Here is an exclusive excerpt from Scales
He tried to understand the questions in front of him, but he had to ponder the concept. He wasn’t about dreams. He was all about goals. Dreams were nebulous. Airy and light. Weightless. Euphemism for useless. He was a planner. A-one-foot-in-front-of-the-other-and-walk toward a specific end point kind of person. Not for the joy of the walk but because he was going to get somewhere specific. He was all about specifics. That he was here in this damn class said he was doing one of the steps that he needed to do to get on with his life.
Another check box was being marked off. Good. He wasn’t into therapy, not his own at any rate. At least not now. No, he couldn’t really say for sure why he was here except because of Jenna herself. He’d heard about Jenna’s classes and had even attended several of her evening lectures. But he didn’t need her class. He’d said as much to her. That’s when she’d smiled that really witchy smile, her eyes glowing with laugher, and she’d challenged him to attend. To show that he’d taken care of his stuff. That there wasn’t anything else she could show him.
He’d snickered. “Hell,” he’d said, “of course I could do it, but I don’t need to. I wouldn’t pay good money for something like this.”
She’d laughed and said, “If you think you’re immune, then write up a paper on it. If it’s any good, I’ll help you get it published. If you find out you’re not immune, we’ll revisit the subject of the report at the end.”
Now that appealed. His portfolio was missing published articles – particularly in peer reviewed journals. He didn’t know if having a shrink’s name on his paper or her help in getting a paper published would count for much, but it was on his bucket list. And damn it, that bucket list was important.
So he’d accepted the challenge. He was here.
So no, he hadn’t been tricked into attending, but… it almost felt like it. Or maybe it was that he felt played… and had taken the bait. He was where she wanted him to be.
To observe? To write his insights? There was lots of fodder here. Some of these people needed serious help.
He shook his head and scratched the word dreams out and replaced it with the word goals. When he was done, he realized the odd sound in the background was the sound of paper ripping. He snuck a glance over at Paris to see her trying to rip out the answer she’d tried to rub out first. She was seriously determined to not let anyone see that answer. As he studied her, he realized that she’d actually ripped off the strip of paper and had rolled it up into a tiny ball.
Fascinated, he watched her struggle to find a place to hide the tiny item. He couldn’t take his eyes off it. What the hell had she written that she wanted erased so badly?
His gaze swung back to the paper and realized she’d left the other part of the paper attached. Just a long strip missing out of the bottom half. She lifted her gaze to his face. Her cheeks flared with bright color and she slammed her hand over the same hand that held the tiny ball of paper. The ball flew from her fingers, bounced on the table, and rolled toward him.
He couldn’t help it. He wanted to know what it said. Just as he reached for the paper, she snatched it up and he followed the trail of the fingers to her mouth. She popped the tiny thing into her mouth… and damn if she didn’t swallow it.
