racers that would never be theirs.
This weekend I'm skipping to a new chapter. Vawn and Utahn are on vacation with Vawn's daughter, Enif. But, Ojo is also on vacation. His goal is to forget every one of the Kaddim Brothers, and have a good time. Hmmm. This excerpt is in Ojo's point of view. He is out for a jog on the beach after arriving on Rennir. Enjoy!
Many of the guests were sunbathing or playing a short distance outside their fenced yards. I saw quite a few visitors I’d love to have join me in my room later in the night, but they weren’t ever alone to approach.
Then I saw him. Or, at least, someone who looked like him. Because what were the chances the guy I couldn’t get out of my head was vacationing on the same planet and in the same city as me?
I ran faster. Why couldn’t I stop thinking about Vawn? I kept my legs moving, bypassing the tourist area, until the fine sand turned to stone. My heart raced, my legs burned, and sweat dripped down my forehead into my eyes. When I finally stopped, my breathing was labored, but I still couldn’t stop thinking about him. I needed to know if that was him I’d seen or simply my mind playing tricks on me.
**And a little bit more...**
So, I went back. Only much slower. I didn’t know if it would be worse to see the sexy omega who’d snuck out of my bed without waking me or to learn it was someone else entirely. And I was afraid to find out.
When I finally arrived at the beach house, I realized the person I saw really was Vawn. In a pair of form-fitting swim trunks, he relaxed on a lounge chair, looking as gorgeous as ever. Another man and a young girl were in the yard with him, playing in the sand. Both Orezian like Vawn.
I gulped, my chest heaving but not from running. I’d made a mistake coming here. He’d moved on, something I hadn’t been able to do. Moved on and found exactly what he deserved. A family. Stability I could never give him. Heck, he probably didn’t need to move on, knowing we would never be anything more than one night. Why hadn’t I been able to think of him as such, like everyone else who’d been in my bed before and after?
I backed away from the property. It was time for me to stop hanging on to something that would never be.
“Ojokun?” Right before I turned away, Vawn sat up and adjusted his sunglasses. “Is that really you?”
Kaddim Brothers book one
Vawn doesn’t need a mate. He’s already established himself universe-wide as a hot name in fashion, while raising his daughter. But he won’t say no to a fling with a hot space racer when he travels to Eurebly to visit his brothers. One night. That’s all he can give. Because his heart shattered when he lost his previous alpha, and he hasn’t been able to repair it completely. He refuses to love someone like that ever again.
Ojokun survived on Jenegath in order to leave the planet and become the best space racer in the universe. Though he flies with a team, he’s never depended on anyone outside of his jet. He keeps to himself. Has one-night stands, just like every other space racer. But, after a mind-blowing night with the brother of two of his teammates, he can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous omega, or the foreign longing that scares him more than his overly-protective teammates.
Can Ojokun convince Vawn that he wants more than one night? Or is that all they were ever meant to be?
