But can Emily ignore her passionate desires for Callum? Or will he push to find out her fantasies?
"Lost?" A deep voice filled the air.
I gasped and whipped round, my eyes dart in everywhere in the room. A dark figure stood leaning against one of the pillars, their head tilted forward. I titled mine, looking curiously at the dark figure.
Then, when I didn't answer the voice prompted me impatiently. "What's the matter? Can't you speak?"
I wrinkled my nose and crossed my arms across my chest. "Yes, of course I can."
"What are you doing in here?"
I didn't respond, just stared. The voice released a deep and tired sigh. "Another one that can't work it's tongue."
"Who are you!?" I exclaimed in a loud whisper.
"Who am I? Who are you!?" The voice matched my dramatic tone and I suddenly felt like my Mother.
"Oh...wait. I know you." The voice said suddenly calm.
The figure began to step forward and I retreated a few steps back. He stepped into the light and that's when I wanted to run. Run straight out.
