decisive moments

by Iris Blobel

Her mouth curved into a tentative smile and with some exaggeration she replied, “Yes, I am.”

He frowned, sensing sarcasm in each of these three words. “I suppose I deserve that. Stupid question. I’m sorry.”

Her gorgeous smile did all sorts of things to his insides. “Yes, it was.” Yet, she didn’t offer more.

After a brief, but silent moment, he offered her his hand. “Tyson.”

She ignored it, though. “Nice meeting you, Tyson.”

He chuckled. “This is the part where you’re supposed to tell me your name.” Her sigh was enigmatic as she stared into the distance. Aware of the fine line he was treading here, he contemplated leaving. Yet, a pull towards her, something irresistible, and, yes, some curiosity as to why she sat here early in the morning with a sadness written all over her face didn’t let go of him. The urge to get to know her was growing by the minute. The fact that something was hurting her was obvious by the tears, and everything inside tugged at him to help.

BLURB

Can their new love survive the return of his past?

With his first year as a pro footballer behind him, ruckman Tyson Gaspaldi meets Katie while on a holiday in a small coastal town. Everything about her intrigues him, and he wants nothing more than to spend some time with her. Once she finds out how he earns his money, though, she hesitates to take whatever it is between them any further.

Katie Cassidy is still overwhelmed by the recent loss of her sister, but a chance encounter with Tyson stirs emotions and a love for life inside her again. However, when Tyson’s ex-girlfriend blindsides both of them, all of Katie’s childhood demons return and she pushes him away.

Will they be able to deal with the ghosts of their pasts and move forward for a chance of a life together?

decisive moments

by Iris Blobel

Tyson Gaspaldi parked his car, grabbed his surfboard from the boot, and walked across the recreational area to the foreshore. The cold breeze off the ocean went right through him, but it didn’t stop him in his resolve. A sense of contentment seeped through him as he glanced across the nearly empty beach. He liked the idea of being one of only a few out in the water. He loved the surf, the dunes, and the tang of sea air. The stunning blue of the Pacific Ocean was inviting, the sea was perfect with waves breaking cleanly and directly onto the beach. A fishing boat to the left headed towards the harbour, while to the right a small number of people walking briskly along the beach braved the early morning chill. He made a mental note to bring his dad to the foreshore during the afternoon.

With one quick move, he zipped up his wetsuit, jumped into the water, and paddled out to sea. Then he surfed as many waves as possible until the swell died down. Happy with his efforts, he emerged from the sea and shook the water out of his hair. As he walked back towards his car, he struggled with his surfboard against the gentle breeze and had to put it down to get a better grip on it with his hands. A woman sitting only a few metres away from him caught his attention. Even in the small distance he saw that her body trembled with subtle sobs. He hesitated, aware she most likely wanted to be alone and kept walking. Blowing out a huff, he stopped anyway as pity and helplessness grew within him. Another glance towards her, his mind told him to leave her be, yet his manners told him to be kind and do the R U Ok thing. Still unsure whether it was right or not, he walked towards her. After all, the worst that could happen was for her to push him away.

“Hey.” He kept his voice as close to a whisper so he wouldn’t startle her.

decisive moments

“Hey.” He kept his voice as close to a whisper so he wouldn’t startle her.

She wiped her eyes with the back of her hand and turned to him. Shading her eyes with the other hand, she echoed his greeting. “Hey.” The confusion of why he’d approached her was still whirling through his mind, and he glanced across the ocean for a beat to focus. Something about her held him captive. The thin long-sleeved shirt hugged her curves nicely, and so did the cargo pants she wore. She smoothed a loose strand of her curly light brown hair behind her ear as their eyes met. The beautiful green colour of her eyes shone through brightly despite her tears. He wasn’t able to walk away, but studied her for a second or two, noticing the tight lines around her lips. She had a beautiful mouth and he had an urge to touch her lips as she slightly bit them, caress them if it were to make her feel better.

He let out a soft snort. Not that long ago he burnt his fingers when a girl left him, and since then he had sworn off the opposite sex. Yet, something about the woman in front of him drew him in and intrigued him.

Scratching the back of his neck, he crouched down next to her. “Are you okay?”
