Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing MONDAY! Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance.
Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Ash went back to the table to find Jun gone. His manager told him that Jun remembered that he had another engagement and left. But Ash didn't believe that.
This weekend, I'm skipping ahead quite a bit. Ash texted Jun to find out what happened, but all Jun said was that they were too different before blocking his number and him on social media. TK texted Ash to say that his manager said something to Jun, but he didn't know what. Three weeks has passed since then, and Jun has just closed the record store he works at and is taking the deposit to the bank machine. Enjoy!
At the bank machine, I put in the deposit then had the receipt emailed to Kathie so she could do her bookkeeping.
I caught the scent again. Vanilla and brown sugar. So sweet, just like him. I pulled the card from the machine, certain I was imagining it all.
But when I turned around, he was right there, maybe twenty feet away. Not easily recognizable in sweats, an oversized hoodie, a ball cap pulled low, and a face mask. Almost the same outfit that I’d seen him in the night before his debut, but this time without any fancy adornments.
He pulled the mask down to his chin and waved. “Hi.”
**That's ten, but here's a little more for your reading pleasure.**
“Hi,” I answered, not moving. I wasn’t going to be rude, but I wasn’t going to run up to him, grab him, and swing him around as my leopard cat wanted me to do.
“Can we, um...talk?”
I shook my head. “I don’t think we’re allowed.”
He glanced behind him to a familiar face, one I hadn’t noticed was there until now. “I know what happened. And, um, I’m sorry for that.”
“Not your fault.” I glared past him to his manager, the one who’d told me that people who lived in my neighborhood were leeches on society, and that the whole area should be bulldozed over. “You have no reason to apologize to me.”
“I really need to talk to you.” Ash took a few steps forward while his manager remained in the same spot. “Can I give you a ride home?”
I held up my motorcycle helmet. “I got my own ride.”
He stepped closer. “Then, can you give me a ride home?”
I chuckled at the humor in that question. I wasn’t supposed to be near him, or have any communication with him, but now he was asking for a ride to his actual home with his manager standing right there? Yet, when I looked at the guy, he simply nodded, as if the rules he’d told me no longer applied.
HIS OMEGA ON STAGE
Shifter Towers book four
For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him that those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.
As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album. Being a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard like the rest of his family has always made him feel small and insignificant. But now he’s about to shine bright in front of the world, all on his own, without an alpha by his side. He doesn’t need one, and definitely doesn’t have time for one. Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.
On StageBut with all the problems that fame brings, will Ash be able to make a relationship work? Will Jun fight for the omega he’s sure is his fated mate? Or will they let each other slip away, believing what they have isn’t enough?
