BlogFlash 2012 Day Thirty: Winning
11:45. Decision time.
Rowland and Eliza, having finished the final dance of the evening, headed down to the garden behind the estate. She held his hand, afraid to let him go, even for an instant. Could she really turn her back on what she was? It’s not like there was a master UNDO button she could hit if she changed her mind. But she couldn’t live without him either.
Rowland stopped in a secluded area, behind a towering tree.
Eliza could see tears in his eyes, evidence of his fear that she would say no.
And she almost did.
“Please. Come with me,” he said.
How could she throw away someone so beautiful. Someone who had altered her life in such a drastic way. Of all the men out there, she had been blessed enough to win him. If she let him go now, she would regret it for the rest of her life.
Smiling, she said, “Yes. I’ll come with you.”
Gold sparks swirled around them, and Eliza’s body tingled as the transformation started to take hold.
This concludes the prequel to The Transformation. It has been a blast for me to expand on a story that started as a little entry into a contest. At the time, I had no idea it would turn into this! I’m so glad you all enjoyed it!
The original story and this last scene of the prequel overlap, although each has its own special set of details.
If you need to catch up on previous installments, you can read them here, or you can continue the story with The Transformation.
WONDERFUL! Yes, it’s a hard decision, but once made, the most natural in the world!!! Yay!!! This has been such a mysterious and romantic series – going to miss my daily doses!! 🙂
Ha!! I knew she’d go with him. What a great idea you had to make this story up with each prompt. You did an amazing job!! I’m kind of sad not having one of your stories to read tomorrow. : (
So glad she went! But just read ‘Transformation’…
Loving your writing Christina!
Yay! She went with him. I had a feeling she would. I’ve got to read Transformation now! I’ve loved every one of these posts, Christina, it’s a shame it’s come to an end – I’ll miss my daily intake! However, I won’t be missing your writing as I’m now following your blog!
Anyway, great post to finish with 🙂
This is the second happy ending I’ve read today, and I’m thrilled. It’s brought such a wonderful story to a perfect conclusion. Thank you so much, Christina!
