Reading Sample of “Sleeper”

Would you be so kind as to lend me your time for me to tease you with a sample of my book, Sleeper?

Sleeper

Chapter One: Angel:

A chilly pressure settled atop Masami as she slept in her futon. Fingertips like icicles brushed against her pale cheek before running down her neck. Her toes curled as the cold grazed her skin. Strong arms wrapped around her waist in a loving embrace while a warm breath rested on her throat. Butterfly kisses touched her neck as trembles of delight took over her spine. Her fingers curled around the sheets underneath her with each kiss. Rough hands moved down to her hips, clutching them in a firm grasp. A small whimper escaped her lips in between pants. Her lover’s touch felt so cold that it ignited her own warmth within. Masami drew open ice blue eyes filled with desire, but confusion greatly filled when she saw who was on top of her tonight. Hideki lay on top of her gazing down with a melancholic smile on his face. He looked just as handsome as ever with his engaging chestnut eyes locked deep into hers. The moonlight from the small bedroom window cast a ray of light on his short brown hair. His tone muscled body reminded Masami of the time after her father’s funeral.

Just like at her mother’s funeral, Masami hadn’t shed a tear during the entire service for her father. She hadn’t even cried when the casket was taken away to be cremated. Though she only caught his glances, Masami could tell that Hideki couldn’t stand to her stoic like that. After the funeral, Hideki found Masami standing on the back porch of her childhood home staring at the vacant courtyard in the high afternoon sun.

“There you are,” he said as he approached her. Masami looked up, but said nothing. Her boyfriend came by her side and embraced her in his arms.

“How are you doing?” he asked in a low voice.

“I’m fine,” she replied. Her trembling in his arms told him otherwise. He gave her a peck on the cheek.

“Listen, if you need someone to talk to about anything, I will be here for you,” Hideki told her in a low voice. Masami returned her focus back to the courtyard in front of them.

“Thank you, Hideki-kun,” she said in a low voice. Since then, he became her samurai even in times when she could stand on her own feet. Tonight, her beloved Hideki found his way.

However, he died six days ago in a car accident on his way home from a friend’s party. The doctors pronounced him dead on arrival at the hospital In fact; Masami came back from the funeral hours earlier. She narrowed her eyes at the man on top of her.

“Hideki-kun?” she whispered. Masami could see herself clearly in his tired eyes as he brushed her bangs from her face. Hideki planted another kiss on her lips.

“My love,” he whispered as he slowly pulled away from her. “I’m home.” Masami’s eyes darted around her darkened room, looking for the door. His calming monotone voice filled her soul with unsettling ease. Masami tried to shake off what she was seeing as a dream.

“But…But… you’re dead,” she mumbled, shaking her head. “W-Why are you here?” Hideki placed his finger to her lips as he shushed like a father trying to calm down a crying child. His gentleness did little to settle Masami down this time. Her mind screamed at her to push him away, but her body wouldn’t react. Her dead lover leaned down and kissed her. He buried his fingers within her long black hair. Masami’s body jumped when Hideki slipped his tongue past her lips. Please let me go, she thought. I never treated you badly in life. Why are you doing this to me? A small smile came on his face as he pulled away from her. For only a second, she could’ve sworn that she saw a weakened light flicker in his eyes accompanying his expression.

Hope it was worth your time. Please go rent, buy, and/or review my book.

    So very descriptive! This is wonderful writing – evocative, full of emotion without being maudlin or overly dramatic. More please!
