With Mystic Perceptions coming out on Wednesday
I thought I'd post another excerpt.
Brent just sat there and looked at her. Reid stifled a
sigh. They were pulling his leg, right? This was a joke of
some kind. When she continued to stand there, without so
much as a smirk, he frowned over at his partner. Reid shook
his head in disbelief.
“It can’t be paper or clothing,” Jac said quietly.
Brent reached into his shirt, pulling out his chain and
pendant. Lifting it over his head, he handed it to the crazy
woman standing there, patiently holding her hand out at
Reid gave her a ‘you’ve got to be kidding’ look when
she stepped in front of him. When she continued to stand
there, looking at him impatiently, he leaned back and pulled
his keys out of his pocket. Working the pendant off the ring,
he handed it to her and leaned back again. He knew his
blood pressure was going to spike shortly if they didn’t stop
screwing around, then he was going to start yelling.
Sandy sat down behind Jac. “Ready?”
“Yeah.” Jac held up her hand, palm up. When the
doctor lowered Brent’s chain into it, Jac closed her hand
around it and she took a few deep breaths as if she was
trying to find some focus.
Reid knew Brent was waiting for them to say “Gotcha!”
too. When he heard Jac laugh softly, he figured it was now.
Jac shook her head. “Really, Sandy--next time please
specify something they weren’t wearing during sex.” She
grinned. “Cute blonde, though Brent; love the lady bug tattoo.”
