I hope you’re liking the story so far.
It’s fun to write, yet, challenging at the same time.
“I’d describe myself more as your guide.”
“My guide?” she repeated. “As in … you know … as in, well, you know a ghost?” She stared at her sandwich and her drink, just the same as twenty years ago when she’d spent the day with her parents out near Bigalow Creek. Her hands moved over the soft picnic rug, but for the life of her she couldn’t remember whether it was the same colour or pattern.
Hauled back from her memories by his touch, she met his gaze.
“Your hands are shaking.”
She didn’t have to check, she knew because her whole body was going through sensations that scared her. Her heart throbbed in her chest and her pulse hammered in her ears she nearly missed his words.
“I’m not a ghost, although I can see where you get confused.”
“A guide?” she asked again. “Why … why would I need a guide?”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

I can see why she might need a guide, but not why it’s him or whatever he is. Lots of mystery.
Thank you, we all need some guiding at some stage, don’t we 😉
Intriguing. Wonder what the difference is going to be between a guide and a ghost? Either way, I enjoyed the snippet! Such a neat story so far…
There is a difference I’d say, right? Thanks Veronica.
Really interesting. The sexual tension is real, but who he is, unclear. Cool.
Thank you, Shari. Glad you liked it.
I’m intrigued to know more about what he is. What is a guide exactly if not a spirit of sorts. Gotta know.
Thank you Karen. Glad i piqued your curiosity 🙂
Hmmm… Now I’m wondering if she’s dead (or dying) and he’s her guide to the afterlife.
Well, she’s not dead 😉 Thanks for stopping by PT
Reading through people’s comments, it’s apparent you’ve accomplished a difficult feat — intriguing readers while keeping them guessing.
Ahh, thanks Ed for the kind words. Really appreciated.
