Third Time’s The Charm: Chapter 1 Spoilers

I should probably mention that I meant this to be a one shot. And then I couldn’t stop writing. All kinds of other stuff needed to happen before their HEA, so I was forced to keep going (practically at gun point. My muse is a terror, I tell you!). Also, FairytaleAmber stepped up to the plate and helped me edit this story. Give her some love, she’s amazing. Please to enjoy:



Quinn. What a waste of time. I can’t believe he lied about everything. I learned more about him in a five-minute conversation with Jake than I have over the few months we’ve been seeing each other. It’s not much of a relationship, that’s for sure. We spent one night together. One night. That’s all he’s willing to give me. I think I deserve more than that! He hasn’t even kissed me since I’ve been here. He’s too busy working. Same old story, different day.

Sookie checked the stage, hoping to catch another glimpse of Eric. Now there’s a man who knows how to give me what I need. Why didn’t I try harder to make things work with him? Why is everything so complicated?

Sophie-Anne touched her arm. “Sookie?”

She blinked, erasing the thoughts in her head and focusing on her boss. “Sorry, I got a little … distracted.” She gave her a half smile. “What were you saying?”

“Kentucky and I need to talk. Will you go fetch our missing luggage?”

Sookie nodded and excused herself. She glanced at Andre’s blank face before she left. She shuddered as she thought about what could be churning around in his mind. He’s definitely not thinking about lying boyfriends or longing for exes. That’s for damn sure. She had almost made it to the door when she noticed a tray of wine glasses filled with blood tipping toward her. A shriek left her lips as the syrupy red liquid spilled down the front of her blouse and dripped on the floor.

The server who had been carrying the tray apologized up one side and down another as he bent over to clean up the shards of glass, revealing Frannie with a gleeful smile plastered on her face.

  6. jules3677 says:

    Nice tease. Now all I have to do is think up what to do until Friday. Hmm. What to do? Who to torture? Where to torture them? Its okay now, I have an idea. Till Friday. 🙂


    • Well? Don’t leave me hanging! Who did you decide to torture, and where are you going to do it? 🙂


      • jules3677 says:

        She was tortured overnight. She has Stockholm Syndrome. Cuz she woke me by licking my hand at stupid o’clock this morning so I would get up & open the back door. Honestly as if the meows hadn’t already woken me. I torture her & she tortures me … every day. Happy now?


      • You have one of those too, huh? I have a cat that is crazy and weird and frisky and then sleeps next to my face. It’s a good balance. 🙂

        And yes, I’m very happy!

    A new story, your muse is a reader’s dream come true (but it does sound like she abuses you a bit). Seems that Quinn is in the rear view mirror now, which is a very good thing.


  8. msbuffy says:

    I love the tease! I can’t wait to read everything your muse has dreamed up for this fun piece! Seems as if Sookie’s on the right track so far – dumping Quinn!

    Oh, that conniving little bitch! She doesn’t know who she’s messing with…


  10. FairytaleAmber says:

    Oh Quinn, You stupid fool! I met a fellow trubie at an art fair years ago when I had only read up to DTTW and she had recommended skipping ahead to ATD. Wish I had listened…but now I get to read the right way this book should have happened. I can’t wait to see more!!! I love your writing and this is another A+ to add to the collection!

    Can’t wait for more!

    Very good start! Can’t wait for Friday! 🙂
