I liked the anonymous note asking for Teaser Tuesday - so here it is! It's not too evil, at least to me. Of course, I go to Thai restaurants and order extra extra spicy, and it's not too hot, either.
Stop over at the twilighted thread and say hi!
There's an author interview regarding Unexpected Circumstances on the So You Think You Can Write? blog. Check it out!
And now the teaser!
“Did I give you permission to speak, Sir Edward?”
“Then don’t do so again unless I ask it of you, understood?”
“Yes, my Queen.”
Daring to peek from between my fingers, I watched from the corner of my eye as Edward first held the Queen’s stare, and then slowly dropped to his knees in front of her. He placed his hands – stilled balled into fists – on his thighs and bent his head down. I quickly hid my face again as my heart continued to pound.
“You listen to my words, Edward Anthony Cullen, Lord of Masen, and listen well.” The Queen’s voice was low, and I could hardly hear her words. “This has been a complete and total disaster, and there is one person and one person only who is responsible for it.”
“I think I’ve figured that-”
“Yes, my Queen.” I could barely hear his words to her, but the Queen spoke loud and clear.
“You, Edward,” Esme said. “You are responsible for this."
Uh oh....Mama's not happy... ;)
