Yet, he still won't tell me why he left me that morning.


I hope he's not worried about his friendship with my brother.


This game of cat and mouse, hot and cold has to come to an end, no matter how much I yearn for him.


I try to move forward, but fate has a twisted sense of humor.


And now I’m pregnant with his baby

The woman he stalked and wanted to kill was not the woman he had once pursued. In the end it had all been a mistake. Or was it? Had he been fooled, by his own madness?

Survival: A World to Build

An extract from the book: The stabbing pain was the first sensation I felt. Then it was slowly replaced by an itching, burning sensation all across my face. As if the world wanted to remind me that there was more to my body than an itching tender face, I felt a myriad of sharp objects cutting into my back and backside. Putting my hand up still with my eyes closed, I felt the tip of my nose with a gentle brush of my fingertip. This sent off a burst of pulsating pain again as if somebody had brushed a spikey cactus across the tip of my tender nose. I quickly pulled my finger back as the pain still pulsated like somebody had hooked my nose with a barbed fishing hook. This exasperating movement set off the other pains from the back of my body as I felt the tens of jagged points dig in and cut into my back as if somebody was massaging me with the coarsest sandpaper grit they could find.
Freezing in place as I figured that movement equaled more pain at the moment for my body. For a few seconds, I extended my awareness to my intensly sore body. I tried to take in as much information as possible. I started to think deeply rather than just react to the immediate pain. The sun was hot; that was a reality, as I could feel the radiation hitting my face like a constant low-level burn. Thankfully, a light, pleasant soothing cool breeze was easing the sensation of the burning sun somewhat. The rest of my body was lying prone on the ground as the tens of sharp points from the ground testified to me as they dug into my back.
What can I see? was my next thought as bright, blurry redness was all my eyes could detect. My eyelids are closed to the world, was the thought that came into my consciousness. In reaction, I tried to blink in rapid succession. This only resulted in more pain as I felt as if somebody was scraping splinters across my eyeballs. My eyes must have cracked open for a fleeting second as I saw a bright blue sky above my head. Which was quickly replaced with a stab of pain as I screwed my eyes shut again. I need to take it slower than that, I thought.
I moved my hand slowly with great effort as the rest of my arm followed reluctantly. As the skin flexed and strained, I knew that my face was not the only part of my body that was heavily sunburnt. Eventually, with some grim determination, I had the palm of my hand across my eyes. The red light went dimmer as my eyes were now shaded. I forced my eyes open again as I ignored the cutting pain as if I was ripping apart a wound full of hard scabs that flaked into my eyes. Blinking out the white bits of what I hoped were just dried eye gunk. I eventually got a clear view of the underside of my hand.
I lay there as my eyes got used to the light for a few seconds. Then experimentally, I moved my hand to increase the light level. This, at first, gave me a stab of pain that hit the back of my eyes like somebody was trying to plunge sharp red hot needles into my retina with a twist to increase the agony. I persisted as I slowly removed my hand for a while, and the clear blue sky was revealed once more in all its glory. Suddenly, as my eyes were getting used to the brightness of the blue sky above, a dark shape appeared in my view. This dark shape formed into the face of something with a large black snout with orange-tan color around the rest of the face. Except for some darker areas that made up a pattern like the animal had a face mask.
My heart burst into rapid beating as my first reaction was to try to roll away from this animal's face. However, with the stiffness in my muscles, I found I really couldn’t move. The snout covering my entire field of view opened, revealing a cavernous mouth full of white pearly teeth. They all were of different sizes but what was most worrying was the large jagged canine teeth that I could now see close up. Suddenly a giant red tongue extended from the mouth that I was entirely focused on.
