Spell My Heart Chapter 2 Teaser

Okay, if you’ve read the first chapter, you totally know what this picture is about. If you haven’t read it, well, pretend you never saw this post.

I’ve been very happy with the reaction I’ve gotten to the first chapter. I expected at least one “what the fuck were you thinking?!” review, which hasn’t happened yet. The story is still young, though.

Chapter 2, which will be posted on FFn Tuesday, is the first of two chapters that tell how Alice has gotten to where we find her in chapter 1.

Looking at her, cheeks flushed and flirting with him, he realized that he might not be the only one wishing these lunches were something more. Forgetting all the reasons why he shouldn’t, he moved toward her.

Placing his hands on either side of her, he pinned her against the car. Her eyes were a deep amethyst, and her lips were parted in a sigh. He leaned toward her and lightly brushed his lips against hers. He’d wondered what it would feel like for so long, and, when he sensed her body freeze, he was suddenly scared that maybe she hadn’t.

All his doubts were erased when Alice placed her hand on his chest and closed the minuscule distance between their mouths. Her lips were soft, and her tongue was warm and wet as it darted out and teased him. Wrapping her in a tight embrace, he opened his mouth, and the taste of the deepened kiss made his head spin. He held her slight body against his, finally feeling the curves he memorized the day she answered her door.

He groaned when Alice broke the kiss, and he leaned his forehead against hers. He was afraid to speak, afraid to hear her voice telling him this was a mistake.

Since this story doesn’t have a chapter-by-chapter playlist, I thought I’d post a interview with Billy Burke instead:

  1. What the fuck were you thinking? Leaving us with a cliffy like that? HAHA! there’s your WTF review 😉 Can’t wait for TUESDAY!

  2. I think one of the interesting things (but not the only by a long shot!) about this story is the way that it skirts peoples uncomfortable zones on the IDEA only. There are a lot of fics out there that use shock-value to gain readers by including lots of kinks and violence. And when done well, as part of a redemptive arc, I think those fics are interesting. What I love about this story is when you first told me about the idea I was concerned about the almost pedophilia aspect of the concept: Charlie’s almost twenty years older than Alice, with only that piece of information there’s an implied ick-factor.

    Then I read the first chapter and all my fears were put to rest. Charlie and Alice LOVE each other. True love not just lust, not just sex, but two people separated by the minutia of their lives coming together to realize that as a couple they are whole. And the way that you write them….*swoon* so lovely, so sweet, the age difference just melts into the background as a minor obstacle to overcome.

    Anyway, I felt compelled to write all that after our conversation yesterday. I think it’s important to remember that challenges make a story realistic and interesting, but ONLY when used as part of a broader theme. This is a concept you obviously grasp because your writing is superb.

    Great job, great story, great girl! The. End. 🙂
