Happy Saturday, Seductive Studs & Sirens bloghoppers! What a perfect day for a GLBT bloghop, don’t you think?
Once again I wondered which of my books to showcase, and I decided to give you a little more from one of my WIPs that is an offshoot of All They Ever Needed. I gave you the opening lines a few weeks ago. This continues right where that left off.
“Do you even know I never got to say goodbye? I tried. I tried so bloody hard, Jaimie. The hospital wouldn’t allow me in because we weren’t legally married, then your parents wouldn’t even allow me to your funeral.” His voice broke on the last word and once again he sobbed.
It had been years since he had been in Yakima. He left town the day after Jaimie’s funeral and hadn’t been back. He was only back now because of his own family drama. “I’m so sorry I haven’t been by to see you before. I had to go, get away, or I think I might have died.” Taking a deep breath to try and steady himself, he continued, forcing a lighter tone into his voice. “I went on to med school, just like you encouraged me to. Even became a surgeon. Maybe if I’d had these credentials and this kind of knowledge back then I could have saved you.” Gripping his hands, he dug blunt fingernails into his palms to stop the idiocy. Even if he had been a doctor back then, he would not have been objective enough to treat the man he loved. Not even taking into account the fact everyone would have kept him away from the man who held his heart. Well, not today, he supposed. Today he and Jaimie could have been married. And nothing would have stopped him from being at his side.
