SnippetSunday: Afterlife 2016 Valentine’s Day Collection #SnippetSunday

Welcome Back Followers!!!

 

FunFact: This story came to me while I was massaging a client at work. I thought I felt something touch my foot during session and I nearly screamed. Turns out it was just a piece of the bottom sheet the brushed my foot. This made me have an idea of a massage therapist who communicates with spirits. Crazy how I got the idea from all that but I’m happy with the outcome of this story. There are plans for more Scotlynn adventures in the future.

This snippet is from an Anthology called Be My Everything and my story is called Afterlife.

*******

Helping clients at the spa jump started my true career. Referrals started coming in from clients I helped. I saved enough money to open a little storefront office I named Afterlife.

Now that you have my beginning, let’s fast forward to the middle of this tale, which happens to be three months ago on February 12, 2039. I’m twenty-eight, short and in good shape with long light-brown hair streaked with gold highlights.

While working, I wear stylish and comfortable clothes, like jeans and cute tops. My favorite running shoes are a must. I never know where my job will take me. The night where it all began, I was working late, filing paperwork I’d put off doing for months, when a client enters the office around 11pm.

This client is why I died. His name? Marshall Kingston. My biggest crush in high school and the last person I thought to come to me…as a spirit.

The Day of the Dead takes on a new meaning, when the dead don’t stay dead. Dr. Valentina Bellmonte, a cancer survivor, is the new coroner at Hope Memorial. Her faith is put to the test when a body arrives at the morgue drained of blood and the man responsible for the crime is sporting fangs. Could vampires be real?

Her good friend, Dr. Xander Carlisle seems to know the truth, but he’s unwilling to confide in her. He has a secret of his own and it’s not just how he feels about her, but something else entirely, something he’s forbidden to reveal. Will their feelings come to light, along with his secret?
