Teaser Tuesdays (6)

Teaser-Tuesdays
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teasers

Lish was surprised to see me again. “What is up, Evie?”
“What’s my classification?”
She frowned. “What do you mean?”
“I mean, what’s my classification, Lish. Look it up. Now.”
“They only classify paranormals. You know that.”
“Well then, I shouldn’t be in there, so it won’t matter if you try to look me up.”
“I suppose not.” She shrugged and waved her hands in front of her screens. Then her eyes narrowed. “Oh.”
“What?” My stomach felt like a brick, heavy and sharp in my abdomen.
“I – you – there is a classification.” She looked up at me, concern shadowing her face.
“What does it say?” I whispered.

Sometime during the course of the festivities, Ash dissapeared. Frowning, I scanned the courtyard for him, searching for a pale face and dark hair among the chaotic sea of fey. He wasn’t in the courtyard, as far as I could see, and he wasn’t at the table with Mab and Oberon…

There was a soft chuckle beside me and my heart stopped. “So this is Oberon’s famous half-blood,” Ash mused as I whirled around. His eyes, cold and inhuman, glimmered with amusement. Up close, he was even more beautiful, with high cheekbones and dark tousled hair falling into his eyes. My traitor hands itched, longing to run my fingers through those bangs. Horrified, I clenched them in my lap, trying to concentrate on what Ash was saying.

“And to think,” the prince continued, smiling, “I lost you that day in the forest and didn’t even know what I was chasing.”
