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.

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."

Something familiar….End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia glanced at the journal that she still held in her hand. "Earlier, did you knock the journal off the desk?" She met his gaze then. "And if you did, how are you able to touch the journal but you can't touch me?"

Now for the snippet.

***The story has not been edited.

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

"I concentrated on moving the air around the journal so I wasn't actually touching anything." He lifted those broad shoulders of his in a shrug.

She remembered that gesture from when she was little. Something so familiar it made her eyes sting. She missed the gesture that had been so much a part of him. How had she forgotten about it until now?

"I'm not a scientist or whatever," he was still talking and she had to force herself to concentrate on his words. "I told you I don't know how this works or why." His gaze slid over her with what she thought might be appreciation.

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

Not ten sentences, but this was a better place to stop. The next few lines need to be together so they don't sound odd.

Just passing through… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia didn't believe in ghosts until her father, who died tragically 23 years ago, appears to her. She's still trying to wrap her mind around the fact that ghosts are real. We're jumping ahead a few sentences in this snippet from last week's. She threw a few questions at her father. One she asked if her mother could see him. Her father told her no, but he thought she could sense his presence.

Now for the snippet. Cecilia glances at her father, taking in his appearance all at once...

***The story has not been edited.

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

Her gaze met his, blue eyes so much like hers. "Dad?" she said and her voice cracked with emotion. If for a moment she believed the impossible, this was her father. "Daddy?" slipped out before she could stop herself and she crossed the room to him. He opened his arms to her, but instead of feeling the comfort of his embrace she passed right through him and a cold tingling sensation and a crackle of electricity followed, making her shiver in response.

She whirled around to find her father had turned to face her too. His eyes widened and he seemed just as stunned as she felt. She tentatively reached for him again and though he appeared solid, her hand passed right through his upper arm and the same cold tingle spread through her fingers and the crackle of static echoed in her ears. Touching him didn't really shock her like static electricity, but she did feel something, like a resistance where he stood, as if the cool air numbing her fingers was actually the substance that made up her father, but there was nothing more. He was not a solid form, not like someone who was alive and not dead.

Seeing is believing… Right? End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: The man claiming to be her father who die twenty-three years ago disappeared then reappeared again, making her believe ghosts just might be real. He told her he'd been trying to make contact with someone.

Now for the snippet...

***The story has not been edited.

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

"You've been dead for twenty-three years so what do you mean you've tried?" Then she realized what she said. Did she really believe she was seeing her father's spirit? Hell, she was talking to her father's spirit.

"Twenty-three years," he repeated then seemed to ponder those words as if he'd lost count of the years he'd been gone from the world of the living.

"After all this time, why can I see you?" she asked even though her mind argued this couldn't be happening. "Can Mom see you?" she threw another question at him before he could answer the first. Lars is here, her mother had stated. Only, she hadn't believed her, since she thought the alcohol and drugs were doing the talking.

He shook his head.

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

So what has changed that she can see him now?

Don’t scream… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: The man claiming to be her father, who died 23 years ago, just disappeared. He was standing there one moment then poof he wasn't.

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

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

She blinked and blinked again. Had she really seen her father's spirit? "No. Not possible."

However before she could fully convince herself, a shimmering light appeared where he'd been standing seconds ago and the floor lamp dimmed and brightened. Then the Lars Lookalike was zapped right into existence once more as if he never did his disappearing act, looking vibrant and alive and definitely solid.

"Don't scream," he warned with his hands up in a calming gesture.

"I'm losing my mind," she said to herself but the Lars lookalike seemed to think she was speaking to him.

"You're not. I've been trying to make contact with someone, anyone...in what seems like forever."

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

Well, he's made contact now. lol

Now you see him. Now you don’t… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia laughs at the intruder's claims that he is her father. Her father has been dead for 23 years and this man could only be in his twenties. The man doesn't appear pleased at her response but before he could say more the floor lamp flickers.

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

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

Just as the room threatened to go dark, the crackle of electricity brought the light bulb back to life once more.

She stared wide-eyed at the Lars Lookalike for a full two seconds before she realized why something seemed off. She could see the lamp standing tall and bright but not to the side of him; she could see the lamp right through him as if his body mass had suddenly gone transparent. She closed her eyes then reopened them again as if doing so would clear her vision, but nothing changed.

"What's wrong?" he asked with concern.

Now, wasn't that a loaded question? "You're..." she pointed at him and swallowed the lump in her throat. "I-I can see right through you."

The Lars lookalike glanced down at himself and cursed then said, "I'm sorry," before he winked out. It was the only way she could explain what she witnessed.

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

I don't know about you, but that would certainly freak me out. lol

Don’t Make Me Laugh…End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet: The stranger claims to be her father who died twenty-three years ago. If that's true why does he look like he hasn't aged a day?

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.

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

She laughed and it came out like she'd lost her mind, but she had a full-on nerd moment with his, 'I'm your father' crapola. She'd watched an old sci-fi movie recently where the evil guy, with a definite breathing problem, revealed he was the father to the hero of the movie. What a sick joke and in a weird way this was no different. Her father had been gone a long time and even if this guy's claims were true, which they weren't, where had he been for twenty-three years?

"You have a warped sense of humor," she said with a chuckled, but then reined in her laughter when Lars Lookalike didn't appear amused, but really what had he expected? She cleared her throat. "Listen, I'm not sure what you think you're going to gain here by pretending to be my father. Sure, you look a lot like him, but there's just one flaw. My father, if he still lived and breathed, would be fifty years old."

His expression plainly revealed his annoyance with her and he opened his mouth to say something but closed it again when the floor lamp behind him dimmed.

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

Can't really blame her for not believing him, can you?  lol

Could it be? End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet: Cecilia finds a stranger in the house who looks a lot like her father. Only he's been dead for twenty-three years...

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

He took a step toward her again, but her words made him pause. "You tripped the silent alarm when you broke in here and the police are already on their way," she threatened even though it was a complete and utter lie.

"I know this has gotta be freakin' you out," he said with his palms up as if he were surrendering to her.

"Breaking into someone's house will do that to a person."

"CeeCee, think about this for a moment. I didn't break in."

She narrowed her eyes and her heart began to race all over again.

"You know who I am," he continued.

She shook her head even though she knew what his next words were going to be.

"I'm your father."

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

 Well that would be a shock. However, will she believe his claim?
