Nature’s Destiny Sneak Peek

I’ve  pondered  over  what  to  write  this  week  for  a  few hours.  My  indecision  wavering  from  one  thought  to  another.  It  was  my birthday  yesterday  and  while  I  received  many  gifts,  I  realised  I  had  a  gift  to  give  in  return.

For  my  followers,  readers  and  fellow  writing  enthusiasts  my  gift  to  you  today  is  a  sneak  peek  at  the  first  chapter  of  my  novel,  Nature’s  Destiny.   As  I’ve  previously  posted  my   Prologue,  it  seemed  only  fitting  that  I  follow  on  from  that.  I  hope  you  enjoy  reading  it.

Hysteria penetrated my  body.  I  couldn’t  think  straight  and  my  head  thumped  from  the  blinding  pressure.  I  could  see  black  dots  floating  above  my  eyes.  I  knew  I  was  about  to  pass  out.
                I  tried  to  breathe  evenly,  taking  big   gulps  of  air  and  letting  them  whoosh  out  of  me.  I  couldn’t  pass  out,  not  now.  I  had  to  stay  calm,  I  needed  to  work  out  what  was  going  on.  I   stuck  my  head  between  my  legs,  which  should  have  worked,  but  made  no  difference.
                The  searing  pain  in  my  head  increased  and  I  felt  the  urge  to  give  in  to  the  darkness.  I  couldn’t  resist  it  anymore.
                I   woke  up  to  the  sound  of  my  phone  ringing.  I  stretched  my  arm  out  and  patted  the  bed,  but  it  was  no  use  I  couldn’t   find  it.  I  was   too  sleepy  to  really  care,  and  I  could  feel  the  pull  of  my  dreams  drawing  me  back  to  sleep.  The  phone  could  wait,  for  now  I  needed  to  rest.
                I  could  hear  a  faint  pounding  in  my   dream,  it  matched   the  rhythm  of  paws  hitting  the  ground  as  I  ran.  The  noise   grew  louder  the   closer  I  got  to  my  destination.   “Luna,  are  you  there?  Come  on  girl,  open  up!” Huh,  that’s  odd,  I  could’ve  sworn  that  was  Sky’s  voice.
                The  constant  thudding  increased  and  my  head  started   to  hurt  all  over  again.  “Luna,  I  swear  if  you  don’t   open  this  door  in  two  seconds  I’m  going  to  kick  it  down!”  With  that  threat,   I  realised  I  wasn’t  dreaming  anymore,  that  was  definitely  Sky’s  irritated  voice  I  could  hear.  Intent  on  keeping  my  door  on  its’  hinges  I  leapt  out  of  bed  and  dashed  through  the  house  to  open  it.
                “Geez,  Sky,  there’s  no  need  to  get  all  dramatic!” I  couldn’t  help  sounding  sullen,  I  was  enjoying  my  dream  too  much  for  it  to  be  over.  The  second  I  opened  the  door  she  came  barging  in.  “Hello,  to  you  too!”  OK,  so  maybe  I   was  grumpy,  but  she  deserved  it.
                I  closed  the  door  behind  her   and  turned  to  face  her.  She’d  better  have  a  good  reason  for  interrupting  my  sleep.

  2. I knew this was about wolves once I saw that her name is Luna. And the paw prints in the dream. And the helplessness incessant presence of the dreams. Gah! I didn’t read the prologue – maybe I should go back and do that – but I’m excited to have come in contact with another self-publishing author. Good luck!

    • I’m glad you picked up on the little hints. My novel is full of them! If you read the prologue – do let me know what you think. I did enjoy your opening page – I have yet to fully look at your blog! Thank you, and good luck to you too! All the best!

      • Thanks so much! Yes, I’m very observant of the hints, as you’re never to give all the answers at once. I’m definitely heading to read the prologue and I will share my thoughts.

        I also noticed that we are using the same theme – great minds!

      • Yes, it’s like an amalgamation of information to be solved at the end! Awesome, I hope you like it! I’m a sucker for the paranormal/supernatural theme! Werewolves and Vampires – Yummy!

      • Same! I favor Vampires more, though – my protagonist is one. When I’m in the mood for warmth and fur, I lean over to the enemy’s side, haha!

        Heading to the prologue in just a moment.
