Book Excerpt

There was nothing special about her. No one gasped and had fantasies when she walked into the room. 

But being noticed was Tristan’s life. 

They lived on opposite sides of the camera. He worked as entertainment reporter for the local news station. He had fifteen minutes on the air, five days a week. People tuned in to watch whenever Tristan flashed his perfect smile and used his deep trustworthy voice to tell exciting stories about glamorous events occurring in Southern California. Tristan loved the spotlight.

“Hey Solaris,” he jauntily greeted. Solaris finally looked. Raindrops had turned his pale gold hair a slightly darker shade. Even that was attractive. “Can you believe this storm? This morning it was sunny. Now the sky is falling.”

“I like rain,” she argued, “it cleans the air.”

“But I like sunshine. It’s warm and friendly.”

“Most tourists would probably agree.”

Pleased that he won their silly debate he grinned. Then in one smooth move he leaned down, cupped her chin in his palm and captured her lips in a showy kiss. Tristan always greeted her this way. When their love was new that hot possessive kiss used to curl her toes.

Today the affectionate display felt hollow.

In being honest with herself Solaris knew the showy kiss wasn’t for her emotional benefit at all. The dramatic entrance was meant to entertain his current audience, the coffee shop crowd. It had certainly captured attention. As she glance around some female faces looked envious, others looked away, and most men seemed embarrassed for witnessing the scene.

“Been waiting long?” He asked, sitting down in the other chair.

“Only a few minutes,” she lied and inside Solaris cringed at her words. She hated that she always avoided conflict between them by politely excusing his rude behavior. They both knew that he was half an hour late. Tristan should apologize. He didn’t, of course. He never apologized. If she was unhappy with something, that was her problem. 

Sorry was not in his vocabulary.
