Forgetting is hard to do.

Tori McLeod survived the sadistic

wrath of a madman at the

cost of the love of her life. Always a survivor, she’s determined to move on

with her life, for her sake, and the sake of her son, even if she has to leave

everything and everyone behind.

Two years have passed since

she lost Sebastian Chelios. He

was gone, but Tori can still feel the raw magnetism pulling her toward a


Relationships change and new

bonds form. Budding feelings

tempt Tori, but she continues to ache for Sebastian.

Whispers of danger lurk around

the corner and questions

regarding Jose remain unanswered.

Can Tori move on with her life

when a dark shadow from her

past revisits her? With Jose still being out there, will Tori and her son ever

be truly safe?


Two years had passed since

Sebastian Chelios had

died. Two years since being told that Jose Alvarez was still out there. And two

years since I was told I was pregnant.

Pregnant with Sebastian’s baby.

God, who knew that that would happen?

A result of my forgetfulness of taking

the pill. But it was well worth it when I looked into the eyes of my baby.

Sebastian’s baby. Our child.

I tried to forget. But the calendar on

the wall beckoned like a tease, and my eyes darted to the dreaded numbers. My

mind went back to those horrible couple of days.

It was like a bad horror movie in my

mind. Jose kidnapping me. Sebastian showing up. Us both shot. The blur of the

hospital. My lover. Dead. Doctors and nurses in my face. Then news of the

pregnancy. My head whirled when I got sucked into my thoughts. Real, as if it

was yesterday. Realizing I would have to raise a child on my own.

But now…every day I looked at Antonio

and ached. His eyes had slipped from blue to brown, and he reminded me so

of Sebastian.

His father would never see him. Never

know him.

Fresh tears filled my eyes but I shook

them off. I headed to the front door and made sure it was locked. I looked out

the window and noticed a big black car a couple of houses away. Relief

fluttered through me. The Feds were watching. Protecting me and my son from


A scream came through the baby monitor

on my counter.

I ran up the stairs in my small two

bedroom house and headed right to my baby’s room. After throwing the door

I stood there, panting, gripping my chest as my heart raced against my rib


My son lay there, looking up at me

from his crib, a big smile on his beautiful chubby face.

I sucked in a breath and tried to ease

the thumping in my ears. “Hi, baby. You sure like giving your mama a heart

attack, don’t you?”

He giggled. Yup, definitely

Sebastian’s kid.

About the Author

I'm a new self-published author

who just got introduced to

the writing world early 2013. My aunt suggested that I write a story because

I'm an avid reader but I waved it off and left it alone. Well this year, a story

came to me and I went with it. It took me a little bit but I finally got a

story idea that worked and now I can't stop or control the characters/stories

that keep popping up in my head.

I'm born and raised in Canada and I live with my very

wonderful and supportive husband, Michael. We don't have any children (yet)

unless you count our two cats. He's been my rock through this whole new

experience for me. I couldn't have done it without him and my friends and


One of the many things I love

about this new chapter in my

life is that I'm learning constantly. It's never a dull moment and as long as

one person likes my story, I am happy.
