I'm so pleased to have Alfie and Eren's story ready for people to enjoy, so below is a little sample from one of the chapters, with buy links at the very end. I really hope you like my story,
I wake to the sound of a strange rustling from across the room and force my lazy eyes open, but my reluctant body wants nothing more than to remain asleep. My vision stays blurry as I try to focus on my surroundings. The scene is a mass of distorted images, they seem different somehow to what I’m used to. Even the mattress I’m lying on feels softer, the linen sheets are freshly scented, like they came out of the washing machine the previous night and not days ago.
The distorted shapes aren’t the only things which seem strange. My head feels noticeably refreshed, without the usual stress hiding in the back of my mind. My body’s rested, a situation which is long forgotten, the normal aches and pains from tossing and turning all night long have disappeared.
I slept! I never sleep! I’m jubilant, and then remnants of a dream come flooding back.
His smiling face.
The way he touched my body.
My unconscious self expects to be plagued with the familiar darkness, but instead I remember the warm feelings you get from a sunny day, blinding light shining over everything, making it seem more magnificent. All this happened in dream, but why? What’s changed?
The stranger I’d met when out with Toby featured in every second of my dreams, as if he had a starring role in a movie and my head was the camera recording every scene. The boy who called himself Eren held me close to him, warm breath skating across my cheek whenever he spoke. In my dream he ghosted a tender touch on my skin, as he laid me onto long grass in a meadow blessed with a crystal clear, blue sky. He told me he liked me, and my heart played songs of love and adoration when he ran his fingers through my hair and kissed my lips.
