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.

Love to hear your feed back. 🙂

Blurb:

Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and has been trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. His death was ruled an unfortunate accident, but he's convinced it was murder despite the fact he can't recall what happened to him in his last moments of life. Cecilia seeks help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lars' rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.

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 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...

Now for the snippet...

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

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?
