Fairytale Evolution Teaser #2

posted in: fiction, teasers | 0

Meet Deez, Honaia’s mentor/partner when she moves to the city.  He’s a big, green, loud-mouthed troll who will say just about anything.  His character was inspired by my big, not-green, loud-mouthed friend Carlos, who, incidentally, is not an asshole.

“You didn’t have to be so rude,” Honaia pouted. “Do you really have PDS? There’s medications for it, you know.”
“Me?” Deez asked indignantly. “Hell no. I’m just an asshole.”
“Come on,” Deez rolled his eyes. “Give him the Mage Onus. Bat your eyelashes at him and all.”
“What the fuck happened to you?” Deez bellowed as Honaia stepped off the elevator.
“Bar fight,” she answered flatly.
“Without me?” Deez sounded hurt.

“When he finally stopped laughing, there was a pause, and then a groan. I hadn’t known that a boy could make a noise like that—soft, wordless, but rolling inside me like thunder. My thoughts were ricocheting wildly inside my skull, but the first one I could make sense of was, Oh, shit. There was no way that any of this could end well for me.”
