She'd been the honor student, college graduate, and loving dutiful mother. Played the part of super mom, loyal wife, and employee of the year. Went to church, said her prayers, and even volunteered for the homeless. Gave more of herself than she could ever receive, and yet, there was always something… missing.
With poetic writing and vivid imagery, this short sensual composition explores one woman’s quest to answer the question that has shadowed her throughout her life.
Night was fading.
Moonlight trickled in through the branches and spotted the ground with patches of light like random spatterings of an artists brush. Dried foliage rattled in the breeze.
Oh, how she didn't want the night to end. It would only mean she'd have to go back. Back to a life of mortgages and mini vans. To the reality of society. And, back to the questions of why she had spent the last two weeks hiding out in this small cabin. Alone. Away from the phones and the worry of work. Away from everyone.
"It's nobody's business," she whispered into the darkness.
She took a sip of wine. Fitting she'd killed the entire bottle in one evening. It was over. The whole trip had been pointless. Another dead end in a life filled with the same.
Shifting her position in the rocking chair, she curled the blanket closer.
Just one more hour until the moon crested over the tree line. Then she would go in. Tomorrow would be her last day. She'd planned on spending it quietly packing and writing in her journal. A vain attempt to return home with the memory of her lost moments of solace. If only if there was some momentous event that she could include. A passing inspiration. Something. Anything except but the dull tedium of the realization that maybe everyone else had been right.
"Flowing and lyrical, almost poetic, Silver Tipped by author Lea Jardin is a pleasurable read. Written from the point of view of the nameless heroine you hear and feel the thoughts she feels. You experience her fear and the desire she feels for the mysterious one who seems to answer her call. I especially enjoyed the imagery of the forest and the descriptiveness of the heroine's emotions and experiences. A short enjoyable paranormal read, this is a well-written wolfie book designed to sink your teeth into." FALLEN ANGEL REVIEWS, Reviewed by Johnna, http://fallenangelreviews.com
