#SixSunday: Layla's Doubts

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday! Please take a look at the official site and find lots of other talented authors who share their work on Sundays. You can also follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #sixsunday. Thanks in advance for the encouraging comments. I truly appreciate all of them!


For this week's post from ONCE AGAIN, my YA Paranormal Romance that's currently available in eBook and print, we're getting a glimpse into Layla's mind, just as the doubts about Luke's affections first begin to plague her.  She begins to wonder if his feelings are merely "leftovers" from their past life... fearing that once the mystery of their reincarnation is solved he'll realize that he doesn't really have feelings for her in the present. And although she really hates those "stupid, teenage-girl insecurities", she can't help herself from wondering... and being afraid.



Even though I believed my own feelings to be genuine, what if the strength of my affection for him had more to do with our history and less to do with our present? What if Lucas was driven only by what his visions showed him? What if he hadn't actually chosen me?  What if being with me was an involuntary act because of who we'd been in another century?

The questions whirled around and around in my mind, until my head was splitting and my heart aching.

Happy reading and writing!

  1. I love her teenage angst doubts! We don't have memories, but when I met Sweetie the week I turned 15, I "recognized" him and told the lady at work I was going to marry him before I even knew his name.

    He's not at ALL woo-woo, but he felt the same thing. So much so he had to hold onto a fender of a car when he left the store where I was working for the summer because he was so dizzy. We know we've done this dance before and will do it again. :)

  6. No matter how old we get, the more we feel, the more vulnerable we can feel as well-- you captured that here!


    (BTW, you might want to turn off Captcha for SSS, I just tried to submit using Wordpress, and it doesn't work. Trying Google+ now)

  7. I agree with Wendy. Don't think the special feelings away.

  8. Oooh, I like that they're very logical doubts. It's exactly what I'd be wondering in that situation.
