~Excerpt~

 

“I
also have an extensive library on my Kindle HD of science fiction, fantasy,”
Keith blushed, “and gay romances that you can read.”

 

Why
do I feel like I’m dealing with a used car salesman showing me the features?

 

“How
many titles do you own?” Bobby asked wondering how much Keith read.

 

“A
thousand, at least, I read fast. I have two Kindle Paperwhites and the Kindle
HD plus an iPad and an Android tablet. I also own a PC and a Mac. I use the PC
for the businesses and the Mac for home. There are two offices in the house. I
put them in long ago, hoping that someday I’d find someone. I hope I haven’t
screwed things up permanently with us.” Keith looked frightened.

 

He
is very disturbed. His hand is shaking. It could be the booze. I hope it’s not
the alcohol.

 

“I
still love you. I just don’t trust you right now, and I have to trust the man I
marry.” Bobby had a sad look on his face. “I could marry you now because I’m
scared and alone, but that wouldn’t be fair to either of us.” Brave words
you little shit, if your trust in him was such a scarce commodity, why are you
staying here and tormenting both of you. Am I punishing him or myself?

 

Keith
put his head on Bobby’s lap and mumbled, “I understand.” Bobby felt Keith’s
tears on his knee. I caused this. I caused Keith to cry. I wonder if he’s
feeling half of what I felt when I left this house that night.
He lifted Keith’s
head. I can’t forgive him yet, but I need to be with him and no one else.
I’m such a whiny coward when it comes to Keith.

AC
Katt was born in New York City’s Greenwich Village. €She remembers sitting at
the fountain in Washington Square Park listening to folk music while they
passed the hat. At nine, her parents dragged her to New Jersey where she grew
up, married and raised four children and became a voracious reader of romantic
fiction. €At one time she owned over two thousand novels, until she and her
husband took themselves and the cat to New Mexico for their health and its
great beauty.
Now, most of AC’s books are electronic (although she still keeps six bookcases
of hardcovers), so she never has to give away another book.

kitty and at ackatt.com where you may find snippets of her current releases, as
