I’ve got lots going on, and that’s great news for all y’all! 🙂
The pirate story is progressing nicely, as are a few other things that I’m SO excited about. (Alas, that info is classified until the next email.)
Also, I’m sure some of you noticed that this is from a new email, sorry about that. Technology, it’s here to fail us! Hahaha If any of you had anything to say to me, this is my new email, once again, the other one is dead and won’t receive messages. Gotta love when people change things on you. Maybe that’s why I have that sort of thing happen to the poor people in my books so often! Forces some real outside-the-box fixes and patches.Short Story!
We’re still with Gideon here. This chapter’s getting long, but there’s a lot going on in it. I hope I ruin all of your days with how this chapter ends! (Bwahahaha!!!)
Chapter Twenty-Two – Part Three
West of Paradise, Galatia
Gideon groans as he comes back to the land of the living. As he groans, the pain in his jaw becomes quite evident and he moans loudly.
“Gideon, get up!” Sylvia’s voice urges.
“Just a second,” Gideon grunts, doing his best to not move his jaw as he spoke.
Rolling onto his back, Gideon groans again. Opening his eyes slowly, he can’t help but feel both groggy and oddly refreshed and ready to go at the same time. Reaching up to his jaw, he gingerly feels around it. Pulling his hand away, he can see that he’s bleeding. Again. Opening his jaw slightly, he runs his tongue over his teeth to make sure none of them were broken. Satisfied that he was more or less fine, he gingerly sits up.
“Come on, we have to go,” Sylvia says. She peeks around the doorway that they had all come through moments before and adds, “Now!”
“What happened?” Gideon grumbles as he slowly rises to his feet. Despite the adrenaline that is coursing through his veins, he can’t help but feel woozy still.
“Meghan knocked you out with her rifle,” Sylvia explains as she holds up the weapon, “Then she dropped it and ran. I knew we shouldn’t have trusted her. You should have let me get to the bottom of things!”
“Any idea where she went?” Gideon asks tiredly as he shuffles over to the door.
“Her prints go that way,” Sylvia reposts as she points to some freshly disturbed soil and foliage.
“Lead the way,” Gideon mumbles, “I’ll be right behind you.”
“Keep up, I don’t want her to get away,” Sylvia sounds as she starts jogging after Meghan’s tracks.
Gideon starts jogging after Sylvia, but the searing pain of his blood pumping so hard causes him to get woozy again. Blinking rapidly, Gideon briefly wonders if he is about to pass out as his vision gets blurry and his pain begins deadening. Gideon is about to call out to Sylvia, but all he can let out is a wordless whimper of sorts.
Despite being at least a dozen meters ahead, Sylvia stops and looks back, “Gideon!”
Dropping to his knees, Gideon’s body spasms and he then drops onto his side.
“Gideon!” Sylvia repeats as she starts running toward him.
Gideon blinks slowly as he watches Sylvia run and a pained smile crosses his lips. As he weakly smiles, he thinks, Here I am, bleeding out who knows how far from home. Bleeding out as a girl who’s twelve times cuter than any other back home is and she’s a Christian, just like me. What are the odds? Gideon can’t help but chuckle, Ironic that it took all this for me to find someone like her.
Sylvia slides to the ground beside him and cradles his head, “Gideon,”
Looking up into Sylvia’s eyes, Gideon allows himself to finally drift off with one final thought, I can’t think of a better way to go than this.
Yep, I just did that.
I don’t even feel bad,
I trust this might just make y’all curious about what happens next!
