I recently signed a contract for the sequel to To Hiss or to Kiss. This snippet is from that WIP, tentatively titled To Growl or to Groan. In this scene, the main character, Chloe, just finished getting a rather harrowing tarot reading.
“Rest with the messages and take what you can from them. Let them bring you insight and add to your own wisdom. They are not meant to tell you exactly what will happen, and whatever you imagine now, may not be what the cards wish for you to know.”
I stare at her delicate hand over mine. Her skin is darker than mine, but still rather pale. I don’t know what to think about this reading. Panicking will do me no good, nor will griping. Goddamn it.
