He’s baack! End of the Road #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last time: In the light of day, Cecilia can't believe she told her ghost father to go away. She's at home, having breakfast and trying to ignore her father's journal sitting in front of her on the table.

In this scene, it doesn't read exactly how it does in the book. Sentences have been deleted to meet the 10 sentence limit. 🙂

**********************************************************************************************************************

 

She opened her laptop and went through the ritual of retrieving her emails before she pulled up her website to look at her schedule for the day. She clicked on her folder with photos of the bride-to-be in her wedding gown, and a few close up shots so she could see the contours of her face and how best to flatter her features.

"Man, she's hot."

"Holy mother..." Cecilia jumped out of her seat and whirled around to face her father who gave her a sheepish shrug.

"Sorry. Didn't mean to startle you."

"I-I thought you were gone." A flood of emotion assailed her, but relief proved to be in the forefront.

"I took a chance you didn't mean it when you told me to get lost." His lips curved into a lazy smile and for a second she recognized the reason why so many women had fallen for his charm. "Am I right?" he asked.

Can’t keep my eyes off of you… End of the Road #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: In the light of day, Cecilia is rethinking her hasty decision to run away from the ghost of her father.

**********************************************************************************************************************

With her mother's needs taken care of, she headed downstairs to the kitchen. She spotted her father's journal sitting on the kitchen table. Harmless enough, but she couldn't help but think the book somehow aided her father to manifest so she could see him. Hadn't he said as much to her? She shouldn't have taken it, but in her haste to leave last night, she'd forgotten she still had it in her hands. She would have to return it and soon before her mother fixed the lock to her father's music room.

She reached for the coffee filters on the counter and proceeded to make her morning brew. She then retrieved the oats and nuts cereal and a bowl from the cupboard. Next she took out the almond milk from the refrigerator. With breakfast in hand, she sat down at the table where her laptop waited for her, but the journal kept drawing her attention.

What have I done? End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia is overwhelmed from meeting her father, who just so happens to be a ghost. She did what any other person might do. She fled.

In this snippet she's had time to think about her hasty retreat.

**********************************************************************************************************************

"Ghosts aren't real," Cecilia said as she stared at her reflection in the bathroom mirror. In the light of day, she wondered if she had imagined the whole conversation she had with her father. "Ghosts aren't real," she said again, but it lacked conviction she needed to wholeheartedly believe that statement. She'd seen her father's ghost. Had talked to him. She frowned as she remembered her parting words to him last night. "People are trying to prove ghosts are real and you tell yours to get lost." Why in the world did she tell him to go away?

Once she dressed for the day in comfortable black slacks and a blouse, she placed a call to her mother's psychiatrist, and then she rang Fritz to tell him about her mother's episode last night.

I was asked if I had a book video for End of the Road. I didn't, so I put a teaser together this weekend. 🙂 Enjoy!

Where are you going? End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia is overwhelmed by the conversation she's been having with her father who has been dead for 23 years.

**********************************************************************************************************************

"Where are you going?" her father asked in disbelief.

"Home. I don't want to see you again. If there's one thing I do know: Growing up, I survived just fine without a father. So, I most certainly don't need a ghost dad now."

"CeeCee," he called after her, but she didn't turn around. She couldn't when her mind finally clicked into flight mode. Her only thought was escape. Not because she feared her father's ghost, but because she feared herself. She couldn't let him into her life. He was dead and the dead should remain that way no matter how much you wished they were by your side.

Can’t deal with this… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia accused her father that he was going to divorce her mother so even if he hadn't died, he was still going to leave her.

***The story has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

"Is that any way to talk to your father?"

She threw up her hands and laughed, a harsh and unforgiving laugh. "Father? I grew up without a father. You died when I was three years old," she told him and tears stung her eyes again as all the hurt she thought long buried resurfaced. "I can't do this. This is not real. It just can't be." She strode around him to avoid contact. Real or not, she didn't want to experience the frosty sensation she felt moments ago when she thought she could hug him.

In the end, you left… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Her father was offended that she would suggest that he  purposely drove his truck off the pier.

***The story has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

Her eyes narrowed and she ignored his words. "You were going to divorce Mom. I know, so don't deny it. You were leaving us."

"I'm not denying your mom and I had problems and we talked about divorce, but it didn't mean I wouldn't see you. You're my kid, CeeCee, and I wouldn't do that to you."

"Yep, well you did in the end. You left me. If you didn't purposely drive your car off the pier, then your dumb ass was too drunk to realize you were taking a wrong turn and you weren't heading out to the highway."

His hands flew to his hips and his features hardened.

Time for the truth… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia asked her ghost father if he purposely drove his truck into the ocean. Here's his response...

***The story has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

"Why in the hell would I do that?" he sputtered in disbelief.

"That's how it happened," she told him. The authorities may have deemed his death an accident, but his intentions still remained shrouded in doubt. "You and Mom threw a Christmas party here. You two fought and then you stormed out of the house."

"And you're telling me I drove my truck off the pier?" he asked. "No way. Not me. I wouldn't check out like that. I had you to consider."

Getting to know you….End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia is still trying to accept she's talking to her father's ghost. Their conversation is a bit awkward...

Now for the snippet.

***The story has not been edited.

**********************************************************************************************************************

"I knew you'd be a hot babe when you grew up–with my genes and your mother's–and damn, that didn't come out right at all, did it?"

She lifted an eyebrow at the sudden change of subject then realized this entity, this ghost, may be her father, but he was only a twenty-seven year old man when he'd died and it would seem his way of thinking had remained dormant. For him, life had stood still. He would be forever young and somehow that thought broke her heart, but for now she pushed the despair away. "Thanks?" she said more like a question, since she was unsure how to respond to his impromptu comment.

"Sorry, didn't mean to sound creepy. It's just...well, you're all grown up," he said and his voice choked even though he tried to cover it up by clearing his throat.

With all the times she'd imagined what she would say to her father if she had the chance, this conversation didn't even come close. She had others though. "Did you purposely drive your truck off the pier?" she blurted out and pointed as if he could see through the walls to where their private pier stood.
