My teaser this week is from Scintilla.
Brandon swallowed, stood up and waved.
Hey!” He debated using the name Raul or the more formal, Mr. Fierro. “Raul,” burst out of Brandon’s mouth before his brain made an actual decision.
Raul stopped and turned toward him. Brandon’s heart sank when it appeared Raul didn’t recognize him. A split second later his expression softened and he offered Brandon a small chin jut before making his way to where Brandon waited.
“Everything okay? Your bike wasn’t stolen or anything, was it?” Raul asked.
“No. I was just checking out the town and saw you.” Brandon sort of told the truth and immediately cursed himself mentally when Raul arched an eyebrow. The man was a werewolf. That meant he heard heartrates change and could sniff out changes in body chemicals when someone lied. “I mean… c-could we… are you hungry?”
Raul put his hands in his jeans pockets and stood regarding Brandon calmly. He seemed to be studying Brandon, looking for something in his face or body language maybe. It was unnerving.
“Brandon,” he corrected immediately.
Raul nodded and said, “Brandon, look I think I know what’s going on here. What you’re feeling isn’t real.”
“I—you don’t know that.”
“Yes. I do,” Raul said. His voice was firm, kind and Brandon realized he’d had this conversation before.
Raul turned as if he was going to leave, so Brandon darted forward and put one hand on Raul’s forearm.
