MIAPT BC Anticipation bites deep within her as she thought about the one she’s always loved. The Yule feast is her only opportunity to make her best friend notice her, once and for all. Yet she wonders if she’ll actually succeed.

Taking the time to prepare herself for what’s to come, she can’t help but ponder whether she’s making the right decision. Yet the heart always wants what it cannot have and she’s determined to draw his gaze to hers one last time. Deep inside, she wants more from her best friend and is not content with their remaining as just friends.

Doubts circle inside her head as she arrives at the feast in search of him. Everything about him draws him to her, something she can never deny. Taking a chance, she gives in to her desires. As she gives it all she’s got, she realizes she never actually imagined having exactly what she’s always wanted. Yet sometimes, good things come to those who wait.

While this is a short story, it was quite titillating. Serena built the story up very nicely and kept the pace consistent through all of it. The story itself was quite intriguing, even if it didn’t have any character names. The end left me wanting to read more, though. Overall, it’s a good read.

SZ PictureAbout The Author:

Serena Zane currently lives with her husband and her son in the Northwest. Working full-time at a day job, she also plays hard, and spends her free time studying the Middle Ages in a re-creationist organization called the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc (SCA).  Much of her time is spent between training for heavy armored combat, learning about music in the 16th Century, and writing her novels.

Serena started writing at an early age with short stories, and poetry inspired by her mother,  a strong independent woman who loves to help others, and wrote her own stories.  Dark Hope was picked up and published by Southwest Publications in 2008.

In 2009 Serena became a member of Romance Writer’s of America, and has been working on her craft with the wonderful members of the Olympia Chapter.  Though she does love the Middle Ages, and will most likely write a historical romance in the near future, she fell in love with the idea of writing a contemporary action/adventure romance while she was attending college to study Criminal Justice.

After months of working on homework assignments late at night that made her want to turn on every light in the house, she decided it would be a great idea to take some of the ideas running through her head and commit them to paper.

Serena has recently stared exploring the world of Short Story writing and will soon be releasing her first Short through Books To Go Now.
