Greetings, all! I thought I would share some snippets from The Caver's Kiss. I hope you enjoy them!
The opening was small and I shimmied through it, knowing that I faced a 40-foot drop once I was through. "No worries," I said. "If I am not back in town this evening, you can assume I was eaten by a fire-breathing dragon."
Rivers was his name...Ed Rivers. He said, if I liked caving, I might want to try out a little-known cave near Wheston.
I couldn't help but pity the people who walked overhead every day with no idea of the stunning beauty beneath their feet.
"Hang on!" I shouted, hoping whoever it was wouldn't panic or do anything stupid until I got there.
In the distance, I heard several voices. "Kana!" they seemed to be shouting.
"Uh-oh." The little girl hunched her shoulders. "I'm in trouble."
The man smirked, unalarmed by Ally's terror. "And here I almost thought you were Sleeping Beauty," he said.
