Trask (annother excerpt: short)  Reply with quote  

Rough excerpt, as always. The physical characteristics and mannerisms of Fibi are based completely on my dear friend Sherilyn who has no idea that she is running around, armed and dangerous, in my imagination. I'm hoping she'll pose for the cover (one can dream about having a cover even before publication, right?):


Quote:
“My name is Trask.”

His voice was a boulder pushed across granite. His register was so low, Camille became a bit dizzy. When he stopped speaking the boulder stopped moving forward and simply turned round with each breath, making gravel. He extended his hand.

Monte regarded the size of the creature's palm and hesitated. When he responded in kind, his arm disappeared up to the elbow. It was released with light bruising.

“Camille, first camera,” Monte indicated the open-mouthed Swede. “Fibi, our guide. Marcos, second camera and sound.” He refrained from rubbing feeling back into his wrist. It hung limp at his side.

“Pleasure,” Trask rumbled. He regarded Camille with black eyes.

She leaned back, a nearly imperceptible movement. Her eyes dropped away from his face and were snagged on the front of his baggy jeans. There seemed to be a snake traveling up the length of his right thigh. She shut her mouth, perplexed. She opened it to ask after his pet, then realization struck and it snapped shut again. She flushed in such a manner that Fibi thought the cold Nordic blonde would burst into flames.

“How's it hanging?” Fibi thrust her hand toward the bull. With a movement faster than would be expected from such a large creature, he stepped forward and swept Fibi off her feet, pulling her into a hug that threatened to snap her back. She popped audibly. The creature nuzzled her neck, snuffling her hair, leaving ropes of snotty drool in her blond dreadlocks. She patted his back wholeheartedly, even as she gasped for breath. After a few moments, she began weakly pulling on his left horn, then his ear. “Easy, big fella. Set me down...” her voice trailed off.

He let her drop and stepped back, still gripping her shoulders.

“I take it you two are familiar,” Monte said.

“Little sister,” Trask cooed and the foothills trembled.

“Hey, big brother.” Fibi was shy. She placed her hands on his forearms. The bull-man leaned forward and touched his forehead to hers.

Marcos whispered to Monte. “Those two are related?”

Monte shrugged. Camille flirted with a swoon.

Fibi slapped her brother's face playfully. He stood back and she turned around to face the onlookers. “Trask and I came out of the same woman. We're not exactly related but we're about as close as you can get around here.” She indicated his horns. “He's got bison blood.”

Camille asked, “and what blood do you have, Fibi?” She knew the question would be considered rude even if uttered with honeyed sincerity.

Trask growled deep in his chest. “Fibi is human. Pure human.” He stepped forward, looking her up and down. He drawled, “and you are part fire, part ice.”

Camille fell back, nearly tripping over her own feet. Marcos held her upright by the arm.

Fibi smiled, pleased the woman had been forced to swallow her sugared words. “I am as human as you can get around here.” She sniffed the air in Camille's direction. “Or as human as you can stay.”
