Thank you everyone!
Teaser for 'Awakened Gods':
“You need a haircut,” she tells me after she’s pulled away. I keep my arms around her middle and she leans back to examine my hair more closely. She twirls my hair around her fingers and brushes strands out of my eyes.
“I think I have to agree with you,” I agree. “We can go after your parents leave to pick up Alex and be back before them.” I haven’t had a chance to cut my hair since the end of summer and it’s now growing into my eyes.
“You can let me cut it,” she suggests with a wicked grin. I’m hesitant to consent.
“Have you ever cut someone’s hair before?”
Her grin turns into a grimace. “Yeah, Alex’s.” She pauses. “When we were five. Mom had to shave his head and Alex has never forgiven me. He tried to cut my hair so I would have to shave my head too.”
I start laughing hilariously and she soon joins in. “I think I’ll pass on the offer.”
Lexi’s eyes switch from delightful laughing to a scorching fire and her voice drops to a seductive whisper. “Don’t you trust me?” She massages my scalp before twirling her little fingers through the curls at my neck. “You know I have the ability to do anything. And I will not mess up so bad that you have to shave your head. That would be a sin and injustice to the world that I will not allow.” She trails kisses along my jaw line and all protests are forgotten.
I swallow hard. “Okay.”
She brushes a chaste kiss on my lips. “Let’s go eat.” She rushes out of the room and down the stairs, giggling the entire way. I am so going to torture her with tickles for the state she just put me in.
